NR: “4th Circuit Runs Roughshod over Heller and Second Amendment”

Lots of people are asking my opinion of the Federal 4th Circuit upholding of Maryland’s facially unconstitutional so-called “assault weapons” ban. Simple truth is, Charles C.W. Cooke’s already hit it out of the park on this one.  I concur with his post on the subject entirely. Here’s a taste, but please do go read the …

Cooke: “America’s Founding Changed Human History Forever”

From Charles C.W. Cooke at National Review Online: Today is my son’s first Independence Day. He doesn’t know that, of course, because he’s only three-and-a-half months old. But my wife and I do, and we’ve attempted to mark the occasion nevertheless — in loco filius, if you will. As such, Jack will be dressed today …

Cooke: “Forget Manipulative Editing — Katie Couric’s Team Likely Violated Federal Law”

More great stuff from Charles C.W. Cooke at National Review: The delicious irony of gun-control advocates breaking laws in an effort to prove they don’t exist The plot thickens. A couple of weeks ago, it was reported that Stephanie Soechtig, the director of a Katie Couric–fronted gun-control infomercial titled Under the Gun, had selectively edited …

Cooke: “The Great Equalizer”

This fantastic 2A piece from Charles C.W. Cooke at National Review (now an Americophilic gun-owner in the Tri-State area with an American-born anchor baby) is from 2014, but it’s also timeless: Civil rights and the Second Amendment In her harrowing 1892 treatise on the horrors of lynching in the post-bellum American South, the journalist, suffragist, …

Cooke: “Even Obama Understands the Second Amendment”

Usual great stuff from Charles C.W. Cooke: As one might expect, I put little stock in the idea that Barack Obama “believes” in the Second Amendment in any meaningful philosophical way. Nevertheless, the president is by no means a stupid man, and, regardless of his personal ideological preferences, he probably has at least a working …

Cooke: “President Obama Has Let His Emotion Get the Better of His Judgment”

More great stuff from Charles C.W. Cooke over at National Review: Arguendo, let’s presume that all these [Obama’s] changes are legal (given, how tightly the laws are written, I’m skeptical). Has Obama lost his mind? This is a man, remember, who is supposed to be admirably dispassionate; a man who is supposed to understand how …

Cooke: “Why Would Anyone Want a Firearm?”

More great stuff from Charles C.W. Cooke at National Review: Of all the ill-considered tropes that are trotted out in anger during our ongoing debate over gun control, perhaps the most irritating is the claim that the Constitution may indeed protect firearms, but it says “nothing at all about bullets.” On its face, this is …

Cooke: “The right to bear arms isn’t up for debate”

More from that brilliant defender of the Second Amendment, soon-to-be American citizen Charles C.W. Cooke, writing in the Washington Post: When debating the wisdom of the Constitution’s Second Amendment, the media tends to start from the presumption that the question is purely scientific, and that the answers can — and should — be derived from …

NR: A Progressive Guide to Thanksgiving Conversation

More great stuff from Charles C.W. Cooke at National Review: In the great progressive spirit, here are a few tips on how to talk to — and morally improve — your family this Thanksgiving: 1. Your crazy uncle complains in passing that the construction on Redlands Avenue is limiting the flow of traffic to his …
