RIP Joel Rosenberg, MN Gun Advocate

I didn't know him personally, But I would see him and his wife from time to time at the range I shoot at qualifing people for their carry permits.

Both his carry books are excellent reads. I think he gave a great perspective on how big a responsibility it is to carry. And good advice if the worse were to happen. His writing style was very straight forward and easy to digest.

I've heard many different opinions about Joe. Like him or not, he was a driving foce for gun rights and passage of MN right to carry. He put a ton of time and effort into the cause. He will be missed among Minnesota marksmen.

I was acquainted with Mr. Rosenberg through his novels, not his gun rights activism. His Guardians of the Flame fantasy series was one of my earliest favorites. His writing style was terrifically fun and engaging. He was a fine talent and I'll sure miss him.

Sounds like he was an all-around good guy: willing to stand up for his rights, long-time family man, great creative talent. We need more like him.
