    "Gun Fight" HBO Documentary

    I just watched this on HBO. WOW! What a biased pile of crap. Basically, all that the last 45 - 60 minutes was "need more gun control" and edited video to back it up. The best was going into a "thug's" house and watching him and his homie pulling guns from everywhere talking about "killin' muthers who try to come up in here"
    I did miss the first 15 minutes, so I don't know what was there, but what I did see was just plain ridiculousness. I saw a whole of how guns kill innocent people, and need control, but nothing on how gun controlled environments cause crime and gun deaths.

    Did see our Open Carry fellows on there!

    Anyways, the show, IMO, was crap. I wish a pro-gun documentary would make mainstream.

    You mean this one http://www.hbo.com/documentaries/gun-fight/index.html ? WARNING - Do not click on the link until you have taken your blood pressure meds and tightly wraped your head with duct tape. Attending a few anger control sessions might also be helpful. Do not watch with young children present as words they should not hear may slip out of your mouth.

    Just don't know how they can call it a "documentary" as opposed to an "editorial". But I guess that's why it is referred to as the lamestream media.

    stay safe.

    HBO, like allot of Hollywood is corrupt, vulgar, perverted and has no real basis in portraying real America.

    That video is, well, I try not to get worked-up over things I watch, and read. Unfortunately people buy into videos like this one.
    I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...

    I forgot the duct tape! Just returned from the ER following a near aneurysm...

    I watched it with my young son, and was surprised at the words I heard coming out of his mouth! He should know better...

    It was an antiguntorial. Did you catch the credits? "Produced using donations provided in part by the Democratic Party, the United Nations, the Committees to re-elect Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama, Hilary Clinton, Diane Feinstein, Eric Holder..."

    ....re-elect Eric Holder?
    "I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it." - Thomas Jefferson.

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare
