I like all kinds of foreign guns.

I don't always use missiles, but when I do it's the Minuteman III LGM-30G
Time for me to bring back the Gadsden flag for the avatar.
They're pulling out all of the stops by giving the nod to the hallmark poster girl for anti-gunner liberty hatred in this country. Bummer her hubby went through a felon's nightmare, but that hardly gives anyone cause to go after all upstanding citizens in a vain attempt to get such felons to change one thing about how they go about crime.
I'm wondering: did CNN approach, or had she been banging on the door for awhile while licking her chops? Hm.
Well, Jeff Zucker is going to shove the agenda hard and deep. Probably his ratings as well.

OK, I am with them regarding the whole Piers was a moron point. But his holier than thou british BS was not the only problem - America doesn't like the IDEA regardless of the messenger; what is so hard to understand about this?
CNN is a failing network with an ever shrinking audience. Every television and radio network that has tried this continues to fail. You would think that the financial losses alone would convince them to drop this absurd line of programming.
Ol' Ben Franklin had a thing or two to say about that sort of thing, that bad trade. They deserve every ounce of our ire we can dish up, every time they seek to set fire to the Constitution and co-opt and corrupt our hired staff to do it.
Perhaps if they actually focused on core news, in-depth coverage, balanced weighing of all aspects of a given controversial story. They'd get much more mileage, I think, by eviscerating some of the clear agenda they've been sucking on this past 20-25years.
Here's an interesting snippet from the article:
"It's funny how things change, however. The Brady Campaign originally opposed NICS.
"A little history is in order. The Brady Campaign started out in 1974 as the National Council to Control Handguns (NCCH), and made no attempt to conceal the fact that as far as it was concerned, "Control" meant "Ban." In 1976, the group's then-leader, Nelson Shields, stated that the group envisioned a three-part plan to ban handguns, and the first part of the plan was to slow down handgun sales.
"Congress ultimately passed the legislation, named the "Brady Bill", but before it did so it approved an amendment by Rep. George Gekas (R-Pa.), requiring the waiting period provisions to end after five years, in favor of what we now know as NICS. HCI opposed the amendment vigorously.
"The Brady Campaign, which initially opposed NICS, now calls NICS checks "Brady checks," and proposes that they be applied to people who purchase firearms from people who are not firearm dealers."
The snakes in the grass may be changing their skins (they all seem to be dropping "ban" or "control" from their names, and adding "violence" instead), but their agenda is still clear - to first register guns, and then ultimately confiscate them and outright ban them.
Cogito, ergo armatum sum. I think, therefore I am armed. (Don Mann, The Modern Day Gunslinger; the ultimate handgun training manual)
