Tv crew or you’ll find exclusive content. You can’t get anywhere else. Okay let’s get going with the podcast here. Because what i want to address is the fact that i believe. We are in the middle of a civil war without one single shot being fired and no guns being used. And i’m going to explain exactly what i mean. Here’s step by step because what we’re seeing think is a war for our country a war for our culture certainly a war for our constitution. The war for the bill of rights the for the second amendment and all of it is being fought right now right before our eyes and some of us are involved in some of us are not but no deaths are being recorded. because it’s not that kind of war and no shots are being fired because again. It’s not that kind of war. Let me give you an idea. A very famous quote from sons. Who who wrote the art of war is that the supreme art of war subdue the enemy without fighting. And we’ve been told depending on which commentators wanna listen to that. The left has been doing that to us for a long time. That the whole saul alinsky theory was to win without fighting and do so incrementally and so incrementally we’ve lauch parts of our country is founded we certain of our rights as founded. But i submit to you that we’re fighting back so let me give you some examples here and hopefully those will encourage you. That is my goal with the podcast. Right now is to be encouraging to help you. Walk away from listening to this. Podcast with a lift in your shoe feeling better about the country feeling better about the battle feeling better about life and hopefully engaging in the battle a bit more than you do right now perhaps engaging at all in case. You’re not engaged. I i suspect that you are engaged. Because you’re listening to this podcast and you wouldn’t be if you weren’t engaged but let me go through the battle here first of all. The battle is being fought on a whole lot of different levels in different ways in different places. One example is between the federal government and the states. The states in many ways are taking back their authority from the federal government and are battling it out for example we’re seeing more and more second amendment sanctuaries throughout the country fact. I’ve got a bunch of stories here in my hot little paw. This one is on amland says. Nearly half of all us counties are now second amendment sanctuaries. That story was published on. May six and i’ll put a link to it in the description if i remember to do it. But a county by county count. I mean kind of sounds funny. But a county by county basis there are nearly half of the counties in the country are now second amendment counties in addition to that many states have become second amendment station. It seems like every time. I look at the news. There’s another one legis. Here’s just some headlines for you. This is from the saint george news. Legislators tried to make utah a second amendment sanctuary. This is another story. Bill making tennessee. A second amendment sanctuary state passes their state house. This one from. I’m trying to see where this is. wish publication is one is from but those governor abbot again tout second amendment sanctuary state legislation as biden unveils action against guns. And let’s see oklahoma now second amendment sanctuary state arizona. Were we have property. My wife and i is a second amendment sanctuary state. That happened very recently and they’ll just seemed to be moving rapidly across the country. There’s this incredible movement. it’s not just happening serendipitous. 00:05:02 – 00:10:01 I mean there’s a movement to turn states particularly the red state in the second amendment sanctuaries. And you might ask. What does that mean. Well what that means is that state is not going to help the federal government enforce constitutionally invalid attacks on your second amendment rights. Now there’s also the constitutional carry movement and that is sweeping across the country. But before i even mentioned that let me let you know that needles california believe it or not in the crazy wack job leftist state the blue state of california where my wife and i live needles california declared itself a second amendment sanctuary a long time ago and in san clemente california. Just a little north of san diego. The city council did they didn’t declare themselves a second amendment sanctuary instead they called it a second amendment freedoms city. I’m not sure what the differences but that happened just very recently and you can tell. Just how much is rattling the left when you look at stories like on the brady campaign website. That is entitled so called. Love the so-called so-called quote second amendment sanctuaries unquote are troubling attacks on gun safety laws across the country and this thing just goes on and pitches a two year old fifth through the entire article over the idea that states and counties and localities across the country literally half the nation have declared themselves and has declared itself a second amendment sanctuary. Well this is a battle going on between the states and certain municipalities and the federal government’s desire and in some cases like in california the state government’s desire to destroy your second amendment rights. You’re listening to the gun guy. Tv podcast look at the constitutional carry movement rematch screaming across the country. I remember when ronald reagan was president. And i think there was exactly one one may issue state was it. That was at one the rest of them. Many of them didn’t issue at all as i permits. Were concern and many of them like california issued only on a very restrictive shall issue basis. But since then may issue went away and shall issue streaked across. The country started in florida. And that really became the norm and the allies were places like california new york that had the may issue policy and now constitutional carey is ripping across the country. I’m reading an article. Here that appeared in. Hang on a second. Let me look. This one is in legal. Defense for self defense. I guess assoc- us lawshield website and it lists of following states has constitutional carry states as of the time of the printing of this particular article which was march thirty first. Twenty twenty one so it may have changed a little bit since. then here they are alaska arizona. Arkansas idaho iowa which will be effective july first twenty twenty one. Kansas kentucky maine mississippi missouri. Montana new hampshire north dakota south dakota tennessee again. Effective july one. Twenty twenty one. Utah vermont west virginia and wyoming in addition while they’re not considered casual carry in every respect six stage delaware louisiana nevada new mexico north carolina and virginia all allow permit lewis carry of handguns openly for open carry and then texas. It looks like an. I know governor. Abbott has said he will sign it. Both the my understanding is both houses of the state. Legislature have passed a constitutional carry law and now it is going to. The governor’s desk for signature. That has another one. A lot of these states were not constitutional. Carry before but it has just really taken off the ticket in light of joe biden’s desire to further and further restrict your second amendment rights so even the constitutional carry movement shows that we are winning and it is again many many people in youtubers and so on have talked about the fact that there may be a civil war while i must tell you that. It’s not brewing. It’s happening. It’s just not civil war in the way that we think of it and frankly i’m grateful for that i don’t i don’t want to see a shooting war in our country. I mean i don’t know anybody who does asian if they do. I think they might be a little cracked that’s nuts. You don’t know what you’re wishing for that said having a civil war in this fashion. I think is more effective and i think we’re going to win it. I’m encouraged by that. A dozen states. I mean this is not fires related but but it’s part of the whole deal part of the whole cultural deal. A dozen states are actually maybe a more than a dozen right now are working on banning critical race theory. 00:10:01 – 00:15:01 So here’s biden sitting in the white house wanting to push this hateful ideology into all of our schools and state after state after state is now banning it at the state level within the state school system so the feds may wanna push that on your statement if your state one allowed. It isn’t going to get pushed there. And that’s the battle between the stage and the federal government forty seven states currently are working on election integrity bills. Now that’s huge because we know there’s a lot of questions about the presidential election that just occurred and probably rightfully so. So we have the audits and mira copa county arizona. Going on we’ve got audits apparently going on in georgia and those are sparking. More audits. Perhaps in other states. And then you’ve got guys like mike lindell. The my pillow guy started. his own. website is on social media thing. And he’s just he’s holding rallies and spending a lot of money and run around all over the place and putting together a very informative. And i think frankly very accurate videos and documentaries about the things that he’s uncovered. Those are just taking the country by storm. You have borders states. I mean we’re just looking at. We’re just looking at the battle between the states and the feds right now. You’ve got border stage. Declaring states of emergency on the southern border again not gun related but still. It’s an indicator of the kind of battle that’s going on right now. Arizona governor ducey declared a state of emergency awhile ago and sent the arizona national guard to the border now. There is some dispute by some of the democrat. More lefty sheriff. Shen i think one or two of them don’t really want the national guard there but the other sheriffs are certainly happy about it. Then you’ve got all county sheriff. Mark lamb who started entire website and a group called protect america. Now you find it at protect america now dot com and it should collection of sheriff’s not just on the southern border but from around the country who are eager to defend your rights and defend the border and fight for the country and these are your county sheriff’s and the nice thing about county sheriff’s there’s their elected officials. They’re not beholden to the federal government for much of anything and these folks are eager to defend the united states. So you might want to check that out. Check it out at protect america. Now dot com. Now if you’re a sheriff. I urge you to join texas governor. Abbot just declared a state of emergency in texas and has declared that texas authorities will arrest illegal immigrants when they commit crimes for among other things aggravated trespass because they are trespassing upon ranches and private property and their breaking things and stealing things and assaulting people for property damage for child endangerment. Certainly when you take a child and you throw them into the rio grande so that the child’s life is at risk and that forces border patrol and other authorities to go. Save the child so that you can run away and get away that is considered child endangerment when you drop a child off a forty foot fence or border wall down to somebody else. You’ve endangered that child. There’s also drug trafficking weapons violations weapons trafficking all these things that can and should be prosecuted through state and local laws are going to be prosecuted in the state of texas. I hope that the other border states will follow suit. We’ll have to see what happens. But even texas are working toward the effort to perhaps finish building. The border wall that president trump started and since biden has come to office. He’s stopped building. Well the texans are about to start building it back again. This is all this stuff. That’s happening in this in this rather bizarre war between the states and the federal government but like they say in the weird commercials in the middle of the night but wait. There’s more and i’m going to tell you about it in just a second. I mentioned the gun guy. Tv crew a few moments ago and i want to mention it to you again. That is where you can support gun guy. Tv if you’d like to do that and this podcast by joining the gun guy. Tv crew on patriotic. That’s where you’re going to find. Livestreams exclusive videos exclusive post. I try to make a post every day. Monday through friday some days. I miss as i did yesterday. Because i was up in orange county visiting with the california rifle and pistol association. But i try to post something every day post videos and some of things. Some of them are educational videos training videos. Some other behind the scene videos and that kind of stuff. We also have guests coming up for live streams where you can ask the guest the questions you want to ask and a whole lot of other things going to happen on gun. Guide tv crew. I urge you to join me over there and help support gun guy. Tv by becoming part of our crew. You can find it at gun guy. Tv crew dot com. You’re listening to the good night. 00:15:01 – 00:20:11 Tv podcast please. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. All have touched on at this point is the war between the states and the federal government as the states back against this leftist socialist marxist assault upon our country not just second amendment but every amendment in the bill of rights our entire constitution our country is founded and yet these states are picking up this fight but there are other places where this is being fought. Frankly it’s being fought between gun owners and their government. I’m going to submit to you right now. That gun control is dead. Now they try to destroy cody wilson. He made some stupid mistakes. That’s for sure but they tried to destroy him. But that did not destroy defense distributed they are still producing a building producing selling the ghost garner three now on the third version of their cnc machine. That makes your gun for you. Have you don’t wanna do that. You don’t have the money to do that there still. The eighty percent lowers for both rifles and handguns. And yes biden has asked atf to do something about that to change those rules. But you’d have to be a civics failure in school to think that. Atf can make law. They can’t fifth biden launch. Atf to go back and change the definition of a firearm. What causes a firearm. To be a firearm. What makes a receiver receiver. He has to go back to congress and do it now will try to do it. Because they’re told by the commander in chief to do it but it’s gonna fail in court and we all know that in the meantime because he’s asked them to do that. These things are flying off the shelves so fast that the manufacturers can’t make them quick enough if you have already tried go see if you can find. Eighty percent lowers for a glock or a nineteen eleven or an. Ar see if you can find even stripped uppers or hard to get see if you can find a jig find that most of these things in most places are sold out. You’ll find some that are available. And that’s because those companies are making them at warp speed if you think about it. Here’s the thing to think about. How many millions of those has joe biden effectively soul been the best salesman for eighty perset lowers and for cnc machines like the ghost hunter three that has ever walked the earth which means even if changes the rules. There are people who are going to make their own guns. And they’re not telling anybody and there are going to be millions and millions and millions of law abiding citizens making their own eras making their own handguns and so on and the federal government. The state government is not going to know where those are gun. control is effectively dead. Look at this. I found an article was published in it. Doesn’t i printed it out now. I don’t know but this article was entitled more than twenty three million firearms sold in twenty twenty over twenty one million gun. Background checks were conducted and almost ten million new gun owners. Such twenty three million firearms almost ten million new gun owners and that was in two thousand twenty. That doesn’t count from january. To june of twenty twenty one. How many guns have been sold in that time if it was twenty. Three million during covid. You know they’ve added another ten or twelve million since then. All those guns are out there. There’s ten million or so more new gun owners and if you watch the news you find that nationally biden’s push to control guns and create more gun control is becoming ever less popular in fac to put it the other way. It’s becoming ever un popular even in blue states like california. The politicians are beginning to feel the heat just very recently the anti gutters in the california legislature tried to pass a tax on gun sales and failed. Now they’re going to bring it back and try again but one of the reasons had failed even though they have a supermajority is because some of those. Legislators are in districts where they’re concerned that if they pass a tax they might not get reelected. You know. Sam parodies is right when he talks about these folks. Number one concern is being reelected staying off. They don’t care about anything else. They care about staying in office. That’s their thing that’s all they care about so when it looks like they might not be elected they choke and they don’t vote in lockstep with the rest of the anti-gun crazies even in the legislature. California look at the sheriff of los angeles who recently announced that because the murder rate and violent crime rate in los angeles had gone up so drastically five per cent that he was going to issue more concealed. 00:20:11 – 00:25:09 Carry permits to los angelinos. Now he’s also said that he’s going to have them prove that they need it through this good ’cause process rather than doing shall issue and i will tell you that she’s not good enough and you’ll agree. That’s not good enough but but what i would point out to you is that that is an enormous pendulum swing in the right direction. The chance of getting permitted all in los angeles has been nil for a very very long time. As long as i can remember. I had an employee lived up in that area lived in torrance and i tried to get him a permit at one point for business purposes and while he could get a permit easily in orange county san diego county riverside county or any of those counties for business purposes. He had no chance in la because they wouldn’t even issue it. If you could provide good ’cause now at least the needle has moved a little bit to where if you have a business case. You’re probably going to get a permit. And why the case is this because sheriff villanueva’s such a great guy. No it’s because he wants to stay sheriff and he’s worried about not being elected if he doesn’t do this because people in los angeles are tired of dealing with the violent crime and the fact. That police can’t do anything about it. So the pressure is on even in blue states like california. Believe me they’re feeling the heat. There’s another magical place. This battle is being fought. And i’m going to share that in just a moment if you’d like to support gun guy tv and do it without causing yourself. Red sent the easiest way to do. It is to shop amazon using our amazon link. Actually we have so many affiliate links. Now you can buy everything. You can buy things from amazon whether it’s toilet paper toothpaste or anything else. You by amazon. For that matter.

It helps us. Keep the lights on so please do shop. They’re shooting straight always right on target. This is the gun guy podcast. I wasn’t kidding. When i said there are many other places where this battle is being fought. Most notably one of them is within the federal court system. President trump did a masterful job of getting more and more conservative. Constitutional construction est. I guess you would call them judges on the federal court system everywhere from the lowest of federal courts to the supreme court and everything in between no sooner had i finished recording the podcast. Then judge bananas. And san diego california issued his decision in the assault weapons ban on californian and struck it down constitutionally so i do want to include in our victories that were having yet another victorious case for the second amendment so i wanted to make sure i mentioned it here. Sampras will be on with me on sunday. And i’m already talking about Talking with chuck michelle to get him on the show to go through the case with me as well so we’ll have some future videos and just an extra day or two on the brand new case that down the california assault weapons ban. I don’t go change your rifle right away. Because that’s going to go obviously to the ninth circuit more than likely in the night circuit may make a change. We don’t know and so if you change your rifle now you’re going to have to change it back later. Additionally it appears that judge benitez put a thirty day. Stay on the decision. So the assault weapons ban is still in effect right. Now as far as i know don’t race out. Change your rifle. for example. The lower courts are deciding in favor of gun owners quite a bit. We have. I guess the gentleman we call saint bananas. Judge benitez here in san diego. County has helped us a number of times and our other judges even in this crazy state of california. And you’re gonna see more and more of those types of victories. Even the ninth circuit court of appeals out here in the west is not nearly the nutty nine at ever was before now it has swung completely into our favor but right now about a fifty fifty court. 00:25:09 – 00:28:20 So we’re winning a lot. You’ll see more and more three judge. Panel’s vote on the side of the constitution and decide on the part of gun owners. Now they do go to the panel and sometimes that gets thrown out but when that happens worse ago well hopefully to the supreme court and while we have been frustrated that the supreme court has turned away a lot of cases most recently they decided to take a case out of new york that will shuttle what it means to bear. Arms in the second amendment. Now inhaler they settled what it meant to keep that. The right to keep arms is an individual right that is part of each and every american’s rights it’s not a corporate rights a militias an individual right. But they really. They touched on bear a little bit but they really didn’t decide it this time they will. I think the other thing. Hopefully they will decide is how these cases are to be approached in the lower courts. My hope is they’ll get rid of these balancing crazy. Balancing tests and scrutiny levels and instruct the courts to look at the text history and tradition of the law in if that happens. You’re going to see a british sizable flurry of lawsuits. To overturn the vast majority of the crazy gun control. We experience particularly in states like california. You’ll also notice that in many places. Taxpayers are voting with their feet. In other words. They’re packing up. They’re taking their money and out the door they’re going. they’re just going someplace else. There’s an article that appeared the time so that was interesting. The headline reach taxpayers fleeing california. Take eight point eight billion dollars in gross income to other states. That’s right that was billion with a b. that has dinged the state tax revenue significantly in california. Now is seeing more people leaving. The state then are coming in so our population california has been shrinking for a number of years now and as people leave their taking their money with them when they go and surprisingly. I have read this in a number of stories. Surprisingly the fear that people will leave california and take their liberal crazy leftist politics with them when they go and go to a red state vote. Blue is not coming to pass. These folks are leaving these crazy states moving to red states were. They’re free and voting for freedom pie. I hope that continues. I really really do well. There’s a lot more fighting going on. There’s fighting in congress or is fighting in the media. There’s fighting his social media. But unfortunately i’m out of time for the public portion of it so the rash you’ll be able to hear if you’re a member of the gun guy tv crew only on patriot if you haven’t already signed up. Follow the lake in the description or go to gun guy. Tv crew dot com to do so today in the meantime.

It’s time for the GunGuyTV podcast. I’m Joel Persinger. I’m the gun guy. Thank you very much for all of your support of GunGuyTV and everything that you do. I am super grateful for all of your help. This is a Going to be a little different podcast today. Because i’m going to change the format of the podcast a little bit having been a radio guy and been in broadcasting for a long time i tend to do any kind of audio show like i would do a radio show where i break it into segments and i put availabilities for commercials in there that kind of stuff and that’s not really podcasting. I’m learning and so. I’m i tended to do that with the podcast when i first started. And i’m going to stop that because it’s a lot of extra work for me and it’s probably not as much fun for you so rather than formatting this thing like a radio show i’m just gonna format it like a conversation. I will put a little bumpers in there periodically. Just to remind you you’re listening. What the heck you’re listening to an it’ll tell you you’re listening to the gun guy. Tv firearms podcast. Or whatever but other than that. I i’m not gonna do. I really don’t want this to become a commercial enterprise. Either i think so to the degree that you’d like to support gun guy. Tv in the podcast. I certainly would appreciate that. And there are myriad different ways you can do it. You can do it by using our amazon link if you want to. I’ve explained that a million times. You can do it by Just i don’t know you can give us a donation you can go to the gun guy. Tv website again guy dot tv and you can hit donate and you can donate a little money. Whatever you wish to do. But i’d prefer that it’s really an exercise in supporting the second amendment. And not so much a commercial enterprise if somebody wants to sponsor the podcasts at some point or other then we’ll talk about that at the very beginning i’ll mention them and then we’re going to go on through the podcast. We’re not gonna talk about it anymore. Right now practical defense systems is our sponsor and that’s the company i own so if you’re in california and you’re interested security guard training. It is the best security guard training at the lowest prices. And you can do it all online on demand on any mobile device. So you go. That’s the advertising for practical defense systems for today. Pete elmore my friend and cohort and Co weirdo shooter. In like oh. I’m sorry. the last thing. I should’ve mentioned was i- in this one. This is audio only if it’s public and That’s going to be the case. Even on patriae on the first half hour is free. it’s available on your favorite podcast player. The next half hour is available oland patriots so whenever we get to thirty minutes. Whatever we’re talking about ends and we end up one arrest of it over unpatriotic. I’m not going to be too structured about it But if you want to hear the whole thing and go to patriot The other thing is that s. A public podcast. I i’m gonna leave it audio only because just easier to get on your public on your podcast player. We’ll put a video version with thumbnail up on public places like youtube bitchy. And so on. But what i’m planning on doing is when we record this recording it with video and then putting the video version the full version full one hour version with video on the unpatriotic so it won’t just be audio only on patriot. I may put to up there one audio only one video and that way you can consume it whichever way you want all right having said that pete and i were shooting the breeze about a lot of things. I know one of the things we want to talk about was long. Great super duper Long distance shooting. Because i’m not into that. And i don’t know squat about it and you do well. I’ve i’ve played around with for longtime you recall. We went out to Would to arrange between us and shot out to about nine hundred yards. Shy nine hundred. You shot things at nine hundred yards. I shot at things that you need a few times. I did not come on. That’s the farthest i’ve ever shot in my life. Maybe prior to that. I think i told you that day. The farthest i never shot anything was Maybe two hundred yards or something right around there to fifty. I don’t remember. Oh i take it back. I did shoot at a gong. One time at five hundred sixty yards. And i did collaborate. You know a couple of times out of twenty shots or something but it was you know luck of the draw right but no i you got me you got me pretty much hidden somewhat consistently out there that day at nine hundred yards and i was amazed. I it’s it’s a lot of fun it’s You know you take the shot. At those distances it takes a it takes takes the round more than a second to get there and So you actually see it hit well before you hear it and you can see the bullet with the trail going through the portrayal. You could see a vapor trail that’s trying to think if you could see the vapor which is very cool. Yeah especially when it. Especially that distance is arguing up quite a ways of the dropping back ed On the target. 00:05:02 – 00:10:42 And it’s like a good chip shot for a field goal kicker. You watch go up. You’re gonna make it back down to time well and reloading is a big deal right now because of the ammunition stuff. A lot of folks are hinting and some are not hinting summer. Just coming out. And saying it’s a conspiracy i i don’t think it’s a conspiracy mean remington filed for bankruptcy and remington was producing a tremendous amount of ammunition. And of course ammo factory. I believe was shut down for a period during that time which took a lot of ammunition on public Out of the public Availability and then people panic buying which we saw that with toilet paper for crying out loud toilet paper and ammunition. They don’t go together but they can both be panicked purchase. And so i think that’s largely it but when you’re reloading how does it differ. Pardon me as a save you think about it. We sold some more north of ten million new firearms last year to first time buyers and if every single new buyer went home with just two boxes of ammo that’s twenty million boxes of ammo big soul. Well that you can’t you can’t buy so many people freaking out now getting into reloading because they feel like it’s a necessity not because it’s a hobby for me. It’s a hobby. And i enjoy doing it for you. Same thing but for a lot of folks now. it’s oh my gosh. I’m preparing for the end of the world. Well you’re primers. Which is why you can’t find primers anywhere and air. Go you’re You know i was talking to sampras about this people by reloading components for guns. Don’t even have the gun to fire the round. So he said he talked to store owners where people will come in and say well. I need I need to buy this and this and this for this caliber for nine millimeter. Why i don’t have any of that. Well how about how about two to three. I don’t have any of that. What do you got well. I’ve got six point. Five creed more will. I don’t have a gun for that. Well that’s all. I got okay. I’ll take it like what. What are they going to do with it. They’re going to load the nation can’t but they’re they’re buying up the stuff that they don’t even aren’t plan on using or have no way to to consume it and i think that’s a contributing factor to the lack of stuff. Well think people think they’re going to be able to trade or barter you know like there’s gonna be some towns square where people stand around and go. Hey i got six flat grade. More six. got a toolbox at six hundred three more who got three three zero three minutes. Come on back that the back. You know you’re pretty good at that. I’ve attended a few options. Actually bought a couple of cars at auction once. And you’re actually pretty good. It’s where you’re you ever an auction ear by any chance i have. I have done some charity auctions so it had had a ton of fun with it but But yeah it’s it’s by what you can shoot. Leave leave the leave the rest for other people you know. Sure i mean i you know. But that the point. I brought up with the whole I was actually going somewhere actually had a destination. I didn’t get there. But i had a destination. My what i was going to mention was the fact that with reloading. Just listening to you. Because i when you and i talked about reloading stuff. You’re really the precision reloading guy. Where i’m cranking out a of nine millimeter to go the range or a bunch of forty or something like that or i’m i’m cranking out a box a thirty aught six. Because i’m might go knock down a deer with it or something that two hundred and fifty yards. But you’re you’re loading something that you’re planning on shooting fifteen hundred yards thousand yards in your re loading precision. Requirements are much much different than mine as a result. and i. you’ve mentioned that before. And i don’t and frankly to truthfully i don’t understand it. Can you elaborate on their their whole their whole lot of different factors that come into play when it comes into a reloading for ular ultra-long-range extreme long range shooting just to begin with when you’re talking we’re talking those distances. Eight hundred nine hundred yards and out You’re talking about significant drop on the round and velocity is as everybody knows makes a huge difference in In in how much drop you’re going to have you’ll see a you’ll see twenty five fifty feet per second difference between a hot quote unquote hot factor round and another round in the exact. Same box makes when you’re shooting those distances. You’re trying to hit the twelve inch target. That’s the difference between hitting it and not hitting it is is that you know being going all the way over and going all the way under so you’ll see most of the guys that shoot long range are looking for a standard deviation of ten feet per second or less the guys that are really really tight are doubted five feet per second or less go through a box of twenty loads and they’re gonna go majority of ninety five percent are going to be between twenty eight fifty and twenty eight fifty five feet per second whether using magnus speed or elaborate or whatever and they’re all going to be consistent. 00:10:44 – 00:15:18 You’re listening to the gun guy tv podcast and then and then you have guys that Depending on on how much. Ocd you’ve got who will take an entire box of bullets and weigh them individually and then group them by their weight Yet says it’s one hundred seventy five round or a three hundred grain round but what you’ll find is there’s some two ninety nine point two and there some three hundred point sixes and some of these are some of those in so some guys will actually break goes out into into groups and group of that way in load them that way and then you have In order to get that in order to get that standard deviation veloce you’ve got to have a charge load that’s very very consistent so everybody knows about little trickle chargers. Well i mean there’s a guy that’s got a whole setup in own. My goodness is inexpensive. But it’s amazing to watch. It’s got a electron scale. It’s hooked up to a computer Ish of sorts. That is hooked up to a trickle charger. That’s all everything’s all motorized than it drops it drops loaded and then it trickled charges in. It’s supposed to be within attempt of grain all my less. There’s an and they just keep going up there. That whole setup his well north of five hundred dollars. And that’s not in my price range for just a powder scale so i’ll go with the old beam style in my And my aging is trying to make everything everything way about the same like that. Also factors in there Changing the pressure based on. How your bullets seated. You know if you’re bullets seated far back into the cartridge the volume inside the cartridges less and therefore as the powder starts to burn you will have a lower amount of volume for the power to burn and therefore you’ll have a higher pressure spike whereas if it seated way way way The end you have more space and so the pressure spike need not be sharp in front. That may not be as high And then you’ve got. How far out should the bullet be. Then you wear the land start in. Where does your chamber and in the in the barrel begin. Meaning where’s the sleuth part. Stop and where did the lands begin. Because is that. Because you don’t wanna you want to reduce the jump that the has to make from the cartridge to the the land and it’s in the rifling that’s correct so there is the do Do chamber remaining that You know they’ll adjust where the land start based on where you tell them that you’re going to load ammo at what overall length etc etc etc etc or you may have a gun that’s already set up and so there are i think it’s horrid. That makes it. They make a karcher that fits in you. Gotta take the bullets out the cartridge in. And then you twist the dial. It runs the bullet up or the fake bullet up to where it touches the lands. And then you can get the actual measurement of how long it is some guys bring it back five thousand some guys bringing it back nine thousands some guys able anything under ten’s okay etc etc you. What a little gap there. But you don’t want a huge gap there so all of that. Every last bit of that affects Affects the the the round goes down because everything is so in- insanely magnified if you’re gonna just fifteen hundred yards a if you’re muzzle or if you’re barrel is off to hundreds of a degree that’s Something like eighteen inches at fifteen hundred yards while at to hundreds of great degree just means that your muzzle has moved about thirteen thousands. 00:15:21 – 00:20:02 So the the you when. I think of precision shooting. I’ve always thought of the quality build of the rifle itself and all the various parts and pieces and adjustments to go into that. But i never really thought about the ammunition as much but it sounds to me like everything needs to be accounted for right down even to the sickness of the brass or the because as you mentioned pressure changes based upon the volume inside the brass of the brass thickness changes dramatically. Does that affect your accuracy as well sure because that’s a that’s a change in the In the available call it the the number of cubic millimetres inside the inside the the case or a given of powder to burn and guys will guys will have and i do to an extent to weigh their brass because you know heavier brass has got thicker walls and therefore you don’t you don’t Have as much space on the inside given that the outside is exactly the same size. Does anybody go to the trouble to actually take a micrometer or a or a calendar something and measure the thickness of the brash on on these things. I don’t know that he was doing that. I think the hardest part would be headed how to do that. Because you’ve got a small opening several things but if if you if you size if you do a fully size or even used just an excise and rely on the fire form on your your Brass that’s a whole other. Discussion be annexed sizing fulling sized level of okay. Well there’s a discussion. Why what’s the now. I do know the difference with that but if my understanding is that fire forming the brass that brass’s now all you’re doing his neck sizing up because you because you intend to fire that round from the same rifle and the brass’s already fire for him to that chamber right and so there’s a lot to be said for next sizing so that you’re not. You’re not there’s no slop or play or there’s less lop and play between the side of the brass and the chamber. That is being fired in. We were talking. I think we were talking the other day about bullets seating and how the die is really work on self aligning bullet into into the breast. We were talking about the difference between my lead. Loadmaster and What you need in order to what do what you have to do which in which is a precision level probably one hundred precision levels above above. What my my progressive presses capable of doing so there are there are there are tools with micrometres on them. That will measure. You’ll figure turn a bullet around or an entire round cartridge and all around and it’ll measure helmets deflection. The tip has back and forth down into the half thousand range. Ed you can see how straight the round is seated because that’s going to affect how it goes into the lands That’s gonna affect how it goes down the barrel that’s going to affect us. Part of the reason why you want a little bit of jump is to try and correct any anything that might be off there. It’s going to affect the the aerodynamics. What you get out of the barrel so you talk about just to clarify. What are you talking about ballistics three three areas of ballistics that. You’ll talk about others internal ballistics external ballistics and terminal ballistics short backwards terminal. Ballistics is what happens when the round hits whatever. It’s supposed to be hitting not so much a big deal in target shooting. But if you are taking a a if you’re taking game at some distance two hundred yards four hundred yards terminal. Ballistics is how well is mushroom. How well does it hold together. How well does it penetrate. That’s terminal ballistic shooting strain and always right on target. This is a gun guy to podcast further. I mean some people will particularly if you’re a new shooter and you’re and you’re not a hundred and your or you’re just not a hundred and you listen to that and you think well ashes really horrible will actually no. 00:20:02 – 00:25:13 It’s not terminal ballistics very important because if you are hunting moose like my like my My friend brought up in alaska or something or you’re hunting some big game animal. You wanna stop. You wanna kill that animal humanely in what the animal to go down right. There were very close to right there. You don’t wanna wound the animal and have the animal gopher you know a time in agonizing pain and you know for two three four hundred yards or a quarter of a mile or something along those lines so that that terminal. Ballistics is super important. When you’re looking at From the standpoint of hunting and it’s very important for hunters not from the standpoint of being cruel but precisely the opposite. The idea is to take the grain. Take the game in a humane fashion and show terminal. Ballistics are very important to do that. That’s correct exactly right and External ballistics is what happens when the bullet is out of the barrel on its way to the target and that has to do with the air density temperature pressure altitude. You name it. All of those factors come into play in an internal ballistics or the start of the shot. Is everything that happens inside the gun. So the parameter goes off in the pressure starts to spike Inside the inside the case from the primer going off does the round unseat itself and move forward to the or or not With the powder goes off. How much room is there. What’s the pressure spike. What is the pressure gradient. Look like from the beginning of the From the beginning of the burn to the round exiting the the muzzle. Then you have All of the harmonic to go in place One of the things it fascinates this fascinates me about this field. Is the physics. Just the plain physics involved you know for. Every action is equal and opposite reaction so as the bullet goes down the barrel. The barrel is forcing the twists onto the bullet. The bullet is trying to untwisted the barrel at the same time. Which is why you typically see target barrels big thicker and heavier than hunting barrel because they’ll a heat up because you’re shooting over and over and over and you need some way to absorb that energy but you don’t want them to whip or twist to any more than any more than you can prevent it. Would you look at. You’re talking about the precision of how the rifles made The stiffness with which it’s made is there any flex anywhere The whole rifle is like a tuning fork. And there’s going to be certain frequencies that will will resonate within the gun and you’ll get barrel movement of you know x. thousands of an inch or x. fractures of the thousands of an inch barrel is the is the round goes down. The goes down the barrel with you. You got forty fifty thousand psi behind that round Yeah the barrels pretty sick. It’s some pretty tough metal but at the same time in fifty thousand psi is going to have an effect on that on that steal and it’s going to cause some limited amount of flex and all of that combined than how rigid is the chassis and housing anchored. You it it. It a thousand yards. If the perfectly come win you’re going to see a difference in your point of impact if you shoot off a sandbag and then you turn around and shoot off tripod because that changes the harmonic of the firearm. You’re going to get you’re going to get some sliding movement off the sandbag. You’re gonna get some residents off the off the tripod that will make a difference in where the where the round impacts when i think of louis ultra-long range shooting personally. When i think of it my indoctrination into that i guess or just in my indoctrination to the awareness of it was watching competitions watching them do it in competition whereas i th. I suspect that the average person’s indoctrination into the knowledge of that is watching movies. Or whatever when you’ve got the the special ops sniper shooting at some phenomenal distance ryan you know really when you talk about ultra long range shooting as a result the first thing that pops into my head is the competitions that i’ve watched i don’t and i was never in the military so i don’t i don’t have a military. 00:25:13 – 00:30:14 I don’t have the military experience to to lean back on having watched those competitions. You mentioned it calm wind but or wendy temperature. All of those things come into play. Don’t the and and humidity and elevation and all that stuff sort of comes into play too. Doesn’t it yeah every bit of it. Would you look at all the factors that go into the going to making his shot. I mean you start with. Just start with the ammo temperature. The powder will burn at a different rate at forty degrees. That will aid. Or are you talking about the temperature of the actual cartridge. The actual ammo. Yeah not the temperature that reaches when it burns but the starting temperature when you take it out of the box and you put it in the magazine of the rifle the temperature of that particular around. I have for extreme for extremes day with it. Excuse me. But i had my bag for extremes. The infrared thermometer at all. Take a look. And i’ll shoot the. I’ll take a temperature on on the case to see where it’s at when it’s really find doing something in the wintertime out in colorado it’s ultra-long-range i’ll take liquor them eligible. I’ve i’ve been to competitions where it’s really cold and guys will take their ammo and stick it under their shirt into their armpit to warm it up to a normal temperature so that they have the charts the data and can get the consistency that they expect from the round going off. Because there’s there will be a you. Put a forty degree around the barrel and you put a eighty degree round of the barrel in those to the velocities. The end of the barrel be drastically different between the two. It’s really about the powder temperature and so you will when it’s really really cold because i get so few chances to go out when it’s really cold. I like to go to someplace like the range we went to before. Let the get really cold. Because i don’t get a lot of data on them. If i can find out that for every ten degrees fahrenheit difference in miami so i’m gonna see or say ten feet per second difference in my velocity that i could extrapolate that at thirty degrees and other ten degrees colder twenty degrees colder than the fifty down at the range. I’d probably get him. See you know. Twenty twenty eight twenty feet per second out of the barrel. And i can make those adjustments and i can take a look at a at additional drop. Because i’m not gonna have the velocity that i would have adversely summertime and it’s ninety five or one hundred degrees we’re getting velocities. The will never see in the wintertime and so So i’m not going to get the drop that That i would expect At a thousand. Twelve hundred yards. Us really doesn’t i mean for the new shooter or the new hunter. There’s a lot of shooters out there. I should probably clarify and pleased. Pete like i started out the podcasting. But i don’t know anything about this. Okay so if i get this wrong then please correct me. But this really doesn’t come into play when you’re firing your handgun at the range or you’re taking your handgun out too and it doesn’t come into play when you’re hunting with your rifle and your shot’s going to be a hundred and fifty yards or seventy five yards or even two hundred yards really. I mean you’re talking about distances at far exceed that of i am i at obsolete. And that’s one of the reasons that’s one of the beauties of citing in your rifle it at a hundred yards. You know even though even though i’m planning on shooting plus or minus nine hundred thousand yards. I’m still cited in at one hundred yards in and the reason for that is a At one hundred yards wind is really not going to have a huge effect. Especially when i’m coming out of the barrel at close to three thousand feet per second with a three hundred grain sierra match king again you know it’s it’s it’s angles and a short is smaller small changing angles. When you are at a hundred yards. Does it make much difference. The precision is not as as important at the shorter distances. Yeah when i. When i take what i take my favorite hunting rifle out i will adjust the scope. I’ll step it up to To words its On center two hundred yards. And i know that that will i if i’m if i if take the shot correctly i’m going to be a plus or minus inch inch and a half from the muzzle all the way out to three hundred fifty almost four hundred yards. 00:30:14 – 00:31:47 So i don’t i don’t have to make any corrections. It was getting out to four hundred holden. Intra too high. But that’s it. That’s that’s the direction that i’m gonna have to make And so you know. That’s a one senate. Forget it you don’t have to. If you have a quick shot you gotta take Because somebody ’cause ’cause the he just happened to stop there and look around attorneys heading your direction then you take it and you know that that Your your accuracy. Here what is it the. What are the utah. You’re at you’re at one minute of animal right there. Yeah here that that That rounds gonna go right through the engine room white. Were right where you want it to drop. Drop them humanely and quickly while pete. Now we’re gonna talk more about this subject because it’s a very deep and And encouraging and i think very interesting subject to talk about with long range shooting but unfortunately we’ve run out of time for the public version of the podcast with the rest of. It’s going to be on patriot so if you’re on patriot. I want you to stick with me. If you’re not on patriot. I urge you to support us on patriots. That’s where you’re going to get all the exclusive content like the remainder of this podcast for one thing that you can’t get anywhere else if you’re on the public podcast player. And you’re not part of patriotic. Wanna thank you very much all of your support and wherever you go. Whatever you do stay safe. You’ve been listening to the GunGuy TV podcast.

