NV: Two burglars shot: "Police say around 3:30am Friday, they were called to Virginia and Artemesia Streets, told of a man with several gunshot wounds. He was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries. Police say that man, Jonathan Rogers, is one of three men who broke into a home on Bartlett Street, on the other side of the UNR campus. They believe the homeowner shot Rogers, who ran through the campus and onto Virginia Street, where he collapsed. The second suspect, Guy Ruiz, also ran off, apparently not hurt, and is still on the loose. The third suspect, Robert Marin, was apparently held at gunpoint by the homeowner for several hours. Police say the homeowner was somehow injured over the course of the incident and was unable to call police or go for help. After several hours, the two men fought and the homeowner shot Marin, giving the homeowner a chance to call police. Rogers remains in an area hospital in critical condition, Ruiz is still on the loose, and Marin is being treated for his wound. The homeowner's name hasn't been released."

Mississippi Rep. fights for gun rights: "First District U.S. Rep. Alan Nunnelee is making his pro-gun rights message known by sponsoring five bills in Congress dealing with the Second Amendment. The bills include measures to ease interstate firearms business, reform gun control restrictions in Washington and make it easier to collect guns. "As a strong defender of the Second Amendment, I am pleased to co-sponsor these legislative measures that will remove unnecessary restrictions on firearms and eliminate harsh gun control laws. The right to bear arms is a fundamental right that is assured to every law abiding citizen, and as a member of Congress I will continue to fight for this right," Nunnelee said in a statement."
