    I was driving from Sarasota, Florida, to Washington in the pre-dawn hours Sunday morning when my iPhone chirped a news alert. More than 50 people dead at a nightclub shooting in Orlando. The deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. And later, news that the gunman reportedly called 911 to declare his loyalty to Islamic State before committing the act, investigators said. The preceding Monday, less than a week earlier, I had returned to the United States for only my second visit in about two years. In the intervening time I had been on the front lines in Ukraine, in Iraq,...

    What the Black Lives Matter movement misses about those police shootings. For the last year, the Washington Post has been gathering data on fatal police shootings of civilians. Commentators have taken the Post’s data as evidence that the police are gunning down unarmed blacks out of implicit bias. But a close examination of the Post’s findings casts doubt on the notion that these shootings were driven by race. The Post began its police shootings project in response to the 2014 killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. As of Jan. 15, the Post had documented 987 victims of fatal police...

The volume of gunshot wounds and other trauma cases treated at Stroger Hospital is so high that the U.S. Navy has teamed up the past two years with the hospital’s prestigious trauma unit to keep its medical personnel better prepared for their next deployment. The Navy guys might see as much action in a typical night at Stroger as they would if they were in a combat setting. Let that sink in for a minute....

Judging by the most recent developments, Obama will have nothing to say about Chicago gun violence either during tonight's state of the union address, or ever for that matter, because recent developments are downright disastrous. According to the...

    While the video release of a Chicago police officer's shooting of Laquan McDonald prompted a domino effect of change, including the ousting of the police superintendent and a federal civil rights investigation, the department finished 2015 on an ironic note: Officers shot the fewest people that they have in years. Chicago police officers shot 22 people in 2015, eight of them fatally. That's a 40 percent drop in the total number of people shot compared with 2014, when 37 people were hit by police gunfire and 16 of them were killed, according to department figures.

A hostage situation was fortunately resolved, but as a result one person was hospitalized. Should we be at all surprised?

Obviously, this was a concerning statistic--if it were actually true.It turns out it wasn't, and even figures on the left agree.

The high court under Chief Justice John Roberts has in recent terms agreed to rule on cases related to how states handle death penalty prosecutions and conduct executions, but has yet to weigh in on whether the practice violates the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment.  Some court watchers say that will soon change, pointing to signals suggesting an appetite among some of the justices to...

He queried his victims before he shot them; the Christians were shot in the head while non-Christians were shot in the legs. That aspect was curiously absent from Obama's remarks after the shooting. Had the victims been shot because they were anything but Christian, Obama would have denounced the hate-crime aspect of the murders. But it is not Obama's screed that I want to address at this time, loathsome as it was. As...

    Why has no one asked President Obama what “common sense” gun control measures in addition to those already at work in Chicago he would like to see? Why has no one asked him about the disparity in his concern over a handful of white victims in Orgeon versus his complete ignoring of hundreds of black murder victims in his hometown? Chicago, the town Obama adopted as his own and where his mansion still sits, puts the lie to the vague gun control nostrums he is selling.

    <p>It is time to allow concealed carry by permit holders EVERYWHERE right NOW. If Obama REALLY wanted to help the nation against mass shootings he would immediately implement a proposal to pass into FEDERAL law the right for those lawfully getting permits to be able to carry ANYWHERE and be held completely responsible for their actions should they be involved in an incident. However, Obama has a different agenda. He wants to disarm the U.S. public, with an exception for Muslims of course, so he can de facto take over the country and cram is filthy philosophies down our throats.</p>

    President Obama is on fire about the evil of guns! Starting to look more and more like today's shooting was a precursor to a speech. Has he congratulated Congress for funding the abortion baby hacker for body parts clinic?
