    In Chicago qualified gun owners are denied permits, but apparently uncontrollable gang bangers with presumably unregistered arms are free to terrorize.  When will Chicago realize it’s not the guns, with restrictive laws on the books, that are...
  • Chicago: A town that won't let you down?

    Frank Sinatra's song about Chicago, "My Kind of Town," "a the town that won't let you down," seems dated in light of last weekend's shooting spree that left 16 dead and dozens wounded in 53 separate incidents. According to the Chicago Tribune, "The...

    One mom takes aim at gun violence

  • Kansas goes a little gun crazy with its Second Amendment Protection Act

  • Residents brace for another violent weekend

     Residents brace for another violent weekend
    Linda Hayes has no plans to venture outside her West Englewood home this weekend, even with a favorable weather report and invitations to several gatherings. Instead, she intends to spend the next 72 hours inside her home, a hostage to the gun...

    John Walsh gets back in the saddle for CNN
    John Walsh stresses that his new series, CNN's "The Hunt," will be different from "America's Most Wanted." "It's going to be the same mission to get the worst of the worst off the street," Walsh said in a phone interview. "It's not going to be as...
  • Sun Valley: John Kerry Video Conference Victim of Bad Reception, Bloomberg Won't Grade De Blasio

  • Mailbag: 'Book of Mormon' is crass and a bore

    Re. "Commentary: Close the book on `Book of Mormon,'" (June 21): Finally, a review of the "Book of Mormon" that hits the nail on the head. James P. Gray's commentary in the Daily Pilot was spot-on. I have been amazed at the praise for the "Book of...
