Joe Sobran was my favorite columnist before he died in 2010. He offered more good sense per paragraph than anyone else. In 1993, William F. Buckley publicly fired Sobran from National Review. I had known for three decades that Buckley was the liberal establishment’s token conservative intellectual. That act confirmed it. He had also become […]

In 2013, President Obama tried to get a few ticky-tacky gun control laws through Congress.  He never even got this through the Senate. Now that effort has backfired, big time. The American firearms industry is as healthy as ever, seeing an unprecedented surge that has sent production of guns soaring to more than 10.8 million […]

Leaders of the mainline denominations, as their aging members die off and are not replaced, have decided to speed up the timetable to invisibility. They are coming out in favor of gun control.
