"Samir Rathod was robbed at gunpoint by two masked robbers last night. As thieves made off with his cash they fired through the door. Rathod says a bullet just grazed him ..."

"It was at that point Rathod took matters into his own hands. Police report he shot at the suspects as they ran through the parking lot."

"'I was trying to just scare them,' said Rathod."

"Rathod hit 17 year old Exzavia Gaston in the back. Gaston is recovering and is not facing charges. But police did arrest a 16 year old. He is charged with armed robbery." ...

"Rathod is not facing any charges. By law people can argue self defense when they show evidence that they believe using force against someone is necessary in order to avoid a serious injury or death."

"He fumbled for bullets sitting on a shelf."

"The suspect returned before he could load, so Harry slammed the bolt home and aimed the empty weapon at the intruder."

"'He yelled out, 'Let's go, he's got a gun!' Harry said." ...

"Melissa O'Connell will be the first to tell you she's the exception, not the rule."

"Among women who become victims of violent crime she is an anomaly. Three years after waking up around midnight with a masked male intruder on top of her, shining a flashlight in her eyes and holding a gun and preparing to rape her, O'Connell is alive to talk about it."

"The serial rapist, who had gained entry into her house that July evening through a window or the sliding glass door, is dead."

"Rep. Baxley is a very smart politician. He understands his base of support, and his gun stances are red meat fed to the masses hungry for their public agenda."

"'It was our conclusion there was no way we could prove, one, that this was a knowing discharge of a weapon ... And he was lawfully in possession of the weapon. Also, there was no way we could overcome a self-defense claim,' [Deputy Lane County District Attorney Erik] Hasselman said." ...

"Illegal guns come from a variety of sources. In some cases, residents of states where it's easy to buy several guns at a time — and no records of the purchase are kept — act as 'straw purchasers' who buy guns for people from more gun-restrictive states such as New York."

"But authorities say about 75 percent of the illegal guns seized by Rochester police each year are traced back to New York residents who either lost them or reported them stolen." [emphasis added] ...

"Washington, D.C.’s murder rate escalated 300 percent in the 15 years following this damnable 1976 handgun ban. Yet, what are defenseless and common class crime victims to these political elitists of the Washington Post rag? After all, their elitist butts are probably protected 24/7 by armed bodyguards via taxpayers’ expense. And in an urban jungle where the democratic political machine maintains oppressive Mafia-style control, and is operated by political gangsters." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

The state Department of Public Safety has completed new rules mandated by changes in New Mexico’s concealed-carry handgun law. The rules will take effect Nov. 30.

The law’s amendments, which went into effect this summer, lowered the age for a concealed carry permit from 25 to 21 and extended the license period from two years to four with the requirement for refresher firearms training after two years.

The measure also lets people carry smaller-caliber handguns than provided for by their initial license. Licenses previously were issued for just one caliber.

In addition, New Mexico now recognizes concealed-carry licenses issued by 20 other states that have similar requirements.

"For the past 20 years, the number of hunters in New York has gradually been declining, said Gerry Barnhart, who heads state Department of Environmental Conservation's division of Wildlife, Fish and Marine Resources. The agency estimates that by 2010 there will not be enough hunters to control the state's deer population, unless the remaining hunters killed more deer." ...

"My wife pointed the business end of a 20-gauge Browning over-and-under at the pupil of my left eye. The twin muzzles of the shotgun were so close I could smell the cleaning oil. I squinted at the tiny silver sighting bead mounted on the rib above the top barrel. Then I sucked a long hard breath, all of a sudden feeling weak-kneed and squirmy." ...

"... The proprietor ... was huddled over Alison's shoulders, helping her aim the Browning at my eyeball."

"'We know this gun is empty,' Richie assured, gripping my wife's elbows. 'Burn your eyes over the rib.'"

"He couldn't be in two places at once, so it was up to me to report back on Alison's eyeball to see if it was on top of the barrel, thus breaking the first rule of guns - never point one at another person, loaded or unloaded." ...
