  • 'Stand your ground' law goes too far

    'Stand your ground' law goes too far
    You can't say we weren't warned. Back in 2005, opponents of Florida's first-of-its-kind "stand your ground" law said it wouldn't be long before we'd see shootouts in the streets — all in the name of self-defense. Arguments over something as...
  • Reckoning With Emotions' Powerful Political Pull

    Reckoning With Emotions' Powerful Political Pull
    During Wednesday's debate on new gun laws, Sen. John Kissel rose and began a lengthy set of remarks with two anecdotes. First, the Enfield Republican spoke movingly of hugging his youngest son, Tristan, on the day of the Newtown massacre, one day before...
  • 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....
  • Rick Perry's comeback headed off at the pass

    Rick Perry's comeback headed off at the pass
    It was all going so well for Texas Gov. Rick Perry — until the indictment. His efforts to move past a disastrous 2012 presidential run that had become a reliable punch line for a senior moment seemed to be working. He's dropped a few pounds and...

     McManus: Do-nothing Congress does something

    NRA slam on gun-control advocate Shannon Watts backfires
    It's hard to imagine what the National Rifle Association thought they'd gain by turning Moms Demand Action founder Shannon Watts into a paper doll with a feather duster. "They seem to think real moms and real women just cook, clean and use rotary...
  • If doctors can't ask about guns, what about pools, booze, cigarettes?

    Now that a federal appeals court has upheld Florida's infamous "Docs vs. Glocks" law, which restricts physicians from questioning patients (or parents) about gun ownership, what's to stop other special interests from getting their own versions of this...
  • 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...
  • When government uses secrecy to deny rights

    When government uses secrecy to deny rights
    It's a classic Orwellian nightmare: The government decides to deny you a right it extends to other people, but it won't tell you why and it won't tell you what you can do about it. You're stuck in purgatory, effectively convicted without being tried...
  • Muzzling doctors about guns is bad medicine for kids

    Muzzling doctors about guns is bad medicine for kids
    It's a free country, folks are wont to say. So says the Bill of Rights' guarantee to Americans. We can worship how we like. We can peaceably gather when we choose. We can bear and keep AK-47s. And we can say what we darn well please. Unless, that...

    Rich holds true to principles — dooming her chances
    TALLAHASSEE — Maybe Nan Rich should engineer her own political metamorphosis. She could hold a news conference, tear up her Democratic voter-registration card, go independent and demand to be let into the gubernatorial general-election debates....
