Perpetuating the stereotype...
That show "The Mentalist" is playing on the telly while the wife and I surf the net. I don't normally watch the show, but tonight's episode focuses on a stereotypical "Gun Nut"... A heavily armed guy on the verge of snapping for ideological reasons. They even arrest this guy for carrying concealed, and find out he has a carry permit and have to release him. Then the good guys have to find a reason to arrest him because he's such a danger to society. Of course, this all goes down California.

I made an attempt to like that program.Sadly, he is just another metro sexual character, like the men on the new Hawaii Five -O
Pain is the best teacher,but nobody wants to go to his class.
When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.

Yeah, it doesn't look like anything I could get into. However, that new show "Person of Interest" is pretty good stuff.

Just your typical liberal Hollywierd all guns are bad and cause people to instantly run around killing everything in sight mentality.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

No kidding... I find that more than a little hypocritical since ~85% of movies and TV shows feature firearms at some point.

You all missed the best part, they searched his home, then the BG went on a shooting rampage with a full auto submachinegun but, he did not kill anyone. Why, how, what; because when they searched his home they replaced all of his ammo with blanks. Freaking retarded (my wife and #2 daughter make we listen) how could you not notice the strange crimp at the end of the cartridge instead of a bullet; plus, I dont think any auto will cycle using blanks unless the weapon is fitted with a BFA. blablabla...

They can do about anything on TV or in the movies. Quite a lot of it isn't exactly legal!

There is a reason that it is called Hollyweird.
When you have weird people writing weird scripts with weird actors in weird places, you have to expect weird things.

If you want a show that at least for a moment portrayed gun owner in a positive light, the premiere episode of Prime Suspect. The lead, a female cop in NYC, had a safe full of guns in her apartment. Her boyfriend's ex was "negotiating" letting the BF's kid stay there and was a way out super-safety nut. Got all up in arms about guns in the house and all.
Cut to scene of Jane hauling a bunch of long guns, in soft cases, to her dad's home for temporary storage in one of his safes (well, I though I saw two safes in his place.)
The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.
I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

Last season final he shot and killed man he throught was Red John ,the man who killed he killed his wife and daughter.He did not have a permit to carry .It turned out the man was a serial rapes and maybe a murderer but he was not Red John.Hollywood can be real hypocrites,

That's just too much weirdness for me. I knew there was a good reason for never watching TV.

If it weren't for sports, I would never watch TV anymore.

We only have the TV in our bedroom (one in Guest room for guests) I read more than watch TV, most people put the TV on when they are home! Would drive me nuts (more nuts?)

I have DirectTV and they brag about the "hundreds" of channels they offer, but 1/2 of them are usually playing some kind of infomercial.
I do love my Versus & Outdoor channels though! Lock and load Mondays are SWEET!
