On this episode of the Resistance Library Podcast Sam invites gun rights advocate and journalist, David Codrea, to the show.

David Codrea is that rarest of creatures in the 21st century – a skilled and principled investigative journalist, willing to overturn stones to find the truth underneath. It was his strong journalistic chops that made him instrumental in breaking the story that the world knows as “Operation Fast and Furious,” a part of Project Gunrunner, an ATF policy of allowing illegal gun purchases to happen in a vain attempt to catch bigger fish that resulted in the death of a Border Patrol agent and countless others.

Sam had Mr. Codrea on The Resistance Library Podcast to talk about the importance of actual, principled journalism today, as well as how he broke the Fast and Furious Scandal to the broader world and the importance of digital security.

Thanks. No time to listen at this time but I’ll come back to it.

I read his stuff in Firearms News, (known as Shotgun News in a previous life)

He’s a clear thinker.

I did not know this

wth, did it drop the newspaper and go full color print?

I’m listening now, Infowars has the same fight, not considered legit as they’re not on a 6pm prime cable spot, why don’t you guys try to add comments other than facebook?

It still looks something like the old Shotgun News. Maybe a little more upscale. Very few ads today, they’re there, but not like the old days.

Heck of a guy, Mr. Codrea. Thanks for listening to Sam’s talk with him!

I think a non-Facebook comment section is an excellent idea. I’ll talk to our folks who know better about computers about that.
