CHICAGO — The recovery of dusty old police blotters containing handwritten accounts of every homicide in this city from the time of the Chicago Fire in 1871 through the tumultuous gangland era of the Roaring Twenties is offering criminologists a rare glimpse into a notorious culture of violence and providing lessons for today's criminal justice system. Apart from giving historians grist for discussions of crime patterns a century ago, the newly computerized data from... (GunPolicy.org)

WASHINGTON — Another day, another school shooting-and another brief focus by the media on gun control. But believe it or not, despite the rash of high-profile school shootings in recent years, not one major gun law has passed the U.S. Congress since 1996, when those convicted of domestic violence were prohibited from purchasing firearms. As of Monday evening, it's unclear if there could have been any reasonable way to prevent the troubled 15-year-old Santana High... (GunPolicy.org)

WASHINGTON — In the nation's capital, reactions to the school shooting in the San Diego suburb of Santee on Monday followed what has become a familiar script. There were official words of solace to the victims. There were pledges to campaign against youth violence. And, inevitably, there was a renewed call from some quarters for stricter gun laws. But even among gun control advocates, the bottom line was unmistakable: Prospects are slim that a Republican-controlled... (GunPolicy.org)

The school shooting in suburban San Diego yesterday that killed 2 students and wounded 13 students and adults was clearly the worst since the Columbine High School massacre in April 1999. But there have been others. Last February, for example, a first grader in Michigan killed a 6-year-old classmate, and in May a 13-year-old in Florida killed a teacher. The episode also follows a disturbing sequence of near-disasters that have been averted because students kept their... (GunPolicy.org)

The total number of weapon-related incidents in Minnesota schools dropped last school year to the lowest level in five years, according to a report released Monday by the Children, Families and Learning Department. However, the number of incidents involving lethal firearms increased from 29 in 1998-99 to 37 in 1999-2000. The weapons report came out on the same day as a California community was sorting through the tragedy of another school shooting. "We've been... (GunPolicy.org)

SANTEE, California — The "angry young man" who opened fire at Santana High School Monday morning shot at least two of his victims in the back and fired indiscriminately at others who walked into his view, authorities said. The suspect, identified as Charles "Andy" Williams, 15, of Santee, fired about 30 rounds from a .22-caliber Arminius long rifle revolver, said Lt. Jerry Lewis of the San Diego County Sheriff's Department homicide section. The eight-round weapon was... (GunPolicy.org)

Of all the hot-button issues on California's political agenda over the past decade, few have stirred greater emotion than gun control. Last year, Gov. Gray Davis tried to cool things off by calling for a moratorium on new legislation, citing the need to allow time to assess the effectiveness of a package of measures enacted in 1999 banning semiautomatic weapons, limiting the sale of handguns, banning "Saturday-night-special" handguns and requiring trigger safety devices...

In the worst school shooting since the 1999 massacre at Columbine High School, two were killed and 13 wounded Monday by a 15-year-old freshman in a high school just north of San Diego. This is the sort of tragedy that is almost impossible to eliminate in a society awash with firearms and saturated with violent imagery, much of it aimed at an age group renowned for peer-group cruelties. Yet it is also the type of tragedy that has already inspired new approaches to... (GunPolicy.org)

Before we proceed with our analysis of the 15-year-old high school freshman accused of shooting and killing two students and injuring numerous others in California, we'd like to draw your attention to the opposite coast, namely Philadelphia. The same day this week that the California teen-ager was toting a loaded .22-caliber revolver around his high school, an 8-year-old Philadelphia boy was lugging a 9 mm semiautomatic handgun to his elementary school. Two different... (GunPolicy.org)

According to national school safety experts, Santana High School is in a district that seemed to do everything in its power to foster a safe and secure environment. The 24,000-student Grossmont Union High School District, in a cozy suburban San Diego County bedroom community, employed well-trained safety officers, offered conflict resolution courses, encouraged students to alert administrators to potential threats and hired additional counselors to help detect and...

WASHINGTON — From Bobby Kennedy to Columbine, gun violence has spurred a rush of gun control legislation in Congress. The school shooting in Santee, Calif., could be the exception. Gun control lawmakers, who had trouble passing legislation when they had an ally, Bill Clinton, in the White House, realize they face a tougher task now under President Bush, supported by the National Rifle Association, and a generally pro-gun Congress. Bush did not mention the need for... (GunPolicy.org)

SANTEE — Some classmates described the 15-year-old alleged shooter as a "nerd" and a "dork" and said he was taunted relentlessly. Others said the high school freshman told them he was going to shoot up the campus but they didn't take him seriously. "We thought he was joking," said Neil O'Grady, 15. "We were, like, 'Yeah, right."" While they didn't want to warn authorities, he said, friends did check "Andy" Williams for weapons Monday morning, but didn't search his... (GunPolicy.org)
