Gifting Guns; Pro-Gun Doctors; New Rifles - This Week on Tom Gresham's Gun Talk

What's the best way to give a gun as a gift? Plus, a new study showing an increase in concealed carry permits does not cause an increase in violent crime, a company giving their employees guns (and a safety course) for Christmas, the latest rifles from Remington, and more, this Sunday on Tom Gresham's Gun Talk®, the original nationally-syndicated talk show about guns and the shooting sports.

Johnny Dury, of Dury’s Gun Shop, talks with Tom this Sunday about giving guns as gifts this holiday season – including important tips to remember. Dury’s also started a gift card program – as in, they are accepting all major retailers’ gift cards as store credit towards a purchase. Find out more at https://www.durysguns.com/.

The group DRGO, or Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership, is no stranger to Gun Talk listeners. DRGO founders and members have talked with Tom in past years about their mission: “DRGO educates health professionals and the public in the best available science and expertise about firearms, including gun safety and preventing injury and death through wise use and lawful self defense. We teach what science shows—that guns in responsible hands save lives, reduce injuries, and protect property by preventing violent crime.” That latest member to join Tom on Gun Talk is Dr. Mark Hamill, a former police officer, who recently published a study that showed an increase in concealed carry laws did not lead to an increase in violent crime.
