KY: Pistol scares off gunmen: "Kentucky State Police want to find two men who tried to force their way into an Allen County home early Tuesday morning. The alleged home invasion happened around 3 a.m. at Gordon Absher's house at 3440 Old Bowling Green Road in Scottsville. Absher says someone rang the doorbell, and when he looked outside he saw two men with their faces covered holding shotguns. Absher opened his door, pointed a pistol at one of the suspects and then grabbed the suspect's gun. Absher says the two men ran down the driveway to their truck, leaving the shotgun and other evidence behind. Police are looking for two white men in their early 20s, traveling in a small dark-colored pickup truck." [Wow! For once they were able to mention the race of the offenders!]

Detroit: Gun "buy back" may help killers: "A gun 'buy back' staged this week by the Detroit, Mich. Police was so successful that it ran out of money, and the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) is concerned that it may have allowed some criminals to successfully get rid of their murder weapons. 'All of the guns taken in by this project will be melted down, no questions asked,' noted CCRKBA Chairman Alan M. Gottlieb. 'That's just swell. Detroit homicides are up 17 percent so far this year, and this program just might be letting some killer destroy the evidence that could put him or her behind bars. Brilliant, just brilliant!'"
