Donald Carder wears his handgun in a holster as he pushes his son, Waylon, in a stroller at the National Rifle Association convention in Louisville, Ky., in May. Attendees at the convention are permitted to carry firearms under Kentucky's open-carry law.

A Long Island library removes all Pride books and displays from its children’s actions, leaving the LGBTQ+ community wounded. Also, a guidebook for Connecticut to deal with racial tensions, fair pay for women after 50 years of Title IX, and a Supreme Court decision strikes down New York’s conceal carry law.

A native Long Islander, J.D. is WSHU's managing editor. He also hosts the climate podcast Higher Ground. J.D. reports for public radio stations across the Northeast, is a journalism educator and proud SPJ member.
