TX: CBS Photog Packs Heat, Shoots Robber: "Jay Johnson. Remember the name, because he is not a man to be toyed with. Seems Mr. Johnson, also a CBS 11 photographer, was playing poker in Mesquite when a man came in wanting to join in the game. The gentlemen at the table declined, so this man pulled a gun, shot one of the players, and demanded everyone’s money. Then Johnson shot him dead. The police have pretty much determined it’s self defense, and Johnson had a concealed handgun permit."

AL: Armed Man Breaks In Apartment, Meets Gunfire: "Florence Police have an active search along Helton Drive for a man who allegedly broke in an apartment and was then shot at. He quickly ran away. Police responded to the Four Seasons Apartments at 11:45 a.m. Thursday. They say the man, who was armed, broke into an apartment in building H. However, the person who lives there quickly grabbed a gun and shot at the intruder three times. Police don't believe any of the bullets hit the man, though. He ran away. The suspect, a white male, was wearing all black. He was about 6'5" and weighed approximately 250 pounds, according to police."

OH: Man returns fire: "A group of unknown individuals fired shots at a man walking on Mount Vernon Avenue late Saturday night.

Stupid Scottish gun laws: "A grandmother has been jailed for five years for possessing a ‘family heirloom’ World War II pistol. Gail Cochrane, 53, had kept the gun for 29 years following the death of her father, who had been in the Royal Navy. Police found the weapon, a Browning self-loading pistol, during a search of her home in Dundee while looking for her son. She admitted illegal possession of the firearm, an offence with a minimum five-year jail term under Scots law.”
