INT’L – RETAILERS – Threat of increased gun control in New Zealand sparks run on AR-15s, other firearms

The New Zealand government’s vow to pass stiffer gun laws in the wake of the Christchurch mosques massacre has produced a run on gun stores, especially benefiting military-style semi-automatic weapons, before any new bans or restrictions can pass. 

NAT’L – GUN CONTROL – Here is every new gun law in the U.S. since the Parkland shooting

Many of the new laws already in effect added restrictions on owning a firearm. For example, 18 of these laws disqualified more people from owning guns, 11 are so-called “red flag laws.”

DC – Gun Control – What House Democrats can do about guns (VIDEO)

The results of the midterm elections suggest that the movement made headway in suburban districts across the country, but failed in more rural, conservative states. The next Congress may then pass bills regarding assault weapons and background checks in the new Democratic House only to see them stall in the even more Republican Senate. For gun control advocates, that’s progress, but not enough. 

CA – Gun Control – Thousand Oaks shooting: Why didn’t California’s strict gun laws stop it?

The Wednesday night shooting massacre at a Thousand Oaks country music bar was the kind of tragedy that would seem more likely in states such as Nevada or Florida known for permissive gun regulations that allow military-style semiautomatic rifles and high-capacity ammunition magazines. But it happened in California, seen as a model for firearm regulation and the only state given an “A” rating by the Giffords Law Center to…

Nat’l – Opinion – A Blue Ripple, A Red Senate Wall And What It Means For The Firearms Industry

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is going to keep up the blistering pace of confirming judges to the bench and Trump Administration nominees won’t be automatically mired in the morass of politics. That’s especially important when it comes to the Supreme Court. 

Nat’l – Opinion – What mass shootings do to those not shot: Social consequences of mass gun violence

I am a trauma and anxiety researcher and clinician psychiatrist, and I know that the effects of such violence are far-reaching. While the immediate survivors are most affected, the rest of society suffers, too.

Kent State University paid $65,000 in September for security at a gun-rights walk organized by a graduate and others.

CA  – Gun Crime – Democrats renew push for gun control, assault weapons ban (VIDEO)

Just hours after the killings by a lone gunman in a California bar, Democrats began lining up to demand more gun control, an issue that fell off the map during the midterm congressional elections despite the shootings in a Pittsburgh synagogue. “We need to do something about this. And I’m glad that we have a Democratic majority in the House,” said Democratic Party Chairman Tom Perez. 

Nat’l – Opinion – Stricter gun laws did not prevent California shooting

Another mass shooting that cost the lives of a dozen people, including a heroic sheriff’s sergeant, has immediately brought demands for stricter gun control laws, but since the Thousand Oaks outrage happened in California—a state with some of the strictest laws already—just what more does anyone think should be done?

Newly ascendant Democrats are promising congressional action on gun control amid a rash of mass shootings, including a late-night assault at a California bar that killed 12 people.
