I'm going to watch and see if they feature any exploding cinder block walls or such that media love to show evil assault rifles shooting through. with their 30 round "clips".

not sure. IIRC, I think they are following 5 guns? not sure where/who.

I’m sure those guns will be up to no good.

Does anybody actually watch nightline anymore?!? The last time I remember watching it was probably 1995 (no joke).

I wonder if the gun will jump up and assault anyone.

The average gun spends 90% of its time locked up in a safe or cabinet.

If they followed mine, it would be pretty boring. Sit on shelf for 30 days. Used to shoot coke cans. Cleaned. Back on shelf. Maybe for extra excitement, they will go out with some other guns but not get used that day.

So a day in their lives would typically involve sitting motionless in a dark cabinet for 24 hours...should be a ratings killer!

How about a follow-up with “a day in the life of an unborn American?”

I’ll add my guns must like me, because they never leave home on their own. Even if I leave the door unlocked, they NEVER go out and shoot someone...

How about following a few of the guns from Fast and Furious?

It's far more than 90% of the time if you have a decent collection. Anytime I reach into my safe and pull out a gun to shoot, all my other guns start pouting. Some of them even cry! It's worse than having multiple wives!

The one that used to shoot Coke cans is racist. Signed 7 Up the unCola.

Most guns spend their days in a drawer or glove compartment or closet or gun safe.

I'm sure they won't be following any of those.

Anti-gun programs are all a Johnny one note.

They have been this way since 1964. This is like 1968 all over again.

How about a day in the life of a checked out urbanite divorcee with no control over her madman son? Wonder what THAT looked like?

We’ll never know, though, will we? Dad was nowhere to be found, so he doesn’t know either ...older son? A goner.

anyone going to watch Nightline tonight?

I stopped watching Nightline about 20 years ago. I have a way too weak stomach. Did I read a few years ago that Koppel retired? If so, is(are) the new guy(s) at least tied for "as bad as Koppel?"

it wasn’t as ham-handed and biased as I expected.

buy comparing a mom,dad, and kids target shooting and hunting in TX to kids with no fathers in Philly shooting at each other is not an apples to apples.
