There have been some developments after my interview with Guy Relford in the last episode of the podcast. It appears that some people that should know better have decided that it’s a good idea to attack Mr. Benjamin A. Magenheimer for exercising his rights under not only the Second Amendment of the United States but also under the Indiana Constitution and Indiana law.
Mr. Benjamin A. Magenheimer the plaintiff in the case against the city of Evansville was doing nothing more than exercising his right to carry a firearm. Indiana state law does not limit our right to carry only a concealed firearm. Far too often though individuals who are licensed to carry a firearm in our state are not familiar enough with the law to know that there is no reason why legally they cannot carry openly. So it causes confusion and when someone does at sometimes frightens individuals who are more ignorant of our laws.
Of course the media does not help and for some reason some of our citizens would much rather take the position that the media is pushing then using their own thought processes and thinking it out thoroughly before commenting in public. That is very unfortunate.
This past weekend I spent at the Gun Rights Policy Conference in Chicago in a room with nearly 800 Illinois residents who are working hard to have just the slimmest of rights that Indiana residents already take for granted. Let’s not go backwards with our freedoms and please think before you comment on something you have no direct knowledge of.

City Attempts to Bar Man from Offices – This appears to be the reason why he southbound wanted to have a ban on guns on city property. I was notified that his carry license has been revoked by the Indiana State police for not being a proper person.
