AdvertisementBut after filing a Freedom of Information Act request, The Washington Post obtained National Park Service documents from 2015 where Sheehy said that a shooting had occurred at Glacier National Park. The newly-released National Park Service report said that "a park visitor called park dispatch" and stated that a firearm had discharged at Glacier National Park, which seemingly contradicts Sheehy's current statement that he was shot in Afghanistan. Related storiesThe National Park Service summary didn't reveal the name of the individual who reported that a firearm had discharged at the park, according to The Post. And Watkins suggested that hospital staff in Kalispell, Mont., told park dispatchers about the incident at Glacier National Park after Sheehy's initial lie about the shooting. Still, the lawmaker has successfully fought back his GOP opponents over the years, beginning with his first Senate election in 2006.

Many boomers are holding on to their large homes, stressing the housing market for younger buyers. For millennials with growing families, purchasing a home has become even more difficult. AdvertisementFor baby boomers with growing families in the 1980s and 1990s, homeownership was a natural next step in their adulthoods. But when their children moved out to pursue their own dreams years later, many of these boomers remained in their large homes.

The result of the court's 2022 decision has been a patchwork of anti-abortion laws in GOP-leaning states, while blue states have largely become havens for abortion rights. Biden's support for abortion rights is already well-established, but Trump in recent months has sought to soften his position on the issue. Despite the pro-Trump push on abortion, Kennedy Jr.'s position on reproductive rights hasn't been as clear as Biden's stance. In a February interview with The Washington Post following a controversial Alabama IVF court ruling, Kennedy Jr. said he felt that women "have the right to choose" regarding abortion. When Kennedy Jr. was asked what he'd do to shore up reproductive rights as president, he told The Post: "I don't know, you tell me.

According to the Post, a description of the incident contained within a federal citation noted that the gunshot left a bullet in Sheehy's right arm. AdvertisementSheehy ended up paying a $525 fine over his gun discharging in a national park, a decision that at the time was based on his report to the ranger.
