    I watched John Stossels 20/20 show friday night and was very pleased with the outcome. It was very pro gun and made a lot of good points for CCW carry. It was short but good.

    I'll second that. A very factual, rhetoric free report.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    I saw the broadcast too.

    On a side note--is it my imagination, or is the gun control segment the only one not listed on the linked page?

    I believe you are correct. I bet ABCNEWS.com couldn't live with themselves by hosting that clip.

    What if the sheep were to learn the facts? Oh, heaven forbid.

    The report gets an A+ in my book! I really liked the line: "You can call the police, and they will arrive in time to take a picture of your dead body!" I thought that pretty well sums up the situation.


    ETA: I don't want to give the impression that I am anti-LEO. Far from it! It's just that I believe we should all take responsibility for our own safety and protection when the likely hood of help is remote.

    That was the best! I love somone on this forum's signature that says something like, "When seconds count, the police arrive in minutes."

    I'm a full-blown fan of LEO's, but the basic logistical truth is captured in that quote, as well as the quote in the Stossel piece.

    I shooting with a retired LEO several times a month and he'll be the first to tell you it's best to be well trained and rely on your own protection.

    That really was a good segment and that line is one I'll keep with me as I discuss the option to carry concealed with those who are in a learning mind set.
