How about mandated insurance, just as there is now mandated car insurance. Against damage to others, of course; damage to your own gun/car is your problem.

Frankly, the whole "security by the school" stuff seems ludicrous to me, from a European point of view. Running schools as if they are high security prisons isn't how we do it over here.

Well, to be fair, the Germans have a similar thing in regard to "no speed limits on the Autobahn". Of course, they're sensible enough to accept that in some cases (the majority of the actual roads,...

As a Senator, Clinton voted for the invasion of Iraq. Trump did not vote for that as a Senator. So, obviously, the Dems are to blame for the whole mess.

Ah, but they have a shiny new SCOTUS now, don't they?
Or at least a new one. Shiny is in the eye of the beholder in this case, I suppose.

All the Republicans have to do to prevent that is simply not ever have any meetings again. After all, they control Congress.
Alternatively, they can classify those minutes themselves. I doubt...

Let Naval officers from the Pacific Fleet direct the traffic. There are no container ships to run destroyers into in DC, so what could possibly go wrong?
