WASHINGTON — Senator Jean Carnahan, the Missouri Democrat, pulled out her 20-gauge Browning Citori shotgun the other day and fired off a few rounds as part of a skeet-shoot benefit for a home state research center. In Alaska, Lt. Gov. Fran Ulmer, the Democratic candidate for governor and owner of a permit to carry a concealed weapon, went gun shopping in July with reporters in tow. Ms. Ulmer, who owns eight firearms, mostly rifles, told The Anchorage Daily News that... (GunPolicy.org)

The levels of violence are... (GunPolicy.org)

O'Brien, who represented Easthampton in western Massachusetts while serving in the House and Senate, defended her top rating from the Gun Owners Action League at a debate of the Democratic gubernatorial candidates on Monday. "People who live in rural and suburban communities, they would... (GunPolicy.org)

FALMOUTH — A police officer's right to carry a firearm — and who sanctions that right — is the subject of a legal dispute that has left an officer's career in the balance. Falmouth Police Chief David Cusolito says he is asserting his authority to continue the policy of at least three chiefs before him that requires all officers to have a state-issued license to carry a firearm. But Falmouth patrolmen say they have an intrinsic right to carry a gun by virtue of... (GunPolicy.org)

HARRISBURG, Philadelphia — Three years ago, the National Rifle Association praised then-Philadelphia Mayor Edward Rendell for his "courageous leadership." Now, the organization has turned against him and is trying to defeat the Democrat in his bid for governor. Before the Democratic primary in May, the NRA ran radio ads warning gun owners that a Rendell victory "could mean harsh new restrictions on your rights and freedoms" and urged supporters to vote for his...

It helped the Israeli army establish a fledgling nation, took a starring role in Hollywood action movies, and outraged campaigners against the scourge of firearms on the streets of inner-city America. But Uzi Gal, who has died at 79 in Philadelphia — 48 years after he finished designing the submachine gun that bears his name — was so little enamoured of a life on the world stage that he tried to stop the...
