Podcast Network

Podcast Network

The Black Man With a Gun Show podcast has been in existence since 2007.  It’s one of the oldest indy gun podcast in America. Coming from Maryland of all places which is not the most gun friendly places in the United States.  The show is the flagship for the new https://blanchardnetwork.com which is a small network of podcasts produced by Rev. Kenn Blanchard and his son.  

When Kenn started, the cool kids were into bulletin boards.  Then AOL 1.0 became a thing.  Most people thought if you had American Online’s email account that was all you needed and you were on the internet.  They had great marketing.  Then the creatives who were much younger were lured into MySpace.  It was finally taken over by strippers before being shut down.  

This website blackmanwithagun.com has been around since  1999.  It was created to sell his book and talk about his firearms training business.  It was created by a PhD back when HTML was a science.  It had flash and music.  It took about thirty seconds to load the home page which was a color photo he used for the cover of his book, Black Man With A Gun, (the first edition). 

black Man with a gun first editionThe photo was taken by a famous photographer he found by accident, J Miccolo Johnson.  If you had speakers on your computer (sold separately) you heard James Browns “Super Bad.”  At the time, most corporations didn’t even have websites.  Ahead of his time, Kenn was “ballin”,   while the world was planning Y2K.

Kenn plans to expand the network to include podcasts from others but it will be exclusive.  This is the second time Kenn has tried to build a network.  “It’s hard to believe I am still doing this,” he says. Podcasting is still pretty new and the medium still changing.  I have grown and learning the value I represent.  I get request daily from foreign entities trying to post on this site.  If you think making money blogging is hard work, try podcasting. 

Some think this is the next big thing till they commit to it.  

“Somehow I missed the gold rush.  I wasn’t able to quit my 9-5, get a four hour work week, buy a home in Puerto Rico, or build a school in Africa from podcasting, but I still have hope.”

This platform for podcasters looks promising and if you have a following, you should invest in it as a website alternative. 

Advertisers and sponsors welcome.

This is unique opportunity for your company to get “word of mouth advertising on steroids” through the sponsorship of all of the properties of the Blanchard Network.  

As a sponsor, your company will receive a professionally produced audio commercial played on the show of your choice, banner ads with links and personal endorsement on social media like Youtube videos, Twitter, Facebook, and personal appearances.  For more information contact Kenn at Kenn dot Blanchard at gmail dot com.

Blacks With Guns Make Me Uncomfortable

Blacks With Guns Make Me Uncomfortable

Podcast Episode 668 

The title of this week’s podcast is supposedly attributed to then-Governor Ronald Reagan during the time when the Black Panther Party for Self Defense and Justice (BPP)  marched into Sacramento, CA to voice their opposition to the bill and raise awareness of the brutality that African Americans faced at the hands of law enforcement, the BPP decided to travel to the state capitol in Sacramento. The family of Denzil Dowell, an unarmed black man who was shot and killed by a California police officer, had approached the BPP for aid earlier that month. In response, the BPP met with the county district attorney and appealed to the sheriff’s department for further investigation into the shooting. Having exhausted the appropriate legal channels with no success, the BPP decided to use the trip to Sacramento to publicize the issue. The threat posed by the Mulford Act resonated even more within the context of the Dowell shooting.

 

Mulford’s bill was a direct response to the BPP’s use of firearms as a mode of protest. Mulford even boasted of his intent to sabotage the organization by calling into an Oakland radio program during a feature including BPP members to publicly announce his proposed bill. The Mulford Act was hardly the first effort to disarm African Americans. For instance, certain Black Codes passed following the Civil War required African Americans to obtain special permits to possess a gun. While earlier legislation was more explicit about its intent to target African Americans, measures like the Mulford Act and its prohibition of public carry technically applied evenly to the entire population. However, gun control legislation like the Mulford Act could be used to target specific groups through application. Furthermore, the Mulford Act did not apply to law enforcement, meaning that police officers had new leverage over the BPP. Newton claimed that the BPP never perceived vigilante groups like the Ku Klux Klan to be its primary threat. Rather, it was state forces such as the National Guard and local police that posed the most danger to the organization. The BPP’s central opposition was law enforcement, and by disarming the BPP while allowing law enforcement to retain its weapons, the Mulford Act would shift the balance of power to favor police officers.

 

Members of the BPP traveled to the capitol on May 2, 1967, and boldly entered the building armed.

This reminds me of some of the many “evergreen” arguments of gun control,   

Open Carry vs Concealed Carry.

