I have been listening to Thom about 4 days a week on Sirius since 2010. I get that a big part of it is the host dissecting the other side, which he does brilliantly, but it hit me the other day what should be done more.
Yesterday, we heard from a woman who felt that, when voting, all Americans should present photo I.d. without complaint but buying over one thousand rounds of ammo online at a time was an inconvenience bridge too far and any law requiring a cut off at one thousand bullets per purchase in a unverifiable manner was a heinous, unconstitutional attack on her right to aspirate vaporized lead particles all day while "sport shooting".
I would have a victim of a gun crime waiting and listening on the other line and after the gun advocate is allowed to get her point across, I would throw it to the victim guest and in this last case, ask her if the online, unverified limitation of one thousand bullets at a time is a reasonable law.
I have never heard of this type of segment and it can be done in a fair and effective way where the gun guest doesn't have the right to be upset if the host is really good and Thom is the master.
I just want the gun guest to go home and think about how actually unreasonable their points are and I know if it is done correctly that isn't asking too much.
