Elizabeth Warren Urges Democrats to Champion Gun Control, Shut Down Debate

The case represents the latest battle in an effort dating back nearly two decades to prevent anti-gun localities from undermining the pro-gun policies of the state legislature.

First, Carry No Gun: Police Chief Gets Inhospitable Reception at Texas Medical Clinic
We recently reported on claims that “gun safety advocates” in the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services have given a U.S. Marine Corps. veteran an untenable choice: custody of his grandson or his constitutional right to possess a loaded firearm.  Now, from Texas – of all places – comes a similar tale of a police chief who was told he could receive medical care from a Woodlands ear, nose & throat clinic … but only if he took off his duty sidearm and left it outside the building.
