Larry Pratt is the executive director of Gun Owners of America, an organization of some 300,000 Americans dedicated to promoting their 2ndAmendment freedom to keep and bear arms.

The high profile trial of George Zimmerman is now underway. He is the man accused of killing 17 year old Travon Martin. The jury makeup alone is interesting as it is an all female jury numbering only 6. All went through some intense questioning before being seated. Jim and Larry look at the possible impact of the “Stand-Your-Ground” law as well as the racism of the media in relation to this trial.

In addition, a number of other gun issues are going on so Jim and Larry also discuss the recall of Colorado Democratic lawmaker John Morris who supported gun control, Milwaukee (Wisconsin) County Sheriff David Clark, IRS agents “accidentally discharging guns 11 times”, Vice President Biden who is marking progress on executive action to reduce gun violence, President Obama’s signing off on the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty, and more.
