TN: Father shoots violent son in self-defense: "A man is shot and killed in Meigs County, and authorities say his father pulled the trigger, but that father does not face charges in the death. Investigators with the Meigs County Sheriff's Office won't say exactly what led up to the incident inside the father's home. But we do know that while he admitted to shooting his son, he hasn't been charged. His family says it's because he was only trying to protect himself from his violent son. Around 6:30 Friday evening, officers responded to the scene and found the victim, 28 year old Jason Morrow. "Victim on floor in kitchen, he had sustained a gunshot wound in left side of his chest." Detective Keith Kile says Morrow was rushed to the hospital where he later died." While officers won't say what led to the violence, his family told us that Jason had a drug problem."

Gun control is hitting what you’re aiming at: "If you have ever wanted a great ‘one-liner’ to roll off your tongue when you are in a friendly but competitive debate with someone who is less than ‘pro-gun,’ then you will love this report. … Here is my list of favorites: An armed man is a Citizen. An unarmed man is a subject. A gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone. Gun Control is not about guns; it’s about control. If guns cause crime, then cameras cause pornography. Free Men should not have to ask permission to bear arms. If you don’t know your Rights you don’t have any.”

Open carry — individual sovereignty: "Periodically, I encounter individuals who express the idea that you can somehow have a society which is free, while at the same time safe, antiseptic, and womb-like. In particular, certain kinds of conservatives are fond of saying things like, ‘I don’t have any problem with people [committing some socially unacceptable act] in their homes, but they ought to keep it to themselves.’ But it is specifically the public expression of our rights which tests whether or not we are, in fact, free.”
