I am a walking no-violent-crime zone.
When I carry a handgun, I ensure the safety of all of those around me.
I don’t replace the police- far from it. I’m the guy you want around when evil strikes so that everyone can stay alive long enough for the police to arrive.

[This was part of his speech at the #IWillNotComply rally in Olympia.
Brian sent me an email a couple days after the event. Part of the email said:
Maybe I’ll get to meet you at the next gun rally. I know my Dad and I would have liked to shake your hand, as we read you almost every day.
I thought about using your bigotry meme as the main theme for my speech.
I went instead for the “I own guns” theme as it is accessible without much thinking.
I did add the bit on at the end about two guys holding hands or an interracial kiss. That definitely comes from reading you.
I almost had tears rolling down my checks from reading that. I can’t begin to say how rewarding it is to make an influence like that on people.—Joe]
