    That was pretty bad. The MSM should stop calling themselves journalists and start calling themselves what they really are. Left Wing Propagandist

    media makes it sound like all gun owners are guilty by association when a couple of yoyo's go off the wall. if there was chl holder in ny that guy would not have had to kill himself

    I saw the interview with Sawyer on Regis and Kelly this AM. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that sees this 20/20 episode as being a basket of mixed crap delivered to the public to taint law abiding folks.

    In the same breath, American gun owners and criminals lumped together a the "problem that every state has with guns". Everything they brought up was a problem with a gun, not a criminal or nut job that broke laws to have a gun to commit a crime with.

    I suppose we ought to start hammering our legislators to write a bill to bad expensive electronics in our homes. If they weren't in our home, criminal couldn't steal them. Crime solved.

    Cars too. How many deaths by vehicle would be eliminated if we banned cars? Think about it, the only way to keep a drunk from killing people from behind the wheel would be to ban cars. Problem solved, right?

    Of course they talked about how armed citizens can't really defend themselves anyway and would likely just shoot up innocent people along the way. After all, they showed the clip from security tape where a store clerk and armed robber fired 15 shots at each other at close range (in the store) and the bad guy didn't go down. I agree with them, the clerk shouldn't have had a gun. Then maybe only 1-2 shots would have been fired. At least the bad guy would have been saved from harm.

    What people like that want would be great, but it's a dream. If every gun could be eliminated, then yes, no one would get killed by guns. The problem is, they can't even keep guns out of criminals hands now. The laws are there but they only hinder law abiding folks.

    They just don't get that criminals are criminals because they do not obey laws; old ones or new ones. Law abiding citizens DO obey laws which is why we're not criminals, and why we're not the problem with "crime".

    Maybe if we didn't have bleeding hearts and enforcement and punishment for those crimes was a real deterrent, the problem might change.

    The lone sponsor for HR45 (Blair Holt registration and sale records act) is also the sponsor for a bill to make access to phone service easier, more affordable and more convenient for prison inmates. WTF?? Do we use Federal money money for SPA day in GenPop too? It's many of those inmates that are the cause of the problem he's trying to fix by registering every gun in the country and he wants to coddle them and make things nicer in Prison for them?

    This is the kind of thinking that's being pushed on America and the people they want to brainwash into thinking like the rest of the illogical nuts.

    no joke. They want to make it harder for us to get guns so that when Obama tries to make everyone else bow down to the terrorist's, we can't do anything about it. In short an unarmed public is not a threat to the commies that run our government, an armed public is a threat to the socialist government that they want.:hammerhead:

    I,m starting to see that black helicopter circling again so I'll shut up so they don't catch me. :happy0001:

    I also watched the Interview this morning on Regis and Kelly. I plan on watching this episode of 20/20 at 9pm. Even though I know this is going to paint an anti-gun picture for those who choose that point of view, it's good to keep up with the nonsense being spread.

    Its on...

    just saw the clip of the simulated classroom/office shootings and from what little I saw, I can imagine they gave blank guns to random people who have never touched a gun and had a guy come in out of the blue and start shooting. see who can draw on him and "survive". Not a good experiment. I'm sure the whole story is negative towards gun owners.

    we shall see...

    even worse its obvious the shooter knows who has the gun as they all shoot the "teacher" then go straight for the "armed citizen", what a crock
