Once again, in response to a mass shooting — this one the worst in modern U.S. history — many Americans are calling for stronger gun regulation. And once again, despite some Republicans’ signals that they’ll consider limits on “bump stock” devices such as the ones that helped the Las Vegas shooter kill 58 people and injure […]
Since the carnage in Las Vegas, there’s been a lot of talk on TV and commentary in print about gun control. Not just any gun control of course, but “reasonable” and “common sense” gun control. But since words matter, it matters how you define “reasonable” and “common sense.” And on… CONTINUE
Despite years of repeatedly seeing the behavior repeated, it never ceases to astound me how hypocritical members of the mainstream media can be. Earlier this month, I tore apart a letter from the president of an organization that represented mainstream media outlets such as the New York Times, Associated Press, BBC, etc, wrote an open letter to radio show host, and NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch.

Trump can’t seem to keep from shooting himself in the foot. Yes. Pun intended. For the second time during the course of the presidential campaign, Donald Trump invoked the possibility of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s assassination.
