    TV Show I'd like to see

    I like reading the true “Armed Citizen” success stories like in American Rifleman. I’d really like a Reality Reenactment TV show of same true stories. Maybe the NRA and others could sponsor one to aire every now and then?

    Anyone else here like that idea?

    That's the first section I turn to when the mag comes in the mail. The “Armed Citizen” is the best part & would make a great show! I'm IN.

    Figure out a way to produce a promotional show at the level required for broadcast and pitch it to PBS or Versus. Sort of a "this old house" kinda thing.

    Not cheap but you might be able to get a gov grant and some private sponsorship to pay most of it.

    I'd like to see armed responses to the bad villains in the Jason , Texas Chainsaw etc. movies where an armed citizen stops the fear and loathing is short order. But then, the movies in question would only last a couple of minutes!

    I sure would like to see something like that also, but you and me both know the anti's would be out in force hitting every cancel button on every network they could to where just maybe some local network with a viewing audience of 237 people would watch it because it could not be broadcast out of that area.

    Other then that aspect of it, I'm all for it, but I'm afraid were going to have to wait till the next administration to make a pitch for it.

    NO!
    PBS is as liberal as they get. They are anti-gun.
    Versus is owned by GE and they got pulled off Direct TV over fees.

    You need a sponsor. Firearms.

    Yep. Something like that. I'd watch it.

    I like watching The First 48 because it is based on real-life instances of catching the bad guy. Unfortunately, The First 48 only starts after someone has lost their life.

    It would be good to see a show that recapped real-life accounts where the good guys were able to defend themselves. Kind of in the format of that show about people who should be dead but survived -- I can't remember what it's called -- I Survived? I Shouldn't Be Alive? Something like that.

    Are you talking about the Obama government? Good luck.
    I have seen "hunting" shows on PBS. I have also seen a lot of "gun shows" on Versus. Either network appears to be fairly openminded on broadcast subjects.

    Grants are given on the basis of funding availability, the need, and the quality of the grant request. The subject isn't really considered except as part of "the need" for the project. Base the grant on crime statistics and not "guns."

    Yes, the Obama administration. They are OUR government are they not? To say that the networks are against us, the government grant program is against us, and the government itself is against us essentially says "why try, you'll just fail anyway" and then give up.

    If no one tries, then how do we know it can't be done?

    I've had the same thought a time or two. I would watch that show and I hate TV.
