NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says he is calling for a "total and complete shutdown" on Muslims entering the United States. Trump says in a statement that his proposal comes in response to what he calls the level of hatred among "large segments of the Muslim population" toward Americans. A campaign spokesman says the ban would apply to "everybody," including tourists.

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — Federal authorities say they're trying to determine how two assault rifles used in the California attack got from a buyer to the shooters. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says Syed Farook bought three guns that have been recovered, including two pistols that he and his wife used in the shooting. The buyer hasn't been charged with a crime and it's unclear if he did anything illegal.

WASHINGTON (AP) — It's a victory for those who support controls on assault-style weapons. The U.S. Supreme court has rejected an appeal from gun owners who challenged a Chicago suburb's ban on assault weapons. The court, though, left in place a lower court ruling that found that local governments have leeway in deciding how to regulate firearms. The federal appeals court in Chicago had upheld the city of Highland Park's 2013 law that bans semi-automatic weapons and large-capacity magazines.

BALTIMORE (AP) — An expert medical witness for the state says prompt medical attention would have likely prevented the death of Freddie Gray, the man who died while in the custody of Baltimore police. Gray died of a severe spinal injury. Officer William Porter, on trial for manslaughter, was the driver of a police van in which Gray was being transported. Five other officers face trial.

PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii (AP) — A few dozen elderly men who survived the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor 74 years ago have gathered at the site to remember fellow servicemen who didn't make it. The U.S. Navy and National Park Service hosted a ceremony in remembrance of those killed on Dec. 7, 1941. About 3,000 people were expected to join the survivors.
