By now, I am sure that you have all seen the news clipping that is making it’s rounds on facebook. I have to admit it is a bit embarrassing to see my personal information not only posted on facebook but in the local Minnesota newspapers as well. You see I do a lot of missionary work with my church and christwire. I am on the road an lot, and there have been a lot of threats against my life over the last year. I have to protect myself.
I do apologize for the language that I used with the State Trooper, but I was in a hurry to get to an important meeting with some Baptist Elders at the First Baptist Church of Hassman, and he was being very rude. I was only going 7 miles over the speed limit. Which in most civilized parts of the country (such as the south) will not get you pulled over. In many states outside of the south you have to give them your Concealed Carry Permit when pulled over as the driver.
For him to keep on asking me about my firearms I thought was very rude and a bit unamerican of him. I would have expected better from a lawman. I am very proud about my support and use of my constitutionally guaranteed second amendment right to bear arms. I am very proud and protective of it.
Besides my embarrassment, I am a bit outraged that this newspaper used my author image without my written permission.
