Gun rights will be the focus of two national radio programs today, with this correspondent among the featured guests.
“Tom Gresham’s Gun Talk Radio” will air today from 2 to 5 p.m. Eastern time. Guests will include tactical trainer Greg Lapin, Dan Hathaway of the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation, the Second Amendment Foundation’s Alan Gottlieb, Tiger McKee of Shootrite Firearms Academy and industry executive Ray Oeltjen.
I’ll be joining the program in the second hour at 3:30 to talk about the current “gun control” feeding frenzy and what we can do to not only stop it, but to actually make gains.
Later this evening I’ll be joining host Mark Walters on “Armed American Radio,” airing from 8 to 11 p.m. Eastern time. Marks guests will include author Alan Korwin and Charles Heller from Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership.
I’ll be coming on during the 10 p.m. “Roundtable” discussion, where we’ll also be joined by “Newschick” Val DeOre, producer Sean “Seanto” Young, and maybe, if he can break free from other commitments, firearms authority (the good kind) George “Mad Ogre” Hill.
I hope Gun Rights Examiner readers can tune in to any or all of these programs and will spread the word so others can, too. With most of the media doing a full court press to control the narrative, it’s important to take advantage of a megaphone every time one is handed to us.
And don’t make the mistake of dismissing such efforts as preaching to the choir. One of the strategies the anti-gunners are employing is “divide and conquer,” so that Dianne Feinstein specifically exempts certain “sporting rifles” in her “assault weapons” bill to make some in the shooting community feel like this is not a fight they need concern themselves with, as if scoped “sniper rifles” won’t be next on the menu.
In “The Odyssey,” the “gift” the Cyclops Polyphemus promised Odysseus is that he would be eaten last. We need all the hands we can muster to lift and drive a burning stake into the eye of any monster who would presume to control, let alone consume any in our band.
That's why, even if you can't make the time to listen in, it's important for you to share this information with those who may be able to.
UPDATE: The Gun Talk archives have now posted today's program in case you could not listen live. I'll put out a notice tomorrow on my War on Guns blog when tonight's Armed American Radio program is archived.
