WASHINGTON — Gun-control advocate Tom Mauser expressed misgivings Friday about President Clinton's bold proposal to license all new handgun purchasers. "I think it's probably farther than what a lot of people want to see," said Mauser, whose son Daniel died in the Columbine High School tragedy April 20. "Right now, we're just trying to deal with some very basic gun-control issues, like closing the loopholes at gun shows." Mauser's concerns about the proposal, which... (GunPolicy.org)

WASHINGTON — With Congress on record as dead set against even minor restrictions on gun ownership, President Clinton's proposal to license all handgun owners, his most ambitious gun control initiative, seems more like a political ploy than a serious attempt to crack down on handguns. No sooner had the president disclosed Thursday night that he would seek congressional approval for a national plan to license handgun owners and require them to pass a safety course than...

WASHINGTON — A top Clinton administration official expressed hope Friday that the president will have an unusual ally in the fight for new gun legislation. Deputy Attorney General Eric H. Holder said in an interview he believes the National Rifle Association actually may support some of Clinton's proposals, including the president's call for tougher federal enforcement of existing gun laws and placing more federal prosecutors and law officers on gun cases. NRA... (GunPolicy.org)

Saying Senate President Lane Beattie's so-called guns-in-school bill amounts to "capitulation, not compromise," Utahns Against Gun Violence on Friday joined educators and parents in opposing the bill, which would allow people with concealed weapons to continue to bring their guns into schools, with notification to the principal. "Senator Beattie's bill does nothing to change the balance of guns in schools," said Bill Nash, chairman of Utahns Against Gun... (GunPolicy.org)

President Clinton's proposal to license all new handgun buyers is unlikely to get through Congress and would be even harder to implement around the country. But the president has stepped onto what many regard as the next battleground for gun control. Licensing gun buyers, the way drivers are licensed, is anathema to the National Rifle Association, just as gun registration is. But licensing is the kind of easily understandable, potentially appealing strategy that gun... (GunPolicy.org)

Robyn Anderson may be right that it was too easy for her to buy the guns used in the Columbine High School massacre, but Gov. Bill Owens says she's no victim. "There are many victims of her actions, and she's not one of them," Owens told reporters Friday. Anderson went to the Colorado Capitol on Thursday to testify before a legislative committee in support of requiring background checks at gun shows. She said she wouldn't have bought the guns for Eric Harris and Dylan... (GunPolicy.org)

In one of the first applications of a federal gun law in South Alabama, a U.S. district judge ruled Friday that a Mobile man who had a prior domestic violence conviction could carry a gun. U.S. District Judge Richard W. Vollmer dismissed an indictment charging Michael Vincent Minor for carrying guns after he was convicted for verbally threatening his wife — charges that under the 1996 federal Gun Control Act could have carried a sentence of up to 10 years in federal...

Griffin Dix need not ask for whom the bell tolls-it tolls for his dead son, Kenzo. Kenzo Dix died at age 15 in May, 1994, the victim of an accidental shooting. His parents' lawsuit against gunmaker Beretta U.S.A. failed in Alameda county Superior Court and is pending before the state Court of Appeal, but Griffin Dix is not waiting for justice's slow grind; he is taking his agenda to the streets with a ringing bell as his call to action. On Wednesday, he was busy... (GunPolicy.org)

After hours of hearings, statements and political maneuvers, the only thing clear about the gun debate in the Colorado Legislature is that nothing is clear. Most of Gov. Bill Owens' package of gun-control proposals is on track, with one more proposal to be heard in committee next week. But defiant members of his own Republican Party are pushing several gun-rights bills, including one that would "pre-empt" most city and county gun rules, allowing people to carry guns...
