Coming Up On "Cam and Company"


January 4, 2007, 05:28 PM
Hey all, just thought I'd start a thread here to let everyone know about some of the upcoming guests on and Sirius Patriot 144 for the "Cam and Company" broadcast.

For those who haven't listened before, this is a three hour daily talk show focusing on the political fight for our 2nd amendment freedoms. It airs from 9-midnight Eastern at the above website and Sirius Satellite Radio Channel.

Tonight's show (January 4th, 2007) will feature Illinois State Rifle Association Executive Director Richard Pearson on Mayor Daley's latest call for more anti-gun laws in Illinois; the head of the New York State Rifle and Pistol Assciation, Tom King, on the chances of more anti-gun legislation in New York; Jordan Austin with NRA-ILA on Shall Issue RTC in Nebraska, and Utah State Rep. Carl Wimmer on the University of Utah continuing to fight for anti-gun policies on college campuses.

In addition, we've got our features like "The Deal of the Day", armed citizen stories... and a big announcement to boot. Hope you can tune in!

Nice, thanks for posting

I just let the guys in the Illinois hometown forum at ARFCOM know. Thanks for the heads up.

January 4, 2007, 06:54 PM
Welcome to the board Cam! Good to have you here. Looking forward to the show!

January 4, 2007, 07:13 PM
This is outstanding, a national NRA talk show host right here on THR. Love the show and listen every day.

Perhaps this should be a sticky in the Legal & Political forum? Moderators? In another thread Cam indicated he was going to update this thread daily with what was on the show that night.

Thanks for the info Cam.

January 4, 2007, 07:16 PM
Yo, Cam!

Welcome aboard.

Do feel free to pull up a chair and become a regular here.

January 4, 2007, 07:39 PM
It's been an excellent show Cam. I usually end up listening to it the next day at work. A couple times I've been able to watch it live online and even posted in the talkbacks. Keep up the great work.


January 4, 2007, 07:52 PM
Thanks all!

And Gwa.45, do you still get down to Alexandria at all? If so let me know the next time you're coming down.

Cam, great to have you here! I listen to your show as often as possible. Some of the "Man on the Street" segments leave me speechless. I can tell that the guy who does those has to bite his tongue sometimes to keep from arguing when someone says something ridiculous. Keep up the good work!

January 5, 2007, 10:39 AM
Cam my friend, welcome to the forum!:neener:

You just never know who you're going to cross paths with!:p

January 5, 2007, 01:55 PM
Thank goodness for Cam & Company or my workday would seem twice as long. I love listening live, but try and save the shows for when I'm chained to my cubicle. :)

Thanks for posting Cam! And for all the great work you folks do!

January 5, 2007, 02:27 PM
I like that you can still hear the show later on if you go to the internet site.
I have listened a few times, great show and welcome to THR!

So what was the big announcement? I missed the show,very busy right now.

I guess I'll have to see if you have archives

Cam is a member here now? Cool!

I'll have to listen to the Internet recording--didn't know there was one until "gunsmith" mentioned it just now. But since my company's web filter blocks out almost all NRA sites (but not the Brady's site, interestingly), I'll have to wait until I get home.

January 5, 2007, 03:10 PM
Ah, the big announcement.

Next Thursday and Friday (January 11th and 12th) Cam and Company (and all of will be broadcasting live from the 2007 SHOT Show in Orlando! :D

There was someone in an earlier thread who mentioned that the show is usually more political oriented, rather than product oriented. Well, I can assure you that there'll be more products featured on the show next week than you can count on both hands, feet, and any other appendage.

And, for those of you trapped at work... a special LIVE broadcast time of 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. Eastern on We'll also be replaying the show at the normal 9 p.m. timeslot on and Sirius Patriot 144.

This is one of those times where I'd encourage everyone to check out the broadcast on the web, since the streaming video will add a lot to the experience.

Cam Edwards, Chris Muir and Massad Ayoob all on the same forum. I am in awe. :D

January 5, 2007, 05:38 PM
On tonight's (Friday, January 5th) Cam and Co.

Jim Dark from the Texas State Rifle Association on the upcoming legislative session (Castle Doctrine and the "parking lot" bill)

Todd Rathner from the NRA Board of Directors on a great armed citizen story from Tuscon

David Martosko from the Center for Consumer Freedom on the govenor of Colorado calling PETA a bunch of "losers". (For you animal lovers, the backstory on this is a must-hear).

