    Unhappy Looking For A Video

    A friend told me about a video about a lady who lives in Boston who is anti-gun. She volunteered to move in with a gun collector for a couple of weeks. I can't seem to find the it. Can anyone give me a link to this video?

    It's from a TV show called "30 Days". The episode is called "Gun Nation" Here's a link:

    I tried to watch the video but I could only make it through a few minutes before that lady made me want to throw up in my mouth.

    How clueless...

    It was a happy ending with lots of kissing and hugging. They met in the middle on the topic somewhat. She realized by the end of the whole thing that there are good people that have guns and use them for good.

    (him) Okay, you can pull the trigger whenever you're ready. (her) *BLAM* Waaaaaa! Waaaaaa! Waaaaaaaaaaa! (him) What's the matter? Did it hurt? (her) No.

    WTF is up with that? Firing a shotgun at a flying orange saucer brought her to tears???? Did I miss something?

    We should invite her to the next NC Range Day. Last time we busted up 3 cases of clays, and could have shot another 3 if we'd had more daylight.

    Not a tear was shed, and nobody complained.

    I try to take at least 1 "shooting virgin" to the range each month. So far, I've had positive results with every new shooter I've taken to the range. I've NEVER had a new shooter cry, and most of them end up at the end of the day asking when we can go shooting again...

    The above link works, but could only play the first few minutes of it. No longer available on Hulu.

    Found it on Amazon Video on Demand, and Itunes (if you have an Ipod). Both sites offer it for $1.99.

    Overall....a very good piece. Pia went into this with a very one-sided opinion of guns, and came out of it with a very neutral point of view. Seems like it opened up her mind some.
