program presents both sides fairly well
26 April 2011 | by grafxmanSee all my reviews

The show presents both ends of a complex issue. For some reason there doesn't seem to be a middle ground. I found it very interesting and extremely ironic that the white NRA guy who always kept a gun at his fingertips inside his house and outside his house had exactly the same outlook on personal safety as the two Philly ghetto dwelling African Americans who also carried guns and kept guns readily available inside and out. A statement by the NRA guy really stands out in my mind: it's better to have a gun and not need it than to need one and not have it. There's a sort of irrefutable common sense logic to that statement.

Frankly I expected another foaming at the mouth anti-gun diatribe but that isn't what this is about. Both ends of the issue are presented by the various adherents. The thing is, if you respect the constitution's second amendment as well as the Supreme Court ruling supporting it then all the anti-gun hysteria seems really pretty dumb. I guess the anti-gun nuts like the Brady bunch just need the money they get to pay for their nice offices and salaries.
