Episode 11

without comments

It’s been a while and for that I’m truly sorry. But alas I’ve been busy and yadda, yadda, yadda. The good news is I’m going to change the format of this shop up a bit so I can actually get episodes out to you guys in a timely manner. With that said this episode is short, sweet, and to the point. It’s also poorly executed since I didn’t write a script, think it over, nor do any other form of planning which I should have done. Sorry about that but the next episode will be better. I’d say I promise but I’ve been breaking promises left and right recently so my word probably isn’t good for much with you guys. Anyways enjoy the episode and expect a real one soon.

Truth About Guns Mentioned in Latest JPFO Alert

without comments

First if you came here via the link in the Jews for the Preservation of Firearm Ownership e-mail alert note that this isn’t the site with the article you’re looking for. But I do urge you to give my podcast a listen if you’re interested in arguments to use against the anti-gunners. This podcast, like many other pro-rights podcasts is a member of the Gun Rights Radio Network. Also I’m going to drop a mention of my blog called A Geek with Guns which is also gun related.

OK shameless plugs are over (Hey I’m going to use all this additional traffic for some good) for everybody else it appears as though my podcast has hit the big time. I’ve been mentioned in the latest Jews for the Preservation of Firearm Ownership e-mail alert. Of course the mention was entirely inadvertent. Here is an exert from the alert:

America’s Aggressive Civil Rights Organization

March 5th 2010


We recently received an article from -The -

It takes to task a sloppy and incomplete article by a leftist
Israeli newspaper about gun ownership.

Share it with an anti-gunner this weekend. You will be glad you

So an accidental space between “The” and “” nabbed me some free publicity. And I did check to ensure I had my domain before the other site and it appears as though The Truth About Guns started in February of 2010 while I started in 2009 so I have precedence. Does that matter at all? Not in the slightest to me but it’s always nice to be in a position where I don’t have to worry about changing my URL due to possible legal issues.

Either way I just thought that this was funny and I’d share it.

Episode 10

with 3 comments

You know the Brady Campaign is against your civil rights. Well in this episode we dissect and article penned by none other than Dennis Henigan of the Brady Campaign. In his article is claims that those appears on the “terrorist watch list” should be stripped of the civil rights. That is what this episode argues against, stripping citizens of their rights simply because their name appears on a secret government list.

Mayor Steve Lampi of Brooklyn Park

without comments

The office of Steve Lampi has been very good to fill my information request in a timely manner. They’ve done an outstanding job providing all information between Mayor Lampi and Mayors Against Illegal Guns. I haven’t read through everything yet but I’m going to post what I have received. The documents linked here are not descriptively titled which I apologize for. I’m going to leave the document titles as I received them until such a time I can come up with a decent filing system and naming convention. Anyways here’s what I’ve received so far:

Minnesota Mayors Against Illegal Guns

without comments

Sorry it’s been so dead on this site recently but life has been hectic. I won’t both you with the details but I will bring to light a project I’ve been working on. We all know the organization Mayors Against Illegal Guns is a deceptively named organization that is actually Mayor Bloomberg’s personal crusade to disarm the American populace. Of course this organization is also fairly secretive with little information given publicly.

Thankfully there are laws similar to the federal Freedom of Information Act in every state. Since I live in Minnesota I decided to use our law to extract as much information about the organization as I can from Minnesota mayors whom are members. There are five Minnesota mayors in the coalition:

Mayor Steve Lampi of Brooklyn Park
Mayor Elizabeth B. Kautz of Burnsville
Mayor Don Ness of Duluth
Mayor R.T. Rybak of Minneapolis
Mayor Chris Coleman of St. Paul

I have sent requests to each of these mayors and am planning on posting all retrieved data on this site as well as my blog. There are two main goals to this project. Goal one is simply to find what information the coalition is sending to its members. The second goal is a little more complex.

We know many mayors don’t know the actual purpose behind Mayors Against Illegal Guns. This is known because may mayors have left once it was made apparent that the coalition isn’t against illegal guns alone, but guns in general. This lead me to believe the correspondences being sent to members are as carefully worded as information that is publicly released. If this is so this information could help us better fight Bloomberg’s little posse.

Periodically I’ll post information retrieved. Everything I receive will be posted regardless of perceived value or redundancy with information previously posted. I urge every gun owner to take similar actions in their state of residence.

Episode 10 Delayed

with one comment

Two episodes in a row delayed. Not good. But alas I have to do it however much it pains me. The reasoning is due to some stuff going on in my personal life and the fact the place that employs me is moving from one building to another and won’t be completed until the 25th. I hope to get an episode out before all this but I sadly can not guarantee it.

Anyways I apologize for this and will get the episode out as soon as humanly possible.

Episode 9

with 2 comments

Although slightly delayed here is episode 9. The topic of this episode is getting involved. I briefly go through different ways you can get involved for the fight for your rights. A little bit of everything is covered including different ways you can fight for your rights locally as well as federally. This really should have been episode 1 but alas better late then never is the theme of this episode.

Episode 9 Will Be Delayed

with one comment

Hey everybody. Although I hate to do it I must delay episode 9. Why? Well a reason is most certainly something I must provide.

I live in an apartment complex and my new neighbor has a fancy new boom boom system he is apparently very proud of. You can hear the music in my apartment it’s so good in fact. Noise violations don’t start until 10 p.m. here hence I can’t do anything, nor am I able to figured out exactly which apartment the bass is coming from. When I do I’ll ask him to turn it down.

Why does this matter? Well because my microphone keeps picking up his bass lines. I’m trying to figure out how to filter them out in GarageBand. Since I’m not overly good with the program and time has been in short supply I haven’t figured out the setting yet. Expect the episode later this week.

Sorry for the delay.

Episode 8

with 2 comments

Welcome to episode 8. Since this is the last episode of the year I decided to have a little fun and do something different. Instead of the usual show content this episode is me talking about the results of my experiment over the last several months, comparing the Springfield XD to the Glock pistol. Don’t worry no fanboyism is contained, just my findings after months of comparing the two. I have been running this series on my blog for a while so I will link to those posts here and add news ones as I make them. Enjoy.
