Louisiana: Man kills burglar: "A 20-year-old Destrehan man, who authorities say was attempting to burglarize a home, was killed Friday when the resident shot him in the side. Authorities said Nikita Dabney, of 315 River Oaks Drive, fell down the 20-foot ladder he had climbed to gain entry into the two-story duplex. He collapsed in the back yard and was pronounced dead when authorities arrived at the home .... Dabney had climbed an extension ladder outside the home and broke into the second floor through a window. Two other men, Samuel Vinett Jr., 19, of Destrehan and an unidentified 16-year-old juvenile also from St. Charles Parish, are accused of trying to burglarize the home with Dabney."

Former Boca Raton PIO arrested during Libertarian gun protest : "Arguing that gun buy-backs do not work, two Libertarian Party of Palm Beach County (LPPBC) officials were arrested this week during the city of West Palm Beach's gun buy-back program, 'Operation Cease Fire.' Two West Palm Beach officers told LPPBC Chairman Karl Dickey he would be arrested for trespass if he did not leave the property immediately, according to Dickey. 'We were there with cash in hand to purchase guns with private money to assist the City in their efforts in Operation Cease Fire and were immediately told to get off the property as we were not welcome there,' he said. ... Following the demand to leave the property, Dickey, along with LPPBC Treasurer (and former Boca Raton Public Information Officer) Neil Evangelista, took the protest to the sidewalk carrying signs. One sign read: 'A gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone;' a second sign argued: 'Educate yourself. Gun buybacks do not work.'"

New scholarship expands on "gun control"-genocide connection: "David Kopel, Paul Gallant and Joanne Eisen have published recently a new working paper, entitled 'Is Resisting Genocide a Human Right?' 'Resisting Genocide' is a 47-page scholarly article that argues that international law requires a mechanism for protecting people from genocide, but governmental entities have repeatedly failed to prevent or stop mass murders and genocides. Every human being has a right to fight against aggressors intending genocide, and the way to do that is to remain armed. Under international law and international norms, the authors show, the individual right to keep and bear arms must be preserved as the necessary means of preventing genocide. We at JPFO salute these authors and their excellent work. Articles like 'Resisting Genocide' are doing exactly what is needed: to develop and publicize the 'gun control' - genocide connection using solid research and applying the insights to current situations."
