Oath of Enlistment and Instruments of Liberty

Ep. 723 Pt. 3 – Oath of Enlistment and Instruments of Liberty

Are firearms instruments of liberty or toys for playing games? When the possession and use of firearms becomes a state-sanctioned privilege, you no longer have liberty. What is happening right now in Massachusetts is a direct result of privileges supplanting rights.

Professor Paul and Jarrad follow up on the recent State of the Union address. What did we learn from President Trump’s first SOTU?

We have some good news for small businesses who would like to get to the Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show. And, of course, we have motivational music for you, included a blast for the past.
