HELGA: Where are you going?
HAGAR: To sign a peace treaty with the King of England.
HELGA: Then why take all those weapons?
HAGAR: First we gotta negotiate...

Thanks for the head up, I'll be sure to watch.
I'm a child of the 60's, but I got over it.

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.

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.

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 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.

Some time back 20/20 ran another pro-gun segment.
If you don't protect your self, who will?
