Anti-Gun Bias in TV Movies

I was watching this (admitedly) bad movie on satellite the other day. It was one of those "the sun is going to blow up and destroy the world in seven days" kind of disaster movies. Crazed mobs were rioting in the streets and there was mass chaos. It was about this time that a serial killer escaped custody and went searching for the witness who had put him away for life. To make a LONG and (boring) terrible storyline short: He finds her and her family. He's about to kill her husband (played by Jason Priestly) so she takes her gun and shoots him several times. Bad guy dies and falls into the pond out behind the house. It is at this point that she realizes that she's just saved her family by killing the bad guy with her gun, and what does she do next? That's right ladies and gentlemen, she recoils from her gun like it's a live scorpian and hurls it into the pond. At this point, I'm thinking "WTF? This gun, with her guidance (it's a tool) just saved her family's lives, and she throws it into the pond?" With a growl of disgust I turned off the TV.


I guess it was too much to ask for even the bad "Mini-Series" type TV movies to not have some hokey "Anti-Gun" rhetoric thrown in.

Heard From a Friend

I know a guy who's divorced and luckily has custody of his kids. He's a shooter and a reloader and owns several guns, properly put up of course. Anyway, he related to me the other day a conversation he'd had with his ex-wife when she'd come over to visit the kids.

He'd always put up his reloading suplies when she'd come over before, but this time he was tired of putting them away and then bringing them back out when she left (he reloads on his kitchen counter currently). So this time he just left it all out in plain site.

It took her a while, but she finally saw a box of bullets sitting on the kitchen table. "These aren't real?" she asked.

"Yes!" he said.

"What do you use them for?" she asked.

To which he replied, "Target shooting."

"There's a gun in the house?" she asked, as if it were a marauding beast or a slithering cobra.

"Yeah, somewhere, put up." was his answer.

He told me at that point she went silent and didn't say anything else about it. You can probably tell from this brief exchange why the two of them aren't married anymore. And good riddance I say. It's good too that he has custody of the children and can teach his kids proper gun safety and use without being saddled with their mother's liberal bias. Sometimes good things do happen in this world!

Sign The Petition!

Petition ABC to fire Rosie O'Donnell.

We, the viewing public, respectfully submit that it is time to return ABC's The View to responsible broadcasting.

Irresponsible comments such as those recently made by Rosie O'Donnell on The View have ranged from promoting conspiracy theories about 911, to accusations that war is planned with Iran, to implications that ABC News is a propaganda arm of the U.S. government.

If ABC wishes to maintain its credibility, it must cease to provide a platform for irresponsible conspiracy theorists such as Rosie O'Donnell, and it must provide an equal alternate voice to present both sides of issues.

Until action is taken by ABC to restore responsible programming, I, the undersigned, will no longer watch The View or other ABC programming. Instead, I will contact sponsors of The View to share my concerns.
