When Cheryl Todd of Gun Freedom Radio invited me on their show, as part of their ‘Authors of Freedom’ segment, I jumped at the opportunity. It’s my goal to inspire others into the outdoors, hunting or shooting sports and GFR’s slogan is, “We engage, educate and inform.” It’s a perfect match. You can click the link below and listen in.
I appear halfway through hour one of the broadcast. Topics we discussed are hunting, the #GunVote, mutual respect among the firearms and hunting communities, the next generation, and encouraging others to use their voice in defending our freedoms.
Guests included in the ‘Authors of Freedom’ episode included Dave Kopp, Jerry Henry, myself, and Ron Sites. You can find information on each of us below.
Segment Guest List
Dave Kopp Gun Freedom Radio Radio Show Guest
Dave Kopp, is the president of the Arizona Citizens Defense League (AzCDL). Dave is an East Coast transplant and former computer programmer who is now “basically a lobbyist” for the activist gun rights organization, helping Arizona gun-owners face the formidable fight against anti-rights groups and legislation that limits Second Amendment Rights. The AzCDL is where grassroots activists take a stand, working at the Arizona legislature, to get strong pro-rights bills written and passed into law, while stopping bad bills.
Jerry Henry is the Executive Director of GeorgiaCarry.Org, Patron Life Member of the NRA, Georgia Carry Firearms Course Instructor and NRA Certified Pistol Instructor.
Jerry was born and raised in a gun friendly environment in North Central Texas and hunted from an early age.

Ron Sites is the President & Executive Director of Fighter Country Partnership and Fighter Country Foundation at Luke Airforce Base in Arizona.
A resident of Litchfield Park, Ron moved to Arizona in 1997 from Northern California. He has been married to his wife Monica for 15 years, and has two children – Emma and Anders. In September of 2010, while volunteering his time supporting Luke AFB, his own miss-perceptions of the base caused him to jump at the opportunity to be the President and Executive Director of Fighter Country Partnership, the non-profit organization supporting the men, women, families and mission of Luke AFB. He passed up the opportunity to join the Air Force 25 years ago, and is incredibly excited about his role supporting Luke AFB while educating the community about the valuable resource in the Valley of the Sun.
Many people ask, “Why does an Air Force Base need my support?” And “Doesn’t the Government pay for everything?” These are good questions with answers that may surprise you. Although it’s true that the Government does a great job in funding many base functions and programs, with the global war on terror, much of the budget has been reduced. In fact, over the last few years, many Bases have experienced budget reductions of 40% or more over the last few years. This eliminates funding for many events and human services programs. That’s where we come in.
