John Buckley: Freedom to carry AND freedom to marry

I don't fit the narrow mold of most political commentators. They just don't know what to make of me.

I'm for limited government and free enterprise; I'm also for peace and civil liberties; I support the freedom to marry as well as the freedom to carry. I believe in "live and let live."

Natalie Tennant: Vehemently disagrees with Obama administration on gun rights

At a women-focused Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee [fundraiser event], First Lady Michelle Obama noted that ObamaCare narrowly passed and gun control legislation was defeated by a narrow margin, which is why "it is critical that we elect Michelle Nunn, Alison Grimes (and) Natalie Tennant."

"It is critical because we all know that it's not enough to elect Barack Obama President if we don't give him a Congress that will help him keep moving this country forward. We know that now. We've experienced it," the First Lady said. That's an applause line in Manhattan, but not so much in Mingo County.

When I asked the Tennant campaign for her reaction to Obama's comments, a spokeswoman said, "Natalie Tennant has been clear that she is an independent voice who vehemently disagrees with the administration on a number of issues that are important to West Virginians, including gun rights, supporting the coal industry and the roll out of the Affordable Care Act."
