Welcome to the live, the sheep podcast. My name is Jeff Dowdell and I have been a licensed firearm dealer for the last 14 years. And this podcast, we talk about all things related to the second amendment, as well as my throne, a sports story or something going on in everyday politics. So welcome. Welcome. Welcome. It is the first podcast of 2022. And if you remember. The last podcast, if you listened to it, I had discussed what I was going to take a break and determine what, you know, what it is that I want to do with this podcast. Was I going to continue it? And you know, the break helped me a little bit. It cleared my mind and you know, I'm going to, I'm going to keep going. I have trouble stopping things. I start things. And but are very, it's very hard for me to stop something. Sometimes what people pay just to loyalty dedicated. Once I start, I just hate, I hate to quit anything. You know, I'm going to take a different approach, but try and have a little more fun with it. Experiment with things, try new things, maybe talk about different topics. You know, I, don't just different aspects of it. Not trying maybe. You know, part of the pressure is trying to be so topical about exactly what's happening at that very moment in the, in the world, in terms of the, of the second amendment and any new legislation or things going on in the, in the Congress and the state legislatures and trying to stay on top of all of it. And honestly it can be, it can be exhausting and there's people out. I listen to, I love their podcast and they do this every day and I don't know how they do it. So I may take a different approach, look at, you know, doing podcasts that might be a little bit more evergreen and more historical in nature. But also stayed on top of what's going on in the world. And you know, just use this as my, as a voice for me. So how did I have. I hope everybody else did had an opportunity to spend time with my kids and have some fun and they are moving some equipment outside. I don't know if you can hear that, but anyway, thanks have definitely been interesting in this world. And one thing I just wanted to, I want to touch on as my opening article is, as our opening podcast is just a little bit about. What I see one issue I see going on with this world and it, it really jumped out at me. Over the break, I ran across two articles and they were not in response to one another. That came out very similarly to each other. One was in the Arizona daily news. And it's a title with down the barrel of a gun. How second amendment activism can be a gateway to active. And then the other one is going to ownership is political violence now. And I was in the American conservative and that title might be a little deceiving, but anyway, down the barrel of a gun, how second amendment activism, activism can be a gateway to activism. They go in and they talk about the gun culture, quote unquote and gun culture night, a review, a visit to a gun gun store, a gun show that they went to. And instead of sprinkled among the swords boxes of sutures in night, vision goggles, where the insignia of the modern extremist far, right, bright yellow patches for the oath keepers, holsters, including grade with the logo of. Three percenters. They stall at the back. So paperback copies of the anarchist cookbook, which describes how to make homemade bombs along with a cook with a book called the component high explosive mixtures nestled in the middle of a show or the explore man proudly displayed Nazi memorabilia as metal SWAT sketches, sweats patches. He says it was one of those things that the far right experts we use to get in the doors to do Joseph. So the premise of this article was that guns. And the gun culture is an activism to insurrection and revolution. And again, this is the left that can't let go of January 6th. They believe, you know, white supremacists and that they w his attack on our country and on our, on our constitution. And while I don't condone anything that went on there, one, there was not a thing. They're the only gun was held by the Capitol police. The only person killed was done by the Capitol police. There is a lot of documented evidence now that the, there were FBI plants in them in there. And so. January six looks like it was more construed than it was a, just a swelling up of sentiment of taking over the country. But the left wants you to believe that those of us that are our second amendment supporters are really. To take over the country and destroy the constitution. And that was the purpose of this article. Now with other articles, gun ownership is political violence is, is a little bit more in terms of that gun ownership is critical to this for the constitution in the article that references that in the politics. Explain how heavily are men formed the foundation of political order. And there, he says that violent coercion, even the form, bloodless, potency overrides both the wealth of shirtless plutocrats and the inheritance of claims of the Gentry in this, he, his article talks about that. It is important that we recognize the importance of the co of the second amendment and the second the constitution. Built on top of the second amendment is heavily armed. Men are necessary, but insufficient condition for the rule of law, the us constitution and mere documents, subject to revisions and manipulation can not alone protect the right to keep and bear arms. Rather, the inverse is true. Keeping and bearing arms as an act of political violence is all that. The constitution. And that is definitely true. And if you go back and you look at society and you determine, and you see what happens when they start removing people, the right to bear arms, and you look across the world today, and where is the most the greatest restrictions it's for those people who don't have the ability to protect themselves and defend themselves against. Their own cut government, if necessary. Now we don't ever want that to come to bear. I don't want to have to go to war against my own government. I don't want to civil war, but I have to be able to stand there and protect what I believe are my rights. And. Our founding fathers felt that that was true. And that is why the second amendment is there. And the second amendment is the, is what the entire constitution is built on and what our entire, all of our freedoms are built on without it, we have nothing. And that is why this pockets is important to me. That is why. I'm going to continue doing it. And you know, this, you look out at this, this our country right now and the sentiment out there and how greatly divided we are. Now. There have been times I believe where we've been even more divided. So I believe we can, we can come back together. And I think the media is tilts the perception of how divided we are. And, and, but they, they want us to believe everybody to believe that the, the, the right, the conservatives. That we are the enemy to those of the scholarly and those out there that want to more woke and look out for what they believe everybody's interest. And that's just not the case. They're looking out for their own power. You know, we love this country. This country is built on the ability to defend ourselves and our right to protect ourselves and that it's the right to bear arms. And so as I move forward with this podcast, those are the things that we're going to discuss. How do you know how important is the second amendment? And you know, I just look forward to the rest of this year. I, I appreciate it by listening to it. I ask you to subscribe, go out. Give it five stars on nine of the writing systems help promote it. I'm really not looking for listeners, but you know, let's get the word out if you like it. If you don't don't I'm going to keep doing this, you know, it's, it's an outlet for me and I appreciate it. So have a great week and I will talk to you maybe next week. I don't know what my schedule is going to be. I'm not going to put so much pressure on myself going forward. But a podcast out every week. I might go every two weeks, may skip a week here and there might go do two in a week. We'll see how things go, but just keep a lookout and they, hopefully, if you subscribe, they'll pop into your, your, your listening queue when they're out there. So have a great weekend. I will talk.
