Episode 27: A Recent Election, Armed Veterans, the Antis, and Range Etiquette

We’ve got plenty to talk about this time, folks. Let’s see here…first, there was a recent election in Virginia, an election where the antis won. We’ll talk about why that happened, from a non-Republican, and pro-2A Liberal, point of view.

Recently, an Army Veteran was banned from her disabled daughter’s school, it appears because she got her carry permit (a lawful act) and was encouraging others to lawfully do so. We’ll discuss that, too. Should this be happening?

Last year, right after Christmas, I had encountered the Code Pink folks doing a protest at a gun show. I had done a counter-protest, but I couldn’t find anything showing our interaction. Thanks to Rhett Rhebold over at “Story of America” (http://www.storyofamerica.org), we now have it. You will hear both sides of the argument, theirs, and mine.

And finally, we discuss something near and dear to my heart: Range Etiquette. Thanks to listener “Have Blue” for this suggestion. With all the new gun owners, this matters, so we won’t be “stealthy” about it. 🙂 Range Etiquette really does matter, folks.

I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving. Regardless of your religious beliefs (or not), every day is a day to give some thanks…even if it’s just for being alive that day. Since we’re coming up on the one-year anniversary of the terrible massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary, I think this point takes on an especial importance.

  1. Yep, you nailed the problem with our elections these days, both sides running to their base, no one putting up a centrist candidate. The Lt. Governor candidate on the Republican side was crazy bad. The bible thumping crap among other issues tarnishes their brand.

    • Hey mudpuppy98, can you give an informed opinion, without delving into anti-Christian bigotry? Someone who exhibits core values based on deeply held religious convictions should be respected.

  2. You are the type of liberal that I would actually LIKE to see running for public office. Have you ever considered it?

    I’m not joking.

    • Well, you’re very kind. Funny you mention it, because my cameralady had suggested the same thing a few years back. Just over 5 years ago, I never thought I’d be doing a pro-2A podcast, either, so who knows what the future might bring?
