Santa, Please Bring Mommy an Assault Rifle

Santa, Please Bring Mommy an Assault Rifle

Momservation: Setting a good example for your kids doesn’t mean target shooting with an assault weapon.

Someone please tell me why a suburban mother needs an assault rifle.

And being a “gun enthusiast” is a hollow explanation reverberating against the sobs of parents.

Patriotism Perspective

Patriotism Perspective

My son, Walker Knauss, will be receiving a Certificate of Merit award from the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge for his essay on patriotism he wrote in the spring of 2011 while in 8th grade at Cavitt Junior High School.

T-t-t-t-t-t-t-t-t-t screamed the machine guns, as Syrian soldiers under the command of regime leader Bashar al-Assad shot down their fellow countrymen. They continued to pelt the protestors until the square was littered with dead and wounded activists. The Protestors were just patriots defending their country; the soldiers were just patriots defending their country. Both groups held conflicting views about what it meant to be patriotic.
