On Yeager: It's a shame a person with such passion for a cause can do so much harm with it !

I watched part of it....liberal slant so I turned the channel. I don't need to waste my time watching their garbage on a garbage channel.

That had to be the high point of the entire show. We know those facts but their are probably many who don't and if it causes them to question what they have been told by the Anti crowd,then if for that alone the report was a help. SJ 40

It was worth watching but you can feel the anti-tone throughout

I thought it was much more fair and balanced than I was expecting. I really enjoyed it but I agree Yeager is not the guy we want representing us.

Yes,.....the reporter was trying to push the dentist into a lot of statements.

The biggest question, to me, is why is so much time and money spent by the government on objecting to this rifle when it accounts for a fraction of 4% of homicides in the United States.

If that doesn't indicate a hidden agenda, then someone needs to open their eyes.

Even the show said that "blunt objects" are far more offensive than the AR15.

Beware of the politicians. They have something they're hiding and when it comes out, it may be too late.

Yep I watched it and that Dr. obviously never seen what a 12 ga slug will do to a person at close range! Any firearm at close range will do alot of damge! A majority of it was anti-gun BS! I loved how they trotted out the "Former NRA guy" In other words - an anti gun plant! Unfortunately there's alot of them in the NRA!

Given the hang up with cosmetic features and scary-looking, perhaps any proposed ban should exempt Hello Kitty, pink and purple ARs. Surely no evil could come from those.

I wasn't in the Marines, but in the Army we were indoctrinated to call the M16 a weapon. The nomenclature maybe Rifle, U.S., M16/M16A1/M16A2, but most everybody called it a weapon, as were the machine guns, submachine guns, pistols, bayonets, LAW, etc.

I watched this with my wife and right in the middle she said, you should get one! (I've been wanting one for months, just didn't want to lay down the money). Went and bought one the next day.

God bless america where I can walk into my local gun store and in fifteen minutes find exactly what I want and walk back out with it.

For those that thought the reporter / journalist was biased... I think most of his questions were a matter of playing "Devil's Advocate." Check out the post-production interview of the reporter (and what he says he learned).

Worth watching:

I did not get to see it yet. Did not want to stay up until 2 am to catch it.

Too bad Yeager was in it. I could have named a LOT of other people on YT that would have been better suited.
