Monday’s mass shooting has many Houstonians on edge. Carrying a gun is what makes many folks feel safe, but don’t try that at Pi Pizza in the Heights. They serve alcohol, so the restaurant bans guns. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know that booze and Berettas can be a bad mix. This gun ban angered one potential customer who took to Facebook posting, “Any business that removes my right to defend myself is a business that doesn’t want my money.”

While most of the gun control debate focuses on the debate over banning assault weapons, data from the FBI show such weapons are involved in only a tiny portion of the nation's murders. Although "assault weapon" has no formal definition, most guns that would be thought of as assault weapons are types of rifles. Yet FBI data show that, in 2015, rifles were the weapon used in less than 2 percent of all murders.

Several hours of police testimony and surveillance video from the scene were all a part of Day 2 in a murder trial for Dallas Acoff on Tuesday in Ohio County. The defense claims the East Wheeling shootout was self-defense for the defendant, but prosecutors disagree. They’re trying to establish that Acoff, in fact, was not threatened, and they insinuated he could have left the Legion bar at any time.

The Missouri Legislature this month voted to override Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto of a sweeping gun rights bill, including an expansion in Missouri’s self-defense statute. How the change in the statute will be interpreted by judges and juries is still an open question. But the overall message it sends about criminal justice in Missouri might be more troubling.

This month, I was going to write about pocket pistols, but I got totally distracted looking for a quote I needed. While looking for it, I stumbled into an online-forum discussion that had a couple quotes that caused me to completely change my subject. A fellow forum member, who worked in a gun store, related the tale of a police officer acquaintance of his who was shopping for a shotgun so as to have something to “keep in the garage so he’d have a gun nearby while he was mowing the lawn.” When the forum member asked him why he didn’t just carry a gun while doing yard work, the officer looked at him like he was crazy.

Prominent advocates on both sides of the gun-rights divide have faced off on law and policy in an Indy Bar Association debate. Second Amendment attorney and talk show host Guy Relford concedes Supreme Court rulings open the door to some restrictions on guns, though he questions the Court's legal rationale. But limiting a constitutional right is still a high legal bar, and he argues the proposed restrictions wouldn't accomplish anything. He says a limit on high-capacity magazines was part of the 10-year assault-weapons ban which expired in 2004, and studies found no noticeable difference in crime rates.

The November ballot measure aimed at clamping down on the sale of bullets in California can trace its genesis to one grisly death 43 years ago at a dining room table in Mill Valley. That table is where Gavin Newsom’s grandfather shot himself to death in front of the future lieutenant governor’s mother and aunt. Arthur Menzies had endured the Bataan Death March as a World War II prisoner, and apparently was never able to shed the anguish.

subtle breeze and pristine blue sky set a peaceful scene in the Hill District Thursday morning, so the immediate thought might not be on the dozens of young men killed in the span of only a few blocks. It’s almost always guns. Often stolen, or obtained through a straw purchase, then used against a teenager or young adult. In this neighborhood, in Homewood, Larimer, East Liberty, and across the Allegheny and Monongahela in areas where bursts of gunfire – and stolen weapons – are not rare.
