Several months ago, I posted about a Pennsylvania woman who had her concealed carry permit revoked and restored by a sheriff after complaints that she was exercising her right to open carry a firearm in public. The woman, Melanie Hain, has suffered a number of personal attacks and threats because she exercised her right.
Recently, Hain agreed to an interview with a Patriot News reporter via e-mail. The full story is worth reading, as Hain articulates her rights very well. From the interview, proof that Hain gets it:
“Like it or not, I do not have to validate myself to the public for my actions…I have come to the conclusion that this is an impossible task. It may sound arrogant, but…the Constitution has guaranteed me a right, and there is nothing more to say about it.”
