WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. -- A growing effort by Los Angeles-area cities to take the lead on gun control legislation will move ahead next week, when the West Hollywood City Council considers a law that would ban the sale of Saturday night specials.The restrictions on the cheap, small handguns would be the first of their kind in California and -- if they can survive expected legal challenges -- they could pave the way for similar proposals in other cities, including Los Angeles.Despairing at the state Legislature's reluctance to pass gun-control laws, several Los Angeles County cities in the past year have been moving incrementally in an effort to control gun violence.

LOS ANGELES -- The prospect of waking up a half-hour earlier isn't exactly wowing Los Angeles area brokers and traders -- especially when they already must get ready for work in the middle of the night.The earlier hours are the result of this week's decision by the New York Stock Exchange to begin trading 30 minutes earlier, at 6 a.m. (9 a.m. New York time).The change, scheduled to begin Sept. 9, is being made to recapture trading now done on the London and Tokyo exchanges.For West Coast traders, the 30-minute extension means regular floor trading will last from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday.

LOS ANGELES -- The NFL floated an apparent trial balloon yesterday, saying it might enter into a partnership to build a football stadium in Los Angeles to keep a pro franchise here and serve as site of the Super Bowl on a rotating basis. But Los Angeles officials quickly dismissed the idea as unrealistic.Paul Tagliabue, the league commissioner, talked of the possible stadium in a halftime interview on the Fox television network, which has a contract that requires the NFL to keep a team in the Los Angeles area or receive less in payments from Fox.With the Rams and Raiders telling an NFL owners meeting in Dallas last week that neither now has a contractual agreement to keep playing in the Los Angeles area, Tagliabue said the purpose of a new stadium built in partnership with the city or the state of California would be to "keep [the]

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Al Davis, boss of the Los Angeles Raiders, and Carmen Policy, president of the San Francisco 49ers, got into what NFL sources described as a heated argument yesterday during a discussion over whether the Raiders would play the 1994 season in Los Angeles or Oakland.No decision or agreement was reached, and -- with the season beginning in little more than three months -- the league neither gave Davis a deadline to make a decision, nor did he indicate a date by which he would.

At the Los Angeles Civic Center, 1.26 inches had fallen by midafternoon, eclipsing the old record for the date of 0.90 of an inch, set in 1918.
