JOSEPH FARAH — Barack Obama says he wants to ban more classifications of firearms because he wants to keep Americans safe from gun crime. Do you believe it? I don't. I don't believe Obama cares a whit about the safety of the American people -- and I think I can prove it. First of all, the statistics Obama ignores demonstrate conclusively that firearms in the hands of law-abiding citizens actually saves lives... (more)

JANE CHASTAIN — For more than a century, the term "Boy Scout" has been a synonym for a person of character, someone with high moral values, who respects the law, serves his country and has a reverence for God.
