NY: Bloomberg stalls on releasing evidence: "More than three months after Mayor Bloomberg's announcement that he had sent private investigators into five states to catch gun dealers making illegal sales, he is refusing to turn over the evidence they've gathered to the federal agency that investigates illegal guns. Analysts said the impasse may have slowed the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms in its investigation of and possible action against gun dealers that broke the law."

MS: Police probe shooting; "Two men with gunshot wounds were discovered in a pickup in a south Jackson neighborhood Monday afternoon shortly after two neighboring business owners reported shooting at armed, masked men who had attempted to enter one of the businesses. ... Shortly after 3 p.m., workers at the Fairhill Drive address saw the men in front of the house, and police were called. About 15 minutes earlier, an attempted robbery was reported at J Town Auto Sales, 1500 U.S. 80 West. The owner reported firing at least two to three shots, Vance said. The men then ran west down U.S. 80 and passed Standard Shift Transmission next door. One of the men ran toward the owner, who also fired shots at them, Vance said. An employee at the transmission shop who didn't want to be identified said the business owner fired at one of the men after he pointed a gun at him."
