    Nothing helps the pro-gun cause more than the support of an attractive woman. :)

    Yes, that's true.

    But the media buries this kind of stuff. It's an ingrained bias. Just as many reporters will say that they can't publish stories of defensive uses of guns because "it sends the wrong message," they are nearly as unlikely to go out of their way to publicize something like this.

    Yes, her story (a paragraph of it) was in a magazine. But when the media wants something known (to promote a liberal cause, book, movie, person), they print it in multiple magazines and have multiple appearances on the Today Show with perky Katie Couric throwing up softball questions to put her fave socialist in the best light. On the rare ocassion that Katie's producers schedule a conservative (I can't remember the last time I saw a libertarian there), the questions will be quite confrontational. The liberal will be labeled as a "moderate," if at all, while the conservative will have a banner under his name such as "Conservative," or "Rightwing author."

    Think how many times someone like Al Franken was next to Katie Couric pushing his latest book. Several (see www.mrc.org for more leftwing media bias).

    On the other hand, Ann Coulter, if she is lucky, will get one appearance. Laura Ingraham hasn't been on yet and hers is a best seller.

    The media (and I mean all of it), are in the business of propaganda and marketing. They have a viewpoint and they wish to sell it. From Disney selling Hillary Duff or Raven, to Good Morning America, Oprah, and Rosie giving the Million Mom Marcher tens of millions dollars worth of FREE advertising that a gun group could only dream of.

    Dang. I got up on my soapbox again. Please scroll up and look at the pretty pictures again. :D

    This is usually what you hear from Hollywood newbies who get some gun training for a gig. The power, the damage, the killing, etc...the titillating brush with the great taboo.

    I wonder how many of these people revert to anti-gun snobbery or just plain apathy after the cool-factor wears off from their paid vacation to GunSite or wherever.

    Anyway, when the "elite" (such as it is) gets a buzz from rubbing up against the gun culture, it's kitchy. When they develop a serious interest, it becomes lunatic fringe.

    Precisely the reason for Milla to not be any kind of progun spokesdarlin'.
    We who were raised with guns know they are only tools not capable of good or evil.
    These kinds of statements only fuel the anti's arguements.

    Maybe Charleton can teach her this.
    I hope so. I like the thought of her bein' on our side.

    I think this is a reason many anti's are "anti".

    People have a tendency to believe other people think the same way they do, and that all people with guns would behave the same as them, and it scares them.

    Well if you think about it she has a point. All the twirling high flying kicks and punches won't do anything for one or more people seven yards or more from you intent on doing you harm. If your assailants are armed you are really screwed. Quit being so apologetic just because you enjoy firearms.

    Nailed it, S-Bob.

    Some of the most violently anti-gun individuals I have met or seen on TV have something of a temper-control problem themselves.

    About the finger on the trigger issues.... that seems to be an entirely "elite" and American thing taught to firearms enthusiasts.

    I've regularly seen every other country with people's fingers right where they shouldn't be, but not touching the trigger. Maybe it's a regional thing?

    Its a practical thing.

    If your finger is inside the trigger guard, bad things can happen from a startle reflex or sympathetic movement of the index finger. Your finger is already curled, and if startled you can reflexively close your fist *BOOM*...or if you grasp something in a high-stress moment with your weak hand *BOOM*. If startled or under high-stress load you will not remember to take your finger outside of the trigger guard to avoid this. Furthermore, just doing it lazily when not under stress will cause you to unconsciously do it when you are under stress. You will do what you've trained yourself to do...which in this instance is an unsafe act.

    Boom. Oops.

    If your finger is just hanging out inside the trigger guard, its not safe. I don't care what your nationality is. ;)

    You will see our military doing it is as well.

    The thing is this: The military shoots people for a living. if they are pointing a weapon at you and they get "startled" and shoot you, its not a real big deal since your the enemy.

    Law enforcement however is often placed in the position where they have to "hold" a person using a weapon. or point a weapon at someone who they do NOT intend to shoot. Which is odd since that is techically a safety violation as well.

    I suppose I might be able to imagine this as just a method-acting thing. The finger in the trigger shows the audience that the actor is ready-willing-and-able to committ mayhem (as opposed to being untrained). :D

    With all our MOUT police actions, that ain't so. Innocent civilians have to be taken into account.

    From 2002, hopefully she's since rectified the situation:
    :D Should I call her and tell her about the DOJ may-issue for MG permits in CA? :D :D :D

    Sorry, I can't see this as any more than her high of the week. The point of gun rights isn't to kick ass, to do "serious damage." It's not about fun. It is about empowering the individual for self-defense and resistance to tyranny. That means the Second Amendment starts in the mind, from a place of reason and responsibility. The firearms are just tools, the outward expression. This has everything to do with good citizenship, nothing to do with "cool" or excitement or venting one's spleen.

    How true.

    IMHO this is the reason you never see Sarah Brady on televised debate shows any more - the NRA wised up and started sending women to debate her. That way she couldn't play the "poor, almost-widowed woman victim of gun violence" schtick any more.

    IIRC, Affleck is on record as supporting the Second Amendment.

    My wife looks like her, and likes guns too. You just can't beat a tall redhead with a gun in her hand. ;)
