MD: Intruder killed in early morning shooting: "A suspected burglar was shot and killed in Perry Hall Sunday morning when he was confronted by a homeowner with a gun. According to Baltimore County Police, officers responded to the shooting at 5:46 a.m. in the 4200 block of Chapel Road in Perry Hall.

The burglary suspect was taken to Franklin Square Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. No one else was injured. Police have not released the names of the resident or the suspected burglar."

NH: Home intruder shot: "A home intruder was shot in the leg in Lincoln on Wednesday night, police said. Police said an intoxicated man entered an apartment at 29 Main St. at about 8:30 p.m. A resident fired a warning shot into the wall before shooting the man in the leg, police said. ‘The best we can piece together is that (the intruder) knew someone who used to live in that apartment, and he thought that individual might still have been there,’ said Chief Theodore Smith. The people inside the apartment threw the man out, but police said he returned. ‘Then, he proceeded to come back into the place and threatened one of them,’ Smith said. ‘The individual pulled out a weapon to defend himself.’”

Cleared Gun Dealer Sues Arizona AG: "A Phoenix gun dealer claims the Arizona Attorney General defamed and wrongfully prosecuted him - unsuccessfully - on bogus allegations that he was "a major firearms trafficker for the Mexican drug cartels." George Iknadosian, owner of X-Caliber Guns, was acquitted of 21 counts, including forgery, fraud, and assisting a criminal syndicate. Iknadosian claims he was acquitted after it became clear that witnesses made false statements to receive "favorable plea agreements." A judge dismissed the criminal case against Iknadosian in 2009 and ordered all of his seized property to be returned ... Iknadosian claims that Phoenix police officer Aimee Smith conspired with an agent from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to "wrongfully and maliciously prosecute" him."

What’s missing from the “black agenda”: "I mean, a black man who wants to defend himself with a firearm? Just who does Otis McDonald think he is? He’s part of a long line of blacks who’ve done precisely that throughout American history, the early gun-control laws targeting blacks specifically notwithstanding. Robert F. Williams and other blacks did it in Monroe, N.C. in the late 1950s and early 1960s against marauding Klansmen. The Deacons for Defense and Justice did it in Louisiana in the 1960s. … Armed self-defense was a cherished African-American tradition — until we became Democrats. But brothers like McDonald know one thing: Well-meaning Democrats can’t stop the thug invading your home. But a Smith and Wesson can.”
