The Sun Lakes Republican Club will feature Scottsdale-based author and national gun laws expert Alan Korwin at its monthly meeting Tuesday, April 10, at 6:30 p.m. in the Arizona Room of the Sun Lakes Country Club, 25601 S. Sun Lakes Blvd., Sun Lakes, AZ 85248. The public is invited!
Korwin will present a program on “National Security Threats and Gun Ownership.” The ultimate political debate boils down to this: Is there anyone out there who wants to destroy America? Is there anyone who desires to kill our people? The left and the right agree here – yes, we do have some real hard-core enemies out there. They don’t care who you voted for. In the first part of this program, we’re going to clearly explore America’s security threats. Alan will help us examine the differences between news reports and reality, how freedom and guns are related, where the threats to freedom are coming from and what you can personally do about it all.
Speaker Alan Korwin is one of the nation’s leading experts on America’s gun laws, with 10 of his 14 books on that subject, and he has made more than 1,000 radio and TV appearances. In the second part of our program, Alan will examine Arizona’s gun laws, which have been ranked best in the nation two years in a row from the perspective of personal self-defense and defense of other people. In states where bans on personally carrying firearms have been repealed, crime has dropped, and stories of lives saved are numerous. How these hard facts should affect public policy, regarding street crime and the recent school shootings, is one of the ultimate political questions of the day that Alan addresses head-on in this no-holds-barred presentation.
Alan Korwin was invited by the U.S. Supreme Court to attend oral arguments in both D.C. v. Heller, which led to his 11th book, The Heller Case, and McDonald v. Chicago, in which his firm, Bloomfield Press, was an amicus. The cases affirmed the Second Amendment as an individual right and as applicable to the states, respectively.
Alan is a full-time freelance writer, consultant and entrepreneur with a 30-year track record. He is a founder and two-term past president of the Arizona Book Publishing Association, which has presented him with its Visionary Leadership award, named in his honor, the Korwin Award. He has received two national awards for publicity work as a member of the Society for Technical Communication, is a past board member of the Arizona chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists and has been active with the speaker’s bureau for the Washington, D.C.-based news-media watchdog, Accuracy in Media.
Several Arizona state elections candidates will provide brief introductions and offer an opportunity for meet and greets following the program. For more information, visit our website at www.slgop.org or contact Mike Tennant at 480-802-0178.
