SOTG 155 – NRA Annual Meeting After-Action Report

There was so much positive news to report from Nashville that we could not squeeze it all into one show. Jarrad shares a “Mookie” story and we have great news for those who have been waiting for the new Sweet Buddha patches.

Paul takes a moment to discuss not just calling out bad behavior, but reinforcing good behavior. The guys personally thank the fans of SOTG who came out to say hello last weekend.

SOTG 156 – Grandma Killed a Giraffe and Liberals are Outraged

We thought that the left supported strong, independent women. Apparently that is only the case when the women follow the left-wing playbook. Tolerant and inclusive liberals came out of the woodwork to issue death threats via Twitter to a woman who posted pictures of her big game hunt in Africa.

Not surprisingly, another big name musician has come out to support an anti-gun/anti-freedom concert disguised as reasonable gun safety movement. You may be shocked and saddened to discover which country music superstar has thrown his cowboy hat in with the enemy.

Student of the Gun Grad ProgramEP 156 Pt2  –  When Animals Attack

Government surveillance is a topic that should be on everybody’s mind. The Patriot Act is up for renewal on June 1st. Did you know that? If not, ask yourself why. John Oliver from Last Week Tonight, puts the contents of the Patriot Act into terms every American can understand. Pleading ignorance is no longer an option. What will you do to help?

During SOTG 156 we talked about a grandma that killed a giraffe and why the liberals were freaking out over the issue. We have a different approach to animals in todays Grad Program bonus hour. This time, the animals hail from Memphis, Tennessee and the victim of their attack is a father holding his baby in a gas station parking lot.
