Gun Rights Alliance

Join the mailing list 

Today, I am looking forward at what I can do for the gun rights movement as a legacy. I want to be remembered for more than just being the OG aka the Black Man with A Gun™. Here’s what I plan. I am working with a app developer to create a mobile app that can be a platform directory for organizations like the GOA, USCCA, SAF, NAAGA, 2AO, and others to connect with us.

It will also have a directory and links to pages from content creators that are really the media for our side. The bloggers, podcasters, and YouTubers will have their own apps within this app. I am trying to get cutting age tech to protect us from the Bergs that don’t like us. (Bloom and Zucker.)

It’s been a great life so far. Being involved in the gun rights movement has improved me. It has taught me to be a better citizen. It has made me appreciate freedom, history and the sacrifices of others.
Communication is the magic sauce. Going to try it despite our mistrust of each other. Going to make it happen despite the need for goo gobs of money. The power has always been in the people. We are what makes this thing called freedom work.

I think I can do this. I’ve worked with just about everyone. I’ve watched folks come and go. Like a sentinel, I have held my post. I have encouraged and discouraged posers as best I could. I have been an activist in the gun rights community since 1991. Before that I started as a firearms trainer for my government agency. From that I launched a side business to teach tactics and defense to civilians and security officers. I was part of the start of the concealed carry movement. I traveled with the NRA and the Law Enforcement Alliance of America to testify in a handful of states to change their racist policies and laws.

Thus began my journey as the Black Man with A Gun™. I started a national gun club in 1991 to foster the growth of African Americans in the shooting sports. I published a book in 1999. I created a website in 2000. I’ve worked behind the scenes to select, qualify and protect people of color that became involved in Supreme Court cases.

I’ve worked with the NRA. I even tried to get a job there. I’m a life member. I only turned it down because the salary was too low and not close to what they were paying the incumbent. I begged to be a functioning member on the GOA staff and after –way too much back and forth – got a position as the volunteer Urban Affairs guy. I didn’t do a thing with that. I resigned. Too early I guess. I’ve been a voting member on the CCRKBA and done the perfunctory “minority speaker slot” the GRPC but never made the masthead. I’ve worked with just about all the groups out there. My hats off to all the brothers and sisters now working with “x” organization.

This is my attempt to sew all the pieces together. If you will support it, join the email list today so I can build a team to make this happen. We are the Gun Rights Alliance.

The Business of Gun Rights Podcasting

The Business of Gun Rights Podcasting

Today many are trying to find as I did how to monetize a brand new medium.  How do you make your hobby a sustainable income stream?  How do you justify the hours spent creating content for the bean counters in your life?

First a disclaimer; if you are doing this as a hobby or altruistic goals to spread the truth about the US Constitution and gun rights then you don’t have to monetize.  There is nothing wrong with that.  I started off that way.  I found out that I needed to monetize to operate.

Before you seek to make money you need to provide good content for a while.

 

Social Media as you see it today came after the Black Man with A Gun Show Podcast formerly known as the Urban Shooter Podcast.  It is hard to imagine promoting your blog or podcast today without Instagram, Facebook, or YouTube but I did.

Like the pro athletes of yesterday that ran miles, suffered concussions, broken bones and made millions less than the stars of today;  I am in that group.

Over the past twelve years I have tried and did a number of things to pay for the bandwidth, hosting, hardware and software use to podcast.

One of the things I have to do better is to promote the people that have supported  me.  I plan to do that better in 2019.

There is an art to promotion, marketing and selling that is not offensive to your audience.  Nobody likes being sold to nonstop.  We are almost used to it but we don’t like it.

For the business owners that may be interested in sponsoring my work in the future here is a snapshot of my statistics for my podcast.

 

 

I also have an customized app that could be co-branded.  It has had over 8K downloads.

 

For my fellow content creators here are a few tips.

As an entrepreneur in the 2A community that has tried a little of everything to be successful I want to share what I found what works in almost every business.

Here are five ways I know a content creator can make money.  It is easier to write than to achieve.

