    MILWAUKEE -- A Milwaukee mother woke up Thursday morning to find an intruder in her house, but she was more than equipped to defend herself, her children and her little brother. The man went through a window into the woman's house. Her first instinct, she told 12 News, on hearing the breaking glass downstairs at the front door was to call 911, which she did. However, with her young son and teenage brother downstairs, she decided she couldn't wait and had to take things into her own hands. At 6 a.m., she was awakened by the sound of broken glass,...

    Posters note: This has been rectified (see last item at the bottom), but it still serves as a lesson on how far some people will go in the name of making us "safe" from guns. Looks like civilians aren't the only ones being disarmed in the Katrina disaster area. An old Philadelphia acquaintance of mine who serves in a leadership position in a National Guard infantry company, deployed to Bogalusa, Louisiana, on security missions in support of Hurricane Katrina operations, sends along a plea for self-defense help: We fall under Task Force Santa Fe, commanded by GEN Mason, commanding general...

    Tonight is the fourth night of Armed Jews Week, or as it is more popularly known, Hanukkah.  Hanukkah is an eight-day celebration of the Jewish revolution against Syria in the second century B.C.  The Syrian government (a remnant of Alexander the Great’s empire) attempted to wipe out the Jewish religion by forcing the Jews to conform to Greek culture.  Some of them refused, and a tiny militia, led by Judah the Maccabee (“the hammer”) began a guerilla war. The Jewish militia grew in force, and repeatedly destroyed much larger Syrian armies which were sent to smash the revolution.  Syria’s King...

    Washington, D.C. homeowners shouldn’t expect to lock and load anytime soon as an effort to repeal a nearly 30-year ban on handgun ownership (search) in the district has hit a snag despite Republican gains in the U.S. Senate that might draw more gun-friendly lawmakers to Capitol Hill. "It still has an improved chance," said Dan Whiting, spokesman for Republican Sen. Larry Craig (search) of Idaho, who had co-sponsored legislation to repeal the gun ban and had hoped to attach the measure to the 2005 D.C appropriations bill. But opponents of the gun ban say D.C. residents are wary of turning...
