We all know that the gun control community has co-opted the phrase ‘common sense.’
What is ‘common sense’ to them, is foolishness to us.

Most of the historic antecedents for the One China policy that the United States has observed for nearly 40 years have been ascribed to Republican President Richard Nixon. And while it is true that it was Nixon who opened up China, it was Democrat Jimmy Carter...
