    Throughout MSNBC’s Friday coverage of student walk-outs across the country to demand gun control, the liberal cable channel’s anchors and correspondent could barely contain their excitement about the prospect of those anti-gun protesters mobilizing to vote pro-gun rights Republicans out of office in the November midterms. “Right now we are walking right past the President’s hotel, actually, on Pennsylvania Avenue. And the students are chanting, ‘Vote him out.’ It’s pretty clear the target of their ire here, the politicians they feel like have not been listening to them,” correspondent Garrett Haake enthusiastically announced while reporting from a protest march in...

    Syracuse, NY -- A Syracuse University student, who had stockpiled ammunition and gun accessories in his downtown apartment, was stopped before carrying out threats of a mass shooting, city police revealed today. Xiaoteng Zhan, 22, was deported back to China by federal agents March 20 as he returned to Syracuse from spring break in Mexico, Syracuse Deputy Police Chief Derek McGork said. Zhan told a friend that the "dark side" had pushed him to buy a gun, bulletproof vest and other items, McGork said, reading from an English translation of their messages. "I might use the gun to cause trouble,"...

    Kashuv is a 16-year-old student survivor of the Valentines Day massacre at a high school in Parkland, Florida. He is a Second Amendment advocate (and apparently a really knowledgeable one).Kyle Kashuv to Piers Morgan: Heres what the Second Amendment stands for. (BPR screenshots) Kyles Twitter takedown started after Morgan falsely claimed the Second Amendment was about arming people as part of a well regulated militia not as a bunch of unregulated Rambos. Kashuv responded by saying: So you dont bother to read Federalist Papers? Not your thing?

    Some weeks, there are just so many things happening that its hard to pick one focus for a column. Todays American crisis mosaic has so many facets that the whole is far worse than any of the parts. Here are six concerns that deserve our attention: 1. The proliferation of sanctuary states and cities that protect undocumented aliens must be addressed. By refusing to help ICE deport undocumented aliens who have committed crimes, they put American citizens and immigrants in danger. The US Supreme Court has already ruled that federal immigration laws supersede state laws in Arizona. Thankfully, California's...

    During briefings as a patrol officer, I scanned the crime reports from the prior week, looking for patterns, trends and changes. If, for example, I discovered an increase in car burglaries on the west side of town, I would ask the simple question: What shifted in the past few weeks to account for the additional crimes? More robberies on the east side? Whats changed? Did someone new move into the area? Did some group of offenders decide to target our city? Now, as a cold-case detective and author, I apply the same approach to a new crime phenomenon: the increase...

But something went wrong over the course of the exchange students stay here and now hes in jail after authorities were alerted to some of his strange behavior and social media postings.

    Not all is as it seems at the organization behind a nationwide grassroots movement that seeks to make the National Rifle Association politically radioactive. Within 24 hours of last Wednesdays mass shooting at a Florida high school that left 17 dead, gun control activists had concocted No NRA Money, an organization behind a national grassroots pledge campaign that seeks to break the NRAs stranglehold that has thwarted meaningful progress on common sense gun policy. But No NRA Moneys claim to be a grassroots movement is questionable. Hidden within the HTML code running No NRA Moneys website is a link to...

    ... The effectiveness of these poised, articulate, well-informed, and seemingly preternaturally mature student leaders of Stoneman Douglas has been vaguely attributed to very specific personalities and talents. Indeed, their words and actions have been so staggeringly powerful, they ended up fueling laughable claims about crisis actors, coaching, and fat checks from George Soros. But there is a more fundamental lesson to be learned in the events of this tragedy: These kids arent freaks of nature. Their eloquence and poise also represent the absolute vindication of the extracurricular education they receive at Marjory Stoneman Douglas. The students of Stoneman Douglas have...

    To follow up on my explosively popular article, Israel Figured Out How to Prevent School Shootings 40 years Ago (thank you, readers), its time to get specific about protecting the schools in this country. While everyone else argues over the impossible, that is, impossible prevention of any kind of violence by rolling back Constitutional rights, we can look to the way Israel protects its schools, and its most treasured possession, its children. Ben Goldstein, an American who made aliyah to Israel, and now serves as volunteer security, and is co-founder of AKRAV Global Security Solutions, described the Israeli method, and...

    There have been numerous reports of students being bullied, pushed to participate in anti-Second Amendment protests they did not believe in, and of being punished for speaking out. The Second Amendment Foundation today announced a project to help students who have been harassed, intimidated or bullied for resisting peer pressure to join the wave of protests against guns and the right to keep and bear arms. "A student's First Amendment rights should not be violated because they support the Second Amendment," said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. "There have been several reports over the past...

Hilliard senior Jacob Shoemaker says school isn't the place for politics, and he wasn't taking sides Wednesday. The district says it's responsible for students' safety and they can't be unsupervised. Jacob's citation for not following instructions was shared online by a friend, prompting a flood of messages to his father. Scott Shoemaker says some people thought his son...
