    Thanks for pointing it out. That was awesome. I have to wonder what ABC fatcat finaly decided to do a decent bit on gun control.

    Hey Brady Bunch! :neener:

    That was without a doubt the best mainstream news piece on gun control I've ever seen. I'm very VERY pleased.

    Wasn't that refreshing:D I knew I liked John Stossel. He'll probably get fired for that.

    Most unusual... and interesting. In the past ABC has been as anti-gun as the other networks. Wonder what made them change?

    We are always very quick, as a community, to attack our enemies who would spread lies about us.

    Let's be just as quick to reward journalistic integrity. It was very risky for ABC to run that piece. We need to drown out the gun control nuts that are sure to complain.

    I just sent my approving email. Won't you join me?

    if it was the "ten myths" show, its actually an old one they rebroadcast

    I wonder if it did impact his career at all. Gotta love his willingness to take the journalistically unpopular position based on *gasp* facts

    John Stossel has always been a straight shooter. Which probably explains why you don't see him on TV very often.

    Bravo. I just caught part of that on tv. I figured someone else here had seen it. That was definately the best thing I have seen on tv about guns.

    Actually John Stossel was on the Factor with Bill O'Reilly a while back and Bill ask him about this story. Seems Stossel got in more than a little brown do-do for this but he does have a loyal following. John was able to go ahead with his story inspite of loud noises from above. Very brave, but he wasn't about to back down. A real good guy.

    I'd hazard a guess that ABC's running it as part of the Demo camouflage campaign for the 2006 election (we're not against guns -- you're stupid to think that we are).

    I didn't catch last nights showing, but it may have been a repeat of an earlier broadcast. If not, I'm very surprised he would be able to run it past the exec's two different times.

    from the text of the article linked to above:
    Still, kudos to ABC for airing it again. Just as valid today as it was in '04.

    Perhaps ABC is realizing that the anti-gun bigots are losing popularity and credibility with America as a whole. I think they are starting to see that being 'anti gun' as being on the losing side. The actions of the VPC in Florida passing out flyers at airports enhanced our cause greatly... American sheeple could only be fed BS so long before seeing through the poop they were being fed :D

    ABC runs pro-gun TV specials, San Francisco newspapers publish pro-gun articles... could this be the beginning of a tide turning? :)

    Interesting that it was "Myth #3" in 2004, but "Myth #5" in 2005.
