"dave workman" Discussed on Gun Talk

"Right, this is gun talking I'm Tom Gresham photography. Dave workman, a journalist in the firearms world for many, many years. David, just think about a lot of different things going on when we talk about the media. We'll get to that in just a second, but we're seeing a rush to pass more gun control laws that you and I would go, these are clearly unconstitutional in face of the Bruin decision, which came out of the Supreme Court two weeks ago. People ask me, they said, well, why would they do that? Why are they rushing to do that? Don't they know? After explaining to them, you got to understand that for a lot of these gun banners, they just don't care if it's unreasonable or even if it's unconstitutional. Their idea is we're going to pass it and then we'll let the courts work it out. Even if we are pretty sure this will be overturned, at least we can be seen. Here comes the important part. We can be seen to be doing something. Yes, that's a given. And symbolism is really big in the gun control world. You see this for years. Symbolism over substance, we've seen, for example, how the gun laws have failed in highland park. And in evolving and in Buffalo and just about anywhere else, where there's been a tragic mass shooting or some kind of a tragedy involving firearms, you look at it every day in Chicago and that is a massive failure of gun control. Which of course, the other side will never admit, they go to the outer limits to try to dance around any pro Second Amendment laws. This court ruling should have been expected and I think it was, so what they've been doing, I think behind the scenes is planning to figure out ways to dance around this stuff, the ruling, if anybody has not read it, you really ought to reach 63 pages of pure genius by associate justice clarence Thomas. And you can tell that he's been chomping the bit to be able to author a pro Second Amendment Supreme Court ruling. And this one is actually pretty good. He's done a masterful job at eliminating the two step process and going through this business about how it's unconstitutional to require somebody to provide a good cause in order to exercise a constitutionally protected, fundamental right. And it was funny. I got a message on social media here. Well, this has been about 5 days ago and somebody was talking about how the Second Amendment gave us the right and I fired right back. I'd say the Second Amendment does give us anything. It protects an existing right from the government. And now that the Second Amendment has been incorporated to the states, thanks to the McDonald ruling of 2010, which by the way was the Second Amendment foundation case. The states are faced with this too. So they've got a toe the line, but they're trying to figure out how many ways they can dance around the line and cross underneath the line just to drive gun owners crazy because you know they want they really delight in trying to poke firearms owners. And. That suggests to me that they may be about a half a plum who wants to deliberately pick a fight with somebody. Hey, Dave, tell people where they can read your writing, okay? Sure. I'm at the gun mag dot com at liberty park press and American handgunner insider online guns magazine every month in the two way defense column and at ammo land. Or an easier just to do a search for Dave workman and you show up everywhere, man. Well done. Thank you so much. I appreciate you being here. Thank you for your writing and your very clear. Very much recommend they workman's writing to anybody who's interested in this. 8 6 6 talk gun. Gun talk will be right back. Okay, that's just funny. After they've worked and gets off of the air with me here, I shot even though he sends me into back. He says, I'm sitting here, reloading. If you heard me sounds in the background

"They can advertise any of this stuff, anything related to firearms at all ammunition, primers, reloading supply. Any of that stuff. And even hats, even hats and t-shirts, if you said, you know, come on in and get a free hat. They said, well, you know, kids might be attracted to getting a free hat. So you can't do that. Well, sure. Yeah, and to me, it's the first issue. And I know you know this term as well as anybody restraint of trade. That's a big no no. And even if the government does it. So I think I look forward to seeing a lot of litigation over that kind of thing. You have been covering gun rights for decades. And I have to assume that this reactionary activity on the part of the gun banners out there in New York, California, and others to double down on their restrictions on gun owners in the face of the ruined decision doesn't surprise you. No, not at all. You know, I've written several times over the course of the years and especially in the last two weeks how the gun control crowd is stubborn to the n-th degree, the simply do not want to give any ground at all and it's their goal to deprive as many people as possible of their Second Amendment rights and ultimately I think they'd like to erase the Second Amendment from the Bill of Rights and some of these people are fanatical about it. I look at these kind of thing as just another manifestation of just how far out in the weeds these people are emotionally and philosophically, they're just off the rails. Today would hold on a second here, Dave. I've got to take a quick break here when we come back. We'll pick those up. We're talking about Dave workman. Talk about, well, one thing I want to talk about is kind of the way the media