  1. Crowdfunding
  2. Sponsors
  3. Selling products
  4. Affiliates
  5. Services

 

The gun world is pretty cool. The people are interesting. I’ve been a part of it since 1986.

The subject of gun control is evergreen. The topic is political. There is money to be made and unfortunately wasted. Organizations exploit the hell out of it.  We fall for the shenanigans like clockwork.

My first advice to the new business owner  is to find a niche. The riches are in the niches.

Firearms instruction

Know that there are hundreds of instructors coming up and going out. The ones that stick around, have identified their target audience,  and with rifle precision have gone after them. The shotgun approach or just hanging out your “shingle” and waiting for customers doesn’t work well.

Like my grandma used to say, “if you chase two rabbits, you’ll get none.”

To fill a scheduled class for example, all of your clients should be the same. This is not in looks but in what they want from the course. Some can’t be there for one thing and the other for something else. You have to know what they want and give it to them.

One of your challenges  is going to be that your perspective clients don’t know actually what they want. Part of your process has to be to change that. You have to prequalify them.

That way you ain’t wasting your time.

As an instructor you have to keep learning yourself. Don’t be satisfied with just the NRA instructor certification. The NRA did an amazing job marketing their standard but it isn’t the end all.

You will also need to know marketing, basic business, adult learning techniques, and some crisis management. After every shooting, you have the opportunity for a televised or radio interview. You have to learn how to present yourself in a way that you want and not what the media wants. It’s a skill.

You have to be able to critical of yourself and teaching style so you can determine what market is best for you. Believe it or not, everyone is not going to like you. (I know hard to believe isn’t it?) You might be a great fit though for an all-female class, or not. You might work better with law enforcement, or not.

There’s a lot more but I’ll share the rest later.

 

 

Rev. Kenn Blanchard has been a firearms instructor since 1986. He has traveled abroad armed in over thirteen countries protecting diplomats and VIPs. He has trained with the USMC, Navy, US Army, IDF, US State Dept., FLETC and others. He created African American Arms & Instruction, Inc. training security guards, police officers and civilians in first aid, CPR and firearms use. He became a gun rights activist in 1991 and helped five states get concealed carry reform. He is respected in the firearms industry. He created blackmanwithagun.com in 1999. He is the author of Black Man With A Gun: Reloaded and created the podcast in 2007 that now has reached over 2.1 million downloads.

Why You Should Never Stop

Why You Should Never Stop

I was called into the Gospel ministry as child but didn’t want to be a minister.  I used to pretend to preach before a congregation when out in the woods alone.  As I grew up, I used to watch preachers for their technique and deliver.  The Message was secondary.  I got that through self-study.  As I approached my teen years, I still didn’t want to be a minister.  I tried to do everything I thought was tough.  I joined the Marines at 16 and had to wait till high school graduation to go in with my parents’ permission at 17.  In the military, I was often the one that my peers confided in, trusted, and shared personal struggles.  This continued while I was in while at the same time, doing as much as I could not to be holy.

I had some grand moments during my growth though.  I witnessed to a fellow Marine, and had him give his life to Christ while we were stationed overseas.  I forgot about the event until a few years ago he called me to share that he has traveled around the world with his family as a missionary.  Now as a working pastor, he has done amazing things for the Kingdom of God.  Only God can do that.

God can make a straight line with a crooked stick. – Rev. Kenn Blanchard

I asked the Lord to help me with communications and He gave me the ability to learn almost any language super quick.  The kid that stuttered, mumbled and hid in his artwork can pick up a language almost instantly.  Only God will do that.

I discovered podcasting in 2007 and started using it as a hobby to stay in touch with people in the gun community I had met from 1991 on as a gun rights activist and author of a book called Black Man With A Gun.  Being a part of the gun rights argument was a training ground for politics, sociology, faith and social media.

At one time I was the most famous person of color in the gun rights community.  It had many negatives.  I published a book talking about gun rights.  When I accepted my Call to ministry, it was after I was known internationally as the Black Man With A Gun, church elders were against it (to say it mildly).  In their closed conversations, I was a killer, a hired gun, not ministry material.  My pastor at the time had to fight for me.  On my day job at the time I was also a trainer of law enforcement, served on protective detail for the Intelligence Community and traveled the world during executive protection.

