Jim Irvine, chairman of the Buckeye Firearms Association in Columbus, Ohio, expressed confidence that Ohio will shortly join the growing number of states allowing concealed carry permit holders (CCW for concealed-carry-weapon) on school grounds and campuses around the country.

In announcing the death of Pete Seeger who passed away on Monday night at the age of 94, the mainstream media applauded his lifetime as a folk singer, singing, as the Washington Post put it, “songs of love, peace, brotherhood, work and protest” and calling him a “20th-century troubadour” known for popularizing “If I Had a Hammer”, “Where Have All the Flowers Gone” and especially the “anthem of the civil rights movement”: “We Shall Overcome.”
The Post noted only briefly Seeger’s close relationship with

The brief announcement on the U. S. Marine Corps social networking site was enough to set off another round in the gender wars: “Corps postpones pull-ups for women & female Marines…”
The reason was simple: despite being given more than a year’s warning that pull-ups would be the only option testing females’ upper body strength in the Corps’ Physical Fitness Test (PFT) starting on January 1, only 45 percent of those testing at Paris Island, S.C., met the bare of minimum of
The front page of Sunday’s New York Times led with “When the Right to Bear Arms Includes the Mentally Ill”, a nearly 5,000-word essay by two journalists amping up the volume in the latest attack on the Second Amendment. The motive was clear from the beginning:
Early Sunday morning, following four days of heavy negotiations between Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council (the US, Russia, China, the United Kingdom, and France – plus Germany), an agreement was announced which was touted as lifting sanctions against Iran in exchange for a reduction in Iran’s efforts to build their nuclear capability.

After three days of intense negotiating (we are told), Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov have agreed to force Assad to give up his chemical weapons, or else. These are the weapons, of course, that didn’t exist just a week ago, but now we know
The diplomatic agreement reached on Saturday between Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, following three days of intense negotiations in Geneva, provides support for America’s enemies while giving President Obama a little breathing room.

As the President tries to rally support for his Senate resolution to bomb Syria to teach Assad a lesson, he is sitting on an ice-cube that is melting.
On Tuesday night, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted underwhelmingly, 10-7, to support a watered-down version of what the White House really wanted: authorization to do what it wanted in Syria. Instead, the language limited his adventure to
Following the informal meeting between President Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin, Putin made clear that he would continue to provide all manner of military aid to Syria’s President Assad. Such aid would include

According to senior officials in the Obama administration, the attack “would probably last no more than
