An Arapahoe County civil jury ruled in May that Cinemark wasnít liable for the shooting that left 12 people dead and 70 others. Lawyers for Cinemark then...

    One of the reforms that was passed in Kansas in 2013 was a ban on government defenseless victim zones, unless they were enforced.†† The law requires that if a government entity bans law abiding citizens from carrying guns on their premises, then they must enforce that ban for criminals who would ignore mere signs.† Rep. Forest Knox, who sponsored the bill, explained its purpose: †ďIt is about safety,Ē the Altoona Republican told the Emporia Gazette. ďYouíre not afraid of illegal guns that are already there but youíre afraid of law-abiding citizens who are carrying guns?

    Earth will be able to host life for just another 1.75 billion years or so, according to a study published on 18 September in Astrobiology1. The method used to make the calculation can also identify planets outside the Solar System with long Ďhabitable periodsí, which might be the best places to look for life. The habitable zone around a star is the area in which an orbiting planet can support liquid water, the perfect solvent for the chemical reactions at the heart of life. Too far from a star and a planetís water turns to permanent ice and its carbon...

The Venn Diagram at the left is my representation of some groups of people in the United States. The overwhelmingly larger group is the sensible, law abiding majority that wouldn't shoot you if you made a really bad cup of coffee, or cut you off in traffic. Even if you stole the parking place one of these people were turning their car around to get, they would not gun you down. These people...
