Chris Collins (R’NY) introduced legislation Monday aimed at nullifying state’level gun controls that exceed gun controls put in place by the federal government. New York’s SAFE Act (2013) is a prime example of the kind of gun control Collins hopes to erase. WKBW reports Collins’ bill is titled the Second Amendment Guarantee Act (SAGA), and its language explicitly “[limits] the authority of states to regulate conduct, or impose penalties or taxes in relation to rifles or shotguns.” It is designed to catch laws that go beyond federal statutes and render them void.

Breitbart Big Government, by Neil Munro Posted By: earlybird- Tue, 01 09 2017 12:09:56 GMT The Department of Homeland Security has released data showing how former President Barack Obama gave work permits to roughly 2.3 million migrants for U.S. jobs in 2016. The award of 2.3 million work permits was added to the 2016 inflow of roughly 1.1 million new legal immigrants and roughly 500,000 outsourcing visa workers, such as the H’1B white’collar workers.

American Greatness, by Mackubin Owens Posted By: earlybird- Tue, 01 21 2017 12:21:50 GMT President Trump’s announcement via Twitter last week that he would discontinue administrative directives ordering the armed forces to accommodate transgender men and women in the military has met with an all’too’predictable response.(Snip)What can we say about the plan to revoke Obama’era transgender policy? For one thing, it violates no one’s “rights.” Transgender people continue to possess all of the rights of their fellow citizens, but there is no “right” to serve in the military.

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Mallory Shelbourne Posted By: NorthernDog- Tue, 01 29 2017 12:29:52 GMT House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D’Calif.) on Sunday said it is “unimportant” for Democrats to win the midterm elections in 2018.

She was 89. Her death was confirmed by the office of President Emmanuel Macron. Ms. Moreau, whom journalists liked to call the thinking moviegoer’s femme fatale, first came to American audiences’ attention in Louis Malle’s 1958 drama “The Lovers.” The film included a lengthy love scene in which Ms. Moreau, playing a bored housewife having an affair, enacted a clearly orgasmic moment,
