Louisville Mass Shooting Demonstrates importance of Constitutional-Carry Laws to Keep People Protected

A tragic shooting took place in Old National Bank in Louisville, Kentucky, with five dead and 8 wounded. Liberal media pundits are now crying out for more gun control. But what if rather than grabbing other people’s guns, we were to grab guns to protect ourselves, families and neighbors?

Think about it. There are more than 100 million firearms owned by private citizens today, and rarely do we hear of law-abiding citizens going around killing people.

Our guest today says what we need is a different kind of gun control. We need to own and carry guns and be well trained in their usage to maintain proper gun control. Control the gun and aim it and fire if necessary to protect yourself and others. Welcome _______ (name the 2nd Amendment Foundation speaker) to the program.

What happened in Louisville and how might we limit casualties in similar situations in the future?

What is Constitutional-carry and how effective is it?

What are “red flag” laws and what is your principled position on them?

What kind of process would you recommend when it comes to selecting what kind of people should be allowed the right to Constitutional-carry? Military background? Something else?

The suspected gunman in Louisville reportedly had “mental health challenges.” What is your position on gun rights regarding people who are mentally ill?

Where can we learn more about the Second Amendment Foundation and its members?
