The Wisconsin native is a world class athlete who won 14 medals in ESPN’s Great Outdoor Games, and who has won nine world titles in log-rolling at the Lumberjack World Championships, including three after being severely injured as an infantryman on a convoy patrol in Iraq.

Salzman notes that there was a time not all that long ago when Esquire actually defended the essential nature of the Second Amendment.
