No where near what main stream tv is. I have a ton of ideas for commercials but I donít have the money it would take for the media to run them or sue them for charging me more for air time because they donít like the message.

I think there is too much money spent on trying to get politicians in line and not enough on educating the voting public.

An unloaded, locked up gun is of great use when that home invasion happens. Iím certain your wife and daughter will ask their therapist why you even have a gun.


We tend to focus on home invasions... That's not the only reason for handy access to guns. I live in town and we get the occasional unfriendly stray dog... even a coyote trying to help himself to the wife's chickens. We have an ordinance about discharging firearms within city limits with an exception where life and property are concerned.

There are guns throughout my household. And my youngest can tell you where most of them are, what caliber they are... and (not kidding here) probably what grain bullet is in the cartridge and what powder we used to load them. Next to me she is probably the most knowledgeable about firearms in the house. Maybe more than my wife and boys. None of that is by accident. Teaching safety and responsibility doesn't have to be a chore. They'll eat up any time spent with them.

I would never live where the risk of a home invasion required me to have a loaded firearm. Never mind have my family live with that risk.
[/quote]

Sadly for some there is not a choice of where they live, but I am with you on sentiment and then again donít think just because you live out in the boondocks your safe, a few years ago there was a rash of home invasions here all at homes out in the county, and that targeted remote or isolated houses, sad thing is when they were finally caught turned out to be a pair of deputies

Crime out in the county is on the rise largely because itís seen as safer by the criminals, largely B&E but home invasion as well

Like others I was raised with loaded guns around so my opinion might be slanted but itís my opinion you and others can have your own till you try to force your view on me and make me comply with it, which is what many of those currently in charge are trying to do, and I think itís about to get very bad in this county, a year ago I would have thought you crazy for talking about a revolution but I think itís coming, there are just to many with widely separated view and beliefs that I just donít see how we can avoid it

I hope we do but BLM is gearing up for war and many others are as well so I think there is going to be several different groups all trying to grab power or hold on to what they already have

They're trying to condition the population to warm up to a reasonable intrusion into your home. For the children.

Iíve posted over a hundred videos of hunting and trapping including choking out a lynx, shooting animals etc. What makes you think they wonít allow it? Have you even tried or are you just regurgitating stuff youíve heard? Try posting one and see what happens. Donít live in the shadow of conspiracy theories. It makes you look stupid to doubt stuff without even trying it first.

There are thousands of firearms centric channels on YouTube... The big thing with firearms content is that YT will usually demonitize it and producers won't make any money off of the content. But there are still plenty of videos. Patreon and other support sites have helped sidestep a lot of YT's crap and helped producers stay afloat.

YouTube videos are great, if you click on them. Are there pro 2A commercials that automatically run before videos anti gun folks watch?

Iíll admit I donít watch the videos they would, so I have no idea what kind of commercials run before those videos.

I can tell you anti gun/ scary gun commercials run during sitcoms and sporting events.


What are the odds folks uneducated or already anti gun search for the pro 2A videos on YT?

We all know why there is an all out effort to legitimize disarming the public. Its not TV ads that are going to stop it.

I'm convinced there is a segment of the population that would love to see things turn violent to use as an excuse to disarm us, even if it means a significant loss of life. There's an unholy alliance out there.

IMO its going to get violent when thugs start disarming people. Not before

Probably right but it may help change the view of them being the boogie man with the impending increase in their use.

Nobody needs to know what or how many guns you have or how much money you make.
