Quote Of The Week

"In a despotic government, the only principle by which the tyrant who is to move the whole machine means to regulate and manage the people is fear, by the servile dread of his power.

Yesterday, Governor Wolf and members of the Pittsburgh City Council held a press conference, joined by anti-gun organizations, including Moms Demand Action and CeaseFirePA, where they proposed new anti-gun ordinances, which they even acknowledged are precluded by state law but undaunted by the illegality of such proposals, were going to enact them anyway, in a hope that the courts would elect to usurp the General Assembly’s authority.

George H.W. Bush’s recent death has had the DC chattering classes up all night discussing his legacy and accomplishments.

SCOTUS Agrees To Hear Case That May Ultimately Undermine ATF :: 12/11/2018

One of the biggest problems with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) isn’t that it enforces the law. I mean, it exists explicitly for that purpose, so that’s kind of what it’s supposed to be doing.

A Powerful Dissent Charges Judges Who Casually Uphold Magazine Restrictions With Disrespecting the Second Amendment :: 12/07/2018

Yesterday the U.S. Court of Appeals Court for the 3rd Circuit upheld New Jersey's 10-round limit on gun magazines, echoing five other federal appeals courts that have found such laws to be consistent with the Second Amendment.

Appeals Court Confirms Preemption Applies To Arena Authority :: 12/05/2018
