DALLAS -- An Irving man said he was forced to defend himself against two men who broke into his apartment Tuesday. The man told police when the attackers pulled a gun, he pulled out his Samurai sword.

Investigators said a visitor to an apartment was on the terrace when he was approached by two men.

One of the men pulled out a handgun and forced the man into the apartment and attempted a robbery, police said. When they didn't get any money, they allegedly pistol whiped the man an knocked him to the ground.

The apartment's tenant heard the noise and ran in from a back room.

Officers said the tenant used a Samurai sword and 10-inch knives as weapons, while one of the suspects fired several gunshots.

Police said all four men were injured from fighting with deadly weapons.

One of the suspects, a 20-year-old Dallas man, suffered severe lacerations and stab wounds to his neck and upper body, and is clinging to life, police said.

I won't start a new thread for it but speaking of swords (http://www.mlive.com/newsflash/business/index.ssf?/base/news-20/1098987565247460.xml&storylist=mibusiness).
DETROIT (AP) — A metals plant employee killed a co-worker with a sword he fashioned for himself at the factory, police said Thursday. The 30-year-old Detroit resident was in custody after the slaying, which occurred at approximately 11:25 p.m. Wednesday, police spokesman James Tate said.

Witnesses told police the man complained he was being bullied by another employee at the factory, Peerless Metals, which makes metal powders used in brakes.

He then finished a sword that he had been working on for several days, Tate said. When he returned, he struck the 40-year-old victim with the sword in the neck area, nearly decapitating him.

The suspect fled the scene but later returned. When police arrived, he was waiting there, drinking a beer.

Witnesses told the police the suspect was interested in "fantasy board games."

Edit: When I visited the link that had the story, an advertisement appeared. The advertisement was funny because it said, "Sick of the spin? Click here to get the facts about Bush." But then, directly under that, it said, "Paid for by the Democratic National Committee."

Yeah, no spin.

Hmmm. . .
Like they say - it's not the weapon, it's the user.
