TX: Man kills invader in SE Houston home: "A man shot and killed an alleged invader who entered a southeast Houston home and held him and others at gunpoint Sunday morning, authorities said. Witnesses told police an unidentified 22-year-old man came to the residence in the 1900 block of Richvale around 9:40 a.m. to confront a man in the home and others about a earlier disturbance, of which the nature is unknown, said Houston Police Department spokesman John Cannon. The man also assaulted the people with the gun, Cannon said. At one point, the man whom the suspect came to confront pulled out his own gun, shooting and killing the suspect, Cannon said. The dead man's identity is pending an autopsy. No charges have been filed at this time."

Canada: Home invader shot by elderly intended victim: "Police say that an intruder attempted to break in through a window of a Colton, Ontario home. The 79 year old homeowner is said to have noticed the home invasion attempt, grabbed his handgun, and fired in self defense, striking the intruder in the shoulder and ending the attack. A dead suspect, reportedly identified as 37 year old Fidel Escanuelas was found at the scene, and two suspected accomplices were taken into custody. No injures to the elderly resident were reported."

The Utah loophole: "You can get a license to carry a concealed weapon without ever having to shoot a gun. The reason—a growing number of instructors offer Texas students a chance to get a Utah concealed handgun license. Concealed carry permits from Utah are popular and legal in Texas and it’s not hard to see why. Utah requires less than half the class time, has not written test, requires no live shooting and you don’t even have to leave Texas to get one. “With the Utah program I’m able to concentrate 100% of my time and focus on the 20% of the core materials that people need to know of the day-to-day of carrying a handgun,” said Brad Brasuell a certified Utah instructor."
