Va death called self-defense: "Police say last night's fatal shooting in North Richmond was a case of self-defense. Darrell Jerome Ross, 38, shot and killed Edward Mitchell Perry Jr. 29, after Perry came into Ross' home armed with a gun and looking for someone with whom Perry had had a previous disagreement, police said. Also during the ordeal, Perry shot an 18-year-old man in the hand, authorities said. The incident took place in the 3100 block of Griffin Avenue. Ross was charged with possession of a firearm by a felon, and police said they do not anticipate additional charges in the case. Police declined to provide additional details about the incident. A woman and two men at the house on Griffin Avenue declined to discuss in detail what had happened".

Jim Crow gun laws : "In case you own a gun, or might someday want to own a gun, you should know that congressman Bobby L. Rush of the Obama State introduced HR 45 on the first day of the 111th Congress. Make no mistake; what this bill seeks to impose are Jim Crow laws for gun owners. Since the Supreme Court's decision doesn't allow gun haters to ban guns, they plan to ban gun owners instead."

RI: Gun-rights advocates take permit law to task : "A behind-the-scenes tug of war has been going on between the state's police chiefs and gun ownership advocates over how local departments should decide who is allowed to carry a concealed firearm in public.For more than a year, members and volunteers with the Citizens' Rights Action League Rhode Island, a group of gun-rights supporters, have been showing up in police stations across the state, demanding to see the individual department's standards for deciding who gets a concealed-weapons permit. Police departments were required to develop such policies under the terms of a 2002 Superior Court decision in a suit brought by Smithfield resident James W. Archer, head of the gun-rights organization."

Vermont's Red Badge of Courage : "Vermont is the most free `State' in the `nation' with regard to firearms ownership and self-protection (with only Alaska as a close second), and was given a score of 4 out of a possible 100 by the Brady Campaign. Ed Cutler, president of Gun Owners of Vermont, in a recent interview, quipped that he would've been happier if the Brady Campaign's score had been zero. Note also that this callous denunciation by the Brady and NECPGV crowd flies in the face of the fact that Vermont enjoys one of the very lowest crime rates out of all 50 'states,' yet their `perfect' rating of 100 would reflect a society in which only bureaucrats - and other criminals - would be armed. One look at crime rates in the neighboring People's Republic of Marxachusetts explodes the Brady crowd's myth in a single blow."
