Quantum Gravity will contain articles on second amendment issue by various Guest Bloggers hand chosen by Chuck Michel.
The “Quantum Gravity” blog has little to do with reconciling quantum theory and gravity – assuming they need reconciling. For those interested in such matters, see: http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/quantum-gravity/#6. The blog will stick to simpler matters, like: Whatever happened to federalism? Or the news media? And why does America seem intent on following Europe into the great socio-economic abyss? Of course, there will be Second Amendment news and commentary, as well. It’s a target rich environment.

It’s been over six months since terrorists attacked the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi and killed four Americans, including Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens. Remarkably – but not surprisingly – we still don’t know what happened, the White House continues to block the story, and the main stream media is missing in action. We now know that the Obama administration has somehow forced the 30+ survivors of that attack to remain silent. Senator Lindsey Graham has recently expressed his frustration [...]More
In 2007, the University of Colorado at Boulder fired Ward Churchill, an ethnic-studies professor who six years earlier said that businessmen killed in the September 11 terrorist attacks were legitimate targets because they were “little Eichmanns.” The following year, perhaps thinking it might be a good idea to have professors to the right of Ward, the school’s chancellor Bud Peterson suggested a new chair for a professor of conservative thought and policy. (See May 13, 2008 article: http:/ [...]More
There a several "right to carry" cases making their way through the courts currently. These cases typically challenge local policies that make it almost impossible to get the license needed to carry a firearm in public for self-defense, e.g., for carrying a handgun in your car, brief case, purse, etc. In California, these Carry Permits generally are the only avenue available for carrying in public. No permit, no carry.
The recurring theme among local governments that impose strict carry la [...]More
