When it comes to iconic campaign images, it is hard to beat the moment, a month after the tragedy at Columbine High, when Al Gore strode into the Republican Senate, commandeered the ivory gavel and broke a tie to require background checks on people who buy weapons at gun shows. It was, he declared, "a turning point for our country." You could almost see the ad in the can. But in that same chamber 14 years before, Gore cast some other pivotal votes-ones that made him a...

Tucked off a side road in southernmost Prince George's County, a squat, gray factory sits behind a tall, discreet wrought-iron fence. Security is tight and unusual: Visitors go through a metal detector on the way out. It is the headquarters of Beretta USA, one the nation's leading firearms companies and the only gun manufacturer in Maryland. At the Accokeek factory, the company makes the U.S. military's standard side arm and supplies pistols to 2,000 police agencies in... (GunPolicy.org)

To cut gun violence, you don't need new laws, you just need to enforce existing laws: So goes the gun lobby's mantra, repeated each time new limits on guns are proposed, no matter how modest or appropriate. In fact, stopping the bloodshed in high school libraries and suburban office buildings will take both vigorous enforcement of existing laws and new measures to keep guns out of the wrong hands. President Clinton used his State of the Union address last month to... (GunPolicy.org)

Linda's experience as a military spouse was far worse than she'd bargained for. First, she says, is the violence that she suffered over the course of a two-year marriage to a Naval officer. Second, she says, is the military command's refusal to discipline her husband despite its knowledge that the husband had not only physically threatened her with a handgun, but with an illegal handgun. Linda (not her real name), says that following a fight when her husband pulled the... (GunPolicy.org)

Cracking down on sales of guns used in crimes, the President signs an executive order — and avoids a congressional showdownWith less than a year left in office, it appears that the arts of cajoling and persuasion are too long a process for Bill Clinton. So the lame-duck President with legacy on his mind has been using a new tool in recent weeks. Wielding a defiant pen, he has signed a rash of executive orders, circumventing the involvement of the Republican-controlled... (GunPolicy.org)

Albert King points to his .44-caliber, 1851 Colt revolver and its $36,000 price tag. Next to it is a cheaper model, an 1851 Navy Colt revolver, priced at $21,000 and authenticated with a letter from the manufacturer. Some people could pay off their home mortgages by selling the two weapons. King likes to watch folks admire them. "That's how much they're worth, but I'll negotiate," King said, grinning, as he eyed potential customers at a recent Oklahoma City gun... (GunPolicy.org)

UTICA, New York — By almost a two to one margin, 1,201 adults last week declared "enough, already" to the enactment of new and tougher gun legislation to fight crime. Six in 10 of the respondents to the Zogby America poll taken in February want better law enforcement of current gun control statues rather than more gun control laws, while 34.7% said more laws were still needed. What we asked: "Which of the following statements best represents your position on gun... (GunPolicy.org)

TULSA, Oklahoma — Three Tulsa mothers are working on a grass-roots effort to do something about gun violence. On Mother's Day, their group, Oklahomans for Gun Safety, will try to rally thousands of mothers and "honorary mothers" to march to show support for tough gun-safety measures. The rally supports a national march in Washington, which has been called the Million Mom March, also on Mother's Day. "There's a resounding feeling among people I know that says we've...
