Senator pushes anti-murderabilia law

U.S. Sen. John Cornyn is announcing a new bill that would make it harder for convicts to make money off "murderabilia" -- collectibles that are tied to notorious crimes. If passed, the law would make it illegal for prisoners, or their proxies, to mail items for interstate commerce, the Houston Chronicle reports. This wouldn't completely stop murderabilia, but it would stop one of the big sources: letters, paintings, even hair that prisoners send from behind bars.
