Is this interview anywhere?

I should have clarified, Dave's interview with the documentarian mentioned above was as guest host on C2C.  I know C2C shows with George hosting eventually wind up on You Tube, so I assume programs with guest hosts do as well. Also there is apparently a C2C affiliate, I think in Canada, that offers C2C shows on their website for a few days after the original broadcast.  The website has been posted in the past, but I don't recall the station or it's website.

My favorite bit of idiocy was the guest's insistence one of the first officers on the scene could have stopped the killing spree, but did not engage the shooter from long range despite being outgunned/outranged by the vastly better armed shooter.  "A bullet is a bullet, a gun is a gun", he said, not understanding the difference between the officer's  .38 revolver and the Uzi carried by the killer. 
One of the callers gave the guy a pretty good reaming over that comment but then got all huffy and hung up before the guest's response

Yes that caller, who I think said he was combat veteran medic, tore the guest moron a new asshole. True to form, however, the guest did not understand the caller's rational, well delivered explanation and turned it around to say the caller was confirming the officer was incompetent because he could not hit the distant gunman with a .38 revolver because, after all, "a bullet is a bullet, a gun is a gun".  It was at that point the caller hung up in disgust.

You recall we had an awful mass shooting at a Luby's down here. It caused one of the victims (I will say victim even if she was not shot because she lost both her parents) had a gun in her purse but due to the laws (at the time) left it in her purse in the car. She, Suzanna Hup, ran for office on the issue and got our "concealed carry" law passed. She also had an AM radio show for a while.

I think the thinking of officers, and even normal citizens, is changing. We have to treat the crazy mass shooters or the Islamic terrorists differently than we've treated criminals in the past- where the motivation is economic, political, or in the commission of another crime. When the criminal is just hell-bent on killing people we cannot wait for SWAT, stall for tactics, negotiate etc and even though risk of collateral damage I think throwing lead towards them is the best solution, even if you only have a .38 because it might hit him but at least get his attention. During the UT Tower shooting civilians, including frat guys from their roof, shot back which distracted the shooter, a bit*. The guy is an idiot with a "gun is a gun" comment though.

* there has always been a rumor that civilian Allen Crum, not the police officer, was the one who actually killed Whitman but the police didn't want the publicity/complications and he didn't want to notoriety so they said the cop got him.

Yes, and realization of your point has led to the "active shooter" tactical approach to such situations.  Officers are now trained to run to the sound of gunfire to attack shooters, despite the inherent risks the officers assume in doing so.  I participated (as a "victim") in an active shooter exercise a few years back and came to the conclusion the security forces would aggressively go after a shooter to protect/rescue me, but would be roundly criticized if things went sideways as a result.  I would not want to be a cop.

Yeah. They get it from all sides and are always second-guessed. Even a routine speeding ticket can get you shot and the press, lawyers, and much of the public constantly criticize you or even protest against you. "Activists" harassing you and escalating situations. People taught that you are the enemy and "don't snitch." Government officials who often take the anti-police side in things and so many violent criminals allowed to enter the country.

Me too. I just looked at the listings.
But when I listened before to some shows with topic that was not in my 'field' that much -with a good host (and good guest of course)
there could be packets of interesting moments with cool or crazy info during the show... so who knows.. I will give a try

Dudes and Dudettes,...

You got to listen to "Susan Lindauer", an ex-CIA Asset...

I heard her on another show, from Jul 26, 2017...

Susan Lindauer joins us to discuss her investigation into missing trillions of dollars and everything leads back to the Hilary Clinton & her crime cartel.

Here is the link:   ...

Enjoy...
