The right to be free from guns

WASHINGTON — Advocates of a saner approach to guns need a new strategy. We cannot go on like this, wringing our hands in frustration after every tragedy involving firearms. We said “Enough” after Sandy Hook. We thought the moment for action had come. Yet nothing happened. We are saying “Enough” after Charleston. But this time, we don’t even expect anything to happen. What’s needed is a...

What Christie didn’t say about Charleston (Guest Editorial)

We heard Gov. Chris Christie condemn the church shootings in Charleston, S.C., and speak forthrightly about racism. But what he didn’t say also spoke volumes. There was nothing about the Confederate flag that still waves on the capitol grounds; nothing about taking any action against gun violence. On that first point, at least, other Republicans...

The Charleston Massacre: ‘While GOP Candidates Stammer…’

I do not often cut-and-paste large sections of articles from a leading newspaper. However, the facts that I am on travel and that an excellent article sometimes cannot/should not be paraphrased prompts me to quote parts of Anne Gearan’s “While GOP candidates stammer, Clinton directly confronts race,” in today’s Washington Post. First, Gearan laments that few of the nearly two dozen politicians running for president stepped forward to...

Church killer spawned by a racist society (Guest Voice)

Church killer spawned by a racist society By Rabbi Ben Kamin ENCINITAS, California (SDONA) –That scary-eyed, sick young man in Charleston who sat among God-fearing people in church for an hour and then began to murder them says he wanted to start a racial war. Really? That war is well under way and even that factoid hasn’t crossed your little Nazi brain. All you did was to create nine new angels of color in the heaven who, unlike the...

The Rejection of Multi-Culturalism

In the aftermath of Wednesday’s tragic mass killing of nine African-American church goers by Dylann Roof, both the left and the right have used this incident to try to push their political agenda. Most pundits and writers from the left, including President Obama, are pushing for stricter gun control. Others are pushing for the removal of South Carolina’s flag which still includes the symbol of the Confederacy. Pundits from...

Remember Mother Emanuel

WASHINGTON — Maybe it was white rage that provoked a young man to kill nine innocent worshipers as they prayed. Maybe it was mental illness or some other twisted motivation. The one thing about which there can be no debate is that he had a gun. The gun is what ties the unspeakable atrocity in Charleston, S.C., to the long and apparently never-ending list of mass shootings in this country. We know them by their place names...

The New Urban Nightmare

America has woken up this morning to the latest tragedy sparked by racial hatred – the senseless murder of nine people meeting at a church in Charleston, SC. Pastor Clementa Pickney and eight parishioners were taking part in a bible study when they were gunned down by a lone, white gunman. With the recent events in Ferguson, Baltimore and now Charleston, there will be continued discussions on the deterioration of race relations...

Of Gunfights and Boiling Frogs

You can always leave it to the ideologues of the Right to view events through funhouse mirror lenses: Making the comparison with Baltimore, many on the left — Salon’s Jenny Kutner, to take an example — demanded to know why the media did not describe the events in Waco as a “riot.” The answer, obviously enough, is that the event in Waco was not a riot — it did not represent a general state of civil disorder, there were no mobs...

Obama Acts To Limit Use Of Military Equipment By Police

The events in Ferguson are primarily remembered for raising national awareness as to the frequency of unarmed black men being killed by police, and how we have two systems of justice. Ferguson also led to people on both the left and right joining together to oppose the militarization of police. President Obama has responded to this concern: President Obama on Monday banned the federal provision of some types of military-style...

Texas Conspiracy Theorists

There are crazies all over the nation, but Texas has to take the cake, as the state government is acceding to the demands of its crazies and perhaps believing some of the conspiracy theories themselves. This is related to the planned U.S. military training exercise called “Jade Helm 15 which will be taking place in parts of Texas as well as the rest of the Southwest and California. It should also be remembered that there are...

The NRA and Comic-Con

The NRA and Comic-Con by Daryl Cagle This weekend I went to the National Rifle Association (NRA) convention in Nashville, Tennessee, my hometown. I’m an editorial cartoonist; I sit at home drawing and I rarely go to big conventions. The only thing I have to compare the NRA to is the San Diego Comic-Con, and I thought the NRA convention stacked up pretty well to Comic-Con. The NRA convention is half the size of Comic-Con. The...
