Kate has a strong firearms and martial arts background. Although she was not brought up around firearms her fighting spirit eventually brought her to that next logical step. She is an NRA Instructor and a certified Arizona Concealed Carry instructor as well. Her thirst for knowledge has led her to training facilities around the country, Smith & Wesson, Lethal Force Institute (now Massad Ayoob Group), Chapman Academy, Gunsite to name a few. Isshin Ryu was her style of choice in martial arts but she has continued to add to that background with ground fighting, hand to hand, weapon retention and other varients of weapon and empty hand techniques. Through martial arts and shooting competitions over the years she honed her skills.
Kate is very passionate about the United States of America and all it stands for particularly the 2nd Amendment and our Constitution. Her skill set and passion came together in 1992 when she ran for US Senate in NH as a Libertarian candidate. It also sparked an early interest in the power of radio. Today she brings all that passion and skill together for you to the airwaves with Talking Guns!!!
