NRA-Backed Law Spells Out When Indianans May Open Fire on Police:  "Every time police Sergeant Joseph Hubbard stops a speeder or serves a search warrant, he says he worries suspects assume they can open fire -- without breaking the law.  Hubbard, a 17-year veteran of the police department in Jeffersonville, Indiana, says his apprehension stems from a state law approved this year that allows residents to use deadly force in response to the "unlawful intrusion" by a "public servant" to protect themselves and others, or their property.  Indiana is the first U.S. state to specifically allow force against officers.  The National Rifle Association pushed for the law, saying an unfavorable court decision made the need clear and that it would allow homeowners to defend themselves during a violent, unjustified attack."  [The police have their own bad behavior to thank for this]

Lingerie for hot shots: The 'Flashbang' bra with a hand gun holster:  "A bra fitted with a gun holster is on sale thanks to an ingenious design by a law enforcement supplier from Oklahoma.  The Flashbang bra is attached with a thermoplastic shell that is able to store one of more than 20 hand gun styles already on the market.  Lisa Looper, owner of Looper Law Enforcement which is a company that produces 'concealed carry gear', came up with the design to give her the ability to defend herself 'at a moment's notice'.  It offers a modern-day take on traditional female self-defense systems such as the garter belt holster made popular in American Old Western films of the early Forties.  Mrs Looper, a mother of two, told ABC: 'I really never intended to create a holster line, that was never something that I wanted to do. I just did this for myself but as I was talking to other women, they were like "oh my gosh, this is great, I have the same problem.'"
