KY: Delivery Driver Shoots Alleged Robber: "A shooting during an attempted robbery of a delivery driver Friday night sent one person to the hospital. It happened just before 10:00 p.m. at Fairmont Court and Lakeshore Drive in Lexington. Police said a Wing Zone delivery driver was making a run on Fairmont, when several men approached him as he got out of his car. The driver told officers one of the men showed a gun and demanded cash. That's when the driver said he fired a gun, that was legally stored in his vehicle, in an attempt to defend himself. The alleged robber shot was taken to UK Hospital. His name and condition have not been released. Police are still searching for three other men believed to be involved".

Suit challenges discretion in issuing gun permits: "The nationwide debate over liberalizing gun laws spilled into a federal courtroom in Sacramento on Thursday as gun-rights groups challenged how much discretion California's law enforcement officials have in issuing concealed weapons permits. Gun-rights advocates argued that county sheriffs, who handle most such permits, must issue them to anyone who completes a training course and has no mental health problems or criminal background. They are challenging a policy by Yolo County Sheriff Ed Prieto, who says applicants in his county northwest of Sacramento must prove they have a reason to carry a concealed weapon, such as a threat to their safety."
