The ATF admits in their most recent "ruling" that ARs are one of the most common rifles in America. And according to the Heller Supreme Court decision, they've made it clear that "commonly used firearms" are covered by the 2nd Amendment. And we quickly cover the acting ATF director being demoted. Our main topic is the Government is Not Your Babbysitter! And we close out with talking about the Army's new choice for carbine rifles and machineguns from Sig Sauer.

And how can we prepare ourselves to lessen any effects on us? Then we have a conversation about "radicals." What is a radical, and who are they really? Are we radicals? Turns into a great conversation. Then we talk a little about Mike Tyson punching a guy on an airplane and we come to the conclusion, many times people need to be punched in the face. And lastly, we close out the episode by talking about all the Russian oligarchs who just happen to committing suicide.

Welcome to episode 75 of the LSLF podcast! We sip on this weeks whiskey of the week, called 2 Gingers, as we dive into the Canadian Freedom Convoy currently happening up north.

Yes, it's just as outrageous as it sounds, and Johnson makes his feelings on the case, and ATF in general, well known. Then we lighten it up a bit, as we talk about scientists who've made some 'robots' that are self reproducing, and question not if, but when, AI will destroy humans., and the topic gets quite interesting!

Welcome to episode 74 of the LSLF Podcast, the podcast where we talk all things Freedom! Our Whiskey of the Week this week is Larceny, a 92 proof straight bourbon whiskey.

The Signal app is an encrypted messaging and phone call app, and they're debating adding anonymous cyrpto payments, but of course the govt wants to outlaw that. But on a bright note, six more states are pushing for permitless carry of firearms, which would put over half the country under constitutional carry. And we end the show talking about why it seems they're are so many more concealed carry/offensive type classes as compared to home defense classes. 7.55 Whiskey of the week, Larceny 17:17 Supreme court shoots down vaccine mandate 36.08 Six more states for Constitutional Carry this year? 54.05 Signal and encryption 1.04.55 Home Defense vs Carry Classes
