SC: Robbery victim charged too: "A man who says he was a victim of a robbery ended up arrested and facing a more serious charge after he shot at the alleged robbers, police said. Byron Blake Haynes, 21, told police that he was walking away from the BP gas station at 3000 Augusta Street in the Pleasant Valley area on Monday night when two men approached him. He said the men grabbed him and stole his cell phone. Police said that Haynes went to his home and got two guns and came back and shot at the suspects' vehicle as they drove away. James Kanard, 59, and Furman Kanard, 55, are charged with strong-arm robbery. Haynes is charged with assault with intent to kill and discharging a firearm. All three have been released on bond."

Seattle mayor wants to be two-time loser: "The Second Amendment Foundation today renewed its pledge to sue Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels if he pushes through a proposed rule that would ban legally-carried firearms in city Parks and Recreations Department facilities. The proposed rule change was announced Friday morning. SAF founder Alan Gottlieb quickly noted that this rule would violate Washington State’s long standing firearms preemption statute, first adopted more than 25 years ago. That law has become a model for similar state laws all over the country.”
