That number is almost 300,000 more checks than those recorded in May of 2015, which was then the highest level of background checks ever recorded.

Flanagan declined to answer questions from the I-Team about his position on the bill.

A viral video from last summer is currently the subject of what could turn out to be an important legal battle: Is it OK to strap a gun (or a flamethrower) to a drone? And if it’s not, does the Federal Aviation Administration have the legal authority to do anything about it? Drone pilots around the country—even those who don’t have any interest aerial weaponry—find themselves in the odd position of having to root for a Connecticut teenager and his homemade, weapon-mounted drones.

Gun serial numbers typically flash from holsters on hips, but Jessica Mindich would rather they flash from arms and dress shirts. A philanthropic jewelry maker residing in Connecticut, Mindich, 45, created the Caliber Collection to turn illegal and unwanted guns into something that can do no harm: jewelry. Mindich will use weapons gathered from this Saturday’s Cash for Caliber buy-back program at the Mathis Community Center in Detroit for her next set of bracelets and cuff links. During the program from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., anyone can turn in an unloaded gun — no questions asked — and receive a $50 Visa gift card in exchange.

Given the frequency with which gun deaths occur in the United States, “Why did this happen?” and “Who could do something like this?” are questions the country faces with grim regularity.

A 15-year-old boy who fatally shot himself in the chest Friday was apparently trying to take a selfie when the gun accidentally discharged, police said Tuesday. The photograph hasn’t been found — police will be asking a lab to access the boy’s cellphone — but that is the Overland police investigators’ leading theory in the death of DaMontez Jones. The teen died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his right upper chest, and the shooting has been ruled an accident, police said.

Four Ways Hillary Clinton Will Work to End Gun Ownership as President

On Sunday, Hillary Clinton just couldn’t bring herself to say on ABC’s “This Week” that Americans have an individual right to own guns. But it didn’t stop her from denying Donald Trump’s claim that she wants to abolish the Second Amendment. Clinton accused Trump of making “outright fabrications, accusing me of something that is absolutely untrue.” From changing the Supreme Court to make it possible to again ban guns in the United States to making it more costly to own guns, I predict that a President Hillary Clinton will do four things to either ban guns or at least reduce gun ownership, especially for poor people.

WA: Does ShotSpotter Reduce Crime? Police Are Wondering the Same Thing

With gunfire continuing to fly in the city, Mayor Ed Murray last week announced a plan to deploy acoustic gunshot detection technology in Seattle. Best known by the trade name ShotSpotter, the technology has been used by scores of cities to address gun violence, which is often under-reported in high-crime areas. The audio sensors pick up the sound of gunshots then triangulate where they came from, allowing police to respond more quickly to crime scenes. A one-year pilot project using ShotSpotter or similar technology by another company in Seattle would be bankrolled by a grant from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives to the tune of between $500,000 and $1 million, depending on bids.

The backpack of the near future will have everything modern students need: device-charging ports, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi—and bulletproofing. Doug Monahan was developing a high-tech backpack this past December that he envisioned as “a communications hub” when he heard about the shooting in San Bernardino, California, where 14 people were killed at a County Department of Public Health holiday party. He decided to build an extra pocket and fill it with Kevlar, the synthetic fiber used in standard bulletproof vests.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Gun control? It's the best thing you can do for crooks and gangsters. I want you to have nothing. If I'm a bad guy, I'm always gonna have a gun. Safety locks? You will pull the trigger with a lock on, and I'll pull the trigger. We'll see who wins. — Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, whose testimony convicted John Gotti.
