Gun Control & Minoritieshttp://bit.ly/2gA4rk8"A yawning gap exists between the justification for gun control and its most likely effect. Why? Because how our society is policed depends not on the laws themselves, but on how the police – and the criminal justice system – decide to enforce those laws against their citizens," writes Matthew Sporn for RVA Magazine.

DEBATING FREE SPEECHhttp://bit.ly/2GDbGTLThe violent clashes in Charlottesville on August 12 turned the spotlight on freedom of speech across the nation, with many asking just how much hate speech is covered under the first amendment. And just over a week ago, Richmond experienced a neo-Confederate rally on Monument Avenue, once again helping to push the idea of free speech and its limits to the forefront of the national conversation.
Men Abusing Powerhttp://bit.ly/2hMaX78 "Richmond Times-Dispatch should reassess their editorial guidelines before giving space to men who believe women are responsible for the violence perpetuated against them," writes RVA Magazine's, Political Director, Landon Shroder

LABOR DAYhttp://bit.ly/2DTAj0LYet somewhere along the line Virginians, and Americans in general, have forgotten what Labor Day actually stands for. Today, the holiday stands for little more than the start of school, weekend-long sales, and maybe a cookout or pool party – its political origins are no longer celebrated. Indeed, many politicians do their best to avoid any mention of organized labor when observing the holiday, maybe just giving an obligatory nod to the “American Worker.”
YOUNG PROGRESSIVES BEING INTOLERANThttp://bit.ly/2ExNPEGIn recent months, the direction taken by some progressive groups in the US has become concerning to us in the UK. While a lot of our political views are firmly left of center (from a British perspective), I can’t help but notice that there is a growing illiberalism undermining the progressive cause, which is to say we should be challenging intolerance not reinforcing it.
VIRGINIA AND CONFEDERATE STATUEShttp://bit.ly/2DT14OWVirginia was built on the backs of slaves. In 1619 the first African slaves were kidnapped and brought as chattel to Virginia. For the next 245 years, Virginia participated in a system of human bondage that reduced millions of human beings to the most wretched state, revoking their humanity in the process, subjecting them to humiliations, to violence, and deprived them of all rights.
VIRGINIA AND ALABAMA VOTERS http://bit.ly/2z96kOnVirginia voters stood up to Donald Trump and the Republican Party in November with the Democrats taking a clean sweep of the statewide elections. Alabama, on the other hand, was not looking to follow the same path yesterday. Doug Jones (D) was facing Roy Moore (R) for the United States Senators’ seat left open by now Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Roy Moore was the clear favorite over Jones in the Republican stranglehold of Alabama.