"Trading, who knows. You ever know what you can find when you start doing the whole trade thing. All right, 8 6 6 talk gun will get you in here. I want to come back and want to find out what's going on in the world of gun rights, a lot of things have happened so fast in the last week. You're not going to believe it. And you won't be surprised at what New York is up there. Yeah, turn over your social media. Before we get our guest in here, I do want to get ten man. He's doing hope for a little while. Tim, thanks for your pacing, sir. How can we help you? He Tom, thanks a million. I really appreciate it. I just want to let you know I came across enough wanted to know if you knew anything about it, but I saw an email from Bill Wilson at Wilson combat about a new defense of ammo that they're rolling out called Lehi defense. I guess he likes the company or the bullets so much that he bought the whole company. And the best way I can describe it is it looks like it's a solid copper bullet and it looks like a great big fat end of a drill bit and apparently it's supposed to have a terrific wound channel and it's not going to get clogged up through heavy clothing, drywall, like some other and Lee has all banks ahead of folks. I've had the folks from Lehigh on the show before. They were the ones that, oh, black hills ammo worked with to create the honey badger line of ammo in bullets. And so very similar in form between the Lehigh defense and the honey badger bullets and flows that don't know, yeah, that's a pretty good description. It looks like a solid bullet with a drill bit on the end kind of a look. It doesn't expand, but you get this hydraulic pressure and our reports are that they work very well. Upshot them into ballistic gelatin is a good bit. I actually have a couple of boxes of the Lehi ammo in ten millimeter because there was no honey badger ammo in ten millimeter. So I wanted to make sure I got that. But now that you mentioned, I remember Wilson buying rehab and they'll do a really good job of marketing them. So there's nothing wrong with this ammo and these bullets. And so if you like them, you know, I would get them. Did you buy any? Have you ordered any? I have their arriving on Wednesday. And I think Bill Wilson has a whole plant that he's building to manufacture these in Texas. Okay. Tell you what you ought to do. When you get them in, go out and shoot them. One of the fun things to do is to get like, oh, 6 to 8 water jobs. Just one gallon water jugs. I mean, I just go ahead and buy the 89 cent gallon jugs of water at the store. And line them all up and shoot them. And you get two things. Well, three things. One you'll see how far they penetrate too. You'll get the impact that blows water all over the place. You can see that. But three, in most cases, you can actually recover the bullet. And that's pretty cool to be able to do that. So if you just want to go have some fun out there, you know, set you up a picnic table or something, line up a bunch of one gallon jugs, water, and then just shoot them. Appreciate that. Thank appreciate that. All right, let's bring in Dave workman, our buddy, we've been friends for an awful long time. Of course, a real journalist works at the Second Amendment foundation does a lot of other things. Dave, how are you, sir? Well, I'm fine, Tom, how are you doing? I am well. It has been a busy couple of weeks ever since the Bruin decision popped out of the Supreme Court. It's like a flurry of activity, both lawsuits from our side challenging existing laws and going back and trying to challenge some of the decisions being made. But also activity from the gun band side, such as New York saying where we're going to rush into law ten different laws and even to that's going to get you to comment on this one. They're going to require you if you want a pistol permit. Carry permit to turn over the information of all your social media. What's going on here? Well, it's an invasion of privacy in my opinion. And whether it actually is or not that's certainly up for the legal beagles to sort out, but to demand that someone provide access to their social media material. That is beyond the kin to me. I think that it's nonsense, frankly, and all it is is harassment really. That's what it boils down to. And it moves or if they are able to enforce it, it would move New York right back to where they started. They would have an opportunity. To arbitrarily just deny somebody a concealed carry permit back there. And I think that's really what they're after. Exactly. I mean, for those who didn't quite follow it, the whole idea behind the ruined decision, the Supreme Court decision was New York required you to show proper cost before you could get a carry permit. Proper cause was whatever the issuing officer thought was worthwhile that you were worthy person that you were whatever it is. And almost no one got that because you didn't have quote unquote proper cost. Entire subjective and that was the whole idea is that if it's subjective, we can prevent you from getting the permit. All of this started when way back when they said, we're not going to let any black people get the permits. So we're going to have this rule. That way, no matter who it is, if you're black, you don't get a permit. And so typical of most gun control laws, they're rooted in racism. But now they're

