Education bleg ...

Yesterday, a local radio host went shooting with one of the stations' advertisers and by his account, he had a great time.

But this radio host, in spite of being a claimed second amendment 'supporter', he repeats a LOT of misinformation* from the Hollywood school of firearms knowledge.

So here's the challenge: You've got one hour at a private firing range, with any firearms you choose and any training aids you might need.

What is your syllabus for taking an uneducated (or mal-educated) individual like a radio host or reporter to a point where they're not an idiot about firearms or firearms laws?** Is an hour enough? What training aids would you want ( caliber charts, representative rounds for comparison, demonstrations set up, etc)?




*He's said that a .410 out of a Taurus Judge would 'knock someone back 15 feet', that another chamber in said Judge could be loaded with a kevlar-piercing bullet, that the 9mm is a 'big' bullet, .50 cal rifles are designed to shoot people through concrete blocks, and other jewels that only Hollywood could believe.

**Keep in mind that this training should be such that the individual could no longer report about firearms the way reporters typically do unless they're being willfully misleading.

Withholding your vote ...

... will it work?
If you want to extract the occasional concession for a Republican, fine. But the only way is to make withholding your vote your default position. Let them pander in deed, not just word to earn your case by case transnational support. 
This is a long post ... and sort of rantish. And the comments, geez the comments. I still can't believe how many people really think the GOP is salvagable.

It's not.

But they do make a good point about how withholding your vote advances the conservative cause. I have the answer.

It involves not withholding your vote, but voting for someone who can be identified as Not being the current GOP. Someone like, NOTA.

Someone like ... Not Another Moderate Republican (NAMR).

You see, if the party can't see definitively how many votes they lost by foisting another squish on the electorate, then they'll never change.
