NV:  Man suffers bullet wound when stopping burglary attempt:  "A Las Vegas man used a handgun to prevent his apartment from being robbed, but he suffered a bullet wound to his left hand in the process, according to Metro Police.  Officials said the suspect was breaking into the apartment on Tamarus Street, near East Pebble Road, around 10 a.m. when the owner pulled out his gun. The two wrestled for the gun when the shot was fired, according to officials.  The suspect fled the scene on foot, according to reports, outrunning the police."

Florida judge revokes bond for Trayvon Martin killer:  "A Florida judge on Friday revoked bail for George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer charged with second-degree murder in the killing of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin, and ordered him to surrender within 48 hours.  The bail revocation came after prosecutors accused Zimmerman of withholding one of his two valid passports and said his wife did not tell the court about money donated for his legal defense.  Circuit Court Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. granted the prosecution motion to revoke the $150,000 bond Zimmerman put up in April to get out of jail while awaiting trial.  Zimmerman, 28, was given 48 hours to surrender to the Seminole County Sheriff.  Zimmerman's lawyer, Mark O'Mara, told Reuters after the hearing that he would request another bond hearing for Zimmerman after he complies with the order to surrender."

Communist logic:  "A report issued by the State Council Information Office of the People's Republic of China has included U.S. gun ownership among a list of  human rights violations, Law Enforcement Examiner Jim Kouri reported yesterday.  "The Human Rights Record of the United States in 2011" was published last Friday on the PRC’s Consulate General in New York website.  “The United States prioritizes the right to keep and bear arms over the protection of citizens' lives and personal security and exercises lax firearm possession control, causing rampant gun ownership,” the report claims. “The U.S. people hold between 35 percent and 50 percent of the world' s civilian-owned guns, with every 100 people having 90 guns [and] 47 percent of American adults reported that they had a gun.”  The conclusion that gun bans will result in enhanced protection of lives and personal security flies in the face of both the American and Chinese experience."