"But now they're saying, okay, they said we can't do the proper cost thing. We can't require that. So we're going to look at your social media post and then we're going to use that to decide if you're worthy or if you're a good person. That's exactly the same thing as proper cause. Yeah, pretty much. And it reminds me of what Twitter and Facebook have been doing to conservatives for a long time. They are fact checkers come in and just say, well, you know, we don't agree with what you say. In fact, checkers say there's something wrong. In this case, it will enable some bureaucrat who's ever been elected by anybody. We don't even know that bureaucrat might be to just hammer down and say, you know what, we don't like what this guy says either about the flag or about antifa or about some of the things. Yeah, exactly. And because of that, we don't think he's mentally capable of having a carry permit. So we'll deny him. And that, of course, is going to be challenging court. It's inevitable. And I hope that it comes up before this Supreme Court because clearance Thomas is not going to have any patience with that sort of thing at all. Now, another one I just popped up out of California that I know that Sacramento foundation is on is the idea that California just passed the law that said, you can't it would actually be a crime to advertise guns or accessories or anything that's about guns to minors. Anything that might even appeal to a younger person in the message is about guns. I mean, I'm just thinking, first of all, forget Second Amendment. This is a First Amendment violation. Exactly. What it does is it impairs a lawful business, which gun shop or sporting goods store from doing business from advertising, whatever it is they've got on sale, even during the hunting season, particularly and any other time where there might be a sport shooting event that would draw customers to the store. They can advertise any of this stuff, anything related to firearms at all, ammunition, primers, reloading supply. Any of that stuff. And even hats, even hats and t-shirts, if you said, you know, come on in and get a free hat. They said, well, you know, kids might be attracted to getting a free hat. So you can't do that.

"FM 97 7 Focus on The White House God's sake How much more carnage are we willing to accept President Biden during last night's nationally broadcast address on gun violence We need to ban assault weapons and high capacity magazines And if we can't ban assault weapons then we should raise the age to purchase them from 18 to 21 He said it's not about taking guns away from the law abiding instead it suffer protecting our freedoms to go to school To a grocery store to a church without being shot and killed The bipartisan group of senators is trying to come up with something that will generate enough Republican support to pass The White House says they want to give time and space for these lawmakers to have the conversations The president will get involved when they believe that it is helpful A lot of questions this week about why they don't think it's helpful for right now in the wake of two horrific now shootings ABC's Karen Travers in Washington Richard katsu ABC News In the wake of multiple mass shootings the past two weeks the campaign to end gun violence in America has never been more urgent Bill Schwartz reached out to a local gun rights organization for its ideas Three fatal mass shootings in Buffalo New York Yuval Texas Tulsa Oklahoma The weapon of choice and AR-15 which stands for ArmaLite rifle not assault rifle The terminology is it's a modern sporting or a modern sport utility rifle That's really all they are Dave workman chief editor and commentator for both gun mag and the Bellevue based Second Amendment foundation After a 2020 massacre in Nova Scotia Canada banned a class of rifles including the AR-15 Workman says asking law abiding gun owners in the United States to give up some 20 million AR-15s is the wrong approach By focusing on the firearm rather than on the more uncomfortable aspect of focusing on mental health and finding out what's going on with these guys the people who are pushing gun control They're after the low hanging fruit What about a longer waiting period Red flag laws are raising the legal age limit to buy an AR-15 from 18 to 21 The state of Florida did that after the Parkland high school shooting Frankly I'm not sure that raising the minimum age limit to 21 is a good idea I think if we're going to do that we have to reexamine letting people vote at age 18 letting them join the military at age 18 Recent surveys indicate 70% of all U.S. gun owners want action to end senseless violence I asked workmen for a conversation starter If you're going to have people from the who are going to who are from the firearms industry you've got to treat their ideas respectfully rather than just dismiss them as soon as they sit down at the table Firearms are now the leading cause of death for children and adolescents in this country Innocent people are targets at schools grocery stores and hospitals Somehow we need to share solutions I'm Bill Schwartz more on Sunday morning's puget sound now northwest news radio Your stock charts dot com money update on northwest news radio.

