Default ABC's 20/20 on guns

I don't know how many of you had the missfortune of watching 20/20's stupid propaganda on guns but if you didn't, don't. It was such a discusting bunch of miss-information I wanted to puke. Of course they had to push the "bad" gun show stuff but then they gave a guy $5000 to go buy them guns. Um, isn't that illegal? Something about "straw purchase"? Well, the first gun they purchased was from a guy in the parking lot. Um, not from a gun show !!!! Then the stats, what a bunch of crap. They said something like 60,000 children will get killed by guns this year. Um, thats 164 a day. Sorry, I think we would be hearing about 164 kids a day being killed by guns. If you get a chance go to the 20/20 web site and check out the blogs. 99% of them are telling ABC to stick it! Email them a bad letter while your there. Sorry, I am so wound up by the thing I had to vent some steam (too dark right now to go shoot somehting).

The child death rate my be a world-wide stat? Take into account the genocide of many nations and it seems more plausible.

Yes I watched 20/20 when a friend of mine called and told me what a piece fo crap it was. So, I turned it on and watched so I could gather "ammo" that I could use against them. (of course now I kind of want to ban myself) Dang it...I hate it when that happens!!

It is a real shame that you can not find a balance view on the TV anymore on pretty much ANY topic.

I do not understand why someone like FOX news does not do a 1 hour special on guns in America. They MAYBE are the only ones that would fairly present both sides of the issue.

It IS a debate that should be going on. We have certain rights as American citizens. However, the Heller decision stated that "reasonable" laws can be enacted. Well, what is "reasonable" to Nancy Pelosi is not going to be "reasonable" to you and me! The political system is going to have to wade thru all this, and ABC news clearly trying to ramrod their distorted views onto America is, personally, disgusting.

Everyone needs to point out the straw purchase fact. I am sorry but someone needs to report them to the ATF. I may just do that.


I urge everyone here to start an email campign to the ATF to bring the mighty liberals to justice.

ATF was in the parking lot with the purchaser and reporter. They said everything was legal, then the guns were turned in to the police.

This was a monumental piece of crap, with the exception of the classroom shooting drills.

Experienced shooters are apparently people who go to the local range. None had a concept of cover, movement, or target acquisition. They knew how to fire a gun, and that's it.

I'm not knocking the test subjects. I think this clearly shows a need for a chain of nationwide defensive shooting academys. I think affordable and convenient training should be available to everyone, and I think it should be worked into the porkulous package.

I made a point to watch this show, just to see what kind of twist they would put on guns and gun ownership. In the opening section they made a statement that they were NOT going to try to sway any ones opinion, just provide fact. Well that opening lie was a whopper! This was the most anti-gun show I have ever seen. Besides constantly bring up all the shootings of late, they showed their total ignorance of weapons by showing children finding guns and pointing them at their own heads and their playmates. This is the most dangerous type of journalism we allow in our country. No warnings to parents that they are going to show scenes that SHOULD NOT BE VIEWED by children, as we all know they tend to mock behavior they see on TV.

Many of the sections with teenagers and small children handing handguns made me sick to my stomach and yell at the TV from my chair. Stupid teenage boys looking down the barrel of a revolver to see if it was loaded! Maybe it was suppose to be a representation of future Darwin Award winners. Perhaps we need to have gun education in our schools, I'm not saying shooting them, but a general education about them.

They claimed that they showed a NRA cartoon film on gun safety to the little kids (4-7 years old I guess) and then set them up to find guns in there toy boxes. Well guess what, yeah they picked them up and aimed them at each other. 20/20 used this to show how ineffective the film was.

This was really sad and totally anti gun all the way.....
