I mean those just off the top of my head because I was able to hear those a lot of it was network a lot of meeting a bunch of people from a bunch of different places. Man I mean it was just hard core second amendment advocates out. There and I was proud to be a part of it. So that's what I did. Did I talk about Building this Ruge ten twenty two. uh-huh not not yet you did. Oh Yeah Oh you well you showed it last week just for does I didn't do anything with it because I have have to pick up some ten round magazine.

Eric from Iraqi veteran. Eighty Eight Who Else Oh Heller from DC versus Heller to that guy is the coolest guy out there and makes no big deal about what he did even though everybody was go. Oh my God you're Heller. He's what you know what I mean. I mean he did what he had to do Just a lot of really cool. People like Reverend Ken Blanchard. WHO's one of the reasons I'm in second remember advocacy is because And just a lot of friends of mine at this point because the work we've done so I don't have a ton of pictures which sucks because because it's like when you're hanging out with your friends as a dude you don't really take a bunch of photos and I had to change my attitude about that mainly because people get excited all all social media stuff like that and it gives you a bunch of content which I don't like stand my friends this content but the second amendment thing in a rally was content a lot of people talk negatively about it. And I'm like do. There is no national level bill out there. There's no big thing to fight. There were no oh big money. Organization's behind it or taken credit for it Like they did that on purpose. Just so people say. Oh that guy's involved. I don't want to be involved oft it was about being actual grass roots and seeing what you can put together. I think it was successful. But Hey if you didn't come and you say it wasn't successful didn't Kinda Kinda SORTA if you didn't make the effort to get there. You didn't make an effort to make it a success so look at that hour you want But I thought it was amazing. Oh the next day day ahead breakfast on Sunday with Kevin Dixie This guy named Captain Peterson that helps kids from underprivileged homes and jacked up situations -Tuation. He actually takes them out deep. Sea Fishing Eric from Iraqi veteran and Ballistic Inc the T shirt company. Makes all the t shirts for Eric. Now Kevin winn-dixie and Jenna Hutchinson from clear chamber. All of us have breakfast together and it turned into a pretty much two and a half hour second amendment discussion so it it was just a great weekend of networking and getting together and also new generations. The Second Amendment advocates came from California on your Colorado. They'd never done anything. And we're interested in starting their own groups starting movements where they're from so I saw the people that showed up is pretty much hard hard. Core Cadre of Second Amendment advocates that networked met up and went back to their homes with a whole bunch of new names a whole bunch of motivation and a whole bunch of context. I think what happened here is GonNa be huge an echo through the movement because it went out everybody came together got some information made some contact some education and now they scattered to the winds. I think we will see fruit from this tree for years to come. Awesome awesome some. I'm I'm actually glad you gotTa Make It. I mean you know. It's a little bit of a trip for me so I think the the the thing is is the thing that you know. Of course I say it's a long trip which it is but then you know derrick from kids safe foundation. He made made it. Yeah Kerry from from her. She's from Washington state she made it But again it's up to us individual pooping on anybody. That didn't make get but if you didn't come have reasons you didn't come and then say it sucked and it was a waste of time. Well you can't have both. Yep So do you want to. Ah Tony being the you know huge activist. You are I just WanNa say thanks for working the polls today and and and then hurry on here but up to get back here on the podcast. So I'm a little tired. We we we did the polls Because I have a lot of experience working. You can't be me and not laugh at the fact that I'm a poll worker. I'm sorry but I got but we had to train people from other tables and other districts today and it just took a lot more time than it usually did But it's important. A lot of people came out voted because in Jersey all eighty assembly seats. were up for reelection. Well so because you know even though it's election day in a lot of places here where I live there was absolutely nothing really. Yeah which which is is good and bad because that means our our legislature that we don't like the past everything and never said anything onto the voters. That's that's what I'm saying. I mean of course as we know the views and opinions eccentric et Cetera. We'll read that later. So what did I do in firearms. Well I didn't do anything in firearms instead. Did stuff with knives blade. Each show has their West edition once a year out here. It's in Portland so it's close. I went up to it got to see all kinds of knives You know the big makers Asia. They're the little makers custom knives or there. It's a lot of fun. I got this cool little cool little hogue matt from Hogue Knives and the gun people to they're they're pretty cool all the all the big names. Are there little names.

They had set me that Little bench grinder one last year but I was talking to one of the guys there. He was showing me their new stuff. But then of course we got off on the Tangent of firearms firearms tonight so I literally talked to him for like a half hour dot on knives so you know because most people who enjoy wait knives a lot of them like yeah so that that was my eventful weekend trying to think Tony's adjusting cameras yes I guess that's that I'll move into the announcements now.
