    I like at the end where she emphasized the AR-15 is not full automatic.

    She called it an "assault rifle" and I had to correct her on that and explain that the weapon that he used was just like a semi auto rifle that just doesn't look like a military type. She didn't know that it wasn't full auto and I couldn't emphizize that too much and stated that the press is spreading the wrong information about the weapon so I'm sure she made sure that lady knew that.

    I need an 80k dollar Corvette that does 200 mph. But that's just me. I need an AR-15 too

    Refreshing to hear. I am surprised the news editors at that station didn't edit that out before they posted the video on the website.

    she never fired a weapon before today and seemed to be hooked. She really seemed all about our rights, when she asked me what I thought of those who think that no one should have a weapon and I replied "well that is their right to say that, however I wish they would use their right to try and take away mine" She really seemed like someone that opened up to the idea.

    Freudian slip, I hope. Though, obviously she got your point and warmed to the idea.

    Sounds like the interview went well. Another convert, perhaps ... and hopefully a whole audience of citizens who're opening their minds a bit.

    She'll never make it as a reporter! You can't really tell the truth and function in that job!

    Makes you wonder how many in the "food chain" (above the reporter's job) won't warm to a pro-gun stance. Highly variable, depending on the organization, but likely to be a tough road for a young reporter. One of the "truths" she'll learn soon enough, no doubt. Still, it's heartening to see what a reasonable discussion with a reasonable citizen can do.

    That usually happens to them within that first magazine, they warm up to guns and fall in love.. hook, line and sinker.
    Why?? Because at the last second, the Police are minutes away.

    Good for them for the honest coverage!

    That's the probability that my local news would ever attempt to present a balanced view on gun rights/legislation/restrictions.

    Thumbs up to them, and PIMKing for a job well done.

    I would have liked to have seen a statement along the lines of "those supporting gun sales have little to no experience with guns or gun issues... most are simply reacting emotionally to the events in Colorado... very few have thought through all the issues"

    Do you mean opposing gun sales?
