    Just received a VCDL alert that this is airing Tuesday night at 10pm. NG said that they'd notify me when it aired but I havent heard anything yet. Im assuming that its the same show.

    Why does he have to be black... why can we not stop portraying this stereotype. Shame on NG, shame on us all.

    The video starts right off showing people at a gun show as the narrator talks about how guns wind up on the black market, blah blah blah. 3 guesses what the bias is here.

    Guess I'll just have to wait 'til tonight.

    Having freelanced for NG as an editor, I can tell you that they are as leftist as any other media outlet.

    Don't trust the media. They are NOT on our side.

    (As evidenced by the recent election coverage.)

    Oh God.. please tell me you're kidding. Good Lord if that isn't a knee-jerk reaction.

    Gee, let's make him white or yellow or red. How about pink or maybe burgundy.

    BTW, some of my above rant is tongue-in-cheek and some is mild sarcasm.

    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    Worst line of the night (so far) "if any of the guns are stolen they will end up in criminal hands."

    WoW... I just watched for a couple minutes
    They are deomonizing the fact that in most states you can SHOOT someone who breaks in your house OH THE HORROR!...
    Typical leftist anti-gun hit piece drivel.

    Probably just the first in many programs to come meant to be a primer/hype to a Obama gun ban (circa 1993). Which, BTW... thanks again to all the GUN OWNERS that voted for that PIECE OF ****. Nice job

    My thoughts: I want my hour back. What a waste of time, watching this garbage. At least the people featured on the show sounded like they had a clue; the narrator's negative slant on EVERYTHING was particularly annoying.

    I agree with everything you just said. It was as if every time they showed something that was positive they would have to narrate it away, so to speak.

    I thought the worst line of the night was the last quoted statistic (un-sourced, as the rest of them were), right as the show was closing out: in 2005 in the U.S., a child was killed by gunfire once every two days.

    Holy crap! It's an epidemic! Think of the children!




    Mr. George Carlin had a thing or two to say about the children...

    "A gun in the home is 22 more likely to kill a family member than an intruder"

    How many times does this statistic have to be discredited before the media stops citing it? Its like using a "Silent Spring" reference.

    They don't limit their glossing of the facts to guns either....

    "Philadelphia, the city that gave the US the Constitution"


    Most of the brains behind the Constitution came from Virginia and Boston. Philly was a nice central meeting location. Not to mention that large parts of the US Constitution and Bill of Rights was taken from the VA Constitution

    Well look at the positive side. They used to quote the Kellerman study which claimed the number was 43 times...

    I flipped on the Discovery Channel last night to watch it and all that was on was a show on the Sturgis motorcycle rally.

    I guess Discovery doesnt show the National Geographic show in the Richmond area.

    I don't think he has any choice in the matter. I suspect he was born that way.

    National Geographic has it's own channel. They call it nat-geo to make it sound cool. :P

    Hear, hear....

    The policeman who said "If I weren't a police officer, I'd never carry a gun. This city is too dangerous." (or something to that effect).

    The police officer (I think) who said "In the United States, unfortunately people have the right to have a gun."

    The stereotypical machine-gun owner - unshaven, wearing ripped clothes, etc.

    I missed the first 15-20 minutes, but was disgusted with the rest of the piece. I kept waiting for the objective part, but in vain.

    OK, I think the folks at "nat-geo" need to A: stick to print B: go back to National Geographic, and C: stick to animals and nature photography.

    Oh, and D: drop the silly leftist bias.