Usda prime gun stuff on the gun guy tv test. Hi this is joel singer. I’m the gun guy. Thank you very much for all of your support of gun guy tv. I’m very grateful for everything you do. So please don’t stop this. Podcast is yet another installment of the gun guy. Tv firearms podcasts. And as usual it is one hour long or roughly hour long. I don’t seem to ever hit the mark. Exactly the first half an hour will be available on your favorite podcast player. It’s free and we’ll also put up some video versions on various youtube and other video platforms and then the second half hour is available on patriot. Only so if you’d like to hear the second half hour. I do urge you to join gun guide. Tv on patriae. Now another way that you can support gun guy. Tv feud you’d like without caution yourself. One read is his shop amazon using our amazon link. Yes i know. Amazon is an unfriendly company. Where the second amendment is concerned. And i get it but still i recognize it. A lot of people shop amazon anyway. I find myself doing it from time to time to so. If you’re going to shop amazon anyway you might as well pick their pocket and help out gun guy. Tv a little bit so that we can keep this thing going. The easiest way to do that is to go to our website at gun guide dot tv and look for the amazon banner on the top. It’s just a little rectangular banner you can click on it. It will take you to amazon using our amazon link. And once you get there. You’re looking at the amazon page. Go ahead and bookmark that page and every time you shop amazon. If you go back to that bookmark i than anything you buy on amazon will be as if you had purchased it through our website. And we’ll give credit for it doesn’t cost you a dime but it does help outgun guy tv because we get a little marketing fee so please shop amazon using our amazon link. Now onto the podcast okay. So i sat around yesterday. I while yesterday it was kind of a cool day. We had a great time with our bible group. Which i’ll talk about here in a minute. And then we finally got the christmas tree up and got the lights on it. We haven’t decorated it yet. We’re gonna do that today because we weren’t all together as a family last night to put up the various and sundry decorations but we did get some decorations up outside. Some lights up outside will finish those today and now finally it feels like christmas. I was telling my wife today. We’re going for a walk. I don’t feel like it’s christmas. So many of the houses are not decorated. Some are but an awful lot or not and people just didn’t seem to be in the christmas spirit but putting the tree up getting the lights up and putting some things out really made christmas. Come alive for me and i think for the rest of my family yesterday so i started thinking last night about the positive things that have happened in the year. Twenty twenty. oh sure. I could spend the entire hour talking about negative stuff but frankly you get enough that from the news and from youtube and other things anyway. So let’s talk about the things that went well. I can acknowledge the fact that we had some difficulties this year. Certainly the loss of my stepdad to a heart attack was a difficulty. Certainly some health challenges at some members of my family have faced have been difficulties and then we just found out that my wife’s favorite aunt passed away yesterday. She wasn’t her nineties and no she didn’t pass away from. Kovic is passed away from old age and so those things are challenging but at the same time some very good things have happened this year too and i thought this is the last audio podcast. I’m going to do for twenty twenty. I would try to accentuate the positive as the old song from bing crosby says. Let’s talk about that just a little bit. Shall we obviously with covid. It’s been tough to maintain friendships and relationships. Because you can’t go see each other or for the longest time you couldn’t now tests point of care anymore and a lot of people feel the same way and so we go see our friends and get it over with and they do the same but there for a long time. We couldn’t do that so while some relationships have grown a little bit more distant amazingly some others have become much closer. I’m very grateful for those one of which have to highlight. Is our bible study group. We call it a bible talk and we get together once a week now. It moves around because jim one of our members his job our tend to change about once every four months or three months or something. And so we move it around to accommodate jim and laura however that group has just stayed together and been vibrant and exciting and getting deep into the bible every week. It really has been a light throughout this very difficult time. New people that i’ve invited or other people have invited have come into the group and the group has actually grown so we just do it over zoom once we can start in person. 00:05:02 – 00:10:00 We’ll start start doing that but some of us will well. We just won’t be able to because we have members of our bible group are in other countries and other parts of the country and so on so that has been a real highlight of two thousand twenty. And i don’t think it would have come together quite the way it did if it weren’t for the pandemic bill there’s an example of god’s taking all things and somehow making them good for the people who love him and he did that with our bible group. Every sunday is joy getting together with those people and from sunday to sunday. I look to the next sunday. And i’m very excited to be part of it again. Every one of us in the person or household has grown closer to each other. We were a close knit family anyway but certainly kovic has helped us grow closer not farther apart. I credit that to god. But i also credited to having a close family in the first place. My wife is of mexican and spanish descent. I’m half italian. My son is half filipino. These are all cultures that come together and have tight knit families and so our is very close. And i’m extremely grateful for that when difficulties come. It seems that rather than pull us apart. It drives us closer together and we’ve come closer together as a family as a result so that has been a great thing this year as well and then of course we’ve had to improvise with Some of our friends to grow closer to them. I think pete. Elmore who you’ve seen on gun guy tv and i have become closer friends much closer friends this last year than we were before and i’m grateful for peach friendship. I know i’ve become closer much closer. Friends with rick travis. Rpa and much. Closer friends with sam peres at gun owners california. At first we started out just people who were helping each other in a second amendment. ’cause but we’ve become good friends and i’m grateful for their friendship. I mean all three of those guys just mentioned are very faithful and very great men. I’m grateful for them. You know the it was yesterday. I think i my wife. And i found a picture. I’d like to claim that. I found it but i didn’t. She did but she found a picture from a long long time ago. I look at it. And i see myself in it and i think oh my gosh. I was young once and i was thin once not anymore. But it’s a picture of a couple of guys. I worked with alan scott. Who’s one. Alan and i are incredibly close friends. I met alan back in his channel. Ten news days. We worked together for a long time. I can’t express how grateful i am for allen’s friendship he is easily one of the most straightforward no nonsense honest and loyal people. I’ve ever had the privilege to know. And then there’s alberto i don’t know of. Alberta would want me to say his last name so i’m not gonna do it without asking him first but he actually does live that far from me. Emmys most talented photographer. I’ve ever known. And certainly one of the most energetic people i’ve ever known and one thing i love about him he’s incredibly talented. He’s a go getter and yet he’s got zero ego archie people. The generally aren’t like that. And i used to run into alberto a lot while hiking a local mountain here that he likes to hike. And so do i. But cova kind of put an end to hiking there. And i’m hoping to start again in january and perhaps i’ll run into alberto again however now think i might gimme call. Today i posted the picture by the way. If you’d like to see it on patriots on the skies are really terrific people but what that does illustrate because alan and i’ve had to connect using technology and we’ve had our bible talk connecting using technology and we basically had to change the way in which we get together as friends that has been an interesting exercise because we’ve learned a lot about not only how to maintain friendships in australia circumstances and situations but also how to maintain friendships over great distances. Were very close friends. With some people in england and we’ve drawn closer. I think as a result of covid than we were before because we’ve made the extra effort to go the extra mile and use technology to be able to stay connected with them a very dear friend of mine and his wife live in alaska and we don’t see them that often but martin. I have spoken very regularly. And we’re we stay close because we’re used technology to do it so cove it i think in some ways has caused us to follow. Leave we do as a marines do improvise adapt and overcome. And we’ve done that all year and as a result when i look back on the year i realize there’s so many difficult things that we’ve faced and i know you have to. But at the same time we’ve come through them by simply hanging onto god hanging onto one another and improvising adapting and coming and that in itself has been a very positive experience. and then we’ve been privileged to witness the kindness and generosity of other people as well an example of that which really struck me was yesterday a gentleman named scott. I won’t mention his last name. Because i don’t know if he would want me to or his wife’s name. You might not want me to. 00:10:00 – 00:15:04 But i used to work with him caso n years and years and years ago. They stumbled on me on youtube and came by the house. It’s been some time ago was very nice to see them unexpectedly. They dropped off a letter about what’s been going on with them this year and a christmas card which they signed and a bunch of cookies. Which if you’re listening scott if your wife baked those are you make those. I gotta tell you those things did not last very long they were gone in a flash in fact my wife said what are we making. I guess cookies are dinner tonight as it turned out it wasn’t our son. Nick made a fabulous dinner and we sat and had dinner but we ate the cookies and wipe them out. There are still some of the The pumpkin bread and other things that they dropped with them but the incredible effort they went to to come by and drop that off just to encourage us was in was just amazing. I was very grateful for that kind of and we’ve seen examples of that kind of kindness from one person to another in this difficult time all year long. Yeah like i said we can focus on the election and we can focus on the news and we can see all the negative things and and scary things that are happening in our lives and yes. I’ve talked about those on this show. I just produced a video the other day talking about those but at the same time if we forget to look at the bright side then we think that the world is coming to an end. I’ve talked about this many times. We’ve got to take a few minutes as they say the smell the roses to look at the the gentleness kindness and grace around us to experience the grace of god if we have it. I hope that we do and at the same time. I think to see the good in people around us. If we don’t do that. Then what have. We got quite frankly. We don’t have much. So i encourage you to do that. And i’m gonna talk more about that in just a minute. It is a strange fact. Well maybe it’s not so strange. It’s an obvious fact. I think that so many guns have been sold in twenty nine hundred that it sort of boggles the mind. I think we’ve sold almost twenty million of first six months of this year and then it’s gone on since then and now people are still buying guns as fast as they can produce them and buying ammunition as fast as it can be made. I see that is very positive. Because more and more people in the united states have taken their own safety and their own security seriously and they’ve taken responsibility for themselves rather than laying that off on law enforcement and the government to take care of them to protect them. They’ve decided to take that as their own responsibility. I can’t say that that’s anything other than positive. However it does put you in a unique position once you do that and that is that if you have to god forbid you have to actually defend yourself you could find yourself some legal trouble so i do urge you to prepare for that by not only having a firearm and ammunition that also having some legal coverage company. I use his second call defense. I’ve used them for many years. And i do suggest to my students and so i’m going to suggest to you as well. I’ll put a link in the description but if you’re listening to this on a podcast player while you’re driving to work you can’t exactly find that so i would urge you then to go to our website at gun guy dot tv and look for the cw coverage tab on the top or just scroll down the website a little bit and you’ll find a banner ad for second call defense. I strongly suggest you sign up today shooting straight and always right on target. This is a gun guy. He podcast back to what we were talking about. I think the other thing that this has done for us. This year is giving us a lot of time to do stuff around the house. we otherwise wouldn’t ever have gotten done. I mean we’ve had so much stuff around our house. We’ve been wanting to clear out for so long and never seem to have the time to do it. Well twenty twenty is certainly giving us the time for crying out loud. We couldn’t go to the beach for the longest time. We couldn’t go to the mountains. You can’t go get something to eat at the restaurant. You can’t go to the movies. I mean you start running out of things that you can actually do and so at some point you stay home you start looking around thinking kalu. We got a lot of junk. Let’s purge some of this stuff so this year honestly like many people. We’ve done a lot of purging a lot of planning so. Let me just share with you. Some of the pershing we’ve done and you’ll go good grief gun guy. What did you have at your house. For example. we got rid of three now. One not two but three junk cars. Now you’d say to yourself what in the world were three junk cars doing at your house. I can tell you what they were doing. Nothing gathering rats. That’s what they call a rat rod. You know if you leave the hot rods sitting out there long enough and you don’t do anything it becomes a home for vermin and they are calling it. A rat rod. Well we had three rat rods and we got rid of all three of those we have one left and it does run. The other ones did not the but this one does ron and it runs pretty well. But we’re going to sell it and that will be the last of the mohicans when it comes to the junk cars we had around our house. 00:15:04 – 00:20:06 We also got rid of a ton of what i call it. S other people’s stuff. It’s amazing when you own a home. How much stuff other people leave at your house. Hey broken i leave such and such in your garages for a couple of days. And then i’ll come pick it up. Because i don’t have a space for it and we’re moving and blah blah blah. And the next thing you know that thing has been sitting there for two and a half years that cat moved to texas or someplace you haven’t heard from him the whole time and that thing is still sitting in there. You don’t want it need it in half the time you don’t even know what it is at some point or other your gotten so tired of tripping over the darn thing that you just want to get rid of it well. We have purged an enormous amount of other people’s stuff. Another ton of stuff we just never used and so we got rid of that as well and most of it went to the dump and if it was in any kind of usable shape it went to the thrift store. We figured we’d help them out. But the purge going all year and quite frankly it isn’t over yet we’re still purging some of our own stuff but some other people’s stuff as well the one nice thing about it is this year has focused us on that and so we’ve actually gotten rid of a lot of things and matter of fact in the middle of our living room right over by where my wife’s desk is we’ve for quite some time. Something she’s affectionately called the heap. We took all this stuff that we wanted to purge and we piled it there so it was this obnoxious heap of stuff in our living room which is finally gone because we had to get through the heap in order to put up the christmas tree. So pershing has been a very good thing and then we’ve also worked on some plans in our life. This may sound like your household. Am i describing you by any chance. Maybe i am. I don’t know but we worked on some plans as well. We’ve planned some things to do at our house. We want to build a fire pit in the back yard. We’d like very much to build what my wife quaintly calls. A cabana like the copa cabana. I never liked the song very much. But i’ve been humming it lately because we want to put up a cabana. We have a really nice covered porch there. But it’s got all kinds of stuff in my workout equipment and all kinds of things want to move that to the other side of the house and build a cabana so out there will put some great furniture. We’ll put a grill out there. maybe we’ll put a smoker there for nick and he loves to smoke steaks and other stuff and i’d like to have the guys from church. Come over for fight night. And whatever i do like to watch boxing matches and stuff and like that so that’d be kind of cool and or whatever but also for other things movie night and that kind of stuff in the backyard. We’re also going to hopefully solar on it this year. That’ll help us with our electric bill. So we’ve been able to sit around and plan that stuff. And then in the process we purchased a property zona roughly forty acres and We have been sitting around planning a lot of stuff. We want to do with that when you say joel. You said you’re not moving out of california. Well we’re not there you are. Although i have friends who are predicting that we’re gonna be gone. We’re moving to arizona. We’re gonna move out on that forty acre property. So you wouldn’t want to be get out now probably not we live here. We love living in san diego. California can be a nuisance in a lot of ways. I’m seeing california. Move read and we’ll talk about that here in a couple of minutes as well. So chances are we probably won’t move out of california entirely but we do have a lot of plans for that property but for us it will be a second home of sorts a place to escape the hustle and bustle of work and city life or suburban life. Really we don’t really live in the city as much as we live in the suburbs but That’s going to be what we’re gonna do some camping there initially and eventually build things out there so that we can be out there for vacations and hunting and outdoors stuff and disturbed. Enjoy that property while we have it and then you know obviously at some point or other to belong to our kids and they can do with it as they please. If they wanna move out there and i i’m not saying we’ll never move out there. We might but that isn’t the plan at the moment but we do have some great plans for that property and among those plans are to do some things that will do that will be on gun guide. Tv for you. So we’ll talk about that here in just a minute as well. We’ve also learned a lot of stuff. I’m grateful for all the things that we’ve learned because you know when you’re stuck at home well you start learning stuff. Either that or you vegetate and vegetating just never really a bit appealing to me. So i’ll tell you a little bit about the things that we’ve learned in just a minute. I mentioned a few ways that you can support gun guy. Tv one of the ways that you can do that and get access to the exclusive content that you’ll only find their things like the second half of this podcast for example. Just fun stuff. I stick up there every day. You’ll find all that stuff on patriot. So i urge you to check out gun guide. Tv on patriotic and support us over there. While put a link in the description for you but you’ll also find it and our website at gun guy dot tv or for that matter you can just go on patriots and search for gun guy. 00:20:06 – 00:25:03 Tv and join us. There is podcast. Needs your help. Send your entire wallet to the gun guy. Thirteen thirteen mockingbird lane. Translate all kinds of things during the covid times some of which is work related in some of it’s personal. I mean for example. My wife has been sort of forced into doing tele therapy which she wanted to learn anyway but the learning curve was fairly steep still. She’s gotten very good at it. And i gotta tell you that i. It seemed a little bit like a curse but now it’s become a bit of a blessing and it’s actually i think shaped some of our goals and some of her goals were their career to move maybe more of her practice online particularly as we get closer and closer to wanting to retire and do a little traveling and and spend a little time on our property out there in arizona. It’s going to be easier if we’re working primarily online well. Kobe has forced that nothing. Like having your arm tuition into doing something you were planning on doing but didn’t wanna do quite quickly. I’ve also played guitar more this year. I should say have played with it more this year. I still can’t play the darn thing. But i do play with it and that has been fun. The learning curve is fun to deal with because it’s an enjoyable activity not something. I’m being forced to do at the same time. I’ve learned an awful lot of more about wire. Cast which is a software we used to do the interviews for gun guy. Tv where cash is outstanding. It does some amazing things but it is a convoluted piece of spaghetti. And if you change one tiny little thing in one place at seems to affect everything else and why sometimes. My interview sort of blew up. There’s because it’s not wire cast. Obviously it’s the knucklehead using it and that would be me but i have learned an awful lot more about it and i’m getting better at it as time goes by. I think the other thing. I’ve enjoyed and i i haven’t been doing much about it and with it lately as i would like to but certainly pete has are going to get together today and chat a little bit. He’s been doing a lot more. And that is woodworking. I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to purchase some additional tools. So i can spend more time doing that. I have some furniture. I’d like to build and some other things. I’d like to make and hopefully will be able to have more time to do that. Going forward as i do more and more online work and less physical work. Because i did retire from teaching. I’m not teaching on the range anymore except for the one class. I teach for the sheriff’s department Once a month. And that’s it and then there’s also the second amendment stuff which is actually pretty positive coming out of twenty twenty now. What twenty twenty one will bring. I don’t know that all depends on who becomes president and we still have that kind of up in the air. We talked about that on a couple of different podcasts. Here and certainly. I talked about it in the video that i produced the day. But in the meantime during two thousand twenty and during his presidency trump has changed. The federal court system dramatically. Those changes will affect the second amendment positively in court cases for decades. At least that’s my prediction. And that’s certainly the hope of second amendment advocates. All around the country. I think it will be very positive for the second amendment to wait and see but i’ll obviously be surprised if that’s not the case and the work that president trump and mitch mcconnell have done with the federal court system cannot be undone by biden and harris administration at least not very easily. You can’t un appoint judges and the idea of packing. The supreme court is a lot harder to do than people. Make it out so. I don’t think that’s likely to happen either. Although it is a possibility so that’s one of the reasons why we have to win the senate races in georgia and to continue. I think the The battle for the election but moving on the silent majority is no longer silent rallies are still happening. Trump rallies are still happening second amendment rallies are still happening. The silent majority which has been silent for so so long. And i think feeling is if they didn’t have a voice as finally decided to speak out and speak out publicly. Speak out powerfully. And you begin to see these politicians who have been factly and weak-kneed for a very long time step up and start speaking out for their constituents because they’re afraid they’re going to be unelected if they don’t well that’s a very positive turn of events if you ask me and so i think that’s something very positive that honestly donald trump is pretty much single handedly caused to do with his trump supporters and his rallies. It’s also something. I think it will carry on long after president. Trump is no longer president whether that’s in twenty twenty one or four years from now the silent majority is no longer silent. And if you’re part of that group as i am i urge you never to be silent again. Populism is taking hold around the world real people have finally had enough of globalist elites robbing us of our money jobs rights and freedom. 00:25:04 – 00:30:00 And you start seeing that all around the world. Not just the united states it’s an actual movement that has gripped the entire planet. I think and if you want to know more about why and how all the details of that from the standpoint of of a scientist looking at it you can always watch. Steve turley show on youtube or other places. I suppose i don’t know. I watch it periodically. I think he does a couple of videos a day which. I don’t know if i could do that but i do. Watch it periodically. And i learned a lot. Because he’s got the academic background to explain the wise on wherefores which i don’t i just observed happening and i’m frankly very encouraged. I think you should be too. Even in california people are speaking up and things are changing. Citizens have become fed up with the oppressive government in california and gavin newsom or a gruesome nuisance or gavin nuisance. Whatever you wanna call. The guy faces a very strong and very real recall now. The truth is i think he only has a year left in his term. So it might end up symbolic more than anything else. By the time that it’s done but the fact that people are standing up and protesting at the capital of california and standing up to recall. This obnoxious governor. I think is very positive. People are sick of the lockdowns. They’re sick of the over arching overreaching government control and you’re starting to see that sheriffs mayors city councils. Police chiefs are refusing to enforce lockdowns in california. I think that’s phenomenal. It’s not something i would have predicted. But we’re seeing it now. Because their constituents their citizens are fed up. Well what i’m saying is when people get fed up they actually take action so once again. This is another example of the silent majority speaking out and another example of people who have been on the progressive side now being forced to live with the results of what they voted for and not liking it re travis talked about the est. Sam peretti talk about it and others some of these folks who have voted for these strong gun controls for years and supported them. Now wanna go out and get a gun and can’t believe they have to wait ten days or can’t believe they have to have a double background check one for munition. One forgotten can’t believe this that and the other thing why is this and can’t believe they can’t get a concealed carry permit and now they’re discovering that the fruits of their labor are that they don’t like and now they want them change and to that end. We’re starting to see in california’s sheriffs around the state issuing more and more and more concealed carry permits. Now you can say we shouldn’t have to get a permit. We should just be able to carry because it’s a constitutional right and i agree with you. One hundred percent nevertheless. I’m happy. Whenever i see things moving in the right direction and what i’m describing to you is california moving in the right direction of the fifty eight counties in the state i think fifty six are now issuing and that includes los angeles county now los angeles counties not issuing a bunch because they don’t really have the system in place to do it but the sheriff wants to issue a bunch and just that desire and from what i hear from the california rifle and pistol association. Not only the desire but the action to put the processes in place to install the software to hire the people to sign the budget and all the things they need to do to start issuing concealed carry permits residents of los angeles. County is really cool. I mean i would not have predicted that happening in the next ten years and yet it’s happening i think in large part because of covid and because of the fact that people have been forced to wake up to the fact that californians are not free. They thought they were but they’re not and now they would like to enjoy their freedom. People have every political mindset of chosen to buy guns and are now fighting for their second amendment rights rather than against them and that is again. Something that has happened. I think as a result of covid and as a result of the political stuff that we’ve seen happening in our country and in our state and as a result of the populism is hold around the world also in the united states. I’m not sure that a biden win. If it happens is really going to have the ability to squelch that. I think that’s going to continue regardless now. Certainly if it’s a trump win that drives that even farther and harder and better. But i think either way people are fed up and they’re going to make noise they’re not going to be quiet and i think that’s very positive. Then there’s the other piece to which is big tech and the plans that we have for gun guy tv. And all those things. And i’m gonna talk about those two. But unfortunately i’ve run out of time in the public part of the podcast so i’m going to get to those on patriotic. If you’d like to hear the second part of the podcast we’ll talk about the big tech staff. The mainstream media staff and the plans. 00:30:00 – 00:30:28 We have who the future of gun guide tv on patriotic. If you’re on the public podcast player your favorite podcast player. Or you’re watching the video version on youtube or one of the other video distribution centers that. I hope you have a wonderful merry christmas and a great new year. If you’re unpatriotic stick with me we’ll start the next half here in just a minute in the meantime wherever you go whatever you do. You’ve been listening to the gun. Guy tv podcast.

Join us on patriot now. Most the time. I try to do this in two separate subject so that there’s a subject matter for the patriots folks it’s only unpatriotic and there’s a subject matter that i conclude in the first half of the podcast that you’ll miss anything. I don’t know if i’m going to be able to do that today. Although i’m gonna try i actually. It was going to talk about some other things but given the election staff and the concerns about the runoff in georgia and people worrying about what happens if biden actually does become president and the number of emails have gotten in conversations. I’ve gotten. I thought i would cover some of that and hopefully encourage you so i’ve done some detail on it and i’m going to go through it with you. Hopefully it will be encouraging. That is my goal. I realized that in twenty twenty a lot of things are discouraging but if we let that get to us. We don’t get anywhere at all so i’m going to get started here in just a second before. I let me remind you that you can support to podcast by using our amazon link. It will cost you absolutely nothing. If you’d like to shop amazon. I know amazon is not gun friendly. And it’s a big tech company that people don’t want to support. I totally get it. And i feel that way too but i also recognize that people honestly shop amazon anyway. And if you’re going to do that then you might as well do it through our amazon link and pick their pocket a little bit and helped gun guy. tv survive and helps keep this podcast going.

