Video Recap: Rick Ector Appears on the Gun Owners of America Radio Show - August 14th, 2012

Last night I made another appearance on the "Gun Owners of America" radio show. I was interviewed by the host Mr. Bill Frady live via telephone.

During the show we discussed a variety of topics of concern to the gun rights community. As such, I was graciously afforded the opportunity to discuss a project that I had just completed: Our first "Personal Protection Awareness Weekend."

During the first day of our three day event, we had a day filled with educational seminars designed to empower citizens: Ms. Kalyn Risker (S.A.F.E.) discussed issues to empower women, Mr. Robert Louis Robinson II (It Takes A Village Y'all) discussed building stronger communities, Mr. Ed Sikorski (Michigan Taser Distributing) discussed using TASERs as a personal protection device, Officer Lawrence Smith (Detroit Police Department) discussed personal protection strategies, Mr. Phillip Hofmeister (Michigan Open Carry) discussed the legality of handgun open carry, and my organization (Legally Armed In Detroit) discussed Michigan Concealed Pistol Licenses.

During the second day of our event, I provided free shooting lessons for about 40 women at a nearby gun range. To accomplish this task, I had the support of the Target Sports II Gun Range who donated their classroom and range, the Black Hills Ammunition Company donated a case of 9mm FMJ ammunition, and several Firearms Instructors from the region who donated their time to support this event. One of the participants from this activity, Ms. Stephanie Jasky (FedUpUSA), also appears along with me on this broadcast.

The third day of our event was the Legally Armed in Detroit 2nd Annual Open Carry Dinner. We had a packed house of open carrying supporters of the 2nd Amendment who listened to awesome speeches by Mr. Ed Pratt (Gun Owners of America), Mr. John Pierce (, and Pastor Kenn Blanchard (Black Man With A Gun).

Please listen to the show and comment with your feedback and questions.
