Make sure to listen until the end for an exclusive discount!

 

Antonia speaks with rising star, a Christian rapper, apologist, and YouTuber, Ruslan, about his journey with embracing the Second Amendment and his career as a Christian rapper.

OC Gun Show: Let No Crisis Go to Waste/Refuge For the Weary

 

California State Senator Dave Min of Irvine and Katie Porter, from the US House of Representatives, Democrats, both attended the Orange County, CA gun show this weekend.  They were, reportedly, escorted by sheriffs and were kept far from the deviant potential gun-owners that they ostensibly came to observe.

Oddly enough, no media appears to exist about these visits, only local word of mouth and eyewitness accounts.  It appears that they may be biding their time on their anti-gun stances until the moment is slightly more favorable.  It can only be assumed that their strange appearances may be related to Dave Min’s bill to ban gun shows on government property, but they have not chosen to openly disclose their time at the shows.  Possibly because it would not be inflammatory enough for the restrictions they are advocating.

Join Jim and Greg as they unload on teachers’ unions for rejecting CDC guidelines for schools and demanding even more money from taxpayers as they refuse to embrace in-person learning. They also rebuke President Biden for immediately demanding gun control legislation in the wake of mass shootings. They also welcome Sen. Joe Manchin’s opposition to such legislation but are cautious since Manchin could go wobbly at any moment on any issue. And they also have quite a bit to say after  Senators Tammy Duckworth and Mazie Hirono briefly vow not to confirm any future Biden nominees unless they are minorities or gay.

The Boulder Colorado shooting has already started the blame game. The usual suspects are using this tragedy to try and disarm responsible gun owners. Here is what I’m hearing about the suspect. He was an ISIS sympathizer according to a White House source, and Biden was informed of this. Preview Open

Join Jim and Greg as they are glad to see at least a few House Democrats wanting little to do with Nancy Pelosi’s effort to steal a House seat away from the GOP. They also mourn the victims of the mass shooting in Boulder, Colorado, and rip into the constant habit of partisans trying to  instantly blame their political rivals for the evil actions of someone else. And they not very impressed with Sidney Powell’s assertion that she can’t be sued by Dominion for defamation because no reasonable person should have believed what she was saying about the 2020 elections.

Media Narrative Flips in Boulder Shooting

 

The mass shooting at a Boulder, CO, grocery store left 10 dead Sunday. As the gunman was taken into custody, bluechecks flooded Twitter with their hot takes. The cops didn’t kill the murderer because he was a white male promoting white supremacy, obvs. On Monday, the shooter was identified as Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa and the narrative flipped in an instant. Back in 2015, I created the following chart and it still holds true:

I was catching up with an old friend, and during this long phone conversation he mentioned that he had bought one or two expensive air rifles – of Spanish manufacture, I think he said. He told me he doesn’t own any firearms, and he certainly isn’t a survivalist of any sort, but he likes the […]

How Long Will the Ammunition Shortage Last?

 

If you’re like me, you’re extremely frustrated about the difficulty in finding ammunition for your guns. The shortage is becoming a long-term problem, and those of us who like to keep our skills honed are finding it difficult to practice. The situation is dire and is predicted to last through 2021:

One Scottsdale, Arizona, based ammunition manufacturer, Ammo Incorporated, is currently facing an $80.1 million backlog in orders despite working around the clock.

Gun Confiscation Is Intolerable

 

We don’t need to surmise that the Democratic Party wants to ban all guns; not only select types of guns. Democrats have advocated against gun ownership for decades and their political kin in Europe show us their vision. Thus, a proposal to seize high-capacity magazines or particular weapons by way of financially penalizing ownership is reasonably assumed to be the first step of several toward confiscation of firearms generally.

This must be a line in the sand for freedom-loving Americans. One gun grab cannot safely be assumed to be the last. If such seizures are tolerated by degrees, we will be unarmed by the time need of resistance becomes unavoidably clear.

Join Jim and Greg as they explore some of the ideas on China that ought to unite conservatives, moderates, and even some Democrats. They also shudder as Bernie Sanders is about to become chairman of the Senate Budget Committee and plans to use the reconciliation process a lot to avoid Senate filibusters. And they unload on Don Lemon for demonizing all Trump voters because some repulsive figures supported him too.

Joe Biden has pledged to beat the NRA in 2021.  So he is going to war with the American people.   The NRA’s influence isn’t what a lot of people seem to think.  They don’t have a lot of money to spread around.  What money they contribute to political campaigns are mere token amounts.  What they […]

On Wednesday I went to the sporting goods store with MushroomAlgae, and now I am the owner of a Glock 19 handgun. Tomorrow we are going to the gun range so I can practice with it and he can practice with the revolvers he bought. Sounds like just in time before the craziness really starts. […]

Operation Fast and Furious: The Forgotten History of the ATF’s Notorious Gunwalking Scandal

 

The ATF isn’t all bad. In fact, they had a policy of letting illegal gun purchases go between 2006 and 2011. It ended up getting U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry killed on December 14, 2010, and let Mexican criminals get enough guns that they were found at over 150 crime scenes were Mexican citizens were either killed or maimed. And some of the guns were used in the November 2015 terrorist attack in Paris at the Bataclan. But other than that, it turned out just fine.

(In case you’re not picking up on it, we’re laying on the sarcasm very thick right now.)

Join Hubwonk host Joe Selvaggi and his conversation with former Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis who shares his views on the features and controversies of the police reform bill on Beacon Hill.

Guest:
Ed Davis has been in law enforcement for 35 years from his role police officer, detective, and commissioner in his home town of Lowell to serving as the Boston Police Commissioner from December 2006 until October 2013. Commissioner Davis has worked internationally on police issues in Singapore, London, Northern Ireland, Jordan and Israel. Commissioner Davis served on the Police Executive Research Forum’s (PERF) Board of Directors and was a founding member and first President of the Massachusetts Major City Chiefs Association. Mr. Davis is now  President and CEO of The Edward Davis Company, a business strategy and security services firm.

Join Jim and Greg as they wrap up the week with three big stories. First, they recoil at the radical anti-Israel statement from Georgia Democrat Raphael Warnock. They also fire back at the Democrat in Texas who wants to limit when you can defend your life and property. And they react to a Los Angeles Times editor urging Sen. Dianne Feinstein to resign so Gov. Gavin Newsom can appoint both black and Latino senators.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the news that Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan will not run for re-election next year following her disastrous handling of the so-called Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) and the city slashing funding to police. They also cringe as Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan releases a video before inauguration day showing he has plans to run for president in 2024. And they have a lot to say about the anti-gun mall Santa who told a small boy he couldn’t bring him a Nerf gun.
