Pro-gun voters put heat on rural Democratic senators

From Montana to Louisiana, these anxious voters have made at least six Democratic senators a little uneasy heading into next year's election season.

Why the 2nd Amendment

Rep. John Lewis, D Ga., in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., shootings, said: "The British are not coming. ... We don't need all these guns to kill people." Lewis' vision, shared by many, represents a gross ignorance of why the framers of the Constitution gave us the Second Amendment.

Questions for Gun Controllers: If a policy doesn't produce the intended results, why pursue it?

In your view, should a public policy have a discernible connection to its stated goal to make it worth pursuing? Or is it enough that it be well intentioned and opposed by the NRA? Actually, there's no need to answer that. It's obvious enough already.
