OH: Club-goer shot dead after pulling gun: "Terrance Crowell, 32, was shot twice in the chest after firing four shots at Club 360, 1474 Fort Benning Road, just before 2:30 a.m. Raheem Hunter, 30, is charged with a misdemeanor count of being in possession of a firearm at a prohibited location in connection with the fatal shooting, said Lt. Lynn Joiner. “The shooting seems to be self-defense,” Joiner said. “(Hunter’s) not being charged with anything else right now.” Crowell, who police said had no prior disagreement or argument with anyone at the club, pulled out a .22-caliber revolver and began shooting into the air. Hunter, armed with a large-caliber semi-automatic weapon, then confronted Crowell, the lieutenant said. "Crowell pointed his weapon back at the man and another person, so (Hunter) shot him twice in the chest,” Joiner said. Crowell ran outside and into the parking lot, where he collapsed. Police found him lying in the parking lot when they arrived, Joiner said. Coroner Bill Thrower pronounced Crowell dead on the scene"

Cases lining up to ask Supreme Court to clarify Second Amendment rights: "A funny thing has happened in the three years since gun-rights activists won their biggest victory at the Supreme Court. They’ve been on a losing streak in the lower courts. “Three years and more than 400 legal challenges later, courts — so far — have held that the Supreme Court’s ruling in Heller was narrow and limited. As Maryland’s highest court, the Court of Appeals, put it: “If the Supreme Court ..... meant its holding to extend beyond home possession, it will need to say so more plainly.”
