    Accurate Media?!?!?!

    I found this video on OCDO, which is another forum that I am a member of. It is a news report covering an open carry picnic. The media (mainstream nonetheless!) actually produced an accurate and truthful story about guns! I never thought it would happen, but this is a great video, and surely worth the watch! This is NOT a thread for debating open carry, this is a thread for discussing media coverage of gun rights! PLEASE do NOT beat the poor dead horse. There are other threads here for that topic on this forum. Thanks!!!

    Overall the video was positive but....

    /Rant On/

    I'm really getting sick of the words Wild Wild West being used for every news story concerning anyone carrying or being aloowed to own a firearm.

    I'm also sick of all these journalists writing their opinions in every rag in the country stating that there will be blood in the streets because of the Heller verdict. So many of these articles talk about more people "carrying" weapons and more guns "on the street". THE VERDICT ADDRESSED GUN OWNERSHIP IN THE HOME. Its as if none of these people even read the majority opinion. The words I have for these folks I can't say here.....Grrrr

    /Rant Off/

    I guess the fact people are talking about this at all is a good thing, maybe it will draw some light to our side.

    I share your sentiment regarding the "wild wild west" BS. I am just GLAD that they didn't really dwell on that here. It seemed to be a good overall story, ESPECIALLY for being main-stream media. If you notice, he emphasized that the holsters were secure, "not once did anybody unholster their weapon, not even to display it when asked about it. These people don't leave anything to chance when it comes to safety". Normally a news anchor wouldn't be caught dead within a mile of "people with guns", much less accurately and truthfully covering them.

    Saw this when it first aired. Couldn't believe it either. If the extent of the anti message is a throwaway line, quickly rejected, about the Wild Wild West... I'll take that any day.

    That would be a very accurate guess...which leads me to one of three conclusions. Either A) You have seen it before, B) you are a member of OCDO, or C)You were there. Which is it> Fess up.....

    I did not see this vid before. The media was fair in their story...did not put on a negative spin...amazing!
    Did they do a follow up after the SCOTUS ruling?

    I thought it was actually very positive. Made gun owners NOT to be maniacal nuts just looking for a gun fight. I must say though, there was this undertone of incredulity like "I can't believe there are still people who believe this nonsense".

    I must say, this is a first, surprisingly positive. Like everyone else here, did not like the WWW twist but still overall ok.
