Reciprocity: Keeping Track of the Fine Print

Wednesday, December 20, 2017 — Legislation, like all legal functions, begins and ends with a hope and a prayer.

Info On The Las Vegas Shooter Has Gone Dark

Monday, December 18, 2017 | Las Vegas has long been hailed as “the city that never sleeps,” but the coverage of the deadly attack on a country music festival on the night of October 1st has long since gone to bed.

Keeping Up With the Joneses

Wednesday, December 13, 2017 — Fear that congressional Republicans have lost a seat from their already thin majority has shocked those that see Doug Jones’ victory over Roy Moore as a giveaway to Democrats but it might not be as reliable a bet as it appears.

The Inescapable SCOTUS Guessing Game

Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2017 – As this week began, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear two significant gun cases, an assault rifle ban and mag size limit in Maryland and an open carry law in Florida.

Despite Record Checks For Gun Buyers The Left Keeps Going Through The Motions

Monday, November 27, 2017 — If nothing else than total shopping chaos, Black Friday was yet another revelation for gun controllers. Americans are still buying more guns.

The Unintended Consequences of Gun Control

Friday, November 17, 2017 – In our zeal to stay steps ahead of lawmakers such as those who dominate California’s gun control laws, the bird has finally left the nest.

Inches or Miles, a Win is a Win, Gun Controllers Say

Thursday, November 16, 2017 — Connecticut U.S. Senator Chris Murphy is the first to say, excitedly, “We’ve got a win on gun control!”  We’re paraphrasing, of course, but Murphy tipped the half full glass Tuesday when he gleefully announced that a bipartisan agreement in the Senate was near.  Sure enough, Texas Senator John Cornyn said Wednesday...

The Failure of Airport Gun Screening

November 15, 2017 — A recent report reveals that airport security failed to catch over 70 percent of the weapons that testers attempted to sneak through TSA checkpoints. While anyone who has been inconvenienced by the lines and hassle of airport screening should be outraged at this incompetence, we should also be asking what this...

The Endless Frustration of Constitutional Change and the Path of Least Resistance

Monday, November 13, 2017 – There are no words left to console the grief of parents who lost their children to Adam Lanza’s crazed and murderous rampage.

“Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition”

Friday, November 10, 2017 – That headline was a favorite tune whistled by soldiers and sailors after the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941.

Cops in Church

Thursday, November 09, 2017 – If you were intent on committing murder would you walk into a church you knew was filled with cops?  Not likely.

The Gun Law That Failed In Texas

Monday, November 06, 2017 – After the fact, it’s easy to take sides. One group blames the lack of gun laws.  Another says people who commit crimes with guns don’t care about gun laws.

Friday, November 03, 2017 – The murder of three people in a Denver Area shooting puts emphasis on the use of some kind of visible ID issued along with a CCW permit that separates the good guys with guns from a bad guy with a gun. That obvious fact played out in the Denver area...
