Steve Lee says he never set out to be an internet hit. He just loves guns - and thought he would write a song about it. He says he is as shocked as anyone that his YouTube clip 'I Like Guns' has been viewed more than 1.26 million times in the six weeks it has been online. The paean to guns, produced by Bill Chambers - father of Kasey - features Lee shooting at everything from watermelons to cars, and with everything from muzzleloaders to a fully automatic M60 and a...

SAN FRANCISCO - A 65-year-old San Francisco man shot to death by police after he allegedly came at them with a machete had called his doctor minutes before to say he was going to "try to take them out when they come to take me," police said. Police officials released a tape of Edward Lemarr Smith's call to his physician Monday, two days after an officer shot and killed Smith just outside his home at 87 Maynard St. in the Excelsior neighborhood. Officers were... (GunPolicy.org)

As long as you have the cash, you can snap up a deactivated weapon – because the law currently classes them as metal ornaments. But those with the know-how and the tools can easily reactivate them to fire live ammunition. Guns on display at the shop have included a Russian Kalashnikov AK-47 machine gun, a British-made World War II era Sten machine gun and a German Luger hand gun. The Mail found the fearsome looking collection inside the Simply Gifted shop close to... (GunPolicy.org)

Americans are familiar with the gun lobby's influence in Congress, but many Hoosiers may not know their own state legislators are being pressured to pass two pro-gun bills that would ill-serve Indiana. Both proposals have passed the pro-gun House Natural Resources Committee, which includes Rep. Richard Dodge of Pleasant Lake. Both advance narrow pro-gun interests at the expense of sound public policy and the overall safety interests of Hoosiers. Both should be... (GunPolicy.org)

EASTON - Mayor Sal Panto Jr. may try to seize on the number of lost and stolen handgun reporting laws developing around the state by returning the idea to city council for a second chance. "I'm thinking about it, I can tell you that," Panto said last week. "I'd like to see Easton have it." But the mayor may have only one more vote than he did the first time, leaving him still at least one shy of approval. In November 2008, city council voted 5-2 against requiring... (GunPolicy.org)

The Police Association did not welcome the result of a poll we published recently. It found a clear majority, 65 per cent, of 2296 sampled Herald readers did not want the police to routinely carry firearms. They were content with current practice that uses specially armed squads to deal with incidents involving guns. The association president, Greg O'Connor, said this "nostalgic" view was now unrealistic. He was referring to the long-accepted view that police sidearms... (GunPolicy.org)

BEIRUT, Lebanon - Four Israeli business executives were arrested in Las Vegas, along with 18 Americans, Britons and other nationals, on charges of trying to bribe someone they thought was an African defense minister to obtain a $15 million arms contract. The swoop on Jan. 19 was the culmination of a two-and-a-half-year undercover sting operation by the U.S. Justice Department. It was the largest single investigation under the 1977 U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act,... (GunPolicy.org)
