No one had any segments ready and several contributors weren't feeling well, and so Weer'd, Oddball, Steve, and David got together to have a round table of 2nd Amendment news and miscellaneous discussion.

We talked about:

  • The COVID Vaccine and the changes to the lockdowns;
  • a new Kansas law that would recognize all carry permits (despite Kansas being a Constitutional Carry state);
  • Anti-Gunners that are targeting State Preemption;
  • Bloomberg targeting "gun influencers" on YouTube;
  • and why should you worry about gun control in a world of 3D Printers?
