The loonies win in San Francisco (Surprise!): "Voters approved ballot measures to ban handguns in San Francisco and urge the city's public high schools and college campuses to keep out military recruiters Tuesday. With 100 percent of San Francisco precincts reporting, 58 percent of voters backed the proposed gun ban while 42 percent opposed it. Measure H prohibits the manufacture and sale of all firearms and ammunition in the city, and make it illegal for residents to keep handguns in their homes or businesses. Only two other major U.S. cities - Washington and Chicago - have implemented such sweeping handgun bans".

South Carolina: Gunman,victim killed in robbery: "Two people were shot and killed in a possible robbery attempt in Anderson County Monday morning. Deputies were called to the Cleanup Shop on South McDuffie Street shortly after 8 a.m. When they arrived, they found two people with gunshot wounds. Witnesses said a man walked into the shop and opened fire, hitting one man four times, then ran away. As the gunman ran, another man in the store picked up a gun and opened fire on him, hitting him at least once. Both men were transported to Anderson Area Medical Center, where both died a short time later."
