As someone who loves golf and is big into guns I find it pretty cool that David Feherty has a carry permit. I've heard it reference it a couple times but wasn't sure if he was serious or not. Based on this interview in March of 2010 he was. Feherty is just awesome!
CONNELL BARRETT: Congratulations on being an American, David. Have you packed on the pounds and started listening to Toby Keith yet?
DAVID FEHERTY: Have you seen me lately? I'm already fat. But now, I'm a fat American.
CB: How did you celebrate last week?
DF: I'm very passionate about veterans issues. I'm involved with the Troops First Foundation. After the swearing in, 9 or 10 soldiers came down from Walter Reed and we went on a boys' trip, to partake in the great American pastime of shooting and blowing up stuff. It was a hunting trip at Rough Creek Lodge, southeast of Dallas [where Feherty lives]. You can do bird-hunting and deer-hunting. It was a 10-bedroom house. We had nine soldiers, but they take up less space because they're amputees. They're very portable. You can stack them.
CB: What was your first thought after you took the Pledge and it was official?
DF: I thought, "Where can I buy a .45 Automatic Colt Pistol?"
DF: Oh yeah. I'm filing for a concealed-carry permit as soon as possible. This is Texas. A law-abiding citizen with a concealed weapon who respects guns can be a very useful person, with all these shootings around the country. If I'm out with my wife and daughter, or hear a bump in the night, I'll be ready. When I dial 9-1-1, I only need them to come and do clean up.
