No biggie. I nuked the duplicate post for you.

Yeah, what can you expect from the commie #$%^#^#? It kills me when they keep insinuating that the AWB bans full-auto weapons. I know that the people reporting the stories know differently.

I saw that clip on ABC news and man did it piss me off. The first thing they show as they are saying "semi-automatic" are clips of that famous LA shootout and the guys had machineguns. What a bunch of liberal skewmasters and it shows how liberal the media is. I should have expected nothing less from a Canadian socialist. :evil:

I graduated college with a Journalism degree. Got hired onto a weekly newspaper chain covering a small bedroom community.

My views were well known in the newsroom. To remove any doubt of my Second Amendment views, a picture of my girlfriend (now wife) shootin' my AR was on my desk.

*************

I called my career choice into question when I got sucked into a discussion with some members of the Editorial Board.

Remember the Black Rhino back in 94/95? You know, that bullet that could magically punch through a Level III vest and then mushroom into a devastating wound channel? Well, our newspaper chain was going to take a stance on the issue and print it as a House Edit on the topic (that's what they call those items on the far left of the editorial page).

They decided to consult the resident "gun nut" for a little technical info. I told 'em it was a bunch of crap. I went into excruciating detail into ballistics (internal, external and terminal) and pulled out every article I had on what ammo can do what. No way in hell a round could do that, I said. They either punch through or mushroom, etc. I was pretty darned proud of myself.

Then a week later, I read the editorial page.

"BAN THE RHINO" screamed the headline. It ended up being a regurgitation of a HCI press release, as well as a twisted interpretation of one of the Marshall & Sanow articles I gave 'em.

Let's just say my young idealism was pretty much crushed by that. I got a good object lession as to how "impartial" editors can be.

You bet there's a media bias.

Anyway, to make a long story short, I'm no longer using my degree, making a heckuvalot more cash, and I'm not looking back...

PS: The only bright side to the experience is that I took a staff photographer to the range a few times; he ended up getting his state gun permit... and his first real rifle was a Norinco M-14!!!
