"I am trying to stop the criminals from being able to get guns. That's all I'm trying to do. This is not a game to me.

An impassioned plea by a Congresswoman who lost her husband to gun violence... wasn't enough to sway votes for tougher gun legislation. In the wee hours this morning, House members defeated a measure proposed by New York Democrat, Carolyn McCarthy. It would have required background checks for all purchases at gun shows.
((nat sot))

An earlier vote was also considered a major win for the National Rifle Association. By a slim margin, the House approved an amendment that would loosen restrictions at gun shows. The measure--put forth by Repulican John Dingell of Michigan--would cover fewer gun shows than current law... and it would only require 24-hour background checks--instead of three days:
((SOT: REP. JOHN DINGELL/ R-MI))

"Twenty-four hours is quite enough. Now gun shows are not criminals who are bent on destroying the lives and well-beings of innocent citizens. They are a group of innocent citizens who are doing something that goes back as far as Plymouth Rock... they're getting together to sell and trade and engage in commerce." ((LOCATOR: COLOGNE, GERMANY)) Last night's votes were a major disappointment for President Clinton, who has been lobbying hard for tougher gun laws. While attending a summit in Germany, the President blasted House members for making it easier for criminals to buy guns:
((SOT: PRESIDENT CLINTON))

"It was a win for the NRA, but it was a defeat for the children of America." But there's still no guarantee any of these measures will stick when a final vote on gun control is held today. JIM CHENEVEY, CBS News, New York.))

Danville police are looking for 29-year old Harry Lee Fuller Junior in connection with the fatal shooting of Fabian Wimbush last month.

Actual work is still years away though.

[IN Q=Each bridge in unique]

((DOUG MARTIN/LOCAL HISTORIAN: EACH BRIDGE IS UNIQUE, THOUGH. AS I GO INTO THE COMMUNITY AND TALK TO THE OLDER PEOPLE THAT REMEMBER THEM, THEY'LL HAVE A STORY ABOUT AN ACCIDENT OR HIDING IN THE BRIDGE, OR A WAGON LOAD OR HAY THAT WAS IN THERE, OR A DEEP SNOW OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.))