"Great ocean of land with mountains black standing guard over all that is and was forever. Well being this is the black hills stuff. South dakota replace that made the people who make the best animals on earth a visit black ivan heels dot com for more information for weeks The us supreme court will hear the first gun control case gunnlaug case it is truly heard in ten years heard a variation of this case year or two ago but then they just ruled it moot because new york portal rope-a-dope dio where they the law after the lawsuit was filed. Looked like it was going to go to the supreme court they say. Oh you're serious about johnson. This law change it. Then they made moot. It was factor this case that will be argued new york state rifle and pistol association case. And we'll talk a bit about that in a few minutes but basically it has the potential for changing the landscape when it comes to gun laws a lot if it goes way. I think it's going to go a lot of gun. Laws are going to go down and then sets the stage for what i hope becomes even more i think justice clarence thomas would really like a chance before he retires to take a big swing at protecting the second amendment and getting rid of all the bands on semi automatic firearms all of them and to that point and just basically just ruled them to be unconstitutional. To that. Point the fbi's uniform crime reports are out now the twenty twenty reports. And what's interesting. Is you keep hearing in the media about saul weapon this assault weapon that semiautomatic semi automatic. That your guns houston crime. We've got some crime. The fbi is uniform. Crime reports are the best documents the best data we have on crime and what she used in crime and how crimes are done and who commits crimes. So in any given. I'm reading a report. Written by. Dave workman says in any given year rifles including semiautomatic modern sporting rifles. You know the ones that are called weapons of war recess with gun control crowd calm. Usually involved in two to four percent are murders last year. According to fbi data rifles were used in only four hundred and fifty four out of thirteen thousand six hundred. Twenty gun related murders. Wait let me give those numbers against you. Get this sort of the big number. Thirteen thousand six hundred. Twenty murders with guns okay. Thirteen thousand six hundred twenty of those rifles were used in four hundred and fifty four and all those rifles were semi automatic. That's for all rifles semiautomatic smaller number. But they don't break that down. Okay but the gun control gun ban lobby and the media class says that we must ban this entire classify arms that are used in two percent of murders and that will be the end of gun violence supposedly the gun by. It's a term that they invented to demonize firearms by taking the blame away from the people who actually commit the crimes two percent murders committed with firearms and yet that's where they focus. Why do they do that because they know that they confuse half confused the public into thinking. These are some sort of full automatic machine gun type firearms whether or not obviously in fact later on today we'll have a range report from a twelve year old. Who use one of these very rifles to take his first dear this morning great report. We'll have that little bit later on. It's fascinating that the semiautomatic rifles are the target of the gun ban industry in what they've done is they've chosen and they're you know open about it. They freely admit the plan is to confuse the public because the m16 looks like the fifteen. They're not the same. They don't work with saying they don't function the same. They're not legally the same but because they look alike we can confuse the people out there who don't know into thinking these same guys that the military used in vietnam when they're not it's actually the right that twelve year old used. Go deer hunting with this morning. We'll have that report later today. It's dishonest but all efforts to ban guns are dishonest. All efforts to control for have gun control. Laws are dishonest. They have to.

