Among other things in school-registration packets, a Tucson-area school district has a pledge for parents to sign, asking for them to agree to be responsible gun owners.

Joe Colter didn't receive an owner's manual when he bought his 9mm handgun. If he had, he might have read the part that explains how when you rack the slide to eject a bullet, another bullet takes its place. And he might have prevented the accidental death of a friend.

Police say Colter, a 20-year-old Glendale resident, admitted he and a friend were joking around Wednesday night when he unintentionally shot and killed the friend, who is not named in court documents.

Arizona is still one of a handful of states where more people die from being shot than die in motor-vehicle accidents.

Arizona was one of only 10 states with more deaths-by-gun than deaths-by-car in 2009, and is only one of 12 states in 2010, now the most recent data available. As you can imagine, a pro-gun-control group has issued this report.

Senator Jeff Flake
A Valley mom whose son was killed last year in the movie-theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado, slams Senator Jeff Flake in an advertisement that's about to hit Phoenix airwaves, thanks to Flake's vote against a proposal for more background checks on gun purchases.

Caren Teves recently made news after showing that Flake had sent her a handwritten note that "strengthening background checks is something we agree on" -- before he voted against an amendment to strengthen background checks.

Phoenix police and Mayor Greg Stanton have announced that another $100,000 from an anonymous donor will keep the gun-buyback program going.

The funds for the program ran dry in the middle of the second of three scheduled dates for the buyback, which started with an initial $100,000 donation. An additional 72 guns were given to police in exchange for nothing after the grocery-store gift cards ran dry on Saturday.