Of those that believe in open carry know that the opposition to what you do is based on history like the Mulford Act in 1967.  It is suggested that you practice carrying your firearm at home to learn how it feels before you go out in public if you are able to do so legally.  Also, do you know that you will be judged by others when you do and may have to answer stupid questions as the representative of us all?  They will judge you by your appearance as well.

If I Died Tonight

If I Died Tonight

Do you realize that 1 in 5 people have considered suicide?

Looking at the title of this post might make you worry about me. I’m fine. I’m launching a new project and I want to share it with you.

The struggles of life, and death is not a fun topic to talk about but recently I had an epiphany that this is something I should create a podcast about. The fact that so many people have thought or are thinking about ending their lives is real. I plan to use my gifts to minister in this podcast.

The podcast will cover more than suicide actually. It is going to cover some of life’s most messed up moments. Some of us don’t know how to process it. Some of us get overwhelmed and think that there is no way out but to end our lives.

Experiencing suicidal thoughts does not always mean that a person will kill themselves. It does mean you need to hear from someone that wants to hear from you.

I have overcome a lot in my life. It does me no earthly good not to help as many people as I can deal with the transitions of life.

You may not be so-called “religious” but it is my faith and belief in God that is orchestrating this in my life. It is my belief that if I do this I will help someone that needs it. There’s a good chance I’ve experienced or know of what you are going through, got beat down for it, and found my way out of it. This show wants to help you survive another week.

I am passionate about life and want more people to enjoy theirs.

There is hardly anything that you can go through that someone else hasn’t. Life doesn’t play favorites. It hits us all.

This COVID-thing is new to everyone under 90 years old, but we’ve even had plagues before.

• Are you dealing with sadness right now?
• Are you grieving?
• Are you feeling guilty for something you done?
• Are you pissed off, I mean angry and think you should get some payback?
• Are you feeling like you are a burden to others, that you are worthless?
• You feeling like is not worth living anymore?
• Do you feel trapped, and it can be physically or emotionally?
• Feeling like things will never get better?
• Are you just in pain?

But wait there’s more:

The show won’t be morbid and sad though. I plan to encourage and share all the wisdom I have and can get from smarter people on strategies for doing better as a person.
Consider me your uncle, brother or friend that wants you to win. I’m still working out the details on how I am going to do this, but I am planning it now. You’ll see some post until then as I work out the kinks of my plan.

All I know is that I am called to do it. I want to use this voice, this heart and this spirit to save a soul. We’ll see where it goes from there.

I even have an ameliorated title for the podcast.

If I Died Tonight Podcast coming soon.

If you want to be notified of all the developments, you can email me.

Pastor

Pastor

Every community has their holy men, shaman, religious leaders. I am one for the gun community. I am the Friar Tuck of this band of merry minutemen and women that believe in God. I haven’t been promoting it or sharing it openly but have been participating in weddings, funerals, baptisms and private counselings when life events make us jump in the foxhole.

There are no atheist in a foxhole.

When you are contemplating next steps, life and death and where you are going from here, I’ve been called upon to offer an ear, solace, comfort, experience, empathy, and love. Its not a sexy job but I’ve been called to it. I am hard wired to it. I’ve been doing it since 2001.

Sometimes it seems to conflicted with my pro-gun stuff until I realized I was serving the community I was in. I was ordained and served as pastor to Historic Berean Baptist Church in Washington, D.C., for seven years before creating the Speak Life Church, Incorporated.  I still rock the collar but I do it all virtually now.

I’m the pastor of patriots, pistoleros and paladins.

Speak Life is striving to be a continuation of the ministry of the Apostle Paul using technology. Church and fellowship is not about the building you are in, it is about learning and growing closer to Jesus. It is about building friendships and a community. Through the website, podcasting, video, live streaming and social media, people can be reached that do not feel at home in a traditional church. However, Speak Life is not all about technology. Phone calls, personal visits and meet ups are also a huge part of fellowship and are an even larger part of the roadmap for the church.

Although technically, Speak Life has only been operating for several years now, here are some of our successes:

* Helped prevent seven suicides
* Saved several marriages
* Organized charitable fundraisers for good causes
* Saved the home of a terminally ill veteran
* Provided fishing trips and ministry to a senior citizen, dying of cancer
* Officiated at 18 weddings

Our Mission

To restore and strengthen the family, provide hope for those in need and offer a non-traditional place of worship, using technology to be anywhere. All are welcome, including those souls still searching for what they believe in.

Speak Life Church is an IRS 501 (c)3 recognized religious charity, incorporated in the State of Maryland in 2018.
A fellowship that uses technology to create a non-traditional place of life-affirming strength and worship everywhere to everyone.

