Now, we talked about the barrage of anti-gun nonsense a lot last week. The amount of proposed and potentially dangerous legislation that we are facing is flat out staggering. It’s to the point where I’m not even sure where we need to be focusing our efforts and what we are really dealing with and THAT is why I’ve brought on tonight's guests.

This is a rare opportunity for us and I’m really pumped to be able to chat with these guys. Our guests tonight are part of the legal team for one of the sharpest gun rights groups in the US today. Yes both of these guys are attorneys for Firearms Policy Coalition. Let’s welcome to the show, Matthew Larosiere, FPC Director of Legal Policy and returning to the show, Adam Kraut, FPC Director of Legal Strategy.

As some of you may be aware, we are being attacked, gun owners are being attacked nationwide right now. It seems like every state in the nation is cranking out some sort of BS gun control just to get some useless politician reelected… its to the point where I can’t even keep up with everything. Usually we would have our resident attorney run us through what's going down but I decided to call in a new friend instead.

Our guest tonight is from one of the worst states in the union, Massachusetts and he is somehow one of the best gun guys to have on our team. Everyone welcome Jared from Guns & Gadgets to the show!

Today on the show I want to try to dive into a topic that might make you feel a little uncomfortable. Racism has almost been weaponized by mass media these days. It seems as though every day we are getting word that someone else did something racist and they should be burned at the stake for it. Well according to our guest tonight, gun control... one of the biggest staples of the anti-freedom diet... gun control at its core, is racist. We are going to dive into that and a few other things.

Joining me tonight is my long-lost co host, Johnny Bragg!

And of course, we have a guest tonight. This man hails from one of the most wretched hives of scum and villainy... The state of new jersey. And he also heads up a group known as 2A For Everyone. Let’s welcome to the show, Tony Simon!

TGC 052 - Mental Health and Guns

Welcome back to The Gun Collective podcast. My name is Jon Patton.
Tonight we are going to try to scratch the surface of mental health and how it relates to guns. For the last several years mental health has become more and more of a primary discussion when it comes to mass shootings, and its also become a larger topic is society as a whole. There are nuances of the nuances and this one goes deep so the goal tonight is to just start moving and see where we end up.
