Some of you may have learned by now about Katie Couric’s, shall we say, “creative editing” to make the VCDL look bad for her “Under The Gun” so-called “documentary”. She invited us for a panel discussion about why we’re pro-2A. She then deceptively edited some footage to make it look like we were “stumped” by one of her “gotcha” questions. But it didn’t actually happen that way.
I know, because I WAS THERE. You will get a first-hand account of it, from me.
Turns out she pulled a hack-job worthy of a Soviet-era “news” channel. I really thought she’d be more ethical than this.
Folks, I know we don’t always agree with each other as people. But fraudulent editing and lying should be off-limits, and Katie stepped over that line here. I’m going to show you, and it should make every one of you mad when you can’t trust the press to at least be honest. Disagree, fine, but at least be honest! She crossed that line.
We also continue our discussion of M1 Garands, this time, specifically the M1D Sniper Rifle. Shooting it takes you back a few years, and it got me to thinking about a few things.
I’m writing this two days, almost to the hour, after getting back from a trip to Thailand. I’ll give you some thoughts on visiting there, from a 2A perspective. And yes, jet lag is somethin’ else!
