RICHMOND, Virgini — A legislative panel on Wednesday rejected a proposal to require background checks of buyers at gun shows, then sent the bill — supported by families of the victims of the Virginia Tech massacre — on for further study. The referral likely kills the proposal for this year's General Assembly session after a House committee rejected similar legislation last week.

RICHMOND, Virginia — A bill that would have restricted certain gun sales in Virginia and that had received passionate support from survivors of the Virginia Tech massacre was defeated by a Senate committee Wednesday, ending the major gun control effort of this year's General Assembly session.

We refer to the amicus brief that Solicitor General Paul Clement filed Friday in support of the plaintiffs in District of Columbia v. Heller — the D.C. gun-ban challenge, widely expected to be the court's most significant gun-rights case in 60 years when a decision is reached. The brief sides with the D.C. plaintiffs seeking to exercise their Second... (GunPolicy.org)

The spiralling problem with gun culture was highlighted by figures that show 28 firearms crimes are committed in England and Wales every day. Home Office figures showed gun crimes rose by four per cent last year, the largest increase for three years.

Police chiefs said the figures were concerning, while Tories... (GunPolicy.org)
