Of the many events on Monday honoring the memory of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the gathering held by the Rev. Al Sharpton in Harlem was one with a wide audience and a narrow focus: the toll of gun violence, from a parking lot in Tucson to the streets of New York. Senator Charles E. Schumer said that no constitutional amendment was sacrosanct and that "there's nothing wrong in putting reasonable limits on guns." Alluding to the concern over the shooting of... (GunPolicy.org)

Instead of the Keystone State, you could call Pennsylvania the "Keep Your Head Down State." And Delaware? "Definitely Not First." A national report released Sunday knocked Pennsylvania and Delaware as two of just 10 states that failed to report any mental-health records to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). New Jersey didn't do much better: In a state with 8.7 million people, just eight mental-health records were submitted through August... (GunPolicy.org)

RICHMOND - It's one of the most heated debates of our time: Would fewer guns equal fewer killings, or is it just the opposite? In the shadow of the recent shootings in Arizona, the argument is as contentious as ever. Both sides came to the capital Monday to air their starkly different views to lawmakers. The face-off, however, was more subdued than in years past. Each camp staged its own rally and kept largely to its own. The irony of dueling over guns on Martin... (GunPolicy.org)

After the Tucson shootings, one can imagine how potentially provocative it would be for a concealed weapon permit holder to be striding down the street openly carrying a firearm. Picture the reaction of families when someone enters a restaurant or crosses a university campus with weapon at the ready. All that and more would be legal under Senate Criminal Justice Chairman Sen. Greg Evers' Senate Bill 234 that would allow concealed-weapons-licensed gun owners to openly... (GunPolicy.org)

Colin Goddard's life changed forever inside a Norris Hall classroom. Goddard returned to the Virginia Tech building where he was shot four times to recount that fateful day for a camera crew. "It's crazy being back here," Goddard says in the documentary "Living for 32," which follows his life from shooting victim to gun-law reformer. It was his first time back to Norris Hall since it was renovated as the Center for Peace Studies and Violence Prevention. He talks... (GunPolicy.org)

A Massachusetts prosecutor on Tuesday dropped involuntary manslaughter charges against two men in connection with the death of an 8-year-old boy who accidentally shot himself with an Uzi at a 2008 gun show, citing last week's acquittal of a third defendant. Prosecutor William Bennett filed "nolle prosequi" - not prosecuting - motions in Hampden Superior Court in Springfield in the cases of Domenico Spano of New Milford, Conn., and Carl Giuffre of West Hartford,...

Dryden area gunsmith Bruce Montague was released on parole from a Thunder Bay prison, Jan. 11, following a four-month stay. Over six years since his arrest at a Dryden gun show, a costly court challenge of the Canadian Firearms Act and failed appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada, Montague says he's done fighting. "We're done like dinner," he said. "We've gone as far as the Supreme Court and they turned us down. I'm pretty disappointed in our justice system in many... (GunPolicy.org)

On April 22, 2008, almost exactly one year after 32 students and faculty members were slain in the massacre at Virginia Tech, the dealer who had sold one of the weapons used by the gunman delivered a public lecture on the school's campus. His point: that people at Virginia Tech should be allowed to carry concealed weapons on campus. Eric Thompson, owner of the online firearms store that sold a .22-caliber semiautomatic handgun to the shooter, Seung-Hui Cho, did not... (GunPolicy.org)
