I watched the show live the other day, and feel like Aaron had some valid points. The media does hit at truths, and lies, but is in no regard the enemy.

Plus it did not help my opinion with the way Shawn kept trying to end the segment with backhanded slights as if he (Shawn) were being impartial but in actualality, he (Shawn) was kind of being a dick. No offense Shawn I mean you out of this group I respect you the most, I mean behind Jeremy, and then Aaron, and Nick (lol, JK), and 9 times out of 10 you hit the nail on the head, but this time you missed swinging, like an ex who felt like she needed to get one last dig in…

Now in regards to Jeremy v. Aaron echo chamber, I agree with Jeremy. There are just so many places people can consume media, so the idea that people usually stay at their own lane with blinders on is idiotic, however, that being said, for him to say The right consumes more of the lefts info is just dumb. Honestly, there are more left sources for media so yes he is correct, but it is not because the right is more balanced to news and open to ideas, they just have fewer sources.

I also Feel like yeah people who just wanted to be spoon-fed their opinions are dumb, so Aaron is right there and I appreciate all of you saying you get your news from more than once source, that I feel makes your judgments more sound (except the registration/confiscation, -1 point for you Aaron)

So if we were keeping score it would go like this Shawn 0, Aaron (2 but -1 for confiscation) = 1, Jeremy 1, Savage -100 but Nick I love you 3000

Dear WLS crew.

Sorry about the butchered message I sent previously. I guess that’s what happens when you try to type and answer endless dumb questions. Shawn I am sorry you got upset, I didn’t realize your ego was so fragile. I will resend my comment and say you are kinda funny. So I have two questions, first my carry gun in a sig p277 carry and was wondering if the appendix holsters at black rhino concealment would easily hide the thick grips? Second, I am currently looking for recommendations on where to move , not giving up just yet but I am entertaining the idea. I am an elevator mechanic so I kinda need big buildings to have a job. Thanks guys.

Hey fellas, I’m gathering parts for an AR build chambered in .300 blackout and it’s time to make a decision on a barrel. I have narrowed it down to the Faxon 7.5″ with 1/8 twist or a Roscoe 8.2″ with 1/7 twist. I’m primarily going to shoot suppressed and would like to hear your opinion on twist rate and length rather than our mutual love of Faxon parts. If you guys have a favorite adjustable gas block I’d like to hear about that too. Great show, thanks.

Bolt action pistols are useful in areas where hunting with center fire rifles are restricted. Here in western NY we have areas that are too heavily populated for rifles. Therefore they are shotgun and pistol only. Rifle cartridge pistols are a happy medium. So Aaron now that you see the safety use case does your opinion change?

Timmy Boogaloo 

If you could only choose one rifle to prepare for the boogaloo, what would it be? You don’t know what the boogaloo is going to be. One rifle to prepare for them all (climate change, invasion, political, red dawn, revolution, zombies, etc.) One rifle to fight, hunt, pillage, steal, and survive with. If you feel you must have a pistol too, you have the 9mm of your choice. I thought I wanted a Scar and have been saving up for it. But now POF has the gen 4 revolution in 308 and I’m thinking I might want that instead. Get ready boys it’s coming.

NYS FreedomFighter 

Thank for responding to my question in episode 115. I listened to your answers a few times but I am not clear on what you think is the optimal barrel length for a 22 lr in a AR platform. Optimal in terms of accuracy out to 50 yards and keeping it short and light. Thanks again and keep up the great show.

The second amendment does not apply to Aaron…Change my mind

Aaron is over the age of 45 and his diabetes disqualifies him as sound of body.

Second amendment: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Militia: The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.
