Georgia: Thug shot dead in store: "By 7:30 Monday evening it was business as usual at the Family Store in northwestern Atlanta. The store smelled freshly clean. The owners had removed the blood from the floor. Two hours earlier, according to witnesses, two men had come into the convenience store at 2535 Center St. and started beating a customer. The customer then produced a gun, said Manuel Fernandez, who was working the counter. Seconds later, a 26-year-old man lay dead on the floor. "It was two on one," the 20-year-old Fernandez said. "One was holding him, and the other was beating him in the face. That's when he got his arm free and pulled out the gun and shot." "I think it was over money." Outside, 14-year-old Vincent Cameron, who had been playing basketball at the store hoop, was apparently struck by a ricochet bullet. Relieved relatives said Vincent, who was being treated at a hospital, was going to be OK."

Tennessee teenager slain in home-invasion shootout: "Authorities this morning said a 16-year-old Knoxville boy was killed during a weekend home break-in that prompted a gun battle inside the residence. Jamodd Mack died in the 2:24 a.m. Saturday break-in at 1304 Iredell Ave., said Knoxville Police Department spokesman Darrell DeBusk. Mack and another person allegedly forced their way into the home through a back door, DeBusk said. Inside the home, Mack, who was armed with a handgun, was fired upon by a man who was visiting the woman who lives in the house, DeBusk. After the gun battle between the two people armed with handguns, Mack died in the house of multiple bullet wounds, DeBusk said. No one else in the home was injured during the gunfight, he said. The second male fled and has not been identified, DeBusk said. No charges have been filed in connection with the slaying."

Every shooter crazy 'bout a "gun-free" zone: "Guns were far easier to obtain in this country before 1968 -- you could buy them through the mail. But there were hardly any such mass-shooting rampages. On the other hand, chart the frequency of these mass shootings against the widespread introduction of such hallucinogenic drugs as Prozac, Ritalin and Luvox among the inmates of the tax-funded youth concentration camps -- the kinds of drugs that Kip Kinkel had been on, the kind that got Columbine killer Eric Harris blocked from enlistment in the Marines. Let me know what you find. Meantime, there's a second-best solution -- the one that 'allowed' congregation member and former police officer Jeanne Assam to cut short an intended rampage by disgruntled former student Matthew Murray, carrying two handguns, an assault rifle and more than 1,000 rounds of ammo, at the New Life Church in Colorado Springs just two months ago. Until they get around to properly re-labeling the depravity-inducing drugs which have been prescribed to nearly all these mass shooters ('This stuff may make you kill people,') Gov. Blagojevich could tell the Illinois Legislature and sundry county authorities it's way past time to restore the Second and 14th amendment right to self-defense in Illinois by repealing every one of their overlapping 'gun control' laws, ending that state's status as a de jure 'gun-free zone.'"

A sure fire argument on the Second Amendment: "That is the all-important context in which the Bill of Rights was created. The Anti-Federalists, men filled to varying degrees with fear, mistrust, and loathing of the new federal government, insisted on a bill of rights as additional shackles imposed on that new government. Knowing that alone, knowing that the famous Bill came into existence only to please those most apprehensive of the new government, definitively ends any confusion or debate surrounding the meaning of the Second Amendment. There is simply no way on Earth the Anti-Federalists would have surrendered to the new and mistrusted government the right to own any gun they wanted at any time they wanted in any number they wanted."
