Ep. 689 Pt. 2 – Gun Control Failures and AMA –

On this episode of Student of the Gun Radio BONUS HOUR; It is with no small amount of glee that we share examples of gun control failures with you. These failures are not our opinions, but the gun control failures in the People’s Republic of Massachusetts are documents facts.

The Las Vegas attack was not the worst case of “gun related murder” in the United States. The media knows that is the case, which is why they use words like “in recent history” or “modern history” in their stories about it. We will take a moment to examine the actual worst case of “gun violence” in American History.

Time for an Ask Me Anything, or AMA. You posted your questions in the Liberty Mastermind group and on Facebook. Now Paul and Jarrad will answer many of them.  Yes, of course, we have a motivational music selection for you.
