  • If firearms were not available, thugs would devise other means to murder

    When are we, as intelligent people, going to stop blaming inanimate metal for the wholesale slaughter occurring on the streets of Chicago?  It is not the weapon at fault but the psychopath pulling the trigger. If firearms were not available, thugs...

    Justice and absurdity tangled in Fla. gun laws: Editorial

    Nan Rich v. Charlie Crist. Why not debate?
    My first question to Nan Rich was, "How did this happen?" How did Charlie Crist, just 18 short months after checking the "D" on his voter-registration form, become the best thing going for the party? This is a guy who once enjoyed being known as...

    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...
  • Mom of imprisoned ex-Marine in Mexico tells supporters to chill out

    Looks as if Andrew Tahmooressi, the former Marine jailed in Mexico after blundering across the border last spring with three loaded guns and 400 rounds of ammunition in his truck, will not be coming home any time soon. On Wednesday, Tahmooressi faced...
  • 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...
  • Kansas goes a little gun crazy with its Second Amendment Protection Act

    The concept would be laughable if there weren't so many people taking it seriously. The idea is that states have the right under the 10th Amendment to unilaterally reject federal laws on issues not expressly reserved for the federal government in the...
  • Palestinians don't blame Hamas for civilian deaths

    As the Gaza conflict has intensified, the Palestinian death toll has surpassed 850, mostly civilians. Add to that 4,000 injured, widespread infrastructure destruction, and 1.8 million Palestinians trapped in an area the size of Manhattan. On the Israeli...
