Chicago Sun-Times

A federal judge has ruled that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms must hand over database information the city wants to use in its lawsuit against gun manufacturers, distributors and dealers. The city says the data will support its theory that a small number of people and companies are responsible for most guns involved in serious crimes. The ruling, released Thursday, should allow the city access to national data to supplement the local and state data it has.... (

Morning Call (Pennsylvania)

When ABC News put a camera at the Boys and Girls Club of Allentown to see how teens would react to finding planted guns, club Executive Director David R. Ross figured one or two of the youths would walk off with the weapons. Ross was pleased to see that none of the youths-about 26 boys and girls who ranged in age from 13 to 17 — took the inoperable handguns. And everyone reported finding the guns that were left among some free weights and in a locker. But Ross was... (

The New South Wales Government is being urged to use a review of the state's Firearm Act, which is due to be tabled shortly, to change laws regarding handguns. The Coalition for Gun Control says the Act is failing to ensure public safety, citing five handgun shootings in public places in Sydney in the past couple of weeks. State convener Samanatha Lee says semi-automatic handguns should be put in the same category as semi-automatic rifles or shotguns. "Semi-automatic... (

New Zealand lawmakers are as gun-shy as their United States counterparts when faced with the organised might of firearms fans. The Government's arms control policy is shot full of holes after a parliamentary committee found itself the target of 6500 submissions from gun owners and supporters. Only 43 submissions came from firearms control campaigners, including a coalition of groups such as the Mental Health Foundation. Blown out of the water, at least for now, is a... (

Oregonian (Portland)

In Portland, guns that are used in crimes surface on the street about five years after their initial, retail purchase. Most crime guns recovered by police are handguns that were sold in Oregon and changed hands more than once. The findings are part of a Crime Gun Trace Report compiled for the first time by the Portland Police Bureau's Youth Gun Anti-Violence Task Force and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. Mayor Vera Katz set up the gun task force in... (
