ABSTRACT
The article describes the response states governments in United States to the school shootings in Littleton, Colorado. The public is rightly outraged about loose gun laws in the wake of the school shooting in Littleton. Except for the federal government in Washington, D.C., most states in the country are acting along the lines of pro-gun groups. Several states, such as California, have instituted restrictions on gun shows and purchases. But states such as Arizona, Nevada and Arkansas have moved to prohibit cities from suing gunmakers for the costs of gun-related crime. Similar moves were made by legislatures in Louisiana, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas. Contrary to a "New York Times" editorial, these states are not out of touch with the tides of public concerns about pro-gun groups in Washington, D.C.
