Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Monday, April 2.

  • Quizzical

    Re whether the Second Amendment protects us from a Holocaust, It is likewise sometimes argued that widespread gun ownership, and specifically the Civilian Marksmanship Program, deterred the Japanese from invading the West Coast after Pearl Harbor. As one military historian pointed out, not only is there no evidence to back that up, but China had experienced 20 years or warlords before the Japanese invaded China, and as a result there were plenty of Chinese who had guns and military training, but that didn’t stop the Japanese from invading and killing huge numbers of people. During WWII, 10 to 20 million Chinese died.

  • Too bad Adam Lambert wasn’t in Jesus Christ Superstar Live…


  • From the VA-11th CD Dems:

    11th Congressional District Nominee-Congressman Gerry Connolly

    The Members of the 11th Congressional District Democratic Committee are proud to report that Congressman Gerry Connolly was the only Democratic candidate to file the Declaration of Candidacy, Primary Filing Fee Receipt, and Petitions of Qualified Voters with the 11th District Democratic Chairman Robert Haley. Chairman Haley certified to the Virginia Department of Elections on March 30, 2018, that Gerry Connolly filed the required documents. Since Congressman Connolly was the only candidate qualified, he is the Democratic nominee for the U.S. House of Representatives in the 11th Congressional District.

    • True Blue

      Trump can’t even get a non-partisan event correct! The poor 4 year-olds who waited in the cold, who appeared to be thinking wtf while he ranted about Dems letting down DACA, all while the Dow was diving 500 points. The pictures of the Obamas playing with children and reading “Where the Wild Things Are” are so much more likable.
