Reince Priebus, Newt Gingrich, Glenn Beck, John R. Bolton and others around Washington react to the appointment Sunday of David Keene as the Washington Times opinion editor.
David Keene, a trusted adviser to presidents, a longtime champion of personal liberty and one of conservatism's most respected voices, was appointed Sunday as the new opinion editor of The Washington Times.
For the first time in over 20 years, gun control is at the top of the national political agenda. So a change in leadership at the powerful National Rifle Association (NRA) can affect the political dynamic. On Monday, Alabama attorney James “Jim” W. Porter II is set to take over as president of the board from David Keene. The NRA annual meeting in Houston, which starts Thursday, will mark the end of Mr. Keene’s two-year term.

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.

Looking for broader remedies to gun violence, Vice President Joe Biden expressed interest Friday in existing technology that would keep a gun from being fired by anyone other than the purchaser. He said evidence shows such technology may have affected events in Connecticut last month when 20 youngsters and six teachers were gunned down inside their elementary school.
