Crime is a constant concern of the American people and for good reason: This is a violent culture where criminals have easy access to firearms. Add to that the fears of terrorism returning to these shores and people have every reason to care about efficient law enforcement. Suppose then that a law enforcement agency could get only limited information from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives about guns used in crimes. Suppose further that while such... (GunPolicy.org)

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa — Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani, a proponent of abortion rights, said Wednesday he would not use a judicial nominee's stand on the issue or the landmark Supreme Court decision as a litmus test. On a campaign swing through conservative western Iowa, the former New York mayor pledged to appoint judges who would strictly interpret the Constitution on gun rights and other issues. Abortion never came up in his address to about 100... (GunPolicy.org)

Shot and killed in your own home. With your handguns. Guns that you had stowed in a closet and between mattresses of your bed because you always had guns, grew up in a family of gun owners. When the National Rifle Association cites law-abiding citizens who own guns, they speak of people like you: a stockbroker, a husband, a father. Your friends say you were the kind of guy who helped anyone in need. Then someone in deep need — of a priest, a shrink, a conscience... (GunPolicy.org)

There is new talk of tracking cars for terrorism. There is international praise for tracking terrorists with cameras. This would logically lead to a tracking program for the most violent weapon in the United States. Not a chance. The United States is as illogical as ever on guns. The Globe reported this week that hundreds of thousands of stolen cars in the United States go untracked because few states share motor vehicle information. Many are sold overseas. Dozens end...

For the past 31 years, criminals and thugs in Washington, D.C., seem to have had little problem acquiring inexpensive firearms — the city has one of the worst records in the nation for violent crime. But for law-abiding citizens, the situation has been very different. The District's 31-year-old handgun law bars most residents from owning handguns and requires all legally owned firearms to be kept unloaded and either disassembled or under trigger lock, rendering them...

The equation is simple: Get caught with a loaded illegal gun, go to jail for at least 3½ years. But even though the tough new law went into effect last year, lots of New Yorkers still don't get the message, cops and prosecutors say. That could change this week. A new ad campaign announced yesterday will paper the city with stark black-and-white warnings that packing an illegal weapon carries a big risk. "We're going to make sure all New Yorkers understand this loud... (GunPolicy.org)
