Pants On Fire: Biden’s Bogus Gun Control Claim Up in Smoke

Joe Biden has been caught in another canard about guns. (Screen snip, Biden-Harris campaign.) U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- When Joe Biden declared during his address to Congress and the country—as quoted by The Hill—that, “We need a ban on assault weapons and high capacity again. Don’t tell me it can’t be done. We did it before and it worked,” he evidently didn’t count on people listening who knew better. One of those people was the National Review’s David Harsanyi, and he quickly blew the whistl...

Others, like the Home Defense and Competitive Shooting Act, are clearly good pieces of legislation that should be moved forward. But not all bills are as easy to call as those two.

Supreme Court to weigh whether 2nd Amendment gives citizens right to carry guns in public

The Supreme Court agreed to hear a major gun-rights claim on Monday. The decision they make could change whether or not the 2nd Amendment gives citizens the right to carry loaded firearms when they leave home, regardless of local laws. The laws currently at issue rest mostly in places like California and New York, where concealed carry permits require that gun owns prove they have a "special need" or "good cause" to be armed. — Read the rest

Why Molly Baz just might be the Abbie Hoffman of the culinary world

It seems fitting that the title smacks of Abbie Hoffman’s “Steal This Book” because super cheeky “Cook This Book” by Molly Baz is, at times, downright rebellious. The unconventional format. The slangy lingo. The well placed cuss words. A bold “let’s have fun in the kitchen” vibe became the Baz signature on Instagram — she has more than 630,000 followers — and at Bon Appétit magazine where she was a test kitchen star. (She quit in solidarity with colleagues when it was revealed that not all video...

" The Supreme Court said on Monday that it would review a New York law that imposes strict limits on carrying guns outside the home... its first major Second Amendment case in more than a decade...."

"The Supreme Court has turned down countless Second Amendment appeals since it established an individual right to keep guns in the home for self-defense in 2008 in District of Columbia v. Heller. Since then, lower courts have generally sustained gun control laws. But they are divided on the fundamental and open question posed by the new case: whether states can stop law-abiding citizens from carrying guns outside their homes for self-defense unless they can satisfy the authorities that they hav...

‘Porsche Unseen’ Is A Rare Look Inside Porsche’s Design Studio

Porsche's design studio isn't based in some far-flung metropolitan like New York or Los Angeles or Tokyo. The company got its start in industrial design, after all, so why not keep everything in-house where it can be inspired by the depth of history and motor sport the brand is known for. That's why Porsche has kept its design studio in the quiet German town of Weissach. There's a reason Porsches look like Porsches, and could never be mistaken for another make. The whole company is so invested ...

Blue Streak: A Redone Bushwick Townhouse in an Yves Klein-Esque Hue

Maybe it’s the result of being cooped up for a year, or the sameness the days tend to take on, but lately I’ve surprised myself by seeking out bright hues and unexpected patterns in lieu of my usual all-neutral M.O. It seems I’m not alone, either: A dose of color just feels apt for this particular moment. When Julie sent me this Brooklyn project a few weeks ago, in the middle of a rather grey stretch of weather, it felt like a refreshing palette-cleanser for the eyes. The century-old townhouse i...

10 Great Questions for NYC Architect David Mann

An apt description of David Mann, the founder of MR Architecture + Decor in New York, might be “exacting.” He’s full of smart, highly specific ideas and so is his work, which borders on modern domestic poetry.
