Unless you have been living under a rock, you probably know that Hillary Clinton has been relentlessly promoting her new book that chronicles her tenure as U.S. Secretary of State.

A little over a year ago, Governor John Hickenlooper of Colorado signed into law a host of gun control legislation.

The Second Amendment, as affirmed by the Heller and McDonald cases, protects the right of American citizens to possess guns regardless of geographic boundaries within the U.S., yet cities like Washington, D.C. and Chicago make gun ownership very difficult. Seeing how these cities have violent crime rates higher than other U.S. cities, you would think they would make it […]

It would have been interesting to see if the television ad that Daniel Defense wanted to run during the 2014 Super Bowl would have caused the hubbub in elite liberal circles that the National Football League clearly feared it would. It may well have, but we’ll never know, for sure, since the NFL decided that […]

With the election results in, it’s important to remember that the same voters who gave President Obama four more years in office by a narrower margin than he won in 2008 also produced a divided Congress. Democrats remain in control of the Senate by a few votes. Republicans hold a solid majority in the House. […]

Remember in school when you had to read a note aloud if you were caught passing it to another person? Well, it seems President Obama long ago wrote a straightforward and frank note regarding his views on the Second Amendment. And now it’s sparking interest on the auction circuit, the equivalent of being read aloud. […]

To Silver State Assemblyman William Horne, D-Las Vegas, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, goes the silver medal for intolerance when it comes to the public expressing its opposition to more gun control in Nevada.

According to the most recent crime data released by the FBI for 2011, violent crime is down for the fifth straight year. When one drills down into the data, the long-term trend is astounding: Violent crime has fallen 65 percent since 1993. While there are many factors in the mix, it is incontrovertible that firearms […]

Recently on the campaign trail in Iowa, the president told his audience: “Trust matters. Iowa, you know me. I say what I mean and mean what I say. You could take a videotape of the things I say, (from) 10 years ago, 12 years ago, and you’d say this is the same guy.” Since he […]

In less than a month we will know if the Oct. 11 vice presidential debate made any difference in the 2012 election, but we think the bullying and condescending approach of the incumbent vice president itself speaks volumes about the attitude of the Obama administration toward those who hold different political and policy views.
