    I saw this this morning and was so incensed I quit watching after two minutes. Legal vendors are accosted for doing what's totally legal in their state. One man is even questioned for selling "a police grade pistol with (gasp) HOLLOW-POINT BULLETS! This "report" is rife with more political buzzwords and sympathy magnets than I've seen in a very long time. Anything we can or should do about it?

    Sure. If possible make a list of advertisers, and google up their web sites. Then express your feeling in a calm but firm manner.

    The program may or may not reflect the advertiser's view, but without exception they are paying out big bucks to sell a product or service, and they don't want themselves associated with a program that leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

    There is no faster way to get the media's attention then to hit them in the pocketbook. :evil:

    A letter to each of the advertisers telling them they disapprove of their support for the outright lies and misrepresentations of NBC and MSNBC is in order.

    Also, a less passionate letter picking the "facts" of the report apart directed at showing the incompetence of the "reporter" and the team that produced the piece is a good idea since this is their premier "investigative report" for this guy. No need to talk about the sanctity of the 2A, just focus on how many incorrect facts that are easily checked with the same internet search engines they used to find people interested in selling their firearms.

    Always a plea to the emotional, but not a single mention of second amendment?

    That woman could of just easily of been stabbed eleven times.

    Then there is this gem:

    Really? 5 miles? Then I guess 223 has 2.2m range.

    Anyways, I got to the whole part about the Glock 23 and then all of suddenly the dude just has Black Talons hes going to sell? How the hell did they find a guy who just has Black Talons around?

    Then the guy just acted all cool and basically fed the guy ways to make him and private gun sales look bad.

    Then the second guys response is I hate the government?

    Then the 3rd guy says it can take down a plane. Then isn't concerned about them being terrorists or dangerous felons.

    Seems to staged if you ask me. I haven't bought or sold a gun privately where names weren't taken down by both parties.

    Oh yeah and they called the Mini 14 in its regular stock, not a tactical one, a tactical assault rifle!
