Truck dealer gives good replies to CNN interviewer over "promotional" AK47s

CNN tried to make him look a kook but instead he kept his cool and used CNN to get gun-ownership points over. I'm guessing he's one heck of a good salesman for trucks too. Note to CNN: Don't mess with salesmen!

PA: Suspect shot in pizza-joint robbery attempt: "The attempted robbery occurred at 11:43 p.m. Saturday at Tony's Place, a pizzeria on Frankford Avenue near Cambria Street, in Kensington. A masked gunman in his mid-20s burst into the restaurant, demanding money, police spokeswoman Officer Christine O'Brien said. The 43-year-old store owner pushed away the would-be robber's gun, and then a friend of the owner who was inside the shop tried to wrestle the gun away from the man, police said. During the struggle, the robber fired two shots, but no one was injured, O'Brien said. The owner, who had a permit to carry a concealed weapon, then pulled out his own firearm and shot the man in the back and shoulder, police said. The gunman, who was not identified by police, was taken to Temple University Hospital, where he was in critical condition and being held as a prisoner. He was expected to be charged with robbery and related offenses once he regains consciousness, police said. The owner and his friend were not identified by police but neither is expected to face charges.

MS: Robbery suspect shot in Jackson: "Police do not expect to charge a Jackson homeowner who shot and wounded a man he found breaking into his car early Sunday morning. About 5 a.m., a homeowner in the 200 block of East Ash St. saw two men breaking into his Chrysler Sebring parked in front of the house, Jackson Assistant Chief Lee Vance said. The homeowner got a gun and shot one of the suspected burglars, Vance said. Michael Evans, 26, was shot in a thigh while still inside the Sebring, he said. The second suspect, who has not been identified, was able to get away. Police are searching for the other man. Evans was taken to a hospital and treated for injuries that were not life-threaten-ing, Vance said. Once Evans is released, Vance said, he will be charged in the burglary. He did not appear on the Jackson arrest docket Sunday night. Jackson police will turn the findings from the investigation over to a Hinds County grand jury, which will determine whether the homeowner will be charged. Vance would not say whether the case falls under the Castle Doctrine but said "the homeowner has a right to protect his property."

The road to Damascus: "Where gun rights are concerned, a ‘Road to Damascus’ moment occurs when a formerly anti-gun or gun-shy person decides to become a gun owner. For some, this comes after careful consideration of the issue. For others, it comes after a traumatic event illustrates to them just how critical self-defense is to a law-abiding citizen. In either case, being able to help such a new gun owner is one of the most rewarding things that an instructor gets to do.”
