Mark Zuckerberg says people are drawn to Facebook Live because 'it's so unfiltered and personal.' And that's how these pro-gun brothers have converted so many disaffected NRA members: by using Facebook exactly as designed. Just not for friendship.
In Episode 2, hear how the Dorr brothers have used Facebook Live to grow their fanbase and convert disaffected NRA members over to their side. It has to do with social media savvy, expensive suits, red flag laws, and making their fans feel seen and heard in a way the NRA simply can't.
, the Dorrs have used Facebook's free platform to build a strong personal connection with their followers.Carolyn Ricker of Newnan, Ga. says watching the videos on the Georgia Gun Owners' Facebook page feels like being a part of a virtual community. She lost trust in the NRA in 2018 when it whispered its
willingness to compromise on gun control in the form of red flag laws, which allow temporary removal of guns from people thought to pose a threat.When she asked the organization to take a harder stance, she says she was ignored, but the NRA did keep asking for her money. On the other hand, the head of her local no-compromise group, a growing movement that rejects any regulation of firearms and includes the Dorr brothers, regularly rails against red flag laws. And she likes that he answers her phone calls.
Her gratitude is echoed by two fans of the Dorr group in Missouri: John and Carla Burke. They recently moved from Illinois — a state with relatively tight restrictions on firearms — in part because they were looking for a state with lax gun laws.At their home near the Lake of The Ozarks, the couple feels free to shoot guns off their back porch without worrying about complaints from the neighbors. And while they rarely watch television, videos posted by Aaron Dorr for the Missouri no-compromise group, Missouri Firearms Coalition, are appointment viewing.
The growth of the Dorr brothers' audience on Facebook is relatively new. Over the years, the Dorrs have refined their techniques. Facebook and other social media platforms offer immediate feedback through view counts, likes and shares. This means content creators can iterate rapidly — if a particular post or video performs poorly, the brothers move on until they find something that works.

It’s so interesting hearing their side. It’s full of hypocrisy. When there’s a shooting and the “liberal left” start having petitions they claim a petition won’t do anything yet here they are trying to do the same and feeding false hopes to their base. NoCompromise NPR: opinion news organization Facebook is neither unfilrered nor personal. They've literally been busted performing psychological experiments on their users by manipulating their newsfeeds. Everything you see there has been curated.
Defund Mark Zuckerberg, Trump's biggest enabler ... I get the feeling the subtext of this article is: 'people you don't agree with use FB in ways you don't like'. FWIW, people I don't agree with run in ways I don't like. At least your tax $$ aren't funding those guys. markzucky You better start to fix this BS propaganda, Facebook was designed for exactly what ?
How is it not friendship? It’s a bunch of gun toting citizens getting together and talking about how much they love guns lol now that’s friendship Never will I ever, never have I ever..................👿 Facebook is trash Like anything else, free speech has both an upside and a downside. Any attempts to limit free speech will have far more disastrous consequences than simply allowing free speech. Anyone even vaguely with history should already know this.
Why anyone is still using Facebook full well knowing it’s Fox’s first cousin is beyond me. There are a ton of other, better apps to stay in contact with people. Leave it for all the Q ppl and move on already! DeleteFacebook 'Zuckerberg' with an 'F'

Stimulus deal: Washington continues to stall on pandemic relief as leaders reject bipartisan planLeaders in both parties are batting down the opportunity to trounce the impasse, refusing to return to the negotiating table and use a bipartisan proposal as the starting point for compromise. The carrot 🥕 on a stick. Millionaire democrats and republicans holding up help for 40 million and their families who have lost jobs due to the incompetence of a Frump, ugh. Thank you for writing this informative, fair article that notes how far too many powerful politicians prefer doing nothing to compromising & helping unemployed Americans. The problem-solvers focus on alleviating economic misery, but Congressional leaders pander to donors. Cruel!
