We had our 2019 Louisiana Shooting Association Annual Meeting today. After serving 1 year as an alternate board member, and the 2 most recent years as a full board member, I was up for re-election. I have been re-elected for another 2-year term. Most of my involvement with the LSA is representing Louisiana gun owners during our state legislative session. I will continue to be active by providing testimony during the house and senate committees to protest or support bills. Erin Luper, our NRA-ILA state representative was present to provide a recap of 2018 and to talk about what [...]
School is back in session, but just before it started back, I spent a few days with the entire staff and faculty of a school in the area.

After finishing here, we took the training back on the road for another DFC course in [...]

I was happy to be invited to speak at the United States Concealed Carry Association's annual event, which took place in Louisville, KY this year. I spoke on Armed Home Defense and put a focus on a plan being much more than having a gun! If our ultimate goal is to keep ourselves and loved ones safe during a break-in, then we have to make sure our choices are not only helping us reach that goal but are also keeping the risk level as low as we can. Are you a member of the USCCA? [...]
