OH: Suspect shot twice in home invasion: "Police are investigating after a home invasion and robbery resulted in a person being shot twice in the back Sunday afternoon. Police say a man tried to break into a home in the 4000 block of Haverstraw Drive around 4 p.m. this afternoon. When the residents wouldn't let him in, police say he went to the back of the home and broke a window. A fight ensued with the residents, who then shot the suspect twice. He was transported to Bethesda North where he is listed in stable condition. Police are calling the home invasion and burglary a domestic dispute."

Ohio: Man Fires Shot At Intruder: "A homeowner points and fires a gun at a man who was trying to break inside his home overnight in Delhi Township. The homeowner says he wasn’t taking any chances. Police say he fired his gun as the suspect tried to break-in to his home in the 4400 block of Hillside Avenue around 1 a.m. Monday. It appears the suspect targeted the home, which is located on top of a hill on a secluded lot near the intersection of Riverside and Anderson Ferry Roads. Police did search the area with the help of K-9’s, but could not find the suspect. It does not appear the suspect was shot."

Justices lean to extending gun owner’s rights: "During spirited arguments Tuesday, the Supreme Court appeared ready to rule that the Second Amendment right to bear arms covers gun regulations in states and cities. Several key justices, including Anthony Kennedy, signaled they believe the right to firearms is sufficiently ‘fundamental’ that it should cover people challenging state and local gun laws, as well as federal laws.”

Will SCOTUS recognize truth about Chicago handgun ban? : "In the 2008 Heller decision, the Supreme Court struck down Washington, D.C.’s handgun ban and gunlock requirements. Unsurprisingly, gun control advocates predicted disaster. They were wrong. What actually happened in our nation’s capital after the Heller decision ought to be remembered tomorrow as the Supreme Court hears a similar constitutional challenge to the Chicago handgun ban. … Armageddon never arrived. Quite the contrary, murders in Washington plummeted by an astounding 25 percent in 2009, dropping from 186 murders in 2008 to 140. That translates to a murder rate that is now down to 23.5 per 100,000 people, Washinton’s lowest since 1967.”
