"Tests in New Jersey on a deer contraceptive vaccine have failed. Miserably."

"The vaccine, called SpayVac, was used this year on 52 whitetail does in New Jersey, according to a recent report in The Star-Ledger of Newark, N.J. Those does produced at least two dozen fawns. Another group of deer in Ohio had similar results, the story said." ...

"But here's the passage from the story that most caught my eye: 'Along with (the failure of the drug in field tests) went the hopes for what wildlife biologists have sought for more than 20 years: an environmentally sound deer contraceptive that could be applied with one easy shot and last for years.'"

"A month later, a review of the available evidence now shows that some, though not all, of the most alarming stories that coursed through the city appear to be little more than figments of frightened imaginations, the product of chaotic circumstances that included no reliable communications, and perhaps the residue of the longstanding raw relations between some police officers and members of the public." ...

"It's definitely not your typical tourist pitch."

"'Thinking about a Florida vacation?' the advertisement asks. 'A new law in the Sunshine State authorizes nervous or frightened residents to use deadly force.'"

"Ads, fliers, billboards and a Web site are part of a campaign by a national gun control group to warn visitors about Florida's 'Stand Your Ground' law that takes effect Saturday."

"The law gives broad legal protections to a person who is attacked not only at home, but 'any other place where he or she has a right to be,' and removes a common-law duty to retreat in the face of attack. A person being attacked will have 'the right to stand his or her ground and meet force with force,' not only at home but in public places." ...

"The mainstream media's blind commitment to opposing any gun rights legislation is giving a whole new meaning to the word BLIND."

"On Friday September 16, the Associated Press botched a story it published after we broke the news that Rep. Aslanides' would soon be introducing a sweeping firearms law reform bill by reporting that 'the media would lose access to lists of concealed-weapons permit-holders ... under a bill to be introduced in the Ohio House next week.'" ...

"Since that first erroneous story, which was republished dozens of times in wire service reports throughout the state, no less than four Ohio newspapers have published editorials repeating the same false accounts about what the legislation would do, even after the AP published a story clarifying what was truly contained in the bill." ...

"Those provisions are among the most significant changes made from last session's concealed carry bill, which called for sheriffs to issue permits, Zien said."

"Zien shared a few details of the latest proposal Wednesday, but would not release a draft copy until today because of legal concerns, he said. ..." ...

"Since March, lawmakers have rushed to outlaw online hunting, a pseudo-sport that sprung up mere months ago on a single Texas website, live-shot.com, which attracted only one customer."

"This political recoil has both observers and the site's owner wondering: 'Why?'"

"John Lockwood, who founded live-shot.com, said he still can't understand the reason state lawmakers banned online hunting. He said his site was intended for disabled hunters who can't stalk wildlife any other way but through his system, which rigs a rifle and camera to an Internet connection at his Texas ranch." ...

"During a pistol training session, the police officer took hold of his gun and, weeping and shaking, remarked that he should put a bullet in his own head."

"It was the culmination of 25 years in the force, often at the frontline of 'extreme trauma and distressing scenes'. But although Bruce Pearce was clearly suffering a breakdown, and his superiors were aware of it, NSW Police did nothing."

"Mr Pearce, 50, was even given the role of victim support officer for the family of a murdered teenager, a task that was to consume his every waking moment."

"In the NSW District Court yesterday Mr Pearce was awarded $580,703 in damages, plus costs, because the police force had failed in its duty of care." ...

"The deaths of 19 young Muslims in Songkhla's Saba Yoi district on April 28 last year were the result of an overreaction by the authorities, a National Human Rights Commission report concludes."

"The report said there was evidence to believe the young men, 18 of whom played football together, had surrendered. Police should have arrested them instead of using force, which led to their deaths."

"The 21-page report, released yesterday, quoted a witness who recalled seeing the young men captured by about 30 policemen. The men, aged 19-25, held their hands up in the air in surrender before being pushed back into a restaurant. They were later shot dead."

"Sounds like a golf community, a ski community or perhaps an equestrian development. Gatewood, though, who has a background in Web design and multimedia work, is looking to appeal to a specialized demographic: people who like to shoot guns." ...

Then it changes back to summer and it's during the early teal season but you don't feel right going duck hunting in shorts and wearing bug spray, but you do go dove hunting and sweat like crazy but hunting is great and the shooting isn't all that bad. Then two days later it's back to fall and the doves head out for Texas. Only in Nebraska!"
