First, DRGO wishes all a happy and, in whatever way matters to you, successful New Year!
During the coming year, we will continue to cover everything we find of interest regarding gun rights vs. gun control, medical and health matters regarding firearm use, both research and “research” about the impact of guns in America.
Particularly relevant matters include the National Concealed Carry Reciprocity bill making it’s way to the Senate in Washington, the persistent ignorance about defensive gun use in epidemiology that purports to car about reducing firearms injury and death, and multiple court cases (some recent ones gratifyingly hopeful) that are defining the extent and limits of application of the Heller and McDonald decisions.
Remember that not only is “an armed society a polite society”, a responsibly armed society is also a safer one. That “gun control” means trigger discipline. And to keep your piece on Earth, with good will to men.
Best wishes to all!
