Episode 135: The History of Self-Defense

Today Riley invites Dr. Steve Adams onto the podcast to talk about the history of self-defense. What sort of rights did people have during the Dark Ages and up through Colonial America while still under the rule of King George III? What important role did John Locke and other great philosophers play in shaping the thoughts and ideologies of our Founding Fathers? Was the 2nd Amendment just a convenient idea that made it into the Bill of Rights? Or did it serve a greater and much intentional purpose?

We hope this episode is enjoyable and especially relevant for you on Independence Day!
