The TorchCast #2: Keith Carmichael on The Convention of States (Video)

There are a lot of questions surrounding the idea of the states calling an Article 5 convention to amend the United States Constitution.

Should we worry about a runaway convention? Is that possible?

Is it a threat to the Second Amendment?

Is it a Con-Con?

Keith Carmichael is the Missouri Director for the Convention of States movement. He spoke with me for 20 minutes about the effort and answers these questions.

The TorchCast #1: Sen. Kurt Schaefer Discusses Amendment 5, Felons and Ferguson (Video)

As I announced this morning in the newsletter, I’ve begun production of a series of videos for The Missouri Torch, beginning with The TorchCast, a 10-15 minute weekly interview with players in the Missouri political scene. This week, I had the pleasure of speaking with Sen. Kurt Schaefer regarding the lawsuit currently being discussed in the Missouri Supreme Court regarding a felons right to bear arms under the Missouri Constitution. We also talked about the new committee doing the investigation into Gov. Nixon’s botched handling of the Ferguson situation. Sen. Schaefer was voted to be chair of that committee.

Here’s the first of hopefully many. Let me know what you think in the comments:
