A hammer can’t build a home and a firearm can’t murder

It should be self-evident that a tool is merely an object of potential. It’s how the user employs the tool that determines what the tool creates or destroys. The recent tragedies in El Paso and Dayton rightfully have people upset, but there’s more to the story than the access to firearms. In today’s show, Kim discusses the harrowing experience of Dawna Hetzler. Dawna is a realtor. On August 4th—the day of the El Paso and Dayton shootings—Dawna was setting up an open house for a property in Commerce City. A man accosted her with a knife. Dawna, who has a concealed carry permit, was forced to discharge her firearm in self-defense. In her own words:

“If I didn’t have a firearm, I wouldn’t be here to talk to you.”

You can see Dawna’s full interview with 9 News in the embedded video.

Colorado is at the vanguard of those pushing back against the National Popular Vote Act

Trent England of the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs joins Kim to discuss the inherent flaws with the National Popular Vote Act.

England and Kim discuss the numerous reasons why the National Popular Vote is flawed as well as other subjects.