Page every time you go to amazon. If you go to that bookmark and you start from that point than anything you buy at amazon will get credit for. It doesn’t cost you a dime but it does afford is a little bit of a marketing fee and it helps out quite a bit all right onto the stuff that we need to talk about here with my my stack of paper and what got on my computer screen. There’s a whole lot of stuff going on right now and wanted to break it down for your first. Let’s talk about talk first about what trump is doing in the trump campaign is doing to fight for the election. Because truthfully it’s not over until it’s over. Then i’ll talk about the reality of the government actually being able to take your guns and then we’ll talk about what we should be doing and what we can do to fight for our rights. So let’s take it one step at a time first things first. What is the trump campaign actually doing. I’m seeing them do. And this is you know. I’m obviously not a A phd in this or that. I’m just an average guy. But i’ve been watching the news a lot and keeping track of what i’m seeing them do is take essentially two tracks to fight for the president’s reelection again as i said it’s not over till it’s over. Certainly the mainstream media has declared biden the winner. But he isn’t until he is and so in the meantime they’re taking two tracks one is political and one is legal. So let me go over the political one i there. Obviously if you’ve been watching the news holding hearings before state legislatures because what they’re hoping to do is get the state legislatures to take back their control of the electoral college and essentially overturned the election. That’s a very political thing to get legislators to do and they’re more interested in their own legislative agenda. They’re more interested in their own political careers than they are anything else a lot of the time and so trying to get enough of them to agree to do. That’s pretty tough. But that’s nevertheless one of the tracks are working on. So you see rudy giuliani and his team. Going from state to state talking to those legislatures some of which have been very interested in the subject matter. Some of which have kind of bagged him. I think the pennsylvania legislature did that the other day but truthfully winning in that arena is a very. It’s tough it really really is tough. But it’s worth trianon. So that’s what they’re doing. I can’t say that i blame you. Gotta pull out all the stops now. They’re also lobbying the stomach. The state governors so far. That hasn’t been successful but they’re trying a part of this by the way at least got the georgia governor. 00:05:02 – 00:10:01 I think yesterday to ask for a signature verification count or audit of the vote there and so sometimes this political stuff works. it just doesn’t necessarily give you or yield exactly what you want. But if it can move the needle a little bit. That’s a good thing and that’s one of the things that we’re seeing happen. The other thing they’re doing is lobbying the us congress and if you watch the news you can see that there are some people in congress saying that they will not vote for certification of final certification. Congress will fight if they’re in the united states congress and they’re continuing to fight for the senate because right now. The senate is still up for grabs because of the runoff in georgia. Where senators purdue and kelly low flir are running for election in a run off those are key fights because if we lose one or both of those then the senate swings in biden’s favor of biden becomes president because it’ll end up being essentially a fifty fifty senate but remember as vice president. If she ends up vice president would be the tie breaking vote and that would really screw us up. There would be very little resistance or strong resistance capable in the congress for the first couple of years because both the house and the senate would essentially be in some level of control of the democratic party. So it’s important that we win those elections in georgia and that david purdue and kelly flir win at least one of them and hopefully bowl so that’s the political agenda and you’re going to see i think president trump going out there today or tomorrow at a rally to try to get people to vote for purdue and low floor and you saw vice president out there and others who are doing that you’re also saying obama and other people go out there and try to fight for the other side but that’s an area where we’ve got to win and at the same time we’ve got to make sure they don’t do the same thing in the senate election pulling the shenanigans that they did in the presidential one all right then. In addition to the political you’ll also see the legal part which is urging the state legislatures. As i mentioned before to exercise their power under the constitution to take back their authority and appoint electors as they wish so. There’s been an effort to get the legislatures to put pressure. On the governor’s that’s a political lever. If you wanna call it that and then there’s been the of trying to get the legislatures to actually move and use their own power which they’re very hesitant to do. Essentially they’re cowards. Let’s just call it what it is and we knew that and so. I’m not particularly surprised at that. Doesn’t seem to be getting as much traction as we might like. Then there is the court proceeding and they have multiple court proceedings so some of those are happening in the state court within the state and then at some point or other. If they’re not already there they’ll move to the federal court remember in the two thousand election with bush. V gore that bush lost repeatedly in the courts if memory serves me correctly until he finally one show the fact that some of these cases are being tossed well some of the cases that are being tossed or not cases brought by the trump campaign brought by other people and then they’re attributed to the trump campaign even though the trump campaign didn’t bring those cases are brought by other parties. Some of them are being tossed regardless of who brings them but they’re essentially moving through the court system rather rapidly because time is running very very short and some point or other. This is going to end up. I suspect in the federal court system. Remember that there are both criminal courts and the civil courts now. A lot of folks early some anyway in the news at showed that the trump campaign should be pursuing criminal charges against these people rather than suing in civil court. In fact some of the judges. I think have even pointed in that direction. There’s a problem with that. And i think there’s a logical reason why the trump campaign is not doing that and i will try to explain that show that it should least understandable me and hopefully you as well in just a minute. Thank you very much for all of your support of gun guy tv. I’m very grateful. I wanna give you another way that you can do that if you are interested if you’re in california and you’re looking for a part time job or you’re out of a job because are crazy. Governor governor gavin newsom. Gavin gruesome gruesome nuisance. Whatever you wanna call him as restricted a so much and shut down so many jobs. If you’re looking for a job there are plenty of jobs in the security industry and the reason for that is that security is considered part of public safety. And so they are essential. You’d like to get started insecurity. I urge you to checkout pd. S clashes dot com. That’s practical defense systems where you can actually take the courses and complete them on line. You don’t even have to leave your house. Check them out. Pd s classes dot com. Get started insecurity today. You’re listening to the gun guy. Tv podcast please. No attention to the man behind the curtain now back to what i was talking about with criminal versus civil court. There is a difference. 00:10:01 – 00:15:02 And i’m not an attorney so i can’t get too deep into the weeds here but i do urge you to look it up and search it out and look at the difference so that you understand what they may be doing for example in criminal court. You have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the person that you’re or persons that you’re accusing of some criminal behavior committed that crime. That’s a pretty high bar to reach and it’s very difficult. It requires a lot of evidence. And it’s a lengthy challenging procedure because the bar to reach that beyond a reasonable doubt is very very high. Where in a civil lawsuit. That bar is much lower it simply is basically the preponderance of the evidence. The preponderance of the evidence shows that an action occurred that was violation. Then you’ve reached that threshold in the burden of proof now. Burden of proof is much more complex than that. I’ve whittled it down to just very simple stuff but if you look up beyond a reasonable doubt preponderance of evidence and burden of proof in a search engine. You’re going to be able to read a lot more about that. And i think once you’ve done show you’ll understand why the trump campaign is going the civil suit route rather than the criminal route. It might also explain why the department of justice and the f. b. I haven’t done anything now. I’m of the opinion that the reason why they haven’t done anything is purely political. Because i don’t trust the department of justice in the fbi. As i could throw my house but nevertheless it may also be that. In order for them to do something criminally they have to have absolute proof because they have to prove that those individuals did what they did with criminal intent beyond a reasonable doubt and that takes a lot of time and a lot of effort and a lot of evidence gathering likewise one of the other reasons. Trump campaign may be pursuing the civil suit arena. Is that again it’s quicker and the preponderance of evidence threshold is lower and they don’t have to prove as much they don’t have to get they don’t have to get names and catch them with with their hands on the cookie jar. Whatever the huge number of depositions taken under the penalty of perjury under oath are a tremendous amount of evidence that can be used. I think more effectively in a civil proceeding than they could be used in a criminal proceeding would require more so watch those cases. I have a feeling that’s going to bubble up to the united states supreme court and then when it does remember that in the federal court system we have a lot more conservative construction s originalist judges and we used to. And i’ll talk about that here in just a minute. But that’s that’s where it’s going through that system. I would say don’t get discouraged by the losses in the lower courts. Those are actually something i think. The trump team expected likewise. I wouldn’t get too discouraged by the legislatures refusing to take their power back at a their own electors. That was a long shot deal in the first place but at the same time doing that. Also got the information out to the public. So there’s the public arena as well which is very very important and that information was not getting out because big tech was not letting it get out when you go to a legislature and they hold a hearing that information is gonna get out and it’s getting out all over the place so people are seeing the evidence. They saw the video from georgia the other day which was quite compelling and that is as a result of the trump campaign legal team having these hearings. So there’s a multifaceted kind of approach. Which i find actually kind of interesting to be honest with you if we just take the worst case scenario and say all right now. After all of this trump loses and biden becomes president and kamala harris becomes vice. President let me ask the question. Do you think they’ve biden can effectively take away all of our guns well. I’m gonna say that. I don’t think it’s actually. It’s not impossible but it’s very improbable. Almost impossible particularly in a single four-year term. So let’s talk about that. I did a little research today. According to the brookings institute there are more guns than people in the united states four hundred million are in circulation for a population of about three hundred and twenty seven million people. That’s that’s a lot of guns. Okay and i am going to tell you. I think that number is conservative. I think there are more guns out there than four hundred million because they really can’t track them because they really don’t know where they are. Who has them in just a first six months of twenty twenty around nineteen million firearms were sold. Didn’t include the ones that were already in circulation are already known in the united states. That’s nineteen million that were sold in just the first six months of two thousand twenty that doesn’t include what was sold in the next six months of twenty twenty holy smoke. 00:15:02 – 00:20:04 We could easily have added forty or fifty million guns to the circulation in the year. Twenty twenty because the truth. Is that all of this nonsense with nancy. Pelosi in the house impeachment nonsense and russia russia russia and the election and everything else and the pandemic and the civil unrest and the rioting and all these other things have driven gun sales through the roof and ammunition sales through the roof. And that’s why you can’t get him. You are defined primers and reloading components and all that kind of stuff so there are a tremendous number of guns in circulation in the united states and remember that most states that i’m aware of do not register firearms if you’re in california. Yeah when you buy. A gun is registered in california. It’s not registered in the fbi database. It’s register if they have one which i’m sure they do. It’s registered in the state of california. That’s where it’s registered nephew. Leave california and move to another state. Those guns can be sold in a private sale. They can be. I mean other states don’t require you to do much. you can sell them in a private sale. You can do all these things that you cannot do in states like california which means once you’ve moved into another state. Nobody knows were those guns. Are they know you used to have them. But they don’t know if you still do and they can’t prove whether you do or you don’t and in some places it’s not required for you to prove that one way or the other so there you are that being the case there are so many guns in the united states that it’s an on impossible for the government to ban them particularly in one single for year presidential term. Like i said where are those guns. Well unless you live in a state where the guns are registered. The truth is nobody actually knows. And if you leave that state or you have friends in another state were those guns might be. They still don’t know even in states. That register guns. The truth is nobody actually knows what guns are in those states like california who has them or where they are they know about some but the some they know about truthfully is the minority even in the state of california remember that long guns shotguns and rifles. As far as i remember. I think the law changed in two thousand fourteen but prior to that anything you bought as a long gun was not registered. Now those records are required by federal ought to be kept by the dealer for twenty years. But they’re kept and housed in the dealers location. Which means if the government wants to know about the guns they have to go to each and every dealer to get those records. Well they don’t have the manpower to do that or the money to do that. That’s not in. Those records are paper in many respects. I mean they’re getting to the point where now they’re more more technologically advanced but a lot of those records for paper and after twenty years. The gun store can destroy those so if you bought a gun more than twenty years ago there is no record of it period unless you bought it in a state that registered at the time if you bought a handgun twenty years ago in the state of california. Yeah that’s probably registered but if you bought a long gun twenty years ago there’s no record of that at all so they don’t really know where those are the idea that they could just come. Knocking on doors are taking. Guns is just not realistic. It’s possible i suppose but it’s not realistic. In fact i’ll tell you what let’s look at that real quick. Who is going to actually confiscate those guns. I found a website that holds a lot of statistics called statistics. Statistics dot com s. T. a. t. i s. t. a. dot com. And they say that there are roughly six hundred ninety eight thousand sworn law enforcement officers in the united states. Now that includes all of them. That’s the fbi the da. The park police all the federal law enforcement folks. Ncis the campus police at your local college. Your local city. Police your local sheriff. Your state police. All of those are all included in those everybody from the cop. Who’s right you. A ticket to the fbi agent investigating terrorism six hundred ninety eight thousand sworn law enforcement officers in the united states and by the way there are areas wanting to defend them which means that in some cases that number is shrinking and certainly in some cases. Their budgets are shrinking. Now the nearest town to me is a town called el cajon an alcohol. And i think there’s one hundred and ten thousand people and there are one hundred and five. I think one hundred five police officers. That’s kinda typical. Okay now if we look at that six hundred gonna do a little math here. Hope you don’t mind we look at that. Six hundred ninety thousand sworn law enforcement officers in the united states. If i did my math right. That is roughly point. Two one four. That’s a little over point. Two percent not two percent point two percent of the united states population which means for every one hundred thousand. Us residents there are two hundred and fourteen cops that includes the local police state police. 00:20:04 – 00:25:06 Federal police campus cops. Everybody so as i said in the little town of it’s not that little one hundred and ten thousand. I think they have local police officers. They have a hundred and five. I think are one hundred and seven or something that doesn’t include again. Federal or campus cops at the local community. College is a community college in the city of alcohol. And i think or the police have happened to be the campus cops at the high school if they have them. Or whatever doesn’t include. Those san diego unified school district. Has its own police. Department for example doesn’t include those guys the park police campus police. And those folks are not going to show up at your door taking your guns which means there’s only a subset of those which are going to be enforcing these laws. Most of those cops are busy with other duties. They don’t have the bandwidth to go door to door. Enforcing firearms restrictions. The number of cops that they’re going to have do that. It’s just a handful of cops. So what exactly does that mean. Well it would seem to mean to me that any organized enforcement is going to be on a relatively small basis because they only have so many officers to do it. But it’s going to happen mostly in major city centres because that’s where the cops are the majority of the cops that we’re talking about are in major cities. They’re not in rural areas. I mean for example. My wife and i have a roughly forty acre rural property in arizona the only law enforcement and that enormous county is a county sheriff and the county. Sheriff doesn’t have a whole lot of deputies. So who’s gonna come out traversing the twenty some odd miles from the nearest little cattle town. Where my property is to come out there and knock on my door and asked me if i have an ar fifteen first of all. I don’t think county sheriff in that county would be willing to do it anyway because he probably wouldn’t get reelected if he did so. I just don’t think that’s going to happen. And the fbi certainly is going to go out there to do at the gonna go out there to do what they’re going to focus on the major cities. We’ll talk more about this. In just a second given the fact that the police departments are being funded in some parts of the country and the riots continue. It seems and we look at. Who’s going to be president. And i don’t and either way half the country is gonna be mad. There is a chance for continued violence in major cities in particular. Now i live in san diego. I don’t see a lot of that here but if you live in la as possible or if you live in You know another big city like chicago or whatever they have violence anyway regardless and detroit. Same way if you have a gun or you purchased a gun to defend your home or defend yourself. You certainly want to have some legal coverage for that. I encourage checkout second. Call defense now. I want to say up front that we have an affiliate relationship was second call. Defensive actually used them for years. Before i got that affiliate relationship and recommended him during that time i still recommend them and i still use them. If you’d like to check them out you can look for a link in the description for second call defense and if you can’t find it there i would appreciate it if you’d go to our website at gun guide dot tv and usually second call defense menu item or if you like on the side of the website if you scroll down a little bit. There’s a banner ad for second call defense since we haven’t affiliate relationship with them if you choose to use them as your concealed carry and self defense coverage that would benefit us and so i would very much appreciate you using our link or our banner ad on the gun guide dot tv website. Checkout second call defense shooting straight and always right on target. This is a gun guy t podcast all right back to. Who’s gonna come get these things like. I said they don’t have the bandwidth or the officers to go door to door to do this stuff. Any organization force meets probably going to happen in major cities. It’s not gonna happen in rural areas or even an extra was probably the folks that live between the rural areas and the suburbs. Chances are they’re not going to go out there too much either. Honestly given the small number of officers who actually have the time energy and money to focus on this stuff more than likely they’re gonna go after low hanging fruit and they’re going to do what they do in california in california they really just look at prohibited persons. They compare the registration database with the prohibited persons list. And if they see a nexus between the two brads. Smith is a prohibited person and he also is registered as having a firearm. They go when they knock on fred smith’s door that’s what they can do with the resources that they have. They really can’t do more than that. Match in the state of california which is heavily restricted. Anything that biden does is certainly not going to what is already done in the state of california. So if you wanna look and see what happens with those confiscation efforts. Look at states like california. And you’re gonna find out that really. There’s only so much law enforcement can do. And that’s because they don’t have the manpower they don’t have the money and they just don’t have the bandwidth they have other crimes they have to go after and the federal agencies. 00:25:06 – 00:29:47 Certainly don’t have the the money time or band with the run around the country and confiscate these things so if you get caught with it as a criminal or if you are prohibited person and you have it then yeah are they gonna come knock on your door probably beyond that as long as you stay under the radar with. You’re probably not going to get taken away. And frankly most people in the united states gun owners are not going to comply with those laws anyway. And that’s minister typically shown in states like california if you tell californians that magazine say previously owned reliable. They’re not gonna go in and they’re not registered to how you’re gonna find him while you’re not if you tell them that guns. They’ve had for twenty or thirty years or now illegal and they know that you don’t know that they have them they’re not gonna tell you so they’re not gonna comply or they’re going to take them out of state or are they going to do whatever they’re not going to comply so typically what we’ve seen is that law abiding gun owners do not in mash. At least they don’t comply with these laws that make them instant criminals. Some of them do but the vast majority don’t it’s important to remember too and this is the other part. I want to encourage you with regard lois. Even if biden becomes president. Remember that every unconstitutional law regulation regardless of whether it’s firearms related or not is going to be challenged by some organization or group of people in federal court. That’s very positive. Because president trump has already appointed hundreds and hundreds of constitutional conservative originalist judges to the federal court system. And he’s still doing it and mitch. Mcconnell is still approving them he’s still confirming them in the senate in fact mitch. Mcconnell has said they’re going to run through the tape. That’s a quote. They’re going to keep working doing that. And approving judges in the senate until the last possible minute just like running a fifty yard dash. They’re going to keep running all the way through the tape. They’re not going to slow down. Which means the three hundred judges or whatever that have already been appointed are not the limit. Trump is still appointing those judges and the senate is still confirming them. Which means there’s a very strong possibility that that court case is going to land a construction est conservative federal court. And even if it doesn’t if it moves up trump has already changed the face of the circuit courts the ninth circuit court which i sit under. Unfortunately in the state of california used to be called the nutty ninth or the kangaroo court or whatever and at this point it has been changed dramatically. It is now pretty much a fifty fifty court. So when you go to the ninth circuit you got a fifty fifty shot of winning if you are taking an unconstitutional law before that court were before. It was pretty much a rubber stamp for every unconstitutional. Anti-gun law that they ever wanted to bring before them. That’s not the case anymore. And even if you do lose their if the supreme court will hear it. I just looking at what the supreme court’s doing now. I’m very encouraged by the kinds of things. What they’re doing if the supreme court hears it you now have a five to four court now. Some people are calling it a six to three court. It isn’t chief justice roberts to quote sampras around that court on a pogo stick bouncing from one side to the other. He’s totally unreliable. He does whatever he does. And so you got to say that guy’s gonna vote with the liberal anti-gun as just is so now we have a five to four very strong conservative court and our chances are very good there. So anything that joe biden does if joe biden actually becomes president anything that he does whether it’s a regulation that he changed or some law that the house and senate passed that he signed. Anything that’s even remotely unconstitutional is going to be dragged before the court system and the court system may overturn those. I have a feeling that the biden presidency is going to see the same kind of resistance from our side that the trump presidency saw from the other side. The difference would be that we don’t have the swamp in washington dc on our side and we don’t have the mainstream media on our side. And i’m going to talk about those things and i’m going to encourage you about that as well but unfortunately i’m out of time for the public part of the podcast because we burn up our first half of it so that we’re going to have to do on patriot’s only if you’d like to listen to that. Please do join us on patriots. Now if you’re listening on your podcast player thank you very much for all of your support. Thank you for listening and i. I really hope you have a wonderful christmas.

Stay informed there’s lots of different ways to do that now that you didn’t have before we’ll talk about that on patriots you’re patriots stick with me otherwise wherever you go whatever you do stay safe.

Big Tech & Media Don’t Pick the President – Episode 82
Topics in this episode: Big tech and the main stream Marxist media want to pick Joe Biden as president. However, the election is not over until it’s over… And it’s not over yet. I’ll explain why in this podcast. All politics are local. I’ll give you some real world examples of why that statement is true.

It’s time for the gun guide. Tv podcast hi. This is cheryl persinger. I’m the gun guy. Thank you very much for all of your support on gun guy. Tv and everything that you do to support this podcast as well. I am extremely grateful. Now on this podcast. I am going to talk about the election stuff. And i honestly wasn’t going to. But i’m going to. Because the mainstream media the mainstream marxist media as many people call it is blocking every bit of news about donald trump’s contesting the election. And the reasons why he is and since the mainstream news is blocking these things. Those of us in the alternative media have to speak up because if we don’t then nobody knows what’s going on now. There are some places you can actually get regular news and find out what’s happening. They’ll give you a couple of them right now. I would check out newsmax. And also a n one america news network you can also look at breitbart and so on although breitbart can be somewhat hyperbolic sometimes but it’s a great website to find out things. You’re not gonna find other places. And i i gotta tell ya. I’ve stopped really looking at fox news because fox news is a mash and it has kind of dived in the with the rest of them pushing joe biden on us even though joe biden has yet to win the election. We’re gonna talk more about that in the first half of the podcast. Do wanna remind you that the podcast is broken into two sections where the first part which is a half an hour long. Roughly sometimes i go a little long. Forgive me it’s the italian in me. I talked too much. I guess. But sometimes i’ll go along with it but roughly. It is about thirty minutes long and that is available on your favorite podcast players. So you can find that all over the place on iheart. Stitcher pod. Bean about an. I can’t think of all the rest of them just about every podcast player on the planet is where you’re gonna find the gun guy. Tv firearms podcasts. So if you look it up you’ll find it. I have to confess to you. I’m not a techno wiz. And i don’t have a producer whatever so i’m not as good about making that easily found on those platforms as i would like to be. You’ll have to actually search for it. It probably won’t just come up in your feet just so that you know i’ve had people tell me. Well i don’t see it available anywhere. Well you’ll have to search for gun guy. Tv firearms podcasts. If you do that it should come up without any problem. It’s certainly will come up on iheart and stitcher and some of the other ones that i mentioned but you can also go to our website at gun. Guide dot tv and click on podcast and it will give you a list of some of the easier ones to follow and maybe you can find the one. Maybe you’ve got the app. Download it and you can follow the podcast there all right. Let’s talk about what’s going on with the election. As far as i can tell in this first part of the podcast and then in the second part of the podcast. We’re gonna talk a little bit about why. Politics are important locally. There’s an old saying all politics are local and there’s a reason for that and we’ll talk about that in the second half of the podcast which is on patriot. Only right now in the media if you look in the mainstream media you’re gonna find it. Everybody is trying to convince everybody else. A joe biden is president elect. Well he’s not. And that’s the thing i think to remember is the media no matter how much they might like to crown themselves the authorities of the world they do not in any way select the electors and they do not in any way. Select who wins elections. It’s the electors who elect presidents. the electors are in each individual state. So what happens. Is the people vote. That’s the popular vote. And then based upon how they voted the electors each state. Then come together and they vote for president. Well that hasn’t happened. The media does not select the winner of the president election or presidential election or any other election for that matter. They can talk about it all they want to. They can call the election quote unquote if they want to. But that doesn’t mean anything. In fact joe biden can stand up. And say i won only wants to or donald. Trump can stand up. Say one i’ll too but that doesn’t mean anything either. What means something is when the constitutional process ends and that is that the votes are cast by the elect doors and the president is selected. And that won’t happen for awhile. And the reason i won’t happen for a little bit is because the election is being contested. Now where you’ve seen the media do this in the past if you remember if you’re old nevis probably in the year two thousand when the election was going on between george w bush and al gore. We’ll talk about that one in a minute but it happened previously in kind of a lesser way in nineteen forty eight when the chicago daily tribune announced that dewey had beat truman in the presidential election. Well the fact is dewey didn’t be truman. There’s never been a president dewey and indeed truman. 00:05:01 – 00:10:03 You might have seen the famous photo where truman held up that newspaper without headline after it had been announced that he had won the presidential election. So this has happened before where the media has tried to usurp. The election has tried to decide what they want to decide and try to force a candidate down the throats of the american people and down throats of this lyrical system by virtue of the fact that they have a lot of power in the sense that they can produce a lot of information to dispel it everywhere now at one time in nineteen forty eight the power rested with the newspapers back in the year. Two thousand it was the washington times with the headline president gore florida pushes gore over the top. Well there’s never been a president because florida indeed didn’t push gore over the top. It was a contested election. It went on for a while in court. And at some point or other and We’ll talk about the dates. Actually in just a minute george. Bush was made president and rightfully so because he won the vote. Now that was an instance where people said. Well yeah but won the popular vote and president. Bush didn’t win the popular vote. He won the electoral college. And that’s wrong. It should have gone with the popular vote. Well here’s the problem with that. In the wisdom of our founders. They created a system whereby the president of the united states is selected based upon the electoral college. Not the popular vote and the reason why they did that is because some states like california for example or new york these states some of them are heavily populated and some states. Don’t have a very big population like rhode island for example or montana for example and by extension. Then if you just use the popular vote then the states that have enormous populations are going to ramrod through whatever they want and the states. That don’t have big populations are going to have no say at all they’re just gonna have to suffer under the edicts of states like california. Well that’s not fair to all americans in it’s not equal protection under the law not equal representation and so in their wisdom. The founding fathers came up with the idea of an electoral college so that each state has a number of electors and that those electors get to vote for president and that way a state like rhode island or a state like montana or a state like wyoming. That doesn’t have as many people in it. As a as a highly concentrated population like the state of california they actually have a voice and they can contribute may think about the iowa caucus right. Think about the new hampshire and these other states that are so pivotal in the election for president. They wouldn’t have a choice at all. If it weren’t for the electoral college. The people running for president the The candidates would never bother to go there. They’d never bothered to spend any time in those states at all because those states would have no say if it was the popular vote alone and that’s why leftist want the popular vote because guess where they live most of them live in the cities in these populated states. Like california new york new jersey and so on on the right and left coast. If you wanna call it that so obviously they wanna get rid of the electoral college because it removes any power that the middle section of the country might have you know the people in kansas are not gonna have any power any more than any place that these folks on the right and left coast would call fly over country would have no power anymore if we got rid of the electoral college. And that’s why we don’t do that and we don’t want to do that but the mainstream news talk about it all the time. They’ll let these leftist talk about it all the time because they don’t want you to know now we’re gonna talk more about what’s happening currently in just a moment but i’ve got to make that you’re aware of one thing sense. There are so many brand new gun owners out there. I think it’s important that they understand that. Defending yourself with a firearm is not the end of everything. It’s sometimes it’s just the beginning of defending yourself in many states. If you defend yourself with a firearm california being one if you defend yourself with a firearm you’re likely to possible criminal prosecution now in some states. That’s not the case and even in california depends on when and where you do it but each state’s laws are different now. In addition to criminal prosecution you’re quite likely in many states to face a lawsuit brought by the person you shot or the family of the person who shot if the person who shot didn’t survive. We’ve seen that over and over again and certainly in states where it’s highly political. You’re going to see things happen to gun owners likes happening to kyle rittenhouse right now Or the mccloskey’s or mccloskey’s i can never get that right in saint louis when they really didn’t do anything illegal at all but they’re being prosecuted because of politics so once you actually involve a firearm in a self defense situation you’ve got to have some financial backing to defend yourself in court if you’re well heeled and you’ve got tons of money and you don’t care we’ll that’s That’s a whole different proposition. 00:10:03 – 00:15:01 But most of us don’t don’t don’t have that. I don’t have that and so i looked to companies like second call to fench and ccw safe to make sure that i’ve got coverage for that. And i have two companies to do that. Because i follow the military mantra that too is one and one is none so knowing that plan a can fail. I always want to have a plan b. So my plan a well first of all my plan is not to get in that situation in the first place but sometimes it finds you whether you like it or not. Then we’ve seen that over and over again in this goofy year of two thousand twenty but plan a then with coverage would be for me is ccw safe the incredible coverage that they have incredible service that they offer incredible in fact when i researched them. Ccw safe was by far the best period and so my plan a is ccw safe. My plan b is then second call defense and the reason why you second call defenses. I like certain aspects of their service. But i also just really liked the people in the company. I’ve spoken to them a lot Been on the phone with the owner and the founder a lot and I’ve discovered they’re really great company. And i like them. And both of those companies have a track record of getting behind people who are their members and defending them in fact as far as i know she she w safe is the only one that has a a history of actually defending somebody against a first degree murder charge and winning. So i would investigate. Cw safe and second call defense for your coverage now. If you’re going to do that i do ask you to do this. They do support gun guy. Tv we have what’s called an affiliate relationship with them. So if you’re going to sign up will either one. I would really appreciate it if you’d go to our website at gun guide dot tv and look at the banner ad on the rights of you. Scroll down on the website. You’ll find them. That’ll take you to their website through our affiliate links. So when you sign up we actually get a little marketing fee because we support them and then they support us so check them out see. Cw safe and second call defense. You’ll find them on the gun. Guy dot tv website. Podcast needs your help. Send your entire wallet to the gun. Thirteen thirteen mockingbird lane. Translate all right. Let’s get back to what i was talking about before. Which is what the media is doing and how people vote. i went over. What happens when people vote that they vote and then the electoral college takes over from there and they submit their electoral votes based upon how people voted in each state. And in this way these folks get a voice. Because like i said if you’re in a state without a big population you wouldn’t have a voice really if it was simply an issue of popular vote as a microcosm of that you look at me and if you think about counties like you would stage i live in southern california so i live in san diego county well even though the city that i live closest to in the area where i live close as very conservative we get overwhelmed by the big population of california which is very leftie liberal show when it comes to presidential politics. Our coach absolutely nothing. I vote my family votes but it never. I have not voted for a president in the state of california and had that president. actually carry california in my lifetime. And i’m in my sixties unless reagan carried california. I don’t remember. I don’t think he did but if he did. That’s the one time that’s it. Every other time my vote has been drowned out by the lefty liberals in the state of california. Well now take that and realize that if you because of the popular vote in california and then the electors from california. Elect the president. If you do away with the electoral just imagine that popular. Vote feel across the country. And that’s what would happen to you. No matter where you are you’re gonna get drowned out by california and new york and these states with huge populations that vote very left leaning and very socialist. So that’s what we want to avoid all right Going back to what. I was talking about though once. That vote happens if for some reason. There’s some problem with the vote either. The it’s a razor thin result. Which is what happened in. Florida in two thousand or there’s some suspicion about sketchy ballads sore maybe fraud. Or whatever. what you’re going to see you see recounts and lawsuits initially. That’s what you see. And in florida in two thousand. They had a bunch of recounts. in fact. You may remember if you’re around the whole issue over the hanging chad because back then you took a little pointer and you poked out the whole for the person that you wanted to vote for. There was little like an old. Ibm reader card. From when i was in school. I know i’m old. Okay but That’s that was the hanging. Chad deal went on for a while. So you have recounts and then you’ll also have lawsuits what you’re seeing right now. Is president trump requesting recounts and filing lawsuits lawsuits supposedly going to be filed today. There were lawsuits filed. The other day and the supreme court has already got involved in the state of pennsylvania. 00:15:01 – 00:20:01 And you can read more about that. i’ll find it. Put a link of the description for you and you can see what’s happening with that so far. But the united states supreme court has already issued an order to the state of pennsylvania with regard to the vote to separate any votes that were cast after the closing of the poll so if they were cast after eight pm they have to be counted separately because the law in that state refer that and the supreme court wants to look at that. I have a sneaking suspicion that all of those middle of the night votes that went for biden are going to be removed because they’re unlawful. So this is stuff that happens. Lawsuits recounts and so now. If that doesn’t resolve it it can go to congress and these are all legal remedies to resolve a conflict within a presidential election so the illegal remedies are there. What trump is doing is not illegal and it’s not wrong. It’s not immoral. It’s not unethical. He has seen some irregularities in a lot of them actually throughout different states. And so he’s requesting recounts and filing lawsuits and that’s exactly what he should do. If the role was reversed and people were declaring trump the winner and the biden team saw these same irregularities. I would expect that they would file lawsuits and asked for recounts. That’s precisely what they should do. And at the end of the day. The idea is to have every legal vote counted and every illegal vote or fraudulent vote removed. And then once you count them up and you sort it out then. Whoever wins wins. And that’s how that works. Which is a fairly straightforward process. But it does take a lot of time for example in the year two thousand. Al gore did not concede the election until december thirteenth. No i did not say november december thirteenth in other words. The recount went on for a month and a half. Almost the whole thing went on for a long time. And that’s okay. At the end of the day. The united states supreme court in bush versus gore. Again we get to recounts and lawsuits right. This was a lawsuit. Bush versus gore went to the supreme court and at that point the supreme court put a stop to the couch. Even though the florida supreme court had ordered them to continue and what they did that once. The supreme court put a stop to the recount on december twelfth albor who stated on the thirteenth and. He didn’t agree with the court’s decision but that he would abide by it and he stepped out of the race and conceded the election to george bush. Well that’s how it’s supposed to work. There are legal remedies and watch remedies or exhausted. Whoever wins wins and whoever loses loses so in this instance donald trump is not doing anything he shouldn’t be doing. He’s doing precisely what he should be doing. He is seeing every and he’s using the legal process to exhaust every legal remedy available to him to see if he can prove that either he won or biden one without all the risk of fraud and illegal votes and those kinds of things which are apparent at this point That is fairly widespread so when the media steps forward and says in spite of the fact that there is a legal process in our constitution set by our laws. Established by our founders. That doesn’t matter what matters is. The media has decided who’s going to be president. Then the media has become the enemy of the people and the enemy of the united states. They want what they want. They think they’re powerful enough to do it. Well i’m here to say they’re not today. There was a story in the news I think it’s in breitbart news and we’re gonna talk about alternative places to actually get news in just a minute but in breitbart there a story that says trump campaign seeks public records in clark county nevada as part of election challenge. You know that that story does not appear anywhere that i could find in mainstream media. Nothing about trump’s challenge to these. Things appears in mainstream media. That i could find not not on fox not on cnbc nbc cnn. Abc cbs nbc. None of them. Now if you find it let me know. But i could not find it this morning when i was looking and so as a result president trump is having to go back to the way. He’s gotten the news out in the past. Twitter has been absolutely banning many of his tweets. They’ve been censoring them by erasing them entirely and putting up a little notice that this tweet was taken down because it violates their policy against fake news. Well it’s not fake news. I’ve seen tweets. That have come out. And they’ve said essentially that he’s announcing a lawsuit on monday and then that tweet will go away because that’s fake news fake news. It’s monday guess. What by the end of the day there’s gonna be lawsuits in pennsylvania and a few others places because that’s actual news but they don’t want to talk about it and so as a result team trump is doing what they need to do to do that. There’s a story in breitbart. Today’s says team trump plans campaign rallies to contest the election results president donald trump’s presidential campaign plans a series of campaign rallies the boost attached to his legal challenge of the two thousand twenty election. 00:20:02 – 00:25:16 Now why would he need to boost attention to it if the news was covering it he wouldn’t because everybody would know but right. Now we have a concerted effort by the mainstream media. And i’m gonna call the marxist media because that’s what they are the mainstream media to keep you the american citizen to keep you voter from knowing what’s happening with the election and to convince you that joe biden is the president elect. Now let me pause right here and just say that joe biden may be the president-elect i don’t know and he doesn’t either and the media and you know what donald trump may be continuing as president for another four years. I don’t know and he doesn’t either and neither does the media and until the process is completed nobody will know so we have to get through the process and as. I said it doesn’t necessarily happen quickly. I know we live in the instant generation. We used to call the microwave generation. I guess now we call it the twitter generation where everybody wants to know right now with the answer is and nobody has any patients but unfortunately the wheels of justice often moves slowly so we have to be patient and if you voted for trump support him support him. i am voted for trump. And show. What am i doing. I’m part of the alternative media. Admittedly i’m a very small part but nevertheless i’m part of the alternative media so i’m making sure people are aware of the fact that there is a fight going on over this election because of irregularities and obvious examples of fraud in the voting process and because this is obviously being twisted and bent by the media to go the direction that they want while the media does not get to do that the media and the members of the media are like every other citizen in the united states each one of them gets one vote and that’s it and they don’t get to twist the election into what they want so hang in there and stay with it. People are upset about this. I get it but what you’re seeing now is the pro-trump folks are having little rallies and they’re starting to come out and do things to support. The president urge you to do that. So if you live in a city where you guys have had maybe gone out and you had a A boat rally or something do it again or maybe you’ve had. I don’t know some sort of a caravan with cars. Or whatever what trump’s i’d do it again it out and do it again. Let the president see that. You support what he’s doing in fighting the fight to see who actually won. Because i just got to venture personal opinion here. I think by did not win. I think trump won. And i think they pulled shenanigans and cheated in order to dump a bunch of ocean there at the last minute to get biden over the hump and if that’s the case then trump is our president now at the same time if it’s proven after you get through all of this process and all the illegal votes and fraudulent voter thrown out and only the legal ones are counted. If it’s proven that joe biden was elected president then. Joe biden is the president of the united states. And i’ll respect that. But i wanna know as a us citizen. I want to know that the security and sanctity of our elections are protected. And right now. I don’t know that and personally i don’t trust the media and i don’t trust that the vote has been counted accurately and until it has been. I don’t believe it. So i’m going to act on it as i am by getting the news out as best i can now. I do want to mention to you real quick. I’m super duper long. There’s other ways that you can help support gun guy. Tv one of those ways which is the easiest to use amazon as our us our amazon link. When you’re shopping. Amazon amazon is by far unfriendly to guns. I get it. I totally do but no matter how many times i’ve said in the past you might wanna stop shopping amazon. Everybody does when i catch myself doing it. Okay so people shopping amazon. Because it’s convenient. I get it i understand all right so i’m not gonna take issue with that what i am going to say. If you want to. You can pick amazon’s pocket for some money and help out gun guy. Tv by using our amazon link the easiest way to do it is go to our website at gun. Guide dot tv and click on the banner on the top. There’s a rectangular banner in the top that says amazon or shop with amazon. Or whatever you click on that. It will take you to amazon’s page actual amazon website. But it’ll do it through our amazon affiliate link and then once you’re on that amazon page after you clicked on that banner. Bookmark that page. And whenever you shop amazon go back to that. Bookmark and that way. Anything you by amazon. At that time we’ll get credit for it doesn’t cost you a dime it it It’s the same so you’re amazon. Prime works everything. Works exactly the same. It’s just that amazon. Pays us marketing fees. So please help outgun guy. Tv abuse our amazon link saving the second amendment one episode at a time. This is the gun guy tv pot now. I do want you to hang in air through this entire process but there one thing you should understand is that in two thousand supreme court decision which effectively ended the recount and handed the victory to bush was seen as a very controversial thing by the gore people now gore conceded but they never seemed to accept the legitimacy of bushes victory. 00:25:16 – 00:28:54 I think the same thing is happening here. In fact i think the media’s efforts are because they know that joe biden didn’t win or they strongly suspected so they hope that by doing what they’re doing they’ll force trump to stop fighting or they’ll force republicans to abandon him or they’ll force americans who abandoned him so that they can install into a presidency. He did not win. Now is a plan. B for them if that doesn’t work out if bush. I’m sorry if trump won’t give up if trump keeps fighting and we know trump’s fighter because we wouldn’t have four hundred and some odd miles wall just southern border if he wasn’t trump keeps on fighting and it ends up being settled and they find out that trump one then they will use all this media. And all this stuff. They’re doing to spend the next four years claiming that trump is an illegitimate president who stole the presidency. I think that’s their goal. And since i think that’s their goal i’m to keep beating this drum and hopefully you will help me so i do ask you also share. The podcast share the video. If it’s on a video share it With with french cinema link for my heart or sicher whatever so that they actually get the news to and i will put in the links to in the description. A list of some websites. You might look at if you want to actually get the news. But first and foremost i would say Mac is a good one one. America news is another good one. Breitbart is another good one and then for social media. Look at parlor. It’s not nearly as robust as twitter is. But you’re seeing more and more people move that direction because parlor is not censoring and they started it for the sole reason to not censor because it’s not as established or as fully built out as twitter or facebook. It is a little clunky. What twitter and facebook. You used to be Very clunky but nevertheless it’s there and so we are at gun guy. Tvm posting on parlor. But i’m not posting quite as much. Because i can’t schedule them. I’m just posting the things that are key. We will post links to every video and that we put up so if you wanna just subscribe to that system. Then even if youtube goes away. We’re producing videos. I’m always going to post a link to the video and where it is on parlor for you. Okay so there you are well anyway that hopefully that covers a little bit of the election. I’m not an analyst. I can’t do the political analyst Stuff for you. But i can tell you that it ain’t over till it’s over and It has no over. Trump is still fighting. Look at these alternative places and you’ll find out what he’s doing and you’ll find some truth in the news which you’re not gonna get from fox news or any of the other mainstream outlets unfortunately so you gotta go look elsewhere to get the actual news and like i said newsmax one. America news breitbart. They’re all gonna have things on there that you don’t see anywhere else so i would check those out as well. Well i have gone long. I apologize for that. I’m gonna get started with the second part of the podcast. If you’re listening on your favorite podcast player. I do thank you very much for for listening And consuming the podcast.

Got a new gun? What are the limits of armed self-defense? – Episode 81
Topics in this episode: In this episode of the GunGuyTV Firearms Podcast I discuss the legal, ethical, and practical limits of armed self-defense. I also take a practical and logical look at body armor for citizens and preppers.

