WASHINGTON — In some Missouri political circles, the name Carnahan is linked strongly with gun control. But there was Sen. Jean Carnahan on Friday, loading her 20-gauge Browning Citori shotgun and trying to blast a few clay pigeons out of the sky. The occasion was the annual skeet shoot and fish fry on a farm in Braggadocio in Missouri's Bootheel. It wasn't supposed to be a campaign event, just a shoulder-thumping good time. But in an election year, and in the very... (GunPolicy.org)

NDROQ, Albania — It was an offer that Drita Nuri and some of her fellow villagers couldn't refuse: Turn in their illegal weapons in exchange for a better water supply. And it worked, after a fashion. Villagers were still handing in guns, ammunition and explosives well after an Aug. 4 deadline expired. Their reward: amnesty, plus $50,000 worth of new pipes and pumps to improve the leaky water supply network. "People were surprised that handing over the weapons could... (GunPolicy.org)

With summer waning, Northwestern Ontario hunters are starting to think about unlocking the gun cabinet and oiling up the long arms. But this fall will mark the last season that Canadians can legally hunt with unregistered firearms. Under Bill C-68 — the controversial Firearms Act — the Canadian government will consider all gun owners who do not register their firearms by the end of this year to be criminals.
