Episode 30: The Ninth Circuit Court Ruling on California Carry, and Talkin’ ‘Bout AR’s

That Ninth Circuit Court ruling that struck down California’s restrictive carry laws was a pretty seismic event. 🙂 Therefore, we figured it deserved some more in-depth discussion. This is serious business here, folks. It’s so serious that it’s got the antis all in a tizzy. Their spin machines have gone into Overdrive for this one. We’re going to discuss not just the ruling, but *why* the antis are wrong on this.

Then, we’ll get into guns, specifically AR’s, but from a slightly different perspective. If you’re considering buying an AR-15 rifle, I’d like to suggest to you a variant of it, called the AR-10. Nothing against the AR-15, but in my view, this .308 Winchester variant is the more versatile of them and would make a better all-around household rifle. Were I to buy an AR, it would be this type.

Getting used to running my own WordPress server, and iTunes connectivity

One of the neat things about being a systems engineer is that you’re always learning new stuff. Information Technology never stands still.

You’re seeing an example of it here, right now, with this new WordPress server. Up until recently, I’d never worked with WordPress or any other Weblogging or podcasting software. Gotta say, it’s a handful! But it’s fun.

One of the (many) things I’m figuring out how to do is get this new box to reconnect with the existing iTunes feed. Once I do, iTunes listeners will once again start getting notifications when a new episode comes out. I am definitely working on this.

Hmm…I wonder what Steve Jobs would think of this podcast…? 🙂

Episode 29: Cool Casting, Unintended Consequences, and Breaking News from California

It’s been a busy last couple of months.  And it’s cold and snowy–perfect weather for casting!  We’ll talk about that.  Looks like I’m about to go through 200gr, .45-caliber “boolits” like politicians go through money.

Then, we have some breaking news, as of February, from California.  Can you believe it–the Ninth Circuit Court actually ruled in favor of California gun owners??  Yes, it’s true!  And the antis are definitely sucking on lemons right about now.

Next, we explore a little case of “Unintended Consequences”.  An anti, who advocated for more gun restrictions like the New York UNSAFE Act, just got arrested…under one of the very laws he was advocating for!  This case shows the futility and even craziness of such laws.

And finally…for those of you who keep saying, “IT CAN’T HAPPEN HERE!”…think again.  It happened to an American Citizen.  He’s going to tell you about it.

As always, this is all very serious business.  Rights are like that.

The Liberal’s Gun Corner is BACK!

In light of the closing-down of the Gun Rights Radio Network (GRRN), we decided to continue this podcast, the Liberal’s Gun Corner, on our own Web site. That means I’m getting to learn how to use WordPress, but since I’m a systems engineer, this is proving to be a fun project. This should also reduce times for episodes to appear.

I’d like to publicly thank Mark “Mr. GRRN” Vanderberg for starting the Gun Rights Radio Network and running it for all the years that he has. Without him, I would never have even considered doing a podcast like this one.
