    Just flipping through the channels and stumbled into to this. Started at 10pm. If you suffer from low blood pressure... this might solve your problem.

    Hmm... so far, the documentary is not that bad. They're interviewing families that teach their children to shoot at young ages. Thus far, they are focusing on two families. One with a 6 year-old boy who is attending a class specifically designed for young shooters at a gun range, and another family who's father custom built an AR-15 for his 12 year-old daughter.

    This is a british made documentary. I'm sure the *opinion* will eventually emerge later in the show.

    Hey - they just showed a VCDL bumper sticker!!

    I don't have MSNBC handy on the tube, but I searched the site and cam up with several video clips from what might be the story you're referring to.

    Clickification.

    The announcer is decidedly British, but I don't hear them saying anything overtly negative...though they do get a few minor gun facts confused. But that's to be expected I suppose. (I'm not aware of US special forces hamstringing themselves in the field with semi-only AR's)

    Ahh... there it was. They just had the gun show promoter who was charged after the 8 year-old kid shot himself with an Uzi at a shooting event, on the show. It was obviously taped before the incident. They froze the last frame and ran the text about the tragedy.

    You've got to sound balanced before you start all the propaganda lies, it makes you sound more credible.
