America's First Freedom - March 2022 - 51

WHAT WE MAY SEE IN 2022
A number of states could see significant action
on Constitutional Carry this year, and we will
do everything possible to ensure we add to the
list of 21 states that have embraced the original
intent of the Second Amendment by removing the
government " permission slip " for carrying a firearm
for self-defense.
Ohio seems the most poised to take the final
critical steps to enact Constitutional Carry. The
Ohio House of Representatives and Senate each
passed their own versions last year, so now it is a
matter of working with our allies in each chamber
to get one of the bills to the desk of Gov. Mike
DeWine (R). While Gov. DeWine has not taken an
official position on the legislation as we go to press,
he has signed a number of pro-gun reforms while he
has been at the helm in Ohio.
In Georgia, on the other hand, Gov. Brian Kemp
(R) has made his support for Constitutional Carry
very clear, making it one of his top legislative goals
for this year. At a Jan. 5 event, Kemp announced
that he will work with Georgia legislators to pass a
bill, with the hope to get it done by the Spring. With
the support of the governor and pro-gun leadership
in the Georgia House of Representatives and state
Senate, things look very promising for Constitutional
Carry in the Peach State.
Indiana could also see progress on Constitutional
Carry legislation. Last year, the Indiana House of
Representatives passed a bill, but it was never taken
up by the state's Senate. This year, both chambers
may be ready to take up this critical reform.
Other states could emerge as potential new
club members for 2022. With publication deadlines
being what they are, there could be any number
of states breaking ground on Constitutional Carry
legislation by the time you read this. That's why it is
critical that you not only keep reading these pages
for legislative updates, but that you get involved-
or stay involved-with volunteer programs and
activities coordinated through the NRA-ILA
Grassroots Division.
Just go to NRAILA.org/grassroots, or call
1-800-392-8683, and find out what you can do
to help advance critical pro-Second Amendment
reforms like Constitutional Carry. How involved you
are willing to get is entirely up to you.
Our goal is to ensure all law-abiding gun owners
can freely exercise their right to self-defense with
as little government intrusion into their lives as
possible. We look forward to working with you to
achieve that goal.

ountry music fans who have listened to the
genre through the years know Deborah Allen
for her smash hit, " Baby I Lied. " The single
was one of the first crossover songs at radio and helped ignite a successful
career spanning more than four decades, with equally popular songs
including " I've Been Wrong Before " and " I Hurt For You. " Allen has performed
on the Grand Ole Opry stage and even earned Grammy nominations
both as a songwriter and vocalist. Despite all of her success, she has
no plans to slow down anytime soon, with a new album set to be released
this Spring. NRA Country's Lisa Supernaugh took a few moments to ask
the dynamic Delta singer from Memphis, Tenn., a few questions.
LS: You've performed for millions of people all over this country.
What makes you proud to be an American?
DA: The people. The patriots. The heroes who've been willing to selflessly
give of themselves to keep us safe and protect the freedom we
enjoy every day. The United States of America is truly a beacon of hope
and light that shines throughout the world!
LS: Who taught you how to shoot?
DA: My daddy taught me how to shoot and respect a gun when I was a
young girl. He handed me his .22 rifle, showed me how to hold it up to
my shoulder, take aim and fire. It was kind of scary, but exciting. I got a
sense of feeling a little more grown up. I was proud that he trusted me
with the responsibility that comes with handling a firearm.
LS: Do you have a favorite personal firearm?
DA: My favorite firearm is a Colt .38 revolver because of its simplicity
and fire power. It's easy to use!
LS: What's ahead for you in the rest of 2022?
DA: Right now I am excited about having completed my new
album, titled " The Art Of Dreaming " which is set to be released by
Audium-Nashville-BFD in stores and on your favorite digital platforms
this spring! " Blue Collar Baby, " " Patsy Cline Crazy " and " All Or
Nothing At All " are slated to be singles early on, but I am proud
of the entire album. It's a good mix of my Memphis roots and my
Nashville influences. I can't wait to perform my new songs in theaters,
performing arts centers, fairs and festivals for all my friends and music
lovers all across America! I hope to see you there! Til then... visit me
