    Anyone familiar with Townhall Magazine??

    I've been asked to contribute to an article being written about the concealed carry trend in the U.S. I haven't heard of this magazine but it bills itself as being conservative.....

    Anyone have any knowledge of Townhall magazine?

    Very conservative political views. I don't think you'll get hurt.

    Excellent, thank you.

    My ass is still chafed by the Washington Post mess a few years ago....although the Style Weekly article I did after that was well done. So far, I'm batting .500. If I can go 2 for 3, I can make the Hall of Fame!

    I've never actually held a copy of the print edition, but the website, townhall.com, hosts a plethora of worthwhile columnists, including Michelle Malkin, Ken Blackwell, Dennis Prager, and for a while a couple years back, Mary Katharine Ham, who was a guest speaker at Lobby Day in 2010, I believe.

    Definitely the home crowd.

    Please peruse the online site.

    Suggest you contact Katie Pavlich. As you can see, she is friendly on RKBA issues.

    From bolded article, Melvin is the interviewer... Seriously!?

    Melvin: If women are shooting potential attackers, aren't they presuming guilt before innocence? What if a woman kills an attacker? Isn't that opening another whole legal can of worms?
    The guy must be a closet rapist or something. Unbelievable.

    What a way to pretend reality doesn't exist. The courts must presume a person is innocent. If those who are wronged must act with the same presumption even when we are being raped or murdered, then under what pretense are we to dial 911 and summon fire and rescue or police? Does this person also suggest that we refrain from filing police reports until we establish in some non-governmental court that an offender is guilty? Do we claim that fire is not really responsible for consuming our homes despite flames rising around us pushing one ever closer to the brink of consumption? It's a lunatic thought.

    Thanks! Even I'm not so stupid as to make a statement like this other Melvin dude.

    I just looked the guy up. He doesn't look like family. Probably had family that was part of some Melvin Family Holdings LLC or married into the name at some point since he doesn't appear to be native Scotsman.

    He doesn't look like family. You sure?

    MSNBC's Melvin Worries Rape Victims Might 'Presume' Guilt If They Shoot Would-be Rapists
    Melvin closed the segment by asking viewers, "what does your gut tell you? Should the Spartanburg County sheriff be urging women to carry a concealed weapon for protection?
    Well, if you go by looks or words ...
