My first guest on the Tami Jackson Show* tonight will be Laura Carno.

Laura Carno is a Colorado citizen who understands that politicians are not kings, endowed with some birthright to parcel out our freedoms in tiny doses as they see fit.

Carno knows it’s not the job of hired civil servants to tell us what size soda to drink, which light bulbs to buy, or what kind of insurance our family needs.

Laura believes instead that we’re all adults who don’t need to be told how to live, who need to stand our ground when government gets the relationship with its citizens upside down.

When elected officials forget whose money they are spending and whose rights they are eroding, when they forget who’s the boss and who’s the public servant—then it’s up to citizens to speak out and reset the balance.

Laura is the author of the book, Government Ruins Nearly Everything: Reclaiming Social Issues from Uncivil Servants.

In the book description:

What government touches, it breaks.

So why do we ask it to solve our most pressing and personal issues: abortion, schools, guns and marriage? Has its failures with VA hospitals, the war on drugs, farm subsidies, the IRS, NSA leaks, and the war on poverty given us any reason to trust them?

Laura’s also the subject of a terrific article that’s right up my alley at The Daily Signal, “Meet the Colorado Woman Training Teachers to Use Guns to Stop School Violence.” The article begins:

This fall, some Colorado teachers will return to school armed with knowledge—and guns.

Laura Carno, author of “Government Ruins Nearly Everything: Reclaiming Social Issues from Uncivil Servants,” is bringing advanced firearms training to school teachers.

Listen in as Laura Carno and I have a conversation about the over-reach of big government and the vital importance of the Second Amendment!
