After watching the treatment CBS46 gave the Kennesaw story last night, I sent them the following e-mail:
As a long-time viewer of your news program, I am very disappointed in the misleading wording you used in your 8/21/07 11:00PM story on the repeal of the firearms ban in Kennesaw city parks.

First, they did not "pass a law," they repealed an ordinance.

The term "gun lovers" is both inaccurate and derogatory.

"Just about anyone" and "Anyone with a legally owned gun" is incorrect, misleading and not reporting the facts.

The only people allowed to bring firearms into the parks are the same people allowed to bring firearms into McDonalds, Home Depot, banks and on public streets. Those people are citizens carrying a Georgia Firearms License.

Before being issued a GFL, the applicant must pass a GBI background check, be fingerprinted, and clear a medical background check.

Not everyone with a "legally owned gun" possesses a GFL. Not everyone who choses to protect himself and his family is a "gun lover." Only about 2 percent of qualified citizens choose to obtain a GFL.

When you exclude felons, immigrants, minors and people who do not qualify to hold a GFL, the percentage of people allowed to carry a firearm in Kennesaw parks is nowhere near "just about anyone."

Finally, the reference to the sound of gunshots in the park was not only inflammatory, it bordered on yellow journalism.

Mr. Erbach, I hold the news team at CBS46 to a higher standard than this.
I received the following response today:

[quote:rt3wlfr1]Thanks for your note.

I agree with you 100%. I watched the story last night and had the same reaction and thoughts. I will meet with the reporter and the executive producer when they arrive this afternoon. I appreciate the time you took to write. I can learn a lot from our viewers.

I hope you will keep watching.
Maybe the media is getting the idea.[/quote:rt3wlfr1]

Since you have the dialog open, you might want to suggest they do an interest piece on what is required to legally carry a gun in Georgia.

1911, that was an excellent message sent to CBS46. If we could eliminate the "OMG! THAT'S CRAP! YOU DON"T KNOW WHAT UR TALKING ABOUT! YOU ARE IDIOTIS AND IM NEVER GOIG TO WATCH U LIBTARDS AGAIN!!!1111!~" crowd, I think we'd get a slightly improved position with the media.

104 years, eh? :-k *counting... 1, 2, 3... *

Why would anyone need to carry a gun??? Unless of course you may want to shoot someone. I cannot believe people are allowed to carry anywhere other than hunting or a practice range these days.

Are you people on ATTORNEY METH? GA Realist-are you insame? you list two schools-do you want kids to carry guns to school? Oh great thought-I can see some teacher assigning homework on "church" night and the "righteous" kid pulls out his S&W and shoots the teacher. I can see another "church" kid pulling out his Glcok and kiling the english teacher for "dissing" him. Isn't that the penalty for dissing now adays. If you dope heads know anything about Kennesaw, which it appears it does not, you would know that there have been NO reports of people getting mugged, raped, robbed or shot at the Kennesaw Parks because the Park Rangers are ALL OVER the place! It appears that the two attorneys who would vote John Dillinger for Governor, would rather have gun fights at the park than protecting kids from being shot at because their parents can't control themselves at sporting events. Mr. Killingsworth is right. I believe that Parks will be empty because they will be shooting ranges and target practice centers for liberal attorneys who would rather have illegals get rights than to protect children from accidental shootings. the world would be better off with less attorneys and more Common Sense thinking people. Like those that would seal our borders and deport or shoot illegals for breaking and entering-which is a felony. Other than in black areas, have there been any reports of serious crimes at these parks? Use some common sense people! How about we stop shoving religion down people's throats since columbine proved that the two gunkids' parents FORCED them to go to church and were over religious.

Posts lacking self control, attacking others, and projecting their own lack of self control onto others.

Interesting.

:lol:

This guy went off on a rant about religious people, something to do with illegal aliens, but he starts off accusing others of being on meth for disagreeing with him on the guns in parks issue?

:lol:

Even worse, some segments of our government encourage people like this to vote. If there is to be a sanity test to own firearms, there should definitely be a sanity test to vote.

I am not familiar with this product. It's name is ambiguous. Is it made for or from attorneys?
:shakehead:

for attorneys. It is a product made by liberals for attorneys and judges. While on it you think the Bill of Rights is a living breathing document and you get parinoid delusions/halucinations of firearms (that arn't properly locked up) jumping up and shooting innocent people, or using Jedi mind tricks to get people to unlock them and go on rampages.

It's obvious you have not tried any.

GS1, don't forget. Other effects include subjecting everything to a wide variety of "reasonableness" tests that are basically an excuse to rule however the hell they want, regardless of facts, law, or procedure.
