Gun Rights and Porn in the Afternoon

Episode 561

On 24 March 2018 there was a huge march in Washington, DC funded by the super rich against gun owners. Kenn Blanchard talks about the shotgun in self defense, Michael J. Woodland on a survivors mindset, Andrews Branca gives a tip on the judicial system, and Kenn shares the news of the tragedy in Maryland with a school shooting. Kenn inspires and tries to encourage the law abiding gun owner now demonized. Gun control, gun rights, civil rights, and civil liberties explained.

SHOTGUN

Is the shotgun a one size fits all tool for self-defense? Probably not.  It is an effective tool and worth considering when choosing a home defense weapon.  For one thing, it is still a very economical option when compared to carbines. 

There are many  misconceptions surrounding the home defensive shotgun .  The stuff Hollywood puts out is misleading.  For the record, you can easily miss with a shotgun. Movie scatterguns may lift grown men completely off their feet or stop large cars in their tracks, but real ones don’t do anything like that.  The shotgun remains an excellent choice of armament for use in home or where concealment is not an issue.

The shotgun has been a ubiquitous home-defense tool for decades but it has lost its sparkle over the years. As I spoke of last week, the AR-platform rifles are getting cheaper and the fact that they are almost, endlessly customizable, and available in nearly every modern caliber under the sun, it becomes harder and harder to justify the harsh recoil and comparatively clunky operation of a shotgun.

 

Defensive shotguns still have a wide array of configurations, accessories, and ammunition types.  Tactically, a  shotgun offers four points of contact to steady and guide an easier-to-aim barrel. And then there’s the “terminal energy.”  In each typical shotshell of 00 Buck, there are nine pellets that combine to deliver roughly 1500 ft.-lbs. of energy to the target—or four times the energy of a .45 ACP bullet fired from a Model 1911 pistol. Factor in five to nine shells capable of being fired in rapid succession, and what you have is one of the most formidable arms for home defense ever conceived. The point is simple–proper selection of a fighting shotgun and effective ammunition, combined with training, give the defensive shooter one of the most devastating firearms possible.

The shotgun doesn’t have to be the shoulder-breaker that it is often stereotyped as.  Excessive recoil is going to negatively impact performance during training as well as during defensive situations, and as many of us have found out one way or another, shotguns can generate a ton of recoil.

 In states where magazine capacity is restricted, there may not even be a substantial capacity disparity between the shotgun and other defense platforms to begin with, which makes the shotgun an even more attractive option for those of us faced with excessive legislation against the law abiding.

Shot guns come in several flavors all categorized by their actions, some are.
Pump-Action
Semi-auto
Bolt action

Breech:  The breech types are for hunting and sport shooting not defense.

Training is what makes a difference.

 

PORN,  YOUTUBE and Gun Sites NEWS

Pornography is any image, picture, statue, advertisement, writing, etc. whose purpose is to create sexual titillation. In modern Western culture, sex has become such a public topic that the lines between what is legitimate and what is illicit are harder and harder to draw. In fact, sexual images have become so prominent that what used to be considered soft porn, is now considered tame enough to be on prime time television. And while it used to be that people could only get access to it in magazines behind the counter – and then only at certain stores – it is now so pervasive that virtually anyone can access any kind of porn through the most basic internet connection. Many now even question why Christians think pornography is such a big deal.

It is possible for a person to become desensitized to just about anything. Many people who live around abject poverty get to where they hardly even notice it. People who play violent video games often become so desensitized that even real violence is seen as no big deal. This technique is even used by the military to desensitize young recruits. And to get into the topic we are dealing with today, pornography has become so prominent in our society that we hardly even notice it anymore – much less think of it as something bad and destructive. A great example of this is the many “soft porn” TV commercials advertising everything from lingerie to hamburgers. It is so prevalent that most people aren’t even embarrassed anymore when they are shown.

There are many reasons why pornography is a bad thing. Some of those reasons include the fact that it is instrumental in breaking up marriages, it desensitizes people concerning the true significance of sexuality, it objectifies people – turning them into objects of self-gratification instead of persons of worth – and it creates literal addictions which, in turn, lead to acts of perversion.

From a Christian perspective it is bad because it rips people out of their personal fellowship with God. It changes our hearts. Pornography makes sex  purely an object of self gratification. In any area, when our life is focused on gratifying ourselves rather than accomplishing the purpose of God, we have put ourselves in a position which is outside of our relationship with God.

As Christians, we need to be living and expressing our own faith (worldview beliefs) in a way which not only serves to eliminate this destructive influence, but which, literally, changes the hearts of individuals.

In the news I referenced came from this one:

Gun enthusiasts publishing videos to Pornhub amid YouTube crackdown

BY
JESSICA SCHLADEBECK

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

Friday, March 23, 2018, 11:06 AM

It’s getting hard to share gun videos on the internet these days.

