Florida Man Shoots Intruder Who Climbed In Window: "Police said a Fort Pierce resident shot a man who climbed in through a bedroom window of the home. Carlos Contreras was arrested Wednesday after he checked himself in to a Port St. Lucie medical facility to be treated for what he claimed was a stab wound from a screwdriver. Fort Pierce police said Contreras was the same man who tried to burglarize Bulmaro Aguilar's home earlier that morning. Officers were called to home on South 25th Street after Aguilar reported that he shot an intruder. Aguilar told police that while he was at home, Contreras knocked on his door, but Aguilar didn't answer.

NH: Open carry activist outside town hall meeting: “Outside the event where President Obama will conduct his town hall, there is an anti-Obama protestor with a gun — a pistol strapped to his lower leg. The local police chief said it’s legal for the man to have a registered handgun — as long as it is not concealed. What’s more, he is on private property, a church yard, which has given him permission to be there. … The local police say he is within his rights to carry a handgun openly under state law. He was carrying a 9-mm Smith and Wesson strapped to his lower leg. … He’s passing out a bookmark that says, ‘Join the Second Amendment Revolution, the most exciting pro-liberty movement in over 200 years.’”
