ABC

Is this the same network that announced that it would not cover or report any of the shooting events in the Olympics because doing so would give people the impression that guns have some legitimate uses in civilian hands, which would undercut their official ABC News position that all guns should be banned except for the police and military?

i love the shooting events. my father, son and i went
to all the shooting events when the games were in
atlanta. we are trap shooters from way back.
my dad was pres. of the ga. ata in 1976.
they had the international trap fields open to
the public after the games left.
the fulton county gooberment closed it down
to make a training center for fire and p.d.
some gooberment official (illeagly) sold off all
the international trap machines on ebay.
the most he got for one of them was $2500.00
the tax payers of atlanta and georgia paid
$30,000.00 each, there was nine of them

ABC on Olympic Shooting

Yes, I read a short article about this in the newspaper and the NRA, I think, had a longer article or editorial about this in their AMERICAN RIFLEMAN magazine. This was several years ago-- maybe even just prior to the 1984 Games in Los Angeles. I believe the network was ABC.

Of course this press release from ABC could simply have been some anti-gun propaganda, intended to encourage others to shun the shooting sports and pretend that there is no such thing as a legitimate use of a civilian-owned gun. It could well be that the REAL REASON that ABC didn't cover the shooting events was because, well, watching people shoot slowly and precisely is not exactly a thrilling event for spectators. Fun to DO, yes, but not fun to WATCH.
