Out-of-towners driving through Denver can have a gun in their car for protection and youths can't be given weapons without their parents' approval, lawmakers decided Friday. People on both sides of Colorado's heated gun-control debate got some things they wanted in a pair of bills that got preliminary approval from the Senate. The "safe travel" bill, SB 154, by Sen.

SAN JOSE, California — President Clinton slammed the National Rifle Association (NRA) on Saturday, drawing a link between the U.S. gun lobby's "pressure tactics" and the fatal shooting of a 6-year-old girl. "The only reason Congress hasn't already sent me a bill with comprehensive gun safety provisions is because of the pressure tactics and the threats of the NRA," Clinton said in his weekly radio address.
