We implore members of the House Appropriations Committee to keep the bill alive. This proposed law — had it been in place sooner — might have prevented Columbine High School gunmen Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris from getting their hands, illegally, on the guns they used in the massacre of 12 students and one teacher. It's true that there is nothing we can do to turn back time and prevent that horrible April 20, but we can make changes that will stop illegal sales... (GunPolicy.org)

Utah lawmakers are taking a punishment-and-reward approach to gun control: expel students who bring guns to school and give tax breaks to buyers of gun safes. House members Thursday convincingly passed bills to accomplish both ends. But a House committee quickly trashed legislation that would expand requirements for background checks covering sales made at gun shows. The most poignant moment in the several rounds of gun debate Thursday came when Merlinda Bradshaw... (GunPolicy.org)

RICHMOND — Alongside the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in the Virginia Constitution could soon be a new one: the right to hunt. The state Senate and Virginia voters must still approve it, but the House of Delegates today voted 72 to 27 for an amendment giving constitutional protection to hunting, fishing and harvesting game. Behind the push is pure regionalism. Lawmakers far from the cities and suburbs that increasingly dominate Virginia fear... (GunPolicy.org)

Douglas Whiteside fondly remembers the first duck-hunting trips he took with his father when he was barely five. By the time he started using guns himself at seven years of age, those trips were routine: Whiteside, his father, and his grandfather regularly went shooting together for as long as the elders lived. Whiteside, now in his 70s, still enjoys the same kind of companionship with others who share his passion for recreational gun use. Now he uses his guns mostly... (GunPolicy.org)

During the primary election season, voters are asked to decide between people more than parties. Republicans run against Republicans, Democrats against Democrats. Candidates are generally similar on the issues, and therefore must work harder to point out differences between them. In such a setting, small fissures become large policy gulfs. Jack Scott and Scott Wildman, colleagues in the state Assembly who could often look to each other for votes, have been pitted... (GunPolicy.org)

CHICAGO — A Cook County judge has dismissed part of the city's $433 million lawsuit that seeks to recoup costs stemming from gun violence. The lawsuit was filed against gun makers, distributors and dealers, accused them of negligence for manufacturing, distributing and selling guns that ended up in the hands of criminals. But Circuit Judge Stephen Schiller ruled Thursday that the city's allegation of "negligent entrustment" is mainly used to redress wrongs between... (GunPolicy.org)
