For more than 25 years, John Denman was able to legally carry a gun to, from and during work, but when he applied for a permit under Michigan's new concealed carry weapon law, the local gun board turned him down. Denman, a Salem Township resident, and three other disgruntled Washtenaw County residents are suing the gun board to have their denials overturned. Gun board members say all four were denied because of "clear and convincing evidence" that issuing a CCW would... (GunPolicy.org)

If Richard Whalen wants to use the new BB gun he got for Christmas, his father or another adult is going to have to tag along. The Alpharetta City Council passed a law Monday night making it illegal for anyone under 18 to carry a BB or paintball gun without the supervision of someone in a "parental role." The council's 4-3 vote came after nearly two hours of debate that took on familiar themes in Alpharetta, where the politically powerful Windward community led the... (GunPolicy.org)

RICHMOND, Virginia — Like many states, Virginia has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars since Sept. 11 putting metal detectors and X-ray machines at its Capitol doors to thwart a deadly terrorist rampage. Visitors now entering the 200-year-old Capitol are asked to let officers inspect anything that might trigger a metal detector — cell phones, pagers, keys and guns. Yes, guns. In Richmond, it's legal for people never convicted of a felony to discretely pack... (GunPolicy.org)

SAN'A, Yemen — The government banned Yemenis on Tuesday from carrying guns on city streets, and urged security officials to do all they can to enforce the prohibition. Guns, ammunition and explosives are sold freely in Yemen, a largely tribal society where weapons are carried openly and people often settle feuds with guns. The problem grew during the 1994 civil war when many arms were smuggled into the country. The government did not say why it issued the ban, but... (GunPolicy.org)

A Senate committee has holstered a proposal that would have allowed state lawmakers to strip administrative funding from the University of Utah over its current gun ban. The bill would have applied to any state entity that enacts rules or policies in conflict with state law. Despite unanimous public testimony in favor of the bill, the State and Local Affairs Committee Tuesday refused to vote on SB147, sponsored by Sen. Michael Waddoups, R-Taylorsville, who has sparred...
