WA: Homeowner shoots suspect taking weapon from house: "A teenager was shot in the arm this morning by a Yakima resident who returned home to find his West Valley home being burglarized by two juveniles who were stealing weapons from the house, Yakima police said. The homeowner was returning home about 10:30 a.m. when he saw a brown Honda Accord he didn't recognize parked in the driveway. Inside, the man saw two teenagers, one of them carrying his rifle. Police said the homeowner opened fire with a .45 caliber handgun that he was carrying, injuring one of the burglary suspects. It was unclear whether the rifle was pointed at the man, but police said he was defending himself when he opened fire. The wounded teenager was taken to a Yakima hospital, where his condition was not immediately available. However, police said the gunshot was not life-threatening. The other suspect was arrested by police at the house.

Georgia: Homeowner sends burglars to hospital: "Investigators say two armed burglars invaded a home Friday night around 8:30pm on the 3000-block of Tate Rd. A struggle occurred between the homeowner and one of the men. The homeowner was shot in the arm, but was able to get the gun away from the burglars to shoot back. The two burglars drove themselves to the hospital where they were arrested. The two men have been identified as Montrelle Teasley and Marcus Turner. Both will be charged with armed robbery, burglary, aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm during a crime. Teasley is a juvenile, but will be charged as an adult."

SAF engages in worldwide struggle against gun grabbers: "The Second Amendment Foundation and the World Forum on the Future of Sport Shooting Activities (WFSA) met in Palermo, Italy, on October 4 and 5, 2007, to plan for a looming battle over global gun control. SAF joined the WFSA in 2006. The WFSA was formed in 1997, and is an officially recognized United Nations non-governmental organization, or NGO. SAF was represented by Julianne Gottlieb. The WFSA has 38 members including most of the major hunting and sport shooting organizations and the firearms and ammunition manufacturer associations. The WFSA Board meets twice a year."

Should teachers be allowed to carry guns at school?: "It has long been said that, 'God made all men, but Samuel Colt made all men equal.' No other personal weapon in history has been relied upon more by men and women alike, regardless of physical condition, build, or skill in self-defense techniques."
