It was mostly about John Lott's research into the effectiveness of carrying handguns for self-defense. They cited the "2.5 million crimes defensive uses of guns each year" stat, and other such info. There WAS some jackass from one of the major gun-grabbing groups, but I guess they have to be fair an balanced...... oh well...

It wasn't fair and balanced at all it was completely on our side, you'll notice they didn't even show the anti's name even though they did everbody else? It was Josh Suckermann btw I think of VPC. [img]http://www.vpc.org/graphics/leadcov.jpg[/img]

Dang... missed the show and the "email this article" link doesn't seem to be working. ps... love the picture - except for the caption. I think I'll have to pull a copy of it for editing, then script a recursive ftp get for it... I wonder how much bandwidth VPC has available..... [;-)]

It was fairly week. They seemed as if they were going to show more than they did. They did breeze over that a-holes name but he had no credentials. They did show it as John Lott was one who actually knows something. The fact that they showed it at all is good. They also spent more time on Lott and the facts than they did the nitwit.
