    Pigeon shoot bill got buried by frightened PA legislators

  • Pigeon Shoot Ban Buried

        Lehigh County Executive complained last week that the commissioners were guilty of some "dumb government tricks," including voting for a tax cut in a budget with a structural deficit.     Our state legislators have perfected all kinds of...
  • Pigeon Shoot Ban Vote Today

  • With gun in the mix, mental illness turns to tragedy

    Colby Sue Weathers killed her father at the insistence of the voices in her head. She shot him once in the back as he sat at the family's dining room table. A paranoid schizophrenic, Weathers had used the money from her disability check to buy the...
  • In 'Bizarro World,' gun laws actually make sense

    Last week, I woke up in Bizzaro World. I'm sure the good folks of Boston, or just about anyone who has ever visited Beantown, would dispute that characterization. But, I was in town for a National Association of Black Journalists convention, and the...
  • Partial debate sounds better than none

    Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to welcome you today to the Democratic gubernatorial debate between former Gov. Charlie Crist and former state Sen. Nan Rich. Yes, yes, I know. Crist has refused to debate Rich. Crist, the supposed tough guy who got the...
  • Why I Don't Keep A Gun In My House

    After the Newtown massacre, a friend asked me if I kept a gun in my house. No, I do not, for several reasons. The first is personal experience. The last time I had a gun in my place of residence was in Vietnam. In early 1970, my Army unit moved to the...
  • Here's The Answer — Don't Give Men Guns

    When we look at the acts of almost unspeakable gun violence making news and breaking hearts, it doesn't take Rachel Maddow or Wayne LaPierre to target the fact that men are responsible. We don't need to hit the archives for historical documentation....
