MD: Would-be robber injured: "A man shot and seriously injured an intruder looking to rob his home in a quiet neighborhood on Old Ocean City Road early Sunday morning, police said. John Steve Collian, 48, underwent surgery and was listed in stable condition at Peninsula Regional Medical Center, according to state police from the Salisbury barrack. They said Collian was shot in the abdomen after he allegedly broke into and tried to burglarize a home on the 3300 block of Old Ocean City Road just before 1 a.m., but was interrupted by the homeowner. The victim, James Joseph Rozaieski, 36, shot Collian one time before calling 911."

MI: Bill allows use of force in cases of self-defense: "If your home is your castle, can you use force -- even deadly force -- to protect it without getting sued or arrested? The answer would be yes, under legislation to be discussed today at a hearing before a state Senate committee. The bill has sparked debate: The head of the Michigan Sheriffs' Association says the concept raises questions about taking another person's life, and gun-control advocates contend it's too broad and could apply even to bar fights and playground squabbles."
