Jeff at Alphecca has a story & link up y'all should check out.
It's about an elderly man named Lester Campbell who was mugged in NYC. He pulled a gun, fired a shot & more or less came away unharmed (except for the cash that was stolen). But being NYC he now faces charges for having two unlicensed firearms. They took the one he used & another one in his home.
Kevin of The Smallest Minority has a more detailed account of what happened.
Dave at Pervasive Light has set up a defense fund for the gentleman in question.
Y'all do what you can.
