Since 2012, Marty ‘Lefthand’ Holder has been hosting the show Talking Lead with his good friend Zeke Stout. Together, they’ve been talking guns, interviewing some of the biggest names in the firearms industry and having fun with their fellow ‘Leadheads’.

Nature endows every human being, (notice that I don’t say only Americans) without any regard to age, gender or race – certain inalienable rights. One of those inalienable rights is self-protection. These inalienable rights cannot be interfered with by any other human being or government.

In other words, we don’t need a written piece of paper in order to defend ourselves. However, our founding fathers were wise enough to know that when forming this new government, good ideas and intentions can often get misguided. As no government can be trusted with our inalienable rights, they ‘enshrined’ them in the Bill of Rights.

Our right to keep and bear arms is the most crucial of our rights. If you take away our ability to defend ourselves, we are rendered defenseless. Defenseless creatures can be controlled against their will.

I refuse to be defenseless!

And lets not underestimate ‘knowledge’ as being one of the most effective ‘arms’ in our self-defense. So get out there and educate yourself on the safe use of your firearms. More importantly, educate yourself on your own individual rights.

As GI Joe says, ‘Knowing is half the battle’.

Keep your loved one’s close, and your firearms closer!
