Killin' It on Twitter

Last week I was informed that "Whoever is running the twitter page is killin it, pun not intended". Well, that person was me. While I usually let my friendly Social Media Mammal handle those sorts of things, in the aftermath of hero Eli Dicken stopping the murderer at Greenwood Park Mall I felt it necessary to take the reins for a bit in order to make some good points -- and, of course, get in some shots at Shannon Watts, who posted this tweet... and then deleted it, likely on the advice of her lawyers. 

The deleted tweet.

 

I don't know why she thought deleting it would do any good. The internet is forever, after all. 


She could have issued a retraction and apologized, of course, but that would be admitting she was wrong, and she won't do that. So now she and/or Moms Demand Action will likely be sued by Eli Dicken's lawyer, Guy Relford, for defamation.
 


Anyway, I went on a bit of a tear after that.  

If you'd like a Thread Reader version of this conversation, I have you covered.


I finished up with this. Not only is it 100% true, but it's a great thing to throw in the faces of those who say "You only carry a gun because you want to be able to legally murder people."

So that was me on Twitter earlier in the month. I had fun, made some good points and got in some good shots.

My Interview with The Independent

Arrgh! I have been struggling with multiple Impossible Tasks for Eris-knows-how-long and I'm sick of it, so instead of worrying about doing it properly I'm just going to crap out this blog post so that it's DONE and I can cross if off my list and I won't feel guilty/lazy/incompetent anymore for not doing it. 

So yeah, back in June I was approached by Io Dodds of The Independent, a UK-based magazine, who wanted to write an article about the growth of gun ownership among queer people for Pride Month. 

We had a long, in-depth interview that went very well. What's more, unlike a lot of interviews I'd had where I'm lucky to have two sentences attributed to me, this article quotes me for paragraphs

Also, look at that title. How can you not love that title?



I encourage you all to read the whole thing

Assorted Calibers Podcast Ep 208: Send in the Experts!

                      

In This Episode

Given the historic events of last week, we* have brought in professionals this week to expertly analyze and reflect upon what those events mean for us and for our nation.

  • In separate interviews, Benjamin Blatt, Esq. and Clayton Cramer discuss the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act which was recently signed into law.
  • Mr. Blatt then returns to discuss the implications of the NYSRPA v. Bruen Supreme Court decision.

*This was Erin's idea, and Erin is NEVER wrong! (Erin says: Weer'd wrote that. I would never say it. But neither am I going to delete it...)
