Advocate or activist?

posted Nov 2, 2018, 9:27 PM by Gizzard Gary

Prior to today, my description on most of my social media accounts listed me as a "Second Amendment advocate".  Lately, I have heard lots of discussion regarding the difference between being an advocate and an activist.  An "advocate" is in favor of the Second Amendment, but does not necessarily take any action in that regard; an "activist" actively promotes the Second Amendment - by creating discussion videos, commenting on news articles, attending rallies, writing their representatives, etc.

I have decided that I need to be an activist.  The Second Amendment is in danger.  Political candidates, the mass media, etc. are all actively trying to chip away at our gun rights.  Several states have passed restrictions regarding what guns you can own, how many you can buy, even going so far as to require a background check to purchase ammo!  We can either sit and lament about our bad fortune, or we can speak up, take action, and do whatever it takes to right these wrongs!  Maybe one person can't fight the fight alone, but we need to get in the fight.

To quote NightStryke - "Shall not be infringed!"  He takes a lot of heat for this tag line, but he's not wrong.

Can you believe it?  I know I can't.  In a few short months, I have 298 subscribers to my YouTube channel as of this writing.  I humbly thank each and every one of you that have joined me on this video journey.  I will announce a giveaway of some sort on my channel, as soon as I figure out what it might be.

What is "common-sense Second Amendment advocacy?

posted May 26, 2018, 3:09 PM by Gizzard Gary

Simply put, "common-sense Second Amendment advocacy" is to advocate for gun rights and laws that enable Americans to exercise their right to keep and bear arms as the forefathers intended.  That means that all Americans, with the exception of those who are obviously a danger to society, should be able to purchase and carry the firearm of their choice, in all 50 states.  I do respect states' rights, but I believe that nationwide concealed carry is necessary to ensure the safety and freedom of all Americans.  Unnecessary laws, fees, waiting periods, etc. restrict people from being able to defend themselves.  At the same time, I also believe that we have to keep firearms out of the hands of people who might do harm, but with the possibility for rehabilitation and restoration of gun rights once a sentence has been served.

Taurus Spectrum Unboxing

This is the pistol that I bought yesterday at the Emporia Kansas Gun Show.  I've been waiting for the Taurus Spectrum ever since it was introduced in SHOT Show 2017, and this is the first one I had seen in person.

Emporia Kansas Gun Show

Scenes from the Emporia Kansas Gun Show, Anderson Building, Lyon County Fairgrounds, January 27, 2018.  I found about this gun show (which is in the college town near where my daughter lives) a couple of weeks ago.  Since I'm in Emporia every Saturday, this was a no-brainer.  Also, it's the weekend before my birthday (and you'll see I picked myself out a little present while I was there...but more on that later).

A special thanks to my daughter Sara for providing the clips with me in them (which she was filming without my knowledge).  It made the video much more personal.

My channel has reached the 100 subscriber plateau as of 1/13/2018. That gives me the ability to have a custom URL ( This will make it much easier to publicize the channel, etc. Thanks to all of my Patrons for being a part of this milestone!

The Gizzard Gary page is up and running.  Actually, it has been live a day or two, but I just finished a major overhaul.  Gone is the boring white background and black text.  Also, I replaced the boring links on the main page with the social media web site icons, and added the firing range picture at the bottom.

Also, I created an account on Vimeo last night and uploaded some videos.  I added a Vimeo link to the main page.  Since is no longer here, I wanted a second place to host my videos, and I know the Vimeo is fairly established.  There is some gun-related content there, I hope to see more.