The Rights of Gun Owners – Podcast Episode 662

The Rights of Gun Owners – Podcast Episode 662

What do you do after you buy your firearm, learn, train, share your knowledge and have fun with it?  You have to defend your right to it.  Politically– gun control is a staple in America.  And after the past four years,  this country is more divided than it was since 1975. 

If you are a new gun owner, I am asking you to consider becoming a gun rights activist.  If you belong to a new gun club or group, I am suggesting that someone be designated to be the  legislative rep; the one that learns about gun laws, state bills, issues for the rest. The one that will make time to go and sit, talk to, represent us.   

With the increase of black, brown and other gun owners from what is called Traditional, there is a need for us to also step up and represent our clubs, associations and rights.  As America mends, as the Republic repairs itself,  it is going to be slow.  Our enemies will take this opportunity to hurt the future of ALL gun owners. 

This is my appeal.  Uncle Kenn Wants You! 

I am asking you to do more than wear black battle fatigues and parade around.  I’m asking you to do more that show off your range time “kings and queens” on social media.

Social media has created an environment of fearlessness, carelessness, thoughtlessness, hopelessness, false bravado, misinformation, and racism.  Those things have always been but it has upped its game.

When the dust settles, and the battle for gun rights begins again, the sage gun clubs, organizations and cool old white guys will be dismissed  like the middle of the road folks have been.  They will be compared to and accused of being insurrectionist, racist and nuts 10 x more than before.  WHY – because they helped.  They made it easy. They fell into the trap.

Friends I am talking to you. We have been pitted against each other;  SUCCESSFULLY.  Your hot buttons have been pushed.  You’ve exercised your rights to speak out and do what you wanted and it hurt us all.  

From my optic, law enforcement has less support than since 1968.  (Successful campaigns)

Attention whores rule social media and magazines covers.

There will be less interaction between the new gun owner and the old because of the discourse, media and stances folks have taken. (propaganda)

We are caught up in the fantasy.  We still want to be crusaders, black panthers, confederates, punishers, tactical spectacular militia and minute-men.  

NINJA please!

Lynx Defense Range Bag Review

Lynx Defense Range Bag Review

When you are almost famous people send you stuff to review.  I was blessed to receive a Lynx Defense Pistol Range Bag to check out.  I have really good news for you.  Its a really good range bag and I will be giving it away to a subscriber on BlackManWithAGun.com newsletter and friends list.  If you are not on the list, you can’t get it.  I have decided to have a giveaway as often as I can to folks that I know and support the podcast and blog. Not on the list?  C’mon, what are you waiting for?

The Lynx Defense Pistol range bag is about 15” long and is a must for your ear and eye protection, ammo and magazines.  It will hold a lot more.  Your mileage may vary.  It’s 100% American made sewn products for shooting sports, military law enforcement and hunting applications.  It is made with good water resistant material,  good zippers, and the velcro is a monster on the inside.  You can arrange your bag on the inside as you see fit.

I Got An Award

I Got An Award

The Second Amendment Foundation has been a steady source of friends, and information in my journey. From this organization I met and miss the late John Synder, and Joe Tartaro who were my gun rights mentors. It is with great honor and appreciation that I accept the 2020 Gun Blogger of the Year award from my friends at SAF.

When I got started in firearms training in 1986 for the US Government, I noticed how the knowledge I had wasn’t common. Bitten by the entrepreneurial bug in 1990, I decided to open my own firearms and emergency medical training company. African American Arms and Instruction, Inc. (A3i) failed. I didn’t know what I didn’t know about business, the gun culture, and the myself. By 1991, I became a gun rights evangelist. First introducing the practicality and responsibility of gun ownership to families in Balitmore, and Prince Georges County, Maryland. I founded the Tenth Cavalry Gun Club. It grew faster than I was prepared for. I started working with the Law Enforcement Alliance of America, the National Rifle Association, CATO Institute, and others gun groups that didn’t get along with each other. I became an ambassador and diplomat in the gun culture. I fostered relationships, screened and helped people get seen. The gun club grew into a chapter in DC, Baltimore and NJ.

The journey wasn’t smooth.  While I was still employed by the government I was being watched by internal affairs for being a gun rights activist.  I sacrificed promotions, positions and a career. I feared every media photo or TV appearance I was on. I was hoping that something I did for my country would allow me to be able to support my family.  It didn’t happen.  This was before Google, Facebook and modern social media platforms used today by the hundreds of pro-gun activist, gun bunnies and trainers.

As an unpaid lobbyist and activist I have testified before the United States Congress, Texas, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Michigan, Virginia, and Maryland for an individual’s right to self-defense.

