PA 'Castle Doctrine' debate rhetoric sounds familiar

"Pacific Northwest gun rights activists should feel better this morning because they are not the only firearms owners plagued by boneheads working from the same gun prohibitionist playbook...

"...Washingtonians – including those who don’t own firearms – reap something of a residual benefit from the fact that we’re not in the same fix as Pennsylvanians. Just the potential that a homeowner might be armed stands as a deterrent, though it is not always foolproof."

Russia to Refund Iran for Canceled Missile Deal

Russian officials say the country plans to reimburse Iran, after Moscow canceled the sale of an air defense missile system to Tehran. The announcement comes as the Russian president is on a one-day state visit to Cyprus.

In the scope of a $800 million contract brokered in 2005, Russia was obliged to send Iran at least five S-300 missile systems.

But last month, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev banned the sale of the missile systems following United Nations sanctions against such arms sales.

The U.N. imposed the sanctions in June for Iran's refusal to stop enriching uranium.
