Sign - Texas - Holster Guns

When the Texas Legislature passed a campus carry bill during the 2015 legislative session, part of the law allowed the state’s universities to create rules designating certain areas of campus to remain gun-free, as long as those rules were not thwarting the law’s goals and making it impossible to carry a gun...

Last month, we interviewed children’s authoress, Amelia Hamilton. Her reimagined renditions of well-loved fairy tales, published by the National Rifle Association, have raised more than a few eyebrows.

In Hamilton’s versions, the characters, like Red Riding Hood, are armed. The result? Granny doesn’t get eaten, and everyone lives happily ever...

Police shooting study WaPo

The Washington Post reports on a new study that suggests racial bias motivates police to fatally shoot black suspects at a disproportionally high rate.  That study, entitled “Fatal Shootings By US Police Officers in 2015: A Bird’s Eye View,” is published in the once well-respected scientific journal Nature.

The latest in the NRA’s Freedom’s Safest Place video series features Charlie Daniels, who starts out with a provocative statement:

Good thing he limited “weak-kneed Ivy League” to “friends” of Obama. Otherwise I’d take great offense.
