NBC Cancels ALL Gun Related Programming
The Truth About Guns ^ | 12/17/12 | Nick Leghorn

Posted on 12/17/2012 8:12:55 PM PST by Mozilla

3-Gun Nation is a show that follows the top competitors in the United States as they make their way towards the 3-Gun national championship in Las Vegas, NV. It wasn’t a particularly interesting or exciting show, but it was a firearms related sports show that was picked up by NBC...

Apparently, following the shooting in Connecticut, NBC sports has decided to put an “indefinite moratorium” on shooting related shows.

Are they going to eliminate all programs with guns in them? Dramas and movies? Or is showing people shooting at targets bad but showing people shooting at people in their programs is acceptable. They ruined what once was OLN then Versus. At one time it had nothing but hunting shows.

LOL! I laugh upon their shirts!

Who cares what sort of statement these irrelevant people make?

The United States Constitution has second Ammendment that a mere TV show can not change.

Mob rule does not trump the Constitution. They can blankety-blank their blankety-blanks.

Oh there will still be guns on NBC. Every cop drama will still show gun owners as the bad guy, and all guns were bought with the “gun show loophole” or over the internet

All that this will do is have a run on guns. Tomorrow we’re going to our local Walmart to see if they still have that Ruger Ranch Mini-14. Be a nice addition to the M1 carbine and the .45 carbine we have.

Well, if the owners of 300+ million guns can’t make their case with their wallets and their representatives, they might as well collectively eat their guns.

Major overreaction. The show wasn’t even about crime or anybody doing harm to another person or graphic like the movies The Basketball Diaries or Pulp Fiction, for example.

Can NBC cancel “The New Normal” because people don’t need to see homos raising children..and also because that show is utter crap..which basically describes the majority of NBC programming to begin with

Agreed. Law and Order will still be on the air making gun owning,christian,right-wing folks the bad guy on every episode. I have a L&O fan in the house and have to leave the room when they watch re-runs on USA or TNT....the show makes me want to puke.

Look at the Biathlon. It was a sport that showed rifles in a good light.

The US simply refuses to play it.

Screw em. We have youtube now.

yes, and I believe there is a Dirty Harry moviethon coming up..wonder what they will do then.

Sometimes these idiots just don’t think.

While back California was going to ban all cell phones, two way radios, CB’s etc because they were distracting and someone suggested they would also have to require police and fire to pull over to take a call and use the computer.

That bill died on the vine....

It’s going to be like the way they pulled smoking out of films. Although I didn’t see the movie Pearl Harbor one of the scenes was in the officers club - and nobody was smoking. In real life you probably wouldn’t be able to see across the room with all the smoking. Next up will be no drinking scenes.

I certainly hope that those are not the only firearms you own. They are very sub-standard as far as modern combat firearms are concerned. Not the kind of weapons you want to use to defend your family when the SHTF.

so in other words nbc burries their heads i nthe sand, pretends bad guys don’t exist and essentially blames honest citizens who enjoy their RIGHT to bear arms for the tragedy that just took place DESPITE the FACT that hte bad guy did the evil in a GUN FREE ZONE and broke every lw to do so- Yep nbc- let’s not blame the real culprits- let’s just continue blaming honest citizens- let’s not blame the LACK OF enforcement of the 1000’s of gun laws already on the books- but rather try to gin up some assinine ‘gun hungry culture’ and make that the target of your attacks- let’s pull guns out of all law abiding citizen
s hands and make them compeltely defenseless agaisnt hte criminals that you idolize and protect nbc-

Now if they’ll cancel all their shows that pimp abortions, I’ll be impressed. Yeah. Right. That’ll never happen. More children are murdered by Planned Parenthood than have ever been killed by guns.

It isn't hysteria. It's a deliberate ramping up of anti-gun propaanda from the fourth branch of government - the media.

Yes I suppose.

Seems simpler to skip the channel entirely, but holding em to the same set of standards, is likewise a good strategy.

Give ‘em heck for me.

I won’t watch the network.
