Constitutional?  He doesn't care.

 

Overstepping his authority?  Doesn't care.

 

Is there a strategy just to waste the money of the second amendment lawyers?  Frivolous.

 

 EXPORT  , 2A doesnt say a thing about Exporting .  The Alphabet bois  Dont want the competition of selling to overseas:)

Constitution isn't only the Second Amendment.  Lots of other rights like private property.  Telling a business where they can sell is kind of totalitarian.  I know we do it to punish certain nations but if Australia doesn't want US Guns let them pass their own law.

 

But I'm sure our Injustice Department thinks it is fine.

 

Another executive order defeating the legislative process I assume.  And we set up our government so as to not have a king so I was told in Civics.

I thought he actually shared quite a few facts. And doesn’t everyone want to make money at what they do for a living?

Posting on social media is a living?

Yes for many people. and for some a very good one. He also does gun and firearms reviews. These guys are the ones running the gun industry magazines out of business. I think Hickok45 makes a better living on social media than he did as a teacher. I also find these people to be a better source of news on the firearms industry than anything in the mainstream media. Just how technology has changed the world

I watch some of these. Guys like Hickok45 and a few others. But they don't go in for bombast and self-promotion. Sell me information, not speculation and phony indignation and fearmongering.

I guess I don’t see it as phony indignation. I’ve watched his channel for years and he always seems to believe what he’s saying. It is after all his opinions on his platform . And I wouldn’t say he’s fear mongering, unless you believe the government is actually here to help you. It’s like anything else if you like Hickok45 and not him just change the channel. But Hickok is really no different, he’s advertising for Buds , and ammo and accessory companies “ and I personally don’t see anything wrong with that” Many social media platforms make a pretty good living and are becoming more trusted than TV, newspapers or magazines. People have always accused the the NRA , GOA and other pro gun groups of fear mongering to raise money, which in some cases is true, but they also do some good spreading the news and suing the government. Personally I like the advance in technology, it gives us far more sources to get our information/news from.

The reason there are so many executive orders is Congress has little to no interest in doing its job of legislating. They have the power to rein this stuff in, but it’s easier to let the executive branch fill in the vacuum and take the heat than actually take a stand or be responsible for anything. They’re fat and lazy, just like voters.

These are rough numbers, especially because you don’t know how much he makes in endorsements. YouTubers/social media personalities can make a pretty good living if they are popular enough

That’s his choice and my choice to ignore him.

Hickok is totally different from this dude that just flaps his lips and tells you what you can find yourself. Hickok is actually educational and very rarely gets into any politics.

The NRA, Second Amendment foundation and groups like that give me plenty of news on what’s happening.

In the 1770s, a large number of folks living in the American colonies wanted remain under British rule.  Their counterparts are those who support today's administration policies.

 

With a tip of my Stetson to my Australian friends, and to those who post videos online, my main concern is for the preservation of Constitutional rights and the separation of powers, not the availability of American firearms outside the USA.

 

Living in a  democratic republic should not mean subservience to stupidity.

And that’s what’s good about social media, more choices. I like the Second Amendment foundation but find the NRA sadly lacking anymore. I like Hickok , I don’t know if I would call him educational but I do enjoy his gun reviews. Buds seems to keep him in guns to review and federal seems to keep him in ammo. Hopefully the new owners of federal will continue to

If you’re complaining about him you’re not ignoring him, if you were we wouldn’t be having this discussion. But that’s what’s great about the internet there are so many sources of information/entertainment

I will be ignoring him from now on, I heard him once and that’s enough for me!

It is no wonder he fought so hard when YouTube canceled him, then reinstated him but demonetized the videos.

Well we got no primers, no powder  so now no import of guns..I'm thinkin' that while out wanker Prime Minister was visiting your wanker President there would have been some whispering in the ears by both, plus the Maine incident [ condolences ] would not have helped.

No apology for referenced 'wankers !

A few donations to the right campaigns, a gift here, a relative employed there -- next thing you know, export licenses are back.

 

According to google-fu, 7-9 million guns are produced in the U.S. annually, but only about 500k or so are exported. Kind of a drop in the bucket, really. And I don't see U.S.-made firearms as the weapons of choice in the hands of the groups Biden claims are being targeted by the export ban.

 

Symbolism over substance. Want to go after human-rights violators? Banning U.S. export of guns they don't use is an unsurprising action.

 

Edit: Blocking the export of guns to deny them to people who aren't likely to buy them makes just as much sense as trying to stop crime by taking guns away from people who aren't criminals.

I could think a few better names for those two wankers but I couldn’t put them on here!

I disagree about the NRA , I get updates from them all the time.NRA/ILA has an abundance of info on new gun laws. I trust them much more than these single squawkers that say nothing. They refer to a “source had told me” blah blah . Yea right!:lol:

I guess we’ll just have to disagree on this one . It’s been proven Wayne and his crew have lied to and spent money that were not in the members interest. Until he and his crew are gone my support will go to GOA and the Second Amendment foundation. It’s a shame what the NRA has turned into

I agree, BB.  The NRA while very helpful for many years has pretty much abandoned us recently in favor of their own version of corruption and money grabbing. They print just enough or say just enough to sound relevant but mostly the smaller Second Amendment organizations are doing a much more active job in fighting the fight that still needs fought... it's sad but true.

 

Several channels on YouTube that are very pro-gun and pro Second Amendment are worth watching. Nothing wrong with that.  This is after all, the new face of information sharing. Hickock45 is certainly one as is Mr. Gunsandgear and certainly Colion Noir.  Both of these guys are always up to date and give accurate information on every Second Amendment issue coming down the pike. Objective and rational and articulated quite well.

 

 And yes, making money off social media is not only a job but a career for many. And some of the monetary earnings would make attornies jealous.

Wayne spending money has nothing to do with the info that they send out. Especially NRA/ILA. I will agree about and the Second Amendment foundation and Gun Owners of America and Ohio Gun Owners. They're great!

If it wasn’t for the NRA this forum would be about Old West recipes, candle-making and primitive woodworking. 
 

Too many people seem to forget what the NRA has done for us over the years. The rest of these gun organizations pale in comparison regarding accomplishments.

And if YouTube is paying him that much just think how much money they are making off him . I can’t imagine it’s a fair and equitable deal when you’re the only game in town. But fortunately Rumble seems to be gaining some traction

I haven't forgotten what the NRA has accomplished I just wish they'd act like they did back in the 80s and 90s when they were the power house in gun rights.