What are the limits of armed self-defense? Episode 81 00:00:01 – 00:05:01 Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition. It’s time for the gun guy TV podcast. Hi, this is Joel Persinger. I’m the gun guy. Thank you very much for all of your help and your support of gun guy TV. I’m very very grateful for everything that you do. So, please don’t stop we’re going to have a great podcast for you today. There’s a couple of subjects. I’m going to page that have become. Well, honestly, there’s a lot of questions I get on these two things and I’ve been getting these questions a lot lately I suspect because we’re getting closer and closer to election day and because of threat of civil unrest following the election no matter who wins and the civil unrest we see in the news all the time. So the two questions have been getting a lot this last few weeks are what about armor. I’ve gotten a number of those. I got one from a patreon subscriber the other day about how do you make your house more bullet-resistant and armor that you can work and sealed or armor that you wear that everybody sees and what’s the name? Starmer and all that kind of stuff. Should I even buy armor? There’s all those questions. I’ll answer those as best I can and the other questions are hey, I just got a gun or I just got a permit to carry my gun or I just got a gun and I live in a state where I can carry without a permit one of the rules of the road. What can I do and what can’t I do with that gun? So I’m going to talk about both of those in this podcast as usual that podcasts are split into two sections the first half an hour of the podcast is available on your favorite podcast player. You can listen to it just about anywhere on your way home on your way to work off. You can actually see it on YouTube and on the various distribution points for videos. We post a video version there as well. The second part of the podcast is available on patreon own life. Now before I get started, let me remind you that you can support the podcast if you’d like by simply shopping using our Amazon link. All you have to do is go to our website at gun guy. TV off. And whenever you shop Amazon click on the banner on the top of our website even easier you can go to gun guy TV and you can look at that Amazon Banner at the top of our website click on it, It will take you to Amazon through our Amazon affiliate account. Then if you bookmark that Amazon page and just returned to that bookmark every time you shop Amazon will get paid and it’s Joshua absolutely nothing. You can pick Amazon’s pocket and help provide some funds to keep gun guy TV alive. All right, let’s get started since I have a feeling that the concealed-carry questions are probably the most prominent. Let’s deal with those first and then I’ll talk about the armor stuff afterwards. So before I even get started because I’m going to tell you some things that you’re not going to like. Let me make sure you understand what my opinions are. My opinions are not the law first of all and my opinions are not going to be agreed with by most municipalities wage. Or most penal codes are most states in the union and certainly not by the state. I live in in California. So these are just my opinions. I’m going to share those with you in just a second. But let me also let you know that I’m not an attorney. So I’m not an expert in Firearms law. I certainly don’t know the laws of all 50 states and I’m not even an expert on Firearms law in the state of California. I am a Firearms instructor and I have taught concealed carry licensing courses for more than my own state were two or three different states have also taught courses for the issuing of firearms permit the security guards in the state of California for quite some time. So I do know some of the stuff pretty well, however, when I’m going to share with you is less about the law and more about common sense, but before I do that so that I can affect people getting angry with me and thinking that what I’m telling you about the law is actually my opinion. Let me tell you what my opinion is in my humble opinion the Second Amendment is your permit you dead. Need a permit from anyone you shouldn’t have to ask or beg or pay a government agency to be able to exercise a constitutionally-protected. Right? If you want to carry a gun you should be able to do that. Now how long you have to live in a cave if you think that the law agrees with that and everywhere because it doesn’t some states are like that. Some are not likewise. It is my opinion that if you are a criminal you are in the commission of a crime and you get yourself hurt or killed during the commission of a crime that’s on you. That’s your problem. That’s not the problem of the person who defended themselves who shot. You said you ran you over with a car or whatever. Let me give you some examples that would really fit in today’s world. If you are a riot or looter at what the mainstream media wants to call a peaceful protest and during that rioting and looting you get shot by a store owner or a homeowner or somebody who happens to be on the street that you attack and you are seriously injured or you die that song Entirely on you. 00:05:01 – 00:10:12 You should have made better choices in your life and not been rioting and looting. So that that’s my opinion and if that happens to you as a result of you committing those crimes you should not if you survive you should not be able to sue the individual whose shots you stabbed you or hit you in a vehicle or bumped you in the head? Likewise if you dye your family should not be able to shoo that person for wrongful death because you were killed during the commission of a crime. That’s my opinion. Now, that’s not the way the law works and most places. So I let you know that’s my opinion. Let me give you another example if you are a riot or looter or whatever and you are stopping vehicles in the middle of the highway or in the middle of the street and then attacking those vehicles with the occupant inside and you get shot by the occupant through the window or you get run over and crushed by the vehicle. That is entirely your fault. That is your issue. You should not have been attacking this person or their vehicle while they were inside of it. That’s the natural consequences of that or at least some of the natural consequences of that is that you might just get yourself wrong in a squished by a vehicle if that happens to you that’s on you. You should not be able to sue the individuals driving the car. You should not be able to complain about what you can complain all you want to but the the individual I’m in the car should not be prosecuted or held an account in any way because you were hurt while you were committing a violent crime. So again, this is not the way the law works. But that’s just my personal opinion in my humble opinion. If you are injured during the commission of a crime that injury whether it results in your death or not is entirely on you and you should not be able to receive any compensation the person who injured you or the place where you were injured if you’re trying to burglarize a building and you’re climbing up on the second floor and you fall and hurt yourself that’s entirely off you you cannot sue the building owner for that. That’s my opinion. Now in reality. Just let you know we’ve gone into the world of opinion here. You’re on your Bible. You can look it up. It’s under First Choice second opinions. You won’t find it. That’s that’s my opinion right on a first and second opinions, right, but it doesn’t fit the law in most places. So be aware of the fact that while log Can ban D those opinions around and I hear these things from people all the time and they’ll complain that the law doesn’t match their view of the world and how it should function nevertheless. You’re going to be held accountable to the law not to the opinion of Joel not to the opinion of the gun guy and not to your own opinion or the opinion of somebody on YouTube or social media or in a podcast. You’re going to be held to the law and this is where people get sideways on this stuff and that’s what I want to try to help you with now, I can’t tell you what the laws are wage in every state but if you simply think through it and use common sense, you’re going to save yourself an awful lot of headaches and an awful lot of legal trouble. So with that having been said and now that you know what my personal opinions are here’s the way this works and here’s some suggestions I would make to you if you are a new gun owner or you’re carrying a gun or even if you’re an experienced wage. Gun owner and you just don’t know this stuff first and foremost. I want to remind you that under the law in most places. If not, all of them. You cannot defend property with deadly force. You can only defend human life with deadly force of somebody’s breaking into your truck. You can’t go shoot, um while he was breaking into my truck. Yep. Well, that’s why you have insurance now again back to my opinion in my opinion if somebody is stealing your truck and they get hurt that’s on them, but that’s not how the law works. You can defend property with a gun and where this becomes a big problem is when looters are burning down stores. You cannot defend the store off by shooting the lunar in most places certainly not in the state of California. And the reason for that is you are defending property not human life and then some people get themselves in trouble with that I can log See the red rising up from your caller up to your head and the steam coming out of your ears because these people who do these kinds of things are robbing others of their livelihood off during their life savings destroying a business. They maybe had for Generations, they’re destroying lives, but you can’t defend that. Well, you can but you cannot defend not deadly force unless you are facing a threat of deadly violence Most states will Define that as a threat which Rises to the level of death or serious or great bodily harm. That means hospitalization. You’re going to get hurt so badly that you’re going to end up in a hospital or you’re going to be dead and if you can articulate that that’s just kind of threat you were facing and that’s what you believed at that moment. 00:10:12 – 00:15:17 Then yeah, you can use deadly force absent at know, you can’t now that may be different in some States or other. I don’t know. Yep. Far as I know that’s pretty much Universal across the United States where it really begins to make people angry and it makes me angry is when it starts becoming a political type of thing. It’s a political event took the local leaders of a city or a county or a state will allow rioters and looters to destroy businesses destroy properties and then not prosecute them. However, if the business owners and Property Owners defend their property, they will prosecute them. That’s the example of the McCluskey’s are murkowski’s or whatever from st. Louis I think is where they’re from the people who broke through the gate and were threatening their lives and threatening to destroy their home. We’re pretty much left untouched but they want to prosecute the homeowners for standing out in front bumper and willing to defend themselves and their their home which in my humble opinion, we’re back to my opinion again first and second opinions. They’re in my opinion. They have every legal right to wage. But I don’t know that they have that legal right in that state and that’s why they’re being prosecuted. So it is important for you to understand that if you try to defend property with deadly crash course, you may find yourself sitting in jail for a very long time. It doesn’t sound fair and that’s because it isn’t but nevertheless it is the way the world works and we have to deal with reality of that. Now I’m going to talk some more about the other aspects that you need to be aware of in just a minute since we’re on the subject of guns and defending ourselves. Let me remind you that you may find yourself not only in criminal but in civil court, if you ever have to defend yourself with a firearm or any other deadly weapon try urge you to have some coverage to pay for the legal battle afterwards and also bail you out of jail and the other things that you’re going to need. Otherwise you find yourself the victim of circumstance and you’re trying to get money from GoFundMe orrell. Your friends or whatever worse yet. Perhaps, you’re dependent upon a public defender. I call them public plea bargain hers because they really don’t defend anyone. So I urge you to check out some coverage for that package, which I use I have two companies. I use CCW safe is one and the second call defense is the other now. I want you to know that neither one of those companies provides me anything for free month and I signed up with both companies long before I had any business relationship with them at this point. I do have an affiliate relationship with both of those companies. So I want to be upfront about wage if you were to use our link and purchase a membership with CCW safe or second call defense. We will get paid here at gun guy TV for your having done that it won’t cost you anything would do have an affiliate relationship and I want to make sure I’m being real with that that shed I do urge you to check out those companies and the best way to do it would be to go to our website at gun guy TV, you’ll If you scroll down you’ll find banner ads for both CCW safe and second call defense and that will take you to those websites through our affiliate links. So if you do decide to use one of those companies will actually get credit it helps us keep gun guy TV going and I certainly do appreciate that. So check out CCW safe and second call defense this podcast needs your life. Send your entire wallet to the gun guy. 1313 Mockingbird Lane Transylvania now back to what we were talking about before. I want to remind you that under almost every States laws it maybe every state. I don’t know. I haven’t checked that everyone I’ve ever checked. You cannot defend property with deadly force. You can only defend human life either your own life or the life of another person and you can only defend that life if it is facing a threat a credible real in-your-face shamim. A threat right now of death or serious bodily harm in other words. Somebody can threaten you and say I’m I’m going to hunt you down and kill you next week and you cannot shoot that person because that’s wrong is not immediate. It’s not right now. It may be in a week but it isn’t right now right now, what you can do is call the cops and say hey that guy threatened to kill me next week and that’s really all you can do about it. But if the truck is in your face right now and it’s a threat of death or great bodily harm, then you can use deadly force to repel that or defeat it. Now. Keep in mind if you’re defending a third person typically in order to defend that other person then that person needs to have had that right at that moment to use deadly force to defend themselves against other words the threat against that person needs to have risen to that same level either death or serious bodily harm. 00:15:17 – 00:20:00 So you have to ask yourself would that person if they had a gun be able to defend themselves legally and if they can then you can defend them hope that makes a little bit more sense. This is where a lot of people get in trouble. They’re defending property and that’s just not a good thing use your insurance coverage to defend your property. I will tell you an example if I’m looking out the window of my house and somebody is breaking my truck. I’m not going to go out and confront that person because if I do then there could be a confrontation and I end up shooting that individual. You said I’m going to call the police and hope they get here in time. And if they don’t that’s why I have insurance now, that sounds terrible. You’d like to go out there and deal with it because you like your truck or you like your car you like your boat or whatever it is. You don’t and you’re you feel violated that this person is breaking into this or that I totally understand and I’m with you a hundred percent, but I’m just sharing with you that my opinion is you should be able to go out and stop that individual but my opinion does not count. We don’t live in the land of job. Opinion we live in the land of how the laws work check your local laws and make sure but I almost bet you that you cannot defend property with deadly force. Now. Here’s another area where people get in trouble a lot. Here’s a rule for you a firearm is not a passport to go places that you would otherwise not go if you didn’t have a firearm now, sometimes we have to do that because we’re police officers security officer or our business or work or whatever takes us into dangerous areas. And that’s why we had a firearm because we have an obligation to go if you’re a person who if you’re a contractor or something and you do a lot of work in tough neighborhoods, and yeah, you’ve got your gun with you maybe in your truck or whatever maybe on you because you’re in a tough neighborhood. That’s a reason to go there beyond the fact that you just decided to go and you wouldn’t have gone if you didn’t have the gun, but I’m going to go anyway, for example, I’m just going to again I’m giving you birth. The rules of the road for me and you apply them the way you want to apply them but I can tell you that a firearm is not a passport for you to go do things or go places you wouldn’t go without a permit. So I ask myself as a law-abiding citizen. I’d like to go so and so and do such and such and I say to myself. Okay would I do that if I wasn’t carrying a gun off if the answer is no that I will not go and here’s an example. I don’t personally go to rallies political rallies now, I don’t go for a couple of reasons one is I’m not a people person so I don’t like it’s not that I don’t like people. I just don’t like people at large volume. So I’d rather watch the ball game on the television than go to the stadium with fifty thousand people in a drives me nuts. I don’t like to begin crowds. I was raised in a rural area where had a lot of space. So when we go out to Arizona too soft good property we bought and we’re twenty Thirty miles from anybody. I’m perfectly at home out there. Even if I’m all by my dog. Self so that’s just part of my nature. I don’t like to be in crowds. It’s it bothers me. So I won’t go to political rallies for that reason. The other reason I won’t go is because lately they’ve become violent in many cases and I’m carrying a gun. Well, I don’t want to bring a gun into an environment like that because that increases the likelihood that I might have to shoot somebody and I don’t want to shoot anybody down to shoot anybody because I don’t want to shoot anybody don’t want to injure someone else but I also don’t want to shoot anybody because I don’t want the aftermath in my life that destroys my life after I have done it even though everything I did was right because the question is going to be asked in court. Did you know did you did your client know that this was dangerous? And if your client knew that was dangerous and why did he go? So I want to remind you he’s a firearm and if you’re in a place where you have to have a permit your permit is not a passport to go to things you otherwise would not go to if yo, Didn’t have the gun. So ask yourself. I carry a gun all the time. I’ve carried a gun for forty years I ask myself if I didn’t have the gun what I go to that and if the answer is no, I don’t go because I’m not going to go without the gun particularly if it’s a place I wouldn’t go unless I had one and I’m not going to go with the gun because I’m walking into an area where I know I could be walking into Harm’s Way and it’s not worth it. There’s no reason for me to do that now. Like I said, if there’s some other driving reason for me to go I have to go for work or I’m going because I’m going to go with my son or what am I took courage to help keep them safe because they have to go for work or something along those lines then yeah. I might go, you know, I’ll go do that. I’m going to keep them safe. 00:20:00 – 00:25:03 Keep myself safe if that’s what I have to do. But absent some wage driving force reason like that. I just won’t go I’ll do something else. So remember that just because you have a gun does it mean you need to go some place where you might have to use it off? That’s where I think people like Kyle Rittenhouse got themselves sideways and I’m not picking on Kyle Rittenhouse. I think what he did was exactly appropriate. I think he did a marvelous job of defending himself, but you gotta ask yourself. Why was he there? Well, he was there with his buddies to help defend a business or some businesses and business people that he knew what she defending property and then he’s got a gun. He takes it to a public protest which have been now historically violent and he brings a rifle to it. And now the chances of him having to defend himself with that rifle are sharply increased and as a result that song ends up what he did he had two and he defended himself admirably I agree but had he made better choices. He would not now be sitting in jail. He would be home. Now. I want to reiterate that. You may not agree with the things I’m saying to you. I understand truthfully. I don’t agree with the way it is either but it is the way it is and we have to function within the real world. I don’t like it off. But it is what it is. As far as I’m concerned. I stand fully in support of a malicious showing up to defend business owners and businesses, but I’m going to tell you the way the law reads and the way that it’s going to be applied most of the time in many many places. That’s a very unwise thing to do because it can land you in jail or prison for a very very very long long time. Should it be that way in my opinion know but it is and that’s what we have to address now if we don’t like that and I don’t I think that’s where we were together to change those laws and to change the politics because often times no matter how much we’d like to say, it doesn’t happen politics interferes with this stuff and we’ve seen that off for months where the black lives matter and antifa protest have been concerned and all these other things and even in case of Kyle Rittenhouse the kids being prosecuted because of politics and birth Because of politics and that much is obvious. So be aware of the fact that that could be you, you know, I see that happen to people and I think to myself there but for the grace of God go I you know, I’ve gotta make better decisions because I have a wife and I have a family and I have things I need to pay for and support and I’m getting to be an old man. I don’t want to be sued or prosecuted into Oblivion and I certainly don’t want to put myself in jail for the rest of my life. So would I go to a protest like that? No, I told you one reason is that I like groups, but the other is I’m not going to go to that because I know there’s a very good chance. I might have found shoot somebody I don’t want to do that. That’s the thinking process. I’m going to suggest you use the gun is not a passport to go do things you otherwise wouldn’t do if you didn’t have a gun now, we’ll talk about some other aspects of this in a moment very quickly. I want to remind you that the rest of this podcast is actually on patreon. So the first half hour is dead. Ritu everybody the second half hour is on patreon for patreon patrons only that’s an addition to the video podcast that I do twice a month. I think there’s 66 or 67 those episodes are on there as well and a whole lot of exclusive videos. I did one today and posts on things that are behind the scenes all those things appear on patreon for patreon subscribers only that’s another way that you can support the podcast and support gun Guide TV by joining us on patreon. You can find the link in the description or you can go to our website at gun guy. TV off and look for the patreon link shooting straight and always right on target. This is the gun guy TV podcast. You know, obviously there’s not enough time in a half an hour podcast for me to go through every aspect of concealed carry or open carry or personal protection. I just can’t go through it all for you. There’s not enough time. So I will leave you with this last thought and that is that a firearm like a a knife or any other tool defend yourself as a personal protection weapon and I call it a personal protection weapon because the reason I’m carrying that weapon is to protect myself wage and those I love I’m not carrying that weapon to defend the world or protect the whole world. Now, that’s not to say that if somebody’s being hurt in front of me that I’m not necessarily going to impact. However, it is not the reason I carry the gun by contrast if I were a police officer and I saw somebody being hurt I’m obligated to dive in there and help if off. 00:25:03 – 00:30:14 A police officer and I’m at the mall when somebody starts shooting up the mall. I’m obligated to try to go get that shooter obligated to step in there and work and do something. However, if I’m not if I’m just carrying a gun to defend myself my wife and my kids that I’m obligated to defend myself and if my family’s with me to defend my family and get them out of Dodge, that’s my first priority. So I wrote an article about this. I’ll refer you to and we’ll put a link in the description. You’ll also just find it on gun guy TV, but I wrote an article called are you a sheep dog? And I found two sheeps wolves and porcupines in that particular article. I don’t talk about sheep dogs because sheep dogs in my mind are professionals. I’ve been a professional sheepdog. Look at professional Sheepdogs, you’re talking about the United States military. What do they do? They defend the nation? So they’re The Sheepdogs. They’re sheep are the United States citizens and the people who are log. Living in the United States and US citizens wherever they happen to be and that’s what the military does they kill people and break things and defend the country other professional Sheepdogs are police officers and law officer. Sheep are the people that fall within the jurisdiction of that officers. So for example in the city of Chula Vista the sheep that the Chula Vista Police Department is there to protect serve would be the people in the city of Chula Vista and you kind of get the idea. I mean a security guard for example an armed security guard or somebody doing executive protection or sheep are the people are protecting with an exact you Tavor a family or whatever. You have an armed security guard working at a facility. The Sheep are the people who work at the facility the employees there. Outside of that that guards got no responsibility all well as a law-abiding citizen my sheep are my wife and my children and my family that shoe I protect those are the primary people that I protect and God help you if you try to hurt them because I will protect them and you should to protect your your sheep. Now if I don’t happen to be with them, I’m by myself. I’m not a sheep dog at all. I’m a porcupine. Now. The thing I like about porcupines is porcupines pretty much mind their own business or just looking to get something to eat today and they’re kind of slow and plodding. That’s me as I get older and they just sort of go along their way. They don’t bother anybody there unassuming and they don’t want to any trouble they’re not they’re just off looking foraging around for food to make their lives and get through their daily routine. Whatever that is and they want to do that and be unmolested. However, if you decide to molest a porcupine you’re liable to get stuck and if you don’t think that Predators have made that mistake, all you have to do is go online and look up references to dogs or Wolves or lions or bears being stuck with porcupine quills. Well, that’s me. I’m a porcupine. I carry a gun. I carry a knife I would go about my day. I mind my own business. I’m just going about my business each day. I want to do that. I’m kind to everyone. I’m polite to everyone. I want to be unmolested. Leave me alone or you might get shot down you might get stuck. That’s what I view myself as when I’m not with my family now if I’m with my family, I’m not a porcupine anymore. I’m a sheep dog. That’s the difference. And so if you’re not a professional sheepdog don’t act like you are keep your priorities straight. That doesn’t mean that you can’t step up and help if help is needed. That doesn’t mean you can’t. A criminal in the act of a crime if it’s right in front of you that doesn’t mean any of those things but it does mean that you should keep your priorities straight. My number one priority when I’m out by myself is to protect me because if I don’t protect me that I can’t be there to protect my family. So while I will help I’m not going to put myself in a position where I can get killed because if I do now, I’m not there to take care of my family and I failed as a sheep dog and the only little sheep dog roll. I’ve got when I’m with my family. My number one priority is the safety of my fam. My personal safety comes after that and everybody else is safety comes even further down the line after that. My job is to protect my wife and my family and my friends up there with me and get them out of Dodge if I get injured or killed in the process, but I succeed in doing that then so be it. I’m happy as a clam. However, I’m not going to abandon my family to go out and face some danger to protect the public. That’s not my job and in doing so I have now taking my attention away from my family. So these are just some Concepts to think about if you’re carrying a gun around or if you’ve got one for home defense think through it understand what you can do what you can’t do legally that’s an exercise and maybe taking some courses in your local area and learning about what is legally allowed and what isn’t wherever you are. 00:30:14 – 00:32:33 Each state is different than the city is different. You’re going to have to figure that out on your own. I don’t know where you are. I know what it is where I live because I teach the course for the San Diego County Sheriff’s department. So I understand what I can do and what I can’t do much California and I’ve sat through many illegal seminar about it, but outside of California, I don’t know I simply apply California’s rules to everywhere because I know California is more strict than everywhere else than I am. I’m in Texas. I’m probably good if I just follow California’s rules that seems to work out. However, your area is going to be different. So you got to do your own research and then you’ve got to understand the mindset and ask yourself. Why do I have the gun? Why do I have it? And if the answer is to defend yourself and those you love em to sit down and make that priority list and decide ahead of him. When will you act to help the public? And when will you not and under what circumstances is it more important for you to make sure that you are safe so that you’re there for your family or that your family is safe before you act to help someone who isn’t a part of that group now, like I said, I knew I was going to say things that are going to rankle page and make people mad. I’m just explaining to you the reality of the way life works. So it makes you mad I get it. Sometimes it makes me mad too. Well, thank you very much for listening. I think I’ve gained Up. I’ve actually got a little long in this part of the podcast. I’m going to move on to the next part. We’re going to talk about armor and whether civilians should have it or not. I think they should and exactly how do you use armor you use armor. When is it applicable? And what’s a good plan for your family wear armor is concerned. I’m wearing a lot of armor in my life. I can tell you it’s heavy. It’s hot and it’s a pain in the butt. So you really have to walk through it before you launch into applying a desire to have armor all the time or certain kinds of armor. It’s something you want to think through. We’re going to talk more about that in just a minute. So if you’re on patreon stick with me, if you’re listening to the publicly-available podcast, thank you very much for your time. Thank you very much for your support. Have a wonderful week and wherever you go, whatever you do stay safe choice. You’ve been listening to the gun guy TV podcast.

There have been a number of positive changes for concealed carry permits in California. Things appear to be trending in the right direction.

Episode 80 00:00:01 – 00:05:02 Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition. It’s time for the Gun Guy TV podcast. This Joel Persinger? I’m the Gun Guy Thank you very much for of your support of Gun Guy TV and certainly you’re supportive me I’m really grateful. I can’t tell you how grateful I am because it’s been kinda crazy recently as we prepare for the memorial of my stepfather, he passed away rather suddenly very few weeks back of a massive heart attack and we’ve been busily trying to get ready for his memorial ever since I’ll talk about that ever. So slightly here, just a little bit and kind of give you an idea of the progress. In case you’ve been following me on on or if you’ve. Followed a little bit on twitter or something as I’ve mentioned that I’ll I’ll bring you up to speed but I won’t spend the entire time of the podcast talking about that as you may or may not know this podcast comes in two parts. There’s the first half an hour which is free and you can listen to it free of charge on your favorite podcast player. It also appears in video form on Youtube and the other video outlets. Now, the video form just has a thumbnail there’s no video. This is an audio podcast lot of folks listen to. It on the way home or work or whatever the second half, which is thirty minutes is available on Patriots only and it’s meant as a thank you from my Patriot supporters. So if you WANNA hear the second half, you have to be a subscriber member on patriotic put a link in the description. In case you’d like to do that. Now the first half of the podcast I’m going to talk about a couple of things not least of which is the changes I’m seeing a and their positive changes I gotTa tell you in in California because I live in. San Diego County California in the California concealed weapons permit structure or maybe not so much structure, but the way in which share of because California is set up so that sheriff’s issue permits the way in which sheriffs are changing. The way that they issue permits how many permits they issue the types of things you can do that permit and basically making it easier for California’s citizens to obtain concealed carry permits that are valid throughout the states. We’ll talk about that in the first part of the podcast in the second part of the podcast I want to address. A case that happened and was argued before the night circuit and then an on bonk panel called. Young Verses Hawaii. Now haven’t talked about that much such. It happened in large part because I’ve been so wrapped up with other things and partially because Chuck Michele from CRP, a the California rifle and Pistol Association and from Michelle Associates was gonna come on and talk about that with me. But in retrospect he wants to actually open it up and talk about a broader subject. So I’ll talk about it a little bit just what I know about it in my opinion. Over whatever it’s worth. Obviously I’m not an attorney my opinion for whatever it’s worth. We’ll talk about that in the second part of the podcast because I do have some very strong opinions as to the strength skill and effectiveness if any and I don’t think there was a lot on the part of the attorney who argued the case for Mr Young So I also Lincoln the description to the actual oral argument case, you’d like to watch the painful argument and put yourself through the the torture of watching that yourself but that’ll be in the second part of the podcast available only on Patriot.

So please do use our Amazon link on Amazon or in. Case. You are unfamiliar with how the State of California issues concealed carry permits. I’M GONNA explain that briefly she understand what I’m talking about. In case you’re not in the state of California and before I get started before all the hate mail arrives which it tends to do. Let me let me clarify something I am of the opinion that the Second Amendment is your permit. 00:05:02 – 00:10:02 The Second Amendment right is for you to keep and bear arms that is a natural right a god given, right that is a right that you have any way and all the second amendment does is codify that and protected and guarantee it in our bill of rights in our United States Constitution. So, the fact that that is protected is all you need in order to carry a firearm to bear arms or keep arms as a law abiding person in the United States whether you’re a citizen or a lawfully admitted alien doesn’t matter. That’s your right in this country and it’s protected by our constitution unfortunately. The courts and the government have usurped a lot of the authority of that right and so as a result in some places like California, you cannot carry a firearm unless you have a permit issued by the government to do so I think that’s ridiculous. There’s no reason for you to have to genuflect before some government authority and and certainly no reason for you to have to pay them a fee. To exercise a constitutionally protected right, and my hope is that one day we will stuff the second amendment down the throats of these government agencies and force them to abide by it and get out of the way of our constitutionally protected second amendment. Right but in the meantime. Sometimes. We have to be happy for Incremental Progress I’ve lived in California the vast majority of my life since I was a little kid. And so I can tell you that a lot of the rights that we no longer have in the state of California we lost incrementally we lost because we weren’t paying attention and the California government strip those rights from us a little bit at a time just a bite at a time like the old saying goes how do you eat an elephant? You do at one bite at a time well unfortunately and Writes back. We’re probably going to have to eat the elephant the same way and get those rights back one bite at a time. So I am thrilled whenever we make even the smallest amount of progress in the right way. The right direction because we’re cautiously in a position where we feel like we’re losing more. and. We’re not gaining anything I want to encourage you and let you know that we’re gaining a little bit in certain areas and in other areas where we have active court cases regaining even more now that may not be the case with the young versus Hawaii case we’ll explain why when we get to the second half of the podcast I’ll explain why that’s my opinion. But let me talk first about California concealed carry and I’ll give you a little bit of history here. I’ve had a permit issued by the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department since Nineteen Ninety I think because my permit was first issued undersheriff Roach. He was our sheriff for one term only, which is very, very rare was sheriff generally there they stay in office until they don’t want to be there anymore it’s very hard to unseat a sitting sheriff it happens but not with regularity and sheriff generally don’t serve only. One term but in share roaches case he did, and during his first term I applied for a permit and received a permit from the San. Diego County Sheriff’s department which was valid throughout the entire state and I pretty much had a permit in California ever since I took a brief break for a couple of two or three years when I didn’t have one and I went back and got when again. Here’s how permits work in the State of California they are issued by your local law enforcement authority and the vast majority of the time that’s the sheriff of Given County sometimes, police chiefs, issue them, but very seldom most times they let the sheriff do that, and then they’ll point you to the sheriff’s department if you want permit. You have to live in the county in which you apply. So they don’t offer permits to anyone who doesn’t live within their jurisdiction within their county. So if you live in La County, you have to apply with Los Angeles. Sheriff’s Department if you live in San. Diego County as I do you apply with the San Diego County Sheriff’s department and so on, and there are fifty eight counties in the state of California. Right now the vast majority of the counties in the State of California, issue concealed carry permits. Some issue very very few or none. Los Angeles would be one of them certainly another one of them would be up in the San Francisco area. I, think Santa Cruz is one and so on but they’re they’re actually few and far between most of the I think about fifty four of the fifty eight counties right around the. Issue, pretty regularly, and then each sheriff gets to decide what the criteria for receiving a permit is and the reason for that is that the law says that a local law enforcement authority may issue a permit to a person who is twenty one years of age or older lives within their jurisdiction is not a prohibited person at prohibited to have a firearm and condemn straight good cause for the issuance of the permit. Now, this is where good cause these types of good ’cause requirements and may issue things really go sideways. Many states are shall issue in other words. 00:10:02 – 00:15:14 If you meet them basic requirements, you’re old enough and you’re a lawful resident of that state and you’re not a prohibited person than they shall issue a permit. Some of them have some training requirements, some of them don’t. and. The training requirements change in California it is may issue in other words the sheriff can say well, I’m going to issue these or I’m not and be within the law. They don’t have to issue permits by law they may if they wish and then the sheriff individual sheriff gets to decide what in that sheriff’s mind constitutes good cause because the state law does not define the term good cause and say good causes is equivalent to x y Z. it’s up for the sheriff to decide what good cause is now traditionally many of the sheriffs have defined good cause as well. You’re a friend of mine you’re a family member you’re a wealthy person in my county who’s contributed to my campaign or whatever the case might be and very recently one of the sheriffs in the state of California found themselves on the wrong side of the law by going about this. Well, you contribute to my campaigns while issue a permit thing, and if you WanNa know more about that, I’ll put a link of the description she can read about the progress of that case, but it looks like at. least some people in that sheriff’s department may be going to jail for doing that because that is actually illegal nevertheless illegal or not. They’ve been doing it for a long long long long time, and so at one time, it was very difficult to get a permit in San. Diego. For example, it was very difficult to get a permit unless you make contributions to the sheriff’s campaign or you are a family member of the sheriff or a friend of the sheriff or you were a member of the San Diego. County. Honorary Sheriff’s Deputies Association. because. In order to become a member of the association had to contribute a certain amount of money. Those guys very easily got permits. Well, this is all totally illegal and unconstitutional, but it’s nevertheless what’s happened in this state. I would label that and call that corruption. You can call it whatever you want but I’m going to call it what it is and I’m going to call it corruption now in many cases and certainly in the state of California among the fifty eight counties Sandiego being one that has changed a lot and I’m going to. Tell you more about how that’s changed and the positive things that are happening about permits and with permits in San Diego County in a minute. One of my favourite gun stores is spread sports in Yuma Arizona they are my favorite for a few reasons first and foremost, it’s just a terrific store is sort of a a little mini bass pro shop and as my wife can tell you, my son can tell you if I get in the bass pro shop, you’ll never get me out and one of the problems with walking in that places. When I walk out, I’ve spent a lot more money than I intended to. Well, sprague’s is kind of like that. When you walk in that store, you feel like you’ve walked into a Disneyland if you like hunting shooting or anything about the firearms or the shooting sports so I do urge you to check out sprague’s sports in Yuma. Now, there’s another reason why I support breaks and that is that since I’m in San Diego County California if a firearms manufacturer or dealer wants to send me a gun to review, they can’t send it. Here, Ninety nine percent of the time Richard SPRAGUE. The owner of SPRAGUE’s sports has been kind enough for the last couple of years to allow manufacturers to send those guns to sprague’s I can drive out to Yuma, and while I’m there, I can review the gone. I can go on the SPRAGUE sports indoor range on I can spend some time firing that particular gun and and really getting to know it shooting some great video and I can actually produce the video and produce a review of firearms that I cannot get in the state of. California and the only way I can do that is through an NFL and Free State and that’s spread sports. So I, urge you to support spread sports. No, they’re not paying me to tell you this I’m just incredibly grateful for all of the support they’ve given to me and to gun, Guy TV, and frankly I really liked the store. So check out spread sports in Yuma. If you happen to be going down highway eight and passing through Huma, make sure you stop Ed Spriggs Sports, I’ll put a link to their website in the description. The opinions expressed by the. Always right unless they’re all. The let’s get back to the concealed carry history. I’ll try to make it a little bit more grief of California. First of all permits were very difficult to get particularly in major metropolitan areas I know in San Diego County when you would go down and apply for a permit. The Licensing Division of the sheriff’s department would go out of their way to try to convince you. Not to continue with your application to discourage you from working toward getting permit to make it as difficult as humanly possible for you to get that permit and then when you got to permit particularly under our current share, he would limit the tar out of it so that you can only do certain things with him. 00:15:14 – 00:20:10 He would put things on it like Oh for business purposes only. Are Only while going to the bank on Thursday afternoon between one and five or something like that. You know at. So you couldn’t take the gun with you all the time everywhere because he would limit it so that even when you got to permit most time, it was fairly useless. He would only issue at to business owners and for only for business purposes or he would. Only issue at if you if you weren’t a business owner or you weren’t somebody that he knew or a family member or a famous person or whatever you had to demonstrate that you’d had some real threat to your life that you’d had multiple threats that there were restraining orders out on that person that that person looked like they might harm you. It was almost as if you. Had to be in the hospital having been almost killed before he would issue you a permit to defend yourself against being almost killed. It was that ridiculous in fact, I have an employee who’s a really good guy. I wanted to make sure he had a permit for work as we were teaching classes that Kinda stuff and so I sent him with a letter from me for. Mike, from my company saying we needed him to have a permit and this was the reason why now he lives or actually doesn’t anymore he did live up in fallbrook which was north almost the extreme north. San Diego County almost to Riverside County and the sheriff’s department. I had the tell him I said Steve Look I understand that they’re gonNA try to talk you out of it. And they’re gonNA make difficult for you, and so they’re going to try to frustrate you and make you mad and if you come in and express any kind of anger upset in their presence are GonNa say oh well, you don’t have the temperament to have her minute and that’s going to be the end of your application. So if you get upset or mad in the car. On the way there on the way home or whatever safety itself from the inside Your House. But just be aware of the fact that that’s a tactic they’re gonNA try to make you mad or they’re gonNA, pass you and see if they can get you to give up now he didn’t quite believe me but certainly what they did is they they would call him and they’d say. Well, actually, we need this one document. Can You bring that to us? Well, he’d say we’ll kind of facts it to you can email it to you know we need an original copy can you bring that to us and so he would have to drive for an hour and change from his house in fallbrook through the traffic all the way down to the sheriff’s department lashing division to drop off this one document. And then three, four, five days later, they’d say, Oh, by the way we do need another document and this is what they did to him. One document at a time they made him drive that distance each and every time over about five or six or seven document. They knew what they needed. They knew what they needed ahead of time they could have said we need this list of documents would you bring them all in but they didn’t the tactic was to make it as tough on him as humanly possible he called me. A couple of times on his way they’re just absolutely beside himself furious I’d say well, talk to me about it. Let it go now because when you get there, you need to be polite respectful and so on. You know and he did actually get a permit it’s been many years. Now every couple of years he renuzit and I have to sign that he works here and then he still needs to permit that kind of stuff and he goes down and gets a permit but this is the kind of nonsense tactics used to take. In the sheriff’s department in San Diego County and many departments like the Los Angeles Sheriff’s department were so bad that you didn’t have the chance of the whirlwind of getting a permit I don’t care how dangerous your life was or what kind of danger you were facing. Well enter Ed Peruta. Ed Peruta sued the San Diego County Sheriff’s department and it went all the way to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Now he won, and then he lost and then you want in the lost I mean it went on for awhile. It never made it to the Supreme Court because the Supreme Court refused to hear it, which was very unfortunate because he actually won if memory serves me correctly with a three judge panel in the ninety ninth circuit, and then it went to on panel and he lost he appealed to the Supreme Court but the Supreme Court decided not to hear it much to the Chagrin of Clarence Thomas. If memory serves me correctly, he was quite upset about that. He wanted to hear the case. Nevertheless. It costs the sheriff’s department in San Diego. So stinking much money. That they finally just acquiesced when Peruta one, the first Simon the ninth circuit of the three judge panel said we’re GonNa do whatever the law says that’s fine. We’re GONNA follow that. And while this whole process was going on other sheriffs, departments in the state were watching that and seeing that the San Diego County, Sheriff’s department was haemorrhaging so much money for this Court fight that they actually started reevaluating their issuing policy most notably the Orange County sheriff’s department under Sheriff Hodgson’s at the time actually started issuing they kinda did so like sticking your toe in the pool to see if the water’s cold a little bit at a time, but then it became a very. 00:20:10 – 00:25:03 Open county that while it can’t call themselves shall issue technically because the law says the sheriff may issue for all practical purposes. They pretty much are shall issue if you’re a resident of Orange County and you are a lawfully permitted personnel, which you’re not a person who can’t have a gun, you’re not a prohibited person and you’re over the age of twenty one and you would like permits very easy to get one in orange. County, that’s been the case for quite a while now. and. What they’ve done is they’ve automated the system you can apply online. Now you don’t have to spend time after time after time showing up delivering documents like they did the Steve, a lot of things changed during that time in fact I have because I’ve had a so long I’ve noticed a tremendous change in the attitudes at the sheriff’s department in San Diego. Now, when you go down to get a permit, they will tell you when you’re trying to get a new permit they’ll tell you the clerk will just say to you you know my job is to help you to get your permit. Well that’s a one eighty. Let me tell you. They’re chow before we try to keep you get one or get you so discouraged you’d quit now lounge my job is to work with you and help you permit. The. Totally different world. So if you’re in San Diego County for example, and that’s where you live and you’ve not applied for a permit I suggest that you do so. It doesn’t cost you anything unless they decide to approve it just so that you know you don’t have to pay the money upfront. The other thing I’ve noticed too that in renewing the permits every two years you have to renew the permit and every two years it was like a cage fight to get the permit renewed they tried to discourage you a new. They’d ask you for extra stuff. They didn’t ask you for before they look at you sort of what stink I across the counter and try to make you feel uncomfortable as possible as were this puny little sort of Amoeba type thing that they were going to grant this enormous privilege Fu actually behave yourself exactly so Even though. Keeping and bearing arms is a constitutionally protected right that’s the way they treated you. It was like going into the Department of motor vehicles and walking up to the window of the person who’s had the worst morning and the worst day of their life, and now they’re taking it out on you. That was the experience you got the sheriff’s department when you went. Until Ed Peruta. Now when you go to the sheriff’s department, they’re happy to see you. They try to get you in and out as quickly as possible they get it organized for you. It’s amazing. In fact, here’s the interesting thing happened lately is that they’ve made an actual change to the physical nature of the permit and they’ve made a change to the number of guns you can actually put on the permit. We’re still stuck in that place where you have to list the actual guns you’re going to carry on your permit it used to be super limiting. Now it’s not I’m GonNa tell you more about that in just a minute while on the subject of concealed carry permits I probably should also talk about concealed carry coverage. The reason I mentioned that is because it’s no longer just concealed carry coverage for a long time a lot of those companies came out and covered you if you were carrying a firearm and if you were. Carrying it legally in a public place or maybe if you defend yourself and your house, but you had to defend yourself with a firearm I, don’t think that’s the case with any of them anymore. Now, it’s more defense coverage self-defense coverage with any legal weapon is some of the phrases I’ve heard among some of these companies. Well so that means a skillet would be illegal weapon. Of Somebody tries to attack you in your house or a kitchen knife or folding blade that you have on your legally or firearm or any other weapon whether it’s a a weapon of simply common object that you use because it happens to be available or a firearm or something you’re carrying as a defensive tool, one way or the other though I do encourage you to have some. Sort of coverage and I’ll tell you which coverage I have in just a second. But if you watch the cases of Kyle Rittenhouse for example or the mccloskey’s mccloskey’s harbor, they say that and what they did standing on their porches to to defend their house, these folks end up in Criminal Court civil court, and unless you have a lot of money, you’re begging the public for help. To It’s super important that you have some sort of financial support there for your lawyer and your legal battle whether it’s criminal or civil, those kind of things. So in an effort to try to prepare for that I, hope I never need it. I do have that kind of coverage and I’ve actually established some affiliate relationships with the companies that I use so that if you want to use them, it also benefits Gun Guy TV when you do. So let me tell you the courage I have as my plan a I have CCW safe. 00:25:03 – 00:30:02 I found their coverage to be the most comprehensive and the most complete and I really liked the way. They laid it out and what they did with it. So I have CCW SAFE as my plan A, but it’s not the only one I have because I like to have a plan B. and frankly liked to have a plan C. for when be doesn’t work if possible because what I’ve discovered is as a lot, the old military guys say around San Diego to one and one is none. So I don’t like to have just one shot at something I. WanNa, have a least two and if I can come up with three I’m have a third one while my plan. B.. Is Second call defense those are the two companies I use CCW savings. My Plan A, and if for some reason that doesn’t cover it second call defense, which will kick in and take care of it after that, and then we do have a plan C. and that is our umbrella policy from our insurance policy for our home and rental properties are business insurance and those kind of things depending on what I’m doing and where I am. We’ll also kick in to try to defend me but if you don’t have any of that, that’s fine at least get yourself at least one at least have a plan a the cover, these expenses, and if you’re going to have a plan a then I would suggest if you. CAN AFFORD IT CW safe because that is the most complete coverage I can find, and if you want something a little bit less expensive, perhaps checkout second call defense now I’ll put. Lincoln.

