Rob Pincus on NPR.

More specifically NPR. He was featured on NPR and I must say this half hour of radio mad e a heck of a fair statement regarding firearms and their use in personal defense.

Here is the link. http://www.npr.org/2013/02/05/171173...-the-aftermath

Under discussion already in T&T here:

Suggest mods decide if it makes more sense in T&T or GD, and merge.

Here's my thoughts on the show and why it is important to "cross the lines" to win the middle... Thanks for sharing and for listening:

Didnt want to take over another thread

Gents feel free to do with this as you please.

ETA Rob I too have listened to NPR and have found alot of firearms coverage to be highly biased. To their credit this was fair. The whole show was I listened to the whole half hour. I am with you here and I find myself bridging the gap to the middle grounders quite a bit.

The NPR show wasn't the Dark Side, but the clip from the Elk Mountain Resort absolutely was a trip into the Dark Side!
Rob, there wasn't anything funny in that clip! I will concede that what you went through in the filming was no dought fun and all but what was shown after editing was pathetic!
You are spot on with the reaching the middle ground folks, we strive for that in Youth Hunter Education.
