Senate approves amendment requiring handgun safety locks

WASHINGTON (AP) The Senate on Thursday overwhelmingly agreed to require child safety locks on all handguns sold in the United States as part of a Republican-pushed package to immunize gun makers and sellers from lawsuits arising from gun crimes.
Senators voted 70-27 for the legislation after pleas from Democratic Sens. Barbara Boxer of California and Herb Kohl of Wisconsin, who said the legislation would help stop children from accidentally shooting themselves with handguns they find inside the home.
