Channel 8 News was here today for an interview on the assault weapons ban expiring. They did not tell me they were coming and I was moving a safe when they showed up. I tried to to relay the best information I could about the ban . What makes it to the news I do not know but hopefully we will look good. The media will make it look like kaos will hit the streets monday in some places. I tried to educate the reporter as he knew nothing about firearms or the ban. I think it went well but let me know what you think as I will be doing a lot more interviews in the future.

Too bad it wasn't that reporter chick from the other story. She seemed pretty interested in the issues. I have that tape for you Jon, get it to you next time I am by.

I just watched it. Jon did a great job. The reporter was more even handed than I expected.

Online Poll

Weigh in: The 1994 law banning 19 types of semi-automatic assault weapons expires on Monday, 9/13. Do you think President Bush should renew the law?

Thank you for participating in our poll. Here are the results so far.

Yes
9%

No
91%

Undecided
0%

Don't care

Do you think Channel 8 will gleefully post the results of the poll? 91% wow.... Maybe Las Vegas is still forward thinking after all.....

I was impressed with the anchor man (the one that used to be at Channel 3) quoting a Las Vegas Metro Sgt.'s opinion that it would NOT make a difference with crime here in the valley. FAIR reporting from KLAS and FAIR response from Metro. You honestly can't ask for more than that.

thanks,
Ron

I agree. I was expecting big network style spin on it, but they did the right thing.

Good stuff, lets take the opportunity to educate people during this time.

BTW, 7 hours left!!!!

Unfortunately I am unable to view the video, IO have no idea why. The wording in the story is not neutral, but i didn't expect it to be.

I thought it was cool that they said the police do not expect crime to rise... I have heard stupid police chiefs and officers say the opposite.
