Rush was a speaker at one of the NRA conventions, where he was gifted a muzzle loading Kentucky style rifle. His show was based in New York at the time, and he did a monologue about how it was virtually impossible for him to keep the primitive gun in New York. As if New Yorkers were in some sort of grave danger from radio talk show hosts, armed with flint locks, rampaging in the city.
He was on the air for 30+ years, with leftists literally employed by organizations trying to find a “gotcha” moment in every broadcast, and succeeded in making liberal ideas look as dumb as they always are, while making any thinking person laugh out loud. He used to say liberals are the show, they just don’t get it, and he was 100% correct.
