    Michael Bloomberg has a lot of money to spend to work at restricting Americans right to keep and bear arms. One of the latest projects is an online publication called "The Trace". The Washington Examiner says both the New York's "Capital" and the NRA agree that the site's purpose is to push Bloomberg's views. From washingtonexaminer.com: The National Rifle Association doesn't buy it. "This project is yet another illustration of Bloomberg's ego-driven zeal to control other Americans and diminish not just their rights, but their access to reliable information about their rights," its lobbying shop said. and In the...

Nugent, appearing Sunday on "The Rita Cosby Show" on WABC in New York, said he is dubious of media reports that the lion was lured out of a sanctuary because of the number of untrue statements the media has made about him in the past. If he could talk to Palmer, Nugent said, "I would say I'm sorry that our society has become so dumbed down and so soul-less, as to threaten you and your family's lives, because you killed...

At age 28, Dershowitz became the youngest full professor of law in history with his appointment at Harvard. And, yes, it went to his head.

John David McMorris reached the agreement Tuesday, July 28, after he sued Flint Township Police and Sgt. Russell Fries following his Dec....

    Obama has decided that two wildly unpopular policies, one foreign and one domestic, will be the final legacy of his wildly unpopular administration. The domestic policy is gun control. The foreign policy is Iranian nukes. While Americans will be disarmed, Iran will be getting ready for its ballistic missiles. Ramming through wildly unpopular policies is what this administration does best. More than anything else, this administration will be remembered for the mix of bullying, smears, pop culture distractions, outright lies, bureaucratic sabotage and blatant lawbreaking with which it achieved its policy goals.

Cecil, well known to those who visited the Hwange National Park in western Zimbabwe for his jet black mane, was beheaded, according to conservation officials. His corpse was left to rot in the sun.

Every friend of freedom should rally to their cause. The federal government is now seeking to deny these sisters freedom of conscience. It has already taken its case against their liberty all the way through the U.S. Court of Appeal for the 10th Circuit. If the government succeeds, it means Catholic nuns in this country can no longer freely exercise their Catholic faith. They must...

There are a number of fallacies and biases that this line of reasoning adheres to; correlation = causation, , single cause fallacy, the bandwagon fallacy or appeal to popularity, and confirmation bias through functional fixation, otherwise known as technological determinism...

    Last week, Pope Francis released his long awaitedand preemptively leakedencyclical, acknowledging climate change as mostly human-induced and cause for drastic transformation on both individual and nationwide levels. It was an unprecedented move by the leader of the Catholic Church, as religiosity has long been linked to lower levels of climate concern. Fortunately, however, the Pope's message will fall on receptive ears. Researchers at the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication have found that, among religious Republicansand Republicans are more likely to be religious than DemocratsCatholic Republicans are "more convinced that global warming is happening and human-caused, and are more worried...

    Atkinsons letter comes after Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed a bill that made it legal to carry a firearm openly in Texas. The law, which gives private property owners the right to prohibit open carry, was hailed as a victory for gun rights advocates who have staged high-profile rallies at the Alamo and Texas Capitol over the past couple of years. Some even brought military-style assault rifles into businesses as part of their demonstrations, prompting the Chipotle restaurant chain to discourage firearms on their premises.

    On July 7, Father Michael Pfleger, the Coalition for Safe Communities in Chicago, and other gun control plaintiffs filed a lawsuit suggesting gun control is a civil right that is violated by a lack of gun laws and regulations in the Chicago-area villages of Riverdale, Lyons and Lincolnwood. The suit claims that 20 percent of guns found at Chicago crime scenes between 2009 and 2013 were guns legally purchased from gun shops in these villages. Therefore, the suit posits a need for more regulatory oversight of gun stores in Riverdale, Lyons, and Lincolnwood.

    These kids are going to be future legislators, and theyre going to get in there and know the truth about weapons. When I was in high school, back in the Stone Age, many if not most American high schools, both public and private, had shooting teams.

Competitive musketry dates to 16th century England and has been an Olympic sport since 1896. Today trap, a cousin of skeet and sporting clays, is as popular with...

    Connecticut Sens. Chris Murphy and Richard Blumenthal, both Democrats, have called on President Obama to take executive action to close a loophole in federal gun control legislation. The so-called default to proceed rule under the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act allows firearm dealers to sell a weapon to an individual if they have not been notified by the FBI of a buyers criminal background within three business days. If the background check has not been completed within three days, the dealer has discretion to sell the firearm. The rule allowed Dylann Roof, the alleged killer of nine people at a...

    A stemwinder from last night’s debate in the South Carolina house, in case you missed it elsewhere. Jenny Horne’s position prevailed, of course; Nikki Haley’s set to sign the bill removing the flag in a formal ceremony sometime this hour.But the flag drama’s not done yet, my friends. Thanks to the congressional GOP, it’s just getting warmed up: Republican leaders on Thursday abruptly yanked an environmental spending bill from the House floor before a final vote amid a storm of protest over an amendment that would have allowed Confederate flags at federal cemeteries…Only the day before, Republicans had assented...

    New York Sen. Charles Schumer (D.) wrote letters to Amazon and eBay urging them and other online retailers to stop selling gun-grip iPhone cases on their platforms. Schumer argues that the case “creates danger when seen in kids’ pockets” and likely breaks federal law, according to press release posted to his website Tuesday.Versions of the cases available online come in multiple colors and feature imitation trigger guards, grips, and barrels. The particular “Gun Grip Case” cited by Schumer resembles a 9mm handgun and features an imitation trigger guard and grip. “Any retailer willing to sell this potentially dangerous and tasteless...
