Several gun-control measures will be heard in Salem this week. Four bills have been proposed on the issue. They would:

- Increase background check requirements.

- Strengthen restrictions on guns in schools and public buildings.

- And add more training to get a concealed handgun license.

The Senate Judiciary Committee could vote as early as this week. The bills would then head to the full Senate.
