It seems like only yesterday that skeptics of Barack Obama’s birth in Hawaii rushed to the Supreme Court to try to block the son of an American mother and Kenyan father from taking office as president. The justices turned away those challenges as fast as they arrived at the courthouse door, much as lower courts did. Seven years later, Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is dealing with pointed remarks from rival Donald Trump that Cruz’s birth in Canada to an American mother and Cuban father raises doubt about his eligibility to be president and could dog his campaign for the White House.

President Obama launched a new gun control agenda this week which has gotten a good amount of attention. But will the measures he announced have any real impact? Will they really reduce mass shootings? (ahh, probably not) Will they possibly reduce overall gun deaths each year? (actually, yes) Are we going to have a continual increase gun sales? (you bet) Can mental health records actually make it into gun purchasing databases? (depends, but to say in a majority of states might be pushing it) Brad discusses all these issues, and can also explain the tactics and reasoning being deployed by federal officials in Burns, Oregon, where that rural federal building standoff is ongoing.

It’s non-binding, but still… British lawmakers will debate a petition calling for U.S. presidential hopeful Donald Trump to be banned from the country over his remarks about Muslims — and a rival petition saying he should be allowed in. More than half a million people signed an online petition calling for Trump to be blocked after he called last month for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States. Almost 40,000 people backed one saying he should not be barred. Under British law any petition that gets 100,000 signatures must be considered for parliamentary debate. The House of Commons Petitions Committee said Tuesday that both petitions would be debated Jan. 18. The debate will not result in a binding vote.
