Ninth Circuit Upsets California's Anti-Gun Applecart

In a 2-1 ruling, a three-judge panel of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has struck down California concealed carry rules. The reason? They violate the Second Amendment of the Constitution- the one that ends with "right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

Like many of the Olympic sports, it originates from a military background. In fact, the...

President to press his anti-gun agenda "with or without Congress"

Last year, in the wake of the shootings in Newtown, Conn., Barack Obama gave a State of the Union performance that was filled with theatrical pandering.
