TN: Female thief shot: "A woman was shot in the head after she and two other suspects stole a female victim's purse and beat her up. It happened around 3:30 or 4:00 a.m. on Saturday at the Trinity Lakes Apartments in Cordova. Police said 25-year-old Maria Fugitt was followed home from work early Saturday morning. When she pulled up in her parking lot, the three women who were following her got out of their car with a gun and demanded money. They allegedly took $240, Fugitt's purse and backpack. But Fugitt didn't give up without a fight. She called for her boyfriend, who came outside. Police said that as the suspects drove off, one of them pointed a pistol out the window at both victims. Police said the boyfriend, 34-year-old Michael Ray, then fired one shot at the robbers' car, shattering the rear window. The suspects sped off. Later, one of the suspects, 20-year-old Amber Jackson, allegedly called police saying her friend was shot in the head. Harrison was treated at The MED, then released to be booked in jail."

Legal Action Wins Court Order Forcing LAPD to Make CCW Policies Available: "On Thursday, June 9, 2011, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Terry Green granted a motion in the NRA and CRPA Foundation financed case against the City of Los Angeles regarding the LAPD’s concealed weapons permit (CCW) processing and issuance policies. The motion was brought to force LAPD to comply with a 16-year-old Consent Judgment from the 1995 Assenza v. City of Los Angeles case. For years, LAPD has repeatedly sought to avoid its obligations under the judgment and to keep people in the dark about what it takes to get a CCW in the City of L.A. The City unsuccessfully opposed the motion. Under Penal Code § 12050, the LAPD has an obligation to process applications for CCWs, and to issue CCWs if the applicant has “good cause.” For many years, the City and the LAPD had a policy of not making CCW applications available, never finding good cause to exist, and effectively prohibiting the issuance of any CCWs."
