Jennifer Shilling might wish she still was a child, trapped inside an episode of Leave it to Beaver. Life would be much easier. The 1950s television series most closely portrays the family life of her childhood, which was exceedingly innocent, Shilling says. Her otherwise stay-at-home mom became coach of her first-grade soccer team when no one else was available. Her father, once press secretary for former U.S. Sen. George McGovern, also had been a Methodist deacon.... (GunPolicy.org)

LAKOTA, North Dakota — A Northwest Airlines pilot was killed in a shootout with sheriff's deputies who had gone to the man's home after receiving a 911 call. Rick Kaseman, 52, came out of the house carrying a gun, became belligerent and fired a shot, Nelson County Sheriff Dale Quam said. We just told him we were there to see how he was doing, and he got upset and came with a gun in his hand, and he wouldn't put it down, Quam said. He raised the gun, pointed it at... (GunPolicy.org)

Israelis are rushing to buy weapons in the wake of the sudden surge in Palestinian attacks on Israeli cities and the government's decision last week to further loosen the country's already lax gun laws. There are 340,000 legal gun owners in a population of 6.3 million but Vered Schnittman, the manager of a gun shop in the central town of Petah Tikva, says her custom has now risen 10-fold, to 60 shoppers a day. Everybody wants a pistol. Nobody wants to be afraid any... (GunPolicy.org)

Gun instructors and people with permits to carry concealed deadly weapons fell under scrutiny Thursday when six eastern Kentucky men were indicted on federal charges for alleged roles in improperly certifying applicants for concealed...

A total of 57 homemade guns were surrendered to police in a peace ceremony initiated by village leaders and police in Moreguina, in the Central Province, on Saturday. The guns were manufactured by villagers when fighting broke out between the Apaeva and Segiri clans last year. The long standing feud, which began 12 months ago, had prompted the youth to build up on guns so they could wage wars against their enemies. The peace ceremony witnessed by about 200 people...
