Re: TFC Podcast Episodes

The TFC Short Shot: HB987: Rep. Anchia's Protect the Criminal Bill has been released and is available on Stitcher, iTunes and the http://www.TexasFirearmsCoalition.com website. It is discusses Anchia's bill that will repeal the Texas version of a "Castle Doctrine Bill" that passed as SB378 in 2007. I've also posted the transcript in the 2017 Texas Legislative forum, but it doesn't have the hyperlinks that are in the transcript on the TFC website.

Re: TFC Podcast Episodes

The TFC Short Shot: The Sandy Hook Promise Video - Propaganda Not PSA[/url] has been released and is available on Stitcher, iTunes and the http://www.TexasFirearmsCoalition.com website. It is an analysis of the video and points out filmmakers' tricks along with attempts to paint all gun owners as simmering mass-murderers.

There's an excellent critique of the video on YouTube, but I'm not going to link it here on the Forum. The language used is terrible and that's a shame since his message is spot on.

In this Episode:
I discuss the division among Americans and the importance of Constitutional protections like the Second Amendment.

Show Topics:

  • In The Crosshairs: The Great American Divorce
    In The News: Texas Municipal Police Association working with anti-gun group;
    Women & Guns: Concealed Carry for Women
    Guns & Gear: Houston area gunsmith Ed Vanden Berg
    Today’s Safety Tip: Using holsters safely – a matter of equipment and technique
    Q&A: 1) How about a TFC YouTube channel; 2) I just started reloading. How can I clean my brass?
Have you heard of full30, youtube seems to be less then friendly to conservative issues.
https://www.full30.com/
Full30.com doesn't begin to have the viewership as does YouTube. If, and that's a very big "if," I decide to launch the YouTube channel, I'll use YouTybe. There are numerous gun-related YouTube channels, but if YouTube is a problem, I'll self-host. The Podcast discusses the problem with video production.
