Well it appears as though DC Police Chief Cathy Lanier’s statements to 60 Minutes have raised some eyebrows. I found myself in the unique position of being the first national radio show to be able to comment live on the air within minutes of her telling the world that people should be prepared to “take down” the terrorists during an attack. Of course Anderson Cooper didn’t ask her exactly how citizens would do that, since she is personally responsible for keeping the vast majority of the citizens of Washington, D.C. unarmed.
Cooper likely asked her that question and, for whatever reason, it wound up on the cutting room floor. Let’s play with that for a moment. If she suggested citizens be armed, she would have to explain why she has granted only 48 CCW permits. (Wouldn’t you love to see the names on that list?) So my guess is she wouldn’t go down that road and open herself up to that blitzkrieg.
The other option is that her answer was so stupid that 60 Minutes dared not air it and remained silent hoping the uproar over the exposed hypocrisy would just go away. The uproar won’t go away, because any suggestion she may have made other than carrying and using a gun to stop a terror attack in progress isn’t even plausible…even 60 Minutes knows it. They know it…and we won’t ever let them forget it.
You see, when the unAmericans come clean, even by accident as Cathy Lanier did, they expose themselves as the hypocrites and liars they are. Everyone, and I mean everyone — including the liberal Democrat, socialist, elite — knows the only way to do what Cathy Lanier suggested we do, is to have, and use, a firearm. Their hatred of guns runs so deep that even when they suggest using a gun, they can’t bring themselves to actually “say” people should have guns. To do so would admit that Wayne LaPierre is right. The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.
See you on the radio!

Armed American Radio’s Daily Defense with Mark Walters
Some things are simply impossible to comprehend. “Gun Free Zones” are a perfect example. That any reasoning person could actually believe that a sign prohibiting the carrying of weapons, whether at a government office, a school, or a private business, will somehow cause a homicidal maniac (or a garden variety armed robber) to suddenly rethink their plans is almost laughable. Yet the push for restricting the rights of gun owners, especially those of us who carry for self-defense, continues. The reason is simple. Having failed to prevent the passage of carry laws in state after state, the fallback strategy of the gun-phobic activists has evolved to enacting as many ridiculous…Read More
I have a lot of friends in law enforcement, from street cops to sheriff’s deputies. And after what can only be called the cold-blooded assassination of two New York City police officers, they are all understandably nervous. After all, imagine being a cop today—watching news footage showing mobs of unruly “protestors” chanting, “What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!” Such violent rhetoric not only pumps up emotion, clouding the facts of the cases involved, it also can easily lead to the kinds of violence we have recently seen. Even more disturbing is the fact that those in authority who should have been doing everything to…Read More
I am a mother of three. I have a concealed carry permit. And I choose to carry a firearm. So it was beyond difficult to read the other day about the 29-year-old mother whose life tragically ended when her young son got ahold of her firearm and discharged it while they were shopping at a Walmart in Hayden, Idaho. I’m sure you’ve heard about this terrible occurrence by now. Tragedies like this cannot be overlooked or forgotten. They leave a solid knot in your throat and an empty hollowness in your stomach. You can’t help but ask what went wrong. What did go wrong? This young mother was doing everything…Read More
“Talk Radio personality and avid, lifelong BBQ’er Mark Walters, host of the nationally syndicated Armed American Radio programs was talking firearms one evening with George “The MadOgre” Hill during the live national weekend radio show when the subject of cooking came up and Mark decided to give out his recipe for one of his favorite slow smoked meats. When he finished and “out of the blue,” Mark asked George, his on-air firearm expert to pair up that recipe with a great firearm to wear on the hip while cooking it! George took the ball and ran with it and the “Grilling While Armed” segments were born!” A couple of…Read More