Ten days after my initial sermon, the world changed with 9/11.  Security was forefront on everyone’s minds.  I was not such an enigma.  As a podcaster, I tried many things over the years.  I have kept up with trends and learned best practices.  Today that podcast is almost at 2 million downloads.  It is international.  It has put me on television, radio and four documentaries.  I have learned that preaching and defending the Gospel is easier than defending the US Constitution.  It has been tough.  There have been many times when I asked God if I should quit being the Black Man With A Gun.  His answer has been not yet.

As a minister, I was called to Pastor and used my notoriety to reach men like me.  I appeal to men that believe in Christ but not traditional church.  Motorcyclist, law enforcement, military, gun owners are some of my target audience I have been able to reach.  Through the podcast I have helped four men now, that were contemplating suicide.

Because of that podcast, I created a ministry specifically for this group of “wilderness” dwellers like me called the Speak Life Church.  The podcast has become a nonprofit online church now.  I have established it so that I can travel and do pastoral things without the restrictions of a church board, etc.

With God All Things Are Possible.

The SpeakLifePodcast.com is amazing.  It is only a year old as of 2019.  It has given me the template along with my experience in podcasting that I wouldn’t have gained if the Lord had told me to stop to grow.  This website, apostle radio.net is being created to give ministers and pastors interested in podcast a coach, a producer and a platform to spread the Gospel as Jesus commanded in the Great Commission.

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”  Matthew 28:19-20

Pandora

Pandora

The Pandora app made a difference in my podcast.  In October 2017, I created the Speak Life Podcast. I implemented every organic strategy I could to make it a success. The best thing I did was give it to God. All the other so called strategies didn’t help that much.

With God all things are possible.

Some time in November 2018 the podcast received about 800 downloads a month.  At the time that was its’ zenith.  Then something incredible happened.

I was asked if I would like to have my show placed on the online music platform known as Pandora. The streaming music giant was getting into podcasting and wanted to beta test a few podcast. It was a win that only could have come from the Lord.

This is a podcast of encouragement. It a show to restore peoples relationship with God. It shares that we have the freedom not to sin. The same power that crushed death and raised Christ from the dead; is now at work in us through God’s energizing Spirit. This podcast seeks to build faith, produce joy and point out God’s work in our lives.

After being on Pandora, in December 2018, the show statistics reached 3000 downloads that month.

As of this post in January 2019, we are over 4200 downloads.

Pandora is now the leading aggregator for this podcast.

The Apostle Paul was known for his missionary journeys. His work laid the foundation for the spread of the Gospel. he launched churches near port cities that helped the good news go viral. This is the power of podcasting today.

Recognizing the influence of tech and mobile computing the Lord has called me to provide a way to feed the Spirit. In my heart, Paul would use podcasting to spread joy, encourage, and strengthen the people.  Remember to:

get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. To be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you  -Ephesians 4:31-32

Through the Speak Life podcast I seek to spread the love of Christ and the Gospel message to the world.

Speak Life Podcast now available on the Pandora App.

 

You can listen on Pandora too.

How To Make Your Podcast As Fierce As Beyonce

How To Make Your Podcast As Fierce As Beyonce

If you are serious about your business, then you want it to be fierce. You want it to be intentional and powerful. Think about that for a minute. If your podcast, which represents your brand, you, is not intentional or powerful then what is it? Why would anyone want to waste their time or money with it?

The American singer, songwriter, actress, record producer, and dancer from Houston, Texas that you either love, hate or are indifferent about has been fierce in her rise. Even if you are not a fan, you know her name.

She rose to fame in the late 1990s as lead singer of the R&B girl-group Destiny’s Child. In 2014, she became the highest-paid black musician in history and was listed among Time’s 100 most influential people in the world for a second year in a row. Throughout her career, Beyoncé has sold over 100 million records worldwide, making her one of the world’s best-selling music artists.

 

Mrs. Knowles – Carter is baaaaaaad.

 

To make your podcast as fierce as Beyoncé you need to do four things.

