FOX News reported the signing of the executive order, quoting Kenney as saying, “This gives them some protection, some peace of mind, some ability to call the authorities when some knucklehead decides they want to bring a gun into a rec center, and they see it, that’s part of what this is about.”

    The rising crime rate in Los Angeles is a hot-button issue in this year’s race for Los Angeles mayor. And the issue just hit closer to home for one candidate. Democratic Congresswoman Karen Bass said Saturday that her home was burglarized. “Last night, I came home and discovered that my house had been broken into and burglarized,” the Bass campaign said in a statement. “LAPD was called, and I appreciate their assistance. At this time, it appears that only two firearms, despite being safely and securely stored, were stolen. Cash, electronics and other valuables were not. It’s unnerving and, unfortunately,...

On Thursday, Bowser declared an emergency over the many migrant buses that have been sent to the sanctuary city of Washington, DC, from Texas by Gov. Greg Abbott (R) over the last few months.

Democratic Rep. Jared Golden (Maine) voted with Republicans in opposing the measure, while GOP Rep. Fred Upton (Mich.) supported the amendment. Two Republicans and...

    Club-going Mayor Eric Adams is a man who likes to boogie. Now he also apparently believes in the boogeyman. Adams turned his attention from the Bronx Bombers to the Manhattan boo-ers as he broke news in the Yankees press box during Tuesday’s game: Gracie Mansion is haunted. “I don’t care what anyone says, there are ghosts in there, man,” Hizzoner told Yankees announcers Michael Kay and Cameron Maybin, who invited him into the booth after the mayor tossed out the first pitch. Adams laughed while confirming he sees stuff moving around and hears footsteps in the stately 223-year-old country house...

It’s how to make people in urban America, suburban America, and rural America feel safe. The only way to do it is to really get to the point of sensible gun control in...

    WEST HAVEN, CT (WFSB) - West Haven residents gathered outside of City Hall Monday night and called for the city’s mayor to resign. The protest came after an audit found that the city improperly spent federal COVID relief money. The City Council held a meeting on Monday night and many sought to speak out to ask Mayor Nancy Rossi to resign. At the last meeting two weeks ago, dozens of neighbors did just that. That public comment was followed by a unanimous City Council “no confidence” vote in the mayor. Rossi was not at the last meeting, but she was...

    When did so many young and healthy middle-aged people, described as fit and sporty, drop dead before 2020? Since December 2020, many sudden and unexpected deaths of mayors under 60 years old have occurred in Germany and Austria. Questions are swirling about whether these elected officials were overwhelmed by job stress, or could there be another reason for so many “fit and healthy” politicians dying? On December 12, 2020, 41-year-old CSU Mayor Dirk Rosenbauer collapsed during a municipal council meeting and later died in a hospital in Coburg. The headline read, “At only 41 years old – mayor from Bavaria...