A recently announced YouTube crackdown on a portion of its gun-related content has pushed some users to a new, unorthodox hub willing to host their content.
InRangeTV, which has more than 144,000 subscribers on its YouTube channel, has opted instead to publish its videos on Pornhub. A search of the adult website turns up a series of clips including one that sees hosts comparing a Glock 19 and a Hudson H9.
Though it’s listed among racier clips common to a porn site, the video appears exactly as it does on YouTube.
InRangeTV on its Facebook page said the move was an effort to defend “freedom of expression on the internet.”

“We will not be seeking any monetization from PornHub and do not know what their monetization policies are, we are merely looking for safe harbor for our content and for our viewers,” wrote Karl Kasarda and Ian McCollum, who run the popular gun review blog.
YouTube on Monday announced new policy regarding gun-related content shared to the website.

Starting next month, videos that offer instruction on how to make firearms and accessories — like bump stocks and silencers — will no longer be allowed on the popular video-sharing platform. Content detailing modifications to guns and videos aiming to sell firearms and accessories will also be prohibited under the new policies.

Several gun adovcates have slammed YouTube for the move. (INRANGETV VIA YOUTUBE)
“We routinely make updates and adjustments to our enforcement guidelines across all of our policies,” a YouTube spokesperson said in a statement.

“While we’ve long prohibited the sale of firearms, we recently notified creators of updates we will be making around content promoting the sale or manufacture of firearms and their accessories, specifically items like ammunition, gatling triggers and drop-in auto sears.”
Prominent pro-gun bloggers and advocates were quick to denounce the move, many of them expressing their frustration on social media.

“The liberal left will slowly chip away at our freedoms and erode our rights, and the first step is to squelch our voice,” Florida-based gun manufacturer, Spike’s Tactical wrote on Facebook.

“To say we’re f—ing pissed is an understatement.”
The new policies are slated to go into full effect on April 20.
The announcement comes just more than a month after a gunman killed 17 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school in Florida. The student survivors of the deadly attack have since thrust the issue of gun violence into the national spotlight

YouTube today updated its policies on videos containing firearm and firearm modifications, banning demo videos, how-tos, and anything containing links to sites that sell guns. Needless to say, the gun enthusiast community on the site is not taking happy about it, and some are starting to find unconventional new hosts for their content.
According to YouTube’s updated policies, it will no longer allow content that:

…intends to sell firearms or certain firearms accessories through direct sales (e.g., private sales by individuals) or links to sites that sell these items …Provides instructions on manufacturing a firearm, ammunition, high capacity magazine, homemade silencers/suppressors, or certain firearms accessories such as those listed above. This also includes instructions on how to convert a firearm to automatic or simulated automatic firing capabilities, [or] Shows users how to install the above-mentioned accessories or modifications.

The community is already starting to feel the pressure, as several channels are seeing videos disappear, according to Motherboard. One popular channel, Spike’s Tactical, was taken down entirely for content that, according to a notice posted to the channel’s Facebook page, “promotes violent or dangerous acts.” The channel has since been reinstated, and YouTube told Bloomberg the takedown was a mistake.

At least one of the vloggers in question has turned to a different platform: PornHub. InRangeTV, a channel with over 100,000 subscribers, said in a statement on Facebook that it was “merely looking for a safe harbor for our content and for our viewers.” It also said, “YouTube’s recent update on their policy towards firearm content is extremely poorly worded and open ended.”

YouTube first began taking down videos with gun modifications last October, following the massacre in Las Vegas. At the time, the big target seemed to be bump stocks, a modification allegedly used by shooter Stephen Paddock to tragic effect.
We’ll have to wait and see if other gun enthusiasts follow InRange over to PornHub and other video sites. Though if I were Vimeo, I’d be feeling very unappreciated right now.

556 – Lift Every Voice & Sing

History

On Christmas Day 1951, Harry T. Moore and his wife, Harriette, had just finished celebrating their silver anniversary when a bomb blew up their home in Mims, Fla. The explosion killed the couple, and they became the first martyrs from civil rights movement the 1950s. For seventeen years, in an era of official indifference and outright hostility, the soft-spoken but resolute Moore traveled the back roads of the state on a mission to educate, evangelize, and organize. On Christmas night in 1951, in Mims, Florida, a bomb placed under his bed ended Harry Moore’s life. His wife, Harriette, died of her wounds a week later. And I bet you have never heard of it.

Happy New Year Your Site is Down

As the Christmas season ended and we were all looking forward to the New Year, the Black Man With A Gun website disappeared. I thought it was something simple like a company reboot or patch but that is not what happened. I had failed to see a email note billing me for three years. Well, I did see it but thought it was a hoax.

It was real. I lost all my sites actually. And I thought, maybe it’s a sign of the time. When is the last time you have visited the Black Man With A Gun website? See? So, with the exception of 600 plus pictures and the post from David Cole, I didn’t care.  Losing Dave’s stuff hurt.  But, this is the rebuild.  The podcast is still going strong and Michael J. Woodland and I are making plans to do something cool in 2018 on blackmanwithagun.tv.  I am going to get my post back one by one.

