    He did a good job of calling him on his BS right from the start. That anchor clearly did not want to play fair, and his interviewee came mentally prepared. Good job.

    Yeah, that anchor got smacked down good. He tried switching words around and then tried the old bait and switch and got caught in his own trap.

    The pro-gun guy was very intelligent and well-prepared and the anchor was not (in fact, he was very typical of gun opponents in his lack of knowledge). That is a bright spot among higher profile black marks like Alex Jones and James Yeager.

    At 3:20, the guest made a huge error. He agreed with the incorrect statement that fully automatic rifles have been used in recent mass murders. He let the journalist persist with the misunderstanding that "assault weapons" are automatic.

    The ignorance of that journalist was astounding. I'm starting to think the more they know about guns the better off we will be in this debate.

    Next time this sort of question arises of why we need "assault weapons", we better ask them first if they can define "assault weapon".

    ......AND, if they think police should be banned from having them, too. That is, since the police have the same issues dealing with the criminal element as a private citizen does.

    Good video but I wish he had better defined the terms. We all know that AR-15s are not assault weapons, the media loves that term because it incites fear in the unknowing.

    I'm almost surprised the talking head didn't shut the interview off when he must have realized that he was being made out to be a fool.

    I think a huge majority of non gun owners and a disturbing number of gun owners think AR-15s ARE assault weapons and think they're fully automatic. Sad but I think true. Don

    The common misconceptions that people uneducated about firearms amazes me. I married into a family that knew nothing about guns and were not gun owners that bought into the common misconceptions.

    After introducing them to shooting they really enjoyed it and now own several guns including an AR15 and semi-auto handguns and strongly support the 2A.

    Amazing what a little education can do.

    Wow, that was fun to watch. And I'm also a member of the WVCDL, so I'm very proud of Keith for giving the commentator a real beat-down.

    I also caught that comment and I'm sure that the guest didn't catch it because at another point he corrected him on the auto/semi auto weapon.
