"The teeth. I just remember seeing the teeth and the fangs, and the wide-open mouth," said Smith, 40, who was elk hunting with a friend near Moran Junction in Grand Teton National Park.

"An angry bear that Smith immediately knew was a grizzly emerged about 15 yards away. In two strides, he said, the bear covered the ground between them."

"We need be less concerned about the consequences of arming qualified pilots, and more concerned with the consequences of a failure to do so."

"Gun collectors and dealers are watching carefully to see if the state Senate will try to revive a proposal to make gun show promoters apply for a permit at least two months in advance of a show."

“We just feel it gives us better control of firearms,” said Cumberland County Sheriff Moose Butler, president of the Sheriff’s Association. “It keeps us in the know, and in the loop who’s being represented at these gun shows. We’re not trying to suppress anybody.”

"All prospective patrol members must take a day-long training course and attend monthly meetings at the police station."

[Their only equipment: log book, 2-way radio, plat of the neighborhood.]

Stupid Law, Stupid Ruling

"If indeed 'the law is an idiot,' as Charles Dickens once wrote, then it was at its most idiotic when a state appellate court ruled earlier this month that a Florida law prohibiting the sale of guns to 'any person of unsound mind' was not unconstitutionally vague."

"Does this mean gun shop owners are going to have to give IQ tests to their clients?"

"The law also inadequately defines 'unsound mind.'...At what point does low IQ alone make a person 'of unsound mind'?"

"Suspension of constitutional rights is what working is about."

Story says it's from June, but it's on the front page today and dated 10/28 in its filename:

Getting smacked by a round from a beanbag gun might not sound extremely painful, but Terry Wilson sets folks straight on that notion real quick.

“It’s an awful lot like getting kicked by a horse,” said the Glenwood Springs police chief. “You’re going to feel like someone took a baseball bat, took a full swing and nailed you with it.”
 

Take me out to the clay shoot

"The woods around Alpine Gun Range were filled with the smell of burnt gunpowder on a cool morning last week, providing a pleasant aroma for scores of shotgunners who had gathered for a day of friendly sporting clays competition."

"That scent, along with the occasional burst of a 12- or 20-gauge shotgun, struck Texas Rangers outfielder Rusty Greer as an unspoken reminder of a role he has taken away from baseball in recent years - how people treat Texas' wildlife and its environment."

"Residents living in the remote woods along Daisy Lane in Browns Mills are used to the night sounds of crickets and tree frogs."

"Pistols and shotgun fire is another thing entirely."

"Yet ever since last month's opening of the county's new Firearms Training Center here, several residents say they've been disturbed by the late night rat-a-tat-tat of cops at practice."

A woman who claims her home is but a few hundred yards from the range isn't pleased.

"A 16-year-old high school student was wounded on campus when a friend's handgun accidentally fired as the friend's backpack tumbled off a ledge."

"The student from Redondo Union High School was in stable condition at the University of California, Los Angeles Harbor Hospital. A bullet had entered his left side Friday and pierced a lung before exiting. He is expected to fully recover."

Multiple "laws" were broken -- but we should rely on "laws" to protect us, right?

On Nashville Television:

"People who said they would never own a gun are now buying weapons, hand guns and rifles in every shape and size, ammunition and even knives."

"Ladies young and old buying hand guns, shotguns rifles, firearms, anything they could use to protect their family."

"I think it's a good thing really, because women need to know how to take care of themselves also."

"With patriotism and fear suddenly sweeping our nation, many who never considered buying guns before are suddenly fired up."
