    007 - Jake Wiskerchen (Part 1)

    In today’s increasingly crowded society of Virtue Signaling, social justice warriors, and woke culture, it’s refreshing when you meet someone that wants to do right by humanity’s standards and truly seeks to make the world better.  Today’s guest is someone who epitomizes that.  He is unique because he is a mental health clinician who is also pro second amendment.  This episode is part one of a two part conversation with Jake Wiskerchen.

    In today's politically charged climate, Red Flag laws have become a symbol of gun control as opposed to a mechanism to save lives.  The mere mention of them within the pro-second amendment community triggers responses of anger and frustration.  These laws vary from state to state but are discussed as if they are one mythical boogeyman used by vindictive ex-lovers or angry co-workers to strip law abiding citizens like the majority of the pro 2a community.  The pro-gun control crowd weaponizes them to accuse us of not caring about saving lives if we oppose them. One thing is for sure: everyone has an opinion on them but have never actually had to be part of one which leaves us with a question: What would happen if you were in a scenario which required you to enact one while being a staunch 2A supporter?  You would find yourself stuck between a rock and a hard place weighing your support of gun rights against your moral duty to save the life of a loved one or potentially others.  It would probably feel like an episode of the twilight zone.  Today's guest was unfortunate enough to find himself in that very situation.  Here is David Anastasi’s story.

    005 - Kenny Barlow (aka Kenny Fresh)

    In this weeks episode, my guest is Kenny Barlow. Kenny....aka Kenny Fresh is an industry vet with years under his belt at North American Arms and now Dasan USA, an industry manufacturing partner in Duluth, GA. Kenny is one of the most easy going and objective people in the firearms industry. In today’s world of 2A fuckery where people throw reason and logic out the window because of identity politics and the ease of group thought, Kenny is a breath of fresh air and embraces his rejection of industry stereotypes with his flat-brim hat, Adidas shell-tops, and endless rotation of sport coats. It’s important to let people hear the types of conversations that go on between industry folks especially the ones that are devoid of political talking points and this conversation is a perfect example. We touch on subjects such as why everything defaults to politics these days, even tragedy. the danger of the claim that a person’s speech is the root cause of tragic events, and comparing Trump’s rhetoric on immigration to the lyrics by Tupac and Marilyn Manson the inherent issues of silencing bigoted speech and a host of other controversial topics. If you want to see how two people can have an objective conversation and grapple with sensitive topics.....then this is the show for you!

    On today’s episode, we have the one and only TracyGuns in the studio. I say one and only because I think she is one of the most unique influencers in the 2A community. Her presence on Instagram as a firearms industry brand ambassador is noticeable.

    003 - Maj Toure and Rob Pincus (Republished)

    Rob Pincus, Mike Sodini and Maj Toure too an opportunity to record this dialogue on Suicide Prevention, the need for the gun community to work with Mental Health Professionals and ways in which we can encourage greater responsibility in the firearms community. They also dove into the stigma that sometimes comes with gun ownership and often accompanies mental health issues or even asking for help. The conversation was recorded immediately after "Denver Gun Day", hosted by Guns For Everyone on August 25th, 2018. Maj Toure is the Founder of Black Guns Matter, an organization intended to raise firearms rights awareness and education in the urban community. Just a few weeks before this recording, Mike Sodini launched "Walk the Talk America", a non-profit organization lead by the gun industry to collaborate with Mental Health Professionals to take proactive steps to prevent tragedies. Rob Pincus works with both organizations and is the Executive Director of Personal Defense Network. He has been advocating for guns rights and teaching defensive skills for over two decades.
