Shooting Straight with Stephen P. Halbrook

posted on June 2, 2022

Stephen P. Halbrook, a senior fellow with the Independent Institute, recently authored a piece for America's 1st Freedom about what firearms have "common-use" protections. In that piece, he asks a question that is uncomfortable for gun-control activists. To view that full article, click here.

He also took some time to speak with America's 1st Freedom Editor in Chief Frank Miniter about this issue and more.

Halbrook is also the author of 10 books, including The Right to Bear Arms: A Constitutional Right of the People or a Privilege of the Ruling Class? For more on him and his work, visit
