So yesterday I was listening to lars larson on KXL in Portland, and he was discussing chipotles recent announcement and referred to open carriers as nitwits, now lars is normally pro-gun, so I decided to call in and discuss it with him today.

Once today's episode comes out on podcast, which should be today or tommorow I will post the audio

The local 570 hosts like to pretend they are "moderate." Carlson always goes on about how he doesn't mind expanded background checks, though I'm not sure if he specifically supports 594 or not.

Most of Washington is moderate, Although I don't consider Lars Larson to be a moderate. I consider myself to be such.....

I am a moderate is a cop out used by weak people to justify their inability to form an original opinion.
Wait... to NOT pick a preformed side/ set of ideals means its a lack of ability to form an original opinion? Lol

Did I read that right?

I posted a link, may 22 2014 at 28 minutes exact, northwest show, not the May 22 national show.

Podcast will be on iTunes shortly as well. I think lars thinks too "rationally" sometimes, a lot of people think OC is a bunch of people "forcing their rights" as lars said, and don't see it as a positive exercise.

Sounds like Lars is just another guy who'd rather CC as a personal preference and only cares about himself. He actually says that OC as a political statement is wrong.

I guess he fails to realize that CC is a trap to get people used to never seeing guns, and that OC bans always precede CC bans. OC is a buffer that helps keep CC, and gun ownership in general, legal.

I thought it was interesting how he attempted to deflect by bringing up breastfeeding...... I don't understand how it is that breastfeeding can be considered offensive, so the example meant little to me, I'm glad he steered it back onto topic because I wasn't ready to start debating breastfeeding on Portland radio.

Some prudes just can't stand people engaging in activities they feel uncomfortable with, be it breastfeeding, public displays of affection or an openly carried gun. He was using a red herring to deflect as you detected.

Believe it or not, I would like you opinion on if I made good arguments and sounded confident. It takes me awhile to work up the willingness to argue with a talk show host on air. So some feedback would be appreciated if it's not much trouble for you.

I just had a listen and I think you did alright. It's hard to make a really good point and drive it home on a show like that, where the host has full lines and is trying to push calls through and switches topics quickly.
8/10 from the Iowa judges. :D