As I was saying about Ed Peruta changing the whole idea of concealed carry issuance in the state of California I think mostly just out of fear they sheriffs were afraid to have to blow all that money on that case after they watched what happened to the county sheriff’s department. So some of them started issuing more for lack of a better word more liberally more freely the had before and over the years that has progressed and improved and improved and improved to the point where in San Diego Right now, if you go down and apply as I said, they’ll tell you their job is to help you get permit. They never used to say that before and then they’ll kind of walk you through the process and make it a little easier for you to get a permit. I’ve seen people because the I should stop here until you I actually teach the course as one of the instructors to teach the course for the sheriff’s department on concealed carry so that people can meet that requirement and go get their permit. The. People I’ve seen come through. The course are people who are getting permits. Now, for quote, unquote good ’cause statements that never would have gotten him a permit before not even close they would have been thrown out of the Office for not having sufficient cause and yet they’re getting permits now for very simple good ’cause statements basically, the sheriff said when he was running for reelection, bring me anything. I simply want one and we’ll look at it. That means you just got to give them some reason beyond I just want it for self defense that might be I live in a kind of sketchy neighborhood or I have to drive through a rough neighborhood a lot to go to work or I. Have you know anything like that and all those things if you brought them before would never get you a permit, but they they seem to work. Now now I was contacted by the Sheriff’s Department as an instructor to be told that they are moving to an online. System called permit him. That’s the name of the system. It’s the same system owned by a not owned by but used by the Orange County sheriff’s department at a lot of the sheriffs in the state are moving to that it’s quite a process to get it installed and move into that online system from what they’ve been doing for years. So they’re not quite there yet but a little bit at a time they’re moving that direction. So when you go get a permit now from the sheriff’s Department, I just updated mine. You get a plastic card that actually looks like a professional permit. However, sunset plastic card is not yet been approved by the California Department. Of Justice, you also get a paper permit. You can fold in half. It’s the same paper printed out permit that you’ve been getting for years. I’ve been getting these since nineteen ninety they used to laminate them now they don’t they just give you the paper one so you can fold it in half and. Stick it behind the the Plastic ID card version that they give you and you can put that in your wallet and but it’s interesting. Thing is the plastic one while it looks really professional is not really official. The paper one is go figure so you can take the paper one, leave the plastic one at home, and you’re still good but don’t do it the other way around you gotTa have the paper one with you everywhere you go. However the fact that they’re moving into the twenty first century in this application process and giving you an actual permit that actually looks like something that might be produced by the government is very positive I think that’s a great move forward. 00:30:02 – 00:35:04 Now here’s the other thing they’ve done. As long as I’ve had a permit I’ve been limited to only three firearms have been able to. Put On my permit that’s it. You GotTa pick three that’s all I mean. That’s fine for me because I- prone to wearing the same kind of stopped we live in San Diego County where we don’t have extreme weather and in the summertime, it’s kind of warm. So most of the year I’m wearing a t shirt and cargo shorts and flip flops or sneakers or something. Well, I carry a snobby revolver in my pocket most the time because it fits into the cargo shirts pocket in a in a pocket holster very comfortable to carry around I carry an extra speed loader in a little holder on my belt and a speech trip, and that’s all I have most of the time. Now, if I’m wearing blue jeans or something, I’m wearing something else when the weather gets a little cooler. Than maybe I’ll carry my Smith and Wesson M, P shield nine millimeter, and those are the two guns I carry. Most of the time I have a springfield xt subcompact forty on my permit because I could have three but I hardly ever carry it. It’s generally the snobby revolver little thirty eight to Taurus model eighty five or my Smith and Wesson MNP shield. That’s what I carry the overwhelming majority of the time. Now. What’s neat though is that the sheriff’s department has now decided that you can carry an unlimited number of firearms and you can have those listed on your permit. Now the problem is that every two years you have to go qualify with each and every one of those and I think that will end up being such painted the. That they’ll end up changing that I’ll mention what I think’s going to happen in a second or at least what I hopes going to happen as we progress into a better world where concealed carry permits are concerned in the state of California but right now you can put on as many as you want. Well, I have guns that I carry when I’m scouting for hunting and generally carry my Smith and Wesson model sixty, six, three, fifty, seven, magnum if I’m hunting. Or if I’m scouting, sometimes I’ll carry my Ruger sp one, a one, three, fifty, seven, magnum. So three inch barreled gun little bit smaller. Well, I wanted to have those on my permit and I have a couple of other ones. I have nine hundred eleven and like that I won’t carry those except in very special circumstances but the fact that I have them on my permit allows me to carry them concealed, which means I’m. Driving from California through California to the other state I’m hunting in and I have that gun in my car I don’t have to worry about having it locked up and unloaded separate from the amunition. All that other nonsense I can just stick it in the center console of the car or I can stick it in a case and put it behind the seat of my truck and it doesn’t matter because it’s on my permit. That allows me to do that. Now, what I think’s going to happen because I’m running out of time here on the first part of the podcast but here’s what I think’s going to happen i. think that what’s going to happen is people are going to do what I did. I now have seven guns listed on my permit. I have a buddy he’s got I think twelve or whatever, and people are going to start having they’re going to start complaining about having to qualify with all of these. and. Eventually, I’d be willing to bet you that the California law will change or the practice. Perhaps the sheriff’s will change if it’s within their purview to do it so that you are simply qualifying with revolver or a an auto loader auto, and if you qualify revolver carrying a revolver new qualify with a semiautomatic carry any semi auto that’s my that’s. My hope as the next logical step, I don’t know if it’s GonNa happen but that is I believe what happened in the state of Nevada and then after that people got tired of that got to the point where in Nevada and I do have an avowed a permit by the way in Nevada you qualify with anything and you carry whatever you want. But they still went through this rather logical progression of opening it up and making it freer and freer and freer and freer and freer. My hope is that even if we have to get it incrementally eventually, what ends up happening is we just ended up constitutional carry around the country and this whole permit non Chan’s simply goes away. What my hope is, but I’ll be thrilled. I’m thrilled that I was able to add four more guns to my permit that I do use. I won’t carry them on a regular basis, but the fact that they’re on permit makes them easier to transport and if I ever want to carry one I suppose. I could. The other thing though is that I can just see the sheriff’s department becoming more open to issuing an issuing a lot more permits. San Diego. County has issued a tremendous number of permits said, Sheriff Gore, opened it up, and they are swamp. They’re so swamped they added extra staff they’ve gone they’re going to a more automated system and they can’t keep up with the demand. Well, that’s very exciting. The more people there are on the street who are honest law-abiding people who are armed. The safer, I feel. And I suggest that the safer you should feel as well. Well that’s it for this part of the podcast if you’re listening on your favorite podcasts player thank you very much for your support I really do appreciate it if you’re listening on Patriot I want you to stick with me because we’re going to get into the next part of the podcast on Patriot only. But like I said, if you’re listening to the free version on your favorite podcasts player or on Youtube or one of the video distribution centers or areas a gun streamer or shoot or place like that. Thank you very much for all of your support. Thank you very much for listening and wherever you go whatever you do be safe. 00:35:07 – 00:35:10 You’ve been listening to the Gun Guy TV podcast.

Life is Still Good! Episode 79 00:00:01 – 00:05:03 Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition. It’s time for the Gun Guy TV podcast. Shoal persinger I’m the Gun Guy, thank you very much for all of your support of Gun Guy TV and of this podcast if it weren’t for you, this podcast would end gun guide TV would end and I wouldn’t be able to get the message out that is to promote and secure and protect and expand the second amendment rights of law abiding. Americans in this podcast I’d like. To talk about some positive stuff a little bit I if you don’t mind and so I’m going to address that some I do want to remind you and certainly if this is the first time you’ve listened to the podcast lets you know that the podcast is one of our long the first half of which is free and you can listen to it on your favorite podcasts player we. Also post a video version on Youtube and all of the other video platforms including places like bit shoot, which I always have to say, carefully, Guns Streamer the Utah Gun, exchange video facebook in a host of other places you’ll be able to find the podcast all over the place, the video version actually just an audio podcast just has a video there of a thumbnail so we make A. Thumbnail for it so that it has an image to go along with it and we posted on the video places because frankly a lot of people like to consume it there other folks listen to it in their car on the way to work or whatever. So you can. You can check it out either place. All right onto some of the things that I wanted to talk about and. Again I want to get positive here a little bit. Obviously, if you’ve watched the news, you know that very recently in the state of California we had a victory and by the way that victory doesn’t just affect the state of California. Affects all of the states that fall under the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and we have until the twenty eighth before the The law actually hopefully will go into effect shortly thereafter words but my understanding is that the state of California has the opportunity to ask for an on Bach appeal or on Bach Review of the decision in the ninth circuit or to go directly to the supreme, court Nashua them to review it. And even if they don’t any judge on the ninth circuit can ask for a non vonk review but they have to do it my understanding they have to do it by the twenty eighth. Or they have to ask for an extension and get it approved before the twentieth. So we get to the twenty th that nobody’s done that. Then that ruling goes back to judge Benitez here in San Diego California and Benitez then can remove his temporary stay on his decision and the law declaring the magazine. Ban That is in California unconstitutional becomes the law of the land and it affects all of the states. In the ninth circuit. Which means that we could go back to actually buying regular normal mags instead of the neutered ones that we have to get stuck with now. So that’s very good news. Is it final yet? No, but it’s very good news want to encourage you that news I. realize there’s always chicken littles I call him chicken littles they’re the people will always find something wrong with everything. Well Yeah. But you got that victory you haven’t dealt with us when you dealt with that when you had I still. Can’t do this and I still can’t look what calm down chicken little the sky is not falling. We’re winning a little step at a time and with each victory, we should encourage one another like my Bible says, encourage one another daily as long as it’s called today. All right in piece of great news since I’m talking about good news here this to try to encourage you at the outset in Breitbart I saw trump administration makes additional two point three, million acres available for hunting and fishing. Now, among the things I love to do our hunt and fish and just enjoy the outdoors in general I love to camp and do those kinds of things. So when the government search locking up more and more acreage and says, you can’t camp here you can’t hunt here you can’t fisher I feel like my tax dollars are wasted because all this land that could be available for. People to enjoy the outdoors sports is no longer there and you’re forbidden from enjoying that land that truthfully I’m not trying to pick on one side or the other. But the truth is that these Socialists Super Progressive Democrats at the moment, which is where the Democratic Party’s going wants to lockup all of the land and essentially have you and I not be able to do anything on it. And I want to be able to things on it. So I’m very grateful for the trump administration doing what they do. The story Breitbart says Fox News reported I. Love It. Breitbart is telling us what Fox News reported but nevertheless. Fox News reported that the newly available acreage is being touted as the largest historical expansion of its kind. It represents the single largest expansion of hunting and fishing opportunities to occur throughout the history of the US fish and Wildlife Service. The new access opens up hunting and fishing opportunities at one hundred, thirty, eight national wildlife refuges and nine national fish hatcheries. That’s stink and cool anyway I just wanted to show that because it was great. 00:05:03 – 00:10:00 News, there are some really interesting and good things happening. Obviously, if you watch the mainstream news or you just look at the news every day you’re going to get depressed after a while I mean for crying out loud. You got to watch something positive once in a while otherwise, you’ll go notch show while I am going to talk about the election a little bit and some interesting things that I’ve seen sort of in the the. Back Alley News if you WANNA, call it that that doesn’t come out in front of your face at least wanted to start off with some positive things that are happening. Now I’ve got to tell you I was saying to my wife, the other day that I’m going to be. So glad when the election is over and I can stop focusing so much attention on dealing with emergencies it seems like everything lately has been an emergency. Of some sort or the threat of an emergency of some sort. Obviously, there’s the Chinese Kovin nineteen virus thing that everybody’s been dealing with him of course, in California, much of California’s still limited on what we can and cannot do and experiencing partial shutdowns where other parts of the country perhaps are not, and then of course, you’ve got the racial violence and the civil unrest going on not so much where I live we live in. County California. So we don’t have that going on here, but it is going on in other parts of the country, and then you have threats that it will be even worse than that kind of stuff. So if you’re going to be a good provider for your family or at least a wise individual, you have to give some thought to the fact that that might show up where you live and you’ve got to take some steps to prepare for it or prepare to leave if you got to do that. So then you’ve got those to deal with and if you weren’t ready now you gotta get ready. Well, that’s time money focus exercise and all that other stuff. And then of course, in California, we have the rolling blackouts because the Liberal Democratic progressive leaders of this state over a period of decades have show crippled the power grid in this state by virtue of their green new deal thinking that we don’t generate enough power to pay for our own way or to take care of our own needs, we keep having to buy power from other states. So the mindset there is that Gee we don’t WanNA. Have Nuclear Power. We don’t want to have power generated by fossil fuels we don’t want to. Do any of that because we’re California and we’re saving the planet. So what we will do is we’ll put up all kinds of windmills and solar even though it won’t do the job and it doesn’t produce enough power, and then when we don’t have enough power will buy power from other states who are generating it with nuclear power and fossil fuels and all the things we hate. But by virtue of the fact that we didn’t do it, they’re doing it. We feel so much better and we’re just so much more empowered than they. Ask. The mindset in this goofy state. So as a result, we have rolling blackouts. We had our power go out over the weekend and I have several friends who’ve power has gone out more than once. So you kind of have to prepare for that and get ready for that emergency. So I’ve spent a Lotta time and frankly we’ve spent quite a bit of money getting ready for these multiple emergency possibilities that have. been coming up ever since the beginning of the year when they discovered that folks were starting to get sick and they couldn’t figure out why and they discovered that all this stuff started at least the virus anyway in China and the rest of it I think is just trying to keep trump from getting elected and the unfortunate natural consequences of crazy wack job looney leftist rule in the state in which I live. Now in amongst all of that, the good news is that we’ve still had time to prepare. It hasn’t caught US totally off guard. We haven’t had social unrest in our neighborhood. We haven’t had people dropping like flies. It’s not like the the Co viruses like he or something and Certainly, we haven’t had the kind of economic crash that people were predicting as a result of all this I would give credit there to President Donald J, trump for keeping the economy from crashing. Certainly, it isn’t the result of the wisdom and power of the intellect and experience of governor gruesome nuisance. If anything he’s done more harm than good but all things equal we’re still working our bills are. Still getting paid, and we still have a nice place to live. We love our neighbors and we’ve had the time at least in the persinger household to get prepared for some of these other possible emergencies. So all in all I, still look outside the sun is still shining. The world is still spinning. My family is still my family. My neighbors are still great people the country by and large. There are three, hundred, twenty, seven, million people roughly in this country, and the majority of the country is actually running pretty well and the majority countries not experiencing civil unrest and majority of the people in the country, the three, hundred, and twenty, seven, million of us are not dying of. covid nineteen and a lot of us are still working still paying our bills. 00:10:00 – 00:15:08 So the world is not coming apart at the seams, even though the mainstream media and certainly the Democratic National Committee Convention would like to convince you that it is. So I wanted to start off this podcast by telling you things are not as dark as they same. There are lots of problems in the world, but you know what? It’s not as bad as it first seems, and if you’re a Christian I would remind you the Jesus told us. We would face troubles in this world but that we should take heart he has overcome the world. So it’s not nearly as as terrible as the mainstream. Media would like you to focus on and I urge you not to focus on that. You got to know what’s going on but focus on the good things focus on the great things that are going on in your life, and you’ll be a much happier person. Now, we’ll get onto the rest of the podcast in just a minute as part of the preparation I was just talking about I took a hard look at my self defense insurance coverage if you WANNA call it that or CW insurance or whatever. For many years I’ve you second call defense because I like the folks there they always seemed like they’d have my back and I still do like them and I still recommend. That service, the problem is that the level of coverage does not rise to what I need what my family and I need. We have a business, we have some rental properties we have our home. So we have a lot to lose and I’m in my sixties I mean my wife and are not getting younger at some point you know we’d like to retire and still own home still have some things we’ve fought for scrape for and save for our whole lives. We don’t want them taken away because one day we have to defend ourselves, and then somebody sues us or the government prosecutes us or whatever I remind you that I am in the People’s Socialist Republic of California. So I started looking for more coverage and a more robust company and what I found was CCW safe. Now I’ve looked at all of them and I explored all of them. So if you have a favorite, that’s fine but I’m letting you know that of all of them, the best I could find was CCW save because they provide on unlimited coverage for both civil and criminal people showing you or you being prosecuted unlimited coverage I could not find anybody else who does that the other thing that I thought was interesting is that even with some of these insurance companies if they provide a million dollars, for example, for a civil settlement and they say, well, you know we get sued. will pay a settlement up to a million dollars. Well, it depends on how they’re structured many of them. If it costs them five hundred thousand dollars to fight for that case in court that only leaves you five, hundred thousand dollars left of that million to pay any settlement because they’re using the settlement money to pay the court fees CCW safe does not do that. Those are two separate things. So if you have that coverage for a settlement in court, the that coverage is at coverage you end up losing in a civil action you end up owing a certain amount of money that coverage is what it is. It doesn’t shrink because CCW safe fought for you in court. Here’s. The other thing CCW’s safe can tell you and will tell you about specific cases they have fought and won I couldn’t get the other companies to do that. They were all pretty vague about it. I spent about an hour with them on the phone I want to encourage you if you are like me and you need serious coverage for this stuff so that you don’t end up standing on your porch, chasing off Antigua and getting prosecuted or sued and losing everything checkout CCW safe I will put a link in the description if there’s one available where you’re listening to the podcast or you can go to our website at Gun Guy Dot TV, and Click on the CW. Safe Banner. Expressed by the guy are always right. I’m lesser all. Back to what we were talking about it. That was certainly watch it good stuff going on. But then also the fact that I’ve spent a Lotta time preparing for the possibility of new emergencies coming up one of which was foreshadowed in a tweet by Andy. No. Now, you may never have heard of Andy. No, he spells his last name N. G. O.. Andy No is an independent journalists and he is in Portland Oregon as far as. I know and he’s been following the Portland protests and reporting on Antifa specifically for quite some time. In fact, he’s taken a beating from them in one instance was hospitalized and he’s threatened by them on a regular basis. So I watch his twitter feed because I want to keep abreast of what’s happening. You really don’t get the news by watching the news anymore you have to watch these independent journalists if you really want to know what’s happening. He recently posted the following if Donald Trump wins reelection in November, Americans will experience a wave of mass left wing violence rioting and looting much worse than what we’ve already. So far. Now, that’s a quote from his tweet and I’ve given that a lot of thought. So I thought I would share with you. My thanking on that. Certainly, if you are wise I think it’s wise to prepare for the fact that that might be true. 00:15:08 – 00:20:09 And it could come to a neighborhood near you. So you’re smart if you are well armed and perhaps prepared to. To bolt out of there if it gets too dangerous to stay, then you need to be able to go and you gotTa have a place to go otherwise you’re just a refugee or a homeless person. But at the same time you might stay and if you stay, well, this stuff might cause you to have to defend yourself or your family or your home. It may be an interruption services, police services most notably, but also things like water and electricity and that kind of stuff and just like any other natural emergency that isn’t caused by rioting sometimes, it can interrupt services. So it’s a good idea for you to be aware of that, and it might be a good idea for you to talk with your neighbors about this stuff I’m actually had a conversation with a few of my neighbors about this and each and every one of them has expressed A. To protect the neighborhood. Now I live in an area where that sort of the norm it’s We’ve had blackouts here before and everybody kind of comes together to keep the neighborhood safe. But that’s not the case everywhere and I realized that it might not be a bad idea for you to have a chat with your neighbors. Now, if you’re end the People’s Socialist Republic of California or a state that is of that ilk, you want to be careful about what you talk about because we do have the red flag laws and all that kind of stuff if you end up talking to Karen or. Some soy or whatever. It’s possible that they might have called in the police hand out that you scared them because you were talking about violence and this and that, and the other thing and the next thing you know there is always the remote possibility that your local constabulary it will be knocking on your door to serve you with some sort of search warrant or to come and talk with you about threatening manner or your craziness or whatever. So I would urge you to be a little careful about what you talk about with your neighbors but if your neighbors are open to that and you know it. Wouldn’t be bad conversation to have. Likewise. I would say again if you haven’t planned an exit, you might want to do that. If you live in a city, you might want to figure a way to get out into the country and maybe that’s because you have a friend or because you have family or something that has property out there and you can move out there with. Them temporarily or perhaps you’re fortunate enough to have a second home or a lot of camping equipment or an RV or something, and you can You can bust out and disappear night would encourage you to investigate those possibilities with this in mind and that is that you are not going to be the only one. Now why do I say that because? I’m telling you that you should do this because I’ve already done it in the last well I would say since the beginning of the Cova thing. When that first hit a buddy of mine I just actually just traded emails with him yesterday at something else. But a buddy of mine who has for the last three or four years been working to build a home in Utah for he and his wife to retire by the way they finished it I think last year and it’s a beautiful home they love to fly fish. So it’s right by a river and they’ve got land and all these other things and they really took many years to to acquire the right land have the house built and they did all this stuff because they’re getting ready to retire a little bit older than me. And for them, it’s time they they wanted to get out of California and live in a quieter place. Well, he called me right before governor gruesome nuisance or Gavin Nuisance or whatever you WANNA call him had put in his order to shut down the economy essentially. He called me right after that. In fact, it was the day of that order and ask me how things were going at the house and I said you’re in Utah, aren’t you and he said Yeah and I think I may have told you this story before. But in any case he and his wife packed up and off they went now they don’t have any kids never had. Any children. So they didn’t have any kids to worry about, and of course you know they’re in my age bracket. So parents are gone in their case and off, they went into Utah another still there all this time they’ve been in Utah. But what that told me was I suddenly woke up I, hung up the phone you know you hang up the phone and I thought to myself. Holy, smoke. We have no place to go. That didn’t really dawn on me. We have a very old kind of. RV, which we’re going to get rid of, but it’s not road. Worthy. So that’s not going to help us any, and so we and and where would we go anyway we don’t own any land anywhere. We do have rental properties but those are those renters we have one for example out in the city of El Centro. Well, you know the the folks that live there live there we can’t go along its hey by the. Way, get out removing you know. So where are we going to go? We didn’t know. So we decided to come up with a solution and I’ll tell you more about what we did in. Just a minute while I may have said many times that I don’t make a living from gun guy TV still cost money to produce this stuff and I still could use your support.

So there’s a way for you to support Gun Guy TV absolutely for free just use our Amazon link when you’re shopping Amazon saving the Second Amendment one episode at a time. This is the done Guy TV pot. One. Of the first things we started looking at was the possibility of replacing the RV we have with a new one or I should say one that’s new to us. We probably would buy used one rather than a new one, but that just didn’t Pan out part of it was money and part of it was there were other things but we just ended up. Not doing that instead we thought well, what can we do that? We would use anyway, but would also possession us to be able to escape if we needed to escape and what we decided to do was buy a really high quality cabin tent and we were going to buy I looked at wall tents and other things, but I wanted something with a floor because i. Want my wife to be comfortable. I want my in particular my wife I’m pretty easy going where that’s concerned I’ve camped and hunted all my life and so I really don’t mind some of this stuff but for her I wanted it to be more like a home than anything else. So we ended up buying a Kodiak Cabin Lodge tent, which is pretty good size. When we bought the vestibule and we bought a bunch of other things and we ordered really Nice Koch from S- lumberjack and really nice pads, and so we basically, we just built this cabin essentially that’s a portable cabin. We can take up and shut up anywhere with a woodstove and all this other stuff solar generator to go along with our four thousand watt gas. Generator that goes into the receiver hitch of my truck and all this other stuff. So basically, we can go and set up a camp much like you would set up an camp camper deer camp and have pretty much every amenity. We need including a hot shower, a toilet room or toilet bathroom type shelter, and all these other things. So we have the conveniences. Of Home and in a great way, the conveniences of an RV with the singular exception of we wouldn’t have air conditioning but we would have everything else and it something that we. Now we can pack it all up including the chuck box in the kitchen and the whole thing and it all fits in the eight foot bed of my Ford F three, fifty, four by. Four and whatever else doesn’t fit in there, which is just basically some additional provisions fuel food, some additional water, and that kind of stuff, and maybe some tools chainsaw on that kind of thing all goes in my son’s truck, which is a an F. One, fifty, four by four, and off we go and basically have two vehicles, both of which are in great shape. We’re not hauling anything large and because we’re driving four-wheel-drive, what can always get more remote than we could if we were driving pulling a big fifth wheel or something. So that’s our plan for an exit, and then what we’ve started doing is hunting down locations both in California and outside of California that give us primary secondary and tertiary choices depending on where we WANNA go. That way if we needed to go which I don’t think we will we needed to go we’d have a way get out i. urge you to do something like that and week but a lot of money on it less than we would spend buying an RV by far. But nevertheless, those kind of tensor not inexpensive. The woodstoves are not inexpensive. We bought a a really good stole from Colorado Cylinder Stoves, and a lot of the stuff that we bought. We bought over the last few months a little bit at a time, but we also armored up, we have body armor for everybody we have firearms ammunition. We have all kinds of things, lots of food, lots of water and so on. So because we had the budget to do it, we went after that the other thing we’ve done to, we’ve started to move a lot of our business operations out of California we can’t move ourselves because we were here. This is where our home is where our churches were. Kids are where my parents are and so on and they’re very elderly. So we had to come up with a with a way for them to get out as well, and that was a bit challenging. We’re still working on some details of that but. We couldn’t really move ourselves out of California and besides which I want to stay here and fight the second amendment battle. I. Really don’t WanNa move for that reason, but we could move some of our business operations out of California in preparation for our exit. Part of that is our business is largely online, not completely, but largely online on demand we had to make sure that we had Internet access wherever we went no matter what whether the cell network is upper down whether the the hardwired network is up or down doesn’t matter. 00:25:10 – 00:30:02 So we had to work out a cellular secondary system so that we could get on the web to produce videos for you and prevent post podcast and do the things we need to do for practical defense systems, and then also figure out a satellite based network so that even if all that went down in part of. The country or wherever we are, we could still hit the satellite still manage our company and still stay in business as long as somewhere somehow Internet was still working and we still had customers. So I’ve taken a lot I it really really does is particularly when you’re trying to figure out how to make a living if you have to bug out well, if you haven’t already started thinking about that I urge you to think about it more because the election is coming up in November and when you read things like the quote I gave you from Andy No you begin to wonder about it now. Having. said all that this is my this is my opinion Andy. No had said that with trump was elected we’re gonNA see more violence than we’ve ever seen before and it’s going to be widespread all over. The Nation. Honestly, I don’t think so. In. This is just now this is just my opinion and and I want to stress. You know what? I’m just a guy like your neighbor. Okay. These folks were on Youtube or like me a youtuber and I do a podcast. Special credibility. Okay. I’m just a regular guy smarter than you. I don’t have any insight that you don’t have I’m not I don’t have any inside track toward everything. I’m just a guy with an opinion. So don’t attach any more to my opinion than you attached to the guy next door and I urge you to do that. It doesn’t matter which Youtube Channel You’re watching how much you like them or how many subscribers they’ve got or which. PODCASTS you’re listening to or what TV channel you’re talking head you’re listening to none of them know what they’re talking about. They’re just doing what I’m doing, which is expressing an opinion and opinions are like noses everybody’s got one and some of them smell. So be aware of that and I’m GonNa give you my opinion here but please don’t attach too much weight to it because I could be completely wrong. So all right now having said that Here is my opinion. My opinion is that Donald trump is elected not long after he that’s all finalized and he is elected to a second term. The Hammer is GonNa drop pretty hard on these antiga rioters. Because at that point, the election’s over and he’s not trying to let the downs look stupid which they do very well on their own and he’s GonNa. Feel empowered to get the National Guard in there and put a stop to it. I’m having trouble envisioning Donald. J. Trump allowing and Tika black lives matter and their ilk to terrorize cities around this country any more than they already are, and I’m having trouble imagining him allow tolerating them doing it to the cities they’re doing it to currently considering I believe through the insurrection act he has the power. If the state local, you know the mayors and the governors either refuse to do it or cannot do it that at that point, it is my understanding that under the Insurrection Act, the president can call upon the National Guard federalized them and take care of the problem I could be wrong it because again, like I said, I’m just a guy from next door but. That is my opinion and so truthfully I’m not terribly worried about it as a result. I’m actually more focused on the fact that the blackouts are happening. We have a lot of fires going on in California we have natural disasters going on. So I like to make sure that we have plenty of water plenty of food and way to generate auxiliary electricity, and because we plan on staying here, we don’t plan on packing up and going anywhere. It just shocked me when I realized some of my friends had moved to their second homes one one and Wyoming one in Montana one in Utah and my wife and I realized wow, if we had to do that where would we go? Have a place to go when we couldn’t go buy a second home or build one and a fat hurry and we couldn’t we didn’t want to didn’t want to because it didn’t work out and couldn’t go down as it turned out and buy a new RV. So we did what we could do I think each of us regardless of our budget can do something and so if you’re not already doing that you should at the same time I’m not terribly worried about having to pack up and Leave San Diego County California because I just don’t think it’s going to happen. So, there you are. But again, don’t hold me to that because it’s just my opinion i. don’t like I said, I don’t have a crystal ball and I’m certainly not an analyst to analyze stuff. I’m just a blue collar working stiff with a small company, my wife and I own and a guy that’s got a youtube channel and that’s it. So take what I say with a grain of salt because I could be wrong about San. Diego County for all I know that stuff could show up here and and we would have to go and so that’s one of the reasons why we made some preparations. 00:30:02 – 00:30:37 In that regard and I’m looking at the time realizing I just ran myself completely at a time on this end of the podcast for the segment. So what I’ll do is get into more detail on what we have done and what we’re doing hopefully this week in the next part of the podcast on Patriots. So if you’re on patriots stick with me, we’ll get into the next part of the podcast if you’re listening to the podcast on your favorite podcasts player, then I, encourage you to sign up for Patriot if you’d like to do that and in the meantime wherever you go whatever you do please be safe.

