The District of Columbia has spent almost two years persecuting a good man because they wrongly thought he had guns in the city.
Democrats are trying to get the female vote in November with a public relations campaign about “equal pay for equal work,” yet they are not practicing what they preach. The White House and Senate Democratic leaders employ fewer women as top aides, so they earn less.Shares
Maryland moms and dads will now have to be more vigilant when their children use public bathrooms. It will soon be legal for a man who simply says he identifies as a woman to use the ladies’ room.Shares
VIDEO: Emily Miller on Fox News about Mark Witaschek guilty verdict for muzzleloader bullets in D.C.
Jon Scott of Fox News interviewed Emily Miller about the D.C. case of Mark Witaschek, who was found guilty this week of having unregistered muzzleloader bullets at home. The video of the March 27 “Happening Now” show is below.Shares
On Friday afternoon, I accompanied Mr. Witaschek and his wife, Bonnie, to Metropolitan Police Department headquarters to abide by the terms of his sentence, which meant registering within 48 hours.Shares
Despite President Obama’s best efforts to exploit the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School for his political agenda, the public is starting to see through his maneuver. Polls show that the support for Mr. Obama’s gun-control wishlist is falling. Even so, the polls continue to be skewed in a way that gives the false impression of a higher approval than really exists.
“Stand with Rand” was so positive for the public discourse, that we now need to “Stand with Guns.” Three Republican senators told Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid that they will filibuster bringing his gun-control bills to the floor in early April. While procedurally they can’t announce in advance, an old-fashioned filibuster about the facts of gun-control laws would be a great educational tool for a wide audience.
On on the Fox Business Network, Senior Editor of Opinion Emily Miller was part the political A-team panel on "Lou Dobbs Tonight" on Feb. 15. Mr. Dobbs asked about The Washington Times story on Mayor Mike Bloomberg's irresponsible gun-control ads, the Supreme Court hearing gay marriage cases and other topics.
Mike Bloomberg is spending $12 million on attack ads designed to force U.S. senators to vote for national gun control laws that will supposedly save lives. However, the New York mayor’s commercials running in 13 states over the next two weeks may cause injury and death by showcase irresponsible handling of a firearm.
Senate Democrats had four years to consider spending and taxing policies that would help our bad economy. Apparently, they ignored their lawful responsibility since 2009 only so that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid could avoid exposing that his party has no ideas to avoid our nation going bankrupt.
While President Obama lost a round this week on his gun-control agenda in Congress, but he's making up for lost ground by pursuing a broader gun grab at the United Nations.
President Obama is still so fixated on fundraising and divisive campaign tactics that major tragedies and world crises get ignored.
President Obama said getting a national “assault weapon” ban was one of his major policy goals of the year. He has already failed.
The vice president of the United States shouldn't dispense advice that would put anyone taking it behind bars. In his role as President Obama's top lobbyist for gun control, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. has been shooting from both hip and lip, promoting the shotgun as the alternative to the sporting rifle.
Politicians know the game is up once "Saturday Night Live" mocks them and their policies. President Obama found himself in that unenviable position this weekend. He had mustered all his effort to dispatch Cabinet secretaries to stand before every available camera in sight to recite tales of the mayhem and horror that would follow in the wake of a minuscule across-the-board reduction in federal spending.
Aperverse side effect of Maryland's gun-control hysteria is that certain proposed legislation could leave American soldiers disarmed. The General Assembly should slow down and think about what it's doing.
Democrats on Capitol Hill are sprinting to give President Obama a quick victory in his gun-control crusade. Sloth won't cut it. Energized senators have sped from bad idea to full committee vote in less than two months. That sounds like sloth in the world where the rest of us live, but in the Senate, that's warp speed.
Gun-control laws don't reduce crime, but they do reduce employment. Some governors don't care and are pushing for more pointless statutes that put their citizens' jobs on the line. Smarter governors sense the opportunity to poach a few manufacturers from their colleagues.
It may not stick, but the Obama administration might be getting a late education in the value of guns. When President Obama first exploited the tragedy at Newtown for more gun control, Wayne LaPierre, the CEO of the National Rifle Association, suggested putting armed guards in the schools.
Chicago is a dangerous town, but gun control hasn't made it better. The city forbids the law-abiding from having guns, leaving the bad guys to rule the streets. The result is one of the highest murder rates in the country.
Under a law that just took effect, Barack Obama will be the first president required to send Congress a budget that balances at some point in the future. Since that point isn't likely to be in anyone's lifetime, Republicans once again are looking to a constitutional amendment to impose restraint.
President Obama's State of the Union speech Tuesday was carefully staged to promote his gun-grabbing second-term agenda. Arrangements were made so TV cameras would pan to the faces of victims of gun violence in the House galleries.
Expect President Obama to use his primetime State of the Union address Tuesday to blame the GOP for all the nation's ills in the hopes of convincing voters to oust them in 2014. He knows the most extreme of the liberal items on his agenda can't get through the legislative process unless Rep. Nancy Pelosi retakes the speaker's gavel.
President Obama has a way to delay the across-the-board $85 billion sequestration scheduled for March 1. His not-so-surprising proposal is to raise taxes so he can spend more. Fortunately, the GOP is not going along with this tired, old plan.
Nothing adds pizazz to a tired policy issue in Washington like flying in celebrities for a news conference. Gun-control advocates have been losing legislative steam since the Newtown, Conn., tragedy, so they called on the glitterati to brighten their case before the Capitol hallways on Wednesday.
