You must have given it a sedative or something. Because we all know that guns WANT to commit violence. Or, maybe the gun forgot to call his partner in crime, Mr. Ammunition.

We KNOW what happens when those two get together...…..actually nothing, they just sit there together.

Funny, there was also a box of 25 12g shells laying right next to it. Lazy gun.

I would guess that I too am lucky. Owning numerous weapons for years, they are generally left unsupervised, and yet not a one have misbehaved.

Quick reminder, this load of crap will be broadcast in a few minutes . . .

I have the DVR set for this and the Chris Coumo discussion afterwards.

Whoo-Boy!

How was it? Did you watch your recording yet? I'm looking forward to your synopsis.

I watched it straight through, plans were to watch again later on DVR with the pause button and writing down specific rebuttals, but honestly I don't think that will be necessary. I don't see anyone actually trying to defend or advance any of the goofiness presented last night. There's a reason why there is zero chatter anywhere about the presentation.

To me, it was much bluster and buffoonery without anything to show for it. No actual policy proposals were made, it was a tearful retrospective of what had been achieved in the past but otherwise, it just devolved into being a hit piece intended to give anti-gunners a warm feeling inside. It was definitely geared to inflame the emotions of superficial people who have very little knowledge of the issue and especially the underlying history and law.

There was very little knowledge of the gun rights argument demonstrated, it was a string of caricatures of what anti-gunner's feel gun rights supporters are and what they believe.

In essence and effect, it was just a two hour long exercise in stuffing straw men . . . and then everyone congratulated themselves and left to sip lattes.

The Chris Cuomo discussion afterwards was laughable.

Thank you, I'm sure the media will give the show some kind of award in the near future.
