GA: Callgirl shoots robbers: "Investigators say the three teens had lured the woman to a driveway on George Coggin Road that belonged to one of their neighbors. They say Berggren hid behind bushes at the end of the driveway and surprised the woman as she talked with the teenage girls. Investigators say McAlkich’s plan worked so well once, the three decided to try it again. But the next escort to arrive on George Coggin Road was carrying a gun, and during the robbery shot Berggren in the stomach. Maj. Yarborough says it’s possible that word had gotten back to the other escorts in the same business, and that the new victim was prepared for what might happen. He said in the case of the second victim, it looks like the shooting was a case of self defense."

AZ: Homeowner turns tables on burglar: "While sitting on the couch Tuesday morning, Willy John heard his pet chihuahua start barking. The 65-year-old got up, and in the bedroom of his central Phoenix home, he came face to face with a burglar. ... Willy grabbed a gun hidden underneath his bed at the home near 48th Street and Thomas Road, and ordered the burglar to the floor."

IN: Knife-wielding intruder shot by woman: "Jennings County Prosecutor Alan Marshall ruled that a woman who shot a 45-year-old man last week did so in self-defense. On Aug. 9, sheriff’s deputies were called to a home on Road 225S in response to a violent domestic dispute. Deputies found several broken windows and kicked-in doors at the home. They also found a man on the floor of the bathroom suffering from a gunshot wound to the stomach with another person restraining him. A press release from Marshall’s office on Wednesday stated investigators determined that the man had tried to attack a 29-year-old woman with a knife. The woman shot the man in the stomach with a .22-caliber revolver, according to the release. Marshall said the man broke down several doors and windows trying to get to the woman, all while armed with a knife. The woman had a reasonable belief that she was in danger of serious bodily injury or death. The man remains hospitalized, according to the prosecutor’s office."

Anti-gun gunowners: " writer Maggie Haberman missed the mark when she noted that Perry has a concealed carry permit by assuming he must be pro-gun because he has a concealed weapon permit. Senator Barbara Boxer has a permit to carry. Do you think California Democrat Senator Barbara Boxer is pro-gun? No, I don’t think so, either. But Barbara Boxer used her influence to secure an elusive concealed carry permit from California. Or how about New York Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer? Schumer himself is reported to possess a New York concealed handgun permit, and both U.S. Senators regularly employed armed guards for their personal protection. Just because a politician recognizes that being armed makes THEM safer, doesn’t mean they support YOUR right to keep and bear arms. They think they’re different than you and me, that because of their title they’re entitled to MORE rights than we are."