  1. Know Your Why
  2. Find your audience
  3. Be IntenseB
  4. Be Consistent – (Beyoncé has sold over 100 million records worldwide)

 

It’s hard.

One of the things that podcasters struggle with after they start is why they are still doing this. It is really easy to meander through until you realize you are lost. You start asking yourself what am I going to talk about next. Who cares if I miss an episode? And you wonder if you are even being heard. If you know your why. You can chart a course. You can plan your show. You will know who you are trying to reach. The why of your podcast is your content.

 

You got this.

Let’s say you have a podcast called Warrior Cast. You are a martial artist and a nerd. You can talk DragonBall Z-speak, like you were related to Vegeta. Talk about those two things in your show. Got deep with it. Share the nerd knowledge. Geek out on the anime. Also make sure you talk about the fight game, interview fighters, give your audience the benefit of your fails, your successes. Help the person just starting. Talk about the differences of the styles. Talk about a form in Tae Kwon Do and how it was stupid or how you incorporated it into a real fight. There is power in the niche.

 

Knowing your why will help others find you. There are people looking to hear what you know, hear the people you know, laugh, cry, groan, disagree and agree with the stuff you know. The funniest site at a wedding is to see “single ladies” jump up when they hear Beyoncé song. You have to see a seventy-five-year-old grandmothers twisting their wrist like “Queen Be.”

 

 

Be U

Your audience is just like you. Or the you that you are presenting. (Be careful there) you can’t be someone else. You are you. You are unique and have your own talents and experiences. Use those talents and experiences to get what you want, but don’t sacrifice yourself to do it. And you also have to live your life for you.

Fierce is not lukewarm. Take a side. People will put you on one whether you take one or not. Embrace it. Be critical of a form, a fighter, a technique, so others can either agree or disagree with you. Fierce means intensity. Don’t be boring. Don’t talk me to sleep. Have some energy in your show. Don’t scream at me but keep my attention. Podcasting almost has no rules. The main one is be trustworthy. If I take the time to listen to you, don’t make me sorry I did.

 

Now that you have my attention. Now that I like you. I am going to fit you in to my schedule. The successful podcasters don’t quit after seven shows. They know who they are talking to, even though they don’t see them. They are talking to friends. They are talking to people from their gym. People just like them all over the world. If you say you are going to be somewhere every week on Thursday, be there. Consistency is a good thing. They can listen to your show anytime they want but it should come out and be available the same day of the week. I know it’s tough. It’s a commitment. Podcasting is dope but it ain’t easy.

 

You got the floor

On a stage (your podcast) you can act like someone you are not. We have all done it. One of the problems is that you can’t sustain it. You also will become a people pleaser and eventually will not like who you have become. Being yourself is important because you will not be happy otherwise.

 

The good news is someone is looking for you. They are looking for a tribe to belong to where the people are like you. They are most likely not next door. You may have to search to find them but they exist. They are looking for the real you.

 

Be fierce!

What Donald Trump Can Teach You About Social Capital

What Donald Trump Can Teach You About Social Capital

President Donald Trump is different. The one thing the current POTUS does better than anyone is break the rules. Podcasting is like that too. Podcasts are not radio broadcasts. There are unwritten rules in podcasting but rules are open to interpretation.

Your podcast doesn’t have to follow anyone else’s template.  Just like President Trump is not following any of the templates before him.  It is obvious that President Trump is used to doing whatever he wants. He says whatever he wants. While as a public figure it is entertaining, as a leader, he has made it hard to follow him.

You on the other hand want people to follow you.

Entertainment works in the short term unless you stay in that lane and everyone knows it, i.e. comedy show.  Unfortunately, people will queue up for a train wreck, a street brawl and a cat video.  They won’t stay long for either of those.  You are looking for long term relationships to be successful.  You do so by breaking the rules in marketing and doing the opposite of what POTUS is doing with social capital.

 

Social Capital is “those tangible assets [that] count for most in the daily lives of people: namely goodwill, fellowship, sympathy, and social intercourse among the individuals and families who make up a social unit”. Lyda Hanifan

 

Real estate mogul and former reality TV star Donald John Trump was born in 1946, in Queens, New York. In 1971, he became involved in large, profitable building projects in Manhattan. In 1980, he opened the Grand Hyatt, which made him the city’s best-known developer. In 2004, Trump began starring in the hit NBC reality series The Apprentice, which also spawned the offshoot The Celebrity Apprentice.