Because were winning! Episode 78 00:00:00 – 00:05:14 Get ready for certified USDA prime gun stuff on the Gun Guy TV podcast. This is Joel Persinger. I’m the gun guy. Thank you very much for all of your support of Gun Guy TV and of me personally, I’m very grateful I get some great notes from people encouraging me to keep on doing this, and once in a while, somebody will send a little donation or something, and then we have a lot of support on Patriot for which I’m very grateful and by the way, that’s how this podcast works. The first half is available publicly on your favorite podcast player, and then we also post a video version which appears on Youtube and the other video platforms a bit shoot meal. Gun Streamer we’re still on gun streamer thought it was going to die, but it didn’t and I’m grateful for that and some other places. So the video is up there there is no real video to it. It’s just a thumbnail we throw up there, but it’s a way for you to listen to the podcast. If you’d like also on the video channels because a lot of folks like to do that rather than user podcast player, and then we have a lot of folks use the podcast clear because they listened to the podcast on the way to work or. Whatever and I’ve been doing that a lot with other podcast lately because I’ve been traveling a lot for practical defense systems. In fact, I just got back yesterday, which is why this podcast is a couple of days late and I apologize for that also, I should announced one other chain which I I’ve got a video or two coming out in the next couple of days while announced. I’ve I’ve announced that there as well, and that is that in this month, which is August, the livestream I normally do on the second Tuesday of every month at six o’clock I’m. Going to do on the second Monday, which is this coming Monday so I’m going to do it on Monday Tuesday because once again, I’ll be gone traveling on Tuesday so I can’t do it while travelling so that Kinda messes up my schedule I do apologize for all of that practical defense systems business, my wife and I own and I’ve just got a lot going on right now. So it’s been kind of a crazy time and as a result, it has thrown a monkey wrench in the Gun Guy TV publishing schedule getting videos out and podcast and other things so. I I ask you to bear with me there. We’ll get back on track here as quickly as we can. Now I just mentioned or maybe I didn’t. I. Don’t Know My brain is going and I’m only halfway through my first cup of coffee this morning. so forgive me the first half of the PODCAST is public on your favorite podcast player, and then the second half will be unpatriotic only while I was traveling all kinds of cool stuff happens I want to talk with you about that, and some of is very encouraging now over the last couple of days. We’ve had all this stuff going on with National Rifle, association and the Attorney General of new. York. Wanting to file a lawsuit against and indeed doing. So with apparently the idea of destroying the NRA well, good luck with that. So let me make a few comments about that real quick. First of all the NRA has had a number of problems over the last bio, two three years or something many of the NRA members including me have some faith if not a lot of faith in a leadership of the NRA to the degree that there’s been a an. Attempted removal of Wayne, Lapierre, and some of the board members who have been there a long time and arguably I think should be gone. That’s my opinion. So take that for what you will I’m just one guy, but that is my opinion and there’s been some disclosure or at least some reporting I don’t know whether you would call it disclosure. There have been some accusations with regard to the inappropriate spending of money and the inappropriate use of NRA resources and some inappropriate behavior within the four walls of the array. Now I don’t know if any of those things are. True but those accusations have certainly been levied and there’s a lot of them. So I’m not going to get into the weeds there about that because if you want to know about that, then there’s lots of sources that you can look at to find out what those things are, and indeed some of them were levied. Those were things that were levied against NRA by the Attorney General of New York, but here’s the issue with her thing. So let me get into that briefly and I’m not GONNA get too much into the weeds of NRA except to say I in. Fact probably before I get into that, I should explain to you my take on NRA in general as you may or may not know I’m a life member of NRA been longtime as my wife and I do support the National Rifle Association do not take that to mean that I support Wayne Lapierre’s in particular because I don’t I have in the past in many respects I’ve always thought of Wayne and I and I I should probably pause here and say that I have never met Wayne Lapierre do not know the man I’ve never met him. We’ve never cross paths. And he would know me from Adam and that’s fine and I don’t know him. He’s just a guy as I am concerned however. He may any any may be a very talented chief executive I have no idea but he has never struck me as being a guy who should be the face and name of anything that wants to succeed because when he’s in public doing an interview or whatever he seems to struggle to answer questions with any meaningful statement whatsoever other than to just repeat talking points. 00:05:15 – 00:10:03 AD, Nauseam, he does not seem to be able to off the cuff things very. Well, it has to be very prepared and he’s not personable in any reasonable way. He’s very stiff. In fact, he always kind of reminds me a little bit of a of Lurch from the family whenever he’s sitting doing an interview because he’s extraordinarily stiff and extraordinarily dull. He’s dull as watching paint dry. So I’ve never been particularly impressed with Wayne Lapierre’s public presence in the idea that he was chosen as the public face for many years of NRA has. Always baffled me but nevertheless that said, he may be a great or even maybe just a good chief executive. If the allegations are true with Wayne Life Year, then I think he needs to retire and I have thought he needed to retire for a long time and even if they are not true then at some point in the near future I think and and I think he should have done it a while ago I think Wayne Lapierre needs. To retire because Wayne Lapierre at this point has become a millstone around the neck of the NRA and has dragged on array down a lot because of these repeated attacks upon his character as an individual and his behavior as the chief executive officer of Array. Likewise, I think there are a number of old timey people in NRA who’ve been there for a long time on the board and and other places and they need to go as well because. It would seem at least to me from looking from the outside in that NRA in a lot of ways has become a place that has mirrored the swamp of Washington DC and at the swamp has sort of infected the national. Rifle Association and it has a swamp of its own and that the chief swamp creature would be Wayne Lapierre’s. So there you go. There’s my opinion in the meantime however, I still support. NRA because I think NRA is without a doubt the most powerful Second Amendment Organization that we have in this country and killing an array would be tantamount to killing our rights. So there you go. There’s my opinion you can agree whether or not. That’s fine. You know what? We have a right to agree to disagree, and we have a right to debate things. So there you go. I’ve given you my view and it doesn’t necessarily have to be yours. Yours may be completely different than if you’d like to share that you can do that in the comments or you could send me a note or whatever now. All of that having been said, do I think that we should be attacking in our a at this moment and the answer to that question would be a resounding no our enemies attack NRA like crazy and I am certainly not going to do it. So if you were to ask me today as a brand new gun owner of your brand new gun owner, should you support the National Rifle Association? My answer would be an absolute unequivocal. Unambiguous yes. I do. I don’t support some of the leadership and I don’t support some of the foolish things they do and I don’t like the fact that they may be doing things with the money. They shouldn’t be doing I don’t know that that’s the case, but that is what they’ve been accused of but do I support the national rifle. Association. Yes and here’s one of the many reasons why in addition to this AG thing which I’ll address in a second. It’s an interesting little headline that happened to come out I think yesterday or this morning NRA plans to spend tens of millions of dollars. In battleground states. And when I read this morning NRA endorses Donald Trump. Now I don’t know that Donald Trump had an instant success in his hands when he decided to run for president in two, thousand, sixteen I think everybody joked about him and thought he was kidding me a lot of people said he was kidding but he was all of a sudden he turned out to be serious and then he was. A force to be reckoned with. Now, I am going to tell my I’m GONNA blow my own horn here and say that when he first announced his candidacy for President I said to a great many people and I may have said it on this show I don’t know. But I said it to a great many people that if you serious which I wasn’t sure whether he was or not but serious. Anybody who looked at Donald trump if he’s serious about running for president. And didn’t take him seriously and didn’t consider him. A genuine threat and didn’t think that he would probably succeed. Was a fool. Because that’s a man who does not like to lose. And he works harder than most people you’ll ever find a planet a dozen give up. As you can tell, I, spend at the battle he’s been going through for the last three years. 00:10:03 – 00:15:00 So I’m of the opinion that Donald Trump’s probably gonNA get reelected but I will give a lot of credit to the National Rifle Association for spending as much money almost spending itself broke. In getting him elected and if it weren’t for the National Rifle, association spending the kind of money spent. And pulling its members along. Donald Trump might not be president today. I don’t think we should forget that now before i. go any further on this subject I should remind you that there are many ways to help gun guide TV survive the current chaos one of which is to use our Amazon link. You can shop Amazon and buy anything you like from toilet paper to toothpaste a gun stuff it doesn’t matter and whatever you buy, we will receive a little. Marketing fee that cost you absolutely nothing. It’s the easiest way for you to support Gun Guy TV and not spend one red cent. The Way to do it is pretty simple. You just go to our website at gun guide DOT TV and at the top of the website on the homepage in fact I think it appears on every page there’s a little rectangular banner, the talks about Shopping Amazon if. You Click, on that banner, we’ll take you to our Amazon link essentially, it takes you to Amazon but it takes you to Amazon through our Amazon leg. So the R. in the top of that Amazon pages different because it’s our Amazon Url. If you then bookmark that Amazon page, the banner takes you to and use that bookmark every time you shop Amazon start there go ahead and get that. bookmarked pages start at that bookmarked page. If you do that the no matter what you buy on Amazon, we’re going to get credit for as a little marketing fee. Now, it doesn’t amount to a ton of money, but you know what every little bit helps and it certainly would help us keep gun guide TV alive shooting straight and always right on target. This is a gun guy to heap podcast. Now back to the NRA just recently. I’ve given you my whole spiel now. Okay. Just recently. A local Second Amendment Organization, decided to go after the NRA, I’m not gonNa tell you which one and I’m not gonNa tell you where because I don’t WanNa get into calling people out here but they did and they’ve got an made a video about it and they made a big stink about Iran I thought that was very unwise at this time we are in the middle of a presidential election cycle in which NRA support is more important than trying to get rid of people that we don’t like an NRA that you know Wayne here perhaps being one of them right now. Tearing each other apart and using this opportunity to attack one another. Is Not a good thing if anything let’s support one another. So I’m going to declare my support right now for the National Rifle Association which I’ve done many times. I do think after the election’s over that Wayne Lapierre’s should retire and that we do need to drain the swamp within the National Rifle Association. But now is not the time to do it. The NRA is currently according to a news article. I saw which I may have just mentioned that I’m halfway through a cup of coffee. So if I haven’t I’ll mention to you. Now there’s a news article in which one a member of NRA’s management or something was quoted as saying that NRA has been increasing its membership by one thousand members. Since June. Well that’s a really good thing. That’s a good thing because an arrangement struggling for awhile financially with some other things because of all the attacks on it. But if they’re getting a thousand members at daily, tells me a lot one tells me people do support the national rifle. Association also tells me there’s an awful lot of brand new gun owners out there who are joining an array because they see nra the premier organization to protect their rights and they’re concerned they’re gonNA lose their rights if basement Biden of slow Joe Biden if Joe, Biden Ido no. Just my sister and my wife is elected and you know what they’re right if he’s elected where you’re going to have a battle for our rights that is unprecedentedly difficult and we could very well lose them. So, keeping Mr Trump in the oval office is a very good thing and keeping Joe Biden out is a very good thing. So the fact that people are joining on Iran I think is very positive. Now is not the time for me or any other voice out there in the Second Amendment community if we are community and I, hope we are to start ragging on NRA. If we’re going to do that. Let’s wait till after the election, and then we can go after trying to drain the swamp within the National Rifle Association. Likewise, I would urge those who are part of other organizations not to use this opportunity as a bludgeon to beat an array with for the purpose of expanding their own membership it’s time for us to pull together, not attack one. 00:15:00 – 00:20:03 Another and I gotTa tell you. I think that these this attack on the interest going to backfire and I’m not the only one. If you look at the news from yesterday or even today, you’re going to see a lot of people commenting in that fashion that this attack on the NRA is going to backfire. In fact Jason Chaffetz I think is his name as a former. Congressman or former senator or something I don’t remember. But anyway, he had a an interesting statement, the other day I I read I had to find it for you but this is his statement I don’t hear anything new with regard to the AG stuff I don’t hear anything new. Chafe, said these allegations have been out there for a long time and I haven’t seen anything come. Of It but one of the reasons Democrats keep going after the NRA is their highly effective. This is a simple easy argument for the overwhelming majority of Americans you have a constitutional right to bear arms and I agree with him however, I don’t think that’s why Asia’s going after them I I think the timing of it is obvious were right. What are we eighty six days? Are Eighty five days or something from an election in which the swamp wants Donald Trump gone the swamp wants Mitch McConnell gone the swamp wants to take over both the House and the Senate, and I honestly don’t think they’re going to be able to do it. I really feel pretty strongly based upon what I’ve read that only is president trump going to get reelected but he may. They may Republicans may take back the House and that there’s a strong chance that they’re going to keep the Senate NRA being part of that and pushing for that and spending money to make that happen is a key ingredient in making that happen. So killing the NRA would make a lot of sense for these folks. So they’re taking this particular moment to go after them. And one of the things that tells me that by the way is if you look at the reality of the situation from the standpoint of the AG of New York, she’s the attorney general and and not being an expert in this stuff I’ll just share with you my thoughts on it and then you can make them what you will, but it seems to me that attorneys general. Focus on criminal things because that’s their job. Now, they’ll file lawsuits against other states or whatever. But the generally as far as I know, they don’t file lawsuits typically against organizations or individuals instead they indict them and prosecute them. If the things that she is accusing NRA of were a criminal and be so agreed that she actually had some serious evidence that they actually occurred. Wouldn’t she be prosecuting? Wouldn’t she be indicting Wayne Lapierre’s and others? But she’s not. She’s suing them. She’s using the taxpayer dollars of the tax payers of New York. To, sue, NRA. She’s not prosecuting them. Well, I just read a headline that said that NRA was going to spend tens of millions of dollars in battleground states. Let’s see how could you keep them from doing that maybe Bhai draining them of of millions of dollars in frivolous lawsuits brought by attorneys general or whomever from other places, and by the way I don’t think she’s the only government official trying to sue and our attic. There’s a lawsuit from Washington DC as well if I remember but in any case, this is all nonsense. Drummed up because of the election, they’re trying to injure the National Rifle Association and thereby keep gun owners from victory that could be coming in November. So let let’s think about this now. If Donald Trump is reelected which I hope he will be and if the Republicans keep the Senate and perhaps expand on their majority there, and if the Republicans reclaim the house and have a decent majority there, we may very well see a renaissance in the second amendment that we were had been hoping for for a long time and never could see because at. That point we have at least two Supreme Court justices that are going to need to be replaced at some point I do not think that Ruth Bader Ginsburg or Ruth Bader Ginsburg her she says it is going to be able to stay in the court for another four years. She spent almost as much time in the hospital currently as she does at work. So, at some point, she’s going to be too old to do it and she’s going to have to step down or she may pass away just of old age because she’s getting up there, and then we also have other justices or getting pretty old. There may be an opportunity for president trump to replace a couple of the left-leaning highly liberal justices on the Supreme Court and if. The Senate still remain Republican hands and Mitch McConnell is still leading it. You can be pretty well assured that he’ll be successful in doing. So He’s been successful in appointing well over two hundred conservative federal judges to the Federal Bench. Now, they’re not all gonNa rule quite the way we would want him to, and some of them might turn out to be ringers and surprise us but. For the most part they’re going to change the face of the federal judiciary, which will allow us to win cases that we otherwise might lose. 00:20:04 – 00:25:01 Essentially president trump is dismantling what the loony left globalist have been doing to our country for the last fifty years, and he’s dismantled a lot of it in his first term. If. He’s allowed to have a second term. He’ll probably kill entire beastie drain the swamp entirely, and we’ll start seeing some fabulous things happened with regard to our rights. I have mentioned new gun owners a few times here. So I’m going to mention him again just because you may be one of them or you may be a gun owner who has A. Gun for self defense, but you’ve never really concerned yourself about what happens afterwards. So if you ever defend yourself with a firearm, you may get yourself one hack of a surprise I. Urge you to check out some sort of Second Amendment Insurance, some self-defense insurance of some kind, and there are whole lot of companies that do that one of which is called. Call Defense and second call defense as a sponsor of the Gun Guy TV podcast and of the gun guy. TV Channel on Youtube and other places they have been for a long time they’ve been with me I don’t know for three or four years. Now I do use second call defense and no, they do not provide it for free I actually pay for it it is the coverage that I have in case I ever have to defend myself with a firearm or whatever legal weapon I might have, and in this particular world where things are getting more interesting it’s entirely possible that that might happen I. Sure. Hope not but if it does I, don’t WanNa. Lose my home and everything I own and everything I’ve fought to achieve in my life because I have to sell it all in order to. Defend Myself in criminal or civil court that sometimes happens. So if you have a gun for self defense or you carry a gun like I, do every day I, urge you to get yourself some self-defense coverage and I would urge you to try second call defense. Now, if you do I, encourage you to go to our website at gun guide dot TV and Click on the second call Defense Tab. Or if you scroll down a little bit, you’ll find a banner ad forums, second call defense, and that way if you sign up for second call to fans the Nell know that you did it through gun guide TV and will actually get credit for it. That does help us to maintain second call defense as a sponsor. So I do urge you to support them and in doing so you’ll support us. The opinions expressed by Lagoon. Guy Are always right unless they’re all. Now, back to what we were talking about previously, which was the NRA in the whole lawsuit thing in the attacks on them, and by the way this kind of concerted effort and coordinated effort you’re seeing this coming from various different quarters. All right before the election. So the fact that this is more political than it is actual is very transparently true. I think at this point as gun owners, we need to support one another and we need to support all of these organizations and in particular the national rifle. Association I. Realized People Are GonNa get mad at me for saying that but. The truth is this is not the first thing. I’ve ever said that people got mad about and I’ve I do feel strongly about it. In January when it’s all over and hopefully we have figured out who’s won the election I don’t know what cheat by mail you never know but I hope then we can go back to what we’re going to do to help the NRA be better and a drain the swamp at the National Rifle Association. But for right now, when we’re facing the presidential election that could change the country entirely if the wrong guy ends up in office I, think it’s time for us to. Stick together and not beat each other up. So I urge you to support NRA rather than attack and RA, they’re already under attack from a host of different quarters and they’re defending themselves as best they can. By the way, I couldn’t help but notice that no sooner did the Attorney General of New York file a lawsuit against NRA that NRA went back and filed a lawsuit against the Attorney General of New York. The one thing I will say for the National Rifle Association. Is, they do have the capacity to defend themselves and they’re pretty darn good at it. They’ve been fighting this battle for a long time, and I will say about Wayne Lapierre’s the man is or at least appears to be two nations and perhaps right now that’s exactly what we need. Now like I said in January, I’m happy to go back and revisit what can we do to get Wayne to retire and to get some of these other folks who have been in there. A. Long Time and are part of the NRA swamp out of there so that we can try to build the NRA in something even greater than what it is but right now is not the time to do it. Do I think we should support other organizations as well. Yes. I am a life member of gun owners of America. I am a life member of the California rifle and Pistol Association. I am a life member of the Second Amendment Foundation I’m a member of. Gun Owners of California and I’ve told San many times they offered a life membership. It’d be a life member there too. But instead I’m an annual member I’m a member of the national. 00:25:01 – 00:29:17 Shooting Sports Foundation and so on and I support these organizations as best I can on this show and financially when I have the means to do it. But as I’ve said, many times I’m not a wealthy person I’m a blue collar working man so there’s only so much money to throw. Around you know I’m just a middle class guy here. So you know unlike Joe Biden I don’t have a garage full of hot rods that I can show you while I’m promoting electric cars or whatever other stupid thing guy does. So I can only do what I can do but I do the best I can to support all these organizations and indeed as I’ve said, many times even during all this turmoil I am a life member of the national. Rifle Association. I’m a proud member of NRA. I’m grateful for NRA and I support NRA. I would just like to see some of the folks running it dep- off I mean retire and then we’ll move on and try to make the organization better and perhaps at some point more powerful than it is now however now is not the time I’ll say it again now is not the time we have less than ninety days to a presidential election that is vital to saving our rights Donald. Trump, whatever issues you may have with him needs to be re elected as president of the United States and the Republicans whatever issues you may have with them need to retake the house and keep the. Senate. If we can do that, we can achieve a lot in this country in the coming years before Donald Trump is termed out and before things swing the other way right now, he is in the process of dismantling sixty years of globalist leftist nonsense that we’ve suffered through. And he’s done a pretty darn good job dismantling a lot of it, and that’s why they’re such a battle to keep him out of office and that’s why there’s so much hatred and vitriol. And just about everything right now is associated with that all this civil unrest you’re seeing in certain cities like Portland and Seattle and so on. It’s all about trump I hate to say everything’s about trump but it is this stuff is all about keeping him out of office and we can’t get distracted or fooled by that. So as gun owners is super important that we support one another stand with one another and make sure that we try to keep our battle for the Second Amendment going now, people are going to get mad at me now again, I’m GonNa. Say it again is Donald Trump that perfect second amendment president? No, he isn’t. He isn’t and you’re never GONNA get one. You’re never gonNA have a president of the United States that you agree with on all things. In fact, if you ever find a human being whom you agree with on everything, I’ll be stunned I never have in fact frankly sometimes, I don’t agree with myself one hundred percent of the time. But is Donald Trump. Right now, our best bet to safeguard rights and to save our country from all the damage done by previous presidents Brock Obama at all the answers absolutely. Yes, and we need to keep him in office. Well I think I’ve run myself out of time for this first half of the podcast in the next half of the pot cash will talk about the good things that have been happening lately in the victories we’ve been having and we’ve had actually quite a few. We’ve had some notable victories in the state, of California, over just the last week which I think are very interesting and we’re seeing some other victories as well. So I’ll share those with you so that you can. Be encouraged at this battle for the Second Amendment and battle for our rights is winnable. We are winning. Now we’re facing some losses to remember battles are just battles and the entire war if you want to call it, that is a whole different thing it’s a collection of battles and we need to win them strategically and we need to win them. Often we are winning. It’s important to know that you won’t hear that in the in the mainstream Marxist media, some people call it. But it is true. We are winning and we’re going to keep on winning. That’s my faith, and that’s my hope and I want to encourage you with that and we’ll talk more about that in the next part of the podcast on Patriots. So if you’re unpatriotic I, want you to stick with me if you’re listening to the podcast on your favorite podcast player to the syndicated version. Thank you so very much for all of your support have a wonderful week and wherever you go whatever you do please be safe. You’ve been listening to the Gun Guy TV podcast.

Is NRA Training Any Good? – Episode 77
Topics in this episode: If you own a gun for self-defense, training is essential. The question is, where to get it? I’ve attended a lot of training. One suggestion that I would make is that you take the NRA Personal Protection series of courses. They include NRA Personal Protection Inside the Home and NRA Personal Protection Outside The Home for concealed carry. Both are excellent. I took mine at AllSafe Defense with T.J. Johnston.

Maybe you’re in a state where you can carry legally whether that’s concealed or exposed, then g you WANNA. WanNa get some training with a firearm or even if you have a firearm for home defense, and maybe you’re in a state where you can’t take it outside the House and carry it with you. It’s good to have training on how to defend yourself at home, and then in the second part of the podcast we’ll talk about. I believe you should not listen to the mainstream media because. Because the mainstream media is a Marxist group and they have their own agenda. which I believe is false, and I’m gonNA tell you exactly why we’ll talk about that. In the second part of the PODCAST, but first. Let’s talk about the training component. If you listen to podcasts at all, you probably know that. I grew up in the construction trades my step. Dad was a masonry contractor my. My mother and father unfortunately got divorced when I was a very young child. I think it was five or six years old and I would spend part of the year with my dad, who was a deputy sheriff and part of the year with my mom mother, then married a gentleman who was a masonry contractor was a Korean I’ll actually both of them were Korean War Vet era veterans. A. My dad was in the airforce and my Stepdad was in the army, but any case my Stepdad was a masonry, contractor, brick, block and cement and stone. Slabs and that kind of stuff, and that’s what he did for a living so I came up in that trade as a boy, and that’s the trade I learned, and that’s what I started doing. Right out of high school was working in the masonry trade, so I’ve been around tradesmen and construction sites and that kind of stuff a lot of my life. I have two brothers, one younger and one older. Who did that? That for the rest of their lives, and until they retired and did very well, so it’s a really good trade. I’m a big proponent of the trades in general. My son for quite some time was an electrician. Although he’s now now wanting to do something else he’s wanted to be. A chef is entire life and so he’s going to go back to school and learn to be a chef and probably leave the. The electrical trade, which is not a disappointment to me. I want him to do what what is good for him, but that’s a new adventure in his life along the way, though and the reason why bring it up as I’ve used a lot of power tools and I can tell you that over the years in the trade I think the the held power tools or the small power tools that are the. The most dangerous that I’ve seen are skill saws, and certainly chainsaws, and among the smaller tools, and anybody uses particularly on a construction site whether they’re damning something which you’d use a chainsaw for in some instances, or you’re building something you might use a table saw for I’ve seen more fingers missing as a result of table SAWS and I’ve heard about or been told about more leg injuries as a result of chainsaws. Now. Why do I bring this up while if you have a tool that is a positive tool that you can do great things with, but that tool is inherently dangerous, if not used properly then getting some training on how to use the tool is a very good thing and using the various and sundry types of protective equipment that you might use when using the tool is also good, so for example with a chainsaw you wanNA. 00:05:04 – 00:10:06 Always use chainsaw chaps. I’ve seen guys don’t wear them, but I gotta tell you mostly injuries. You’re going to see from. Chainsaws are leg injuries because? Because when that chain boxer that saw bucks back, sometimes it ends up on your leg and the chainsaw chaps will reduce the chance of injury or reduce the severity of it. I’ve seen guys use sticks to push that piece of went through that last few inches of that table saw precisely because they don’t want to be missing fingers at the end of the day, and I’ve met a lot of guys who are missing fingers from one hand or another, because they took them all off at once on a table saw same thing with band saws and that kind of stuff. Well when you have a firearm, a firearm is a very dangerous tool. It can be a safe tool and it can be used safely so that you can defend yourself without injuring yourself or someone else whom you don’t wished ginger, however, the more training you have I believe the better now. I’ve been teaching shooting for many many many years I think. Oh, I don’t know five years or six years or seven years ago. My then business partner WHO’s since left the company sat down and calculated how many people I had taught shooting, and he came up with the number that I was a number. That kind of astounded me actually told me one day that he figured out that I had personally taught seven thousand people how to shoot at that time. Time and that’s several years ago now just for the record that’s not individually teaching each student that’s teaching clashes, and when you total up the number of people in each class and add up all the classes. That’s how he came up with that number and I did do quite a bit of personal one on one individual teaching, but there’s no way to ever get the seven thousand doing that. But the point is I’ve taught thousands of people how to shoot and that seven thousand figure is probably double or triple that now because many years have gone by. When I’ve seen during that time, is that folks really do benefit from some great training with their handgun in particular, but whether it’s handgun shotgun rifle, they benefit from all of those things now I’ve been a law enforcement instructor for a long time and I’ve taught some police officers and a lot of security officers, and I’ve taught courses on handgun. Because that’s what they carry all day, sidearm, patrol, shotgun patrol rifle, and I am a certified law enforcement instructor, and that’s what I teach. So for many years, I’ve taught those things. And what I’ve learned is that the benefit of training cannot be overstated all right now. That I’ve made that argument. Let me tell you about a great class that you can take quite easily, which will be phenomenal and help you in the in the application of your firearm as a home defence or self defense tool and I should have said the safe application of your firearm as a tool for home, defence or self defense whether you’re carrying it or you just have it for home defence. The National Rifle Association. No matter what heartburn you may have with them at the moment because of lane here whatever it has done a tremendous job over the over the many many decades well one hundred years I mean or more. In training people. That’s really I. Think what they started doing most effectively. They do a lot of things very effectively, but more than any other gun group. The NRA does a better job at training than just about anybody else. At one. Colonel Jeff Cooper was on the NRA show was a gentleman named. TJ Johnston and they knew each other. Colonel Cooper. Passed away many years ago. He was quite old. And if you don’t know who Colonel Jeff, Cooper was he was a Marine Corps colonel. He was the founder of gunsight ranch, which you probably heard of, and he is arguably the father of modern pistol craft. If you go to gunsight front sight, you go to any major school to learn how to fight with a handgun and you’re going to learn techniques that were created by Jeff Cooper. There’s a lot of them. One that might come to mind would be flash sight picture. That was something developed by Colonel Jeff. Cooper If you ever get to read his books. You’ll learn a lot because he was a phenomenal pistol shot, but he was also quite the guy when it came to coming up with ways to use that gun effectively to fight for your life. Well, the NRA wanted to have some courses that they could teach people for defending themselves at home, and for defending themselves on the street. One of those courses has called personal protection outside the home, and that course was developed by Jeff Cooper and in part TJ Johnston. Well Jeff is dead, but teach is not. He’s still teaching. He’s in Orange California. And he owns a company called all safe defense now I’ve known TJ for a long long time. 00:10:06 – 00:15:01 He is easily one of the best instructors I have ever had. The privilege to know and I thoroughly enjoy taking classes with him. Do you need to take that class from TJ? No, but if you’re orange, I suggest that you do or if you’re anywhere in southern California I would. Would suggest you go take classes from him. The reason why it’s fresh in my mind is because I just took the NRA personal protection outside the home course from Tj and I’m GonNa tell you more about that.

