This is a special occasion for me. My Dad was in town two weeks ago for the Presidential Inauguration, and since I’d been wanting to do an episode with him, we took the opportunity to do that as well. This is the man whom I’ve been talking about being alive precisely because he had his gun with him that day.
We discuss a number of subjects, virtually all of them related to firearms policy. He and I share some views, and we don’t share certain others. That’s part of the Liberal’s Gun Corner. You don’t always just hear my own views ’round these here parts. We discuss the aftermath of the Newtown, CT shooting, “assault weapons”, gun registration, tracking, general firearms safety, and even the notion of confiscation and what to do about it.
This man has been around a lot longer than I have and is very wise. Whether you agree or not, his counsel is worth hearing and considering. Next episode, I’ll present another point of view for your consideration.
Music notes: the intro and ending music is “You Are My Sunshine”, from Dad’s album. He’s on piano, I’m on drums. 🙂
