    (?) 30 Days: Gun-Control Activist Lives with Gun Enthusiast

    Next on 30 Days:

    PARTICIPANT - Pia Lalli, 39
    RESIDES - Brockton, MA
    OCCUPATION - Aerobics Instructor
    AIRDATE - Tuesday, July 1, 2008

    After Pia learned that her friend had been killed by a schizophrenic man wielding a gun in 1996, she became a gun control advocate who has fought to pass stricter gun laws in the U.S. Pia believes that the world would be free from gun violence only by prohibiting the sale of guns to anyone outside of law enforcement and armed services.

    For 30 Days, Pia will live in the heart of gun culture in the rural town of Leesburg, Ohio with gun enthusiast Ken Ekermeyer, 39, and his 15-year-old son Zach. Ken is an avid gun collector and rarely leaves home without his gun strapped to his side. Ken believes carrying a gun is his right guaranteed to every American by the Second Amendment. As Pia struggles to understand the Ekermeyer's beliefs and somewhat isolated way of life, she will work at a local gun store and experience what it is like to carry a gun in public, learn to handle and fire weapons and will introduce Ken to other gun control activists who have lost loved ones to gun violence.

    Sounds like an extreme wife swap segment

    I think I'll set this one up on DVR...it will be interesting how this plays out. I don't know that I trust the sponsors of the show to set up a fair test. I just hope they chose responsible gun owners for the show.

    past "30 days" segments have been rather good. The maker is a liberal ;-) but I found that they picked the right people to represent both side. I remember one where they had a "minuteman" stay with illegal immigrants and a christian with a muslim family. Both episodes went over quite calm. Don't expect any shouting (or shooting ;-) ) matches.

    So, uh, if the maker of the show can find and film illegal immigrants, why can't the feds?

    before going totally off topic ;-)... I think they can find them. But what are they going to do with them once they found them. For a good read, look for "The Deporter".

    It's scheduled for tonight on FX.
    I posted a link to an eppy with a hunter but I guess that's not allowed because it was removed :P

    At any rate, the problem I had with previous "Anti hunter" episodes was that they picked a guy that wasn't well versed in anti-hunting canned responses and stuck him in with activists that openly lied to him about dairy farming. He bought it hook line and sinker finally ending with "I guess you could say I'm an activist".

    Kinda ticked me off. We'll see how tonight turns out.

    yup. and pretty cool. Lots of old TV shows with very little commercials. Only draw back: you can't download them to watch them later (e.g. on an ipod). requires a decent internet connection.
