On Saturday, July 30, I appeared on Gun Freedom Radio to discuss the recent Republican and Democratic Party Conventions from a constitutional perspective. I called both conventions, “disappointing, but predictable.” (Segment starts at 17:28)

“Both conventions from a constitutional perspective were disappointing, but not unexpectedly. I don’t really think that people that are in national politics, by and large, have a whole lot of concern for the Constitution. other than as a prop for the political theater that’s going on at a given time. And both parties use the prop differently, but nevertheless, it’s still a prop. So in that sense it was predictable, but disappointing.”

I talked in debth about the failure of both parties to follow the Constitution and what we can do about it. In the second segment, I also gets into a discussion about why we should not count on the federal government to protect our right to keep and bear arms at the state level.
