Marty Hayes, JD, is a world-famous firearms instructor and shooting champion. He’s the founder of the Firearms Academy of Seattle, and of the Armed Citizens Legal Defense Network. I’ve had the privilege of working with him for decades.
He has granted permission to pass along this link http://armedcitizensnetwork.org/our-journal/281-february-2013 to his editorial in the new issue of the ACLDN’s member newsletter. Having studied, lectured, and written on personal defense issues for decades, and after a long career in law enforcement from patrolman to chief, Hayes’ perspective carries a lot of weight.
Feel free to pass this along to others, along with anything else useful you might find in the Backwoods Home blog. The word needs to get out to a public that has been horrendously misinformed on this and related issues.
