FL: Intruder shooting justified: "Law enforcement officers and attorneys say the local woman who fatally shot an intruder at her Navy Point home would have been protected by state law even before the 'Stand Your Ground' law. Rhonda Eubanks, 57, a Baptist Hospital nurse, was alone Sunday night at her home on Gilliland Road when she shot Vincent Demond Wesley, 29, of Pensacola, in the head with a .38-caliber handgun, Escambia County Sheriff's Sgt. Mike Ward said Tuesday.It was the second time Wesley charged toward Eubanks."

One life Britain's gun bans did not save: "A boy of 12 has died after being shot in the eye with an air rifle while playing in a bedroom with his two best friends. Mitchel Picken, who excelled at several sports, was injured at lunchtime last Thursday and died in hospital two days later. His two friends, both aged 12, were arrested and held in custody for six hours. They were released on bail pending further inquiries. They were said to be utterly distraught. The dead boy’s parents said last night that they could not begin to describe their grief. It is thought that the three boys were “messing around” in a bedroom at one of their homes in Stoke-on-Trent, when the shot was fired. No adults were at home at the time." [Ban everything!]
