Senior police officers and Whitehall bureaucrats have "betrayed" the victims of Dunblane with their failure to set up a national firearms register almost a decade after the tragedy, angry peers have claimed. Campaigners and members of the House of Lords spoke out after it emerged the long-running project to get a grip on the huge number of firearms at large in Britain had been delayed again because of crippling "technical problems". The admission from government... (GunPolicy.org)

MONTGOMERY — Black lawmakers say they will filibuster a bill they fear would leave people who shoot burglars free of responsibility if they make a deadly mistake. "I think it's an awful idea," Rep. James Buskey, D-Mobile, said Thursday. "The present law is adequate; we don't need this overkill. It's simply a horrible idea." The bill, sponsored by Rep. Albert Hall, D-Gurley, is scheduled for a vote Tuesday prior to a bill that would extend the state's hate crimes... (GunPolicy.org)

HELENA, Montana — Hundreds of people barred from having guns because they are felons on parole or probation are still able to get hunting licenses in Montana with no questions asked, an Associated Press investigation found. Montana may not be alone. While nearly all states ban felons from possessing guns, only a handful — including Rhode Island and Maine — keep them from receiving hunting permits, and just a few others — such as Illinois and Massachusetts —...