NRA-ILA's Brian Judy on the call for more anti-gun legislation in WA State

And a pro-gun college professor from Massachusetts (no, I'm not kidding.)

January 5, 2007, 05:44 PM
Nice to see you here Cam!

I can't listen live anymore, since you guys went big time. :-) I work nights but I listen to the replays.

I am listening to last nights right now.

And a pro-gun college professor from Massachusetts (no, I'm not kidding.) He must feel way outnumbered!

January 8, 2007, 05:23 PM
Ah, who cares about Ohio State/Florida tonight? We've got Jim Wallace from the Gun Owners Action League in Massachusetts on the latest call for gun control by Boston Mayor Tom Menino, lobbyist Greg Costa on the start of the NY State legislative session (watch out for more gun control bills), and Marti Oakley, a columnist for the St. Cloud Times that wrote a column about IANSA, Rebecca Peters, and the global gun ban movement.

Then of course there's the Deal of the Day, some other regular guests and features, talkbacks, phone calls, and more.

Cam, are you talking about this column ( If so, that's a great piece.

January 8, 2007, 07:57 PM
Cam, next time you get Richard Pearson from ISRA on the show you need to press him about going on the offensive.

We are always playing defense here and need ISRA and the NRA to fund a public relations offensive.

January 9, 2007, 11:07 AM
That's the one, Pistolero. She's a firecracker.

And GoRon, I know that ISRA is hoping to file a right-to-carry bill in IL this session, so they're not afraid to go on the offensive in the state.

January 9, 2007, 02:16 PM
Cam, I have your site bookmarked. You have presented some really good information. Thanks
Oh, and welcome aboard :D

January 9, 2007, 06:54 PM
On tonight's "Cam & Co.":

- Chuck Cunningham, NRA's Director of Federal Affairs on the number of pro and anti-gun bills that have already been filed in Congress. (Yep, there ARE anti-gun bills that have been filed, including one by Senator Schumer).

- Dave Hardy from "Of Arms and The Law" (and the guy behind the new documentary "In Search of the 2nd Amendment")

- efforts to change Las Vegas, NV's "pistol registration" requirements

and a whole lot more! Hope you can tune in!

January 11, 2007, 09:26 AM
Sorry for the lack of a post yesterday... we were going crazy trying to get down to Orlando.

But we're here now and set up, and we have a special live broadcast of "Cam & Co." coming up at NOON Eastern today. We'll also be replaying the show at its normal time of 9 p.m. Eastern. Both feeds will be available online at, but the NOON broadcast will not be on Sirius. You can still catch it on Sirius at 9 p.m. tonight.

The live show is noon-3 p.m. Eastern on (note the special time), with a replay at 9 p.m. on and Sirius Patriot 144.

BTW, we had technical problems getting the show to Sirius yesterday, but they have been fixed, and yesterday's show will be played on Saturday from 9-midnight.

January 12, 2007, 09:59 AM
Cam, thanks for having Clint Lake on from Buckeye Firearms yesterday, live from the SHOT Show. Clint and I instruct CCW classes together! Several of us BFA leaders were watching at the time and loved it when you said "everywhere we go, Buckeye Firearms is there!!":D We try!

January 15, 2007, 06:54 PM
My pleasure Linda!

On Cam and Co. tonight, the latest from Pennsylvania, Indiana, Missouri, and Washington State, as well as a look at Browning's new offerings on display at the SHOT Show.

Sorry for the late posting, but we've been scrambling with a couple of last minute guests.

On the show tonight, a must hear: Steven Halbrook, attorney with the NRA, on the motion just filed in New Orleans to hold Mayor Ray Nagin in contempt of court.

Also, we'll continue our look back at the SHOT show, talk to Kenny Jones (sponsor of the Castle Doctrine in MO), and take a look at some legal questions during the Civil Rights Roundup (our weekly segment with the folks from the NRA Civil Rights Defense Fund).

Hi Cam!

marti Oakley here. I just logged onto this site and wanted to let you know that I will be writing an additional article for the St Cloud Times following up on the 2006 UN event.

