Ok, this is a new film and of course it is about gun violence and at the end the reporter says "and your nickname is M5, and that is an assault rifle, how does that promote pacificim?" Oh GOODNESS, SHUT UP ABOUT THE "EVIL GUNS" AND DO SOME RESEARCH! KIDS JUST DONT GET GUNS NOT EVEN IN NEW YORK!!



And as far as I know, there is no "M5" assault rifle.

Hope they have SBR stamps :D


That producer could NOT sit still, was he on something? Seems like he didnt want his movie to be anti-gun but just show what these kids went though.
The reporter would have none of that, and kept using his movie to push her anti-gun questions.

I think she was just trying to get the guy to give a cogent answer. :scrutiny:

If we complained every time a news reporter either used the wrong name for a gun, or made anti gun statements, this whole forum would be filled with it. There wouldn't be room for actual gun discussion!

"Reporters" On several occasions I have been employed at businesses that came under the scrutiny of the local media and "reporters" and film crews would be sent to our building to try to get someone to interview. Our standard procedure - slam the door in their face. No matter what you say be assured it will be edited and twisted until you look like the bad guy. Trust me. Journalists used to report the news. Now they have to create it.

Borrowing a little from the movie Twister...

Joey: No, that was a good size weapon. What was it, an M3?
Bill: Solid M2.
Melissa: See, now you have lost me again.
Bill: It's the military nomenclature. It labels a weapon system by how much it eats.
Melissa: Eats?
Bill: Destroys.
Laurence: That one we encountered back there was a strong M2, possibly an M3.
Beltzer: Maybe we'll see some M4's.
Haynes: That would be sweet!
Bill: M4 is good. An M4 will tear up your house very efficently.
Melissa: Is there an M5?
[Everyone goes dead silent - silverware clanks on the table]
Melissa: What would that be like?
Jason 'Preacher' Rowe: The Machine Gun of God.
Melissa: None of you has ever seen an M5?
Bill: ...Just one of us.

This line of thinking shows definite promise.

Um, yeah, if they show up (as in you didn't invite them) don't expect a good story, and even then, it's all in how it's edited, and remember the reporter may cut the story only to have the news producers to cut it a different way.

Tyeo your right there is no such thing as a real gun called the M5, there's a M4. And the reporter should have done research that there is no M5 rifle.

Quick someone post the reporters guide to gun identification

Well, Steven Seagal did call the MP5 an assault rifle in Under Siege. Maybe that's where she got it from?

I've known plenty of people in my life who hear wrong, and plenty who analyze wrong. Put them both together and you got a reporter.

It was kind of funny that the movie preview right before the showed the interview was about Prohibition.

^^ HA!! ^^ I especially love the car and the Red Ryder as "AK-47's"

About the video though, I don't think either one of them was too sharp...she was on the anti-gun anti-realistic depiction of violence wavelength, and the producer seemed as though he hadn't thought about how people would be questioning his film. Knowing that it would be offensive to some people, he should have had his defense thought out before he even made it.

We actually have 3 of those Nerf Vulcan Belt-Fed machine guns...6 belts of 50, or I can stitch them together into longer bets. Can core out the limiters in the belts and nearly double the range. Some folks bump the rate of fire up (though this is very damaging to the motor)

Truly one of the non-lethal super-weapons of our day.

The first two were Mommy and Daddy's "Equalizers"... then one of their grandparents thought that the Elder at least deserved a fighting chance and leveled the playing field.

Hahahaha the photos above made me laugh for a good minute or two. That was so funny, very realistic. I remember the media once calling an AR-15 an AK-47 and a Ruger 10/22 a "high powered sniper rifle" once.. they are all IDIOTS!

You would first have to define "cogent" for him.
