AR: Suspect shot during attempted robbery of restaurant: "An off-duty police officer shot one of two men who were attempting to rob a Jonesboro restaurant early Monday, police said. Patrolman Bobby Duff of the Arkansas State University Police Department and his girlfriend were the only customers in the International House of Pancakes, 2411 South Caraway Road, when the masked intruders entered the restaurant shortly after 4 a.m., Jonesboro police reported. One man, armed with a semiautomatic pistol, pointed the gun at the store manager, demanding that she open the cash register, Duff said. The second man, armed with a bat, saw the customers, pointed the bat at them and ordered them to drop their cell phones, put their hands up and get on the floor. “Duff stated that he then raised his weapon, fired two rounds, hitting the subject with the bat. “He then turned toward the subject with the pistol pointed at the manager, fired a third round"

Do you lose your rights when you fly?: "Hand grenades? Come on. Most reasonable people would agree it’s wise for the federal government to impose rules against carrying certain things, like explosives, aboard an airplane. But what about a weapon for personal protection? If a terrorist sneaks a box-cutter onto a plane, wouldn’t you want to have your handgun handy?”

Chicago defends disarmament while neighborhood violence unchecked: "While the City of Chicago is currently in federal court stubbornly defending its new gun ordinance, data reveals that the city’s United Center Park is the most dangerous neighborhood in the country, a situation that reeks of hypocrisy, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today. ‘The city’s new gun ordinance is deliberately designed to discourage citizens from obtaining handguns for personal protection,’ noted CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb.”
