America's liberals were never going to fight fair in Supreme Court battle

Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court has undoubtedly moved the idea of the nation’s top court operating as an originalist judiciary from a conservative dream to an anticipated reality.

Should black gun owners be afraid to exercise their Second Amendment rights?

One thing I've always enjoyed about the Second Amendment community is the sense of family. Whether you're at a shooting range getting in some target practice, at a gun show to find your next treasure, or in the field for a hunt, there is always a sense of camaraderie among gun owners that I really enjoy. The great thing about families is that they tend to stick together. We may have our internal...
