History repeats itself, often in the most tragic of ways, and that was the case May 18 at the Santa Fe High School in Texas.
That history will continue to repeat itself, as progressives and conservatives advance their typical positions, politicians pose as concerned and nothing really happens. And all of this will, quite unfortunately, happen again and again before it is all over.

Florida was the first state to enact a "stand your ground" law. Under the law, a person is allowed to use lethal force — and has no duty to retreat — if they believe they are in danger. Since it was enacted in 2005, the law has drawn high-profile controversies, including the shooting of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin.

The Obama Administration’s Hypocritical Pretext for Spying on the Trump Campaign

As I argued in my weekend column, it is hard to imagine a more idle question than whether the Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign. Of course it did. If you want to argue the point, imagine what the professors, pundits, and pols would have said had the Bush administration run an informant against three Obama 2008 campaign officials, including the campaign co-chairman; any hair-splitting about whether that technically constituted “spying” would be met by ostracism from polite society.

Do Americans under 30 really hate guns?

Earlier this year, victims of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting engaged in class walkouts to protest the supposed “easy access” to guns after a disturbed gunman’s six-minute murder spree. They were openly embraced by gun control advocates and anti-gun politicians, prominently featured and promoted by the media, and lauded as the “fierce voice” of the next generation that would “finally act” on gun control and maybe even turn elections.

Rasmussen Reports on Tuesday released a stunning survey result that reveals a whopping 72 percent of likely U.S. voters think Congress spends too much time on vacation, while only 12 percent disagree and 16 percent aren’t certain.

This comes as yet another member of Congress has announced he is not running for re-election so “he can focus on recovery” from alcoholism. Republican Rep. Thomas Garrett of Virginia is the 44th Republican to announce retirement or departure from Capitol Hill at the end of the current term, according to the Daily Progress.

A Republican congresswoman and candidate to become Tennessee’s governor reportedly claimed pornography was one of several causes of mass school shootings during a meeting with religious leaders last week. Representative Diane Black offered several reasons for why she believed shootings continue to take place around the country, pointing to “deterioration of the family" and the lack of a "good support system,” as well as the failure to spot signs that a potential shooter may present, HuffPost reported Tuesday citing a recording of the meeting.

Among my friends here in deepest blue Los Angeles, I am likely the only openly conservative Republican some of them know. And as a veteran, I am probably the closest contact they’ve had with the military since sitting in the theater to watch American Sniper. So when events like the Las Vegas shootings occurred, knowledge of my personal history and political views would temporarily displace the usual Trump/Russia collusion banter and lead to genuinely uncomfortable conversations about guns.

Responsible gun owners defended themselves, but you didn't hear it in the news. Instructor Andee Reardon joins host Rob Morse to talk about three new examples.

First story- You hear a crash from the front of the house. You walk into the hallway to see mom’s ex-boyfriend heading for the bedroom where your younger brother and sister sleep.
Second story- A customer walks up and demands the money from the cash register. You back away and then the robber pushes you.
Third story- You don’t ride any longer, so you want to sell your motorcycle. You meet the buyer and his friend. The buyer draws a handgun and demands the keys.

What would you do in these situations? Text and podcast available at the link. (14 minutes)

Vermont Gun Freedoms Shot Down—From Within

From the beginning, the state of Vermont has been running an experiment in Second Amendment-style freedom, as Vermont is the original “constitutional carry” state. If someone can legally carry a handgun, then they don’t need a permit to do so in Vermont. At the same time, and by almost every measure, Vermont has long been one of the safest states in the nation. This drove the anti-gun Left crazy, as Vermont was proof in New England, of all places, that freedom works.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.... We've been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. Well, if no one among us is capable of government himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else? All of us together, in and out of government, must bear the burden. The solutions we seek must be equitable, with no one group singled out to pay a higher price. — Ronald Reagan
