CLEVELAND — The free market is alive and well here at the Republican National Convention. Because in addition to the official, RNC-sanctioned merchandise for sale within the arena, private vendors are making a killing selling Trump-themed refuse to freedom-loving, Hillary-hating passersby everywhere.
In the least surprising bit of news possibly ever, lawmakers in Texas don’t think gun control is the answer to preventing tragedies like the recent shooting in Dallas that claimed the lives of five people.
Another day, another routine outburst of fatal gun violence in America: four people were shot at the Berrien County courthouse in St. Joseph Michigan on Monday afternoon. According to initial reports, three civilians and a police officer were wounded. Three of those people have reportedly died, including the shooter.
An incredible and very convincing response from a group of people who clearly felt obligated to say something. Philando Castile died Wednesday, shot by police after he told them he was licensed to carry a gun, as he reached for his ID, wearing his seatbelt, his girlfriend next to him and her daughter in the backseat.
In what threatened to be yet another nightmarish scenario involving a gun, the U.S. Capitol building and visitor center was on lockdown beginning around 9 am Friday morning following reports of an armed woman; individuals were told to “shelter in place.” The lockdown has since been lifted, and Republicans are free to…

On the latest episode of Full Frontal With Samantha Bee, our host took a beautiful rhetorical dump on the Republican Party, whose comrades in the Senate recently rejected four extremely sane measures restricting gun sales one week after 49 people were murdered in an Orlando gay club.
One week ago, 49 people were murdered when a lone gunman opened fire in Orlando, Florida’s Pulse nightclub. To date, it is the deadliest shooting in our country’s history. And today, in the wake of this massacre, the United States Senate blocked four different proposals to implement stricter gun control laws.
In an interview with CNN today, Florida Governor Rick Scott—an empty shell of a man so comically villainous that comparisons to Voldemort are unfair to Voldemort—defended Florida’s gun laws. In the interview, Scott was asked about President Obama’s speech where he challenged, “those who defend the easy accessibility…
Bill O’Reilly and Gretchen Carlson made Fox News history this week by experiencing a brief tandem bout of decency. Both hosts came very close to saying that the federal assault weapons ban, which expired in 2004, should be renewed. And Fox News fans are taking it so well!
Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Connecticut) took the Senate floor a little after 11 a.m. on Wednesday and is refusing to give it up.
And here’s the National Rifle Association, stumbling in late and loud:

A federal appeals court in California has ruled that Americans don’t have an automatic right to carry concealed weapons in public under the Second Amendment. The ruling upholds a law requiring people to have “good cause” to be granted a concealed carry permit. This is sad news for people who badly want to take their…
The NRA is in the midst of constantly re-branding itself, as is necessary when you’re the most powerful gun lobbying group in a nation where everyone, including children, are constantly murdering each other with guns. Honestly, though, this two-month-old ad, part of a series on how brave and tough Americans are: It’s …
