NGC - Explorer - "Guns in America" Pro or Anti (Merged)
Im watching this show now. Im scared at the same time excited.
At this point Im unsure if this show is biased for or against guns.
Let us know your thoughts on this episode.
Is this another left wing loony bin anti-gun rights propaganda show?
Is this aimed to show the reality of the positives of gun ownership in America?
national geographic program last night
They had a special Explorer program about guns in America.
Typical one sided reporting. The showed a philly cop that was shot in the face by a shotgun. They also showed a greek imigrant now US citizen that has a large collection of guns. His wife and daughters shoot with him. They also showed a young mother whose husband grabbed a shotgun out of the closet when someone kicked in the door of the the house.
The mother said she as he was getting the gun, "What would I do if something happens to him? I have no way of defending the children."
They did not report the outcome of the break in, if the intruder fled at teh sound of the alarm, or if the husband chased him off, you couldn't even tell if the husband was still alive! They then showed the mother going to a gun show (by herself) to look into purchasing a gun. She also went to a range and took a gun safety course and tried several different guns. She was actually a very good shot.
They mentioned the number of states with CC laws and castle doctrin laws, but made no mention of the reduction in violent crimes that usually occurs when gun laws are relaxed.
The only statistics they did mention was the number of children shot by guns in the home and the number of suicides involving guns. I think they said that half the number of people killed in the US were suicides. This can't be right!
They also showed a young street banger that was shot in the neck by his "Friend" that was carelessly waving a gun around.
