The bipartisan goodwill surrounding a bill aimed at managing bioterror gave way Monday when a state senator turned the debate into a referendum on gun rights. The bill allows the governor, in the event of an attack, to declare a "public health emergency" — just as he may do under pre-existing law in the event of enemy attack or natural disasters — and sets out the responsibilities of state agencies. Sen. Phil Gingrey (R-Marietta), who is running for the 11th... (GunPolicy.org)

The assailant,... (GunPolicy.org)

His frontal lobe and his future were destroyed by a man shooting a semiautomatic on the Empire State Building observation deck. "How did this guy... (GunPolicy.org)
