'The Press Uses Silence': Gutfeld Responds to Light Coverage of Officer Stopping Potential School Shooter

Greg Gutfeld said much of the mainstream media either did not report or did not give enough coverage to the story of a school resource officer preventing a potential mass shooting in Illinois this week.

The Chicago Tribune identified the suspect as 19-year-old Matthew Milby, a former student at the school, about halfway between Davenport, Iowa and Chicago.

Corporate Gun Control Might Be the Worst Threat to Gun Rights

Let’s be honest. If you own guns or you’re a gun-rights supporter, and if you’re concerned about government restrictions on your Second Amendment rights, the future looks bright.

Court: district attorney was not liable for malicious prosecution or fabrication of evidence

McDonough v. Smith August 3, 2018

The man's death was likely an accident, but it highlights how recklessly and foolishly police have perpetuated the drug war, even as Americans want to pull back.

On July 9 a state worker on a bulldozer was clearing out some brush to improve hunters' access to state lands. He saw a suspicious car off the road and called the cops. When law enforcement came out to investigate, the Reading Eagle reports, they found those 10 marijuana plants.
