In 1999 sociologist Barry Glassner published his national bestseller, The Culture of Fear, about the hidden forces that manipulate us in the name of p...
CLEVELAND: Goodyear Satire Co-- In sports news, the NRA Finals ended in victory as the Senate blocked four gun control measures supported by a 70% mi...
As we see the casualties mount with each new shooting, the one question gun advocates and gun opponents should both be asking, is: is there a way to save even one life, without threatening each person's ability to defend their own?
Don't worry. Donald has lots of prominent Americans, representing a broad and diverse spectrum of America, who've endorsed him and can be expected to campaign for him. Here's just a few of those who are likely to stump for Trump. With these folks in his corner, how can he lose?
How interested is NRA in saving lives? The answer is, I guess they're not. How interested is the NRA in selling guns no matter what the cost in human lives?
Mr. Malone, are you the mailman who wants to help deliver the news that some sanity needs to be injected into our gun culture? Or are you the gunman whose silence helps perpetuate the killing? The shot clock's running.
Traveling from city to city in the U.S. and having the gut wrenching task of asking people to relive their most heartbreaking moments, I began to see through the smoke and mirrors the NRA has so masterfully created.
At a press conference early Friday morning, National Rifle Association Executive Vice-President Wayne LaPierre broke down into uncontrollable sobbing when he started talking to reporters about "all the guns that won't get sold after people fail Obama's background checks."
Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the National Rifle Association, has famously said "the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy...
Discovery Communications announced today the launch of Baby's Got a Gun, a new reality television series coming to American homes this Spring, from the team at TLC who catapulted the nation's sassiest sweetheart to fame in Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
We don't understand why a presidential contender like Senator Bernie Sanders voted in favor of a law called the Protection of Legal Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which gun lobbyists wrote to prevent people like us from holding gun dealers accountable in court.
Until we tame the power of the NRA, we can expect more killings, a part of the deadly daily diet of murders throughout America committed by angry gun-toting people whose "freedom" to own weapons of mass destruction that Wayne LaPierre defends.
Our latest mass shooting in Oregon - which did NOT occur in a gun-free zone - is just the latest reminder that good guys with guns, as good as their intentions might be, are oftentimes no match for bad guys with guns.
There are good things about testosterone, like the way it builds strong bones and muscles, or makes guys grow sexy chest hair. But I'm seeing a pattern to violence and aggression and the clouded judgment that unleashes that angry poison onto the world, namely that it is usually male.
In response to sexual violence, we too often hear the hateful and self-serving phrase "they were asking for it." Now, in the wake of mass shootings, gun apologists have taken to publicly and loudly importing this shameful, victim-blaming tactic.
It is not possible to know what Wayne LaPierre will say if and when he holds a press conference to help the country get through this latest gun-inspired tragedy. It is entirely possible that he will suggest that to insure the safety of worshippers, armed guards be placed in every church in the nation.
