Black Friday Biggest Day for Gun Sales

Black Friday Biggest Day for Gun Sales Black Friday is also one of the biggest days of the year for gun sales. That puts pressure on the system for background checks. Researchers with the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, which is overseen by the FBI, have until the end of the third business day following an attempted firearm purchase to determine whether a buyer is eligible. After that, buyers have the right to get their guns even if the check wasn’t completed. Last year, the clock ran out more than 186,000 times. The problem is the records submitted by… View Article

Black officer shoots and kills white unarmed man

Black officer shoots and kills white unarmed man Where are Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson? Unarmed White Man Killed By Black Cop; Here’s How The Media Reacted. While national news media continue to focus on race in Ferguson, Missouri, where a white police officer shot and killed an unarmed black teenager, they apparently don’t think a similar case in Utah with the races reversed is that newsworthy. Police in Salt Lake City are continuing their probe into an Aug. 11 shooting outside a 7-Eleven convenience store, when a black police officer, whom local media are referring to as “not white,”… View Article

During his speech before the group of journalists and media executives, Ramos made the case for journalists to drop the facade of impartiality and to use their voices and influence not just to inform but as activists to change policy: “The best of journalism happens when we take a stand: when we question… View Article

Ferguson is the epicenter of denial

Ferguson is the epicenter of denial Exclusive: Ted Nugent shares lessons from Michael Brown death, ensuing riots Immediately upon the conclusion of St. Louis County prosecuting attorney Robert McCulloch’s press conference and grand-jury decision, I wrote a brief, commonsense statement of “lessons learned in Ferguson MO” on my Facebook page. You know, the basics of life: Don’t let your kids grow up to be thugs who think they can steal, assault and attack cops as a way of life and badge of black (dis)honor.

Pipeline politics could fuel talk of Alberta separation

Pipeline politics could fuel talk of Alberta separation Few people are indifferent to the prospect of global warming, but that doesn’t mean that greenhouse gas emissions should cloud the debate over construction of new pipelines. Unless we’re going to ban automobiles and other forms of transportation, such as buses and jets, the focus should be on reducing the amount of emissions that are discharged into the air, not on preventing Alberta oil from getting to market. Such common sense is apparently lost on U.S. President Barack Obama, who has been told repeatedly by his officials that the Keystone XL pipeline… View Article

Doug Ford opts out of PC leadership race Controversial Toronto city councillor Doug Ford announced Thursday he would not join the Ontario Progressive Conservative leadership race, something he’d been talking about since he finished a strong second in the city’s mayoral race last month.
