Why they arrested Ryan Shucard last week, I shall never know. All he did was bring your basic 9mm Smith & Wesson handgun into the U.S. Capitol (actually, the Cannon House Office Building), upon which, in clear violation of what the Founders intended — right, Justice Antonin Scalia? — he was seized and later had to appear in D.C. Superior Court where, thank God, he was eventually released pending a forthcoming hearing. If Shucard has a ...

Could the recent Hobby Lobby decision by the US Supreme Court threaten the economy? Yes, it could.

"The Purge: Anarchy" is a big improvement over last year's "Purge," which squandered its splendid concept on a substandard home invasion plot that was way too self-contained and rote.

LeBron is going back to play for his hometown! No more of this teaming-up-with-other-stars-to-make-a-superteam nonsense! Finally, finally, small-market Cleveland might win a title!

The federal government has taken over ever larger swaths of American life, most recently health care. Obamacare demonstrates that as state dictates expand, religious liberties recede. The Supreme Court's ruling in the Hobby Lobby case was extremely narrow but also extremely important. Religious liberty is the first freedom and must be protected from government.
America always has struggled with the place of faith in society. The colonis ...
