As the rate of firearm ownership rises in the USA so does the rate of gun related injury and death. That simple fact is enough to send the firearm industry into a PR frenzy to pump out false information intended to mislead and frighten the American people. The right to keep and bear arms is not under threat when common sense safety measures are proposed by our elected leaders but the tactics employed by those who make a huge profit from gun sales have fueled a culture of firearm obsession and fetishism. The higher the number of gun related injuries and deaths, the more resistance we see in putting safety policies in place and the bigger the bump we see in sales, largely by firearm enthusiasts and "patriot militia" or anti-government groups. It is time we ask ourselves, "Has our country become gun crazy?"
Gun Owners of America spearheaded a coalition of almost 30 groups this week and sent a letter to U.S. Senators opposing the confirmation of Loretta Lynch to be Attorney General of the United States.
While GOA has been busy coalescing grassroots opposition against the anti-gun nominee, the battle is far from over.
The vote on her nomination could occur as early as next week. And right now, the Republican Senate holds “all the cards” in the fight to stop her nomination. If they hold together, her nomination will be defeated.
And, well it should be. Lynch has said under oath that she effectively intends to spit on the Constitution -- and continue to implement Obama’s unconstitutional, unlawful and anti-gun executive actions.
Next to Obama himself, Loretta Lynch will be the most important “Lynch-pin” in the administration's efforts to permanently obliterate the Constitution. Without the active support of the Attorney General -- who, traditionally, has been the servant of the law, and not the lawless president -- Obama's fraud scheme collapses.
Joining me this morning is Larry Pratt, Executive Director of Gun Owners of America for over 30 years. GOA is a national membership organization of 300,000 Americans dedicated to promoting their Second Amendment freedom to keep and bear arms.
During the first hour, we will be joined by Mike Hammond, legislative
council to Gun Owners of America, who will brief us on the lawsuilt being
filed against Wal-Mart by investors and shareholders concerning the sale
of cerain kidns of firearms.
During the second hour, Dr. George Delgado, pro-life family physican from
San Diego, will tell us about his abortion-reversal procedure, which is
currently being used by doctors nationwide to reverse the effects of
Today me and Hubert will talk about gun violence and it's effect on the community. I myself is a big fan of the second amendment and have a big love for guns. We will explore both sides of the conversation and take callers ideas. Today will be a explicit show and it will also be educational. Tune in and enjoy us exploring the best ways to deal with guns. People die from gun everyday and we need to stop being scared to talk about this.....
Connie Mettler talks with Marcy Boroff, from Renaissance Craftables, one of the east coast’s premier craft show promotion companies partnering with downtown areas and non-profits. Marcy Boroff had worked with her mother, Barbara, on shows for years and took over the business in 2010.
As a craft show promoter, Marcy feels very strongly that it is a partnership between the artists, the downtown areas or non-profits she is partnering with, and the community of festival-goers.
How did this company get from mall shows to the streets of some of the best shopping areas in the East?
We talk about:
the role of the show promoter and why they do it
choosing a location to host a show and starting a new show
building and implementing a marketing plan
the good part of being a show promoter
the bad part and the worst part
building relationships with the shopping areas where they host their events
building relationships with artists
the future of craft shows and their economic impact
