Liberals say “gun control” will cure everything from drug-fueled gang wars to jaywalking. But Newtown, Conn., already had the laws that the anti-Bill of Rights types want to impose on the rest of us. And Newtown is a libertarian paradise compared to Chicago.
If ongoing disagreements between the old GOP guard and junior lawmakers are any indication, there’s a rift in the Republican Party that isn’t going to be resolved anytime in the near future.

The IRS/Tea Party Scandal doesn’t hold a candle to the size and scope of IRS abuses… So, it sheds no light on anything.
