Barack Obama Confesses Hatred of the Second Amendment

I don’t understand how a man can be elected for office when he doesn’t believe in one of the fundamental rights acknowledged in the Constitution.

The Atlantic: Locking Up People for Mental Illness Won’t Stop Killers

Jeff Deeney, a Philadelphia-area social worker, wrote a piece that not only addresses the second-guessing that many people are doing regarding Elliot Rodger’s murder spree and suicide, but deals with a strategy that the NRA has been endorsing to some extent since the Sandy Hook mass shooting.
