Register for Gun Rights Policy Conference 2014

Just an early reminder that the FREE 29th Gun Rights Policy Conference will be held in Chicago Illinois this year at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. The dates for this conference will be September 26, 27th, and 28th 2014.

If you listen to my podcast at all you know I’m a huge fan of GRPC. Had the opportunity to speak at two of the last conferences and would just like to encourage all of you to preregister.

If you’re serious gun rights advocates than this is the one conference you need to be at this year. The last conference in Chicago Illinois set all kinds of attendance records for the conference. And we need to make it bigger and better this year.

Follow-Up to Evansville Indiana Lawsuit

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.

Here is a link to a letter from Guy Relford the attorney of Benjamin A. Magenheimer.

SAFR – Episode #122

Please accept my apologies for such a long delay for this episode to come out. I have been having some technical problems with the computer I use to record and edit my podcast and just before I went back to work after being laid off I had some plumbing problems around the house that kept me from getting the episode helped.

This is though the second attempt at recording this episode. The first I felt I was a little too angry in the episode to release it. Some of things I was reading about the woman who left her gun in her purse and then tried to enter the courthouse just really irritated me and I decided not to release the angry episode.

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
