Laura Carno joins the podcast to discuss this month’s policy focus: Gun Control Doesn’t Keep Us Safer. We expose the realities of increasing crime across the country, the common misperceptions about gun control, the solutions that have worked, and why public safety should be the first responsibility of elected officials.


Laura Carno is a senior fellow at Independent Women’s Forum, a political media strategist, and the Founder and Executive Director of FASTER Colorado, an organization that trains armed K-12 school staff at no cost to the school. Through her media company, I Am Created Equal, Laura helped to recall the Colorado State Senate President in 2013 over his gun-control agenda and his refusal to give his constituents a fair hearing. Laura also founded a local government watchdog organization in Colorado Springs, called, that protects the interests of taxpayers from government overreach. Laura is the author of Government Ruins Nearly Everything: Reclaiming Social Issues From Uncivil Servants.
