A loaded handgun in a kindergarten class. A revolver with a sawed-off barrel in a middle school. Hit lists in high school. Even boasts that the Columbine massacre was mere child's play. Ever since Charles Andrew Williams allegedly killed two classmates and wounded 13 others Monday at his high school in suburban San Diego, parents and educators have witnessed a rash of school-related threats. The schools in question can be public and private. They can be elementary,... (GunPolicy.org)

The pair of bright orange disks streak through the sky, crisscrossing a few feet from each other before exploding into hundreds of pieces. The score? Two for former state champion skeet shooter Paul Newman, zero for the clay pigeons. "I still get a thrill when you turn one to dust and it just evaporates," says Newman, a homebuilder who held the state title for four years. Newman, along with his assortment of shotguns, can be found most weekends at Albuquerque's... (GunPolicy.org)

SANTEE, California — There isn't yet anything that passes muster as a profile of a schoolhouse killer. This is, in part, good news. There haven't been enough of them, yet, to form a statistically reliable portrait. Maybe there'll never be. But the one thing that is, or ought to be by now, well-known is that there is no place that is immune from a young man with a gun and troubles, and a compulsion to apply one to the other. The places of which it is frequently said,... (GunPolicy.org)

Anthony Galella knows that guns kill and accidents happen. He said if he ever found a gun he would "call the cops and tell them." He wouldn't want any other kid to come across it, he said, so consulting authorities would be the right thing to do. But when Galella, 15, stumbled across a gun at a YMCA in Yonkers, N.Y., last year — placed there, unbeknownst to him, by ABCNEWS as part of a hidden-camera experiment — he found that sounding the alarm and calling for an...

EDMONTON — A potentially deadly school shooting was averted yesterday when police tackled a young man with a loaded shotgun and apparent plans to "settle a score" at the University of Alberta. A former engineering student, who was barred from the university in November, was arrested, and smiled as he was led away from the campus by heavily armed police. "We have information that he was coming here to take care of some people," said Edmonton Police Staff Sergeant Dick... (GunPolicy.org)

After 16 school children were shot and killed in Dunblane, Scotland, five years ago, Great Britain reacted by implementing one of the toughest gun control laws in the world. Now, CBS News Correspondent Richard Roth reports, there's an upshot no one predicted. Police say that since handguns have been outlawed, outlaws have taken up replicas — from realistic-looking toys to expensive scale models. British police estimate that four out of five gun crimes in Great... (GunPolicy.org)

Almost two years ago, after the Columbine shootings, I wrote an op-ed for this newspaper titled "Don't Blame the Parents." I explained that parents often are wrongly blamed when something goes seriously amiss in a child's life. When a kid brings a gun to school and fires it, and people die, the grieving parents of the shooter are subjected to intense scrutiny. What did they do wrong? The belief that the parents of the shooter must have done something wrong serves as... (GunPolicy.org)

What city will it be next week? Monday's news from San Diego seemed simultaneously surreal and yet all too familiar — "15-year-old keeps word; 2 students shot to death." The chilling headline tells us a teenager has fired a gun at a school, and every parent's stomach squeezes into a knot. That could have been my child. That could happen here in Seattle. That can happen anywhere. Nine months have passed since my 11-year-old daughter and I joined 850,000 demonstrators... (GunPolicy.org)
