Cuomo of New York approved a broad package of gun-control measures that made New York's tough gun laws even tougher, the Texas attorney general, Greg Abbott, began running Internet advertisements in Manhattan and Albany asking New York gun owners to consider moving to Texas.

Thousands of gun rights supporters gathered at state capitols around the country on Jan. 19 to rally against new laws to regulate firearms proposed by President Barack Obama in the wake of December's school shooting in Connecticut. The crowds included people of all ages, some waving flags and holding signs saying "Don't Tread on Me" and "Stand behind the Second Amendment."

Top Democrats optimistic Congress will pass gun control legislation, with outside Washington help
Fox News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Top Democrats expressed confidence that Congress will pass significant gun-control legislation, with the backing of Washington lawmakers and pressure from Americans across the country. David Plouffe, a senior adviser for President Barack Obama, acknowledged the president's gun-control proposals will need public support to pass in Congress and said the White House will try to "enlist" Americans in the debate through its newly formed, grassroots advocacy group.

Democrats are split over how to shape approach to gun bills
The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
As Congressional Democrats shape their strategy for considering President Barack Obama's proposals to curb gun violence, sharp divisions are forming between lawmakers who believe the best path to success is through narrowly written bills and a meticulous legislative process and those who advocate a more guerrilla approach. Many Democrats and some Senate Republicans, believe the only legislation that has a whisper of a chance of passing would be bills that are tightly focused on more consensus elements like enhancing background checks or limits on magazines, subjected to debate in committee and then brought to a vote after building bipartisan support.

Using children to pass gun laws is grotesque and childish
Forbes    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Carrie Lukas, a Forbes contributor, writes: "Parents are often asked by their children to solve unsolvable problems. When woken by nightmares, my daughter seeks reassurance that bad dreams won't return when she closes her eyes again. I offer a fresh pillow, inviting her to think that somehow it will foster only happy visions. If I cajoled them to, my kids could scratch out some tear-jerking pleas for the President to put an end to nightmares, lost stuffed animals and illnesses of all kinds. Grown-ups — including politicians — may have a duty to offer children reassurance after a trauma, but we cannot pretend that we have the power to wipe bad things out of existence." More

Hundreds attend pro-gun rally at Texas Capitol grounds
The Austin American-Statesman    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
More than 600 people gathered on the Texas Capitol grounds on Jan. 19 for a rally against President Barack Obama's proposals to curb gun violence. "I do hope you will call your politicians," said state Rep. Steve Toth, R-The Woodlands, adding that the crowd should also reach out to their church pastors to get the pro-gun message out. "We don't need more laws." The Austin rally was one of many at state capitols across the country organized by Guns Across America, a group started by Texas airline pilot Eric Reed. The rallying cry was opposition to the proposals Obama made in response to the Newtown, Conn., school shooting in December. More

New York governor looks to clarify gun law after concern about exemption for police
Fox News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's office is working on amendments to clarify the newly passed gun-control law, following complaints that it did not explicitly exempt police officers from a ban on high-capacity magazines. The state law bans magazines over seven rounds — police officers typically use magazines that hold twice as many bullets. Critics of the law claimed the alleged oversight was a product of the haste with which the package was passed through the legislature. More

How might the NRA challenge New York gun law in court?
The Christian Science Monitor    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The National Rifle Association says it will take to court New York's tough new gun bill, signed into law by Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The new law, called New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act or NY SAFE Act, is particularly tough on the high-capacity ammunition magazines used in semiautomatic assault rifles. Residents of the state will not be allowed to use magazines that carry more than seven rounds and will be required to sell, within a year, any magazines that hold eight or more rounds. More

Enough gun laws on books already
The Baltimore Sun    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Larry Orluskie, a Baltimore Sun reader, writes: "Like many of Gov. Martin O'Malley's constituents, I strongly urge him to withdraw any legislation to ban so-called 'assault weapons' and 'high capacity' magazines. He should stop any legislation that creates gun-free zones and not make laws that hurt law-abiding citizens and hinder commerce in this state. Paradoxically, gun control clears a path for violence and makes aggression more likely." More
