GOP bill would loosen restrictions on sales of long guns: A Republican effort to ease controls on purchases of rifles and shotguns from out of state might please hunters, but at least one Democrat sees it as an act of subservience to the National Rifle Association.

Navy vet ID'd as shooter in DC attack that killed 12 … sprayed bullets from the fourth floor down to the cafeteria area in the Naval Sea Systems Command headquarters just after 8 a.m. (with) an AR-15. While stationed in Fort Worth, he was arrested on Sept. 4, 2010, after an upstairs neighbor reported that he had fired shots up into her apartment.Why did this guy have a rifle?
