More gun restrictions might not stop attacks, but more guns won’t help at all.

Suicides and accidental shooting deaths are tragedies in their own right, but including them in gun violence statistics for the purpose of arguing for stricter gun control is a bit disingenuous.

Is it too soon after Virginia Beach to talk about sensible gun control legislation? Is it too soon after Virginia Tech? Too soon after Sandy Hook? Too soon after Parkland? Too soon after Las Vegas? Too soon after Columbine? Too soon after Orlando? Too soon after Sutherland Springs? Too soon after Charleston? Too soon after 39,773 gun deaths in this country in 2017 (two-thirds of them suicides)? Too soon after the nearly 100 firearms deaths yesterday and the day before and the day before that?

I find it interesting that personal property owners are responsible for any damage caused by their personal property, but for any property damage (i.e. tree damage) that occurs on city of Richmond property, you have a better chance getting hit by lightning than getting a dime out of the city.

The geniuses who brought us Roundup are now offering a version that will kill 100 types of insects (their claim) but won’t harm your lawn! What a sick world.

Jerry Nadler and the House Judiciary Committee have so far produced Michael Cohen and Watergate cover-up instigator John Dean as guest witnesses in attempts to resuscitate obstruction charges. Perhaps next they will provide Frankie Pentangeli. He is probably at least as credible as the first two.

For those Democrats who were outraged regarding the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court hearings, take note: Justice Kavanaugh has made Supreme Court history. All of his law clerks are female. That has never happened in the history of the Supreme Court.

The Federal Reserve has reported that U.S. household net worth grew 4.5% in the first quarter of 2019, the largest quarterly gain since the fourth quarter of 2004. If anyone thinks that the blazing Trump economy is not lifting up all segments of American society, then they should take it up with the Federal Reserve.
