Jersey City to require gun manufacturers bidding for city contracts to answer a series of questions on gun safety.

    As the US marks the anniversary of the Sandy Hook shooting rampage, and as another school shooting has just unfolded in the state of Colorado, American guns laws continue to fuel international debate.
