Locally the report will be on KTAR, MONDAY.
Got a call this am from an ABC radio guy. Lon Braithwaite.
I cringed when I saw the (212) origin of the call.
In my inimitable style I ranted for about 30 seconds regarding the Nightline debacle and pled with the guy to NOT put idiots from California, MA, NY or some other Commie state on to comment on this Sunset, their opinion being IRRELEVANT because nothing will change in thier state due to state level AWBs.
In other words, tell that batty-eyelid Chief Bratton to STFU.
He gave me his word that the interview would be done "straight" and requested that I stop swearing so he wouldnt have to edit too much out.
(grin, sorry folks, I was incensed)
He also apologized for the TV guys, but explained that he's a Radio guy and that it wasnt his department.
He seemed to know more than the TV guy did about weapons.
I gave a good interview, only about 5 questions. I was cogent, relevant, technically and legally accurate and kept my soapboxing to a minimum.
Maybe we'll get a fair shake on this one.
After watching Nightline and seeing all the machine guns on there, I was so incensed that I rewrote the whole AZEX homepage to reflect it.
The News Director who called me from NYC balked that I'd have a problem with them sending out a camera crew so I could explain what would become legal again on Monday.
THEN THE DIRTY BASTARDS PUT FULL AUTO GUNS ALL OVER AND TRY TO ASSOCIATE THE AWB WITH THOSE!
It was nice to see my home page on the news, evening and Nightline.
(I had edited the other thread but then it disappeared)
huh???/ I don't get it
there was nothing but a black x when i first posted.
I get it now.
isn't this a dupe from yesterday?
Why in the &*! wouldn't you let them show on camera just how stupid the ban is???
WHY DID YOU BALK AT THE OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE THEM SHOW ON CAMERA HOW RETARDED IT IS?
Hell they probably showed the full-auto footage because they couldn't get what they wanted from you?
I explained that the pics were there, and we all knew what they were REALLY going to put on TV, no matter what I showed them.
I said that gunowners are used to "Michael Moore" editing to make the facts conform with the agenda.
He laughed when I said that ABC has an agenda.
Then they showed Iraq and the N. H'wood shootout on TV and implied that the AWB had something to do with full autos.
Total Crap. I'm glad I didnt let their stinky, Leftist asses in my shop.
