Podcast: The State of the Gun-Rights Movement (Ft. The Dispatch’s Kevin Williamson)

This week, we’re doing a guest swap.

I was on The Dispatch Live with Kevin Williamson a few days ago. So, he graciously agreed to join me on The Weekly Reload Podcast. We covered some ground on where the gun-rights movement stands today on his show, but there was a lot left to get at.

Will Trump turn away from gun-rights activists like he did with pro-lifers? What does it say about that movement that it’s so reliant on Trump and the Republican party writ large? Why aren’t we seeing more of a political effect from all those new pandemic-era gun owners? Will we ever?

Similarly, we picked up where we left off on the Washington Post’s Pulitzer prize for its AR-15 expose publishing graphic images of mass shooting crime scenes. Williamson argued the piece was littered with factual errors and, worse, it was intentionally misleading in what images it didn’t publish.

You can listen to the show on your favorite podcasting app or by clicking here. Video of the episode is available on our YouTube Channel. An auto-generated transcript is here. Reload Members get access on Sunday, as always. Everyone else can listen on Monday.

Contributing writer Jake Fogleman and I also discuss The Reload‘s exclusive reporting on NRA President Charles Cotton’s private jet travel on the news update. We also talk about Hunter Biden’s federal gun charges being upheld by a federal appeals court. Plus, we cover the failure of an “assault weapon” ban in Colorado, a bill going after Glock handguns in New York, and the latest in a Texas congressional primary soaked in gun politics. Audio is here. Video is here.
