PA: Federal Court rejects suit filed by woman who carried gun at soccer game: "A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by a Lebanon woman who openly carried a loaded handgun to a child’s soccer game in December 2008. The lawsuit brought by Meleanie Hain and her husband Scott sought $1 million in damages after Lebanon County Sheriff Michael DeLeo revoked her permit to carry a concealed firearm. A county judge later overturned the revocation and reinstated Hain’s permit.”

Was election a victory for gun owners?: "Republicans have taken the House. While Democrats retained the Senate, the balance of power is too close for them to steamroll anything through. Add to this mix "pro-gun" Democrats and Second Amendment-friendly leadership in both chambers (assuming Sen. Reid still feels he needs to be), and yesterday appears to have been a good day for gun owners. At the federal and state levels."

WA: Arizona Man Arrested After Guns Found in Truck: "U.S. Park Police say an Arizona man has been arrested after guns and ammunition were found inside a truck hauling a camper parked along the National Mall. The truck was parked along the National Mall near the National Air and Space Museum Wednesday afternoon, when an officer noticed something suspicious inside. A bomb disposal unit was called in. Sgt. David Schlosser says no explosives were found, but a handgun and more than one rifle were found inside. Schlosser says the unidentified man would be charged with unregistered ammunition and firearms offenses." ["unregistered" ammo?? And have the goons forgotten that guns are now allowed in National Parks?]
