Of the 11 students accused of taking a gun to a Charlotte-Mecklenburg school since August, police say about a quarter got the weapon from home. They will probably never know how the other students obtained their firearms, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police Sgt. Todd Garrett said. Since December, when three guns were found in Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools in less than a week, Garrett said police have done all they can to find out how and where the students got them. One... (

DURHAM, North Carolina — North Carolina gun laws have some prosecutors frustrated as firearm charges are dismissed against convicted felons. It isn't illegal in North Carolina for convicted felons to carry rifles or shotguns in their vehicles. Nor is it illegal for them to keep multiple guns in their home, as long as the weapons are not fully automatic. "It's quite disturbing," said Assistant District Attorney John Phillips, a gun prosecutor in Durham. "If Charles... (

Whether admired or reviled, this much can be said of the National Rifle Assn.: The course of the gun control issue in the U.S. turns directly on its fortunes.

The Irish government is to introduce tough new laws to combat spiralling gun violence in the country's cities and towns. It follows a near 10-fold increase in the number of people murdered through violent crime in the Republic in the past 10 years. One of the latest victims was a 65-year-old grandmother who died instantly after being shot in the head in her Dublin house last weekend, apparently the victim of a family feud. Three days later, an English woman on a... (

In a socialist society increasingly suffering from the politics of envy, filing "Hail Mary" lawsuits for outrageous awards is becoming as popular as playing the lottery and voting for a living. The theory seems to be that if something bad happens to me, somebody should pay me for my suffering, even if they had nothing to do with the loss I suffered.
