WASHINGTON — The recollection of 21-year-old Gayla Tyler's unsolved murder on Easter Sunday 1985 still makes her mother cry. All Catherine Tyler knows is that her daughter was shot four times in a Jamaica Plain apartment, and for all these years, she has been pretty helpless in waging a one-woman war against gun violence. "The pain is almost indescribable, to tell the truth," said Tyler, a retiree and grandmother who works with Roxbury's Living After Murder program,... (GunPolicy.org)

WASHINGTON — One danger in debating guns, as in firing them, is that sometimes your shots can ricochet. Republican presidential candidate George W. Bush, in attacks that echo those of the National Rifle Association, repeatedly has accused the Clinton administration of failing to enforce federal gun-control laws on the books. "I'm in favor of keeping guns out of the hands of people who shouldn't have them, like felons and juveniles," Mr. Bush said in one of the... (GunPolicy.org)

It's nice to think that there are clear answers to the heart-wrenching tragedies that befall small children. And in the aftermath of the shooting death of 6-year-old Kayla Rolland, U.S. politicians appear to believe they have found a clear answer-trigger locks. In Washington, President Bill Clinton declared it "a happy day" when firearms manufacturer Smith & Wesson agreed to include trigger locks with all new weapons. In Lansing, Democratic lawmakers waited all of 48... (GunPolicy.org)

Chuck Schumer was in the Judiciary Committee hearing room of the Rayburn House Office Building and his recollection of the place brought a smile. This was where, as a House member who was a persistent and crafty advocate of gun control, Schumer had some memorable jousts with persistent and crafty representatives of the National Rifle Association. "I think it was in this very room that we actually had the NRA admit they wanted people to be allowed to own bazookas,"... (GunPolicy.org)
