Harris Makes False Gun Claims
Drew Allen is a Texas-bred, California-based conservative, who writes a weekly blog promoting conservative ideals at drewthomasallen.com. He joined John today to about the threat to the Second Amendment through the Biden Administration and Kamala Harris’ false gun claims.
“The AR-15, which is a semi-automatic rifle, is not technically a “weapon of war;” it is the civilian version of the primary rifle that the U.S. Military uses. The rifle that is used by the military has the ability to be fired in a fully automatic mode, which means the gun fires continuously when an individual pulls the trigger a single time and keeps the trigger engaged. Semi-automatic rifles are no different than handguns in the sense that one pull of the trigger equals one round fired.” – From an article by the DailyWire pointing out Kamala’s lack of gun knowledge.
Guns: “America doesn’t need a gun check. We need a heart check … We need to value life.” – Richard Rush. ” We have devalued life and it shows,” – John Rush They continued on to talk about the prevalence of guns, and the students would have guns in their cars or trucks and it wasn’t a big deal.

Joined the Conversation
Dennis from Denver called in and talked about the Second Amendment and how conservatives should communicate better with each other and different ways to contact each other.

If we were disarmed they would be horrible to us.” John’s commentary here.
