I worked in NRA Publications for a decade and still consider everyone there my extended family. Great and decent people, every of them.
That’s why I’m excited about starting a twice-a-week news column for ShootingIllustrated.com. I was editor in chief of the print magazine for many years, nursing along the fledgling website before Ed Friedman and Jay Grazio turned it pro. It’s awesome today, mostly because of their efforts and that of the staff surrounding them. If you’re into firearms, you’ll love what you see.
My first installment takes a look at the Czech Republic’s effort to enhance the ability for its citizens to carry firearms for self-defense. It’s raised a few eyebrows across the pond, obviously, but the people there have a history of taking to arms when needed.
