A property owner who opened fire on a suspected burglar is in jail tonight, facing felony charges for assaulting the burglar, who is being treated for two non life threatening gunshot wounds.
Miodrag Bugarcic owns a warehouse in Cleveland. The warehouse has long been the target of thieves looking to steel various scrap metals such as wires and pipes.
Last week, Bugarcic arrived at the Warehouse to find someone inside, cutting wires. Bugarcic allegedly opened fire on the suspect, who fled. Bugarcic then, also allegedly, opened fire on the suspect as he fled.
Bugarcic claimed that the suspected burglar came towards him armed with a pipe.
The gun Bugarcic used in this incident was a .22LR bolt action rifle. Not an ideal self defense gun, right? Well, it turns out Bugarcic’s other firearms are currently in a police evidence locker, because this isn’t the first time he has had to…

” Calguns Foundation has issued data projecting the number of concealed carry permits that the state would have to issue in the first year if the state is forced to adopt a “shall issue” permit as a result of the decision in Peruta v. San Diego (PDF).
Based upon the percentage of the population that decided to apply for a permit, and extrapolating from existing permitting data, Calguns Foundation suggests that from between 292,342 to 1,461,709 Californians will receive concealed carry permits, figuring a 1%-5% application rate.”

Diabetes is a result of inadequate production of insulin by the islet cells in the pancreas. There may be a genetic predisposition for this in some dogs. Islet cell destruction also occurs in some cases of pancreatitis. Insulin enables glucose to pass into cells, where it is metabolized to produce energy for metabolism. Insulin deficiency results in hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) and glycosuria (high urine sugar).

I didn’t really know my Grandparents very well, I mean… I did lots of fun things with them but to sit and talk with them and get to really know them isn’t something I ever got to do. They both died in their early 60’s when I was barely 20. So I am left with home movies, still pictures of them and the stories I heard my mom and her siblings tell.
My mom, HastyMom, sent me this piece she wrote yesterday. Every time a friend or family member sends me something they wrote I feel like I am getting to see something new inside of them. This is a story my mom wrote about my Grandparents, a story she wanted to preserve.
The pictures are of my Grandparents.
When she was young and full of dreams she caught the eye of a Dr’s son. She was only 17 and…
