From National Review:

 The U.S. State Department announced that since Thursday, it has been contacted by another 76 American citizens in Afghanistan, of whom 20 want to leave the country; families of more than two dozen American hostages held abroad write a letter questioning President Biden’s commitment to bringing their loved ones home; and a useful perspective on just what kind of “extremism” worries Joe Biden.

Russian Ammo Ban Is An Attack On American Gun Owners

From Reason:

If you’re ideologically committed to a course of action, like imposing restrictive policies, it’s frustrating when the people you want to hurt refuse to cooperate. It’s even more aggravating when some of the folks on your side lose faith and start doing the things you don’t like. If you’re clever and unwilling to compromise, you might then find a backdoor way to impose your will and, incidentally, prod your allies into line. By all appearance, that’s what we’re seeing with the Biden administration’s ban on imports of ammunition from Russia, an important source for America’s tight ammo market.

The poll of 4,000 adults indicated that gun owners are more than twice as likely as non-owners to engage in gun-related activities involving friends and family.
