The march went off without a hitch; local law enforcement were present and cooperative. State troopers also appeared, but left without disturbing the demonstrators. I talked with Chris Matthews, Executive … [Read more...]

This Saturday, members of Arkansas Carry, the state’s largest gun rights advocacy group, will host a “freedom walk” that will exercise their rights and show support for the recently enacted Act 746.

They’re just one lawyer’s opinion of the law. Imagine my … [Read more...]
