In this March 17, 1996, photo, Britain's Queen Elizabeth places a floral bouquet with hundreds of others in front of Dunblane Primary School. In March 1996, a 43-year-old man named Thomas Hamilton walked into a primary school in this central Scotland town of 8,000 people and shot to death 16 kindergarten-age children and their teacher with four legally held handguns. In the weeks that followed, people in the town formed the Snowdrop campaign - named for the first flower of spring - to press for a ban on handguns. Within weeks, it had collected 750,000 signatures. By the next year, the ban had become law. (AP Photo/Ian Waldie, Pool-File)
