3:07 pm
a lot of that time it was a pivotal event to establish saif goggles for astride the national are obvious agreement covers everything from the style of our alums the ownership the responsible use and all arounds. and it's a very very fond document that will strike in some crowd and it keeps us safe. but we want a public. that is really the nuts and bolts because we've tried everything this. one nation is excited about traveling to the u.s. and what a meeting with the n.r.a. might deliver. a pretty good thing not what i want to get through you're right.
3:08 pm
right three million dollars us when he said question about statesmanship you might be a good model michael we are going to go you need on your leg a decision today. dixon asks for guidance on how best to deal with the american gun lobby. it's better that we not you know we've been getting on it. just because that's not the reason we got. the i don't want to try to stop some really good is right up and up people are good i'm getting that with. i asked roger to hopes that you'll the n.r.a. is indorsement of pulling henson. we need to want to them this is about cold cases that are trying to getting if we get stronger they can actually work and we grew up with you know out of spite in the why did you know it's not because a lot of wind the investment you know it's such a shuttle mission i'm going to go into too much difference maybe. it's the left

wing anti gunners who literally point to australia using the mainstream media as this shining model as to why we need gun bans and gun confiscation. the n.r.a. is so troubled by his trail use strict firearms laws that it's targeted the issue in videos like this. suggesting that a stranger's national firearms agreement is a failure and must be scrapped america we have and americans will not stand for a government any government trampling our rights. dixon says that by funding a social media campaign the n.r.a. could promote one nation without handing over any cash. we can get a million dollars fine us or woodstock. i don't even need the money i just need one if we get one that's rush just for you. i don't need to touch the. that
3:10 pm
way the n.r.a. would promote one nation's social media content while providing cover for their financial contributions just gives them the odd hunch it will give them the. middle name and i mean if. this is going to dixon believes that as a veteran politician he knows how to make deals like that happen. i'm very. experienced and the portraits of him. on the. i'm not. really. ready would. say oh. it's that and then we got to go. see it in the know it. in all of history there's always been a time at a place when patriots stand up and rise up against the decree of the elites
3:11 pm
and shout no more. and the n.r.a. convention in twenty sixteen brought you witnessed the power of the gun lobby's messaging and influence in u.s. politics. i'm officially announcing the honorees indorsement of donald trump for president was odd. my sons have been members of the n.r.a. for many many years and they're incredible they have so many rifles and so many guns sometimes even i get a little bit concerned is that that's a lot. to would be president will go in an hour a script america's second amendment the right to view as citizens to carry a gun is under threat. and he will make sure nobody ever takes anybody's guns away
3:12 pm
. i will not let you down remember that i will not let ya. honorees messaging to the gun community increasingly has been built on fear government going to take away your guns they often use the united nations as a demon as they have demonized brock obama and hillary clinton and bill clinton before them and using fear to gin up support fund raising new members and guns. hillary clinton wants to abolish the second amendment just remember that we're not talking about changes she wants to abolish the second amendment show we're not going to let that happen i can tell you that right now. from the inside roger learns the n.r.a. has playbook for influencing public opinion. but i i.
3:13 pm
i'm in the states a bit so maybe you should be right and we got a fight so i thought i got lost me. one nation landed in washington d.c. rojo was there to meet them oh i got. it to say it's a yes he had set up meetings for dixon and ashby using his tongue will be contacts . yet if used dixon's first visit to the united states. the thing that will fix fear the big apple is that is the washington monument.

3:16 pm
a central. thought on. my own times i'm not. gonna block. the one nation visitors till potential donors to their party that they want to change jungles back. the people them in their country it's really yours but it's wrong because. dixon discusses the strenuous firearms laws with congressman ted bud here we are back to the much profit on the population or to gun obligation if you are in the middle of it every time he gives congressman a warning the banning of automatic weapons in a stretch is the beginning of a trend that threatens to take hold in the u.s.

3:28 pm
hurdle i would get from fabs it's a look at australia. there continually attacking us that's never ending. or we want to kill al. platt we've got trucks that people are going to go over those try to go dark then you go. they have to go to a politically correct problem and it is it's one portion or you know it will or the hole was reached. and to help storm that kicks in and asks for brandy graham's assistance with all the meetings in washington. people who might be aware of her have seen one symbol in for a while. it will seem good in stopping this impatience but if you can course norgrove so people can you talk to it we like to think we like money we do our people on the ground. graham offers to connect one nation to energy giant

