BANGALORE — Three high profile shootout cases in just six months is yet another reminder that the city is embracing the gun culture. Most of these shootouts involved old rivalry, financial dealings and property disputes and most victims were well-to-do people. While some cases still remain unsolved, the city police seem complacent about the cases, which they dismiss as 'stray'. The most recent shootout took place in the East Division. On Tuesday night, a... (GunPolicy.org)

MADISON COUNTY, Indiana — Kelsey Beatty, 18, and Kristen Waechter, 16, said they were only trying to get their bearings when they pulled into a Madison County driveway on Saturday night. Moments later, they said, a man shot their car twice with a shotgun, shattering two passenger-side windows and slightly injuring Beatty. Police arrested Bobby Eden, 59, on suspicion he fired a 12-gauge shotgun at the car. "What you think won't happen, well, it can," Beatty... (GunPolicy.org)

There is an epidemic of handgun violence in Boston's poorest neighborhoods, and the US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is investigating me? Consider this my confession. I plead guilty to offending the loony gun lobby. In the likely event you missed this alleged story, here are the facts. You be the judge. Twenty months ago, a lifetime in columnist time, I wrote in this space about going to a gun show in New Hampshire. The idea was to see how easy... (GunPolicy.org)

Lax gun laws and enforcement in the US only feed the 'iron river' of weapons across the border. It's not only poverty propelling Mexicans into the US. Rising gun violence by drug gangs, and lately a military surge against them, have driven many to cross the border. And where do these drug cartels get their arsenal of weapons? El Norte, of course. Lax gun laws and lax enforcement in the United States have made it easy for Mexican gunrunners to buy and transport... (GunPolicy.org)

PHOENIX — A young man is shopping at the Crossroads of the West Gun Show here, and there's plenty to choose from. The cavernous hall is packed with tables loaded with long guns and pistols, some barrels etched with names like El Capitán (The Captain) and El Supremo (The Best). Eventually he makes a cellphone call, and a young woman soon joins him. At a table he'd visited earlier, he points to several semiautomatic rifles and walks away. She approaches the vendor,...

With Mother's Day approaching, Shaun Kranish needed a gift, so he strapped on his unloaded semiautomatic 9 mm pistol and left his Rockford home to do some shopping. During his May 2006 trip to CherryVale Mall in Cherry Valley, Kranish put the 15-round magazine into a separate pouch on the holster, where he could easily reach it if necessary. Kranish, 21, picked up some tea for his mother, ate pizza at the food court, then noticed two security guards warily following... (GunPolicy.org)

SALEM — Oregon's child welfare agency did not anticipate the firestorm it would create when it issued new rules regulating guns in state-certified foster homes. Now the agency is backtracking. The National Rifle Association is on alert. And the Oregon Legislature is likely to get involved in the politically volatile matter of balancing an individual's right to have a gun vs. the state's need to protect its most vulnerable children. For years, the state Department... (GunPolicy.org)

Harmonizing laws across East Africa and the Great Lakes region will enable governments to better fight the spread of small arms and light weapons, a regional workshop resolved on Friday. In a communiqué issued in Nairobi, the Regional Center on Small Arms (RECSA) said the harmonization of laws would stem what it termed as "astronomical proliferation" of light weapons such as assault riffles and pistols in the region. At the opening of the RECSA workshop on... (GunPolicy.org)