"Expect the pandemic to slow the push for stronger gun laws in Washington state in the upcoming legislative session. Here's Cara radios Hannah Scott. With the story dealing with the pandemic and its economic and other impacts. Police accountability and issues surrounding systemic racism and equality are expected to be the top priorities in the room in the upcoming legislative session. But you can expect some of the familiar debates as well, including gun safety measures. You are 2021 agenda really reflects the many challenges on lessons of 2020 particularly co bed, historic calls for police, accountability and the unarmed intimidation. It also really reflects the understanding that lawmakers have an incredibly tough job ahead that sent a pandemic has not slowed the gun violence epidemic. Fact is actually exacerbated it. We see rise and all kinds of gun violence, gun sales have skyrocketed and the devastating impacts are being seen and domestic violence. Homicides that are spiking community violence is surging on divan. Mass shootings have broken record. In fact, Rene Hopkins with the Alliance for Gun Responsibility says by last month, the research group Gun Violence Archive. Had already reported a 35% increase in mass shootings in the US from the year before, With 562 Mass shootings in 2020 already reported by the middle of November. That's compared to 417 in all of last year. Researchers say. That's the highest number since they started tracking data back in 2013, and he's steep increase over the past five years. The researchers defined mass shootings as incidents where four more people excluding the perpetrators. Are shot in one location that roughly the same time and those aren't the only concerns. Sadly, experts are really sounding alarms about a suicide crisis that we are also seeing so, Hopkins says. While state lawmakers will have other priorities, they must continue the momentum of recent years on gun safety in Washington. We really can't afford to press pause on the work that we're doing. We need to ensure that our communities are safe from preventable gun violence is we recovered from the pandemic? We're focusing this year on restrictions to open carry. We really have to stop the intimidation through the open, carrying firearms. And this is one of the most alarming trends of that we've seen this year is the increase in armed vigilante activity and threats of firearms as evidence of the need. She points to incidents like The deadly shootings in Kenosha during protests over the police shooting of Jacob Blake earlier this year to just this month shootings at dueling protests here in Olympia we really need have common sense limits on open curation sure that firearms are not used to intimidate or discourage people in public demonstrations. People's First Amendment rights really cannot be jeopardized Democratic Senator Jaime Peterson recently weighing in on that issue, and we've had quite a few examples in The last few months of armed folks showing up at other people's protests with the apparent intent to intimidate or threaten them from being able Tol, sir size their first Amendment rights, So I think we're gonna have a robust question about some of those incidents that we're talking about The Big Bush familiar one. We're also going to be continuing our efforts to have Restrictions on high capacity magazines. We know that high capacity magazines make shootings deadlier, and so we know that restricting access to high capacity magazines will save lives. The effort has come up short in recent years, including this past session. California was able to get a law on the books limiting so called high capacity magazines, those with more than 10 rounds, but it was struck down as an unconstitutional violation of the Second Amendment in August by the ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. That doesn't deter Hopkins, though the California law that was struck down in the ninth Circuit earlier this year is a very expansive van, both retroactively and future, So we really take a different approach in our policy here in Washington state, also to note There has been a request for a non bank review in the ninth Circuit and show. You know, it will be interesting to see whether the full court does decide to take it up. And if they do then, of course, the previous ruling will no longer stand. Gun rights advocates will fight against any such ban on large magazines, which they consistently point out covers most magazines these days. Dave Workman at the gun mag dot com says gun rights advocates will also push back on a proposal to require background checks on all ammunition. Which they believe amounts to a defacto registry. As for the ban on open carry it protests. Workmen notes. Washington has always been an open carry state, and that gun owners know the right to bear arms and defensive oneself and the state is enshrined in Article one section 24 of the state Constitution. Workmen also reiterates a long held position of Second Amendment advocates that passing laws like this do nothing to