Shelton's gun grab mentality: "Oklahoma State Rep. Mike Shelton's attitude about the rights of private citizens in an emergency reflects a mentality that might better serve a police state than one of the United States, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) said today. Shelton, a Democrat, was quoted by KOCO News in Oklahoma City this week arguing against legislation that would make it illegal for authorities to confiscate privately-owned firearms during emergency situations, as happened in New Orleans last year. The Second Amendment Foundation and National Rifle Association sued in federal court to stop that gun grab."

FL: Teen shoots when intruder breaks down door: "With a man breaking through the front door, a Hollywood 15-year-old loaded his father's gun, waited for the intruder to come in and shot him, police said. Keil Jumper, 22, who police said has a long rap sheet, was later found bleeding in an area between two houses. Police said Jumper was seriously injured but his injuries didn't appear life threatening. The incident happened about 3:30 a.m. Saturday, when Jumper attempted to break down the front door, then picked up a bicycle to smash the window, police said. The sounds terrified a family of eight to 10 people who were asleep in the home, which is on South 61st Avenue in Hollywood, police said. Police said the teenager is unlikely to be charged in the case."
