FL: Homeowner shot would-be teen burglar: "Miami-Dade police say the homeowner confronted a potential burglar Monday afternoon by shooting him twice sending the juvenile to the hospital. The teen was shot in the leg and was taken to Miami Children's Hospital. The teen is expected to survive. Police say the events that led to the shooting began shortly before 2 p.m. on the 26200 block of Southwest 128th Court in Cutler Bay. That's when the homeowner heard a noise and armed himself with a gun. He was confronted by two juveniles and told police that he feared for his life and opened fire twice, striking one of the two male teens. Police say they were able to arrest all three suspected burglars. One of the juveniles, police said, was not within earshot of the homeowner because he was serving as a lookout."

SAF Sues Eric Holder, FBI Over Misdemeanor Gun Rights Denial: "Acting on behalf of a Georgia resident and honorably discharged Vietnam War veteran, the Second Amendment Foundation today filed a lawsuit against Attorney General Eric Holder and the Federal Bureau of Investigation over enforcement of a federal statute that can deny gun rights to someone with a simple misdemeanor conviction on his record. In July 1968, Schrader, then 21, was found guilty of misdemeanor assault and battery relating to a fight involving a man who had previously assaulted him in Annapolis, MD. The altercation was observed by a police officer, who arrested Schrader, then an enlisted man in the Navy, stationed in Annapolis. The man he fought with was in a street gang that had attacked him for entering their "territory," according to the complaint."
