FL: Shooter exonerated by jury: "Witnesses have testified that several brawls had broken out outside of the Riverfront Saloon in Leon County. Wilson took the stand on Tuesday. He said he got his gun from his truck after seeing his roommate fighting, tucked it in his waistband, and after taking three or four steps, he fell after Jones punched him in the head. Wilson says Jones straddled on top of him on the ground and was hitting him. Wilson says he pulled his gun out and shot Jones. Hobbs said, "Mr. Wilson is a very, very mild-mannered young man. He doesn't go looking for trouble. He's never been in trouble in his life. This was an aberration and I think that but for the fact that he was caught in a very violent situation, he would never had done what he did." Hobbs said in witness testimonies no one saw Wilson standing over Jones and says that Jones was the aggressor."

President can’t tell gun safety advocates from prohibitionists: "President Obama’s well-intentioned Sunday essay on gun rights in a Tucson newspaper demonstrates that he -- and probably his entire administration -- remains confused about firearms safety and gun control, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today. 'The president evidently can’t tell the difference between genuine gun safety advocates and gun prohibitionists,' said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb."