Let’s get back to what I was talking about. which was training for tools, which can sometimes be dangerous so as I said you know if you’re gonNA, use a chainsaw. Get some training on how to use it whether that’s simply reading. The instructions are talking to somebody that knows what they’re talking about, and the same thing would be true with any other kind of power tool well, that’s certainly the case when it comes to handguns. Handguns, rifles, shotguns, or anything else you might employ with which to defend yourself, but certainly some of the most dangerous things that we can use to defend ourselves would be firearms. Obviously, a stick is not as dangerous. A pepper spray is not as dangerous a knife while it is incredibly dangerous is less prone to serious accidents. You’re not going to accidentally kill someone across the street will by using a knife inside your home and so those. Those those things are very dangerous in some respects, but not quite as dangerous as a firearm so firearms or something we want to have more training with rather than less and the other thing. I should probably point out, too. Is that training is something that should be on going? You don’t take one class and that’s IT and okay I’m trained for life because shooting is a perishable skill and oftentimes the kinds of shooting that you would. Would have to do to defend yourself. You’re only going to get to practice in a class because that’s the only place you’re gonNA. Find a range situation where you can actually do the shooting and moving and pyan corners and shooting around barriers and working from the whole sure, and the kinds of things that you’re going to need to be able to do well and practice in order to fight for your life, so taking classes ongoingly. ongoingly as a very positive thing, and in fact, let me tell you why I was there. And perhaps this will help illustrate that a little bit. The reason I was taking the course. TJ Is because as a licensed firearms instructor. I have a number of licenses for example. I’m a certified instructor with California. Department of Justice approved instructor with the San Diego. County Sheriff’s Department I’m a certified law enforcement instructor with the National Rifle Association law. Law. Enforcement Activities Division. I’m a licensed instructor with the California Bureau of Security and investigative services and I could keep going on. In fact, there’s probably five other licenses I have for example. I’m a certified shotgun coach for the Shotgun Sports, and that includes skeet, sporting clays bunker, and so on, and so there’s lots of different things that I’m certified or licensed to teach which require me to do continuing education on a regular basis just as As my wife has a speech and language. Pathologist has certain continuing education requirements for licensing and certifications, but she has to do every year. I have certain hours of training. I have to do in each one of those disciplines every year in order to maintain my licensing and certifications and every industries like that it doesn’t matter what you do. Really close friend of mine is name is John. He’s a a computer whiz, but that guy. 00:15:00 – 00:20:05 Guy Has to do continuing education in order to be the The genius he is where computer systems are concerned. He’s the director of it at the Metro Transit. System here in San Diego so he’s at a very high level in this, and he has to continually stay abreast of what’s new with regard to information technology, so it really doesn’t matter what you do for a living. You have continuing education that you have to do. Well along the way I’ve got to be a little creative. As to the courses, I have to take I’m not taking the same snake and courses over and over again otherwise gets a little boring after a while now I do go to front sight periodically probably once a year or twice a year I’ll get out there and I take other courses with other places, and every time I get a chance I will go take a course at a different place because I. Get a different view of the particular discipline I’m working on. We’ll just so happens that I have about eight hours I think I have to look now. But I think I have eight hours I need to complete this year that I haven’t done yet for handgun, and so I was looking for an eight hour course in order to do that and I couldn’t figure out where I wanted to go. I was thinking about going back a frontside, or maybe go into gun side, or I was looking at two or Or three different options, but time and space and place and travel became an issue I started looking at the courses I had taken with Tj, and it suddenly dawned on me I had never taken the personal protection outside the home course with him and I had never gotten the personal protection outside the home instructor certification with the National Rifle Association I thought. Thought I had, but you know I’ve got many. I didn’t I didn’t notice that I didn’t have that one so I contacted TJ. He had a class and I went now in order to get the instructor certification. I have to not only take the course itself, but then after I’ve taken that course, and only after. I’ve taken that course I. Get to go. Go back and then take the instructor course on how to teach it so this past weekend I went up and saw TJ in orange, and I took the personal protection outside the home. Course I had already taken the personal protection inside the home course years ago, and I had gotten the certification to teach that course with the National Rifle Association years ago. I cannot overstate the quality of those courses. They are out standing the inside. The home course addresses all of the issues that you’re gonNA face defending yourself inside your home in the case of a a burglary or in the case of a home, invasion or something along those lines, and you need to defend yourself in your home. This course is going to prepare you for that better than most courses I’ve ever seen or ever taken, and as as you can tell. I take a lot of classes because I’m required to I would like to anyway, but being required to SORTA twists my arm and says okay Joel. You have to go take a shooting class. Twist my arm. As one of those right, but that is an outstanding course, the personal protection inside the home course. No, I’m not getting paid a dime from the National Rifle Association to tell you this I’m referring you to these courses, because there are a lot of shooters out there who have guns who have never had formal training, and there’s a lot of folks who just bought a gun because they’re concerned about covid, nineteen and the civil unrest in the black lives, matter and a- and all this other crazy stuff. That’s what you’re seeing in the news. All the time and show gun sales have gone through the roof. Well, not everybody can peel away a week and go to frontside. frontside or a week or go to gun, side or a week and go to thunder, ranch, or a week, and go to the six hour, Academy, or a week, and go to academy, or whatever or sometimes two weeks, and not. Everybody’s got twenty five hundred bucks for three thousand dollars to go do that because those courses can be very expensive and there’s a reason they’re very expensive because they’re very very good, and it doesn’t matter. Which of those schools I mentioned that you go to their all phenomenal. They’re all phenomenal. I’m GONNA say the third time they’re all phenomenal. If you ever get a chance to go to any of those schools. I strongly suggest that you do. Do, so you will walk away stunned at how much you will learn. And how fantastic courses are at those places so I? Do urge you to go there and I’m not trying to talk out of it. I go to those places or places like that as often as I’m able to go and I encourage police officers to do it. I encouraged civilians to do it and I encourage military members to do it. One of the best courses I think I’ve ever taken is the NRA law enforcement instructor core series now? You can’t take that unless you have a law enforcement, history or you’re in the law enforcement training business. You have certain requirements. You have to meet in order. Order to be able to get into those law enforcement instructor courses, but if you’re a law enforcement officer, and you’re listening to me right now. I strongly suggest you get in there and take those courses because they are phenomenal as well, but let’s get back to personal protection courses inside and outside the home. The first one you WanNa take is personal protection inside the home, which I told you briefly was focused entirely on the trouble. 00:20:05 – 00:25:01 You will face inside your home. Fighting for your life, it is an outstanding course series, and it is well. We’re taking I believe it is a two day courses well. There are available on the weekends and the Nice thing about these courses. Let’s say you can’t get to Orange, California to take TJ Johnston which if you’re in southern California or anywhere near there? I suggest you take that course with Tj, you will not find. It taught better anywhere on the planet, however if you can’t that. The Nice thing is it’s an NRA? Course you’RE GONNA. Find our instructors around the country who are trained very very well and certified to teach that course, many of whom, by the way are trained and certified by Tj. Johnston because he’s NRA. Training counselors one of the things that he does so you’ll be able to take that course and learn a ton. You’ll also be able to take from. From, probably from that same instructor, the NRA personal protection outside the home course which I’m GonNa. Give you some detail on in just a moment. I mentioned the fact. That I’m a firearms instructor and that I have a company that teaches those things now predominantly what we do is we train security officers in the State of California for their licensing, because like most places they have to be. Be licensed to work, so they have initial licensing. They have to have and then as I mentioned every industry, has it? They have continuing education. They have to complete every year and everything. They do every new thing. They wished to have or carry, or whatever requires additional training, and that’s what we do at practical defense system, so if you’re looking for a job, maybe a luxury job because covert. Covert and you’ve got to find something to do. Remember that security is part of public safety, and it’s considered essential, so if you’re in California and you’d like to get started in the security business. CHECK US OUT AT PD S. CLASSES DOT com. That’s practical defense systems at PD s classes, dot, com, or are. You can just google it saving the Second Amendment one episode at a time. This is the Gun Guy TV pot. The personal protection outside the home course, which is what I’m going to detail for you now is an advanced shooting course. Make no mistake about it. You have to have some advanced skills in order to get through that course and do so well now the first day obviously each day has some classroom time, and that’s very important, because that’s the opportunity not only for you to learn the theoretical things that you need to have in mind, but also for the attorney to come to class to you about the legal aspects and pitfalls of defending yourself while the gun. However the majority of the class on both days is actually shooting. The first day is I would say they call it actually the basic day I’m not so sure there’s anything basic about it, but it’s not nearly as Adrenalin filled or advanced as the second day and what I’m telling you this, I don’t want to frighten you away from the class. It’s doable and you can do it. I know with TJ one of the things he does is he actually has a pre class class, so if you feel that, you’re not ready in your skill level to take this course, you can come take his pre class class and he’s going to. To get you up to speed so that you can get through this course and do it very very well now from what I could understand. Most people who were in the course. That I was in had taken the pre class class I hadn’t done that. I guess I’m a prideful dog, and I didn’t think I. needed it. And as it turns out, I don’t nevertheless some of them apparently dead, so they went and took the pre class class, and they all did very very well now some did better than others, but they all got through the class very well, and they all learned a ton. There was a doctor and his wife. These folks had not were not experienced. Gun people none in fact, very few of the people. In the course. We’re actually gun people. There were a few, but most of them were just honest. law-abiding citizens who do different things for a living who are now concerned about their safety in some of whom had never purchased a gun until recently when they discovered that perhaps having one would be a really. Really. Good idea so there were a lot of the new gun owners that we would see through this whole corona virus. Thing that we hear about all the time, but they were taking this course, so these were not people in many cases who had years and years and years and years of experience they came and took this course, and they did brilliantly with it, so I was very impressed by. By that TJ. A great teacher but I suspect that there are other teachers who do the same thing who have a pre class class that will help you get up to speed for the course. Don’t be intimidated by the fact that the course is challenging, and it is an advanced course. You’RE GONNA. Be Drawing from the whole show with live ammunition. You’re going to be shooting under pressure the first. First Day was not as pressure-filled. You were doing quite a bit of drawing from the whole drawing from concealment learning positive draw stroke so that you don’t put your finger on the trigger until the sites. 00:25:01 – 00:30:04 You’re on target so that you don’t have your finger on the trigger when you re whole sharing your gun, you’re learning how to clear your garment in order to draw your firearm from concealment those. Those are all basic things that need to be learned before you can speed up and you get a little bit in the first day of movement, and when I say movement, you’ve got a little bit of shooting and moving or moving and shooting, you get a little bit of learning to work with cover in the first day, but you spend a lot of time pressure on the trigger and learning. Learning that draw stroke learning to clear the garment and be able to apply some pressure associated with that on that first day. The second day is pretty much all movement. You’re learning to shoot while moving forward. Shoot while moving backward shoot while moving to cover moving to cover and shooting shooting from covers standing shooting from cover kneeling shooting from cover prone. These are all things you’re learning in the second. Second Day of that course you’re learning to shoot from retention, which means you’re drawing from the holster, but you’re not pushing it out in front of you and a standard firing stance instead that gun is tucked in real close to you because that’s where you’re going to have to shoot your attackers in your face. You don’t want him to grab the gun from you, so you’re learning to shoot from. From retention, and once you have that skill down now. The target is coming at you as fast as possible, and you start off at about twenty one feet, having to draw and fire before the targets to you, and then you move closer and closer and closer and closer and closer until you just don’t have enough time to do it anymore. And what each individual student learns is at what. What distance do they not have enough time to draw that firearm? Step out of the way and get one two, three, four or five shots, however, many they get on target from retention that was very useful skill, and it’s a kind of high pressure skill, because you have something coming direct atchoo very very quickly, so it puts you in a as close a position as you could be in to. To real life of having somebody charge you come at you. You’re learning to operate in a three hundred sixty degree environment, because if you’re defending yourself, we don’t operate in a two dimensional environment. We don’t operate where we only look one direction. We have to look for threats everywhere, and we have to learn how to turn and address them whether that threat is to our right to our left behind. Behind US or in front of us and that’s something that you learn in that class. It is a phenomenal class. It really is prepared to do a lot of shooting and prepare to burn through a lot of Emo, but when you walk out of that class, a couple of things are going to happen one. You’re going to have a big smile on your face because this is stuff that most. Most people have never done before. I have to admit I’ve gotten to do all of the things I just described many many many many many times. So what I was looking for is is there a better way? Am I going to learn a better way to do what I’ve been taught to do here? Then I’ve learned before, and in a couple of cases I did I learned a better. Better way to work around static cover. It was just more efficient and more effective than what I learned. Previously I learned a different way to draw that. I’m used to doing I I. Don’t know whether it was better, but it was different, and I found it to be very effective I learned two or three things, which were awesome and what I really appreciated about the class was the personal instruction. Instruction and the number of assistant instructors TJ had there, but also the pressure I appreciated the fact that the class put pressure on me and made me perform under pressure, because that’s when things began to fall apart so that’s the kind of training. You really really need so I. strongly advise if you can not take any other course or even if you can that, you put on the list of. Of courses that you take four your firearm particularly, if it’s a handgun in, you’re carrying it or you using it for home defence the to NRA courses which are the best for that, and those would be nra personal protection inside the home and NRA, personal protection outside the home I have now taken them both and I can tell you from personal experience. They are both extremely good courses and well. Well worth your time and money, and frankly they’re really inexpensive by comparison. You’re not gonNA, spend two or three grand taking these courses you can I mean really including a hotel stay and everything else and Ammo it probably cost me five or six hundred bucks I. You know I’d have to think about it, but probably around there and I did the reloading so I just loaded my own AMMO. it’s not a terribly expensive course to take I’m going to go take the instructor course now and I’ll report back to you maybe at the next podcast and let you know how that went, but I suspect that that’ll be a great course as well. You don’t necessarily need to do that unless you wanNA teach, but certainly go out there and get some training, and if you can get training, that simulates actual fighting and do it. It with an organization that you can trust to do it well, and certainly NRA falls into that category than I. 00:30:04 – 00:31:13 Urge you to do that. You will find I’m sure an NRA instructors somewhere near you who certified to teach these courses remember they are personal protection inside the home and personal protection outside the home, and if you haven’t already completed them I, urge you to do so to say that they’re awesome would be the understatement. Understatement of the century. Well, I think I’ve just run myself completely out of time. have it I so if you’re on Patriot I, want you to stick with me. We’re going to get into the second part of the podcast. I’M GONNA. Explain to you why I think. We should not pay attention to the mainstream media and really look at things the way they want us to. Because they are completely and utterly wrong and I’M GONNA. GonNa tell you exactly how I know that and we’ll get into that the second part of the podcast, which is unpatriotic, only so if you’re on Patriot, stick with me if you’re listening to the podcast cash on favorite podcast player, or you’re watching the version on one of the video distribution points like Youtube. Thank you very much for everything you do have a wonderful week and wherever you go whatever you do, please be safe. You’ve been listening to the Gun Guy TV podcast.

I see that people are really struggling with what’s happening in our country, and they need some encouragement, and that’s kind of what I’m feeling today, said Shit, Sunday, the fifth of July the day after the fourth of July Independence Day. I thought Sunday’s a great time to do that. So that’s what I’m going to do with the first part of this podcast I want to. To warn you now that in this first half of the podcast I’m going to get in the Bible with you and hopefully encourage you now. If you don’t WanNa, hear Biblical scriptures, or you don’t care about that. The now’s your opportunity to stop listening and listened to the next episode when I do it here in a couple of weeks if you want to do that. All right if you’re still with me I assume that you want to hear what I have to say. It’s a wise thing I. think when you look at the world and she looked. World is coming apart at the seams, or at least you feel like it is. If you watch the News, look social media enough. You’ll feel like everything is about to crumble. I, don’t really think it is, but you’ll feel like it is. It is a wise thing to prepare for emergencies. I think it’s a wise thing to do that anyway. Because we have earthquakes and floods and storms and fires and other kinds of natural disasters that hit on a semi regular basis, actually so it’s a really good thing to have extra food in the Pantry, emergency water, and and other provisions like that, maybe some medical provisions and that kind of stuff, and then ability to defend them. and. Keep people from taking them from you. Those are all great things. And if you have watched my channel at all, or you’ve listened to this podcast at all, or you are a member, Patriot on. You know that I do a lot of that. We kind of preference in this house. In a weird sort of way, we have all kinds of preparations available, and that’s why when covid nineteen hit. People were racing around trying to find toilet paper. We didn’t have to worry about that because we had prepared. For. Those kinds of things in advance and I think that’s wise to do as a result, we have all those preparations in place. Certainly we can defend those things. We have firearms. We have armor. We have ammunition. We have all that stuff. But there’s a difference between being prepared for emergencies and the idea of a survivalist term survivalist has always crack me up and don’t get me wrong. I’m not picking on people who call themselves survivalist I’m just pointing something out, and what I’m pointing out to you. Is that in life? Nobody survives. Show. None of us are survivalist. Nobody survives the interesting thing that happens in the progression of things. This is going to sound like I’m being flippant. Which I’m not but I think sometimes the obvious needs to be stated. This is how it works. You’re born. And then you live for a time. And then you die. Now you don’t get to pick where you were born or when you were born and. Unless you do yourself in you. Don’t get to pick where you’re GONNA die when you’re. 00:05:03 – 00:10:06 GonNa die. It’s that’s that’s GonNa happen when it happens. You’re born into the time you’re born in. You’re born into the family. You’re born. You’re born into the country or the area that you’re born, and you’re going to die at some point and when you do unless you commit suicide. You’re going to die in God’s good time, and in whatever way that may be, so nobody gets to the end of this life. And survives. You might be able to survive for a time, but this funny thing called death is going to catch up with you at some point or other. So the idea that we’re survivalist to me, has always struck me as being a little silly preparing for emergencies, preparing for things like the world financial system to collapse. Those are things that I. think it’s worthwhile preparing for, but you’re not going to survive life. You’re going to die. Okay, so I think at some point. We have to prepare for that eventuality. It’s an interesting thing to when you get sucked into the news, and you get sucked into social media, and you become so focused on prepping or so focused on the fact that a disaster may come. You stop living life. You forget that life is an adventure to be lived. And even during difficult times it’s an adventure to be lived. It’s not something that we go and hide in the corner and cower in the corner. Prepare for the worst. Yes, I think it’s good to prepare for the worst, but let’s hope for the best shall we and let’s go out and live life. To the full. How about that? I WANNA share with you in the book of Hebrews. Some things that I. Hope Encourage you today if you’re a person of faith, and even if you’re not a person of faith I think you might find them encouraging, so I’m GonNa go through Hebrews here and before I even start. Let me explain to you that. Hebrews is an interesting book in the Bible all the Bible. Books are interesting, but Hebrews is an interesting book, because it’s focused, is Jesus, even though it talks about a whole lot of other things, but if you were to take the book of Hebrews and just boil it down a little bit, it’s really a book that says Jesus is better. Jesus is better better than everything else, and so it talks about the angels. The angels are awesome, and they’re powerful, and they’re amazing and so on, but. Jesus better and Moses was awesome and powerful and amazing and so on, but. Jesus is better as you read through the book of Hebrews. To See and Hebrews then calls us back to our faith in Christ to focus on him, not angels not principalities, not government, not any of those other things, but instead to fix our eyes and fix our thoughts on Jesus. In fact, Hebrews three one says therefore holy brothers and sisters who share in the heavenly calling. Fix your thoughts on Jesus who we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest. And in Chapter Eleven Hebrews. The writer actually goes through something that is very encouraging. He talks about faith, and what is faith, and here’s some examples of people who were faithful during very challenging time, so I’m going to go through that for you real quick. Hopefully you’ll find it encouraging because right now. You and I are living in very challenging times, aren’t we? So Hebrews eleven verse one says now faith is confidence in what we hope for an assurance about what we do not yet see. We hope for, but we don’t see it. And such. We hope for it even though we don’t see it. And we believe it’s coming that faith, and in verse two. It says this is what the ancients were commended for. For example, it lists whole bunch of them. Birth Street says by faith. We understand that the universe was formed at God’s. So that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. By faith Abel brought God, a better offering than Cain did by faith, he was commended as righteous when God spoke well of his offering, and by faith able still speaks even though he is dead. By Faith Enoch was taken from this life so that he did not experienced death. He could not be found because God. Had taken him away for before he was taken, he was commended as one who please God and without faith. Is it impossible to please God because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists, and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him by faith Noah when warned about things, not yet seen in holy fear Bilton Arc to save his family by his faith, he commended the world and became heir of the righteousness that is in keeping with faith. By faith. Abraham, when call to go to a place, he would later receive as his inheritance obeyed and went even though he did not know where he was going by faith, he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country. 00:10:06 – 00:15:12 He lived intense as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise? For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, who’s architect and builder is God? And by faith even Sarah who was past childbearing age was able to bear children because she considered him faithful who had made the promise? And, so from this one man, and he as good as dead came to send it says numerous as the stars in the sky, and his countless as the sand on the sea shore. All these people were still living by faith. When they died, they did not receive the things promised. They only saw them and welcome them from addition should admitting that they were foreigners strangers on earth. People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own. If they had been thinking of the country, they have left. They would have had opportunity to return instead. They were longing for a better country. Heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God for. He has prepared a city for them. The opinions expressed by the. Always bright unless they’re all. Right now if you listen to the talking heads on the news or you listen to the talking heads I guess I’m one of them Sir so to speak on Youtube or whatever you will hear that more and more people are joining militias now. Personally I don’t think there’s anything wrong with joining militia, but more and more people are joining militias under joining militias because they feel. They got to be part of a group because they won’t make it if they’re not. Because they see other people joining militias on one side or the other of the argument, and I feel like if I’m going to survive, I better be a part of one of these so I’m GonNa. Join the one that closely aligned with the way that I believe so that I can defend myself and other people defend me against the people who maybe don’t believe the way I do. and. That makes a lot of sense. But to one thing they’re not joining in many cases is church. You may remember the just a few minutes ago. I reminded you that nobody survives life. Were born. We live for a time and we die. And no matter how many guns I have, how much munition I have! How much armor I have! How much food and water and medical supplies on all these other things I have no matter which militia join no matter what I do in my life, no matter how hard I think I’m going to work at this, and how dedicated I become at it. I’m not going to survive life. There’s going to come a time when I won’t be here anymore. That is also the case for my wife, my children, my children’s children, children’s shoulders, shoulders, children, and on and on and on. So is it good to do all of those things? Yes, but don’t think it’s going to save you because it’s not. You’re going to die. We all do and I. Don’t mean to depress you with that, but I wanNA. Bring you back if you’re a person of faith to faith. This morning. My wife and I taught a lesson for our Bible Group on marriage. Because we’re we try to help them. Marriage couples and one of the things I explained to them was that. In, the hierarchy of things as delineated in the Bible, my relationship with God is i. my relationship with my wife comes after that my relationship with my children come after that my relationship with my immediate family members come after that mom, you know grandma, whatever and then my relationship with the people in the church after that and then my relationship to the loss, we would call the loss. People who are not Christians come after that we hope that we can bring them to Christ and as long as I maintain that connection in that way it works, but when I mess those up. When I start making my connection to God I in my connection to my God, my my job second and then my wife is a kind of a addition. Third everything starts to fall apart which important that we keep these things in view. In your preparation to pro to make sure that your family is safe and well fed and all these other things. You must remember. That your first priority is your relationship to God and your family’s relationship to God and making sure that you’re focused on him first and then prepare this other stuff. And that’s what I want to bring you back to so that we don’t forget that our relationship with God is primary, always primary. Let’s go back to the scripture again by faith Abraham when God tested him offered Isaac as a sacrifice, he who had embraced the promises was about to sacrifice his one and only son, even though God had said to him, it is through Isaac let your offspring will be reckoned Abraham reasoned that God could even raise the dead, and so in a manner of speaking, he did receive Isaac back from death. 00:15:13 – 00:20:08 By Faith, Isaac Blessed Jacob and Isao. In regard to their future by faith Jacob. When he was dying, blessed each of Joseph Sons and worshiped as he leaned on the top of his staff by faith Joseph, win, his end was near spoke about the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt and gave instructions concerning the burial of his bones by faith Moses. Parents hit him for three months after he was born because they saw he was no ordinary child. And they were not afraid of the King’s edict by faith Moses when he had grown up refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. He. Regarded disgrace for the sake of crisis of greater value. The treasures of Egypt. Because? He was looking ahead to his reward. By faith, he left Egypt, not fearing the king’s anger, he persevered because he saw him. Who is invisible by faith. He kept the Passover, and the application of blood, so that the destroyer of the firstborn would not touch the first born of Israel. By faith, the people pass through the Red Sea as on dry land, but when the Egyptians tried to do so. They were doomed. By faith. The walls of Jericho fell after the army had marched around them for seven days by faith. The prostitute Raha because she welcomed, the spies was not killed with those who were disobedient. And what more shall I say I? Do not have time to tell about Gideon Barak Samson and Jefta about David, and Samuel, and the prophets who through faith conquered kingdoms, administer justice, and gained what was promised who shut the mouths of lions, quenched a fury of the flames, and escaped the edge of the sword, whose weakness was turned to strength, and who became powerful in battle and routed foreign armies. Women received back their dead raised to life again there were others who were tortured refusing to be released so that they might gain even better resurrection, some face, jeers, and flocking and even chains and imprisonment. They were put to death by stoning. They were sought in two. They were killed by the sword. They went about in sheepskin. goatskins destroyed persecuted and mistreated. The world was not worthy of them. They wandered and deserts and mountains, living in caves and holes in the ground. These were all commended for their faith. Get none of them received what had been promised since God had planned something better for us, so that only together with us. Would they be made perfect therefore? The Bible continues in Hebrews twelve therefore. Sense we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses by all of those people. That Hebrews, eleven just listed and many many many many more, who were faithful in the most dire and horrible circumstances who kept their faith and kept their focus. Did Not. Let themselves be pulled away. The politics at the time by the hatred of the time by the persecution of the time, therefore Hebrews twelve says since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sand that so easily in tangles. And let us run with perseverance. The race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and protector of our faith. For the joy set before him, he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider Him who endured such opposition from centers so that you will not weary and lose heart. You may ask why I. Bring this up. Okay well here. It is the second. Amendment to the Constitution is awesome. But Jesus is better. The constitution of the United States is amazing. It’s the most incredible document ever produced by mankind. But Jesus is better and remember the. Bible was not produced by mankind. Men Instead wrote down as they were carried along by the spirit. The United States in my humble opinion is the greatest country on the face of the earth i. m a patriot. I love this country. I’m grateful for this country I honor the flag and the veteran jr who have fought for this country, the men and women who have died for this country I am so grateful to live in the United States it’s hard for me to come up with the words to express that to you and yet, although in my opinion, this country is the greatest country that has ever existed on the face of the earth. 00:20:09 – 00:25:03 Jesus better. Now I personally GonNa vote for Donald Trump you may not I think Donald. Trump has been very good president I think he’s been done an outstanding job. In many ways, there are things I think Necessarily, but that’s the case with every president, but I think he’s been a dynamite president. I loved his speech on July. Third I didn’t see the one on July fourth, but I’ll watch it later. I I hope that he is elected. I think he’ll do a marvelous job, and you may disagree with me. You may think that Joe. Biden is all that a bag of chips. And that’s okay, but regardless of who we pick as president, no matter how much we may have faith in them and think that awesome and be happy with the job we’re doing. Let me remind you that Jesus. Is Better. I may have the guns I want the ammunition. I want a food storage I want the medical supplies I want a place to go to bug out. If I need to bug out, I may have a vehicle that’ll get me anywhere over the top of anything under thing whatever I may have a a no matter what I may have away from my family to escape the tough times and Bill. K. and I provided for all of that and you know that’s awesome. But Jesus better because all of that stuff. is going to pass away. Indeed, so am I. And, so my wife and so are my kids. We’re all GONNA pass away. And a thousand years from now ten thousand years from now a million years from now nobody is going to remember my name. No one’s going to know that I ever existed in the first place. Probably fifty years from now no one will remember me. My kids will until they’re gone and maybe my grandkids. But that’s it. And when they pass away, I’ll just be a name written in a on a piece of paper in a computer in somebody’s genealogy, and they’ll know nothing about me and certainly several hundred years from now, nobody will even care. But Jesus will. Heal no my name. He’ll know everything about me. Just lucky does now. Shooting straight can always right on target. This is the gun guy t podcast. Wouldn’t it be neat to have your name? In the history books on future generations, people would know you were. That’d be really cool. To have your name on Wikipedia so when people search you up, comes your picture and there you. Are you live this time? You died this time and this is what you did when that’d be neat. Neat but let me just remind you that Jesus is better. And that is the essence. Of the book of Hebrews. That’s the essence right there. I do encourage you if you haven’t already done it to prepare for difficult times, I’m of the opinion that things are going to get better, but I suspect that because we’re coming up on an election in which. The country and the world is highly polarized that it’s probably going to get worse before it gets better, and you may be a part of the country where you feel the need or part of the world for that matter where you feel the need to pop smoke as they say, and bug out for a while and come back later. So you ought to have a way to do that I. Think it may come to the point where people are violent enough that you might not WanNa stay in the city that you ran. You Might WanNa bug out, or you might have the power. Go out because of civil unrest, or you might find it difficult to buy things at the store because we’ve had one pandemic and now Dr Fao she. The other day was talking about well. There could be another one. And whether it’s real and actual or you simply for political purposes, it’s still going to affect your life, so is it important to prepare for all of those things, yes. We have in my household. The person your household and we continue to do so we continue to look at what don’t we have that we ought to have? What do we not have in place that we ought to have in place, and to the degree that you have time and space and place and money to do that, you should. Should you join a militia I don’t know. But. You know it could hurt if that’s what you WANNA. Do sure I’m not a member of militia I. Don’t have a desire to join one, but there’s certainly nothing wrong with doing so. But should you focus on Christ? Yes. And if you’ve been pulled away from that. If you’ve lost your focus on the Lord. Then, this is my opportunity. To call you back. This is my opportunity to say to you. Get in your Bible every day. This is my opportunity to lure you. To pray. Not only for the people you love and the people who agree with you, but pray for those who don’t. Pray for enemies. 00:25:04 – 00:29:36 Pray for the leaders of our country whether you like them or not I. Know if you don’t like a person, I’m not a big fan for example of Nancy Pelosi I. Don’t know her personally i. don’t know whether she’s a good person. Bad person personally. I’m not a fan of her policies, but is it good for me to pray for her? Yeah? Yeah. It is in fact. We’re called to do that as Christians so I encourage you to pray for your enemies, and maybe if you get a little sideways, because you’re on social media, lot, or maybe you get a little sideways because you’re looking at the news a lot and you find that you’re on social media and looking at the news more than your in Your Bible. That might be something to look at. And think about. And realized that it’s a good idea perhaps to spend more time fixing your eyes. On Jesus fixing your thoughts on Jesus as it says in Hebrews one in Hebrews twelve to because he is our high priest, he is the author and perfect her of our faith. And if we stop watching him. Then we’re GONNA WE’RE GONNA find ourselves following things. We don’t want to follow and we can very easily drift a long way away. All those people I listed all those people. I read about in Hebrews who are full of faith and commended for their faith. All lived through horribly difficult times. All of them. All of them live through political upheavals. All of them live wars and pasture, Lynch and famine and disease I mean they all struggled and yet. At the end of the day, and at the end of their life. They were commended for their face. So I’m going to put up the list I asked myself about. At the end of my life here’s the questions. I would like to have positive answers to. What kind of a faithful Christian was I. What kind of a husband was I? What kind of father was I? What kind of man was I. And I hope that if anybody ever wants to have a memorial for me, I don’t know whether they will or not or why they would, but if they ever do I hope if somebody asks questions of people who actually know me and they asked those questions. That the answers were will be, he was very faithful. He fixed his eyes on Jesus. He fixed his thoughts on Jesus and no matter what no matter what was happening in the world are in his life. He kept running back to God in everything. He was a good man. Even though man is good, he was a great husband. He loved his wife. and He tried to be a great example to her in faithfulness, and he tried to be a great example to his kids, and he cherish them love them, and if those are the answers that happened at the end of my life, whenever that ends, if it ends today or tomorrow or twenty years from now doesn’t really matter. When it ends, if those are the answers that are given then I have been a success. It doesn’t matter how much money I have, or how many people listen to this podcast or how many people or how many subscribers I’ve got an youtube. None of that matters. None of that is going to exist very long. All of that will crumble to ashes, and the only thing that will be left is Jesus memory of me. That’s what counts. So, if you if you’re a person of faith and you haven’t been in Bible lately well, consider this invitation to return. And if you haven’t been praying lately, consider this invitation to start. And, if you’ve been focused on the world and discouraged and upset and frightened, and so on and worried. Well. Let me. Call you back to a faith. You can be commended for. No matter what happens in this world, no matter what happens in this country, no matter who wins the election or what happens with the constitution or anything else. Jesus is still. Lord God is still God is spirit is still working. The Bible is still the Bible and at some point sometime. Will be with him. Don’t forget that. And don’t lose sight of it. Well I think I’ve run myself out of time for this first half of the podcast. If you’re sticking with me on, Patriot, please do and we’ll start the next half. Otherwise have a wonderful week and wherever you go, whatever you do, please be safe. You’ve been listening to the Gun Guy TV podcast.

