  • Gun control’s unintended consequences

    As a student living on Chicago’s south side in the early 1990s, I understood that the beginning of spring brought not only warmer days, but the sound of gunfire at night. Sometimes it would be the single shot from a handgun, and occasionally it would be the “pop-pop-pop” of a semi-automatic weapon.

  • Don’t make a big stink — think pink

    During the first couple months of this year’s legislative session, I supported a bill on which the opponents didn’t feel at all constrained by either the truth or any kind of ethical behavior.
