  • Mental illness and guns have created a national epidemic

    Before day's end, 86 Americans who were alive yesterday will be dead from gun violence. One of us dies from a bullet every 17 minutes. That statistic lends a certain futility to the anguished plea of Richard Martinez: "Not one more!" He made this...
  • Bondi will lose this battle

    I must disagree with Attorney General Pam Bondi's assessment that "Florida's important policy determinations should be left to Florida's citizens." Had the U.S. Supreme Court allowed this thinking, certain Southern states would still have bans on...
  • Competing visions in Md. attorney general's race

    Competing visions in Md. attorney general's race
    If state Sen. Brian Frosh has his way, voters will pick Maryland's next attorney general based on experience — his 28 years in the General Assembly, 11 of them as a committee chairman who pushed through measures such as the state's new gun control...

    Hogan for governor  [Editorial]
    Republican primary voters are blessed with the deepest field of candidates they've had for governor in a generation — four men who each bring compelling stories to their quests to replace Gov. Martin O'Malley. David Craig is the teacher turned...

  • Review: 'The Second Amendment' by Michael Waldman

    Review: 'The Second Amendment' by Michael Waldman
    In the 1980s, New York senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan famously said that everyone is entitled to his own opinions but not to his own facts. More recently, philosopher-comic Stephen Colbert rejected such a confining, narrow view: "Who's Britannica to tell...
  • GOP hopefuls angle for votes in televised forum

    GOP hopefuls angle for votes in televised forum
    As early voting got underway Thursday in the primary race for governor, the four Republicans competing for the GOP nomination jockeyed to present themselves as the most qualified to take on a Democrat in November. The candidates taped a final...
  • Why we need background checks on more gun sales

    Whenever I write about guns, I expect my mailbag to fill up. Today is no exception after I wrote, "Our obsession with guns is killings us." Two questions from readers keep coming up. One has to do with whether gun sales at gun shows and over the...
  • More guns is not the answer to fight gun violence

    As the National Rifle Association continues to stand behind its belief that more guns, not fewer, will solve the national epidemic of gun violence, I can only shake my head woefully and point to the recent killings in Las Vegas and Oregon. In the...

    Recent Shootings Renew Guns Debate, But Deep Divisions Remain
    Recent school shootings have refueled a national debate on firearms regulations and led gun-control advocates who had unsuccessfully pushed for stricter laws in response to the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting to renew calls for legislative...
