GA: Civilian assists police: "As Middlebrooks ran out his door and down the steps he ran into the suspect at the back of the building's breezeway. "As I stepped off this bottom step, he turns right here and I pointed the gun at him and told him to freeze," Middlebrooks said. But the suspect didn't stop. He kept running and Middlebrooks ran after him telling him to freeze. As the suspect ran into the parking lot in front of the building, Middlebrooks said he stopped, pointed the gun at the suspect and yelled "Don't make me shoot you in the back." The suspect stopped and went to the ground. Middlebrooks held the suspect until a police officer came and cuffed the suspect."

NRA drifting Left: "So far this year, the NRA has endorsed 58 incumbent House Democrats, including more than a dozen in seats that both parties view as critical to winning a majority. The endorsements aren't the result of a sudden love for a party with which the NRA is often at odds. Rather, the powerful group adheres to what it calls "an incumbent-friendly" policy, which holds that if two candidates are equally supportive of gun rights, the incumbent gets the nod. The policy has been in place for some time, and the NRA has always backed a number of Democrats, but the group's choices have become especially contentious this year because control of Congress is at stake and because so many gun-supporting Democrats were elected over the past four years. The policy is frustrating Republicans who think the group is hurting its own cause and the party's chances next month."
