My friend and co-host of The Polite Society Podcast Rachel Malone founded and heads Texas Firearms Freedom. Rachel is a professional musician, a music teacher, and a certified firearms instructor. She has been a stalwart in the battle for both open carry and constitutional carry in Texas. Rachel has lobbied both the Texas Legislature and the Texas Republican Party on behalf of gun rights. She has had to battle not only the traditional enemies of freedom like Moms Demand Action but some of the older, hide-bound, gun groups in Texas in her quest for carry rights. Lest I forget to mention it, Rachel is only 30 years old.
To advance the cause of gun rights in Texas and especially constitutional carry, Texas Firearms Freedom is holding Texas G.O.L.D. on March 2nd in Austin. It will be held in conjunction with the Republican Party of Texas Legislative Day which has constitutional carry as one of its legislative priorities.
The Texas G.O.L.D. training and HQ will be at Rm. 130 in the John H. Reagan Building on the Capital Complex. Registration is free but you will need to do so if you want the T-shirt.
As an aside, this was the first time that I’ve visited the Texas Firearms Freedom webpage even though I’ve known Rachel for a couple of years now. The layout and graphics would put many commercial websites to shame.
