Fireworks at the debate

I missed the debate on Saturday, but I heard there were some fireworks.  Everybody ganged up on Marco Rubio, saying he was inexperienced and unaccomplished, and he reportedly didn’t handle it well.  Jeb Bush scored on Donald Trump for using eminent domain on an elderly woman.  Trump tried to shut him up, prompting boos from the crowd, whereupon Trump attacked them for being members of the establishment!  (Details after the jump.)

Can you be pro-life and pro-gun?

Evangelical pastor Rob Schenck criticizes his fellow conservative Christians for being knee-jerk 2nd Amendment supporters, arguing that it is impossible to be both pro-life and pro-gun.  A Lutheran police officer, Joseph Klotz, answers those arguments, concluding that the missing piece of the puzzle is vocation.
