Shame on U.S. Sen. Dan Coats for voting against the improved public safety that expanding background checks prior to gun sales would bring.
Offering perspective on today's issues
The Indiana General Assembly's shoot-from-the-hip idea of having secret armed personnel carry guns in schools, like air marshals, had a number of serious flaws, one of them potentially fatal.
For the life of me, I don’t see how expanded background checks for gun purchases is an assault on the 2nd Amendment. Yet that is the phrase we hear over and over from the Indiana congressional delegation.
An Indiana House committee on Tuesday approved a plan that would require each of the state's public schools to have an employee packing heat on the premises during school hours. Those legislators' response to the problem of guns in schools is to require guns in schools. Seriously.

Q: Hi, I worked as a temp contractor as an administrative assistant. When the assignment ended in May, I wasn't on good terms with the company. The owner can be vindictive. I've heard stories from others about her.
Q: I'm significantly underemployed, with a salary at half my previous one, and I want to find work back in the city. I work in one state, live in another and am job hunting in a third. I'm starting to get leads and I'm anxious about not being able to get in for interviews as needed. Distance…
