Matthew is an attorney, mechanic, and gun policy expert. He works in constitutional law, with a main focus on the Second Amendment and taxation. Before law school, he ran a small shop where he would fix anything from motorbikes to airboat engines. His time as a mechanic gave him experience with fabrication, which later led him to experiment with building guns. Note that when we say “building guns,” we don’t mean pinning an upper to a lower and calling it his own. We mean he’s cut and welded steel until it talked. Suffice to say, he knows what he’s talking about when it comes to guns. He decided to focus on these areas of the law to fight the scourge of misinformation that plagues the community.
