I am still constantly amazed at the length to which The Times will go to present its biased, one-sided reporting on the gun issue. In the April 20 edition, George Skelton gets to vilify the minimum 70 million gun owners in this country by lumping them with "lone nuts" who, quite honestly, seem no nuttier to me than Skelton himself. This is followed with an editorial that manages to imply that we gun owners should trust the legislative process to do the right thing, while at the same time exposing the legislative process as a foul, untrustworthy instrument subject to "snits" and "dithering" by villains who feel no shame at the slaughter of children.

Firearms now have surpassed motor vehicles as the leading cause of traumatic death in the United States. This new fact stands as an appalling milestone in the ongoing surge of gun violence. A study by the UC Davis Violence Prevention Research Program of statistical trend lines in America found that guns surpassed vehicle-related accidents last year as the leading cause of fatal traumas. Auto deaths are on the decline.

Even though there were moments when it felt suspiciously like a peace rally, Tuesday night's fund-raiser for the Shelter Partnership was no '60s flashback. Joan Baez, who provided the evening's entertainment, couldn't resist a chance to to speak out against war. "I'm always grateful to have a platform," she said. But otherwise, the evening's focus was Los Angeles' growing homeless population.

After a 1988 management audit rebuking the Los Angeles Fire Department for unacceptably slow response times to medical emergencies, the city's Fire Commission on Thursday approved a plan to revamp the department's emergency medical dispatch system. The department's plan--which includes expanding an experimental ambulance corps staffed by firefighters--met with sharp criticism from the president of the union representing paramedics.

Aficionados of films and the arts might pay almost any price to attend a recital by the man who played Moses in the movies. But one organization says no one should go to see actor Charlton Heston perform--at least at the Skirball Cultural Center.

To help share information about guns and their histories, the head of the Los Angeles division of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms proposed Monday the creation of a regional task force of various local law enforcement agencies and prosecutors. Speaking at a conference on gun enforcement laws at City Hall, Richard Curd, the bureau's director, said there is a need for police and prosecutors to swap gun tracing information in a timely, efficient manner.
