SACRAMENTO — A day before the Legislature's final deadline, a Pasadena lawmaker has abandoned a bill to require a safety test and a license for handgun owners after Gov. Davis refused to support the measure this year. The state Senate had already approved the bill, one of the most sweeping gun-licensing proposals in the nation, but Davis signaled that he would do nothing to advance the bill in the Assembly before its midnight Thursday deadline. "Based on... (GunPolicy.org)

I have great hope that in my lifetime we can tell our children, "I remember when you didn't even need a license to own a gun." That maybe someday gun licenses will become so Americana-like fishing or driver's licenses-we'll have a hard time remembering when it wasn't so. Which makes it sad that AB 273, the gun license bill passed this week by the state Senate, has such a difficult road ahead. Its original sponsor, Assemblyman Jack Scott (D-Altadena), has decided to... (GunPolicy.org)

FRANKFORT — A gun-control organization says Kentucky has a rare distinction on the topic of protecting people from gun violence — no one in the nation does a worse job. In its fourth annual rating of the states released Wednesday, Handgun Control Inc. awarded Kentucky its first-ever F-minus to note actions by the General Assembly this year to liberalize carrying concealed deadly weapons and to prohibit local governments from suing gun manufacturers. "They are... (GunPolicy.org)

TRAVERSE CITY, Michigan — An eyeful of breathtaking scenery and an earful about gun control. Both are in store for Monday's 43rd annual Labor Day walk across the Mackinac Bridge, the 5-mile span linking the Lower Peninsula and the Upper Peninsula. Women from several Upper Midwestern states, including Ohio, who participated in the Million Mom March in Washington, D.C., last May are bringing their campaign for tougher gun laws to the bridge walk. "We're trying in... (GunPolicy.org)

Canada's police officers won't vote on the new federal gun laws until Friday. But in Halifax on Wednesday, the opening day of the Canadian Police Association's annual conference, officers appeared to support federal Tory justice critic Peter MacKay's criticism of the new gun registry. "The money allotted to the gun registry would be far better spent on a DNA registry or a sex offender registry," Mr. MacKay said as the more than 200 delegates at the Sheraton Halifax...

BAY of the SOMME, France — The full, low-riding moon is tinting the saltwater marsh a pale, shimmering silver. It's long past midnight, but Guillaume Houart is wide awake in the floating blind, quietly smoking a hand-rolled cigarette, his 12-gauge shotgun within easy reach. In the man-made pond outside, he's positioned nine caged or tethered mallards-living, quacking lures hunters call "Judas ducks," whose calls are meant to lure unsuspecting wild fowl into shooting...
