WA State Supreme Court Overturns Ruling On Felon Pistol License :: 05/10/2019

There’s a reason why we have a separate justice system for juveniles. Mostly it’s because kids don’t have all the same tools that adults are supposed to have, so they do colossally dumb things for colossally dumb reasons, but rarely out of any malicious intent. We have to punish them, of course, because it’s vital they learn there are ramifications to their actions. However, in many cases, those juvenile offenders take the hit, shape up, and we never have to worry about them again.

What's really at stake in the Supreme Court's new gun case :: 03/07/2019

When the Supreme Court agreed to hear N.Y. State Rifle & Pistol Assn’ v. The City of New York (N.Y. Rifle & Pistol) in late January, it broke a decade-long reticence on the Second Amendment.
