    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.

    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.

    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.

    Though, the other articles/videos noted on that web page seem to cover a spread of related areas:

    • AR-15s Flying Off Shelves Amid Gun Control Fears
    • Law Student Gets Around Gun Control With 3-D Printing
    • Aurora Shooting Victim Reunites with ER Team
    • The Rise in Popularity of the AR-15 Among Women
    • Hog Hunting With the AR-15
    • I Am a Typical AR-15 Owner
    • How the AR-15 Works (by Brian Schuetz, president of Olympic Arms)


    Who knows? Perhaps it'll be more balanced than we're assuming it'll be.

    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.

    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.
