One New York politician is calling it a teachable moment. The family of the man who committed the “indiscretion” is saying the public is overreacting. The reader is free to draw his or her own conclusions. CBS New York has the exclusive:
What happens in Kansas stays in Kansas. At least that’s what Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is telling Attorney General Holder about guns sold to residents of the state. A new state law contends that guns purchased in the state of Kansans are free of any federal regulations and that federal agents who try to enforce the federal laws will be committing a felony.
Earlier this week, the grand compromise gun control bill, Manchin-Toomey, was voted down. While many will point the finger of blame at Republicans, here’s the real culprit: Harry Reid, Senate majority leader, and Dick Durbin, Senate majority whip. Despite the impassioned rhetoric on this issue, Sen. Durbin didn’t bother to “whip” the bill, meaning he wasn’t offering inducements (or threats) to enforce party discipline in a unanimous party-line vote.
First, there was a national pandemic in which schools overreacted to perceived acts of violence. Among the documented threats that led to student suspensions were biting a breakfast pastry into the shape of a gun, pointing a forefinger to imitate a gun barrel, and talking about guns.
In case you missed President’s Obama’s latest impassioned spiel (and trust me, you didn’t miss anything even if you didn’t hear him), he was in Connecticut on Monday to attempt to reinvigorate his assault on assault weapons, etc. Having lost the first battle in the war to disarm Americans in the Democrat-led Senate, Obama was back, angrily importuning voters to call their Congress members and demand that they “rush to make” universal background checks a reality.
How far will the nation’s schools go in the expressed interest of shielding our children from another Newtown? How’s rewriting the Constitution sound? It doesn’t sound all that great to Steven Boibeaux, of Bristol, Conn., whose son attends Northeast Middle School.
Fox News’s Todd Starnes reports that on Monday, the eighth-grader received a worksheet from his social studies teacher titled “The Second Amendment Today.”
Some people clearly just don’t know when to quit. One of them is comedic actor Jim Carrey. Believing he had tapped into the elusive humor in the debate over gun control, he concocted a scathing 5-minute sendup of people who believe in the Second Amendment — and predictably received flak. Now he is attempting to rebut his critics.
As the U.S. Supreme Court moves on today to Act II in the unfolding drama over “marriage equality,” it is worth taking note of the number of times the phrase 14th Amendment has been invoked by the left — assuming you can count that high. Yes, liberals are bullish right now on the Constitution, which they claim guarantees homosexuals the right to marry.
Such a photo posted on Facebook prompted a concerned citizen to notify New Jersey’s Department of Children and Families. The agency reacted by dispatching case workers accompanied by members of the local police force to the home of Shawn Moore in Carneys Point last Friday.
Emotion-based Democrat’s argument for banning specific models of semi-automatic weapons deserved better refutations than those offered by Republican Lawyer Cruz.
Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) reads bullet wounds like Hermann Rorschach read psychiatric patients’ ink blot interpretations. And we suspect the diagnosis of Feinstein’s view of blood-splatter patterns as requiring the banning of precisely 157 guns would be one of delusions of grandeur.
