Conn. and reached a peak after a deadly college campus shooting in Oregon as Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton called for a “national movement” to take on the National Rifle Association On Monday Clinton put forward a plan to extend background checks on gun sales and hold gun manufacturers accountable for negligence Although it’s unlikely to get past the Republican-controlled Congress the plan represents a new template on the issue for Democratic presidential candidates "We took them on in the ’90s We’re gonna take them on again And I will need your help to do that" Clinton said at Broward College in Florida on Friday Read More: Hillary Clinton Pushes for Expanded Gun Control Measures After Oregon Shooting One Clinton rival former Maryland Gov Martin O’Malley has proposed even more restrictive gun control laws and boasted of passing some of the toughest laws in the country after the Newtown shooting He brags about being featured on the cover of the NRAs magazine with the bolded headline "Martin OMalley: Menace to the Second" Even Sen Bernie Sanders who is known for a moderate record on gun control in hunting-friendly Vermont delivered fiery remarks in Boston on Saturday calling for extended federal background checks and ending "the sale and distribution of semi-automatic weapons whose only goal is to kill people" "If we do all of these things we can lessen the likelihood of these horrendous disasters" Sanders said Saturday For critics of gun control Democrats’ call for greater restrictions in the wake of the Newtown and Oregon shootings politicize the tragedies They argue guns help protect Americans faced with violence an argument that polls show many Americans agree with Democratic candidates are unfazed by this opposition Its a departure from the stance Democrats have taken for years when they tended to tread carefully on the issue of gun control afraid of arousing the ire of rural white voters and losing swing states like Ohio or Colorado Presidential candidates from Al Gore to Hillary Clinton in 2008 sounded moderate tones on gun control and were often eager to flaunt their pro-Second Amendment bona fides But a series of mass shootings in recent years has shifted public opinion on the issue emboldening gun control activists who have scored victories at the state level even while federal momentum has stalled Politics Newsletter Sign up to receive the day’s top political stories View Sample Sign Up Now "In 2008 presidential candidates were not talking about gun violence As we look ahead to 2016 they are talking about it" said John Feinblatt president of Everytown for Gun Safety a gun safety advocacy group that grew out of the Newtown shootings "This is a sea change in American politics and a sea change in politicians calculus about whether it depresses turnout" Democrats recent caution over gun control dates back to major election losses at the state and federal level in the Bush era When Al Gore lost the 2000 election and Democrats failed to retake the House of Representatives Democrats blamed the defeat on his pro-gun control stances which stemmed from the 1999 shooting at Columbine High School in Colorado President Bill Clinton a staunch gun control advocate himself offered a dispiriting post-election autopsy for supporters of more restrictions The NRA and gun lobbyists he said in 2001 "probably had more to do than anyone else in the fact we didn’t win the House this time and they hurt Al Gore" Four years later John Kerry went on a hunting photo-op and firmly insisted that he was pro-gun and pro-Second Amendment "Let me be clear I support the Second Amendment I am a gun owner I am a hunter" Kerry said during that election During the 2008 election then-Sen Obama backed off his 1990s-era support for a ban on the sale and possession of handguns Hillary Clinton’s shifting rhetoric on gun control offers a good measure of the changes in the Democratic position As a candidate for Senate in 2000 she advocated for a federal gun registry But eight years later during a bruising primary election with Obama she took a more moderate tone on gun control She said she "wholeheartedly" supported the Second Amendment and wanted to see a "meeting of the minds" between gun owners and safety advocates "We really should have a summit where everybody comes together on all sides of this issue and lets figure out how we can be consistent with the Second Amendment which I wholeheartedly support and do more to keep people safe" she said in Feburary 2008 Clinton backed off her earlier support for a federal registry of gun ownership She won big states with strong pro-gun stances and large rural white populations like Ohio West Virginia Nevada Kentucky and others The Newtown shooting marked a turning point on the issue however In the wake of the massacre a Gallup poll showed a jump in support for stricter laws on the sale of firearms with nearly two-thirds of adults backing expanded background checks which ultimately failed to pass Congress President Obama pressed Congress hard to pass stricter gun control measures which ultimately failed in the Senate despite gaining a 54-vote majority Meantime a number of well-funded gun control advocacy groups arose after of the shooting including Everytown in 2014 an alliance between Moms Demand Action Action for Gun Sense and Mayors Against Illegal Guns which dates back to 2006 Successful gun safety ballot initiatives in a number of states were faced with hard-fought challenges from the NRA but gun lobbies were ultimately unsuccessful in stopping them Voters in Washington last year overwhelmingly supported mandatory background checks on private gun sales and a law passed in Oregon this year requiring universal background checks A number of other states including Delaware Colorado Illinois and Maryland have expanded some form of gun restrictions since 2012 Now as Democrats are engaged in the first competitive primary since Newtown gun control has become a presidential campaign issue as well "The Democrat who thought he or she could in essence placate the gun lobby found out it really wasnt the case" said Daniel Webster director of Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research As to Clinton "youre clearly seeing someone who is not as cautious as she was in 2008" With mass shootings continuing to happen the rhetoric around the debate has only intensified on the Democratic side On Monday Clinton choked up while bringing on stage the mother of a 6-year-old boy killed at Newtown "So many of the parents of these precious children who were murdered have taken the unimaginable grief they have been bearing and have tried to be the voices that we need to hear" Clinton said Contact us

