  • Harvard Study: Gun Control Is Counterproductive

    Harvard Study: Gun Control Is Counterproductive I've just learned that Washington, D.C.'s petition for a rehearing of the Parker case in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit was denied today. This is good news. Readers will recall in this case that the D.C. Circuit overturned the decades-long ban on gun ownership in the nation's capitol on Second Amendment grounds. However, as my colleague Peter Ferrara explained in his National Review Online article following the initial decision in March, it looks very likely that the United States Supreme Court will take the case on appeal. When it does...

    PRIME Minister Julia Gillard needs to step in and work with the states to ban semi-automatic handguns in response to Sydney's plague of drive-by shootings, a gun control group says. ******* Ms Lee said it was "crazy" that semi-automatic handguns were legal while semi-automatic longarms are banned. "It's an anomaly in the laws that really needs to be addressed," she said.

    It looks like the National Rifle Association is in need of a new place to hold their 2007 Convention. How about having it at my house? Thanks to the Columbus City Council’s implementation of their own so-called “assault weapons ban,” the gun-rights group has decided to take their convention—and the estimated $15 million that comes with it—elsewhere. Members of the City Council and other Columbus-ites are confused and angry. Somehow, these dolts don’t understand why the NRA—an organization that exists solely to protect the rights of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms—would pull their convention from a city that...

    Liberals took their historic defeat in the 2004 elections quite well. They could have reacted with bitterness, rancor and hysteria. Instead they were gracious, and engaged in thoughtful introspection. I’m kidding. Actually, liberals behaved predictably. They’ve spent the past week sneering at red-state residents – remarking on the alleged poverty, stupidity and plain gullibility of Bush country (combined with neo-Marxist cant about how capitalists use faith appeals to control the masses). The more intrepid among them are talking about emigrating to Canada. The more delusional are toying with the idea of secession. Reuters tells us that the day after the...
