... "Carl Kesser, 58, said he was shot in the head without provocation by an unidentified officer from 30 to 50 feet away while filming protests from the sidewalk. Kesser said he had to undergo three hours of surgery to remove the projectile, has permanent paralysis on the right side of his forehead, and cannot open his mouth fully."

"'I really don't understand why they're nonlethal,' he said in a telephone interview. 'They're definitely lethal. An inch to the left, and I would have lost my eye. An inch to the right, and I would have lost my ear. And an inch above, I would have been dead.'" ...

"The Bill of Rights is moribund in today's America because in the view of many powerful people it should never have been born." ...

"It is sanctified by words during the best of times, when it is not needed; It is ignored by deeds during the worst of times, when it is needed most; It is presented as the bedrock of American freedom; It is in reality as fragile as a pane of glass; It is praised when one requires its protections; It is scourged when one's foe demands those same protections; It is promoted as a vibrant, living document; It is dying a slow, but certain, death." ...

"The stories are sad tales in the hunting world. Hunter goes out with a gun that's been sitting around the garage all spring and summer. Hunter doesn't clean gun. Hunter doesn't sight in gun to make sure it's accurate. Hunter doesn't practice. Hunter sees buck of a lifetime, aims, fires ... and misses badly."

"Or the gun jams. Or it misfires. Either way, the opportunity of a lifetime is wasted, all because he tried to take the easy way."

"'I hear those stories every day,' says Will Burke of Mark's Outdoors in Vestavia Hills. 'The gun hasn't been shot since last season and they just expect to go out and hit exactly where they hit last year ...'" ...

"Summary: The number of pirate attacks worldwide has tripled in the past decade, and new evidence suggests that piracy is becoming a key tactic of terrorist groups. In light of al Qaeda's professed aim of targeting weak links in the global economy, this new nexus is a serious threat: most of the world's oil and gas is shipped through pirate-infested waters."

"The juxtaposition of the National Rifle Association and the American Civil Liberties Union is a strange one, indeed. However, in these days following Columbine, schools have the right to censor material for and by students -- even capriciously -- for the protection of the students. They don't have to eliminate war photographs from textbooks to keep a photo of a student with a gun from being shown in a school-related publication. I don't believe that a First Amendment challenge will or ought to work."

"Nevertheless, the school board should reconsider. The picture is a representation of a student's honest endeavor, and shows commitment, resolve, and pride in accomplishment. ..." ...

"That's not unusual these days, it has been several decades since the rifle and shotgun deer chasers who go afield the Saturday after Thanksgiving have hogged the show. In the past decade, thanks to the Department Natural Resource's liberalization of bow and muzzleloader hunts, those with arrows and MLs now take almost as many deer each year as do modern firearms nimrods - and often before the firearms hunt opens. Within the next several years, they might overtake the firearms clan." ...

When his erratic braking on the streets of Carlisle led to an angry confrontation with another driver, former rugby player Jamie Hughes, 30, Rennie was certain that it would only be a matter of time before he was attacked."
