Gun Rights Dominates Social Media

posted Apr 1, 2019, 7:18 AM by Cody B   [ updated Apr 29, 2019, 8:34 PM ]

In the race to gain fans on social media, pro-gun-rights groups are dominating anti-gun-rights groups.

In fact, any one of the larger gun owner groups already outnumbers all opposing groups' totals.

I guess we'll never know why the news media doesn't cover this more?

* Updated occasionally.

Give the pro-gun groups a like, if you haven't already.

If you know of any other groups I should consider adding, pro- or anti-, please email me armedcatholics at gmail dot com.

Debating Gun Safety

Gun safety can show up in the most unexpected places!
 
I was listening to a debate between Jordan Peterson, a Psychologist and Sam Harris, a Neuroscientist, and they started talking about Universal Rule #1. The first clip is about 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Very interesting perspective.

16:54 - 19:34
 
The second clip is just under a minute, and is another view on the social transmission of Rule #1, as explained by the moderator, Brett Weinstein, an Evolutionary Psychologist.

1:46:48 - 1:47:38

Many Catholics, including myself, are surprised to learn that the pedigree of the Second Amendment came down to us from a Catholic family tree. Explore the links below to learn the origins and growth of the right of armed self-defense.

The Catholic Second Amendment, 29 Hamline Law Review 519 (2006).

Good take on Bearing Arms from a Catholic perspective, including a mention of G.K. Chesterton who carried a pistol.
