News- Some Pennsylvania Universities will allow guns on campus after lawyers said that school regulations won’t withstand constitutional challenges.  Some Universities refused to change their no-gun policy.  More money for lawyers.

-Update to NYC gun grab story from the weekend show.
It appears we, along with countless others (including Mississippi Gun News), may well have been “had” regarding yesterday’s item about the “NYC Gun Grab“!

A poster on the Forums.Officer.com apparently did some digging and it seems the letter was only sent to one person, for reasons involving his specific permit. The letter was then supposedly altered to appear as something different. It had been accepted that parts of that letter had been officially redacted. Our thanks to a JPFO member who found this and notified us about it.

-Colorado Sheriff Lou Vallario continues his case against Colorado’s new gunlaws as an individual after a federal district court judge said the joint action from the states 54 sheriff’s did not have standing.

-A Federal District Court denies the challenge from a firearms manufacturing group challenging Connecticut gun laws.  The manufacturing group challen because the laws were passed without following the published rules of governing Connecticut legislation.

-The next story is from Listener “Chin”
Big shock, a study by the congressional research service report what we have been saying all along. More guns really do mean less crime.  I’m glad they have finally figured out the facts.

Tom- DGU1
November 29th, a Memphis homeowner called police to report that two men were trying to break into his home. However, before officers could respond, the men were coming into the home through a window. The homeowner took action to protect himself. He fired at the two men, who then immediately fled the scene. One of the men was found by police a block away, suffering from a gunshot wound.  He was transported to an area hospital where he remains in critical condition.

Paul- DGU2

It’s usually easier to defend yourself and your family from a threat if you already have a gun.  However, a Louisiana family still managed to defend themselves using their assailant’s own gun against him.  According to The Daily World, a suspect armed with a handgun and wearing a ski mask, entered a Ville Platte, LA home on Sunday.  The armed suspect confronted a male visitor to the home, held a gun to his head and demanded money.  The residents of the home refused. That’s when the suspect tried to execute his hostage. Fortunately, for some reason, the gun did not fire and a fight ensued.  The suspect was shot in the chest.
