Joel was the heart and soul of Minnesota's 'Shall-Issue' permit law that was finally passed in 2003.
He'll be sorely missed.
Sad to hear, RIP my friend.
Another great writer I’ll never get to meet.
Prayer for his family.
Answer: Over a thousand years of inbreeding has produced our current crop of Islamists and she is just one example.
Ignore previous post....wrong thread.
I grew to love him as a writer and more importantly, grew to love the person that God designed him to be.
Condolences and prayers for the Lord's blessings to his family.
Look forward to meeting him in person in Heaven.
He was a hero who was willing to lay it all on the line to restore the Constitution and the rule of law. I will miss him.
I was just looking at my copy of “The Crimson Sky” yesterday and hoping that he would one day finish that story. I guess I’ll have to get the ending from him later.
Baruch dayan emet...
this is not the Last Jihad Joel Rosenberg
This Joel Rosenberg is probably best known for his Guardians of the Flame fantasy series. I enjoyed reading his books.
Yes, we’ll just have to wait for that one - he probably has lots more to tell us, now.
You’re right, he was a much better writer. This is the Guardians of the Flame author.
Unfortunately, it was not of Joel but one of his gun supporters.
Rosenberg, born in 1967 a "bit" younger than his "free joel rosenberg" supporter.
Play your cards right and you'll get to meet him.
Sad, he was a good guy.
few people in MN history have had such a large and positive impact on MN gun rights.
Joel is a year and 18 days older than I am. As some others have noted, author of The Guardians of the Flame series, as well as The Hero and related stories of a planet called Masada.
Joel C. is the guy who wrote The Copper Scroll, The 12th Imam, and other suspense/Christian thrillers.
OS, who feels like he lost another friend despite having never met the man...
I'm sorry for those friends, supporters and loved ones of Joel Rosenberg.
May the good Lord bless them.
S’OK. I’d miss Joel C, too, if not quite as much.
