Bush, Rubio and Kasich eye one another in the shadow of Trump

    The Republican presidential contest is not, regardless of what is seems some days, all about Donald Trump.

A New Way to Tackle Gun Deaths

    We’ve mourned too often, seen too many schools and colleges devastated by shootings, watched too many students get an education in grief. It’s time for a new approach to gun violence.

    Having thoroughly intimidated the rest of the Republican Party's 2016 presidential field and won a goodly number of its voters' hearts with his tough-guy persona, Donald Trump has decided to tackle their minds.
