Chicago's gun trace report overlooks commonsense steps

The Gun Trace Report released publicly Sunday by the city of Chicago contains some important kernels of truth, and those kernels could lead to effective steps to reduce violent crime in Chicago. Sadly, the report’s misguided solutions will, with a few exceptions, do nothing to end the mayhem.

New Bill Seeks to Heavily Regulate Bump-Fire Stocks, Other Devices--NRA Opposed

A pair of Democrats and Republicans introduced a new bill on Tuesday that would subject bump-fire stocks and other devices to the same regulations as machine guns and other highly regulated firearms. The bill, named the Closing the Bump-Stock Loophole Act, would add "a reciprocating stock, or any other device which is designed to accelerate substantially the rate of fire of a semiautomatic weapon" to the purview of the National Firearms Act, which currently regulates machine guns, short-barreled rifles or shotguns, silencers, and other firearms.  The bill is different from a previous bump-fire stock bill introduced a few weeks ago by 10 Republicans and 10 Democrats which would make it outright illegal to "manufacture, possess, or transfer any part or combination of parts that is designed and functions to increase the rate of fire of a semiautomatic rifle." Just as with that bill, though, the National Rifle Association has come out in opposition. The gun-rights group's lobbying arm said it sees the same flaw in both bills: overly broad language. "The NRA opposes the overly broad legislation being offered by congressman Fitzpatrick, which is not limited to bumpstocks and includes many commonly owned firearm accessories," Jennifer Baker, a spokesperson for the NRA's Institute for Legislative Action, told the Washington Free Beacon.

Focus on solutions, not anti-gun agenda

Iowa: Democratic gubernatorial, congressional candidates take part in Clarinda forum

Ryan is a Des Moines native who majored in political science at Drake University, and also served in the U.S. Navy. Ryan says that one of the biggest issues she’s focusing on in the election is sensible gun reform.“I became really active with Moms Demand Action after Sandy Hook,” Ryan said. “I’d like for my 8-year-old and 10-year-old not to die in gun violence. I don’t think it’s too much to ask to have gun reform. There should be background checks for everyone. There should be sensible things put into place that don’t make it so easy for people who don’t have the right frame of mind to get access to guns.”
