The NRA's strategy is usually to keep a stone-faced silence in the face of gun massacres & wait for them to blow over. I'm glad the NRA decided to make an exception and show up for this CNN town hall tonight. But, from their perspective, it strikes me as a huge miscalculation.

Observations and have been making too. We shouldn’t believe the 2nd Am is what the NRA says it is. (SCOTUS doesn’t.)

If the bump stock debate is anything like the DACA debate, the White House will endorse a ban on bump stocks, but only if it also includes a provision giving a free machine gun to every white guy with a history of domestic violence.

Today, in Silvester v. Becerra, Justice Thomas claimed "If a lower court treated another right so cavalierly, I have little doubt that this Court would intervene." Can you help me generate a list of rights that the courts treat as cavalierly as the 2nd Amendment? I'll go first...

I’ll add the obscure provision known as the Establishment Clause, which as of 2013 permits town boards to conduct sectarian prayers as long as attendees aren’t forcibly converted to Christianity or overtly denigrated for believing otherwise.

The tweeting from the White House today is at an especially fevered and defensive pitch, ranging across PA gerrymandering, this year's congressional elections, Russia, Obama, Hillary and...paramours.
