Sneak attack on gun owners: "They're at it again. Gun-control advocates and their friends in state government are once again trying to nibble away at your right to own firearms. But you've got to hand it to them, as they're quite crafty. This latest proposal, which is merely a retread of Gov. Ed Rendell's 2002 campaign proposal to restrict firearm ownership, would limit handgun purchases to one per month. It all sounds relatively mild. After all, who would want to purchase more than one handgun per month?"

OH: Property owner charged in teen's shooting: "A man who told police he was annoyed by trespassers at his house considered spooky by local teens was charged Wednesday with shooting and critically wounding a teenager whom authorities say might have been looking for a scare. The 17-year-old girl and her friends got out of their parked car about 10 p.m. Tuesday near the home by Walnut Grove Cemetery and heard what they thought were firecrackers, Worthington Police Chief Mike Mauger said. They got back in the car, went around the block and heard more of what turned out to be gunshots, Mauger said. Allen S. Davis, 40, was charged with five counts of felonious assault. 'He admitted to never calling the police (about trespassers), but it just had been occurring and he got frustrated and he was upset saying someone trespassed on his property and he was protecting his property,' police Lt. Doug Francis said."
