    I thought Keith Morgan did a very good job. I am not sure I would have outed myself on TV though.

    Yea, he did a good job.

    He has the same hair problem I do. I've pulled it all out trying to talk rationally with liberals.

    Most of the media such as this interviewer are like the idol worshippers of ages past and now this age:

    "When those who are governed do too little, those who govern can, and will, do too much." Ronald Reagan

    He still stepped in the "assault weapons" pile.

    The interviewer obviously believes in the mantra that "assault weapons" includes the AR-15 semi-auto rifle. The guy being interviewed dispelled that myth early on, in the interview.

    Trouble was, when the interviewer continued later by saying many of the recent attacks were committed using "assault" weapons, the guy agreed with him.

    In the past few years, a couple of the SKS rifles have been used; a few instances of AR-15's being used occurred; but largely the attacks that happen occur with easily-concealed handguns (pistols, almost exclusively). Can't recall the last time I read that a full-auto battle rifle was used in a crime in the U.S. Though, it wouldn't surprise me that some of the cartel murderers who cross the southern border have done their thing with such rifles (though, I don't know).

    He was good, but as evidenced by the reaction of the interviewer ("That's actually scary... you're armed right now?") there is no changing the mindset of the antis.

    I think that was miscommunication... the guy being interviewed thought he meant AR's, but the interviewee is under the mistaken belief (as are many) that Aurora and Sandy Hook were perpetrated with full-auto weapons.

    Great Interview

    I liked the way the interviewee controlled the interview. He didn't let the interviewer get away with any of the normal setting of the stage for the interview. The interviewee challenged him right from the start.

    My favorite part at 9:35 (Interviewee has just mentioned that he has a 9mm on him)
    Interviewer: You're armed, right now?
    Interviewee: Oh sure, you're not?

    He kind of freaked the interviewer out.

    The only problem was that the interviewee did not distinguish between "assault rifles" (aka: machine guns) and AR-15s and AK-47s available to us today. It could be that he just had too much to challenge and did not want to bring up yet another issue that they didn't have time for.

    Mr. Morgan did an excellent job.

    It's a good thing that the interviewer had on brown pants when he found out that his interviewee was armed...those stains are then camouflaged.

    Great interview - Mr. Morgan is to be commended for not accepting the host's preconceived notions from the start.

    I was waiting for Morgan to say the Founders never envisioned radio, television or the Internet!

    Amen! Did you see his expression change when Morgan said he was armed? Took a few seconds to sink in, but he sure got worried!
