    In this election nothing would cease to amaze me. We have the state of Utah, a completely red state, polling closer than ever between the two parties. And now we have a state as blue as the come, Pennsylvania, with a new emergence of red votes. The state is as solid blue a s they come, but Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton, has done quite a lot to offend the state. Starting with her declaration to put coal miners out of business. I get what she was saying. She wants to move to alternative energy sources. I get it. BUT...

    Filmmaker Joel Gilbert, the creator of the “Super Trump” billboard that played in Times Square last week, has produced a satirical animated video in which Hillary Clinton is sent to an institution for treatment for being an “Ameriphobe.” An Ameriphobe, according to Gilbert’s video, is “a person who is offended by the traditional, patriotic idea of the United States of America as the exceptional ‘land of the free and home of the brave.’” The video begins with Clinton being admitted to a fictional “Donald Trump Clinic for Ameriphobia” on Jan. 23, 2017, three days after presumably Trump takes the oath...

However, a few weeks later, FBI Director James Comey met with reporters and indicated the Bureau had no set timeline for completing the investigation.

    On January 1, 2016, Texas will become the next state to allow licensed citizens to openly carry a handgun, this after Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed a bill into law earlier this year that would allow Texans to open carry. As is case with most similar laws, open carry in Texas will have some restrictions, as private businesses will have the right to ban people from flashing their weapon within their individual places of business. Florida is right behind Texas. The father and son legislative duo of Sen. Don Gaetz (R) and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R) have both sponsored open...

    Although C.L.H had a clean record and was not a defendant in the domestic violence proceeding, which was later voluntarily dismissed in any event, what authorities found out about his collection led to trouble. On examination by the State Police, five of the guns were considered under New Jersey law to be banned “assault weapons” which led to the forfeiture of those firearms and, since that disqualified him from further gun ownership under state law as argued the Cumberland County Prosecutor’s Office, the other 71 guns as well. A local court agreed and ordered the entire collection remain impounded pending...

Rather, he argued, the classroom must feature dialogue between students and teachers invested in a common task of inquiry. To put it otherwise, the classroom is a microcosm of a democratic society, where students instinctively learn to behave as democratic citizens.The NRA wants us to live in fear: The demented, highly profitable and deeply cynical logic behind arming...

Prior to that, the RCMP had no plan to secure firearms found in searches. It became apparent that residents had removed firearms from gun safes in basements and moved them to higher ground in their homes, meaning some weapons were now illegally stored and legally warranted seizure for safe keeping.

    In response to the latest mass shooting during his presidency, President Obama is seriously considering circumventing Congress with his executive authority and imposing new background-check requirements for buyers who purchase weapons from high-volume gun dealers. Snip The proposed executive action aims to impose background checks on individuals who buy from dealers who sell a significant number of guns each year. The current federal statute dictates that those who are “engaged in the business” of dealing firearms need to obtain a federal license — and, therefore, conduct background checks — but exempts anyone “who makes occasional sales, exchanges, or purchases of...

Last August, when President Obama announced that the U.S. would undertake a mostly proxy war against ISIS, I would have said that yelling “bang-bang” is the perfect metaphor for his anti-terrorism campaign. Today, whispering “bang-bang” is more like it. Iraq, where trainees lack weapons and ammunition, is the site of America’s most robust anti-terrorist activity. Elsewhere, our efforts are even more pathetic. The Post’s editors write:...

    William Lawler didn't want to shoot the man who threatened his girlfriend and him with a 13-inch knife Sunday outside a Pathmark store near his Northeast Philadelphia home.

    Pat yourselves on the back! As you will recall, GOA rallied gun owners several times over the past couple of months in opposition to Operation Choke Point. Well, faced with a devastating barrage from the Second Amendment community, the Obama administration has staged a hasty retreat on its plan to shut off credit for gun stores through “Operation Choke Point.” According to an article in The Washington Times, “[g]un retailers are no longer on a hit list deemed ‘high risk’ by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. after the banking regulator formally withdrew [this list]” last week. The FDIC said its...
