Top Army and Marine generals argue that women should be required to register for the draft, now that they can serve in virtually all combat positions. But the better way to achieve gender equity in this field is to abolish draft registration for men.
President signs three gun law reforms: prohibiting ban on lead ammunition; first step to right-to-carry for military personnel; sell surplus military handguns to the public.
The Pentagon's recent decision to open virtually all combat positions to women suggests that the days of male-only draft registration are likely to be numbered. But the best way to achieve gender equality in this field is not to force women to register for the draft, but to abolish draft registration for all. That way, we can achieve both equality and freedom for men and women alike.
In 1942, when the enemy showed that it could strike the homeland, Maryland Gov. Herbert O'Conor called forth the Maryland Minute Men -- citizens providing their own arms -- for defense against enemy raiders.
Their action contrasts favorably with the Obama administration's failure to secure congressional authorization for our own campaign against ISIS.
Obama claim that "other countries" do not have mass shootings is egregiously false.
A link to the video of my C-SPAN Washington Journal interview from earlier this morning, on the legality of the war against ISIS. I explain the flaws in the Obama administration's legal rationale for the war, and why Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty might provide a better justification going forward.
The terrorist attack on France offers the Obama administration an opportunity to legalize (if only prospectively) the previously unconstitutional war against ISIS by invoking America's obligations under Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty.
Islamic State's attack on France provides the president with an opportunity to make an illegal war into a lawful one.
Even as it expands to include the use of American troops in ground combat operations, the war against ISIS still lacks constitutionally required congressional authorization.
