NY: Father shoots man pointing gun at son: "A Buffalo man who was supposedly buying rims for his truck at a Liddell Street residence was shot about 11:15 p.m. Tuesday when he attempted to rob the seller, Buffalo police said. Darius Spates, 23, of Northland Avenue pointed a gun at the seller, identified as Tony Winans, 21, of the Lidell address, and Winans' father, Tommy Travis, 44, of the same address, shot Spates, detectives said."

MI: Man holds female intruder at gunpoint while wife calls police: "A Clinton Township man woke from a deep sleep Wednesday morning to find a woman sitting on his living room couch counting his money. The man grabbed a loaded handgun and told the woman to freeze. He then ordered her at gunpoint to the ground while his wife called police."

South African gun owners at the cross roads: "There is a new pro-gun, pro-self defense organization in South Africa, and none too soon. Gun Owners of South Africa (GOSA) was publicly launched on January 26 in Cape Town. It was my pleasure to be on hand for the auspicious event. South African officials, including Communist Party Member and now Safety and Security Minister Charles Nqakula just days before the GOSA launch, made it clear that the purpose of the new law requiring reapplication for gun licenses was to disarm the public of all legal guns. Nqakula should know since his Ministry is in charge of administering the Firearms Control Act."
