Don't Shoot Your TV! 

So much for trying to have some levelheaded discourse in this country.

KTVZ ran a piece this week about issues surrounding gun sales and firearm possession in Central Oregon in the wake of the Tucson shootings. The story - which was hardly controversial in its reporting - featured gun owners, a gun club leader, but also the director of Ceasefire Oregon, a gun control advocacy group... and boy did that stir up some fire. The story received more than 60 comments online as of this printing and every single one of them was vehemently against any sort of gun control and, of course, included a request for the reporter to take her "a - -" back to California.
So much for trying to have some levelheaded discourse in this country. Essentially what some of these folks are saying is: How dare someone try to report on something that matters to all of us? WTF?
