HARROLD, Texas — A tiny Texas school district may be the first in the nation to allow teachers and staff to pack guns for protection when classes begin later this month, a newspaper reported. Trustees at the Harrold Independent School District approved a district policy change last October so employees can carry concealed firearms to deter and protect against school shootings, provided the gun-toting teachers follow certain requirements. In order for teachers and... (GunPolicy.org)

It was surprising but not necessarily a surprise when Mother Jones magazine recently uncovered the true identity of a woman, Mary Lou Sapone, who spent the better part of 10 years as a paid spy inside the anti-gun violence movement. It wasn't a surprise to me that the National Rifle Association would do such a thing, because during my two years working for Jim and Sarah Brady, and then a year as a board member of what is now Maryland Ceasefire, I saw the gun lobby's...

SEARCY — Neighbors of the man who gunned down state Democratic Party chairman Bill Gwatney described him Thursday as a quiet, friendly sort who shared with them vegetables from his backyard garden. But inside the home of killer Timothy Dale Johnson, police found a cache of weapons, a note with his victim's name and a phone number on it, and a will, along with two sets of keys with the "Gwatney" car dealership emblem on them. Lt. Terry Hastings, spokesman for the... (GunPolicy.org)

On an overcast Wednesday afternoon last December, a skinny white teenager shuffled into the Westroads Mall in Omaha, Nebraska, with an assault rifle hidden under his black hoodie. A cheery holiday atmosphere filled the aisles. Christmas trees twinkled, holiday music played softly. Nobody paid attention to the slouching teen as he got on the elevator in the Von Maur department store and rode it to Level 3. He came out with his gun raised: an effeminate-looking, almost...

[Continued from Part 1] A month later, Debora Maruca opened her front door one dewy morning and found Rob curled up asleep on her lawn, homeless and broke. Maruca was the mother of one of Rob's high school buddies, Will — another working-class kid who was struggling to find a place for himself — and the two friends had spent the night partying before Rob crashed on the grass. A few months earlier, Rob had stormed out of his dad's house without a plan or place to... (GunPolicy.org)

LOS ANGELES — Jerry Lewis said a gun found in his carry-on and confiscated by Las Vegas police at the airport last month was a gift from an engraver following Lewis' annual telethon for the Muscular Dystrophy Association — despite an earlier claim by his manager that the weapon was a prop. "Oh, I had a gun in my carrying case, which was given to me by a marvelous, marvelous engraver," Lewis told "Entertainment Tonight." "Last year, at the telethon of '07, he... (GunPolicy.org)

LOS ANGELES — The rising tide of guns flowing into Mexico from the United States, which is fueling some of the worst drug violence in Mexico in years, can be stopped only by cracking down on smugglers the way federal authorities hobbled the Mafia, the secretary of homeland security, Michael Chertoff, said Thursday. Mr. Chertoff gave that assessment in an interview as he attended a conference here of governors from United States and Mexican border states that ended... (GunPolicy.org)

Walt Disney World decided today to narrow its employee gun ban to the actual Disney World property only — and with that move the theme park giant got the blessing of Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum for the controversial policy. Disney had riled the National Rifle Association, gun advocates and many Florida lawmakers earlier this summer when it declared that it had a special exemption within a new state law, and could therefore tell employees with concealed...

NEWARK — On Thursday morning, two young men were in their bedrooms, safe and separated by only a ceiling. In the apartment upstairs, Bukhari Washington, 15, had just gone to sleep. At work at the local recreation center the previous day, he and four friends had practiced lip-synching New Edition's "Candy Girl" for a coming talent show. After work, he and his best friend, Daquan Cuttino, shot hoops and went to see the latest Batman movie. Bukhari had stayed up all... (GunPolicy.org)
