The Second Amendment Club from the University of Utah will appear on CNN's Paula Zahn NOW Monday, April 23th at 8ET, 5PT. The State Supreme Court of Utah has upheld the rights of students to carry on college campuses in Utah. Our friends at the Univ. of Utah will show the world that fears of students carrying on campus are unfounded and students in many states already carry responsibly on their campuses every day.

Worthless all around. Paula Zahn sucked. Our gal from Luby's really didn't do that well either. I loved how they showed the guys from college in Utah with their EBR's at the range. At least they were nice enough to throw in a handicapped gentleman to make it look as if they were being fair for those who carry for self-defense.

The anti-gunner at the end got the last word, of course... and threw out the same crappy made up, baseless statistics... "More people die due to firearms in states with relaxed gun laws than do in those with strict gun control"

I hate CNN!

Runs for remote.

That was the quote I loved. If that quote is true, then why are the murder by gn rates so high in NYC and Washington DC?

Well that could technically be true, just depends on how loosely you interpret it. Like a math problem...
if children = 18-21 year olds
then states with relaxed gun laws = the total of all gun related deaths (including suicide) for 40 (+ or - 2) states.
And states with strict gun control = the total of all gun related deaths (including suicide) for 10 (+ or - 2) states.
So.. the total of all gun related deaths (including suicide) for 40 (+ or - 2) states is greater than the total of all gun related deaths (including suicide) for 10 (+ or - 2) states.

I can get you any results you like, as long as it is phrased a certain way.

Notice that all it was is a soundbite, it sounds good but is vauge and misleading.

Glenn Beck is the only thing keeping me from agreeing with you.

Already had it in hand (surprised my thumb did not hit the button while watching... it has done it before).

It is very unwise for a person or group to do an interview like this on an "anti" network. The network decides how to spin the interview, who gets to speak, and especially who gets to speak last. In the end, you can end up hurting your position more than helping it if you are not careful.

But that is just my opinion.
