Windham (NH) School District Bans Dodgeball

http://www.eagletribune.com

Dodgeball has been banned in Windham schools, due to concerns about violence and bullying, with the School Board voting 4-1 to remove dodgeball and nine other “human target” activities from the district’s curriculum. “We spend a lot of time making sure our kids are violence free. Here we have games where we use children as targets. That seems to be counter to what we are trying to accomplish with our anti-bullying campaign.”

Cupcakes topped with army men figures confiscated at school

http://wtvr.com

Last week, Casey Fountain’s third grade son had a birthday party at school. His wife whipped up 30 cupcakes for the boy’s classmates. She topped the treats with plastic army guys. “And shortly after my wife delivered the cupcakes to the school she got a phone call from his teacher that said that the army men had to be removed, because they had guns.” Fountain says the principal called him personally and told him that dressing the cupcakes with soldiers was insensitive considering recent gun related tragedies, referring to the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut.

http://dailycaller.com

Louisiana state health inspectors destroyed 1,600 lbs of deer meat donated by hunters to a local homeless shelter. The agency received a complaint that deer meat was being served at a mission. State regulations bar food establishments from serving hunted deer meat. Late January, the department discovered the deer meat — which had been appropriately processed at an area slaughterhouse — and destroyed it in a dumpster by dousing it in bleach. The Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission had been serving deer meat donated by area hunters for decades.

Proposed WA gun law calls on police to inspect homes of gun owners

http://www.theblaze.com

Now, Democratic lawmakers in Olympia, Wash. last week introduced legislation that would allow county sheriffs to inspect the homes of semi-automatic rifle owners once a year. Seattle Times columnist Danny Westneat describes the move as “Orwellian.”

I work with a "conservative" reserve deputy sheriff, he says that he would inspect home if the sheriff instructed him to, because it is, after all, the law. I asked him if he remembered much about the stamp act. He just looked at me with utter confusion.

Topless women could get prison time under NC proposal

http://www.foxnews.com

A bill that could send women to prison for going topless in public appears headed for approval by the North Carolina legislature.
