Calls for Gun Control in Senate, Teen Shot in City that Already Has Lots of Gun Control, Drug Testing for Everybody in London: P.M. Links


  • A teen who performed at President Barack Obama's inauguration last week was shot and killed in Chicago, which has very strict gun laws.

  • Former Arizona Representative and famous mass shooting survivor Gabrielle Giffords attended today's Senate Judiciary hearings to present the all-too-familiar "Won't somebody think of the children?" argument for something to be done.
  • London's police chief wants all workers to be tested for illegal drug use, and those who fail should get treatment or be fired.
  • A judge has ruled that Jerry Sandusky's lawyers had plenty of time to prepare his defense, and he will not be granted a new trial.
  • The U.S. attorney's office in Massachusetts may have another PR problem on its hands. They may have arrested and temporarily imprisoned the wrong man in a gang raid. Apparently he looked like a criminal. I bet most of us look like criminals to the U.S. attorney's office.
  • The FBI has raided the office of a Miami doctor who is suspected of helping provide underage Dominican prostitutes to New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez. Menendez denies the allegations.
