Erich Pratt is the Senior Vice President for Gun Owners of America (GOA). GOA is a national grassroots organization representing more than two million Americans dedicated to promoting their Second Amendment freedom to keep and bear arms. #1) Let’s dive right in on the topic of Red Flag Gun Laws or ERPOs. What are they, and who would think these are a good idea for America. #2) Recently our mutual friend, Dianna Muller, founder of The DC Project, and 22 year veteran of the Tulsa Police Department testified at the House Judiciary Committee Hearing on the “Assault Weapons Ban”…she famously stated at that Hearing that she would not comply…a former law enforcement officer…would not comply with an “Assault Weapons Ban”…can you talk to us about why she, and millions of other law-abiding American Citizens, would hold such a view? #3) The Anti-Rights crowd loves to say that 98% of Americans – including gun owners – agree that we need Universal Background Checks. Yet, when I talk to people around the nation, I definitely do not get a sense that people want the government looking deeper into their personal lives, and keeping more detailed records about their Social Media history and medical records – whether you are a gun owner or not. So, how do we jive those two things? Could it be that people don’t really understand what a Universal Background Check really is and what it entails? #4) Until I was prepping for our interview today I hadn’t even heard the name Chuck Canterbury, so I have to assume that most Americans haven’t either. Turns out he has been nominated for the head position at the Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF)…but there are many Republicans and many gun owners who oppose his nomination. What can you tell us about all of that? #5)The FBI Uniform Crime Report for 2018 is out today. Looks like murder was down by about 7% from 2017. How does that square with the Mainstream Media's portrayal of violence in American today?
