The Washington Standard

As gun ownership and the number of concealed carry permits have soared under President Obama, who has been dubbed history’s greatest gun salesman, new statistics show that the murder rate has dropped significantly during the same period. While the well-funded gun control lobby has attempted to an image of increased

When I was growing up in New York, pretty regularly we’d hear about a factory truck packed with retail merchandise getting hijacked. Essentially what would happen is a low-level mob guy would stick a gun in the driver’s face when he stopped at a traffic light, and order him out

It is painfully obvious to me, and most of you who will read this article, that our government is not our government any longer. The incestuous relationship between those who wield power in America and the Global Banking Cabal has all but destroyed the very fabric of this once great

The latest round of rubbish flooding our in boxes is an ignorant rant claiming that the Dick Act of 1902 (which respects our Right to be armed) can’t be repealed because to do so would “violate bills of attainder and ex post facto laws”. Who dreams up this stuff? Does

We have been visited recently with several very silly articles which assert that Marco Rubio is a “natural born Citizen” within the meaning of Art. II, §1, cl. 5, U.S. Constitution (ratified 1789), and hence is qualified to be President: Bret Baier (Fox News) asserts that Congress may define (and

No! When you look at it from the perspective of limiting the federal government to its “enumerated powers”, it all becomes very easy and clear. We haven’t been looking at it this way because we are so ignorant of our Constitution that we don’t know that it delegates “enumerated powers”