improve safety because they are gun control laws and criminals don't follow them. But Hopkins says, you know, that's an argument to just falls flat with me way are a country that believes in the rule of law. And if people still choose to open carry more successful and you know, passing this bill this year, then they will have to suffer the consequences. Are the rule of law. And while some of these priorities have been a struggle to get through in the past, Hopkins is excited to see what some of that new blood in Olympia will do this session. As we're looking at the sort of newer generation of elected officials, I think there's just a different understanding of what gun violence prevention efforts look like and can mean now than there was even five years ago. I think the idea that the gun violence prevention is a third real politics. Just no longer true, And I think that our legislatures starting to reflect that, because even though the numbers have not changed as far as the majority's go, Hopkins says, there has still been a shift. As we have seen across our state and the country. The vast majority of individuals, voters really demand more work on responsible gun laws. And so I think, with each new legislator coming on, they're just coming in with a different frame of mind around gun violence prevention, workmen notes, get owners ability to push back on. Some of these proposals will depend entirely on their willingness and ability to get involved and speak up hearings. Bring what is expected to be a very different and very virtual legislative session, Hopkins says. They're ready for it up pandemic does not stop other epidemic. We know it's going to be a really challenging and different session. But we also know that Washingtonians air continued to demand stronger gun laws and ability to keep their communities safe, and that's what we'll be.

There will be consistency and a better delivery of both live and on demand classes. First day for Seattle schools is Friday. Charlie Harder, camo news state schools chief Chris Rake Doll and his deputy for special education and a conversation with parents and advocates for those students. They tell the superintendent that not only is remote learning inadequate to meet their Children's needs, but that in many cases, the kids quickly regressed or had behavioral problems because they weren't getting the services they need raked all ask them to show compassion for school districts, which are also struggling to meet those needs, But he reminded them to have a high expectation. There's no diminishing the positive civil rights, but that is and we expect students to be served. Our billings are open. If that is the only way it could be done and are professionals. How to do that work, and they have an expectation to work with you. But that looks like it's recommended special needs. Parents start with a review of their kids individual education plans with their teacher or case manager and to include the school district in those conversations. If you all up long term care facility, part of a group associated with the outbreak of covert 19 is reporting some positive news Comas Kelly Blier report. Let care Center in Kirkland was the first facility in the state to really get hit by covert cases. Thie groups Facility in Puyallup Life Care Center of South Hill initially saw two cases in the spring, but last month I saw 67 more, about half involving patients in half staff. They report nine deaths. All the fatalities were patients with underlying medical conditions.

It's not exactly comparing apples to apples because the most recent state Department of Health Data is from 2018 before the Corona virus hit. But comparing that data to cova deaths in 2020, we find that the new virus could rank third in leading causes of death. According to The Seattle Times. In 2018, the leading causes were cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer's. With Alzheimer's claiming 963 lives in 2020. So far covert has already claimed 723 lives in King County, and that the death rate is slowing. The year is not over yet. See Romero Comeau News, The U.

Communities that don't have as much access to cope in 19 testing will now have to free testing sites. The story from Como's Ryan Harris those two sites open this week in Auburn and next week and rented the latter under a partnership with King County Health and the nonprofit Clinics of Health Point and the Auburn site staffed by Valley Regional Fire Authority Cruise. Valley Regional chief Brent Swearingen says they're certainly used to what he calls street medicine. But they couldn't scale up the mass testing without the cooperation with the county and each other. When you drive into the site, you're gonna find firefighters. We're in a valley Regional fire pass. You're gonna find South King patches. You're gonna find kitchen sound patches, red patches, And if one department has a hard time staffing department will step in. The idea behind the two sites is to provide testing for communities of color, which can be more vulnerable..
