Typical Liberal – Indians and Land Rights

Gene Nichol History

The often-controversial president of the College of William & Mary resigned Tuesday, amid outrage for allowing a pornographic show to be performed on campus.

Gene Nichol announced his resignation, effective immediately, after learning that the school’s board had decided not to renew his contract due in July. Nichols had often came under intense criticism for making decisions that some claimed suppressed Christian expression.

Last week, Nichol outraged several students for allowing a sex show on campus featuring porn actors, strippers and other sex workers. He said Tuesday that he would have violated the First Amendment had he banned the show from the student-governed speaker series.–Mary-Pres-Resigns-After-Scandals-/

Indian Land Rights

Objections raised by B.C. aboriginals to proposed logging in their traditional hunting grounds have resulted three decades later in the clearest and farthest-reaching decision on Indian land claims and title, with the Supreme Court of Canada upholding on Thursday a lower court ruling that gives First Nations effective control over vast tracts of territory outside their reserves.

While the ruling deals specifically with litigation over 1,700 square kilometres in B.C.’s central interior, for centuries home to six Tsilhqot’in Nation bands with a common history and culture, it will influence — and likely instigate — more land-based claims across Canada.
Thursday’s decision establishes conditions aboriginal groups must meet to press collective rights on territories outside their settlements or formal treaty boundaries.

Christie supports larger Capacity Magazines

On July 2nd, Christie vetoed A2006, a bill that would have limited firearm magazine capacities to 10 rounds in New Jersey.

Christie criticized the bill as a do-nothing approach to curbing gun violence that unnecessarily burdens gun owners. Christie stated,

“This [bill] is the very embodiment of reform in name only. It simply defies common sense to believe that imposing a new and entirely arbitrary number of bullets that can be loaded into a firearm will somehow eradicate, or even reduce, future instances of mass violence.”
