I think I've found a solution to the debate over open carry laws that will satisfy all sides and answer our many concerns. Get a tank.
For a century-and-a-half, the doctrine of nullification seemed safely consigned to the dustbin of history. The State Senate of Missouri, however, has chosen to arouse this beast from its slumber. And Americans must speak out.
If we can divorce race and firearms, we can talk about racial disparities in America and figure out if we need to create a more just system. And then we can talk about the Second Amendment.
The opinion of the pro-gun movement seems to be that the guy with the gun is always right, no matter what the facts of the case are; that gun possession makes you a super-citizen with enhanced rights to take life, avoid prosecution, and use lethal force in response to non-lethal force.
I know politics is all about compromise. I know we sometimes have to settle for not getting everything we want in a candidate. But there are some things I refuse to accept in a potential leader. Pandering to the right to support Open Carry Laws fits in that category. I'm sitting out this Texas gubernatorial election.
Candidates need to talk -- especially candidates that are considered the underdog. Wendy Davis ought to be running toward reporters, not away from them. Don't exercise control; exercise honesty and complete openness.
Maybe I've got it all mixed up, but I haven't seen any interviews with guys in prison who pulled out a gun and shot someone because it was the "only" way they could settle an argument on favorable terms.
Last week, a St. Louis-based KSDK-TV reporter caused an hour-long lockdownat Kirkwood High School in his attempts to "test" school security. What was this TV station thinking? As a parent in our climate of incessant school shootings, I am beyond angry a local television station tricked a school purely for a ratings bump.
Despite the growing possession of arms, the gun debate is also something that continues to grow. Producers James Dann and Richard Morel explore the debate in 2nd Amendment.
Storming the Sacramento Capitol steps, led by Chairman Bobby Seale, including a dozen African American men and six women fully armed, came to protes...
Homicide may be down nationally, but until we reach the corners of America that still suffer from daily violence, and where getting stopped, arrested, and locked up are a normal part of a young man's life, we are doing them an injustice.
Martin Luther King Day is as good a time as any to remind ourselves of certain inconvenient problems in America that are unfortunately not subjects for polite discussion. One of them is racial violence.
American women are 11 times more likely to be murdered with guns than women in other high-income countries, and an average of 46 American women are shot to death each month by a current or former husband or boyfriend.
Herein lies a personal story and some of what I learned from it. The story is not just mine. Unfortunately facing mortality applies to all of us.
As we lifted our voices on behalf of America's fallen, we also began to hear a voice. The sounds of lamentation, weeping and great mourning for all of God's children across the world, of every color and religion and age.
I want to slow down the loose use of correlation as a way to prove or disprove that there is a causal relationship between strict gun laws and gun homicide rates. Maybe there is, maybe there isn't. Correlation is not going to answer this question.
