Brave Australian: "A shop attendant has overpowered a man wielding a sawn-off shotgun during an attempted robbery at a southwest Melbourne milk bar. Police say a 29-year-old man was arrested at the Herne Hill shop in Geelong and charged with several armed robberies on milk bars and a post office in the area between July and August. A police spokesman says the man, from Bell Post Hill, appeared in an out of sessions hearing charged with five counts of armed robbery and one count of attempted armed robbery. He's been remanded in custody to appear at the Geelong Magistrate Court today".

Minutemen to carry guns: "A controversial volunteer patrol unit will be allowed to carry weapons in the State of Texas. This comes from leaders of the Minutemen Civil Defense Corps in Texas. They said volunteers who have a state concealed handgun license can carry firearms while observing day workers in Houston. Initially, they were allowed to only videotape suspected illegal immigrants. Critics fear violence could follow the change. In April, the group got national attention when members patrolled the Arizona-Mexico border to report suspected illegal immigrants".
