Gun laws in the US, state by state - interactive — President Obama has indicated a move towards strengthening federal gun control measures, but the reality is that the majority of gun legislation in the US is enacted at the state level.

Jobs data interactive: is your job market growing or shrinking? — Since September 2008, when US investment bank Lehman Brothers collapsed and sent shockwaves throughout the international banking community, the United States jobs market has grown and contracted in fits and starts

The Pentagon Finally Details its Weapons-for-Cops Giveaway — You may have heard that the image-conscious Los Angeles Unified School District chose to return the grenade launchers it received from the Defense Department's surplus equipment program.
