National Association for Gun Rights – an Interview with Dudley Brown – Ep. 713

Today’s show rundown:

Mark introduces us to Dudley Brown, the president of the National Association for Gun Rights. We get a brief review of where Dudley has been and what he’s done. Dudley get right into Gov. DeSantis and Florida – special session for re-districting but he inserted constitutional carry in there as well. Dudley talks about these so called “pro gun / pro second amendment” Republicans that are hiding because thy have never had to vote on it.

We get into what Constitutional Carry is and what Dudley’s group is tryin to do. 24 States have constitutional carry…107 million American Citizens live under a rule where you do NOT need a permit to carry a firearm. Places like Nebraska and Georgia, and Florida are next for constitutional carry legislation being passed. If a State passes this law, can a city over write this? Dudley says no. In some states, constitutional carry has areas where you are not allowed to carry.

What has happened in all these states that got constitutional carry? The Left says things like we would have to make new gutters cease of all the blood that would be flowing. The simple fact is, statistics are proving quite the opposite. Our culture has a lot to do with people’s perception of guns. You watch movies today, and everyone is killing people with automatic weapons, and it’s one scene after another. It leaves the impression that this is what’s going on in our world today.

We talk about the new Supreme Court nominee. Dudley gives us his take on whether they confirm her, he believes that she will be confirmed. The weak-willed republicans that will be voting for her. There are an awful lot of weak willed republicans in places where Republicans don’t need to be weak willed. Do you all think this is a big change in the Supreme Court? Are we trading a liberal for a liberal? Mark believes we will see some bizarrely written dissents.
