At Last We Will Reveal Ourselves To The Derp-Herders (Podcast – Season 2, Ballistic Radio Episode 94, January 11th, 2015)

“Convincing someone to do something, though, is a terrible idea. If (an individual) doesn’t want to carry, they’re not going to carry, and even if you do, through peer pressure, convince them to do it, they’re not going to do it well and they’re not going to take it seriously. So the only thing you can do is present information, if they’re willing to receive it. Other than that, you don’t want to be the dudes out in the shirts and ties, on your bicycles saying, ‘Excuse me sir, do you have a moment to talk about concealed carry?’.” – John Johnston


Facebook is a magical place where well structured, friendly debates occur, and everyone realizes that their opinion is just an opinion and it’s ok if people don’t always agree… And I ride a magical unicorn to work every morning that craps out bacon wrapped Twinkies . Facebook is useful for something, though, and that something is taking your questions to answer on air!

That’s exactly what we’ve done for you again, and this time we swear we’ll get those patches out (or else The Minion gets it). One topic that gets covered is whether gun forums should require a valid driver’s license to actively participate, to encourage accountability. We discuss whether convincing your spouse to carry is a good idea, and conversely, if we should be discouraging friends who aren’t proficient with a firearm from carrying. Medical gear carry is brought up, and just what exactly do you do if someone’s wife owes money all over town and your rug gets peed on because you have the same last name as the husband of said dead-beat wife.
