WASHINGTON — Almost every day, the three lawmakers hold a news conference, resurrecting the same pleas and plaints and seeming never to tire of their mantras. Rep. Carolyn B. McCarthy, D-N.Y., begs Americans to think about all the children killed by gunfire. Rep. Nita M. Lowey, D-N.Y., decries the influence in Congress of the National Rifle Association. Rep. Rosa L. DeLauro, D-Conn., urges common sense over abstract ideology. Sometimes other Democrats join them,... (GunPolicy.org)

Seeming to have learned nothing from the embarrassing performance of their GOP colleagues in the Senate on gun legislation, House Republicans have broken any last semblance of ranks in a wheels-off contest to produce an even weaker bill. House Speaker Dennis Hastert — trying in vain to reassert some leadership over an unruly party caucus — wound up abandoning efforts to rally the members behind any single "gun control" placebo. Instead, Republicans — divided... (GunPolicy.org)

NEW ORLEANS — Nearly a quarter of all gun-related murders are committed by people ages 18 to 20, and that age group also is more likely than any other to use firearms in crimes that don't result in deaths, according to a new Justice Department report. Vice President Gore will release the report Monday and call for the House to pass tough new guns laws during a speech before the 67th annual U.S. Conference of Mayors national meeting here. With the future of a major... (GunPolicy.org)

Because so many House members break from their party to vote with their districts, relatively few House races feature sharp disagreements between the candidates on guns. Like converging weather systems, the old and new politics of gun control collided over Michigan this spring. Predictably, turbulence followed. Michigan has long been a stronghold of the National Rifle Assn., and few were surprised when the state Legislature approved bills that would make it easier for... (GunPolicy.org)

With Congress primed to pass gun-control legislation, New Yorkers may be tempted to feel smug. The rest of the country is finally starting to share the prevailing distaste in the city for guns. Urbanites seem to be triumphing over the plaid-shirted guys driving the back roads in pickup trucks with N.R.A. decals. But it's hard to remain smug if you talk to Dr. John R. Lott. He believes that thousands of New Yorkers, particularly women in poor neighborhoods, are victims... (GunPolicy.org)

AUSTIN, Texas — A weird thing happened recently. I wrote a column in favor of gun control, and I didn't get any hate mail. None. Not a single death threat. I've been writing in favor of gun control for years, and people always threaten to shoot me in response. Although this has not increased my esteem for gun lovers, I'm used to it and put it in the category of the-sun-rises-in-the-East. There are certain subjects — the death penalty, abortion and (until just now)... (GunPolicy.org)

CHICAGO — A third of all U.S. households keep a gun in the home or a vehicle, according to a survey published Monday. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it got the finding from a 1994 telephone poll of 5,238 households, which also revealed that about 22 percent of those owning guns keep them loaded and unlocked. The poll was published in the June issue of the Archives of Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine, a publication of the American Medical... (GunPolicy.org)

WASHINGTON — House Republicans today threw the gun debate planned for Wednesday into new disarray with a surprise proposal to split it into two bills — one focusing on youth crime and violent culture and a second on gun shows. Republicans said they structured the debate that way to make it cleaner and simpler, but surprised House Democrats said it would create procedural and political obstacles to passing new gun-control measures. Both sides agreed the vote could... (GunPolicy.org)
