Congratulations to George Mason Law School Dean Dan Polsby, who this week was named the recipient of the St. Gabriel Possenti Society's Medallion of Honor as well as the "Noble of the Week" by the Washington Times:
Noble: Daniel Polsby, the gun owner's intellectual and recipient of the St. Gabriel Possenti Society's Medallion of Honor.
The St. Gabriel Possenti Society is a gun-rights advocacy group named for a heroic Catholic seminarian who single-handedly rescued the town of Isola, Italy, from predatory bandit-soldiers in 1860. St. Gabriel's sharp-shooting forced the intruders to drop their weapons and flee. The society promotes St. Gabriel as the Patron Saint of Handgunners.
When announcing the award, Society Chairman John Snyder said of Mr. Polsby: "[He] is the leading academic champion of the individual civil right of law-abiding American citizens to keep and bear arms in the United States today." Mr. Polsby, dean of the George Mason Unversity School of Law, has written some of the most influential articles in support of gun rights. He recently helped lobby to overturn the D.C. gun-ban statute, calling it unconstitutional.
For supporting the Second Amendment and the right to bear arms, Daniel Polsby is the Noble of the Week.
