It was kind of a sad knock off of "Sons of Guns," anyway.

Now how about their crappy "reality" shows that aren't about guns?
 
2012-12-17 05:29:24 PM
I find these shows incredibly boring. I think the angle is "chicks with guns" for dudes who are into that kind of thing.

This. And I got kinda sick of SoG this past season. The overly dramatic music and camera work they did before every (it seemed) pull of the trigger (and then... COMMERCIAL!) got old.

Now Top Shot I dig. I hope they bring that one back. It's refreshing to see a reality show that's an ACTUAL competition. No judges needed.

Good riddence. I won't lie that I saw this show a couple of times though. I remember a episode where a couple goes into the store to buy a pair of him/her handguns. The guy loved guns but the girl had supposedly never touched a gun in her life and was scared of them. They decide to take her to the range to "familiarize" her with firearms. Needless to say, she nails every single shot and magically becomes a master marksman and gunsmith over night. That's "reality" tv for you right there.

Either way it would be nice if the media would stop calling the AR-15 an assault rifle.

That should even it out.

I watched it a couple times when it first came on. Father is a gigantic douche, mom and daughter are interchangeable attention whores, the son was the only likable one. No loss at all with this cancellation.

It's a toy. Something people dress up and buy all sorts of accessories for. Just because it can put a hole in something it's regarded as a dangerous object.

It's similar to hot rodding. There's the core functionality and the rest is stylin'.

Yup, a pink gun and one practice session with elaborate sets for a shooting range will convert ANY woman who is squeamish about guns into a master marksman instantly. I grew up in the south in a hunting family. I've shot lots of guns (on my grandfather's property of 100 acres at trees). I've never been THAT accurate. I also didn't get an orgasmic thrill out of it like that chick did. I call shenanigans. I'm not sad to see that show go, though. Any show that portrays gun ownership like owning an expensive toy should be canceled imo.

It's been pretty clear since the end of the first season that SoG has been more about the cameras than the business. I used to really enjoy watching the really smart guys engineer solutions to tricky requests. Now I can't stand that show.

The show was just pre-scripted gun porn, but the blonde chick was pretty hot. I watched it like 3 times, it was pretty "meh".

Because you don't understand anything about the shock and outrage associated with a mass shooting versus an individual car accident not to mention the evil intent to kill people with guns versus the unintended consequences and lack of intent with a drunk driving accident?

//not saying we shouldn't do more to curtail alcohol-related deaths, but you have to understand group psychology, bro.

No argument here. But I'm actually interested in pragmatic measures to reduce the violence. Trifling over nomenclature is just good fun but it doesn't do shiat to address the problem. Reduce the incidents? Go after the intent and motivation, not the tool, especially one enshrined in our culture and defended by multi-millions of dollars by a heartless lobbying group.

Go after:

1) The Drug Trade
2) Mental Health Care
3) The Glorification of Gun Culture
4) Sensationalization of these crimes in the media

No easy solutions to fix any of those, but if you chip away at any of those issues, you'll see a reduction.

Ohh. Maybe that's the problem.

True. It's not like the mere act of being shot is "assaulting" in any way. You got do it with a frowny face or a ragey face. If you're grinning like the Extenze Smilin' Bob guy when you shoot me, it's really just kind of a slapstick "Oh, did I do that?!?! -Urkel" kind of comedy.

Legalize ALL guns based on a meritocracy. Every class of weapon is forbidden to the 0th level citizen, even metal steak knives. As you age, training and classes and a clean record allow you to apply for higher licenses. Eventually, you could even work your way up to Tactical Nuke, although sale would be prohibited as per usual.

This way, we could eliminate a large part of the anti-gun crowd's objections and piss off any psychotic executives who wormed their way up the corporate ladder but fail the psych profile for metal cutlery. "Would sir like his steak pre-cut or will sir be using his hands?"

Take one home and put it on your dining room table, and wait and see how long it takes until it starts shooting you. After it sits there long enough and you finally realize it isn't going to shoot you, maybe you will start to think about addressing the real causes of the shootings that happen.

Because they are totally unnecessary accessories for people who feel inadequate.

A gun is a machine that is used to kill. Now why would anyone want such a machine unless they were aimin' to do themselves some killin'?

Self Defense? When was the last time any of you gun fetishists ever defended yourself or anyone else with your killing machine?

In case of foreign attack? Your gun is equally useless against ICBMs and 767s.

Guns are for psychos and knobs.
