Question of the Day: Are They REALLY Coming For Your Guns?

Hand over your weapons the incendiary headline at demands. “Ultimately, if gun-control advocates really want to stanch the blood, there’s no way around it,” David Scharfenberg concludes. “They’ll have to persuade more people of the need to confiscate millions of those firearms, as radical as that idea may now seem.” Only that’s not what […]

Question of the Day: Just How Stupid ARE Gun Control Advocates?

In a letter to The Providence Journal, Scituate resident Austin O’Toole wonders why The Ocean State’s waterfowl hunting laws — restricting shotguns to three shells — don’t apply across the board. “It appears that we protect ducks from firepower better than we protect school children, church faithful and concert goers and anyone else hanging around.” So […]
