FL: Seizure law riles Cooper City residents: "Under the city law, once the city declares a state of emergency, officials would be able to regulate fuel and alcohol sales, close any place of public assemblage and prohibit public possession or display of firearms. In addition, they would be able 'to confiscate merchandise, equipment, vehicles or property needed to alleviate any emergency condition.'"

KY: Gun ban at parks challenged: "People may soon be able to carry guns, including concealed weapons, onto the grounds of Scott County's parks and other county-owned property. During Friday's Scott County Fiscal Court meeting, Judge-Executive George Lusby told the court he had received two letters from The Kentucky Coalition to Carry Concealed Inc. claiming signage at the Scott County park prohibiting the carrying of concealed weapons is unlawful."

TX: Man with AK-47 helps thwart robbery: "When Arthur Winters saw two armed robbers terrorizing his neighborhood, he did the only thing he could think of: He asked his wife to bring him his AK-47. 'I had to get it to protect my family and the neighbors and all that,' Winters said. It was part of a series of events, including a fistfight, rock-throwing and haphazard gunshots, that hammered the plans of two robbery suspects Saturday afternoon, leaving one shot and the other stuck in the mud."
