Bismarck High School Students Propose Pro-Gay Marriage Legislation

I think North Dakota should legalize gay marriage, and polling trends suggest that North Dakotans are becoming increasingly sympathetic to doing just that,but what’s becoming tiring is North Dakota’s school kids pushing legislation.

Valedictorian Has His Mic Cut Off After Mentioning Religion In Commencement Speech

A similar story about a valedictorian at a South Carolina high school ripping up his speech and delivering the Lord’s Prayer, in defiance of school policy, got a lot of reaction on the reader blogs.

One of the most powerful arguments against gun control is the incontrovertible fact that not only is violent crime in general down, but that crimes committed specifically with guns are down.

Feds Demand Plans For 3D Printed Gun Be Pulled From The Internet

They can make the demand, but can they really hope to control the information? I mean, the federal government also wants people to stop pirating Game of Thrones online too, but they haven’t been able to put much of a dent in peer-to-peer sharing. On Thursday, Defense Distributed founder Cody Wilson received a letter from

The First Entirely 3D Printed Handgun

We’ve seen guns with elements produced on a 3D printer before, but now the first-ever gun entirely produced by a 3D printer has been test fired (via The Blaze).
