Several suspects allegedly approached a home in Anchorage, Alaska, and pepper-sprayed the owner after he opened the door. They failed to count on the fact that the victim was armed, and he drew his gun and fired several shots in return. The suspects retreated and fled in their vehicle, and the homeowner met with no further harm.
Shortly afterward, a man checked into a nearby hospital with what KTVA describes as “a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to his backside.” Police are investigating to determine whether his injury is related to the home invasion.
MoveOn.Org Wants Money, Gun Owners To Fight NRA
We’ve already covered MoveOn.org’s attempt to counter NRA power by establishing a rival “grassroots” organization of “gun owners committed to fighting for gun control.” According to The Truth About Guns, the group is now hitting up members for money to support their pet gun owners’ foray to the White House and further recruiting efforts.
An email blast from MoveOn.org brags about the anti-gun group’s “32,260 members” and asks supporters, “Can you chip in $3 to help responsible gun owners stand up to the NRA?” They’ve got a long way to go before they can match the 25 bucks apiece of 5 million proud Second Amendment supporters.
Bill Seeks To Defend Wisconsin Hunters From Harassment
An extreme animal-rights group known as Wolf Patrol has reportedly been stalking and filming hunters in Wisconsin, a harassment campaign ostensibly in support of the group’s mission to protect wolves and ban hunting with dogs. Now Wisconsin Public Radio reports that State Rep. Adam Jarchow, R-Balsam Lake, has introduced a bill prohibiting individuals from following and recording hunters in the state.
“If you don’t like hunting or you disagree with the tactics … protest. Write letters. Go on TV,” said Rep. Jarchow. “Do whatever you want to do, but do not go out in the woods and intentionally follow hunters around and harass hunters. Because not only is it obnoxious, it’s actually really dangerous.”
