    Foreign law shouldn't impact American gun-owners-5



    Washington writer Ken Klukowski says the recent appointment of Harold Koh to be State Department legal advisor should not only have gun owners concerned, but alarm American who want to retain the nation's sovereignty. 

    Koh, recently the dean of Yale Law School, now becomes the top U.S. authority on international law, and the top advisor to the president and secretary of state about America's obligations and treaty commitments with the United Nations and other countries.

    The Senate Judiciary Committee voted Tuesday to send Judge Sonya Sotomayor's Supreme Court nomination to the full Senate, moving her one step closer to becoming the first Hispanic on the highest court in the land.

    The 13-6 vote was mostly along party lines. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina was the lone Republican to support Sotomayor, voting with all 12 Democrats to push President Obama's first Supreme Court nominee forward. 

    The full Senate is expected to vote on Sotomayor's nomination next week, and confirmation is virtually certain.

  • July 22, 2009 'report and small arms survey' masks anti-gun agenda-7


    David Codrea in rips a recent "report" and "survey" published on for blatant errors in fact that belie a bias that, essentially, says many anti-gun zealots haven't a clue what they are talking about when it comes to firearms and, sadly, when it comes to living in a Democray with a Constitution.

    The National Rifle Association has shot back at a new Omaha law that requires anyone selling a gun to get fingerprinted.

    The NRA sent a letter to city council members in which the association said the law is an attack on law-abiding gun owners. But city officials said the law, which narrowly passed in a 4-3 vote, will help reduce crime.

    Daley's armed bodyguard proves mayor's hypocrisy-5



    David Codrea writes in that there's a lot of hypocrisy in the Windy City, where your Constitutional right to protect yourself is in danger but, rest assured, Chicago's elite don't have that same fear.

    "You would be hard pressed to find a more anti-gun politician than Chicago Mayor Richard Daley," Codrea writes. "Which makes the headline from a Second Amendment Foundation press release an interesting example of 'Do as I say, not as I do' elitism: Daley's bodyguard catches killer."

    Sotomayor Hearings-2


    Jim Geraghty in National Review knifes through the smokescreen created by Sonia Sotomayor's "wise Latina" brouhaha to ask one truly, crystal clear question: Who is this woman?

    "If you knew absolutely nothing about Sonia Sotomayor before Tuesday’s confirmation hearing and judged her entirely on her answers, you could easily come to the conclusion that she had been nominated by Pres. George W. Bush and was likely to sail through confirmation with the strong support of conservatives in the legal community," he writes.
