April 8 is a high noon of sorts for Akron-area businesses. That's the first day Ohioans can apply to carry a concealed weapon, although it will take another 45 days for anyone to get a license to pack heat legally. In the meantime, business owners who want to keep guns out of their offices and shops should start thinking about posting signs. Under the state's new concealed carry law, that's the only way employers can prohibit them. "Every client that I've spoken to has... (GunPolicy.org)

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court said on Monday that it would decide whether the federal law that prohibits felons from possessing firearms or ammunition includes foreign convictions. The justices agreed to decide the issue after U.S. appeals courts issued conflicting rulings on whether the law covers convictions in courts outside of the United States and after the U.S. Justice Department urged that a uniform national rule be established. The case concerned an... (GunPolicy.org)

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court agreed Monday to decide whether people convicted of crime overseas can be barred from owning a gun in the United States. U.S. law forbids felons from owning guns, with a few exceptions for antitrust and trade violations. The government has contended that the law covers felons convicted overseas. Lower federal courts have disagreed over the issue, and the Supreme Court took a case involving a Pennsylvania man to resolve the conflict.... (GunPolicy.org)

Attempting to appeal both to Downstate hunters and Chicago-area gun-control advocates, Gov. Rod Blagojevich will sign a law allowing 18-year-olds to obtain a state firearm owner ID card without parental consent but will veto laws that seek to expand gun rights for retired law enforcement officers and people who use guns in self-defense, aides said Sunday. "It's important to strike a balance between fighting gun violence in urban areas and protecting the rights of... (GunPolicy.org)

For the past year, the future of gun control hung in the balance as Congress debated a bill that would have immunized the gun industry against civil suits. On March 3, the U.S. Senate, thanks in large part to brilliant procedural maneuvering by pro-gun-control senators, defeated this irresponsible bill, but the National Rifle Association is sure to revive the proposal next year. During this window of opportunity, legislators in states like New York must act quickly to... (GunPolicy.org)
