Today we talk about Gun Rights and the Law. Things change all the time and you need to keep up on the gun laws in your area. You need to actually read the law. It is weird and can contradict itself. We also talk about individual rights and balance.

Most of them are combat vets and firearms enthusiast that just want to help you get the right gear to defend yourself.

    In the theme of this podcast, just thought I’d let you know that Andrew Branca, lawyer and author of The Law of Self Defense, is going to be holding seminars in Texas late in the summer. http://lawofselfdefense.com/seminars/ . These seminars focus on state specific laws. I’ve signed up for the one in Garland in August.
