Just saw an ad on CNN for Wolf Bizer reports. The topic of the show? "Is the Maryland sniper a person with extraordinary skill or an average person with extremely powerful weapons? We also expose how easy it is to buy lethal hardware in your neighborhood." (I did paraphase this)

The Maryland sniper: Sharpshooter or average person with a sophisticated rifle? Find out who has access to high-tech weapons.

That's the actual quote from one of the promos on the website, and I already sent the producers an email, suggesting that they focus on the deranged shooter and not on demonizing whatever rifle he's using.

Yeah I saw the previews for that last night. It is for the Wolf Blitzer show today at 5pm EST. i couldn't believe what I was hearing. "Is this sniper a very skilled shooter, or somebody who has very sophisticated weaponry". (Or something along those lines). Stupid me thinking skill was the only way possible. I didn't know there where such neat-o guns that you could tell the gun where to shoot and it will hit what you want. [rolleyes]

I didn't have a lot of time, but I could not find the link on the cnn.com web site. If someone could post a link, I would be sure to put in my .02

Actually, the premise of skilled shooter vs. sophisticated rifle makes some sense, but it's too simple a topic for a show. If it turns out the guy is using iron sights, he's a pretty skilled shooter. If it turns out it's a scoped bolt action, it could be my grandmother. That's a pretty short show.

What exactly is a high tech weapon anyway? Are there those new computer controlled aiming systems I slept through? Here is the link to the page: [url]http://www.cnn.com/CNN/Programs/wolf.blitzer.reports/[/url]
