Wow great find there hso. This is the most rational RKBA discussion I've seen. It helps that the host's demeanor was calm and neutral.

Their politics are usually pretty nearly opposite mine, but there is one thing I have always liked about PBS "anchors," whether on radio or TV; they don't scream at their audience.
This interviewer and guest are a shining example of how a dialog should be undertaken. The guest is dead on in her analysis, and the host doesn't berate her. Brilliant work from both.

The words " examined the gun debate." Just before Judy Woodruf, are, in fact a link to the video.

That was a surprisingly level headed discussion considering the program.
Thanks for the link.

TheHighRoad exists to provide a higher grade of discussion than is found on some other gun forums so antis and undecideds can see that gun owners and RKBA advocates are not the reckless misanthropes they tell everyone we are. Personal attacks, group stereotyping, macho chest-thumping, and partisan hackery are low road and hurt all of us.

I know this is old news, but since it hasn't been mentioned I think I should point it out:
I believe this recounting of the NRA's history is inaccurate as told in this video.
I'd really, sincerely appreciate someone correcting me on this. My understanding is that the NRA was started earlier than the instances cited, specifically by two union soldiers upset at the lack of Northern aptitude at reconciling POA & POI.
It's true that some local chapters were organized for the reason he states and that the national organization chartered those local organizations, but the NRA as a national organization wasn't started for these reasons, AFAIK.
The NRA can and should rightly take credit for their involvement in helping freed slaves defend themselves from the KKK, but it's important to qualify this video up front with an acknowledgement that the history isn't quite accurate. Being honest and upfront about this avoids putting us in the position of losing credibility for promoting something that isn't historically accurate and thus distracting from the truly valuable substance of what's discussed.
Again, I'd really like it if someone more knowledgeable on this would correct me. Don't hate - just posting this in the spirit of helping improve our strength of representation and argument.

It's not the NRA making that statement, but those individuals.
It may be a case of them talking about the NRA from their particular perspective and context (local chapters, being chartered by the national organization) and not simply being concerned about when the 'national organization' actually formed.
Either way, that's a powerful statement, and since it flies in the face of the MSM, and reinforces the NRA as a positive organization, it'll never make 'prime time'. But I hope more people see it.

theshepard, I've been doing a lot of research on this lately. Here's something I came across that may or may not be of value to the conversation. It concerns the rifle club that was created by civil rights activist Robert Franklin Williams and chartered by the NRA.

More reading on this subject:
Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.

The reason for high capacity magazines is simple:
They are the tools we use to level the field against tyranny in this Nation.
The progression by the left is simple:
High cap>15 round>10 round>7 round>wheelguns only>38 caliber and smaller only>single shot>no shot
