ill dvr it. But being CNBC they will try to twist the fact and make it look bad just like they did to Remington particularly Remington 700 series of rifles.

Hour-long expose on CNBC tonight.
America's Gun: The Rise of the AR-15
Any chance this won't be smear campaign. Nah, that would be setting expectations way too high.

I'll pass. They sure will turn that into a plate of spaghetti.

I'm DVRing as well, I'll take a look when there is NOTHING else to watch, I don't expect to spend more than 10 minutes before my BS limit is reached.
By the way, nice of them to rip off the name of the book about Glock. I'm willing to bet that the writer of that piece of "non-fiction" was involved with this, he's a major anti. The book was interesting to read purely for the entertainment value of how screwed up the Glock family is though.

Who knows? Perhaps it'll be more balanced than we're assuming it'll be.
CNBC = waste of time only news channel worse is MSNBC
Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything.
I watched it. It wasn't as bad as I expected but just listening to how things were positioned and narrated at the beginning you could tell that it wasn't going to be flattering. Could have been worse and good for the uneducated public, but people here wont likely get much out of it.
I watched it. It wasn't as much of a hatchet job as I thought it would be.
Don't believe what you hear and only half of what you see!
Did they use the model that has disposable mags that cant be reloaded????
You dont have to believe a train is coming. Itll run over you anyway.

I liked the purple colored one the one chick was shooting
I watched it. It was kind of goofy, but I do think they really tried to present political viewpoints points from both sides. They couldn't help but try to make us gun guys look like crazy people, and they kept going back to the mass shootings. They spent too much time with living survivors of mass shootings. The show gave some history of the original Armalite rifles which was OK. They did spend some time explaining the difference between semi-auto and full-auto, which is something a lot of non-gun people seem to be having some trouble grasping. The show did honestly present one fact: It made plain that rifles (of all kinds) are present in only about 4% of all gun related homicides. I was a bit surprised that the show producers were willing to present that fact. The show ended up being just about what I expected it would be. It won't change any minds.
But they didn't go on to clarify that AR-15's are only responsible for about 1% of all gun crimes- slightly under 1% actually. It would have been nice to have seen them mention that. That and the fact that mass shootings of all kinds have remained at a steady rate of occurance the last 30 years and are by no means trending up.
These inconvenient facts always seem to escape being mentioned by the media.
