Windsor store owner cleared in shooting: "A Windsor liquor store owner who fatally shot a robber won't face charges, Weld District Attorney Ken Buck announced Monday. Ron Trauernicht, 59, acted in self-defense when his store, Corner Liquors in Windsor, was robbed last summer, Buck said in a written statement. Douglas Wies, 32, of Fort Collins wore a mask and walked into the store, 117 6th St., on the afternoon of July 8. He told Ron and Norma Trauernicht he had a gun, brandished something in his hand covered by a cloth and demanded money from the cash register."

Arizona: Taser set to change marketing: "On the same day Taser International confirmed federal regulators are investigating the company, Arizona's attorney general said the stun gun manufacturer has agreed to change the way it markets its gun. Attorney General Terry Goddard's office said Tuesday that Taser has offered to increase product warnings, change some of its broad claims of safety and limit the use of the word 'non-lethal.' 'Our primary concern has been Taser's safety claims that we felt may have understated the risks of serious harm,' Goddard said in a statement to The Arizona Republic. 'We are encouraged that the company has agreed to make many changes that reduce or qualify these claims. We are now reviewing these proposed changes.'"
