With the Tucson shootings still in the news, there's a good chance President Obama will discuss gun control in his speech. How he does it could mean progress or stalemate on the issue. Over the last few weeks, gun-control advocates have focused on banning the type of high-capacity clips that the police say was used by the man accused in the Tucson shootings, Jared Loughner. But even timely efforts to ban particular kinds of weapons face long odds politically, and... (GunPolicy.org)

New York Times, Editorial

It is widely believed in Washington that there is no chance the gun lobby and the new Republican majority in the House would ever permit passage of the modest ideas for tightening America's absurdly lax gun laws that have surfaced since the massacre in Tucson. That may be true, but it is no reason for supporters of reasonable gun regulation not to put up a fight. Nor is it an excuse for the lack of principled presidential leadership on this issue. We are still waiting... (GunPolicy.org)

The number of guns with high-capacity magazines seized by Virginia police dropped during a decade-long federal prohibition on assault weapons, but the rate has rebounded sharply since the ban was lifted in late 2004, according to a Washington Post analysis. More than 15,000 guns equipped with high-capacity magazines - defined under the lapsed federal law as holding 11 or more bullets - have been seized by Virginia police in a wide range of investigations since 1993,...

WASHINGTON — Three days before the mass shooting in Tucson reignited the gun-control debate, the White House renominated a Chicago law enforcement official whose actions have riled the gun rights movement to head the country's firearms enforcement agency. Andrew Traver — who would head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives — leads the agency's Chicago office, where he has been tagged an anti-gun zealot by some gun rights advocates who oppose his...

The atrocity in Tucson points up the dire need for gun control in this country. Records indicate that at least 22 of these mass murders have been committed in the past 11 years. This averages out to two to three cases per year of multiple innocents slaughtered. This happens, to this extent, nowhere else on the globe. Other parts of the world wonder what is wrong with this nation. In the latest massacre, particularly wrenching was the slaying of a 9-year-old child, a... (GunPolicy.org)

NEW YORK — New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg joined gun violence victims Monday calling on President Barack Obama to urge tighter controls on firearms during his State of the Union address. The mayor, a prominent voice in the national debate over guns, said Obama's speech on Tuesday is a chance to act in the aftermath of this month's wounding of congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and killing of six others in Arizona. "We believe it is an opportunity for our president... (GunPolicy.org)

TOMBSTONE, Arizona — A billboard just outside this Old West town promises "Gunfights Daily!" and tourists line up each afternoon to watch costumed cowboys and lawmen reenact the bloody gunfight at the OK Corral with blazing six-shooters. But as with much of the Wild West, myth has replaced history. The 1881 shootout took place in a narrow alley, not at the corral. Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday weren't seen as heroic until later; they were initially charged with... (GunPolicy.org)
