Just got the May issue of American Rifleman. There's a brief story about one of PETA's anti-hunting escapades. Apparently they captured 400 deer, outfitted them all with blaze orange vests, and let them go. It did not turn out as they expected, though. Someone offered prizes for anyone bagging a deer in an orange vest. That turned out to be relatively easy; as one hunter remarked, "You can see them coming a mile away." At last report, 308 of the 400 deer had been taken. God bless those thumb sucking idiots. [:D]

OMG! That's great! I love it when one of thier stupid schemes backfires! Sooner or later one of them is going to get killed breaking into private property. They don't seem to realize that we can legally shoot them in Colorado for that!

Damn, you mean there ain't no Santa Claus? [rolleyes] Guess American Rifleman should check out their stories a little more thoroughly. Now that I think about it, capturing a deer is probably a non-trivial undertaking.

When the NRA had its convention out here in Seattle in, uh, 1995?, Suzanne Gratiana-Hupp (TX state legislator, spokeswoman for CCW after her parents were murdered in the Luby's massacre) made a speech about the "was it a suicide or a murder" "coroner's ruling" thing that was circulating the 'net back then. You know -- guy is despondent, jumps off a roof, gets shot by a shotgun blast on the way down, turns out there's a net around the building (because of construction) that would have saved him if he hadn't been killed by the shotgun, turns out it was his father shooting at his mother, turns out the guy loaded the shotgun in the hope of father killing mother when father got drunk and waved shotgun around (family tradition), coroner finally rules it a "suicide". Only problem is, that was an urban legend that grew out of a lecture at a forensic-medicine convention. [:D] I hated having to explain that to her. [:p] Hah! Found it on Snopes!
