WASHINGTON — Amid signs that its Washington agenda has hit a wall, a leading gun-control group said yesterday that it would seek to persuade states, including Pennsylvania and New Jersey, to use consumer-protection laws to regulate firearms more tightly. The Center to Prevent Handgun Violence said it would ask attorneys general in 20 states to adopt regulations requiring firearms manufacturers to supply gun locks and other mechanisms for disabling guns, in order to...

The latest tragic events at a suburban San Diego high school no doubt will fuel renewed debate over the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution. The amendment, if you haven't read it lately, states: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." The problem with the recurring debate over the 2nd Amendment is that it never gets past the word "right." The real question is:... (

SANTA FE — A bill that would allow New Mexicans to carry concealed handguns handily passed the House on Tuesday and sped toward the Senate. However, the House version of so-called "concealed carry" legislation — with the Senate having adopted another — would allow local governments to bar residents from carrying concealed firearms within their city or county limits. "New Mexico residents deserve legal means to protect themselves," said the House sponsor, Rep.... (

High atop a volcanic mesa, Fred and Shauna Johnson pound in the stakes marking off a walled-in courtyard. This will be Eagle Spirit Ranch, looking down on a dusty little town called Virgin, Utah, and up to the breath-taking white and vermilion cliffs of Zion National Park. Jay Lee, the mayor of Virgin who dry-farms watermelon nearby, has come to visit. A dog plods over from the Johnsons' mobile home and curls up among the black lava rock as they survey the site of...

DUNBLANE — Even in Dunblane, a gentle Scottish town haunted by the ghosts of slain children, it is impossible to banish the gun. Dunblane's devastated survivors did their best to wash guns from their midst after Thomas Hamilton took an arsenal into their primary school one March morning in 1996 and shot 16 children and a teacher to death. Thousands demanded tougher laws to ensure such a slaughter of innocents could never happen again. They convinced the British... (

LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles County lawmakers, responding to last week's shooting rampage by a teenager at a California high school, have passed a law forcing students caught with guns or making threats to view dead bodies and watch autopsies being performed at the coroner's office. "Young people need to see the results of violent acts," Los Angeles County Supervisor Mike Antonovich said. "Far too many youngsters are desensitized to violence. They need to realize it's... (

WASHINGTON — George W. Bush is adding a new duty to his job description: president-as-family-counselor. No matter what the setting, Bush winds up most of his speeches these days by telling people that one of his most important jobs is to remind them to love their kids. "My job," Bush told a crowd in North Dakota last week, "is to say to the moms and dads of America, 'Your most important job is to love your children with all your heart and all your soul." In... (

The House of Representatives has passed a resolution condemning the school shootings last week in Santee, California. Two students at Santana High School were killed, 13 others wounded. A 15-year-old boy has been charged as an adult, with murder, attempted murder and assault with a firearm. During yesterday's House debate, very few members spoke for stricter gun control laws. They talked mostly about the need for smaller classes and more school safety programs. Susan... (
