Delaware: Homeowner shoots alleged intruder dead : "Police said Thomas Morganstern, 60, was sleeping in an upstairs bedroom of his Roselle home when two men entered his home early Thursday morning. Morganstern, who is an avid hunter, grabbed a handgun and chased the men downstairs. Police said the men fired on Morganstern in the living room area and he shot back. Morganstern was not injured and he called police and reported the home invasion and shooting. Police searched the area near the South Woodward Avenue home in New Castle County and found Cleveland Richardson, 28, of Wilmington, 100 feet away, behind a detached garage. Richardson was taken to Christiana Hospital with a gunshot to the abdomen area. Stephen Norwood, 26, whose last known address identified him as a Wilmington resident, was found around 8:45 a.m. across the street and hidden under bushes. He had died from his injuries."

New York: Fired professor gets gun collection back : "A fired Westchester Community College instructor waging a free-speech battle against college officials is no danger to them or anyone else and may have a gun license, a judge has ruled in White Plains. Patrick Munroe's gun collection was seized after a pair of arrests on trespassing and harassment charges at the college in early 2004. The county moved to revoke Munroe's pistol license, but Westchester County Judge Barbara Zambelli denied the motion last week and ordered the county to return his guns. 'Before this application was filed, he held a pistol license for more than 32 years without incident,' Zambelli wrote of Munroe, a former Sleepy Hollow village trustee. 'His writings provided to the Court by the County are primarily satirical, and any attempt to characterize them as threats must be based on misinterpretation.'"
