Short, 9 minute video below.

You might see someone familiar.

I think they explored both sides fairly.

Explored both sides fairly?!?!?

I think not.

"A teen or child is shot almost every hour."

The seemed to forget to mention that the VAST majority of those "children" shot every hour are actually gang members. I was going to count the instances of pro gun & anti gun references, but it didn't take long to see that this piece is HIGHLY anti gun. I mean they use every trick including dragging out the distraught mom of a kid who was killed to drive home their position that kids should be kept away from guns at all costs. They also go out of their way to make sure we know that the NRA is THROWING MONEY at these organizations to enlist kids in their evil plot.

I was just waiting for them to draw an analogy to the history of cigarette marketing.

On a lighter note...

Dewd, your famous (@4:45)!!! Either that or Rufio made it into the segment somehow even though I am certain that I saw Hook dispatch him.

At least it is legal there, in Iowa it is not.

I have to agree with Greenberg on this.

2 quotes from this segment alone made me cringe "Training and Trust may not be enough to prevent accidents" and Kids & Guns simply don't mix". There were many other b.s. lines in this report that made me cringe as well. But I don't have the time to sit and quote them all.

All 3 of our kids were taught from an extremely early age what guns can do. They each even got their own Cricket Rifles for their 8th birthdays. Cricket have been used by the scouts for many generations and they pretty much demonized them in this report.

It is our responsibility as parents to teach and practice what we preach when it comes to gun safety and the appropriate age for each individual child is to be decided by responsible parents.

And if you saw how wicked of a shot our 12 year old daughter is with her rifle I would trust her with my life over everyone with the exception of Jay.

Training is key, education in how it works and safety is very important.

I would love to know where they got their statistics from because they are way off base. And of coarse that was intentional to scare the uneducated and close-minded viewer that guns are evil.

I spoke to Greenberg; he does have a point that it is left leaning.

haha Jay already pointed out Niki a long time ago, so you might have competition...

She is the head of the Sureshots; they have chapters in many cities. They also publish the Sureshots Ladies shooting magazine;

Jay has a wife who MAY know how to use a knife.... Admire from a distance, Jay.

Redheads?!! Always daffy about redheads.
