Pending Roe reversal and subsequent nation-wide abortion bans
Second Amendment myths everyone should stop believing
Proud gun-owners finding common ground with common sense gun legislation
Depp v. Heard: the defamation trial held in the court of public opinion
Jan. 6th investigation hearings start June 9th at 8 p.m.
As we move into June and July, we will begin to see the Supreme Court release important decisions—including those dealing with the hot topics of abortion and gun control.
Alito's draft indicated that the Supreme Court will soon overturn the right to abortion in the upcoming Dobbs v Jackson Women's Health case. As seen in the leaked opinion, the right to abortion is vulnerable as it stands now. In The Atlantic, I suggest a reframing of abortion under the Constitution from an individual right to a restraint on government from interfering in sacred personal spaces.
In the wake of the recent tragedy in Uvalde, Texas, we are once again forced to reckon with the gun problem in this country. In a starkly divided nation, we have to find some sort of common ground—our children's lives depend on it. I'm sharing an article I wrote for The Hill about Child Access Prevention laws that anyone across the spectrum of political beliefs should be able to get behind.
Getting to the root of gun violence in America isn't simple, but it starts with being able to have hard conversations with each other about nuanced issues. In another piece I wrote for The Hill, I spell out some common Second Amendment myths that frequently surface in these discussions.
Lastly, I'm excited to share my conversation with Kirby Wilbur, is a former radio host, conservative political activist, and proud gun owner. Together we explore how the left and right can come together and find solutions that will protect our children from gun violence.
