GOOD: Nearly 5 million jobs were added to the economy last month.

GOOD: The long arm of the law catches up to Ghislaine Maxwell, the British socialite and heiress who became a confidante of disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.

GOOD: One particular part of the thriving economy: gun sales. Six months into the year, the FBI instant check system is approaching last year’s record number.

Rich McFadden of Radio America and Jim Geraghty of National Review share cheers.

    Only about eight million firearms sold. There are about 330 million Americans. Need more weapons.

    Each American should probably have at least two.

    It seems to me like it would be a very good thing to disconnect from China, and those people who may never have a job again on cruise ships or theme parks and some other service businesses, go to work actually making things in this country again.

    Remember, Jim Geraghty is always wrong.

    We have a Constitutional right to own firearms until Justice Kagan convinces Justice Gorsuch we don’t; or until Joe Biden appoints a fifth Democratic Justice; whichever comes first.

    With much of the Country deep believers in the right to bear arms and so many guns already in the hands of millions, any gun restriction laws can anticipate the exact same success as our Country’s ill fated 18th Amendment.

    A lot of those deep believers in the right to bear arms, seem to think there’s no problem voting for democrats.

    And even if those democrats take away – or try to take away – their guns, those people won’t believe that voting for democrats had anything to do with it.

    Democratic politicians in pro-gun districts will be shocked, shocked by what the Supreme Court has done.
