So, taken to a logical conclusion, citizens have no right to own anything. Which as most of us know or at least strongly suspect, is the end game with these people.
Without a doubt.

Hello Everyone, sorry I fell off the radar here, lots of good information and advice, I read as much as I could before going in/in the waitroom.

The interview was with Time Magazine. It turned out to be a photo shoot, then the interview was actually the opportunity to say literally whatever we wanted about the 2nd amendment/firearms in America, and the only editing they said they would do would be to remove empty air times. They were true to their word. I chose to speak about the history of the 2A, as there were many there speaking on current events.
I am on the cover of the magazine, along with 300 or so other faces haha.

There is an online version, where you can click on me and here my audio.

I don’t know how I missed this thread earlier, but very well done on that recording. I’m curious as to how Time got ahold of you?

^^That reminds me of another one. In reference (ostensibly) to "assault rifles", you hear a lot of "These are weapons of war that are designed to kill!! Citizens have no right to own them!!!" hysteria.

Well, if "weapons of war" is the standard, virtually every firearm was originally designed to be a "weapon of war". And if "designed to kill" is the standard, well, that's the whole purpose of a firearm. So, taken to a logical conclusion, citizens have no right to own anything. Which as most of us know or at least strongly suspect, is the end game with these people.
A more effective argument against "assault weapons" as weapons of war is to ask the person you're speaking with to name two countries that use any of the semiauto rifles people place into this category as the primary arm of their infantry. There aren't any, because without full auto function they would be hopelessly outmatched by any other military's guns. Semiautos are simply unsuitable for that purpose but they're downright handy for citizen uses.

Remember the bogus editing done by Katie Couric, and record your interview yourself. Preferably with an open-carry video recorder, but surreptitious audio recorder if need be.

Congratulations on being included. :tiphat: Thank you for the link. Those are some stories, from heart warming
to heart breaking and everything in between. They must rotate the stories as yours was one I did not hear. I will
check back w that video every so often to see if I'm correct on that point.
Some of those stories like Pastor & firearms instructor or Trauma surgeon & self confessed gun lover . . . wow

Thanks. Last year I got scuba certified, and one of the other students there was a writer/podcast director for Lone Star Gun Rights (Derek Wills). Obviously me being a firearms enthusiast/instructor we became friends, and somehow he got asked to do the interview and to get some others to come and speak. Couldn't pass up the opportunity.
