Numerous sheriffs have subsequently taken a stand against the red…

Real life is not Utopia, it is an experience where decent people are constantly under threat by people with bad intentions. And evil can strike wherever you are, whether that is in a school or university, a church, mosque, or synagogue, or a night club in Paris or a music concert in Las Vegas. Evil can strike at…

Report: Pelosi Claims ‘Epidemic of Gun Violence’ Even as Murder Rate Falls

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is pushing the mantra of an “epidemic of gun violence” even as the overall murder rate falls. Moreover, the decline comes as more and more Americans own and carry firearms for self-defense.

On December 4, 2013, Breitbart News reported that CRS…
