“For people like me, who neither own a gun nor know very many people who do, [Top Shot] helps counteract some of the most extreme, uninformed stereotypes that many liberals and urbanites have about ‘gun guys,'” Justin Peters writes for the decidedly not pro-gun slate.com. “The show clearly demonstrates something that often gets lost in the heat of the gun control debate: that gun owners aren’t all crazy survivalists or slavering right-wing fanatics. A lot of them are just reasonable, responsible sportsmen who enjoy shooting guns because shooting guns can be a lot of fun . . . In this time of polarized discourse around guns and gun control, the country needs a show like Top Shot more than ever. Here’s hoping tonight isn’t the end of its run.” Agreed?
