TN: Man shoots, kills would be home invader: "A North Memphis man is recovering after turning a gun on an attempted robbery suspect who knocked on his door shortly before 5:00 a.m. Saturday. Maggett, who is fighting throat cancer, said chemotherapy and radiation did not leave him too weak to fight off the would be robber. He said the suspect knocked on the door, pushed him over a chair and tried to choke him to death. Maggett then turned the gun on the suspect, shooting and killing him inside. "I guess the good Lord gave me strength to get him up off me so I got away from him," said Maggett. Maggett returned to his home from the hospital Saturday morning. Memphis police said no charges have been filed in this case."

NJ Governor Christie Shows his Anti-Gun-Owner Hand: "In a move that did not surprise New Jersey gun owners, Governor Chris Christie made it clear that he is no friend of the “right to keep and Bear Arms” (RKBA) in New Jersey. As revealed in an email from a spokesman for the governor, Christie has not changed his position since his 2009 campaign when he told The Record: “I believe that each state should have the right to make firearms laws as they see fit. I don’t believe it’s right for the federal government to get into the middle of this and decide firearms laws for the people of the state of New Jersey.” This in spite of the fact that the state’s entire NJ Republican delegation in the House voted for a bill that would grant National Reciprocity to any U.S. citizen who has a legitimate license to carry a discreet handgun in their home state for self-defense"

2nd Amendment says he's wrong. Story over.

Ever wonder why nobody stomps on the 1st Amendment like they do the 2nd?
