Gun Blog Variety Podcast #146 - The Jesus Number

Three contributors are on assignment this week. You'd think that would make for a short podcast, right? Not to worry, Erin fills the time with an Epic Rant.
  • Beth, Barron, and Tiffany are all on assignment this week.
  • A shooting somehow *leads to* violence on I-40. Sean helps you figure out how that's possible.
  • It’s getting hot out there. Miguel uses his vast personal knowledge of heat injuries to tell you how to avoid suffering in the summer heat.
  • In the Main Topic, Erin talks about Christianity, Pacifism, and "The Jesus Number".
  • Last week was so much fun, and the Demanding Mommies' protest at the NRAAM was so long, that Weer'd gives us Week Two of his Protest Audio Fisk.
  • And our plug of the week is Anova Culinary Bluetooth Sous Vide Precision Cooker. Yes, Sean is plugging cooking equipment. But in his defense, A) John Doughty recommended it to him, and B) Sean's wife really likes it.

Event Preparation for Leaders

I don’t really have much to say on this topic, since I’ve been scrambling to find a new venue for the Free Community Seminar, but I’ve certainly learned a few things from what happened to me and I’ll implement these the next time I try to run something:

One: Thoroughly investigate ANY venue where Operation Blazing Sword plans to hold an event, to determine if they might find our politics objectionable.

Two: EXPLICITLY STATE that we are both pro-gun and pro-LGBTQ to the venue owners, because we can’t trust them to figure it out on their own in a timely fashion, or to keep their word if they find us objectionable.

Three: Do not advertise the event unless points One and Two have been checked off.

Four: Don’t have the venue be the sole point of contact for people making reservations. I don’t know how many people have tried to reserve a spot after FCCWP decided not to host, but I rather expect they won’t refer those people to me, but will instead say “We aren’t hosting the event” and hang up.

Five: Consider having our corporate lawyer draw up a quick contract, so that if the venue backs out on little to no notice, there is a penalty. I don’t know how well this will work, as suing a church rarely ends well, but just having a written penalty clause might reduce the chances of broken promises.

Six: Always, always, ALWAYS have a backup venue ready to go on short notice. I’m scrambling right now because, to be honest, I don’t trust churches any more; any LGBTQ-friendly church is likely to be politically anti-gun. At this point I’m going to find a secular venue.

And that’s all I have for this week. If it’s any consolation, I wrote about three pages of notes for the Main Topic.
