Tennessee: Store robber shot: "A convenience store robbery in Southeast Memphis ended in a shooting. Police say the shooting victim had just tried to rob a clerk at the store. It happened just after 9 p.m. at the "Fast Check" on Winchester near Knight. That's just east of the airport. Police say when two crooks tried to rob a clerk at the store, the store owner shot one of the robbers. They say the other robber is on the run. The shooting victim was taken to The Med in critical condition."

Deer Attacks Arkansas Grandfather: "A deer attacked an 84-year-old man in Colt, AR on Thanksgiving Day. J.W. Mitchell has lived in Colt for a long time. It's a town of about 300, and who knows how many deer. Mitchell and the deer usually keep to themselves. That changed Thursday. Mitchell says the deer was attacking his dog, Buddy, in the backyard. Mitchell says the seven point buck turned on him when he went outside to help. Mitchell suffered injuries to his arms and wrists, but says it could have been worse. "Yes it could have. If I hadn't of had that stick there's no telling what he would have done," says Mitchell. Mitchell uses a walking stick made out of metal from an old swing-set. He was carrying it during the attack. A neighbor came over with a shotgun, and killed the deer."

MS: Castle doctrine lauded by gun advocates: "Kathy Adkins moved from target to target, using a .38 revolver and a 9 mm semiautomatic pistol with deadly efficiency, putting holes in the dead centers of paper targets meant to look like people. Adkins, 48, owns a real estate firm in Jackson and has been taking firearms training since March. Instructor Cliff Cargill said he has had many new students since the Legislature passed a bill last year giving residents expanded legal rights to protect themselves in their homes, cars or businesses."
