Range where instructor killed by girl drew concerns

Shooting rangeThe Bullets and Burgers gun range at Arizona Last Stop fell silent this week.

No high-powered rounds could be heard at the biker bar a mile down the road, no tourists were allowed to try firing a fully automatic rifle, and no downrange neighbors feared a stray bullet. The range has closed indefinitely.

Iowa Politician Admits To Accepting Illegal Money From Ron Paul Campaign

Ron PaulA former Iowa state senator has pleaded guilty to hiding money received from Ron Paul’s presidential campaign in exchange for ending his support for Michele Bachmann, the Department of Justice announced on Wednesday.

Israel's attack on neighborhood in Gaza left US officers 'stunned'

Israel's raid stuns PentagonThe cease-fire announced Tuesday between Israel and Palestinian factions — if it holds — will end seven weeks of fighting that killed more than 2,200 Gazans and 69 Israelis. But as the rival camps seek to put their spin on the outcome, one assessment of Israel’s Gaza operation that won’t be publicized is the U.S. military’s.