3:33 pm

3:34 pm
of those the sons of god so if you think this is something that we support it's a big business of some sort of policy though and we. of course our reaction is the same as any other birth marriage we're completely outraged that the only back and by war right. now that's the sort of stuff we're all guys you know them by right it was either get all of by the very very or entirely manner of truck. and that's the white neighborhoods across the globe. if something happens here not as bad as we have gone but it's like. when you try to look at it with children that were murdered without nashiri we're having not buddy who's in trouble another we don't know our wall of the compound what. would happen you know or
3:35 pm

3:37 pm
school house how much more will be necessary to. come thank you when i'm going out to talk to the families of these loved ones that have been killed and you know sometimes. i'll sit there and i just stare at them in the waiting room. knowing that what i'm about to do is going to completely change their life i'm about to. tell them that their loved one is never coming back. and i will tell you looking at. faces of those mothers sisters you know brothers fathers those faces are often chiseled into my memory. what was frustrating is that hollywood in the bankruptcy just dumped all this money in the one nation visitors who had the and now raise take on the student protests
3:38 pm
following the public in the high school shooting. brandy graham said the survivors have become the puppets of anti gun educate his. basic classes and they're organizing in time what to say what to do when they do interviews and who they are so with all orchestrated by these anti-gun were yes it was not. and so does politicians supported by the n.r.a. that allowed the continued slaughter of our children in our future i say get your resumes ready. the n.r.a. publicly mulct students who just witnessed the killing of their classmates. this kid ought to be marching against an hypocritical police structures they hate machines their constant except hold on no you never going to take the course. you want to attack a teenager who went to a school shooting that's who's your enemy now is a school shooting survivor
3:39 pm
a kid who doesn't want to die. but that it is but that it we hear the first gunshot echoed through the hallways. our first response was not sounded a lot like a gunshot or that very day that did it and now they're getting or it's time to get on the side not this is going to be a mess to you for us it's like all this is that these people are going to walk away from this in like i was for me or. not mine and it wasn't actually ever the shooting to. take back that media that. however they decided that. so right now. it's not true. but david was at the shooting he recorded a video on his phone as the killings were taking place.
3:40 pm
on. the claims videos like that a broadcast to boost and to attack citizens' rights. wasted one second to exploited tragedy for political gain. many in legacy media love mass. you guys the london. crime white mothers. care not one whit about america's school system and. if they truly cared what they would do is they would protect their goal is to eliminate the second amendment and our firearms freedoms so they can eradicate all individual freedoms. they've had
3:41 pm
enough. they've had enough and they're going to tell you to your face wayne la pierre you're peddling. painful look in the mirror and ask yourself if it's truthful because oftentimes truth is the most painful. so. we. are. with pressure mounting for gun reform how does the n.r.a. maintain the support of so many members of congress. it really will ban the last act if you don't you are doing caroline's role is to mobilize the in a raise five million members to support pro-gun politicians we're big organization
3:42 pm
we're very good politically been doing it a long time to regain we actually need to appreciate everything we had to replace and if you don't lawmaker up with a program maker we do we have to realize there is cheap a program mommy group plays. i remember when i was at the national rifle association i went in to see a couple of the senators and i remember very distinctly playing real hardball with them i handed the senate two letters and one letter essentially says dear fellow n.r.a. member when we came to see your senator he was walkin crn about what the new york times had to say then what you believe and. the other letter said the opposite dear fellow n.r.a. member when we came to meet with your senator he was far more concerned about your interests and your rights and what the editorial board of the new york times had to
3:43 pm
say now that's hardball that's how you play the game. we have to make sure that we're fighting in the presidential front senate struck out from you guess we just can't afford to take a step backwards. we concentrate on a lot of the words that strategically look you have most impact. is to try to realistically strategically decide are there some politician who can be corrected in. one nation is james ashby knows how a stranger would react. even if a loon to the pound he was asking for american gun money he gets if i'm. wrong about. this it does from my head every single minute of every dime. so his meetings in washington were to be kept secret also he sort.
3:44 pm
of mentioned old in north america but i think it might actually sink one night she as a political force in astride a. majority is trying population still very very strong for. for trying to one pick that with an argument that says i want a third party lobby group in another political jurisdiction to dictate terms to you mike's licensed this would be the last thing you try to pick through the back. and i don't care have you off i'm sorry but i find it really may only be a great day to be asked to have this view out well they're out of a movie about. yet right.
3:45 pm
in the next episode of how to sell a massacre one nation lands a meeting with energy giant coat industries. good god it can do for. you to get rid of. the n.r.a. gives one nation more political advice you want to put messaging out there so if you go out race in a mad easy that your stance and a warning from ashby to roger to keep their communications secret procure a treat i want for themselves over your drawing. boards truck price for a few seconds or.
