State Rep. Tim Bearden (R-Villa Rica) said Wednesday that he plans to introduce legislation to make extensive changes in Georgia's firearms laws.

As relatives tried to come to terms with their loss, investigators said they believed... (GunPolicy.org)

Gun control opponents in Virginia's legislature are proposing what would amount to a vast roll-back of handgun regulations, hoping to capitalize on a friendlier administration in Richmond to undo long-standing firearms restrictions. Conservative lawmakers have filed a flurry of bills including abolishing the state's one-handgun-per-month rule and allowing college faculty to carry a concealed weapon on campus. Despite the arrival of Republican Gov.-elect Bob McDonnell,... (GunPolicy.org)

An effort by the Riverside County Board of Supervisors to make it easier for residents to carry concealed firearms isn't likely to change policy, the Sheriff's Department said. In a 3-1 vote in November, supervisors passed a resolution asking the sheriff to consider applications for permits based solely on "personal defense." Supervisor Jeff Stone, author of the resolution, pegged the issue to the potential release of thousands of California inmates as part of a plan... (GunPolicy.org)

But there was no revocation and the store remains open, operating as Badger Guns. Federal records show the license recommended for revocation was voluntarily relinquished, the players inside the operation took on new roles and a new license was... (GunPolicy.org)

The public can't see records that reveal whether gun dealers are following the law - thanks to Congress.

That law required ATF to heavily redact inspection documents on the West Milwaukee gun store that has operated as Badger Guns & Ammo, Badger Outdoors and Badger Guns, agency officials said. The law also limits... (GunPolicy.org)