 

A lifetime Democrat and supporter, Trump turned his attention to politics, and in 2015 he announced his candidacy for president of the United States on the Republican ticket. After winning a majority of the primaries and caucuses, Trump became the official Republican candidate for president on July 19, 2016. That November, Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States, after defeating Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

 

To obey a rule is a choice.

 

To disobey a rule is to choose to deal with the consequences of doing so.

 

Authors note: Our President has said things that are flat out disrespectful for a person in the Highest Office of the Land IMHO. As an entertainer, that works (what the POTUS is doing) As a leader of the United States of America, history will tell. 

 

“If Hilary Clinton can’t satisfy her husband, what makes her think she can satisfy America?” (deleted Twitter post, 2015.)

“Number one, I have great respect for women. I was the one that really broke the glass ceiling on behalf of women, more than anybody in the construction industry.”

 

“We won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated.”

–Donald Trump on his performance with poorly educated voters who helped him win the Nevada Caucus, Feb. 23, 2016

 

As a podcast you can say whatever you want too.  Your choices has consequences.  There are at least 13 countries that won’t let your show in, if you are not family friendly (blue).

But that is not all.  You can choose the length of your show, the frequency of it, the tone, and color of it.

If you are not monetizing your show to the general public then you really can do and say what you want. The currency is social capital.

Pod- people get paid indirectly today for their work. My wife asks me after every speaking invitation I receive the same question. “Did you get paid for this?” When I was speaking in the gun world yes, in podcasting no.  To be remunerated in benefits and social capital isn’t the same. 

Maybe that is what the President is working towards, social capital with some group.

As stated before, social capital is a form of economic and cultural capital in which you are paid by gaining trust, cooperation, and services and sometimes products for volunteering for the common good. The big plus of social capital is reciprocity, which encourages bargaining.  Podcasting is a long game.  People will do business with you after they trust you.  It’s not like politics where people that don’t like you will still stand next to you.

 

Although I have missed the mark on this post with the “craziness;” here’s the purpose of what I was really trying to share:

  1. It’s more important to understand the purpose of a rule than it is to follow it.
  2. A very famous man has gotten very far not obeying the rules. You can too.
  3. Podcasting can be amazing for you if you are true to yourself, and your audience.
  4. Gain social capital before you look for riches.

Money is made in podcasting through affiliates, training, speaking, and selling to people that have an affinity with you.  It’s more than “likes.” You can’t buy a sandwich with a Facebook “like.”  The President is teaching you what not to do for long term success in podcasting.

Be unique but don’t be an ass.

Keeping you out of Jail

Keeping you out of Jail

This week on the podcast, Kenn interviews John Pierce, Esq. a longtime friend, gun rights activist and now attorney that is strong in support of the Second Amendment for his clients.

This Virginia based lawyer peels the legal “onion” of how to restore your gun rights if you have a felony. He answers the questions about what to do if you have a history in another state and are trying to clear your name so that you can exercise your right to self-defense. I am trying to keep you out of jail.

If you are going through a ugly divorce, involved in a domestic violence case, use a firearm at work, John also breaks down some stuff you should know about the Lautenberg Amendment.

How to defend yourself against false allegations.

My Biggest Podcast Movement Lessons

My Biggest Podcast Movement Lessons

I’ve been podcasting since 2007. The Black Man With A Gun website has been around since 2000. I know 999 things that don’t work. I am still at it. Podcasting still is an awesome medium for marketing even if the firearms industry doesn’t know it yet as a whole. It won’t replace terrestrial radio but has its own space.  It has a long tail.  I love it.

The Black Man With A Gun Show provides a connection to the people I know and would hang out with if they lived next door, around the world. We know each other. I love the people in the gun community.

