In their defense we must not forget, the sad and unsettling realization that the Boston Marathon Bombers were not the Redneck Tea Party members they'd hoped for. This sad realization threw the entire MSNBS viewership into an angry funk. I mean, seriously, who'd ever thought that members of the religion of peace could ever do something like this.
Rest assured, however, the MSNBS viewers will move forward like the troopers we know they are, put their foil hats back on, head back down into mommie's basement to their computers, and eventually find their way to blaming the average American for the bombing.

Whew!!!

Thank goodness my PWS MK114 is a modern sporting rifle and not an assault weapon.

I watched this show and rather enjoyed it. The part about there being 4 million ARS in the public domain and a possible 800,000 new ones in a year! Even the name "Americas' Rifle"... Hell, yea. And the bit about more women and girls choosing the AR, warmed my mean old heart. If anyone watched it who didn't have a made up mind to start with it might send them to the gun shop. Of course my mini 14s aren't talking to me now.

Their choosing James Yeager of Tactical Response as the figurehead for comtemporary training is illustrative of the bias of the show.

I guess Clint Smith was busy, or too intelligent to waste his time bothering with trying to prove anything to the CNBC crowd.

At least they had the right firearm homicide statistic. They said around 8500 a year. I can't believe they actually took out SD shootings and suicides. First time I ever saw the anti gun libratards use a real number when talking about gun deaths, they usually say 30,000.

I liked that chick with the purple Glock and the matching purple AR. Too bad they didn't show the Hello Kitty AR, my little sister has been begging for one going on two years!

I watched it, and now I'm in the market. Local shop had a M&P15 556/223 for $699. Someone snatched it up though.

Well....that wasnt so bad. Definitely left leaning. But they did mention that less than 4% of gun crimes were committed with rifles, and did mostly try to get both sides of the story.
