Restricting the sale of replica guns will be one of Labour's priorities in a third term.
A Violent Crime Reduction Bill, tackling gun and knife crime, is expected to feature in the first Queen's Speech following the election, if Tony Blair wins again.
The Violent Crime Reduction Bill would restrict the sale of replica guns, raise the age limit for buying knives to 18, and deal with violent crime related to alcohol.
Head teachers would gain legal rights to search pupils for knives or guns
Other Bills to be given priority include a Work and Families Bill extending maternity leave and pay, and delivering greater flexibility and parental choice in child care.
This will also include measures to extend home ownership, creating shared equity schemes in which the state shares the cost with the householder, and encouraging mixed community estates, with people from a range of income brackets living in the same neighbourhood.
Labour will also introduce an Education and Skills Bill, allowing successful schools to expand by taking over less successful schools.
Hospital infections will be targeted by a Health Improvement and Protection Bill, changing the way wards and hospitals are managed.
A Welfare Reform Bill will reform Incapacity Benefit and offer new support to people seeking to return to work, and remove disincentives to work.
Labour is also expected to reintroduce the ID Cards Bill as quickly as it can, and to respond to concerns about asylum and immigration with a Bill allowing asylum seekers to be locked up for 24 hours while their claim is processed.
And yet another Anti Terrorism Bill will be introduced, with measures to catch and convict people planning terrorist activity or who "glorify or condone" acts of terror.
