Cooley Law School (Part 2) – Episode #137

Thank you to everyone who e-mailed me about how much they enjoyed the first part of the symposium at Cooley Law School entitled “To Bear or Not to Bear: Guns in Educational Institutions.”. This is now the second part and I will be posting the final part as part of episode #138 in a week from this release date. The final part is actually the debate and I believe you will find It quite enjoyable no matter whether you’re for or against.

Remember to mark your calendars for September 23, 24th, and 25th 2011 for the 26th annual Gun Rights Policy Conference which will be held this year at the Hyatt Regency Chicago O’Hare Airport conference center.

John Lott, visiting Senior Research Scientist at the University of Maryland College Park and author of More Guns, Less Crime: Understanding Crime and Gun Control Laws, Third Edition

James Manley, staff attorney with Mountain States Legal Foundation (argued on behalf of the state to challenge the University of Colorado’s ban on licensed concealed carry on campus).

John Johnson, Co-Director of the Campaign to Keep Guns off Campus and former Director of Iowans for the Prevention of Gun Violence (2000-2006).

Second Thoughts On Gun Amnesty Programs – Episode #135

As many of you long-time listeners to this podcast know this has been at one time a biweekly podcast, but due to my responsibilities at the Gun Rights Radio Network it is turned into less than reliable. So this being the first episode of 2011 and if you are taking a look at the website you will notice that we have changed the theme and that has more to do with updating some database problems on the back and than it does with the front end. So I just thought why not give the front and a facelift also.

Things I will discuss in the show:

Please visit the Gun Rights Radio Network and we would also like you to join us on our discussion forum.

You have until January 31, 2011 to get entered into the drawing to win a Winchester 94 30-30 from 1971 with its original box.

Thank You Blue Dogs – Episode #114

This episode is a little shorter than most due to the severe cold that hit me on Friday. Hopefully it’s bearable enough to listen to with all the throat clearing and sniffling. I just didn’t have the time or the patience to do a proper job editing this week. Sorry
