Every person has unique opportunities to go places and/or do things that others rarely get to do. As an attorney with a practice focus in firearms, I try to take up such opportunities. These make me a more informed person and attorney.
I have come to believe a life well lived is one filled with diverse and rich with experiences. What I have observed with all of this is that life is full of examples of law at work. These examples demonstrate America’s legal system of laws, judges, courts and lawyers and their impact each of each and every day—the rule of law is what makes America work.
Recently, I had this specific focus when I was invited to visit Gemtech’s manufacturing facility. Gemtech is a global developer and manufacturer of suppressors. From suppressor and related (federal) patents hanging on Greg Latka’s office wall to the manufacturing floor, where each item is carefully tracked to ensure compliance with federal firearms’ manufacturing laws, I was proud to be a small part of America’s legal system.
Gemtech makes me proud of American law and ingenuity.
To be an engaged member of our society and learn something new with each experience, I would encourage you to pay attention to details—or the small print—and you too will be proud that literally everything you do each and every day works because of our rule of law. This will help you make the most of any legal experience you have, making you a better legal consumer and citizen, a part of maintaining our system.
