    Life is too short, stop to smell the roses and don't let anyone take it away from you!

    "News are created when something goes wrong."
    Walter Cronkite (I think)
    The first rule of a gunfight: "Don't be there !"
    The second rule: "Bring enough gun"

    I agree wih what you guys are saying, however, I'm not sure that I would want to be in front of the cameras using my real name. Some knucklehead would want to track me down just to prove he can get me. They would have to get an actor. I'm not usualy paranoid.

    Seeing the other side of things is something very few people are ready for in my opinion. While we might like to see those stories portrayed in the local or national news, others would only twist things, criticize, and chastise. Deep down inside most of the sheep, heroes and good guys are only in the movies and on TV. Real people just don't do things like that. As always, my opinion.

    Another Factor That Works

    against this premise is lack of blood. Many legitinate self-defense situations don't involve the weapon being fired. The fact of the weapon visible in the hand of someone obviously prepared to use it stops many criminals. Not enough drama here for "Hollyweird"!

    AZ Border Territory,
    A 30 minute show, maybe sponsered by Midway, on the outdoor channel or a part of an existing show IE: a segment on the NRA show, or any other shooting show on the Outdoor channel

    If the election goes the wrong way, one of the first casualties will be CCW reciprocity, then all CCW, then private ownership, then the 2nd Amendment. Learn to speak French.
