Rick Henderson is passionate about many things - family, religion, politics and the right to protect oneself.

When he's out and about, there's about a 90 to 95 percent chance that he's packing. He said he occasionally finds himself on the University of Idaho campus, and once he has his enhanced concealed permit, he will carry a firearm there as well. He's not just a gun-nut, though, and carrying a weapon isn't something he just does because it makes him feel tough.
