“I WILL NEVER…” PART 1: CORE BELIEFS

A few months ago, I posted an article The Hard Questions – Gracie’s Fireside Chat. This article posed a handful of questions that every person should consider before they carry a gun, or expect to use one for defense. It was also a key article in my series on the defensive mindset.

MREs, CRKT KNIVES, AND WHY YOU DIDN’T SEE ME AT THE NRA ANNUAL MEETING

I’d like to start out by apologizing to the many people who emailed and tweeted me (is that the right verb?)  hoping to get together at the NRA Annual Meeting this year. It was really hard for me to give up going, as I was looking forward to meeting my fans and so many other great people – in particular my personal role models Julie Golob and Massad Ayoob. However, after much consideration, I realized that it was a no-brainer; I needed to stay and help our heroes.… Read the rest
