La.: Would-be robber shot and killed : "A man was shot and killed in Shreveport early today as he tried to rob another man, police said. Police said patrol officers conducting a traffic stop on West 70th Street heard several gunshots coming from the next street over about 3:30 a.m. Officers went to the 300 block of West 69th Street and found Messiah Demery, 27, of the 8000 block of Line Ave., shot once in the chest. Demery was dead on arrival at LSU Hospital. Police said Demery had been trying to rob two men -- Rodrigus Kennedy and Shamicheal Kennedy -- as they sat in a car in the driveway of the house. Rodrigus got a gun and shot Demery, police said. The gun used in the shooting was located inside a house. Police said they also found some marijuana and arrested Rodrigus Kennedy on drug charges. He has not been charged in connection with the shooting of Demery; that part of the investigation is continuing, police said."

IL: Robber ends up shot: "A 22-year-old man is under arrest after a morning shooting that started as an armed robbery attempt. Police say C.L. Phillips got into 29-year-old Antwonne Hudson's car on Searles Avenue, pointed a gun at him, and tried to rob him. Phillips drove the car to Sablewood Drive where there was an altercation, he got his hands on the gun, and shot Phillips in the foot. Phillips was treated and released at Rockford Memorial Hospital. He is now charged with Unlawful Use of Weapons by Felon and Armed Robbery."

Gun owners are the last line of defense: "More than 50 million Americans went to the polls and chose Barrack Hussein Obama, heretofore referred to as Bo, to be the 44th president of the United States. He seeks to employ, deploy, and set upon our nation a civilian corps, better armed and trained than our military.... The status quo and Murphy's law stand in Bo's way. There are, according to government stats, between 60 and 100 million gun owners in this country. I expect a third of them to knuckle under and capitulate, a third will hide and deny, and a third will fight back. Even conservatively 20 to 25 million people in active revolt is going to be a problem for Bo. Don't fear Bo but don't assume that his plans don't include or apply to you. They do. Aim Low and follow up.

Nomination of Holder for AG signals Obama anti-gun agenda : "The nomination of Eric Holder for the post of attorney general of the United States sends an `alarming signal' to gun owners about how the Barack Obama administration will view individual gun rights, as affirmed this year by the Supreme Court, the Second Amendment Foundation said today. `Eric Holder signed an amicus brief in the Heller case that supported the District of Columbia's handgun ban, and also argued that the Second Amendment does not protect an individual right,' noted SAF founder Alan Gottlieb. `He has supported national handgun licensing and mandatory trigger locks. As deputy attorney general under Janet Reno, he lobbied Congress to pass legislation that would have curtailed legitimate gun shows.'"
