Tonight on The Independents: Ebola Politics, Jacob Sullum on Guns and Mental Health, LP Senate Candidate Chad Grimm, U.S. Aid to ISIS, Gay-Marry-Me-or-Else!, Keene = Ferguson?, and After-show


On tonight's episode of The Independents (Fox Business Network, 9 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. PT, with re-airs three hours later) beloved Reason Senior Editor Jacob Sullum will explain how, in New York and California, if you want to keep your gun rights, you'd better stay away from any kind of mental health professional.

Party Panelists Guy Benson (Townhall Political Editor) and Rick Ungar (Forbes columnist) will talk about President Barack Obama's semi-private seething over his administration's handling of Ebola, plus the seemingly scant amount of training that U.S. military personnel are receiving before being deployed to the scene of the outbreak. Later, the two will talk about whether for-profit marryists should be punished by the state for refusing to marry people of the same sex.

Last week, beloved Reason staffer Scott Shackford asked, "Will a Libertarian Play Spoiler in the Illinois Governor's Race?" We'll have said Libertarian, Chad Grimm, on to ask about it. Did you hear the one about how U.S. humanitarian aid is lining the pocketbooks of ISIS thugs? We'll discuss. And Kmele Foster will likely lay some whoop-ass on facile comparisons between anti-police protesters in Ferguson, and drunken pumpkin-kickers in Keene, New Hampshire.

Online-only aftershow begins at just after 10. Follow The Independents on Facebook at, follow on Twitter @ independentsFBN, and click on this page for more video of past segments.
