Georgia Mother Shot, Son Shoots Stepfather: "A Fulton County woman was shot twice in the stomach early Monday morning by her estranged husband, police said. Fulton County police said the woman was being escorted to her car in front of her home on Leisure Lane in south Fulton County by her son when her estranged husband shot her with a shotgun. The woman's son returned fire, shooting his stepfather before calling police, investigators said. Police said the couple was involved in an on-going domestic dispute, with the woman obtaining a restraining order against her estranged husband before the shooting. The woman's son had been walking her to her car in front of her home daily in order to provide protection for her, investigators said. Both the woman and her estranged husband are in serious condition at a local hospital."

British gun crime on the rise as number of armed police falls: "The number of firearms officers working in areas where gun crime is soaring has fallen sharply, figures released reveal. And despite a steep overall rise in firearms-related offences, the total number of weapons-trained officers has dropped. In gun crime 'hotspots' such as Liverpool and Nottingham there are around 40 per cent fewer armed officers. The stark contrast between rising gun crime and falling numbers of armed police was highlighted in statistics released by the Home Office in response to Tory parliamentary questions."
