Reply Avid Reader says: December 13, 2011 at 12:09 I’m surprised that we’ve gone this far in the comment thread without an observation about the reporterette’s guns. Now that the ice has been broken. . . Reply Bob says: December 13, 2011 at 13:41 Nice guns! I want to take them home. The firearms ain’t bad either… Reply CarlosT says: December 13, 2011 at 13:40 If I had the money, I’d be very likely to give an M4gery of some sort in 300 BLK a loving home, but alas, it’s not to be this holiday season. Reply Pete says: December 13, 2011 at 14:28 It has been interesting and encouraging to watch the change in local news coverage of gun ownership in the last 30 years. Back in the dark ages of the 1970s, this news piece would have featured a concerned and outraged reporter decrying the whole idea of making guns seem attractive. Now they have a female reporter who actually fired a handgun, on camera, and the tone of the coverage was mildly amused and even a tad approving. They didn’t even get an outraged comment from the Brady Coalition to Disarm Americans! As an old fart CEFE (charmingly eccentric firearms enthusiast), I am highly encouraged by this level of acceptance of individual firearms ownership. If you want more good news, go to the St. Petersburg Times (www.tampabay.com) on Dec.11, 2011, and look for a story titled “Dramatic shift in US attitudes behind gun acquisition”. The Gallup poll results must have the anti-gun groups frothing at the mouth. All of their years of “guns are evil” propaganda have failed.

Reply Mikeb302000 says: December 14, 2011 at 09:37 Very smart, very funny and very effective. Of course that finger on the trigger at about 1:50 kinda ruined the video, but the radio ad is wonderful. Reply Anthony Meruelo says: December 14, 2011 at 11:18 I agree that it’s an amazing ad. What made me really facepalm, though, was the gun owner with the 5.11 hat. I wouldn’t mind if it said he was an employee of the store, but my God, too much mallninja. Edit: Jesus Christ, I just noticed the Krav Maga shirt. Reply GS650G says: December 14, 2011 at 15:39 Very nice, pretty reporter. She has a future on Fox News for sure. Reply Joe says: December 15, 2011 at 01:03 Hey mister tattoo hands, finger off the friggin trigger. Reply Write a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
