HB 131 would require "the written consent of the father of the child before an abortion can be performed, with certain exceptions."

DAVID ROSMAN: It's time to bring back unselfish holiday traditions

If Christmas is about "tradition," then we have lost the spirit of the winter holiday season. Retail has really taken over, starting the "season" on Thanksgiving Day, and it is a shame.

DAVID ROSMAN: Even under the gun amendment, convicted felons should not own firearms

There are people who should not legally own weapons, and they would include convicted felons, regardless of the nature of the crime.

There is no reason that a student cannot bring a Bible to school, as long as an atheist can bring Christopher Hitchens’ “God Is Not Great” on the same day.

Amendment 5 preempted Columbia's ordinance prohibiting openly carrying firearms within city limits. But why would anyone want to carry a pistol or rifle openly downtown or to the mall?

DAVID ROSMAN: New blimp promotes ideas for Missouri, but only from the right
