So much has changed since Lloyd and Pastor Bennett reviewed the various government responses to COVID-19 back in episodes 212 and 213, we thought it would be a good idea to go back and re-assess based on new information and to see how those policies have changed and what harm or good they have done.

Listen to parts one and two of this discussion in episodes 212 and 213!

Reformation Gun Club members can hear both episodes 212 and 213 together in one show as well as an extended version of episode 217!

Apr 12, 2020

Lloyd discusses the parallels between the gun control movement and the national response to COVID-19 and the ways that numbers are manipulated to obscure the truth, and how the desire for security at all costs drives responses to both gun violence and the pandemic. At the same time it's Easter Sunday. As we huddle together in our lockdowns across the country, like the early disciples following Christ's death, let's remember this most holy of days and the promise of life everlasting that Jesus secured for us in his victory over death and the devil.
