The Tucson massacre that wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killed six others did not stop Arizona gun dealers from selling high-powered semiautomatics last week to buyers who said they couldn't pass background checks. The sales were captured on undercover video by private detectives working for Mayor Bloomberg's crusade against illegal guns. The detectives went to the Crossroads of the West gun show in Phoenix on Jan.23 to expose the deadly loopholes in America's gun... (GunPolicy.org)

As Leonard Embody walked down Belle Meade Boulevard in January 2010, black powder revolver in his hand, a concerned passer-by called police. "White male, he looks like a doctor; I mean, he's just a normal-looking guy," the caller told Belle Meade police. "And I'm all for the right to bear arms, but that seems a little odd." He had already drawn attention a month earlier by walking around Radnor Lake State Natural area with an AK-47-like pistol he was carrying. Embody... (GunPolicy.org)

Last year, the Bloomington Police Department received 541 requests for permission to buy handguns. Of that total, 37 were denied following local background checks required by Minnesota law. According to officials, those rejections were due to chemical dependency or mental illness issues. Had Bloomington authorities relied solely on instant federal background checks, every one of those 37 permit-seekers would have been cleared on the spot to buy a gun. Despite that... (GunPolicy.org)

The shadowy world of Britain's arms dealers has been thrust into the spotlight after the directors of two companies based in York and Kent were charged with conspiring to illegally export to the US hundreds of thousands of rounds of ammunition for AK-47 assault rifles in breach of an American embargo. Court documents filed in the US claim that British businessman Gary Hyde and his associate Karl Kleber fraudulently imported more than 5,000 Chinese-produced AK-47 drum... (GunPolicy.org)

Americans are infatuated with guns. And when you're infatuated, you sometimes can't think straight. Maybe that's why, three weeks after the Tucson shootings that shook the nation, we're still no closer to banning oversize magazines like the 33-bullet model allegedly used there. Maybe it will help clarify issues if we imagine an alternate universe — one in which Americans exhibit their toughness not with assault weapons but with assault vehicles, a world in which our...

For all the outrage over the Tucson massacre, everyone knows that sentiment will not translate into common sense gun control laws. Even President Obama, for most of his career a supporter of restrictions on firearms possession, has failed on two occasions - his Tucson and State of the Union speeches - to mention one of the most obvious reforms, the banning of semiautomatic weapons like Jared Lee Loughner's Glock and the high-capacity clip he used. Obama has completely... (GunPolicy.org)

It's 8 on Saturday night in Reno, and 2,500 of the most avid members of Safari Club International — the sort of hunters who target lions instead of, say, ducks — are packed into the Tuscany Ballroom at the Peppermill Hotel and Casino, poking at their Chocolate Hazelnut Bombe with Frangelico Cream. Some are dressed in tuxedos; others are sporting ankle-length hides and Flintstone-style fang necklaces. In the world's largest and most active big-game hunting... (GunPolicy.org)
