A decision by an Illinois state judge last week to continue a private lawsuit that accused the gun industry of knowingly creating an underground market in handguns has encouraged 28 cities and counties suing the firearms companies and may suggest that judges have become more receptive to innovative claims against gun makers.

When Anne Coakley got the call that her daughter had been shot, she responded in quintessential mom fashion. I'll go there, she thought, I can fix her. The mother will take care of it.

For two decades, this mild-mannered public-health professor and attorney has plugged away quietly in his Baltimore office, patiently but irreversibly changing the fundamental nature of the nation's gun-control debate. Officially, he is director of Johns Hopkins University's Center for Gun Policy and Research, but that stiff title doesn't convey the caginess with which he has... (GunPolicy.org)
