Following the Chattanooga terror attack, the media seems confused about what had happened or at least why it had happened.

Ted Cruz, however, experiences no such confusion and issued a powerful statement.

The Obama EPA’s “Waters of the U. S.” power grab has come under a lot of scrutiny and resistance, and rightly so. In addition to citizen outrage and push back from Congress, the EPA is now facing two lawsuits filed by the Attorneys General of 16 states.

With transgender issues in the spotlight following the recent revelation by Caitlyn (formerly Bruce) Jenner, it’s unsurprising to learn that a state like Oregon would support state-subsidized sex change operations.

What is surprising to many, including to Oregon voters who did not get a chance to vote on this measure, is that...

Constitutional carry is the means by which Americans are pushing back against government interference with their right to bear arms.  By eliminating the permitting process, Maine has passed a constitutional carry law that makes it legal for residents to carry concealed without a permit.

I don’t know about you, but I need some good news this week.  And there is a happy crumb to report: the House Appropriations Committee has rejected an amendment that would allow the CDC to “study the underlying causes of gun violence” (not that guns are violent in and of themselves,...

Self-described socialist and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has a record of being remarkably supportive of the Second Amendment. 

(Remarkable because he’s a favorite among progressives.)
 
Considering the leftward movement of the Democratic party and their avid support for all sorts of gun control, this could be a potential problem for Sanders.
