Part of the gun control advocates’ narrative includes the claim that the number of gun owners in the U.S. is falling. The obvious goal of this messaging campaign is to convince policymakers that they need not consider the rights or the democratic will of this supposedly diminishing portion of the population.

Bribery case against Apple’s Chief Security Officer shows why NYSRPA v. Bruen was correctly decided :: 09/01/2023
Power corrupts, as the old saying by Lord Acton goes, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Power, big and small, can and will be abused by government officials.
