Liston Matthews has been involved in the gun rights movement since 1971. He was involved in passage of the Tennessee carry law, and its improvements. He has testified before local legislative bodies. He has contacted politicians and had numerous editorial letters published. He believes that politicians must be carefully vetted at the local level, because few change their positions when they move to higher office.
Liston writes his own blog Knox Gun Guy, is an Ammoland contributor, and formerly wrote at Examiner.com.
