Pa.: Shootout At Delco Dollar Store: "A botched robbery led to a shooting at a dollar store in Wallingford, Pa., on Thursday. The incident happened on Thursday afternoon at a Delaware County strip mall on South Chester Road. The alleged robber entered the store and was confronted by employee, with the robber and victim struggling over a gun. Both people were shot in the incident, with the man who is allegedly the robber seriously wounded."

Law-abiding folks can't win in NYC: "A leader of a tea party group was arrested after he took a gun to LaGuardia Airport. Tea Party Patriots co-founder Mark Meckler was taken into custody Thursday morning after he tried to check in for a Delta flight to Detroit with a locked gun box containing a Glock pistol and 19 cartridges of ammunition, Queens prosecutors said. Meckler, 49, declared the weapon, as required, authorities said. He's licensed to carry the gun in Grass Valley, Calif., where he lives, but that license isn't valid in New York, which has strict rules on carrying concealed weapons, they said. Meckler spent the day in jail and was arraigned in Queens late Friday afternoon on a felony weapons possession charge. He was released pending a Jan. 12 court date. The charge could carry prison time, but travelers who are arrested in such cases and appear to be trying to comply with the law typically pay fines."
