Actually, this law wasn’t intended to punish crime victims, that’s the result of an ideology that demonizes legal gun owners–even to the point that they are considered more dangerous than violent sexual predators with known criminal records:

On Sunday, Governor Pat Quinn signed Illinois House Bill 1189, a law that will, among other...

Steve Flesher has an interesting post over at American Thinker about “rehabilitating” Sarah Palin, or more specifically, how she can help rehabilitate the GOP.

Goodness knows, the GOP needs all the help it can get.  Between the very public “war” between Chris Christie and Rand Paul, the fall from grace of Marco...

Ted Cruz is urging Republicans in Congress to fight to defund the ObamaCare Tax train wreck and stated that he feels many in the GOP are too frightened to do so. Apparently, the 1995-1996 shutdowns were such a disaster for the GOP that many “top” Republicans are worried about another one. ...

Ilya Somin has an interesting article on 9-0 Supreme Court rulings:

Those of us who follow Supreme Court decisions spend most of our time debating the contentious issues that divide justices 5-4 along predictable ideological lines. Often, that’s where the loudest public debates are as well. Just consider the recent rulings on...

First the Teamsters, UFCW, and UNITE-HERE expressed their belated disapproval of the ObamaCare Tax monstrosity, and now the IRS employee union wants to be exempted from Obamacare.  The Teamsters, et al., made points that we’ve been making since 2009, points they willfully ignored...

Yesterday, McClatchy reported on Pelosi’s newest divisive endeavor: an economic agenda for women.  After all, we all know that women are not part of the economic fabric of this nation, that we all secretly aspire to be government-dependent Julias whose “health care” needs are those related only to reproduction.  Apparently this...

Last week, Professor Jacobson wrote about “Rubio’s biggest problem in 2016“:

When did we start measuring the “success” of Congress based on the number of laws it passes?  Seriously.  I’m asking: when?  I don’t really remember the moment or the year or even the decade, but at some point, Americans got into our heads that the only successful Congress was a “productive”...

Those of us who have been following Andrew Branca’s excellent coverage of the Zimmerman trial here on LI weren’t at all surprised by the verdict.  Indeed, we’d have been surprised by anything else; however, leftists are busy little bees, working their race-baiting denial-of-facts-and-law nonsense with a disconcerting fervor.
