Pretty neat. I'll have to track down at least the 12ga. and 45ACP.

Enjoyed Lara and her message. As to the stupid comments, it will take a long time to repair the damage done in the past by the Democrats. They have said many just as insulting in the past about hunters and gun owners. I'm happy for the national exposure again, that's why I have rejoined as a dues paying member.

Kudos Lara! Shame the interview wasn't in a quieter area.

Where do the get that this is the 75th anniversary of WWII? Next year 2019 will be the 80th anniversary of the start of WWII. This year will be the Centennial year of the end of WWI. The 30/06 and 45ACP would have been used in both wars.

If we have the blogbot repost, it also would repost everything to FB again- which is a problem. FB is much more integrated for posting stuff quickly than a blog would be. That said, lemme talk to her and see what we can do.

Blogbot broke in the upgrade. It's also on Twitter FYI.

BTW, one of the biggest problems I had managing campaign content was getting Twitter, Facebook and my URL to work together seemlessly. Of course, that was years ago.

"...should not be a partisan issue. It's become an identity politics issue."

Come on--we have to have "shooting stuff is fun" out there as a logo or a trademark or something.

"I'm not voting for you" if you don't make sense about every single civil right.

The Corona is a nice touch.

Lara is a great spokespod.

If it helps, they never stopped. They are doing equivalent damage right now.

And they continue to do so.

The comments associated with the video are worth ignoring.

Laura was good, the production left a lot to be desired.

Those aren't the microphones to use in that situation. A better selection would have helped in not picking up so much background noise. Levels should have been set better and the host could use some practice in using his mike. Sound was the big problem here.

Then the camera framing was poor. Too much headroom. No reason the yellow blob of signage should have been in the shot, tilt down :( .

Lighting adequate, could have been better. It can be difficult to get right so it's last on the list. They both were lit too bright and Laura, being lighter skinned, should have had even less light on her than the host. In the end it was better to error on the side of too bright rather than too dark.

Hey, I understand the "production crew" was probably just the host and he had a very limited budget, but it certainly looked like it.

in the end it was good Laura got our message out and the average viewer probably only noticed the sound problems.

Body mics can really save a budget production. I interviewed a few hundred folks and after the first couple of days, I dropped my expensive hand held mic and replaced it with a fairly cheap lapel mic. Much better at eliminating background noise.

Of course, we would miss the Doobies with body mikes.
