Since the stock market was closed today been watching a show on CNBC all evening The Car Chasers not a bad show, guess CNBC is jumping on the wagon and calling their night time network
CNBC Prime and doing some reality TV.

But every break in the show  that I am watching they give a short teaser for-----   America's Gun: The Rise Of The AR-15  April 25

That's a ripoff of the recent Glock book title.

An AR-15 Assault Rifle is the most deadly device known to man.  If you simply purchase ammunition readily available on store shelves(stock footage circa 2000 of a LGS goes here) you can mow down dozens of bystanders in a single assault clip.  Don't want to buy bullets?  The destructive assault rifle can be used to beat people to death with.  We sit down after our break to interview Bob Costas, a former trainer of the Magpul Cooperation, the same company that produces high capacity assault killing clips, to get his thoughts on recent introductions of gun violence reduction legislation.

it'll be 90% insulting anti-gun propaganda, 5% foolish anti-gun propaganda, 4% subtle anti-gun propaganda and 1% incorrect facts.

Just finished it the other day. Pretty good. Makes me not want to put more $$ in Gaston Glocks piggy bank though.

Well written. And all of the video feed will be that of M-16s on full auto.

I think it was Massad Ayoob who said AR should be re- defined to mean "America's Rifle."

Too bad it never really seemed to gain a following.

I'm sure this honestly will be watched by a lot of people.  Hopefully it's not a wacko broadcast.

This propaganda piece may actually result in increased AR-15 demand.  By increased I mean even more than it is already.

they timed this anticipating the ban would pass in the Senate and would air when the debate goes on in the House



Jokes on them though

I guess I may have to break my boycott and actually tune in to CNBC tonight. But if it's the hit piece I expect I'm going to reimpose the CNBC ban.

Yup, doing an excellent job of making AR owners look insane and making it seem that an AR is full auto. Color me surprised.

Overall I think it did a pretty good job of staying neutral, except for the Yeager section which was fairly bad. It was better overall than I had expected going into it, and I could only count a couple instances where it misrepresented items as facts in order to paint the AR in a bad light.
