In this episode of your favorighteous pro-gun podcast by your friend and brother from another mother, Kenn Blanchard harps on the number “10” like a Sesame Street theme. He answers a listener that called in about what President Obama said about gun free zones and common sense legislation. What are they? You’ll also hear some little known American history facts about the 10th Cavalry US Army regiment known as the “Buffalo Soldiers.” And you’ll hear why Kenn wants you to join the 10dollargunclub.com. Did you know its crossbreedholsters.com ten year anniversary?
Kenn tries to read some good stuff from David B. Kopel’s Truth About Gun Control which sums up some of his points.
And he tries to do it all “authoritatively.”

The magic number is 10
History of the Tenth Cavalry…
The 10th Cavalry Regiment is a unit of the United States Army. Formed as a segregated African-American unit, the 10th Cavalry was one of the original “Buffalo Soldier” regiments. It served in combat during the Indian Wars in the western United States, the Spanish–American War in Cuba and in the Philippine–American War. The regiment was trained as a combat unit but later relegated to non-combat duty and served in that capacity in World War II until its deactivation in 1944.
A lasting legacy of the soldiers as park rangers is the Ranger hat (popularly known as the Smokey Bear hat). Although not officially adopted by the Army until 1911, the distinctive hat crease, called a Montana peak, (or pinch) can be seen being worn by several of the Buffalo Soldiers in park photographs dating back to 1899. Soldiers serving in the Spanish–American War began to recrease the Stetson hat with a Montana “pinch” to better shed water from the torrential tropical rains. Many retained that distinctive crease upon their return to the U.S. The park photographs, in all likelihood, show Buffalo Soldiers who were veterans from that 1898 war.
