Sturm, Ruger and Co. says a new company requirement that firearms dealers sell its products "exclusively" at their regular places of business was not meant to prevent Ruger sales at weekend gun shows. At the same time, the company said it prefers not to have dealers "consummate" sales at those shows. "Our policy is that a legitimate storefront … dealer may exhibit Ruger guns at gun shows," the company said, but "we would prefer that he actually consummate the sale... (GunPolicy.org)

Hot on its heels was House bill 763, also... (GunPolicy.org)

Gun-rights advocates want to enforce the laws already on the books, but they also want to get some laws off the books. Namely, the gun laws of Colorado's cities and counties. Especially those of Denver, where police can seize the gun and car of someone found driving with a firearm. Two Republican legislators from Colorado Springs are sponsoring bills limiting local governments' ability to have their own gun laws. Rep. Lynn Hefley's bill would block any city or county...

From New Jersey Sen. Bill Bradley, a Democrat who is calling for a national registry for all guns, to Texas Gov. George W. Bush, a Republican who signed legislation allowing residents of his state to carry concealed weapons in church, the candidates are finding plenty to argue... (GunPolicy.org)
