    RICHMOND, Va. -- A pizza delivery driver shot and wounded a stun-gun wielding man who had tried to rob him early today, Richmond police said. Police responded about 2:16 a.m. to a shooting in the 00 block of East Broad Street, officials said in a news release. After officers arrived, they learned that the victim had been shot after he tried to rob the pizza delivery driver, who fired in self-defense. The driver, 33, was not injured. Michael T. Caballero, 19, who police said had no fixed address, was charged with robbery and two counts of possession of drugs with...
  • Police: Craigslist robbery goes awry as buyer, seller come armed(MD)

    06/20/2012 5:36:06 AM PDT · by marktwain · 59 replies ^ | 19 June, 2012 | Peter Hermann
    The couple in search of a car found the sedan they wanted for sale on Craigslist for $4,000. They arranged a meeting Monday night on a street in Bolton Hill lined with 19th-century rowhouses. But Baltimore police said both the seller and the buyer took guns to the transaction. And when one of the men who posted the ad drew his weapon and demanded money from the prospective buyer, police said his female acquaintance pulled her own gun and fired into the air. The gunman dropped his weapon on Bolton Street and the woman gave chase, "firing her weapon numerous...

    Liberterian News Examiner ^ | 15 June, 2012 | Garry Reed
    From time to time the Libertarian News Examiner receives Editorial Ideas to write about. A recent one was "Gun Violence." "According to a National Institute of Justice survey," this Editorial Idea declared, "gun fatalities have steadily risen every year since 2002." While lots of statistics and examples were thrown around by this Editorial Idea no definition of gun violence was offered. Words like homicide, murder and attacks were used but there was no mention of people defending themselves from attempted homicide, murder or attacks. The obviously intended insinuation is that every instance of gun usage is an act of "gun...

    June 19, 2012 MEDIA MISREPORTING BOEHNER'S FAST & FURIOUS STANCE Mary Chastain Once again the media is reporting supposed facts about Speaker John Boehner without actually confirming them. This time Fox News’s William La Jeunesse states Speaker Boehner is putting pressure on Chairman Darrell Issa to drop contempt charges against Attorney General Eric Holder in relation to the ongoing investigation of Operation Fast and Furious.  This is not true. Speaker Boehner’s spokesman Michael Steel confirmed it for me once again.“The Speaker supports Chairman Issa’s efforts to hold the Department of Justice accountable,” Mr. Steel wrote in an email.Over and over...

    Sean Combs, the Troy 18-year-old who was arrested in April after he was found carrying a loaded rifle in downtown Birmingham, will be back in court Wednesday for a hearing to determine whether charges of brandishing a firearm, disturbing the peace and obstructing an officer will move forward or be dismissed. Combs was arrested around 10 p.m. April 13 after he refused to show police officers his identification after they asked about the M1 Garande rifle strapped to his back, according to police reports. The rifle was loaded with one round in the chamber, police say. As an adult under...
  • Opinion: Police Gun Buy-Back Is a Raw Deal(IL Chicago)

    The Chicago Police Department wants your guns, and its willing to pay for them. On the first summer Saturday of a year when homicides are up 60 percent, the department is holding a gun buy-back program. Titled Dont Kill A Dream: Save A Life, the program offers $100 pre-paid Visa debit cards for every gun turned in. For bringing in a BB gun or a toy gun, you get $10. Its going on from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the following locations. Im all in favor of getting guns off the street, but $100 is not a good deal,...

    The meeting between Attorney General Eric Holder and Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa has ended after 20 minutes of discussion. Holder came with an offer of a briefing on Fast and Furious documents, but did not physically turn over any documents. This is unsatisfactory to Issa who has said repeatedly that in order for Holder to avoid a contempt vote Wednesday at 10 AM, he must hand over 1300 Fast and Furious documents to the committee. "The documents they may choose to give in the future, we need before tomorrow," Issa said to reporters. "Ultimately the documents...

    This past Saturday, the anachronistic and increasingly irrelevant Reverend Jesse Jackson called for an anti-violence rally against 25 gun ranges in the United States. Despite his personal indiscretions, he somehow felt justified to ask dads during Fathers Day Weekend all across our great nation to adopt his mantra of Guns Out = Jobs In. According to the puzzling logic of Jackson, the local communities where the targeted gun shops operate are stifling the creation of jobs, which if you believe Jackson, is the root cause of urban violence. Somehow, Jackson manages to ignore the fact that these gun ranges...

    Attorney General Eric Holder will meet with Fast and Furious nemesis Congressman Darrell Issa at 5:00 this afternoon in what could mark the end of the Congressional investigation of Barack Obamas deadly gun smuggling scheme. Last week, House Republican leaders at last agreed to schedule a vote on the Contempt of Congress charge Issa has long sought to bring against the Attorney General for 8 months of refusing to honor Congressional subpoenas. Deputy Attorney General James Cole quickly responded with a letter to House Government Reform Committee chair Issa, requesting a meeting to discuss ways of avoiding the vote. Issa...

    BIRMINGHAM, Alabama -- A 19-year-old home-invasion suspect who escaped while being released from the hospital Sunday was captured early today, still wearing his handcuffs and hospital gown. Deandre Miles, shot in the chest in Pinson Friday, was captured about 1 a.m., but not without incident. Authorities said when his mother brought him to meet with lawmen, he tried to push her out of the car, and then run over two deputies. He was subdued, and now is in the county jail. Jefferson County sheriff's Chief Deputy Randy Christian said deputies and U.S. Marshals met with Miles' mother about midnight Sunday,...

    Ohio --( By a 59 28 margin, the Ohio House has passed House Bill 495, sponsored by Representative Terry Johnson (R-McDermott), which will reform Ohio concealed carry law to protect the rights of law-abiding gun owners and continue a trend toward making Ohio law similar to other states. HB495 makes three changes to current law: * Changes to automatically honor other states licenses, similar to a drivers license * Eliminates the demonstrated competency requirement for 2nd and future CHL renewals, making CHL training similar to a hunting license * Fixes the definition of a loaded gun to match the...

    As your sheriff, I am writing this open letter to the citizens of Hamilton County. In recent days, I have been taking a lot of heat from some in the print media regarding my stand on commission cards, special deputies and the Sheriffs Posse. I normally refrain from commenting publicly about such articles, because I realize everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Also, as an elected individual, I know I am fair game. This time, however; I feel I need to defend this matter more vigorously. Unfortunately, there are those in our community who strongly oppose our Second Amendment...

    It sounds like something from a futuristic thriller: police pick up spent bullet shells, find a tiny code on them that reveals what gun they were shot from and then use the ID to track down the killer. The technology to do this, called microstamping, is actually available today, but whats stopping it from being used and many criminals from being caught is politics. There are battles raging across the U.S. over microstamping, with supporters of the new technology squaring off against the gun lobby, which is strongly opposed. It is hard to see why the critics are...
