Delaware: Teen bandits flee after store clerk takes gun: "A store clerk turned the tables on a pair of armed robbers during an attempted holdup at a convenience store, Dover police said today. Two teens walked into the Little Grocer convenience store on East Division Street about 9 p.m. Sunday and demanded money, Lt. James Hosfelt said. When one of the bandits brandished a sawed-off shotgun in the direction of the clerk behind the counter, the gunman and clerk got into a physical confrontation, Hosfelt said. The clerk refused to hand over any money from the register and then grabbed the shotgun out of the hand of the would-be robber. After the clerk established control of the situation, the two bandits went running from the store, Hosfelt said."

VA: Students push for concealed guns on campus: "College students across Virginia are heading to Richmond this weekend to lobbying for two bills allowing concealed weapons on campus. `There was a lotta talk after Tech that a lot of different issues would have to be dealt with, and this is one we felt needed to be addressed,' explained George Mason University student Andrew Dysart. Dysart heads the group Students for Concealed Carry on Campus. They are against an administrative ban at GMU and other state schools that forbids anyone to carry a gun on campus, even though Virginia law allows citizens to have guns with a permit."
