You may have heard that the Washington Wizards are engulfed in a crisis over Gilbert Arenas, one of the team's star players. His fight with a teammate over a gambling debt led to a display of handguns in the Wizards locker room. Seldom have we seen so many words that do not belong in... (GunPolicy.org)

LAS VEGAS -- Mining. Cattle-ranching. Machine gun rentals. If you're a Berkeley-bred crunchie that combination is the stuff of nightmares. If you're entrepreneur Billy Conn, however, it's a living. And, thanks to a weak dollar and ever-tightening firearms laws, business at the machine gun range is good. Conn will only say that the privately-held Las Vegas Gun Range & Firearms Center is a "multi-million" dollar business. However tough firearms laws, a weak dollar, and... (GunPolicy.org)

In Washington, the story of Gilbert Arenas and his guns is yet another in a long line of sports embarrassments for a town that has a tough time finding winners. But in the rest of the country, the news that the Washington Wizards' star guard displayed his guns in the team locker room -- and the utter lack of seriousness with which Arenas and his teammates handled the incident in the ensuing days -- is being perceived as a morality play about thuggish behavior in the...
