How to Keep Students Safe

With the tragic shooting at the school in Parkland, Florida the talk of the day, and month, surrounds school safety and how to protect our children. Many of a left-of-center persuasion jump straight to calls for gun control. They want to place all the blame for horrific events like this on guns. But doing so fails to comprehend that gun control laws only keep guns out of the hands of good people who, if armed, could stop bad people with guns. The solution to violence is not that simple. Heritage Foundation President Kay Cole James said, “The knee-jerk answer by many liberals is ‘ban guns.’ But I think the questions we face are just too complex to be resolved by two little words.” We couldn’t agree more.

Did you know that 90% of al shootings happen inl mass “gun-free zones”? With that in mind, Liberty for All-supported Congressman Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky has an actual solution to the problem. His proposed legislation, HR 34 entitled the “Safe Students Act,” would repeal the 1990 “Gun Free School Zones Act.” Three out of the four deadliest school shootings in U.S. history have happened since gun-free school zones were implemented. Clearly just banning guns from public school property is not a working solution.

The problems that we face go back to a basic truth about freedom. Benjamin Franklin said, “Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” History ... continue reading »

Why Have the “Right to Try”?

America is called the land of freedom and opportunity. Here terminally ill patients should be at liberty, knowing the potential risks, to try experimental therapies (drugs, biologics, devices) in hopes of saving their own life. These are therapies which have completed Phase 1 testing, but have not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration. This is the argument behind the aptly titled “right to try” laws.

Opponents of the bill say that it can open up the patient to harm, but this ignores the painfully obvious fact that they already have a terminal diagnosis. Who better to make decisions affecting the life of a patient than that patient along with the counsel of their doctor? Why should a federal bureaucracy make the decision for them?

Kurt Altman, National Policy Adviser for the Goldwater Institute, has said that right-to-try laws return control of medical decisions “back to a local level”. Victor Riches, President & CEO of the Goldwater Institute said, “There’s no more fundamental freedom than the right to save your own life. Right to try guarantees that freedom by ensuring that patients, along with their doctors, are in control of the treatments they receive when facing a terminal diagnosis. Right to try will open new paths to treatments for many patients who are currently out of options.”

Liberty for All supported Senator Eric Brakey of Maine who was the lead Senate sponsor of “right to try” legislation during his time as Chair of the Health and Human ... continue reading »

Will New Hampshire be the first state in the Northeast to ban compulsory unionism?

At Liberty for All, we believe that freedom of association, as protected by the First Amendment of the constitution, guarantees the right of each American to seek employment without fear of being coerced to pay dues to a union against their wishes.

Right-to-work laws in most cases have the same basic purpose; namely, to prevent companies from firing workers who do not pay union dues and to preserve the liberty of workers. It would save workers – but cost unions – a lot of money. Heritage Foundation calculations using 2010 union financial reports data from the Department of Labor and Office of Labor–Management Standards found that private-sector New Hampshire unions would lose 15 percent of their dues-paying members totaling about $1.9 million a year.

New Hampshire has considered right-to-work legislation each year since 2011. It has never made it into law, either dying in the House, the Senate, or the Governor’s desk. However, the new Governor of New Hampshire, Christopher Sununu, included the right-to-work issue as part of his agenda. This brings hope that New Hampshire may be the twenty-ninth state to pass such legislation.

Right-to-work states are attractive to business investment. Whether a state has such a law is a factor considered by companies looking to relocate or build new plants. Stan Greer of the National Institute for Labor Relations Research said “Once it adopts a right-to-work law, New Hampshire will be the first state in the Northeast to ban compulsory unionism, and will become a magnet ... continue reading »
