Paul Ryan deer hunting

Paul Ryan’s guns

by Emily Miller - The Washington Times  |  published on November 21, 2012

Paul Ryan has become the most high-profile gun owner in the nation this year. The Republican vice presidential candidate is known as an avid hunter, but what’s less known is that he exercises his right to own a handgun for self protection.

This is a new feature exploring the firearms owned by high-profile individuals. The series will be a fun way for gun owners to learn about the specific makes and models and their intended use.

Hopefully, these stories will dispel the myth perpetuated by gun grabbers that owning more than one gun is a sign a person is a danger to society. On the contrary, gun owners are thousands of times more likely to use their weapon to prevent a crime than to commit one.

Mark Olcott is Paul Ryan’s brother-in-law, good friend and frequent hunting buddy. Mr. Olcott is married to the former Molly Little, who is Janna Little Ryan’s younger sister. “Paul would agree with me. We both married up,” Mr. Olcott said in an interview Friday before he went bowhunting for deer near his home in Frederick, Md. “Our wives are just incredible people. We’re lucky men.”

Mr. Olcott said the Wisconsin congressman got him interested in hunting. “When we met nine years ago, one of Paul’s first questions to me was whether I had a problem with him hunting, since I’m a veterinarian,” he explained “I said, ‘No, I’d be interested to learn more about it.’ And I’ve been hooked every since.”