I attended my first Gun Rights Policy Conference in San Francisco in 1994. I have been the recipient of the National Rifle Association’s Carter-Knight Freedom award, the Second Amendment Foundations’ Gun Defender Award of the month (August 1997) and the St. Gabriel Possenti medal from the St. Possenti Society.

I have been involved in almost every pro-rights case that involved a person of color in the background. I have voiced commercials for TV against racist gun laws in Chicago, Los Angeles and Baltimore. I’ve been featured internationally and in four documentaries. I have been speaking professionally since 1992. I have provided voice-overs for pro-gun commercials in Chicago, Los Angeles and Baltimore.

I’ve been kicked out of churches, halls, yelled at by anti-rights groups and maligned by pastors before social media. My book was dissed by Oprah, African American book stores and family. I”ve been accused of being a militant, and a revolutionary.  I’ve been said to be too nice, a sell out, a coon, and not militant enough.

Like Johnny Cash, “I”ve Been Everywhere Man.”

 

In 1999, a good friend helped me get the Black Man With A Gun Blog online. It was a major and financial undertaking back then. People where just getting familiar with America Online 1.0 and I had a website promoting a book. The Black Man with a Gun was a homage to the only other book of its kind written by Robert F. Johnson, Negroes With Guns; published in 1968.

The first edition of Black Man with a Gun was featured in the August 2001 edition of American Rifleman. I was featured in the Washington Business Journal on Jan. 2002.  I was mentioned in the Wall Street Journal (1999) as a security expert. I have served on the Urban Affairs, and Training committees of the NRA in the past. I’ve was an advisor/editor for the creation of the Refuse to Be a Victim course book.

After discovering podcasting in 2007, I created the Urban Shooter Podcast now called the Black Man with a Gun Show to be able to reach people I have met as an activist and encourage them to stay in the fight for freedom. I use my podcast to inspire, entertain and share parts of history that few have heard.

Since I began, I have taken the position of counselor, cheer leader, motivator and protector of the realm. I am the unofficial chaplain of our movement. I care more about my community than products. I protect and serve now more often one-on-one, sharing life experiences, wisdom and dad jokes.

I am the pastor of patriots, pistoleros and paladins.

I got an award, yo!

Conversation with US Navy Seal, Thom Shea

Conversation with US Navy Seal, Thom Shea

Focus can change your life. When you focus on your life to make it better, it happens. This week I decided to drop some things and expand on others.  The inspiration for this was a conversation I had with a U.S. Navy SEAL,

(Ret.) Senior Chief, Thom Shea.  I have a couple of other podcasts and the one focused on self-improvement was blessed to have him as a guest.

 

Thom is quite accomplished.
* He served 23 years as a U.S. Navy SEAL
* He is the only SEAL in history to endure the infamous “Hell Week” FIVE times, after being knocked out four times due to illness or injury
* He was hand-selected to serve as Officer In Charge of the famed SEAL Sniper course (he’s trained the best of the best; I like to call him “The SEAL behind the SEALs”)
* Bestselling author of “Unbreakable: A Navy SEAL’s Way of Life” and his new release “Three Simple Things: Leading During Chaos”
* Retired with distinguished valor, having earned a Silver Star, Bronze Star with Valor, Army Commendation with Valor and two Combat Action Medals
* He’s trained thousands of people around the world via his company, Unbreakable Leadership

How Important Is A Brand?

How Important Is A Brand?

The Bible says that names are important. That is the best reference I have for wisdom that is older and more respected than I. Have you noticed how some people in the Bible had their names changed? You name a person Mal for example, and you can expect bad things to happen. A brand is similar. You are a brand. I am a brand. My brand has changed as I aged. I’ve been online since 1999 but didn’t understand the power of a brand, or a social media presence. I used mine as an alias to help me keep my good government job. That is not a good way or suggested way to use a brand or a name by the way. I became famous for being known internationally as the Black Man With A Gun (TM) but not rich. That is what I really wanted. I wanted to have money like Scrooge McDuck but it didn’t happen. My brand today is to inspire people and help them live their best life.

I just started this new page in my life. It’s a good time for it. We just got through the worse year for many with COVID-19 and the Coronavirus pandemic. I restarted the Urban Shooter Podcast aka the Black Man With A Gun Show earlier this year by popular demand and I am having fun with it. There are a lot of new firearms owners and activist out here. They are the target audience I was aiming for twenty five years ago. Along my journey though I saw just as much grief and trouble that was not firearms related. It moved me to serve as a pastor. That brand didn’t jibe with some people.

Guns and Religious people – OMG! Like Daniel Boone and other Mountain Men, I blazed a trail for many. I took a few hits.

