On the Trump Administration’s Unconstitutional “Bump Stock” Ban

Today, reports indicate that the Trump Administration has moved to ban so-called “bump stocks” in light of the Las Vegas shooting that occurred in 2017. Regardless of where one stands on the Second Amendment or how one feels specifically about such “bump stocks,” one cannot truthfully claim to support the Constitution or, indeed, even the […]

The Rule of Law or Rule of Man? (Redux 2.0)

The more things change, the more they stay the same. President Trump, that supposed protector of the Constitution, bulwark against Leftist encroachments, Clinton-slayer, and Drainer of Swamps, recently rejected the notion of Fifth Amendment Due Process protections while simultaneously appearing to embrace a Second Amendment-infringing position, in declaring “I like taking guns away early.  Take […]

Alleged Patterns of Gross Federal Law Enforcement Misconduct

The reader may recall some time back that the Bundy family, led by its patriarch Cliven Bundy, engaged in intense standoffs with several local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies.  I do not wish to dissect all of the nuances and details of these incidents or the events leading up to them, as they are […]

Why DACA Is (and Was) Unconstitutional

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was an executive policy governing immigration enforcement which then-President Barack Obama signed into effect via executive order in 2012 (later expanded upon in 2014).  This policy protected so-called “Dreamers” from deportation, so named after the special class of alien residents identified in the Development, Relief, and Education for […]
