Billy Johnson became a hero to many gun rights supporters by making YouTube videos in 2012-2013. Watch as he speaks his mind at SHOT 2015 in this interview.
I first heard of Billy Johnson after he started making YouTube videos about the gun control debate in the wake of the Newton School Shooting in 2012. He came off as intelligent, reasonable, and well spoken. As a result, some of his videos went viral and he ended up landing a position as a commentator with NRA News.
Check out this interview about background checks, basic human rights, and the gun control debate in general that Billy Johnson gave at the 2015 SHOT Show.
As always, education is the best defense against the hysteria gun control advocates try to drum up in the ongoing debate on gun control.
Reason trumps emotion. Unfortunately, there seems to be a lot more emotion than reason in politics (especially gun politics) these days.
Johnson is a great at what he does, and we need more people like him (and Suzanna Hupp) out there fighting on the front lines for gun rights.