their customers’ data back and forth across the Atlanticthe route taken by half the Internet traffic on the planetwithout having to ask their permission in advance The European Court of Justice in Luxembourg ruled that the agreement violated privacy rights of regular citizens since they have no control over how their data is ultimately used That decisiondeclaring the agreement null and voidwas recently described to Fortune by a business group as the “Doomsday scenario” which would throw companies’ global operations into chaos Safe Harbor which the US and EU officials in 2000 when online commerce was taking off was a way of allowing companies to conduct business on the borderless Internet “It is fair to say this is a bombshell” Wim Nauwelaerts a Brussels partner for the US law firm Hunton & Williams who represents American companies in the EU said by phone on Tuesday “There are thousands of companies who genuinely rely on the Safe Harbor network to transfer data in order for them to do business” But despite those complications the EU judgement is clear: The Safe Harbor agreement is none too safe Under EU laws companies are allowed to transfer their customers’ data only if “the third country in question ensures an adequate level of protection” the ruling says And for that level of protection the EU judges concluded don’t look to the US Tuesday’s ruling is a measure of how deep the impact is in Europe of Edward Snowden’s NSA leaks more than two years after they exploded The court decision says the US has failed to show that they collect people’s data in a way that is “strictly necessary and proportionate to the protection of national security” It also said that both Americans or Europeans have “no administrative or judicial means of redress” if their data is used for reasons they did not intend In fact it was the NSA’s PRISM program that doomed Safe Harbor and which will now frame future negotiations between the US and Europe about how companies transfer data In 2013 Snowden revealed that the agency was scooping up mammoth quantities of people’s details by tapping into the data bases of giant US tech and telcoms companies Since all those megacompanies were signatories to the Safe Harbor agreement the Safe Harbor rules proved a legal framework for PRISM according to Tuesday’s EU court ruling “Companies such as Google Facebook Microsoft Apple Yahoo had hundreds of millions of clients in Europe and transferred personal data to the United States for processing” it says The ruling jolted US officials yet they should hardly have been taken by surprise In late September the EU’s Advocate General Yves Bot published an opinion slamming the lack of data-privacy protections under Safe Harbor and saying that the US intelligence agencies carried out “mass indiscriminate surveillance” In response the US Mission to the EU in Brussels said in a statement that “the United States does not and has not engaged in indiscriminate surveillance of anyone including ordinary European citizens” The EU court did not buy it Now comes the messy process of reworking rules for business US and EU officials have been negotiating new Safe Harbor rules since 2013 and in recent weeks both sides have said they were close to agreement The new rules would likely include assurancesnever before made that governments will not access data of regular citizens “It’s vital for companies to be able to function in a multijurisdictional environment and a global trading world” says Paul Meller spokesman for Digital Europe a lobbying group in Brussels representing multinational tech companies “Most would agree Safe Harbor is not perfect but it’s a pragmatic way of getting over this jurisdictional issue” In 2000 it was urgent to figure out how to transfer basic information like credit cards names addresses and other data that now underpins billions of dollars worth of Internet business Yet few could have foreseen that such data could just as easily be used for governments to conduct mass surveillance “Hindsight in a beautiful thing” Henriette Tielemans a data-privacy lawyer at the Covington law firm in Brussels said in a statement emailed to Fortune on Tuesday “We must all remember that in 2015 things are different than they were in 2000” Nonetheless it was the hindsight of one young Austrian student Max Schrems that set in motion the downfall of Safe Harbor At just 24 Schrems then a law student in Vienna spent six months studying at Santa Clara University in California in 2011 when he sat in on a class by a Facebook lawyer Schrems told me he was shocked to hear the lawyer brush off concerns about data privacy “I was the only European in the room” he said “The basic theme was ‘you can do whatever you want’” Schrems researched Facebook’s privacy rules for his thesis concluding that they violated EU laws He lodged a complaint against the Data Privacy Commission of Ireland where Facebook has its EU headquarters He crowdsourced the funding for his case online and petitioned Facebook to get his datareceiving 1200 pages of documents including 300 pages of data he had deleted from his Facebook page All that became the basis for the case in the EU court about controlling data-transfer rules with the USan issue that has grown massively in support among Europeans since the Snowden revelations Schrems who turned 28 last week says he could not have imagined back in California that his youthful student outrage might lead to an entire rewriting of trans-Atlantic rules Seconds after the EU court announced its ruling
