Here we are at episode 6. Getting closer to double digit numbers every day. In this episode we get our article from the ever hysterical Brady Campaign. Mr. Pennington wrote an article in response to the Fort Hood killings which made little sense. This episode calls him out on it and goes through his article piece by piece pointing out the lies. I hope you enjoy it.
I also mentioned the Electronic Frontier Foundation push against Volomedia’s overly broad patent that could adversely affect podcasting. More information on that can be found here.

Episode 6 [MP3]
That’s right everybody we’ve made it through five episodes now. That’s more than twice the number of listeners! Anyways this episode is the first in a new series of Truth About Guns episodes. I’ll just call them rumor control for now but am open to better titles.
The premise of these episodes is to find the truth behind several gun rumors floating around on this series of tubes we call the Interwebitubes. You can thank Gail Pepin of the excellent ProArms podcast for coming up with this idea.
Instead of just presenting show notes and citations I will be preparing detailed individual pages for each rumor covered along with all the evidence found. This we you can easily link people to pages related to rumors your friends are talking about.
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get those pages online before the episode release (I like keeping with the whole posting episodes on Sunday at 10:00). But being I’m doing some traveling this week I will work on those pages on my downtime so they should be coming online one by one. Until then I’ll leave links to sources of the covered rumors. Sorry for the mess but I wanted to get the episode out as I won’t have any time next week to record one.

Episode 5 [MP3]
This is part two of our two part series covering California AB 962. In this episode we cover the second chapter of this bill and let you know what all the legalese means.
In the episode I make a mention of the Gun Nation podcast. There is a link to the episode I talked about in the show notes but there is no local copy on this page. Just a heads up.