I also publish my own small paper which is reflective of many political perspectives. As I told you during our brief chat, I am a flaming liberal by standards. I consider myself an American first and protecting our Constitution and Bill of Rights is foremost in my writing. I will be listing links to the NRA and to Gunowners in my private publication.

My subscribers list is around 3000 right now, and growing. I would like to have your permission to list your show in my paper and Program scheduling. If this is possible, please email me.

For the record.....your comment that we would probably only agree on about 5 % of the political issues was not accurate. I judge each issue and law based on its affect on our rights and liberties, and if that falls into right or left camps I really don't care.

I did a head count of a large Sportsman club here in my area....said to be a conservative stronghold....and found that of 440 members of this, 372 consider themselves Democrats. As I told you, I am a flaming liberal by standards. i consider myself a flaming constitutionalist. There are politicians on both sides who have worked to repeal the 2nd. There are radicals on both sides. I don't like the labeling thing.....none of us are all one or the other, none of us can be that precisely defined.

I would sincerely like to include your scheduling broadcast in my publication.
Could i send you our next issue which is due out about the 3rd? That way you can look it over and see what we are about.

I hope I didn't scare you off with my interview. I had just come from a huge sportsman's club meeting where some woman was whining about not wanting to be shot. So who would she know that does???

Midway I launched! She claimed she couldn't hear what I was that was any real I jumped up on a chair and yelled....CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW??

One thing I would ask of you. Please! Please stop trying to define this as a right/left or conservative/liberal issue. I have found just as many pieces of legislation sponsored or co-sponsored by Republicans, and then of course are the provisions in the Patriot Acts 1 & 2, and section 1042 of the John Warner Defense Authorization Act which allows the president to declare an emergency at his "discretion", even if no one else thinks there is one......and then conscript our local law enforcement and Guards and use them against us for protesting, dissenting, or otherwise becoming an "undesirable". First order of business should this occur, is the immediate confiscation of guns even if this has to be accomplished by house to house searches.

The Patriot Acts and Warner Act are both Republican authored.

Now to this Peters woman.........I went to the NRA website to see if there was a DVD of the forum from last summer that you spoke of. I didn't find that but did find the text summary. The NRA and other groups that were there fending off this attack should be commended for standing their ground.

I have one wish before I get to old to do it.......I want to debate this obnoxious woman! There was not one argument that she posed on behalf of banning guns in the US that I could not have immediately taken apart.

Someday!....................Marti Oakley

January 23, 2007, 07:01 PM

No. you didn't scare me off. Heck, by most people's standards 90% of my family would be "flaming liberals". I'm used to it. Plus, you're great on my #1 issue. :)

Sorry for the lack of show updates, by the way. I've had to do some traveling, but I'm back in the mix now.

On tonight's (1/23) show, you'll see and hear from some of the anti-gun mayors in DC, as well as get the other side from Larry Keane with the National Shooting Sports Foundation.

We'll have a live update from the trial of two PETA employees charged with felony cruelty to animals in North Carolina, and a couple of armed citizen stories that are not to be missed.

Tomorrow's show is going to be a "Best of the SHOT Show" feature, and then beginning Thursday we'll be broadcasting live from SCI in Reno! There'll be a special live broadcast time on from 3-6 p.m. Eastern, but we'll be replaying the show at its normal time of 9 p.m. Eastern online and on Sirius Satellite Radio as well.

January 23, 2007, 07:51 PM
Love the show when I amble to listen to it, sucks that they move the time slot. I know you can “replay the previous nights show” from a computer but I would like to see a small archive of shows in MP3 format so that I can listen on my ipod while I’m up and moving around at work. I know that Sirius makes a unit that records/buffers shows to replay later however given the choice of $300 for that or $300 for a new pistol, ammo, reloading supply’s I would prefer to use the current device. Can you blame me, the safe is hungry!!! Any chance of the shows in MP3 format?

Honestly, I'm hopeful that it will happen sometime in 2007, but the decision to do that is above my pay grade. :)

On the show tonight, the latest legislation in Texas, Massachusetts, and Kansas. An update on Armed Pilots, and a talk with a North Dakota State Representative about one of Mayor Bloomberg's cohorts. Plus the Deal of the Day, more from SCI, and a few surprises.
