I have been getting emails and messages on different social media sites all week in regards to the comments Pat McNamara made on a Comedy Central segment. Most have been threatening comments about never doing business again or not following us because Mac is a spokesperson for the NeoMag.
Here is the video from CC after a commercial that has zero connection with its customer base. Skip to the 3:20 mark if you want to get right to the point.
Overall I think that went as good as it’s going to go coming from Comedy Central, a very liberal channel and TV show. But you may have caught the comments and responses from Mac about wait periods and Universal Background checks. That’s what people are breaking out the pitchforks, lighting torches and shouting from the roof tops over.
When I first saw this I furrowed my brow and scratched my head because I know Mac and this didn’t make sense. When I trained with Mac every comment he made was counter to what was shown on this show. Mac is a spokesman for the NRA! Yea, the very organization that fights for our second amendment rights.
My very next thoughts after watching this video were “I bet Comedy Central, a very liberal station, and this show whose very subject is anti-gun, edited the crap out of this.” So I did the level headed and measured thing and held judgement. Then instead of marching into every gun forum and facebook page making empty threats (like many decided to do) I decided to call him and hear him out.
When I talked to Mac I had a very calm and collected guy on the line. I could actually hear is eyes rolled into the back of his head over this whole thing. He gave me a short explanation and said he had a couple interviews the next day. One with Primary & Secondary live YouTube show. And another with the NRA. With that I said I would watch and listen to those for the full run down and wished him luck. He thanked me for the phone call and that was that.
Here is the P&S interview.
So we now have Macs actual, unedited, raw response to these questions. I have had people say they won’t believe it because it sounds like he’s backtracking. To that I say this:
