Mandeville, LA Its clarification from the Wounded Warrior Project, a firearms engraver, the founder of MarineParents.com, and more, this week on Tom Gresham's Gun Talk® Radio, the original nationally-syndicated radio talk show about guns and the shooting sports.
The CEO of the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), Steven Nardizzi, will be a guest on this Sunday's show. This follows a week where show host Tom Gresham shared his email exchange with the PR director of WWP in which she indicated that the organization does not do interviews with media or appear at events which are related to guns. This set off a firestorm of reaction by hunters and shooters, many of whom have donated to help wounded veterans as well as putting on fundraising hunts and shoots for the WWP.
"I'm really glad that the Wounded Warrior Project is coming on the show to clarify their position on this," said Gresham. "It has been really confusing to see them taking donations from firearms manufacturers as well as hunting groups, and then to be told that they won't appear in public with us. The latest communication from WWP is that this is all a big mistake and that they want to clear it up with me this Sunday. "
Also on this Sunday, its the founder of MarineParents.com, Tracy Della Vecchia. Originally founded in response to parents' needs to find information and to Connect & Share® with one another during deployments, MarineParents.coms services and programs have now expanded to support Marines, and to support and educate Marine families. One such program is Purple Heart Hero Support, which provides assistance and services to wounded Marines. For more information, and to donate or volunteer, visit http://www.marineparents.com/.

I’m working on a major mess here next to my desk.
I use an upper shelf on one of my bookcases to hold ammo, cleaning supplies, gun parts, etc. etc.
The shelf broke this afternoon and stuff is scattered everywhere.
(I’d planned on organizing it someday but today really wasn’t the day.)
Went out to the range today to do a few final practice shots with the new slug gun. Had to turn around and come home because the range was completely packed. I’ve been using this public range out on DNR land since the early 70’s. I’ve never seen so many people there. Cars double and triple parked in the lot and cars and trucks parked out on the gravel road in both directions. It would have been a minimum of a two or three hour wait.
Strange thing was, probably only a handful of them were hunters getting ready for deer season. The other hundred or so out there were general public primarily shooting handguns.
I don’t know if it was the nice weather or the results of the election that brought this on. It was nuts!
