Rick Scott signed last week that restricts physicians' ability to ask patients about guns in their homes. The new law requires that doctors, emergency medical personnel and other health-care providers refrain from asking about gun ownership unless they "in good faith [believe] that this information is relevant to the patient's medical care or...

WATERLOO, Iowa - Drivers can get more bang for their buck by turning in unwanted firearms during a local gas station's Gas For Guns event Saturday. Jim Lind, who operates Jim Lind Shell on Ridgeway Ave., got the idea after reading about a similar promotion in a trade magazine. "I thought it was a good thing to do for our community, and everybody needs gas," Lind said. Here's how it works: Starting at 10 a.m. residents bring their weapons to the parking lot south of...

Capt. William Hart says the move follows two police shootings last year where the suspect was seen with what turned... (GunPolicy.org)
