Woman in Texas wants more CCW (teachers, principals, etc) This is helping the cause.. Dateline 9pm Eastern/8Central Later, Chris

Wether it helps the cause or not is entirely dependant on how the Dateline people package it.

She said what she wanted, was not intimedated and she came across as the girl next door. It wasclear what she said and to the point. We all need spokespeople like her.[:D]

comon, can't be, this is not P.C.

I loved how she just said that she did not care what anyone thought on this matter. Also, NBC did not seem to try to slant the story to make her into some kind of nut. Their lack of demonization of her was actually refreshing.

Awesome lady. I liked her point about gun-free zones, If they are gun free then why all of these crimes? I have heard about the situation in the Texas cafeteria but never the whole view of the story. Her father gets the next vote for "balls of the day" award, what a great man.

I was surprised that 20/20 didn't try to put some hideous spin on the program to make the Representative from Texas look like some crazed gunman/woman. I thought that she really had it together when she told 20/20 that she would not allow herself to be photographed while holding a gun, as to allow the media to portray her as less than a model citizen. The part about her not caring about what other said and the fact that she thought people needed to get their facts to understand that the 2nd amendment is about personal rights, not collective rights.

Gotta give Dateline credit, it was an excellent segment, and Suzanna Hupp did her usual great job presenting our side. I think the principal who said he didn't want to be "responsible" to stop a crazed lunatic attacking him and his students, shows why we'll never get them to see the importance of CCW everywhere and anywhere. We have a country full of people who don't think they should be responsible for protecting themselves or their loved ones.

I missed it!!!! Do they replay dateline later??? I really want to see that segment....
Link Posted: 7/13/2001 10:34:53 PM EDT
I wouldn't believe that NBC would have a story that was PRO-gun if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes!
Link Posted: 7/13/2001 10:46:52 PM EDT
Good story. Did anybody else notice the unsafe gun handling by that guy with his two sons? The guy is showing how to load a revolver, and one of his kids is leaning over the table and looking right at the gun barrel. That guy needs a refresher course. [whacko]

Drumroll please....... 4) A national media news outlet airs a balanced segment concerning gun issues. The segment did not contain any militia members espousing the overthrow of the Federal Government or hillfolk who seemed to not know what a toothbrush is. Pinch me.

A week ago we were all in a tizzy about the U.N. conference. And now, everything is coming up roses? Something is wrong here. I'm not used to this. Probably some evil plot to put us off guard and then screw us over in one fell swoop.

Enjoy it while you can, because "zebra's don't change their stripes." The media will be back to bash the gunners when the political wind changes.
