    Here’s an excerpt from Nick Bunker’s book on Franklin (in 1729 where Benjamin Franklin was writing in his Pennsylvania Gazette. about the late NY royalist Governor Burnett’s anti-liberty tendencies): The corrosive effects of power to corrupt men into despots is still an issue today as it was...

    Open carry permit/concealed

    I've got my Texas LTC and remember driving thru TN - that it is dependent on the officer asking to see the license. So you don't think Military ID would work? Hopefully it lists your legal name....

    An Introduction to Constitutional Law. 100 SCOTUS cases everyone should know

    You've got Nigel Farage in the England right now making this very same point - do away with the House of Lords and replace it with a Senate. English Parliament ignored the vote of the people in 2016 to LEAVE the EU. PM David Cameron said results of Referendum w/b final and binding....except...

    Hamburg Wal-Mart. OC'er tresspassed from ALL Wal-Marts.

    Good Samaritan [?] cited going armed to terror

    Would NC law allow him to shoot at the robber in his/her car? Robber is in control of a deadly weapon. No charges then.

    BREAKING: Confirmed active shooter at Walmart near Cielo Vista Mall, El Paso

    Wife was visiting family in ELP, they were in Old Mesilla when this happened. A lot of El Pasoans blame it on Trump making such a big deal about illegals. They have the wall now, which dropped auto theft by about 80%, but I guess they are not smart enough to uunderstand their democrat US reps...

    el paso shooting (talking about facebook/media coverage)

    From family in El Paso I understand the shooter ran out of bullets, then was captured. Reports of 1-3,000 people in the store, since it is down the highway from Fort Bliss, you would think there w/b some off duty military carrying, let alone folks with concealed carry permits.

    4 dead, including shooter, during attack at Gilroy Garlic Festival.

    Fox News said the shooter, a young cis-male dressed in camo, got in to the secure and police protected gun-free festival with a semi-automatic rifle, through a cut in the unguarded but 100% post-consumer recycled and carbon neutral double-strand 8’ tall chicken-wire back fence. Gilroy police...

    Got Carded at WaWa

    In TX your DL has encoded on the magstrip - DOB, Date of Issue, address and a few other things. I think a few things less than what is actually printed on the license, audit # for one. Also the DOB is embossed on the card in raised #s too. I like that credit cards limit your loss to $50 if...

    Who remembers "Waco"... the other one? With Twin Peaks.

    The ballistics has never been released. After 200 charged with murder. New DA probably did not want to have any discovery by defendants attorneys. Not really sure how many were killed & injured by rifle fire, but only the Texas DPS, Sheriff & deputies and I think Waco police were in...

    5 SHOT AND 3 KILLED AFTER HOMEOWNER OPENS FIRE ON SUSPECTS IN EAST HOUSTON

    Didn’t see the caption. What is curious is the quote “...the homeowner defended himself when the suspects entered the home...”. Guy has an AK-47 and lets guys come inside his fence and get inside his house b4 you can raise your AK?

    5 SHOT AND 3 KILLED AFTER HOMEOWNER OPENS FIRE ON SUSPECTS IN EAST HOUSTON

    Growing up I went to church about a mile from there. An okay neighborhood has gotten a lot rougher in 30 years. Still absolutely no discussion about homeowner's 1) occupation, 2) did he have a pistol or rifle or shotgun, 3) did police question the 'ladies crying down the block' - I suppose...

    Amanda Chase R-Chesterfield Open Carries on Va. Senate Floor

    ‘I’ve been called a ‘badass,’” she told The Post. “It empowers women,” she added. “I jokingly call it my ERA.” I like her - I suppose Chesterton is proud of her representation.

    Armed bystanders shoot at shoplifters in Marysville, disabling their vehicle, then disappear.
