FL: Victim shoots, kills home invader: "A man in Orange County grabbed a shotgun and shot and killed one of three home invaders inside his apartment late Sunday, according to police. Investigators said three men burst into a home at the Pine Harbor apartments located near state Road 408 and Rouse Road just after 11:30 p.m. Monday. During the incident, the homeowner fired a shotgun at the men, causing the three men to flee, police said. A man believed to be involved in the incident later arrived at a hospital and died from a gunshot injury, according to investigators."

Kentucky Man Charged After Being Shot: "A Lincoln County man was charged with wanton endangerment after being shot by a man he threatened, Kentucky State Police said yesterday. Jerry Cornett, 48, of Kings Mountain was taken to the Lincoln County Jail after being treated at Fort Logan Hospital in Stanford. He is accused of threatening to kill Randall Taylor and going to Taylor's house on Martins Trail in Stanford shortly before 10:50 p.m. Monday with a gun he fired at the man inside the house. Taylor reportedly fired a shotgun, hitting Cornett in the arm and face. Cornett was arrested at the hospital Tuesday."

Contemplating mass murder in Omaha: ""It's just a sign. They have one painted on the entrance to our local Blockbuster, and there's another on the glass front door of my doctor's office, as well. The notice usually reads 'No Firearms Permitted' or something to that effect, and is often accompanied by a graphic: the outline of a pistol or revolver superimposed by a big red European 'forbidden' symbol. As surely as a baseball cap turned around backwards, it is a sign of unadulterated stupidity at work. It might even be funny, if it weren't responsible for the sudden, violent deaths of eight innocent individuals this week at a shopping mall in Omaha, Nebraska, not to mention countless others in the recent past and many more in the future."
