Gun violence

We noted recently that we don't see much reason for people to own assault-type weapons and magazines that hold large amounts of ammunition.

Can the GOP escape its bubble?

Here we go again. Whenever I try to offer a little helpful advice to Republican leaders, I have grown accustomed to hearing from some cranky conservative or two who blow me off, saying they're "not about to take advice from a liberal like you" -- or words to that effect.
