    Drone Wars 4.5 - Too Hot for YouTube

    Drone Wars 4.5 - Too Hot for YouTube

    The Drone Wars videos that we've been posting on the T.Rex Labs channel are valuable explorations of technology meeting combat, but there are certain things that we cannot show or talk about under Google's content rules. Those conversations will come here, to this podcast. Today we look closer at Ukraine's cheap suicide drones and what they mean in the context of just war theory, and the future of war in general.

    The grim and terrible videos of explosive attacks on defenseless footsoldiers might be verboten on Youtube, but they raise a number of questions. Is technology neutral, or are some weapons too dangerous to go unbanned by authorities? Do FPV drones represent a completely novel groundbreaking type of combat, or merely a new look at the old face of war?

    Mother Jones Exposes T.Rex Arms!

    Mother Jones Exposes T.Rex Arms!

    A few months ago, the investigative news magazine Mother Jones turned its sights on T.Rex Arms and published an exposé on this Tennessee holster company. Was it a searing hit piece, or a thoughtful affirmation of our core values? Well, thanks to the high level of political division today, it can be both!

    New Agencies, Zombie Guns, and ATF Raids - Triple Threat!

    New Agencies, Zombie Guns, and ATF Raids - Triple Threat!

    There are three grave threats to firearm freedoms: giant unaccountable government agencies, ignorant and emotionally-driven laws, and bad enforcement policies. Sometimes the stars align and you see perfect examples of all three pop up in a single weekend. 

    Today we will look at the Department of Justice's brand new National Extreme Risk Protection Order Resource Center (NERPORC for short), the even more hilariously named Destroy Zombie Guns Act, and the tragic ATF raid on the home of Bryan Malinowski.

    We're as annoyed by TikTok as anyone, but the US Government's new plan to control it might be even more chilling than the last.
