CBS (60 minutes) is covering the National Reciprocity Bill this Sunday - Might be worth a look to see how they'll approach it. I'm sure we'll probably know how they will, but it will be interesting to see nonetheless...

CBS and 60 minutes sacrificed news reporting for propaganda a long time ago.
Remember the Dan Rather embarrassment?
The program might still be worth watching, just to see how the subject is treated for future reference.
Thanks for the tip.

Precisely why I posted it. We need to keep tabs on what they're feeding the Sheeples so we can counter it... _:

OK, I just finished watching. It was their usual slick job of "attempting" to seem "fair & balanced," but it was clear by the content, order of speakers, and the imagery (scenes of people in gun stores, of kids shooting guns, etc. etc.), that they were painting an anti-gun mindset picture. There were only two pro-2A reps - a congressman from North Carolina and the Pres. of USCCA. There were, maybe 3 times as many anti-reps including NY DA Cyrus Vance, NYC police commissioner, The Milwaukee Police chief, a rep from the Giffords institute (who tried to convince us that 2A does not guarantee a right to concealed carry... that 2A is only valid for home defense). In short, while they acknowledged that guns are part of the culture "in the rural parts of the country," they are condemned in major cities like NY, LA, Tuscon, Seattle, Milwaukee, etc. etc., DA Vance's position is that Feds shouldn't tell anti states / cities what to do...

The USCCA guy did his best, but I think they manipulated his answers a bit, as they did with the NC congressman. They stated that they invited Wayne La Pierre on the segment but that he refused. Instead they showed a clip of his speech after the 2016 election imploring Pres. Elect Trump to enact National reciprocity. Oddly enough, they also mentioned the case of Shaneen Allen and plastered her picture (and a profile of Evan Nappen, her atty), stating that if it weren't for Chris Christie pardoning her, she would have faced 10 years in prison (while not mentioning that before Christie pardoned her, she had gotten PTI only after Evan Nappen exposed the DA as being the same one who granted PTI to Ray Rice for a domestic violence charge.... Hmmmmmm......

Yeah... the message was slick and, while they didn't conclude anything directly, it was clear that they were suggesting that National Reciprocity is a bad thing for the big cities (where the 60 min. primary constituency lives), and thus bad for all.

The "Communist Bullshit Spreaders" my dad used to call them.

OK, not clever but accurate.

He's gone, they're still here. RIP, dad. Rot in hell, CBS.

I just watched the entire thing and the 60 minutes overtime program.

It's got all the usual anti stuff.
One thing struck me. Nobody really commented on it.

The MAP!!!!!!

It's virtually all red with pro gun policies. The outliers are the blue states and cities in a small minority.

The talking heads really do think that everyone must agree with them.
In their minds how could anyone not think as they do.
That's all that makes sense to them.
Everyone in their small world does.
So it's unfathomable that anyone would possibly think otherwise.
They really have no clue, do they?

I watched it.Not too much surprise as to how it was presented. I'm not sure how much good it did for the cause, but I think we all knew what to expect It's politics that's how you play the game.
