Larry Correia is a bestselling author of thriller SF/fantasy fiction. He’s also a gun enthusiast. Now he’s written a nonfiction work on gun rights and the Second Amendment. I read an advance copy and found myself flying through the pages – it’s super-interesting and engaging, even to someone like me who’s been a shooter and gun-rights supporter and part of this world for many years. The book is In Defense of the Second Amendment, and it comes out on Tuesday.
I thought it would be nice to ask him some questions, which are featured below. As usual, the article is free to everyone, but comments are limited to paid subscribers.

Before, we could only speculate. Now we know: the “Russian threat” was, in this case at least, just a bunch of ordinary Americans, dressed up to look like a Red Menace.

Between now and the 2024 presidential election, we will see several issues emerge that will make today’s candidates handicapping worthless. For starters, there’s a war in Europe that’s rapidly escalating. It was mere weeks ago that Abrams tanks were off the table, and today several dozen are on their way. As night follows day, this will end with tactical nukes.
And then, we find that Pfizer is developing ever more toxic viruses, so it can sell us more shots to cure whatever diseases the viruses cause. To be followed by a drug for the medical problems caused by the vaccine. Meanwhile, athletes and young people in perfect health are toppling over with heart attacks.
Meanwhile, the WFP is predicting a shortage of wheat and corn, increasing food prices, and a new global recession.
The next American President may be chosen to repair the damage caused by war, pestilence, famine, and death.
The Apocalypse, anyone?
