  • Protecting the Fourth Amendment in the digital age

    A lot has changed since 1986. Mail was sent with postage stamp, a search engine was called a library, “tweets” were the sounds made by birds, and “clouds” were found only in the sky. In 1986, computer storage was finite and expensive. It was unfathomable to think that something like email would allow users to send and receive electronic communications around the globe for free, much less store vast amounts of your information.

        Reasonable people differ on what is reasonable  Based upon his June 29, 2016 op ed it appears that Mr. Howell considers universal background checks and the use of secret lists to curtail the rights of law abiding citizens as reasonable measures. I respectfully disagree.

  • Honoring our nation’s independence

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

    as we come together this Monday to celebrate the 240th year of our nation’s independence, let us take the opportunity to reflect on our Founders’ understanding of our fundamental rights as individuals and their belief that only a system of representative democracy– supported by the rule of law– could guarantee our God-given rights.