This year I plan to do a lot more training, shooting and video work. I’m still not feeling some of the newer guys in this community but trying not to be a hater. They have their audiences and we got each other. This show is still for the cool people in the gun community. We are mature and established. We have guns older than most of these Johnny Come lately’s with the profanity spewing but social media savvy, but I digress.

What gun are you going to master this year? I know you have a couple. Which one are you going to invest the time and money in to learn, practice with and become life saving proficient with? You are going to have to take some training with a good instructor. One that will show you if your gear is right. One that is experienced talking and teaching. One that is not on a ego trip. One that he or she themselves is still learning. And one that can challenge you. One that could stand up in court as an expert witness and defend his or her training plan. There are a lot of former bad a@@ training folks today but not all of them are worth their salt.

Announcement

I have two vacancy announcements. I am looking for two people to review gear, training and guns for the Black Man With A Gun blog. If you want to write, video or be a part of the podcast, call me. I am moving more toward ministry and producing other people’s podcasts in the new year and want to share the love.

What would happen after you got started is that I would be able to get you gear and guns to review. You’d have to do the heavy lifting, FFL’s, writing and recording but I’d share your stuff but you’d benefit from it. You’d go to shows, and events on behalf of the Black Man With A Gun too. It’s a big deal to me. I’d have to trust you with a brand that has taken twenty years to make. So I have to be careful who I select BUT if you know me, and have been a long time listener I probably know you too.

SHOT show is coming up. If you are going and see something cool that would be good for others in our community to know about will you do a write up, take photos or narrate a video? Even if you didn’t want to do it full time, we would appreciate the insight and sharing.

553 – Free Men Own Guns, Slaves Do Not

Listen
Happy New Year and thank you for listening to the Black Man With A Gun Show Podcast.  In response to feedback that you liked when I did a little history, I am going to share some bullet points of the history of slavery in America up until the Emancipation Proclamation.  There was a old celebration of freedom that has been perverted called “Watch Night.”  It involved my ancestors and I want to share that with you.  Michael J. Woodland, talks about cleaning your rifle and you might here a few other things in this one.

By the President of the United States of America: A Proclamation. Whereas, on the twenty-second day of September, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-two, a proclamation was issued by the President of the United States, containing, among other things, the following, to wit: “That on the first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free; and the Executive Government of the United States, including the military and naval authority thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of such persons, and will do no act or acts to repress such persons, or any of them, in any efforts they may make for their actual freedom. “That the Executive will, on the first day of January aforesaid, by proclamation, designate the States and parts of States, if any, in which the people thereof, respectively, shall then be in rebellion against the United States; and the fact that any State, or the people thereof, shall on that day be, in good faith, represented in the Congress of the United States by members chosen thereto at elections wherein a majority of the qualified voters of such State shall have participated, shall, in the absence of strong countervailing testimony, be deemed conclusive evidence that such State, and the people thereof, are not then in rebellion against the United States.” Now, therefore I, Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, by virtue of the power in me vested as Commander-in-Chief, of the Army and Navy of the United States in time of actual armed rebellion against the authority and government of the United States, and as a fit and necessary war measure for suppressing said rebellion, do, on this first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and in accordance with my purpose so to do publicly proclaimed for the full period of one hundred days, from the day first above mentioned, order and designate as the States and parts of States wherein the people thereof respectively, are this day in rebellion against the United States, the following, to wit: Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana, (except the Parishes of St. Bernard, Plaquemines, Jefferson, St. John, St. Charles, St. James Ascension, Assumption, Terrebonne, Lafourche, St. Mary, St. Martin, and Orleans, including the City of New Orleans) Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia, (except the forty-eight counties designated as West Virginia, and also the counties of Berkley, Accomac, Northampton, Elizabeth City, York, Princess Ann, and Norfolk, including the cities of Norfolk and Portsmouth[)], and which excepted parts, are for the present, left precisely as if this proclamation were not issued. And by virtue of the power, and for the purpose aforesaid, I do order and declare that all persons held as slaves within said designated States, and parts of States, are, and henceforward shall be free; and that the Executive government of the United States, including the military and naval authorities thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of said persons. And I hereby enjoin upon the people so declared to be free to abstain from all violence, unless in necessary self-defence; and I recommend to them that, in all cases when allowed, they labor faithfully for reasonable wages. And I further declare and make known, that such persons of suitable condition, will be received into the armed service of the United States to garrison forts, positions, stations, and other places, and to man vessels of all sorts in said service. And upon this act, sincerely believed to be an act of justice, warranted by the Constitution, upon military necessity, I invoke the considerate judgment of mankind, and the gracious favor of Almighty God. In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed. Done at the City of Washington, this first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty three, and of the Independence of the United States of America the eighty-seventh. By the President: ABRAHAM LINCOLN WILLIAM H. SEWARD, Secretary of State.