Usda prime gun stuff on the Gun Guy TV test. Hi I’m Joel Persinger, the gun guy. Thank you very much for all of your help and support of Gun Guy TV and of the podcast I’m extremely grateful for everything you do, and I know I say that. Every time I started video or every time I started podcast, but it is important for to me least to thank you for the fact that you support me the way you do the fact. That Gun Guy TV’s video youtube channel is growing the fact that even on other channels like bit shoot, and Demille and show on our subscriber base is growing. A little bit is incredible, and the fact that this podcast is growing in listenership is amazing to me. I’m just I’m touched by that I’m humbled by it and I’m super grateful, so that’s why I want mentioned every time listen. This is probably going to be a little bit of a rambling podcast because I don’t really have a plan for it except to express some things that I think need to be expressed in troubled times as a result I’m not gonNA. Talk about the troubled times. I think we talked about that enough, you know. My son was showing me a tick. Tock channel that a young man has done about. And I. Guess He’s a landscaper. These doing this great channel about grass, because it’s something kind of funny and cool, and he could talk about lawns, and he makes it really interesting, and it’s something other than the violence and the hatred and the discord and the civil disobedience and the destruction of public property. That’s going on right now in our world. I really appreciated that so I thought you know I gotTa talk about something else, so we’re gonNA talk about. Some things that are near and dear to my heart and I think that are important, and fortunately, because it is the Gun Guy TV firearms podcast. We’re GonNa talk about firearms related stuff now this podcast is going to be structured in the same way, as I normally do, which is I’ve got the first half hour of the PODCAST, which is publicly available on your favorite podcast player, and then we also attach thumbnail to it and make. Make a video version of it. There’s no video just a thumbnail, but we posted also on Youtube and the other video distribution areas for you, because some people prefer to find it there, but you can also find it on iheartradio apple podcast, Google podcast, Stitcher Pod, bean, and places like that. If you want to download it on a regular basis, you’ll find it there now. One way you can support this podcast if you’d like which costs. Costs you absolutely nothing is. You can use our. Amazon link when you purchase things on Amazon. Amazon is not by any means a gun friendly company, but still a lot of people use it. I know. I do just because of convenience and price and things like that, so if you have Amazon, prime, and it’s convenient for you and you want to Amazon. This is a way for you to pick Amazon’s pocket a little bit and helped. Helped Gun Guy TV fight through the K. Austin survival this mess. You can do that by going to our website at gun. Guy Dot TV gun guide dot. TV, and then on the upper part of the website. There’s a little rectangular banner. That’s a an Amazon shopping banner. It’s not very big, but if you click on that, it’ll take you to Amazon. And that page it takes you to. We’ll have our link in the URL Once it takes you to Amazon. If you bookmark that page and then every time you shop Amazon. If you go back to that bookmarked page to shop Amazon you’re starting off with our Amazon, link effectively in everything you buy on Amazon doesn’t remember. It really doesn’t matter if it’s firearms related or not. We’ll get credit for and we get some marketing credit for we get a little marketing feet doesn’t sound like it will do a lot, but actually it’s quite significant, and it helps out a lot with trying to keep this this podcast go. And keep the channel going because we don’t make a ton of money doing this. It’s not my primary source of income. My goal was just to keep it going so I can keep you informed as to what’s going on in the world. All right having said that generally I. Tell You what I’m GonNa. Talk about in the second half of the PODCAST. That’s going to be on Patriots only for patriotic subscribers, but at this moment I don’t know what I’m. GonNa. Talk about the second part of the podcast like I said. This is kind of an unplanned podcast. Here have really given it. It a lot of thought, and perhaps along the way here as we go through the first part, something brilliant will pop into my my head, one of the three remaining working brain cells in there and come up with something I’m going to talk about in the second half and let you know what that is as we go. Yesterday was father’s Day. So I’m a little bit late in getting this podcast on. That’s primarily because we had kind of an important birthday in our family a couple of days ago and then we had father’s Day. So you know you have the family events. And they tend to to push everything else aside, and that’s what happened here and I think that the same time to i. 00:05:06 – 00:10:02 personally needed a break from producing things for a couple of days, because the in order to produce the gun stuff. I have to keep an eye on current events because one of the things I try to do I’m I’m not as dedicated to it as I, have been in the past, just because time and space in place, but what I try to each day is post some stories that are gun related, or in some way affect our second amendment, one way or the other on our social media platforms on facebook and twitter now. Now, I don’t have a personal facebook account or personal twitter account or any personal social media accounts. I don’t WanNa look at it. It’s too discouraging so I don’t do it, but I do have the business ones for Gun Guy TV, and for practical defense systems, and I try to postings to keep you informed on their each day, and as a result I can sometimes get overwhelmed by the news of the day. The reality is when you look at the news. You just feel like the world is coming apart at the seams, but in reality for us in the person or household, it really has not affected our neighborhood or our town. There haven’t been any riots in our town where we live. There haven’t been any real prominent protests in our town where they live where we live now. They have happened in San Diego, but we don’t live in San Diego. We live in a suburb of San. Diego on the outskirts. There haven’t been any none of that has really occurred here. There’s been no civil unrest here. You can still go for a walk in the neighborhood. You can go to the local store. You don’t have to worry about bumping into any of. Of this stuff, show for US certainly the Chinese virus Kobe. Nineteen thing in California has been kind of tough because you got to wear a mask when you go in a in a business or whatever, and and there for a while we were sort of shut down, and a lot of businesses were shut down, so that part has been difficult, and then we, we haven’t been able to go to church and actually go to church and so many of our. Most of them, I would say are people. We know in church after almost thirty years of attending the same church, so we don’t get to see our friends. And that’s kind of tough to, but other than that. We have not faced the violence or the hatred. Personally that you see in the news every day because we don’t live in an area where that’s occurring, we have neighbors of various different ethnic groups, but we know each other. We are friends. We like each other and we don’t so. We don’t have that kind of thing going on here in. In Our neighborhood people don’t generally see race as the first part of someone, we judge that person if we judge them at all by their actions by their attitudes by their character as Martin Luther, King would say the content of their character rather than the color of their skin or the language that they speak, so we just don’t think that way. As a result, it hasn’t really affected us. So as a result I. Gets me last night. I woke up this morning about three o’clock this morning. I think and I could not go back to sleep. Primarily because woke me up as I had had nightmares about the violence now, not somebody being violent toward me, remember my family just violence the senselessness of it. That I have to look at in the news when I’m trying to post these things for you each day on facebook and twitter. It really disturbed me. I got up. just went ahead and got up came water. I work from home, so I went to my office. Shut down and charter, doing some things for work because I just couldn’t sleep. You read my Bible or whatever and then I went back to bed, and I got some sleep to catch up a little bit for a few hours before I actually went back to work again. But that’s the level to which it troubles me and I am grateful that sometimes people will produce content that has nothing to do. With any of that stuff. I’m extremely grateful for the guy with the rash. Yard, landscaping channel you know. I’ve been watching a lot of camping channels and that kind of stuff because I love to go. Camping loved to go hunting, and we bought a a new wall tent were waiting for it to show up at Kodiak Canvas wall tent, and a few other things, and as thing show up, we get more and more excited about the opportunity to go camping, hunting and Sean. Yesterday? I gave a lot of thought to my dad and to the father figures in my life and the things I learned from them. Now had a number of father figures in my life I had my father. And then my mother and Dad got divorced when I was a a small kid when it was not fashionable to do so in the very early sixties, and then she remarried to a gentleman who was a war veteran from the Korean War, and I think he had ptsd, but it was undiagnosed at the time, so he was a heavy drinker, and then when he got drunk, he was very mean. So he was a tough cookie. He ran the house like a like the staff sergeant. He was when he was in the military, but I did learn a lot from him. Not firearms-related, but I did learn a strong at work ethic from him. 00:10:02 – 00:15:02 I learned a trade from him I came out of high school, knowing a trade and able to start working in the masonry, trade, brick and block trade, and I learned that from Wayne was his name so as As the years have gone by. He’s long since passed away, so my dad, but as the years have gone by been able to to forgive the difficult times I, had with him the things that he did and look at the positive things, I’ve learned from him, and among them was a great work ethic and a trade that I would not have otherwise had the man was an. If there was anything lazy was not one of the things he was. Then my mother later married another gentleman. His name is Kerry. And he has a similar work ethic. The man is extremely hard worker, very dedicated, very faithful, and learned those things from him, but going back to my dad and my grandparents I’m sorry I probably should mention my mom’s dad. His name was Bob. And he was a machinist by trade, and it was a great guy. One of the things I loved about my Grandpa Bob was he could make anything from nothing. Amazing things that guy could put together and discover out a make from absolutely nothing was amazing. It was a talent in that regard. But I also learned some other valuable things from him. One of the things he said to me was. Joel, find something you love to do for a living and do that because you’re gonNA spend eight to ten to twelve hours a day doing it and if you’re miserable. That’s the majority of your life that you’re miserable so even if you make less money at it, and maybe it’s a little bit of struggle as a result, or you have to change the way in which you live because you don’t make as much money. When you could be making more money and be miserable. Make less money and be happy your work. That was a big thing coming from my grandfather because he did enjoy his work, but as you can imagine as a machinist, he never was a rich man. He never made a fortune, but he did enjoy what he did for a living. I learned a lot from that. My Dad was a deputy sheriff. For part of his life and an avid outdoorsman, and it’s from him that I learned to shoot in fact I learned to shoot when I was five. My mother was stunned, but my dad took me out and taught me how to shoot a twenty two rifle when I was five, and shortly thereafter a twenty two pistol and I’m going to tell you more about that in a minute. There are so many new gun owners out there that some of them probably don’t know that if they use that firearm to defend themselves. There is a strong likelihood that they’re going to face criminal prosecution, or at least a criminal investigation, and perhaps a lawsuit filed against them from the person that they shot or the family of the person that they shot. That’s fairly common now. In some states, there are a lot of legal protections for people who defend themselves with firearms, but in many states aren’t. California is one of them. There are some legal protections here in California, but they’re fairly limited. That’s why I have second call defense, and it’s the company I use after having investigated them all. It’s the one I felt the best about and for years I used them, and I referred them to my customers and students without any business relationship with them at all. then they came to me one day and said you know you really should be an affiliate, and I said what do you mean? and. That’s when I became an affiliate with shack and call to fence. So I urge you. If you don’t have concealed, carry or firearms, self-defense type of coverage that will help you get a lawyer. Get bailed out of jail and those things I urge you to checkout second call defense, and if it works for you as it does for me then, if you would be kind enough to use our link to second call defense, I’d really appreciate it. You’ll find that on. On our website at gun guide dot TV, and if you’re looking at or you’re listening to this podcast in a place where there’s actually description of podcast, I’ll make sure the link is in there and that way cost you nothing. It’s the same as the Amazon deal. Every time you pay your bill every month for second call defense then we get a little bit of a marketing fee because we’re. An affiliate and that’s kind of how that works now. If that doesn’t work for you and there’s another company that works for you better for sure, pick the one that’s going to work the best, but if you choose second call, defense had really appreciate it. If you’d use our link, it will help us out a lot at gun guy, TV shooting straight and always right on target. This is the Gun Guy Teapot podcast. Now back to the discussion of learning to shoot at the age of five of course as you can imagine, my mother was not particularly thrilled about that idea, but my dad taught me anyway. My father had moved to Oregon which was a state that when he was alive. He’s been dead quite some years now almost thirty years actually, but when he was around, he loved Oregon He loved Oregon for a few reasons, not least of which is that it’s beautiful, and also that it had many opportunities for him to hunt and fish. 00:15:02 – 00:20:09 He loved the woods. He loved the mountains. He just loved everything about the state. The people were incredibly friendly and at the. The Time Oregon was a very free state. It was not over-regulated. It was not the kind of thing that it is now. Oregon is sort of become like Washington. It’s almost California North back. Then that was not the case. It was very common for me to go. Visit my dad and spend time with him to see people walking around carrying a gun openly. It wasn’t a big deal or having a gun in their glove box. It wasn’t a big deal or carrying a gun concealed. It wasn’t a big deal. That was the norm they’re hunting was the norm there? It was actually so normal that the right to do that and if was just assumed. Nobody was fighting for it because there was no sense in fighting for something that was so obviously correct. That was sort of the attitude in the state of Oregon at the time. Now we’re talking about a time in the early sixties here. And you know late fifties early sixties, and then you know we get into the late sixties and things started to change, and now in the current time Oregon is a very liberal state, when and becoming more and more restricted as we go, but back then it wasn’t and in fact my dad passed away in Oregon and he is buried their. Well one day, he said to me I’m GONNA teach you how to shoot. And he took me out in the back. They lived in Klatch Kaanai Oregon so if you live in class Oregon Hello Class I from my father Chuck Persinger he lived in. Oregon. He was a deputy sheriff there and a resident, defeating that little town, which is just a quaint, beautiful little town with the nicest people that ever walked the Earth Time I. Assume it’s probably the same now. He took me out in the back of the property, and we put some tin cans up on logs back then they were tin cans, not aluminum cans, but we put up on logs, and he taught me how to align my sites how to mount the rifle how to get a good cheek well how to get a good grip and how to breathe. He taught me all of those things when I was five years old. The thing that was the most exciting thing for me that I remember was I actually hit the CAN. With my first shot! which was pretty cool, but then I had a lot of respect for my dad, and I knew he was an incredible shot, and even though I was a little kid, and you know little kids have got answering their pants and they want to go do what they WanNa do I know I’ve raised children and I was one. So that’s kind of how that works even so for that, which was something I really wanted to do. I paid attention I listened even at the age of five, and I vividly remember that lesson. It was an incredible thing to spend that time with my father I didn’t realize I. re I really didn’t I mean now I? Look back and I realized how valuable how precious that was because I meet men, my age or younger men for that matter. Who never really had a father figure in their life, and they never got to experience. Something like that. and. That is incredibly sad when you think of it. So I’m very grateful that my dad spent that kind of time with me. He taught me how to shoot. He taught me how to hunt. He taught me forest type skills. He taught me how to which plant in the area where he lived were edible, and which ones were not now I gotta be honest I. Don’t remember all of that, but it’s interesting. I was just looking at books day. Online on edible plants I’m thinking about getting one because I would like to relearn that. You know you get older and you say well. I used to know how to do that. I WANNA learn how to do it again. In fact, just the other day. My wife stumbled on a a slide rule. And it’s totally unrelated. I realize but like. This is a rambling podcast. She stumbled on a slide rule. We have no idea where this slide rule came from. It was buried under some other stuff on an table in our living room and she said I. Don’t know where this came from, but it’s been here for a long time. We can’t figure out WHO’s that was. It isn’t mind, but I guess it is now. We can’t figure out who was, but I used a slide rule in high school when I got into more advanced math I had to learn how to use a slide rule because there was no such thing as a calculator back then. So that’s what we we used. When I started getting into more advanced math, particularly logarithms and that kind of stuff, it made things a little bit easier because a slide rule whether you know it or not. if I remember my slide rule stuff correctly is that actually use uses logs and anti logs to do the multiplication and division for you? But in any case I sat down the other day, and ahead to fiddle with it for a while, and I actually found an score video on youtube on how to use a slide rule in the CNBC scales and it was like. I remember how to do that. Well now I’m kind of wanting to go back and do the same thing with edible plants, because I learned all that stuff from my dad as a kid, and I remembered it into my twenties, but now I’m in my sixties and I’ve never had to use it during any of that time, and I’ve forgotten that, and it’s just kind of a cool skill to have even though you may never actually use it, but we did. Did use it. We made STU camping on when we were in our hunters camp, and we would go and forage for things they teach me what to get and what it was gonNA taste like this might have a little bit of a nutty flavour, and this might have a little bit of a salty flavor, and we would add that to the stew, and he used to call that forrest STU now. 00:20:09 – 00:25:10 It’s not forrest gump. For a stew and I used to love for Stew with my dad. Now that I would go back to California, because that’s where my mother lived and I’d live with my mom and I’d end up spending time with his dad. My Dad’s Dad, my GRANDPA, his name was Charlie. I spend time with Charlie. They lived in Belmont. Shore which is part of Long Beach California? That’s a very nice area. He was a real estate broker and a real estate investor, and so he’s done very well in his life, he’d only graduated the grade. He grew up in Chandler Indiana and had to quit school right after the fifth grade because his dad, who was a coal miner, broke his back, and he had to go to work to support his brothers and sisters and families. We never got back to school, but managed to still be very successful in his life, and even in the environment of Belmont of Belmont shore, California where it’s a beach community so. Small, you know and the houses are very expensive. He still found a way for he and I to shoot and I’m GonNa tell you exactly how he did it in just a minute as I mentioned at the beginning of this podcast. I don’t make a living off. This podcast are off of Youtube. And if I did I’d be really really broke, but instead I make a living from a company. My wife and I started with some partners and we now having purchased a company the other. We bought out the partners.

My grandfather grappled Charlie was an outdoorsman. He had grown up in Indiana and Chandler Indiana. As a little kid kind of a bear, barefoot country kid of sorts, and so he loved to be out in the woods. He loved to go hunting. He loved to do those things, but he lived in a beach community. Because after many many years of being a welder in the shipyards, and then becoming a welding format in the shipyards, and in ending up working in the navy shipyards during World War Two, in fact, he was so angry because he’d gone down to sign up with his friends at the beginning of the war to sign up for the army. They wouldn’t take him because they said they needed him. In the shipyards to train up a oddly enough to train women how to weld, so he ended up staying home, and many of his friends went to war. Unfortunately, some of them did not return, but he was very upset that he didn’t get to go. In any case he was a welder and a welding for me was a tradesman. My family is basically the history of my family is. We’re all tradesman of some sort or other. So we’re blue collar, folks, we get our fingers dirty in our hands dirty, and we’ll have calluses on her hands and oddly enough I still do even though I. don’t work in trades anymore, but still do work around the House and my son helps me lift weights, so I can actually not get older than I have to. And as a result, my hands are kind of callous and I’m grateful for that. I I never WANNA. Be The guy that’s got super soft hands. Somehow that bothers me not that there’s anything wrong with it. But that’s not the environment in I grew up, but then I once again as I said, it’s not a planned podcast, so I’m beginning to digress. Let’s get back to a GRANDPA Charlie and shooting. At my grandma’s house, which if you ever want to drive by it, you can. It’s at one. Oh, four Argonne in Belmont shore in long, beach now. We don’t own it anymore. He sold it many many years ago, but in that house there’s a house. There’s a unit at the bottom. There’s one at the top, and there’s a little studio in the back and it’s got three garages well. He kept two of the three garages for himself and had the other one that he rented out with the apartment above. In those two garages, he kept his car in one, and he made the other one into a shop because he loves to make things and build things and we’d like to do a lot of woodworking. He’d done so much welding in his life. The last thing he wanted to work on was metal anymore. Enjoy doing woodworking. One Day said to me Joel. We need to do some shooting. And I said Okay GRANDPA. What are we gonNa do we said well? Let’s go grab a bicycle, so we went and got on some bicycles and we went writing down the alleyways of Belmont sure. In the process, we found an old wooden crate. We’ve found some old pieces of Dowell people were throwing away, and we found a guy that just took several days to do this, but over that time we found some ten, and we found a bunch of other little things like that. 00:25:11 – 00:30:02 We brought that stuff back and out of that because he liked to make something out of nothing, you know my grandfathers were both very creative. Guys make anything out of anything. This is the this is the beauty of being a tradesman I think. We went into his shop and he taught me how to take that those little things and make a target out of them so essentially what we did was we stood up the wooden milk crate on its end, so that the open part of that crash was facing the shooter, and then we use the dowels to make Raj across the crate. And we took little pieces of ten and cut them into shapes, diamonds, squares, circles, and some rudimentary animals wants those were carved. They were maybe I don’t know two inches tall, and you know two inches wide or something about that size, and we made sure that we left enough ten on the top that we could wrap that piece at ten on the top around the Dowell. So we wrap it around the Dell which by the way we took a long piece of Tin, and we, we tightened it wrapped it around the inside of the Dow and tighten it down real tight, so basically you had the wooden dowell with a ten covering, and then the little piece of Tin with the with the figure attached to that around the Dowell, and we scored the the underlying ten along the way so that they wouldn’t move right to left. They would just spin. Will there were I? Think three rows of those from top to bottom. When you hit him, they would spin, so you knew you hit them. They’d spend over the top of come back down again. They were little reactive targets. We made out of absolutely nothing from there. We went down and bought a piece of big piece of plywood. He set the plywood up against the wall in his little tiny courtyard next to his house outside of his office, he set the plywood up against the wall and I would go outside with a co two BB pistol. And he would teach me how to better shoot a pistol in that backyard with this little co, two BB gun. Many many years later, he was in his eighties and he was. His health was not good. He was eighty seven I. Think and he said Joel. I’ve got something for you. I was visiting at that point. He’d sold that place and he was living in Sun City Arizona. He said I’ve got something for you. We went out in the garage and he handed me that BB pistol. Weeks right now. It’s an old crossman pistol, but if I can ever find the little that goes in and I’m. GonNa. Fix It. Because that was the BB pistol that my grandfather taught me how to use as a little boy? It was largely my grandfather spending time with me with a little bb pistol in the backyard to make me a better pistol shot. That is the reason why I can shoot pistols as well as I can today. I’m not. A competitive shooter, certainly there are people in the world that shoot better than me, but when it comes to handguns, that’s a fairly small number. I’m a better shot with handguns than the vast majority of people I have ever met. Now that not saying that to be to build myself up or Brag. It’s just some things your faction. You have to stay them as facts. That’s a fact and I will tell you that that’s because of that practice I got continually. At my grandfather’s house has he and I shot in the back and he helped me be a better pistol shot with a BB pistol. That’s why sometimes you’ll see me talking about training in your backyard. When I’m doing videos talking about doing that I learned to do that from my Grandpa Charlie, who is one of my father figures when I was a boy? Now then I would go visit my dad for the summer and spend my summer with my dad up in Oregon and he would remark at how much my shooting improved and WanNa, know what I had been doing that. My shooting had improved so much since the previous year when I saw him. And My grandfather would wink at me and he’d look at my dad needs say don’t give away secrets. Sneaky cuts that when I wasn’t around, he would tell my dad what he was, but it was something I really anticipated, and hoped for every year when I would go see my dad that he might remark about the improvement in my shooting. So I’ve worked pretty hard at it I really had a great time with my grandfather anyway, but it was one of the favorite things I did with my granddad other than we used to walk down to the beach and we go to the long. Beach pier at the Old Long Beach pier before it was torn down. There used to be a restaurant most almost all the way to the end that had the best New England clam chowder in the world to this day. I absolutely love New England plan chowder. What my point in all of this, it’s important that we have father figures in our lives who take time to teach us these valuable skills. They’re the things will remember later when they’re gone. And maybe it’s a dad. Maybe it’s brother older brother. Maybe it’s an uncle. Maybe it’s a GRANDPA. When we don’t have those or something missing in our childhood, it’s a very valuable thing that’s missing. 00:30:02 – 00:31:34 Sometimes when I see young people now and their troubled, or they’re struggling particularly young men. They’re struggling with the idea of what it means to be a man. What it means to be a contributing member of society as a man, I’ll talk with them and we’ll talk for a while and I’ll ask them some questions, and it doesn’t take very long before discover that they had no meaningful father figure in their life. That is a tragedy. Having had outstanding father figures in my life. I can tell you that it’s the way God designed it, and when it doesn’t apply when we don’t apply things in the way God designed them. They don’t work the work well at all. Well with that run at a time I think in this section of the podcast. I told you that. By the time I got to the of the podcast, I would know when I was going to talk about in the next section. That’s going to be on patriotic only well here. It is in this next section. I’m going to talk about what I did to pass these things along to my kids and how we? We did that and how my kids are doing with that today. We’ll talk about that in the next section. If you’re listening on Patriot I, want you to stick with me. If you’re listening on your favorite podcast player I’m GonNa. Wrap it up here. So think about those father figures in your life, and if you’re a man, be a father figure to someone else wherever you go, whatever you do, please be safe.

It’s time for the Gun Guy TV podcast. Hi this is Joel Singer I’m the Gun Guy Thank you very much for all of your support on Gun Guy TV, and for the support of this podcast I am forever grateful I know I say that the opening of every podcast every video, but it’s because I wanna make sure that you know how deeply I appreciate the fact that you watched my videos and listen to this podcast I’m very. Very very grateful that you do. If you didn’t as I’ve said many times I just be talking to myself. Look this time around. I have a few things to talk about I. Don’t want to get into the whole riot looting nonsense because you get enough of that when you’re looking at the news for crying out loud I’m so inundated with it and I’m so tired of it I could. I can scream. I feel kind of the same way about the COVID. Nineteen thing and I’m sure you do too so as a result now that I’ve mentioned both I I regret it and I’m not going to mention them anymore. In this part of the podcasts as usual, the PODCAST is split into two parts. This first part is available for free on your favorite podcast player, and will also post a video version of it means just got a thumbnail and playing as an audio thing, but it’s a video version on. On Youtube and the other syndicated video platforms. It’s an interesting thing that has come up during all of this. Essentially we’ve. We’ve gone through two disasters. One right after another. You wonder which one’s going to come next in the process. Though it’s caused me to think a lot about how feel about my country I’ve heard a lot of people say they are ashamed to be. Americans have heard a lot of people say that they wish. The United States was very different I remember. Barack Obama wanting to fundamentally change the country. And I got to thinking about what my view of the country is. The more I thought about it more. It made me think of a movie which is a favorite of mine. The wind and the lion is a story about Teddy Roosevelt the way handle the situation Morocco back in the early nineteen hundreds in that movie. There’s a scene in which Brian Keith. Who Plays President Roosevelt is having a conversation with a reporter while leaning up against a tree, a hunting camp. His words Echo my feelings about this country. So I’ll let you listen to them. Here they are. American grizzly bear. The symbol of the American character. Strength. Intelligence for us. Little Blind and reckless at times. Courageous all out. On one of the trade goes previous. And that Mr President Loneliness. Bear lives out his life alone. Indomitable. conquered. But always alone. Is No real allies, only enemies, but none of them are as great as he. You feel this might be an American trait. Certainly. World never love us. They respect us. US! Whenever love us. We have too much audacity. And we were. Was At times to. I brought this clip up. Because I have been of the conviction for quite some time that no matter what we do as a country. The world has never gonNA love us. I don’t even know if what is said in that scene can actually be attributed to Teddy Roosevelt or not, or whether it was just creative, writing on the part of the scriptwriters, but one way or the other that I think it captured the essence of the truth. And that is that the United States has never been loved by other countries. As far as I know, we’ve been taken advantage of a lot and I think our current president is right when he talks about that, and certainly we’ve done a lot of things for other countries. It’s not at all to say that other countries haven’t done things for us. That’s true, too. But, nevertheless we are taking advantage of a lot of a lot and I think in many cases. It’s frustrating to me is an American when? I see other countries. Take take, take take from us, and then complain about us and tell us how terrible we are I’m so tired of that being told to us by European countries, I could scream I’m tired of hearing that from every one of our allies. It seems I’m tired of hearing that from well our enemies, I expect to say that, but our allies you finally get. GET TIRED OF PEOPLE CRITICIZING US on American I’ve traveled to other countries, not a lot of them, but you know I’m having only been in the united. States and I can tell you that in the countries I’ve been. Americans are sometimes looked down upon. People don’t necessarily like people from the United States. Now that, maybe because perhaps US tourists have been obnoxious or something I don’t know. or it could be. The phages don’t like our policies, but they’re certainly happy to take our money, and they’re happy to take our help, so I think that scene. 00:05:02 – 00:10:20 Echoes my feeling about this country first of all. I am an American. I’m not ashamed of my country. I’m proud to be an American I’m grateful to have been born in the greatest country in the history of the world. I’m grateful to have the the rights afforded to me and protected by our united. States constitution, which is a document unique in human history. It’s a document that. Clearly states that the government is actually for the people of the people by the people for the people as opposed to other documents to Magna Carta included which talk about the government, I and how it Lords. The people. That the government is in charge, and the people are not in our constitution. It is precisely the reverse now. It has turned out in practice. That the evils of government have taken a lot of rights away from the people in this country, and that needs to be rectified. Still even with that having occurred. In my humble opinion, having been to some other places, this is still the best country in the world. And you would be hard pressed. To convince me otherwise. Some of the reasons we find ourself in the ourselves in that fix. Really were foretold by our founding fathers Thomas Jefferson for one I will tell you a little bit more about that in just a minute. If you’re listening to this podcast, you’re a great supporter of gun guy. TV and I’m very grateful for everything you do I. Urge you to take a look at helping us through Patriot. Patriotic as a subscription service where we provide additional content to you then that you won’t see anywhere else. You’RE NOT GONNA. Find it here. You’re not gonNA find it free. It’s only on Patriot. An example of that is the second half of this podcast, but there also is a video podcast. I do twice a month or our exclusive videos behind the scenes pictures behind the scenes post. And a lot of other things that I post up their. Advanced looks at some of the things that I’m going to review. I just posted an advance. Look at the product I’m going to review yesterday. So I urge you check it out. Check US out on Patriot. On and help Gun Guy TV survive the chaos. The opinions expressed by Lagoon Guy are always right unless they’re all. Back the time of Shepardson in our founding fathers would probably come as no surprise to you that a lot of quotes attributed to our founding fathers. If you do web searches on him, you’ll find entire websites and discussion boards, and other things specifically dedicated to that. I’m not entirely sure that all of the things that are attributed to them are actually things they said or wrote, but I did find a few that I found interesting. However, having not been a history, major or an historian, I may be wrong as to whether they are attributed to that person, but I’ll read them to you anyway. Couple of them here because I find them quite interesting. I mentioned that our government has gone sideways on a lot of ways and taken over. Authority from the people that the founding fathers I believe just in reading the things that they wrote the federalist papers and the discussion going back and forth. Never intended our government to do it I don’t think the founding fathers ever intended our government, state or federal to have the kind of power over the people that are currently does, and I’m of the opinion that if they were to come back today, if somehow they came out of their graves today and saw what our government is today, they would be incredibly appalled. However I’m not one of them and I wasn’t there so I could be wrong. What leads me to? This is some of the things I read about them for example. This is a quote. Attributed to Thomas Jefferson which is I think very interesting. It says we in America. Do not have government by the majority. We have government by the majority who participate. That’s a a really prophetic statement coming from a person who’s been dead for a very very long time, and was around during the founding of our country, and then later became the third president of our country. To say that we live in A. How did he say we live? We have a government by the majority who? Participate. Now on social media if you go on social media and make a political comment, there are all kinds of people who participate, but when it comes to actually managing the government. Very few people show up to vote percentage. What very few people write letters to their senator or congressman? Very few people show up to vote for little elections that they don’t realize our important for example, the guy that you’re that’s running for Dogcatcher is later going to run a run for city council or school board, and is later going to become the mayor of your town or city, and his later going to be running for your state assembly or your state Senate and later going to be running as governor, and may one day and the president of the United States or a US senator. 00:10:21 – 00:15:04 But because you didn’t bother to pay attention when that individual was running for dog Catcher, and saying absolutely stupid, idiotic things with which you disagree. Now, you have a congressman, a senator or a president with whom you disagree and now they have a lot of power so I. WanNa read that quote from Thomas Jefferson again. We in America, do not have government by the majority. We have government by the majority who participate. If you, don’t participate in your own government. But YOU WANNA, complain and whine about it on social media or in the streets. You are wasting your time and effort. You could have participated in your government, and then you wouldn’t have as much to whine and complain about now. I hope you realize that my comments are not aimed at you. If you vote all the time, and you study the issues, and you actually try to do your civic duty that obviously I’m not speaking to you. If anything I’m probably voicing the frustration, you feel yourself. However, there are a number of folks out there who do not vote and yet WANNA complain about the result afterwards, and as a Youtuber I can tell you I hear it all the time, and then I’ll ask people if they for, and they’ll say they don’t vote because they don’t think it’s worthwhile, they don’t. They wasted time I have a neighbor whom I love dearly I think he’s a great guy. I don’t know two or three four years ago. He was complaining about. Somebody I don’t remember who might have been Barack Obama. When he was in office, I have no idea so that would have been four years ago and change. And I said well. I get it I understand. He was complaining about the gun. Laws in California and some other things that I totally get it I really understand you know. It’s important that you vote for the right people. And if we all do that, maybe we’ve got a shot at making a change and he said Oh. I. Don’t vote. I what do you mean you don’t vote? He said now I’ve never voted. This guy’s in his fifties i. should you have never voted? He said I’ve never voted. I never registered to vote. I have to pause here. Sort of the. What you might call the the dramatic pause here because. I was stunned. Now I’m a guy. Was So eager to vote the first time. That I registered right away and I voted because it was a presidential election that I got to vote in and I thought that was really cool. I wanted to do that so I studied out the issues, and I voted the whole chicken ballot and my entire life. I have gone to the point of doing the research to know which judges devote for and who to vote for for dog, Catcher, or whatever, and sometimes I can’t find information on a given individual, but I tried to get the information every time. That’s what I’ve done my whole life now in one case I think I was down with pneumonia and couldn’t get up and so that’s the one time. That I have at voted, but other than that. I voted my entire life and I’m in my sixties. Not Everybody’s done that I. Get it some people have, but to go your entire life and not vote is your choice if you want to do what he does. But in my humble opinion, don’t get to walk around and complain about it afterwards. If you’re not going to take action, so let me read that quote to you again from Thomas Jefferson. We in America do not have government by the majority. We, have government by the majority who participate. So, if only twenty percent of the populace votes than the other eighty percent are suffering under the policies of the majority of that twenty percent because they didn’t bother to vote, that’s why for many many decades people have talked about this silent majority. Because at silent majority doesn’t participate. They whine. They complain they lament. They carry on, but they don’t participate and maybe what they don’t understand. Is that without their participation? They are going to be victimized by the majority of the minority that participate. That’s how it works. So, if you can urge your friends who are gun owners to actually go vote and vote for their rights and actually get to the voting polls I tell you something now. This is really. I know I’m on a little bit of a rant. Here I I apologize, but it’s my podcast, so I guess I could rant if I want. One of the things that really drives me absolutely crackers. 00:15:05 – 00:20:04 Is the fact that we have to go out and hunt people down and put them on buses or cars, or whatever to take them to the polls to get them to vote, because they’re to stink and lazy to get in their own car, or get on a bus, or get on a trolley, or whatever and go to or walk or ride their bicycle to go do their civic duty, and actually participate in their own government, but Tara happy to get on social media and whine and complain or standard with a beer, the barbecue and whine and complain to their neighbors about the policies and the taxes and the other things they hate. They won’t get off their dead Lazy Fanny and go and vote and participate. Oh my gosh, that just frustrates tired of me as I’m sure you can tell as a populous. To keep our rights. Then, we must participate because there are a lot of folks who are eager to participate who don’t want you to have your. They don’t want you to have your first amendment. Right to express yourself and they don’t want you to have your second amendment. Right to defend yourself all right now. Look I said I wasn’t going to talk about the riots, but I am going to point this out to you. The protests that were peaceful are still going on in, San. Diego yesterday we had thousand people or more thousands of people march peacefully through San Diego and they are making their point. And I believe that Bhai virtue of that there are going to be changes for the better. They’ll be changes I hope they’ll be for the better, but there will certainly be changes by virtue of a thousand people walking through the city this morning I was reading news, and out of that thousand people one got arrested and he didn’t get arrested because he was unruly, he got arrested because he was shining a light laser at the helicopter. You can blind the pilot and the helicopter crash. That’s a felony, so he got arrested for that good because dangerous. But other than that. The police said the pot. The the protest was peaceful and uneventful from a law enforcement perspective, and that’s as it should be. What happens when you have people who get into a protest like that who have in their minds, their sole objective of causing violence on fomenting violence and disruption and looting, and so on and working the idea of the crowd mentality of stirring up the crowd to be violent, their goal is not to further express the crowds, thoughts on an issue or make a change or encourage the first amendment rights of that crowd. Their goal is to get exactly what they do. Get a heavier police presence the National Guard. And essentially depending on WHO’s president at the time, or whose governor at the time an opportunity to shut down the First Amendment Rights of the people who are trying to protest. So. There’s a whole cadre of folks out there who want to destroy this country and want to destroy rights. And if we don’t participate in our own government. Those folks most assuredly will, and they will be the majority who participate. and. We will have government by the majority of the minority. So if that’s you, are you know somebody who doesn’t participate? Then please go get a cattle prod and jam it in their rump, and get them up and get them going so they will participate in their own government now I’ve got a couple more quotes for you, and we’ll get to those in just a moment. Obviously it takes time, energy and money to make this podcast fly and to keep. Keep it going so I’m continually asking for your support and I know you probably hate that and would like to shut up, but I’m not gonNa because I gotta pay for all this, so I’m GonNa.

This is the done guy TV podcast. To further illustrate the fact that having a country where in your freedoms remain, intact requires your effort. Thomas Jefferson also wrote I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them, unquote in those two quotes I’ve read you one talks about those who participate which requires time. And effort. And Research. And doing something other than playing video games and watching television or sitting around beer. The other one says I predict future happiness for Americans if they Americans if they. Can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. It’s the American people who have to restrict the government and keep the government from pretending. To Take care of us while it takes away our freedom. I am sick and tired of Americans who want to give up liberty for a false sense of security? A false sense of security will not give you you, will you? You will lose your liberty if you’re all about feeling secure because the government is going to take care of you right now, there’s a push to de fund to the police I. Don’t with that because I think we need a police department. What I would like to see those I would like to see the government back off of Americans ability to defend themselves and take care of themselves instead of prosecuting every law-abiding American who defends him or herself against a criminal? And then at the police want to work on the criminal satisfied, but stop making criminals out of law abiding. Americans, but I do not think it’s a good idea to de. Fund the police. Nevertheless it is up to us as American citizens to ensure that our government does not overstep its bounds on a regular basis and in order to do that I. Think at some point you have to fall in love. Now, that’s going to sound like a strange name. You got to fall in love. You can’t fall in love with the government because the government is not gonNA. Love you back. You’ve got to fall in love with the concept of liberty. You have to love the idea of freedom. You have to desire. In every fiber of your being the freedom to choose. The freedom to say what you wish, an express your views. The freedom to worship, as you wish or not at all if you don’t want to worship at all. The freedom to defend yourself and your loved ones and your neighborhood, if necessary, and have the tools with which to do that the freedom to live securely in your home, and not have the government take over your home for the purpose of using it for the government by the way that’s the third amendment to the Constitution right there. In case you don’t know the freedom to be protected from abuses under the cover of authority. That’s what these protests are all about. Is Abuse under the cover of authority. Unlawful searches and seizures unlawfully stopping someone just because you don’t like the fact that they happen to be a different color in that neighborhood. Those things are wrong and they violate the fourth amendment to the Constitution. These rights. These protections that defend and protect our liberty are written into the bill of rights. Because our forefathers Thomas Jefferson found them to be vital. They had run away from tyranny, not only from the British government. But from the Church of England, because most of these folks who left and came to this country to get away from them wherever Protestant a Protestant type of belief and the Church of England was decidedly Catholic and it really is treated them. They left that so that they could believe as they wished, they could express their views as they wished, and they could defend that right. 00:25:03 – 00:30:01 And that they would not be subject to unlawful searches, unreasonable seizures, and those kind of things, and that’s why they wrote all that into the bill of rights. You have to fall in love with the desire to be free, and the actual practice of freedom understanding that freedom and liberty come with responsibility and effort. You have to work for it and when you have it, it requires that you do a little bit more work because other people aren’t doing it for you. Tom Chevron famously wrote I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences, tending to much liberty than to those attending to small a degree of it. At some point, we have to understand that it’s not just the rights of few that stand in the balance in this the liberty of all Americans that we’re fighting for what are that in court? Or whether that’s at the ballot box or whether that’s peacefully marching in the street. That’s what we’re doing. That’s what I’ve been doing for a lot of my life. That’s what guys like Rick Travis at the California rifle and Pistol Association or doing. That’s what guys like Sham Peres had gun. Owners of California doing. That’s what guys like Chuck Michelle at Shell and Associates who are doing. That’s what guys like Erick at gun owners of America or doing and and Jordan at gun, owners of America, and these great guys who are who are patriots who? Who are fighting for your rights? That’s what these folks are doing. That’s what the folks that are you here on other podcasts and other youtube channels to talk about the second amendment. That’s their focus. That’s what they that’s what they care about. In many cases, gun channels like mine are not really gun channels as much as they are Second Amendment and Bill of Rights Advocacy Channels Yeah I’m the gun guy and I do review guns, and I do those things sure. But in my heart of hearts. I’m an American. I love this country. I’m not at all ashamed to be the citizen of the United States that I am. I’m not ashamed of the United States at all. I’m proud of my country. Are we perfect? No, we might be a little, blind and reckless sometimes. And we have too much audacity. But we’re still a greatest country in the earth and. I believe that heart and soul. We’re also the place where you have the most freedom, even though we’ve lost a lot of it and we can’t give up on fighting for that freedom so I urge you get involved. Do not be one of those people who sits back and does nothing but whine and complain. Vote. Write your congressman. Write your senator and I know you’re going to send me notes or read them all the time and I never never. They never responded. Never get it. I do I honestly get it? If you live in California, it’s an uphill battle. If you live in one of these liberal bash states, it’s an uphill battle, but it’s still a battle and uphill battles have been one many times. Look Throughout History San, Juan Hill might be an example for you considering on talking about Teddy Roosevelt little earlier there with Brian Keith planted. Uphill battles can be one, but we cannot shrink away from them. We have to keep charging forward. We have to keep trying and we have to try to recruit other people as best we can. I’M GONNA. Leave you with the last quote here. Which again I I was picking on Thomas, Jefferson today so I, gotTa let quotes from him although I was also reading quotes from. Many other of our forefathers this morning, including our first President George Washington, who had some great quotes, but he’s spoken a kind of erode particularly in a different. Style of English at sometimes you have to really think about it, and it doesn’t necessarily carry over an audio podcast so while some of his quotes are awesome. I didn’t use them today because they weren’t as plainly written, but this one is from Thomas. Jefferson and here’s a quote. The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants. They serve rather to encourage them to prevent homicides for an unarmed man, maybe attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. If you really think about that and I really have. It applies on the street. Sure it applies in the marketplace. Sure it applies in your car. Somebody’s trying to your car. Sure it applies in your home. If, somebody’s trying to break in or burglarize your home. It applies in your business. If Somebody’s trying to rob you at applies all over the place on those one on one battles between criminals and law abiding citizens. But here’s where it also applies, and this is where we forget. It also applies with our government. An UN armed people may be attacked with greater confidence, then an armed people. 00:30:02 – 00:31:24 An unarmed people may be oppressed with greater confidence than an armed people. And unarmed people may have their rights stripped from them with greater confidence by a tyrannical government, then armed people. We must never forget that. So I urge you. Get involved. If, you’re not already get involved if you’re already involved and get a little bit more involved or encourage others to do it. Don’t lose heart. You are not alone. I’m with you. And a lot of other people are too. And they could use your help. Well that’s the end of this part of the podcast and the next part which will be on Patriot. Only I’ll talking about preparing for pandemics and civil disobedience, and how well prepared were you? I don’t know, but I’m GonNa tell you how well prepared I was and some lessons that I’ve learned in the next part of the podcast only on Patriots, so if you’re unpatriotic I, want you to stick with me. Otherwise I’m going to wrap up here. Thank you very much for listening. Have a wonderful week and wherever you go, whatever you do, please be safe. You’ve been listening to the Gun Guy TV podcast.
