    Like it or not, every firearm can trace its heritage to the fields of war. Every. Single. One. Some just have a closer relationship than others.

    Every firearm is designed to kill. Some people accept that fact, some people are appalled by it. But denying it puts a person squarely in the Fudd camp, saying foolish things like "They won't ever come after my deer rifle or duck gun.", and "Nobody needs an AR-15. Buy a shotgun... buy a shotgun.".

    But, the fact that the producers chose that particular quote to punctuate their program is a clear sign that they never intended this to be anything other than a political statement, an opportunity to continue the demonization of a scary looking tool.

    The scary thing is, they're getting pretty good at it. To the casual observer, this was probably viewed as a balanced investigative piece, even though it obviously had an anti-AR tilt.

    I didn't bother watching. CNBC only looks centrist next to it's socialist brother MSNBC. I knew it was going to be crap from the beginning. I'm not sure why so many are surprised.
