Gun News and Views From Elsewhere

  1. A bill allowing licensed gun owners to bring weapons to church services held in K-12 school buildings passed the North Carolina House on Monday. The bill’s sponsor, Republican Representative Rena Turner, said a church in her district requested the legislation in response to concerns that their overseas mission trips made them vulnerable to terrorist attacks. The bill now heads to the state Senate.

  2. An 18-year-old Maryland student will face charges after police uncovered her plan to carry out a mass shooting at her high school. The woman was arrested last Thursday after her father notified school officials that his daughter was a threat. Police searched her home and recovered a shotgun, bomb-making materials, and a diary detailing a plot to attack the school. She was admitted to a local hospital for mental evaluation.

  3. A man riding a public bus on the Las Vegas Strip on Saturday stood up and started shooting "for no apparent reason," police said. Rolando Cardenas, 55, has been charged with shooting at passengers near the Cosmopolitan hotel-casino on Las Vegas Boulevard, killing one person and wounding another. The coroner's office identified the deceased victim as Gary Breitling, 57, of Montana. The other victim was shot in the stomach but is expected to live.

  4. A North Carolina man obsessed with the "Pizzagate" conspiracy theory who last December fired an AR-15 inside the restaurant at the center of the internet-fueled hysteria plead guilty to two weapons charges Friday. Edgar Maddison Welch, 28, will be sentenced in June for interstate transportation of a firearm and assault with a deadly weapon. Welch faces a prison terms between 18 and 60 months, below the maximum of 10 years for each charge.
