Washington Post Writer Likens Bloomberg Gun Control Org to Productive Charities

Fri, 12/01/2017 - 15:06
It is a small mercy that the Washington Post relegates Petula Dvorak’s column to the paper’s Metro section below the fold, preventing at least some readers from happening upon her insipid thoughts. According to a short biography offered by the Post, Dvorak’s areas of journalistic expertise include “homeless shelters, gun control, high heels, high school choirs, the politics of parenting, jails, abortion clinics, mayors, modern families, strip clubs and gas prices, among other things.” Perhaps Dvorak has some minor knack for hard-hitting reporting on women’s footwear and gentlemen’s clubs, but as her latest commentary shows, her forays into gun control politics lack the most basic competence.

Rosie O’Donnell and Kim Kardashian West Aren’t Entirely Against Guns, Just You Having Them

Fri, 12/01/2017 - 14:41
In the late 1990s and early 2000s no celebrity pushed gun control more than comedienne and actress Rosie O’Donnell.

Nevada: Background check supporters, like Wolfson, still refuse to admit Question 1 mistake

Fri, 12/01/2017 - 11:15
Question 1 was the 2016 ballot initiative that requires background checks on private party sales. Despite supporters spending almost $20 million, voters only narrowly approved it last November. The organizers of the effort should have spent more on a lawyer who knew how to write an enforceable law.

Rep. Richard Hudson: Law-abiding citizens must have access to guns to protect themselves

Fri, 12/01/2017 - 08:27
You’ve heard it before: “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” This was the case at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, when a law-abiding citizen shot and deterred a disturbed murderer, almost certainly preventing further death. After the tragedy, every American had the same reaction – why did this happen and how can we stop it from happening again?

Florida Alert! Justice Pariente refuses to recuse herself and refuses to explain why

Thu, 11/30/2017 - 18:10
It's not too late.  Justice Pariente can still recuse herself or resign.  Based on a 1980 case, motions seeking the recusal of a Supreme Court Justice are decided ONLY by the Justice asked to recuse -- not all seven Justices.  Justice Pariente alone, not the rest of the Court, made the decision to refuse to recuse herself, and she did not have the courage to give the Governor of the State the professional courtesy of explaining the justification for her decision.

The futility of gun laws

Thu, 11/30/2017 - 08:04
In determining how to best address mass murders like the one that occurred in Las Vegas, doing the wrong thing is always worse than doing nothing. The United States hasn’t the financial or the law-enforcement resources to safeguard innocent people from the kind of carnage wrought by Stephen Paddock. Should all the firearms in America be banned, people who hate will simply find other ways to kill.
