I first encountered Mr. Hardy when doing some research on 'Bowling for Columbine' when Thing1 was in high school and his Intro to Law teacher was pushing BFC as the "whole truth" on Columbine. He was kind enough to answer a couple of questions via email to help Thing1 battle his teacher.
Thanks to the nice people at MooreWatch I learned that Mr. Hardy has a new website. If you're a believer in the 2nd ammendment check his site out.
Oh - he shares my feelings for Barney.