I learned that I loved working in recording studios and radio stations. I learned I loved podcasting and never stopped. I’ve voiced commercials that I didn’t get paid for. I learned and still learning to market myself kennblanchard.com as a voice talent. I’m learning about flow, and pacing, inflection and the business of voice acting. Podcasting since 2007 has helped my diction, focus and the art of editing. If you want a voice over artist, check me out. That and a new love I have for guitar are my things. I found joy in reconnecting to my past during this shut down. I want to help other do the same.

I have this new brand that reminds me of the Looney Tunes logo of my childhood. It is my new mantra.

It is not too late to be what you might have been.

It doesn’t matter that I am a former US Marine. I was a federal police officer. I was a pretty good CIA Intel analyst. And have been known internationally as the Black Man With A Gun. I’ve been involved in almost every pro-rights event that involved a person of color. I have lobbied the US Congress. I have testified in the state legislatures of Virginia, Texas, South Carolina, Michigan, Maryland, and Wisconsin. I have done commercials for TV against racist gun laws and been featured in four documentaries. He is the author of several books and has a successful podcast with over a million downloads. I have pastored a small Baptist church in Washington, DC. I have managed by the grace of God to stay married for almost thirty years. My brand is to encourage others to live their best life. This new brand is to help and inspire others through my podcast and online activities to try new things. Try old things. That it is never too late to be happy.

https://teespring.com/stores/rev-kenn-blanchard-show

Let me know how I can motivate, inspire or encourage you to not give up or give in till you win. This is my brand. And though it may not have anything to do directly with the gun argument or the foolishness that people like to promote to today as their brand, let’s see which one does the most good.

My podcast(s) are extensions of my brand. If you would like to hear my faith based show, an online church, listen to the podcast from http://speaklifechurch.net  If you want to hear me free-flowing and just cutting up with my motorcycle buddies, check out my motorcycle podcast which is good for any brand you ride although I am partial to the Indian Motorcycle.  Which I don’t even own yet.  And the podcast that is leading in downloads and has been since 2007 from Blackmanwithagun.com .  And finally, the Rev. Kenn Blanchard Show is a summation of them all tied together with the bow of positivity.  

 

Be careful of who and what you let into your head.  Please remember it ain’t too late to change.

Black Man With a Gun for Silencerco

Black Man With a Gun for Silencerco

The  year 2020 has been difficult for many of us.  I am glad to get some good news and share with you.  The ranges have been packed with new gun owners.  Most look like me.  It is unbelievable. 

Fear is still behind the sales but it aint the first time.  

What is the good news?

I am happy to announce that I will be a brand ambassador for the world’s largest firearm silencer manufacturer, SilencerCo. The company based in West Valley, UT is the nation’s leading designer and manufacturer of suppressors. SilencerCo is dedicated to creating products that will improve sound reduction levels, durability and longevity, form and function, ease of use and maintenance in ways never thought of or achieved.

I’m excited because I get to share my journey with you through social media.

Brand Ambassador

I used to think that silencers were only for the rich.  Some people think silencers are only for bad guys in the movies. And although the government has made it tough to get a suppressor you can own one legally.  In the upcoming videos and blog post,  I am going to be sharing the 5W’s  (Why, who, where, when, and What) of suppressors from my friends at SilencerCo.  The one in the video is an Osprey model that is on my Gen 3 Glock 17.  My review and demos are not going to be from a tech guy perspective.  We will talk tech but I am not geeking out on it and pretending to be an engineer or tinkerer.  This will be from a regular guy, gun enthusiast, law abiding suburban gun owner like you.  

There are some cool things about its design.  I hope to share who made the thing.  Why you should get one or two.  How it can help you.  How to get one.  When they were created.  And stuff that you won’t hear anywhere else.  You’ll see my flubs and mistakes.  I plan to share the journey with you so you can start off smarter.   

Unfortunately, if you live in the District of Columbia, California, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, and the Rhode Island you can’t own one.  You can get one is you are a legally eligible to purchase a firearm in your state of residence, able to pass a BATFE background check and are at least 21 years of age you can  purchase from a dealer. 

They are called cans, mufflers, silencers and suppressors. 

How they work is simple. 

  1. Instead of exiting directly from the muzzle, propellant gases first enter the silencer’s expansion chamber, losing some of their energy.
  2. Pressure continues to divert and slow within the baffles while heat dissipates, allowing the projectile to exit before the majority of the gas.
  3. As a result, the report of the shot is suppressed to a hearing-safe level and the de-corking effect, or BANG!, is mitigated.

 

As I learn, I’ll share the details with you here or on Silencerco.com so you can get the truth about silencers.
