With all the challenges facing Californians today, gun control is the least important but seems to have taken center stage. Among many draconian “gun control” laws, none is any less so than State Sen. (Kevin) de Leon’s S.B. 53, requiring an annual permit to purchase ammunition and requiring all transactions to be face-to-face, eliminating the people’s ability to order ammunition online. A similar bill has already been deemed unconstitutional and voided — why are we wasting time trying to do it again?

This week marks the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. This means we have a whole adult population who's been raised with the thought that it's OK to take a human life — human life has no value if it interferes with having a good time. Make a mistake and get pregnant, or just don't want to be bothered with a child? No problem, get an abortion.

approval rating. Nevertheless Obama chose, willingly and eagerly,
to support a proposed 13-story, $100 million mosque near Ground
Zero. Sources indicate that radical Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is the
driving force behind the mosque.
