Intruders invade a man's home and lock him in a closet, where he kept his gun. The resident then came out with his gun and shot one of the intruders in the leg.
"What happened today is exactly what guns are supposed to do - to protect your home and defend your life and your family."
Investigations are underway after the Justice Department secretly obtained months worth of phone records from the Associated Press.
The Justice Department secretly obtained two months of telephone records of reporters and editors for The Associated Press in what the news cooperative's top executive called a "massive and unprecedented intrusion" into how news organizations gather the news.
The records obtained by the Justice Department listed outgoing calls for the work and personal phone numbers of individual reporters, for general AP office numbers in New York, Washington and Hartford, Conn., and for the main number for the AP in the House of Representatives press gallery, according to attorneys for the AP. It was not clear if the records also included incoming calls or the duration of the calls.
In all, the government seized the records for more than 20 separate telephone lines assigned to AP and its journalists in April and May of 2012. The exact number of journalists who used the phone lines during that period is unknown, but more than 100 journalists work in the offices where phone records were targeted, on a wide array of stories about government and other matters.
The IRS is claiming that their targeted of Tea Party groups was just a "procedural error", funny how that "procedural error" didn't lead to any left-wing groups being harassed.
The Tea Party groups that the IRS went after were all sent letters of inquiry demanding chilling information. The IRS demanded lists of donors, names of spouses and family members, detailed information about political views and associations — all of that “under penalties of perjury.”
They told the Tea Party groups that they must supply the names of any political candidates that participated in public forums conducted by the groups along with copies of any literature distributed at the forum and material published on websites.
