A man has shot himself to death very near to the White House. How does this happen? How did an armed person get so close to the White House, when the entire DC area is a “gun-free zone?”
Some states intend to “explore” ways to block those on terror watch lists from buying guns. Already, according to this story, the state of New Jersey blocks people on the list from purchasing guns, something which would seem to be unconstitutional. Consider the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution:
A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
Owning a gun is a Constitutional right, not just a privilege, like driving a car. In addition, the Constitution requires “due process”, which is not something that occurs when someone is added to terror watch lists by anonymous bureaucrats.

Global warming did NOT cause the Islamic terror attack in California, nor did “strain,” desperation, or a lack of food.

Poverty did NOT cause the Islamic terror attack in CA.
Drought did NOT cause the Islamic terror attack in CA.

After the terror attack of 9/11/01, the people of this country rallied around the city and state of New York and their people. Now they have elected a governor who, like fellow Democrat Barack Hussein Obama II, seems to despise and feel disdain for many of his fellow citizens. Is this going to be Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Phil Robertson moment? Will Cuomo get the Paula Deen treatment?
A few days ago, Cuomo said something that’s completely outrageous for any governor to say, but especially for the governor of a state that collects a lot of money from tourism and businesses via taxes.

On Tuesday, the CEO of Starbucks, Howard Schultz, published an open letter attempting to explain his company’s latest approach to the “open carry” issue. The company finds itself in an awkward position. Pro-open-carry individuals have staged “Starbucks Appreciation Days” at some Starbucks locations. During these events, participants openly carried their guns. In response, anti-gun activists have staged anti-open-carry events and put pressure on Starbucks, seeking to have the company ban guns from their stores.
