Orlando club shooting – Evil exists

By Steve McGough | June 13, 2016 |

Suggesting a ban or extreme restrictions on the inanimate objects used during violent, abhorrent, unimaginable atrocities is an easy way to say you want to “do something.” These wonderful people – with their hearts in the right place – really think more laws, restrictions and just loving everyone will significantly help.

Those arrested moved up to 20 or more guns at a time via Delta flights in the passenger cabin. There are a couple questions you should think about when reading this story. First, why are guns being smuggled to New York? (Hint, it has absolutely nothing to do with restrictive gun laws in New York.) Second, where…

On election day, the Department of Justice released about 65,000 Fast & Furious-related documents subpoenaed more than two years ago by the House Committee on Oversight & Government Reform. The DOJ claimed the documents were privileged, but our friend John Hinderaker over at Power Line doesn’t think so. I’ve got a comment on Attorney General Eric…
