Spokane, Wash. • Shanna Torp has never been uneasy around guns. Her father, a retired trucker, kept a gun in the cab when he was on the road. When Torp, a debt collector from Post Falls, Idaho, goes camping, she takes a rifle to ward off cougars and bears. But after her mother died following

The Georgia Senate runoff races in the first week of January decide control of the Senate. Crucially, they also decide the ability for the left to pass legislation supporting bans on the sale and possession of AR-15 rifles.

The so-called conservatives typically decide against individuals in favor of large economic interests. Arguments are made over whether judges should ascertain the exact meaning of the text of the Constitution or the intention of the authors. And
A number of pro-Second Amendment organizations and two individual citizens are suing the state of New Jersey over “draconian” restrictions on carrying a firearm for self-defense. The litigation is also taking on the state’s application process for concealed carry permits. “The right to bear arms must be available to all citizens, not just a privileged
“I just think we’re very cynical people, and cynical people tend to be right more often than not.” Whether or not you personally agree with Trevor Moore’s observation, the comedian’s philosophy is all over the work of “The Whitest Kids U’ Know” (WKUK), a sketch comedy group whose self-titled TV show (2007-2011) has become a cult
As the 1970s drew to a close, the Republican Party confronted an existential crisis.

My dad died in December of last year. In my arms, in my home, and in a moment. Before the calendar turned and the ball fell, before cities burned and before a virus from China threatened our lives and livelihoods. But even then, he knew how fickle safety and security could be. He didn’t partake
Despite all the media attention devoted to the impact of presidential candidates on the stock market, history shows there is little impact. A 2004 study by the Federal Reserve found no significant correlation in either risk or return across presidential cycles.

At an outdoor fundraising dinner at the upscale Frigate’s restaurant in Melbourne last month, Alton Edmond’s campaign manager Josephine Hunter compared her boss’s effort to unseat Brevard County Sheriff to the biblical tale of David versus Goliath in introductory remarks.
