NRA Blog provided readers with a concise bio of Hawkins:
AWR Hawkins writes for Breitbart News and frequently contributes to popular news programming, sounding off with intellect and passion on current events in his trademark southern drawl. AWR routinely appears on NRATV’s Cam & Co., among others, discussing truth in journalism, conservative politics, and American freedoms, including the Second Amendment. He was a Visiting Fellow at the Russell Kirk Center for Cultural Renewal, and he holds a PhD in military history from Texas Tech University.
On October 18, 2016, Breitbart News launched a podcast titled “Bullets with AWR Hawkins.” The podcast, which is hosted by Hawkins, focuses on the relevant gun news of each week while also giving podcast subscribers the opportunity to hear from leaders in the gun rights movement.
