A measure that the Los Angeles City Council is predicted to pass this month would prohibit the sale of various handguns in the hopes of deterring crime. But critics argue that it's ill-conceived legislation with no crime-stopping value. Councilman Mike Feuer is the sponsor of the proposed ordinance, which calls for outlawing sales of "ultra-compact handguns" within city limits. The Los Angeles Police Commission gave its nod to the measure this week, and it now goes... (GunPolicy.org)

WASHINGTON — With gun-control legislation stymied in a Republican-led Congress, Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) yesterday proposed bringing together gun-control groups and gun-rights groups to draw up a voluntary "code of responsibility" for gun owners. In the aftermath of the fatal shooting in a high school near San Diego, allegedly by a 15-year-old with his father's gun, Schumer said it is time to stress parental responsibility for firearms. "We've had such a... (GunPolicy.org)

WELLS, Minnesota — A mother-daughter crusade to boot an annual gun show out of the public school here has taken on new meaning in the wake of Monday's school shooting at a suburban San Diego high school. The two women-Renate Camp and her 21-year-old daughter, Shanda Enger-say it's wrong to hold a gun show in a school. They have worked for four years to move the Sportsman's Traders Show out of United South Central School in Wells, where it has resided on a March... (GunPolicy.org)

The school shooting in suburban San Diego Monday was a collision of the worst in American culture. Our worship of guns, our disengagement of youth, our fractured families and our mega-sized schools all doubtless contributed to the tragedy at Santana High that took the lives of two youngsters and wounded 13 other people. The 15-year-old suspect, Charles Andrew Williams, was a child of divorce, living with his father in an apartment where police confiscated seven rifles.... (GunPolicy.org)

The gun that 15-year-old Charles Andrew Williams allegedly used in his deadly rampage was a relatively rare German-made Arminius .22-caliber long-barrel revolver that his father says belonged to him and was locked away. Federal authorities said they plan to continue tracing the gun, however, to determine whether father Charles Jeffrey Williams possessed it lawfully and who owned it before him. "We're trying to see if it was purchased by him, if he's the current owner,... (GunPolicy.org)

SANTEE, California — San Diego County sheriff's investigators said today that 15-year-old Charles "Andy" Williams took a .22-caliber long-barrel revolver from his father's locked collection of weapons, brought as many as 40 rounds of ammunition to his high school in his backpack and fired 30 of them during the shooting rampage in which the boy allegedly killed two schoolmates and injured 13 others. So far, after at least two interview sessions with law officers, Andy... (GunPolicy.org)

Now I know what President Bush would have said if I had called him after I was robbed and gunpoint and threatened with death in San Francisco Sunday night. Reacting to Monday morning's shooting at Santana High School near San Diego, which left two dead and 13 others wounded, Bush said that the best way to prevent such crimes is to "teach our children right from wrong." I can only assume he would prescribe the same thing — and perhaps a long jail term — for my young... (GunPolicy.org)

In the aftermath of the April 1999 Columbine massacre, talk of guns, school violence and the need to do something about both reverberated through Congress. The Senate quickly passed a bill requiring background checks for purchasers at gun shows, and the House seemed poised for action as well. Gun control advocates were riding high. The reaction to the latest school shooting, this one in the San Diego suburb of Santee on Monday, was strikingly different. While... (GunPolicy.org)

CRYSLER, Ontario — The boy's essay started out as quite ordinary, everyone agrees. The sentences ran together. Here and there punctuation was out of place. The whole story was only two lines longer than one printed page. In the final paragraph, the boy wrote: "I guess no one knew he had woken up at 5:00 in the morning and had jimmied the lock to one of the back doors. In addition, that in his bag he was carrying 13 packages of C-4 [explosive] and a detonator … He... (GunPolicy.org)

A supporter of a bill designed to make parents more responsible if their children are involved in incidents with guns expressed hope Tuesday that a school shooting in California will help his fight. The bill, introduced at the Roundhouse this session, would increase parental responsibility if a child got access to an unlocked gun and used it to hurt someone. "We know these laws are effective in states where they've been implemented," Bill Jordan, an advocate of the... (GunPolicy.org)

All Gary Crossley wanted to do was to enjoy the quiet life of his Queen Anne's County home without the nonstop staccato of gunfire. His struggle for peace and quiet is pitting him against two of the most powerful politicians in Maryland. House Speaker Casper R. Taylor Jr. and Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller have introduced legislation that would exempt gun clubs from Maryland's noise regulations-a measure that would essentially leave Crossley powerless to curb... (GunPolicy.org)