So before hanging up my microphone, (which I was considering) I decided to go to the largest podcast convention for content creators, movers and shakers to better my craft. My wife still doesn’t understand that I have almost 2,000,000 downloads in a niche. Nor exactly what a podcast is but it’s OK. She’s not the only one. Podcasting itself is less than 20 years old. I went to the 2018 Podcast Movement in Philadelphia. Here are some of my biggest Podcast Movement lessons.

The event started for me with an Ignite speech. It was a chance for me to deliver a five minute talk with (20) PowerPoint slides to showcase my gift of public speaking. I’ve been speaking for 20 years and pretty comfortable on stage. Although this crowd was not part of the gun community per se, communication is still key. I realized during this conference that maybe one of the things I could do to help others is to show how to be better on stage.

The next three days were full of presentations, media exhibits and meeting people. The most important thing was the development of those new relationships, and connecting with like-minded people from around the world. I got to talk to a handful of folks that are changing the world through their content creation.

I got a chance to ask the pros what worked in their markets. What was selling and what was not.

There were probably 1800 people there or more.  All of us had something in common. We had community. We had family. We have something to say.

It was an expensive week, but I think it was worth it. I’m going to spend more time making my show better for my community. Going to do more of what you like. I’m going to be more purposeful in my content. And continue to lead.

I met podcasters like  Entrepreneur On Fire, John Lee Dumas. I got to hang out with John Dennis and Chris Krimitsos.  Really nice guys that are like family to me.

 

 

 

 

 

I got a selfie with the lovable Pat Flynn from Smart Passive Income.  Pat gave the Key note speech and even brought his son into the act (literally).  Nice.

 

 

We celebrated a Hall of Fame moment with my buddy Dave Jackson from the School of Podcasting.  He was actually inducted into the Podcasters Hall of Fame that week.

Podcast Movement 2018

Podcast Movement 2018

I’m going to Podcast Movement in Philadelphia, PA. It’s a big deal if you are into podcasting, and creating content for others online. http://podcastmovement.com

Podcast movement 2018 is THE ultimate gathering spot for anyone interested in or involved with podcasting and the podcast industry.

Philadelphia Marriott Downtown in historical Downtown Philly Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in their choice of over 80 breakout sessions and panels, including the Technical Track, Creations Track, Marketing Track, and an Industry Track.

The goal of Podcast Movement is to bring together and educate active and aspiring podcasters, and to grow the podcast community and industry as a whole. We do this through educational and informative breakout sessions and panels spread across six tracks, enlightening and encouraging keynote presentations, and fun networking events and parties. With over 3,000 attendees joining us over the last five years from nearly 30 different countries (and growing), we are excited to continue the mission of Podcast Movement for many years to come.

The Podcast Movement is for anyone currently involved with, or looking to get into, podcasting and the podcast industry. With over 300 speakers and panelists participating in over 100 different sessions for three full days’ worth of sessions and activities for active and aspiring podcasters.

They will be providing basic technical sessions regarding equipment, software, and editing, to learning the best way to craft a story. If you’re experienced, they know even the greats recognize things they need to improve on, so they’re bringing in the best podcasters and industry professionals to help you take things up a notch. And if you’re looking to refine your production, or looking for new ways to monetize, they’ll have dozens of sessions.

For those who have been doing this awhile like me, the Podcast Movement evolution will feature a large selection of sessions and panels geared towards “behind the scenes teams” with industry professionals. The most successful networks, ad sellers and buyers, statistic providers, and everything in between will be sharing what has been working (and what hasn’t) in the past year, and what they are doing for the future.

My goals are simple. I…

hope to gain (1) new friend.
hope to see old friends.
hope to learn (3) new things, including strategies, techniques and best practices of producing, editing, and sharing content.

hope to make a great first impression with someone who can help me go to the next level of my journey.

It’s going to be nice to be around people that understand what an RSS feed, wave file, royalty free music, downloads, uploads, Heil PR40, Mixer, blubrry, and libsyn are.

I hope to encourage someone else on their journey. If there is anything you want me to pick up, learn or share with you let me know.

I will be presenting a five minute briefing, Monday evening called Ignite with nine other folks chosen to “spark” ideas, enthusiasm, etc. Pray for me to succeed.
