This week, the House of Representatives is expected to vote on an NRA-backed bill that would do nothing to actually prevent gun sales to known or suspected terrorists. Candidly, it's unbelievable and inexcusable that Republicans are finding more ways to block Congress from keeping guns away from these dangerous individuals.
Many communities comprised primarily of African Americans and Latinos have come to rely on grant funding to fill a variety of basic safety-net needs. These needs should not be held hostage to the politics of the day.
As the stream of Republicans fleeing the Donald Trump candidacy becomes a flood, it does seem the appropriate metaphor to use -- the ships are leaving the sinking rat this time, not the other way 'round.

Amid "rampant speculation" of a Hillary Clinton-Elizabeth Warren ticket to head the Democratic slate after their recent joint campaign appearances, here is another speculation.
My experience has made me conscious of how gun control advocates like myself are failing America, how gun enthusiasts have good points that need to be understood, and how the only successful approach to reducing gun violence in America needs to involve a hell of a lot more initiatives than regulating the sale of guns.
Either Elizabeth Warren just made Hillary Clinton's vice-presidential choice a lot harder or a lot easier, depending on how you see her strategic decision-making process and how much chance you think a Clinton/Warren ticket has of becoming reality.

Donald Trump's name lends itself to all sorts of mashed-up words, but we find it doesn't really work with the big story of the week. British voters decided to take the so-called "Brexit" (or "British exit") from the European Union.

Gun control. The House sit-in. The Senate filibuster. The NRA, GOP, mass shootings. What's it all about? I wanted to find out some more information about the AR-15 since it seems to be the weapon of mass shooters.

You probably think I'm nuts. Just after the Senate has killed two bills that would have modestly restricted gun rights, am I seriously proposing that we tamper with the wording of the Second Amendment?
