As a new year begins, what is next?

A new year is just around the corner.  As 2016 slips into history, it leaves behind a contentious, tumultuous time.  Are those contentious and tumultuous times a footnote in history?  What will the new year bring?

January 6 ushers in a new Congressional session, the 115th seating of a Congress in the history of the constitutional republic of the United States of America.  January 20th is set for the inauguration of the 45th President in the history of the constitutional republic of the United States of America.

Election Day 2016: Don’t Sit This One Out

In 2016, for the first time ever, some candidates running for office are attacking our Second Amendment rights rather than talking about enforcing our current laws and locking up criminals who misuse firearms. The balance of the Supreme Court is at stake.

Dissecting a Court Ruling

The news release started with this paragraph.  "A saga over 15 years in the making has ended well for common sense and dune riding access. The U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals today rejected appeals from the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD), and upheld the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) 2013 Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area (ISDRA) management plan. The Plan restored motorized dune vehicle access to most of the ISDRA areas closed on an “interim” basis in a 2001 settlement agreement. After nearly a decade of study and planning, BLM determined these areas were appropriate for dune vehicle riding."
