WASHINGTON — President George W. Bush does not support the push for firearms "fingerprinting" that has grown from the unsolved Washington-area sniper shootings, because he is not sure of its accuracy, a spokesman said Tuesday. Besides, added White House press secretary Ari Fleischer, when it comes to new gun controls generally, "how many laws can we really have to stop crime, if people are determined in their heart to violate them no matter how many there are or what...

CHIERI, Italy — In the latest killings involving families or children to shock Italy, a man went on a rampage Tuesday, shooting dead seven people with three guns before killing himself.

Riding in a patrol car on Isleta Boulevard Southwest, Albuquerque Public Schools police Sgt. Dave West can easily point to a major reason crime statistics are falling in the state's biggest school district. A decade ago, the schools were patrolled by an affiliation of security guards, he says; now, they have a genuine police force. West uses a radio to tell a dispatcher that he's heading to Harrison Middle School, a common law enforcement practice the district didn't... (GunPolicy.org)

WASHINGTON — President Bush is receiving daily briefings on a Washington-area sniper as part of his national security review every morning, but he has not changed his mind on gun control laws nor does he support firearm "fingerprinting." White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said Tuesday that "fingerprinting," a process in which ballistics samples from individual firearms would be put in a federal database to match a gun owner with a gun, is unreliable and...

Matt Beauchamp is just one of many gun owners who didn't appreciate my column last week about "gun nuts" at the Illinois State Rifle Association being off their medication when they produced their latest newsletter. The newsletter, you may recall, raised suspicions that the Maryland sniper killings are part of an anti-gun conspiracy and also made fun of an annual gun-control rally held here by taking potshots at the young gunshot victims the rally seeks to...

The frustrating search for a serial sniper in the Washington region has renewed calls for a national ballistic fingerprint system that supporters say could quickly link bullets found at shooting scenes to a suspect. Such a system would appear to offer a quick fix in cases such as the mysterious shooter who in the past two weeks has killed eight people and wounded two, apparently leaving behind little evidence except for scattered bullet fragments. But some weapons... (GunPolicy.org)

Were it not for the unique fingerprint of microscopic scratches that guns imprint on each bullet fired, authorities in the Washington area searching for the sniper still might not know if they were dealing with a lone madman, a team of armed attackers or an astounding string of coincidences. The ballistics information is among the few solid clues police have at the moment, and it is impossible to watch authorities struggle to find the killer without wishing they had... (GunPolicy.org)

A retired Edmonton police sergeant who was shot last week by robbers will ask the Canadian Firearms Centre for the right to carry a concealed weapon when he's working in his gun shop. Phil Harnois, 50, thinks if he had been carrying a gun Thursday evening when two men burst into his store, things would have turned out differently. Instead, Harnois is recovering in University of Alberta Hospital following two operations to knit together the bone in his left... (GunPolicy.org)

Britain's murder rate has risen to its highest level since records began 100 years ago, undermining claims by ministers that they have got violent crime under control. The number of murders notified to police in the first eight months of this year has risen by as much as 22% in some of Britain's biggest cities, which account for the majority of homicides. This builds on a 4% rise in the murder rate in the year to March and is 20% higher than the total for 1997, the... (GunPolicy.org)

Four years ago in Laredo, Tex., firearms dealer Thomas Lamar Bean decided that a night out in Mexico would be the perfect way to cap off a day at a gun show. But by the time it was over, he had landed in jail and his livelihood had been destroyed. When Bean reached the border that evening, Mexican authorities discovered 200 bullets in his car and charged him with smuggling ammunition. Sentenced without a trial to five years in a Mexican prison, Bean served four months... (GunPolicy.org)

KAMPALA — He returned home, asked his wife whether she had eaten, cocked his rifle and deposited it on the table before walking out. A few moments later he returned, picked up the firearm and told her he was going on a mission. The next thing she heard was fierce gunfire. It was around 11:00pm that residents of Ntinda Road Police barracks realised that what seemed to be an invasion of the barracks was the callous murder of three Police officers and two civilians...

WASHINGTON — A year after the Sept. 11 terror attacks, most airline passengers seem to have caught on that guns, knives and boxcutters should be left at home, yet thousands of these weapons are still being intercepted, federal officials said Tuesday. Passenger screeners seized 62,000 knives last month, down 42 percent from the 107,000 found in August, a previous low since the Transportation Security Administration began keeping numbers in February. And while 59... (GunPolicy.org)
