    I may change my mind on AR's after hearing this guy. Maybe I need them to protect myself against the law abiding gun nuts.

    alex jones is simply a picture of what all the extreme right wing gun nuts sppear to be to the rest of the country. he is the worst possible image for those of us who want to keep the purchase of guns as free as possible.

    as free as possible, bigdog. much "freer" than you would think. although i can't stand the sound of semi automatics on both sides of me on the rznge, i can move somewhere else. i really don't understand the need for the entire ar rage. but i certainly wouldn't agree with the government's efforts to ban their sales.

    Alex Jones, as intense as he is, isn't one stinking bit different in the direction he goes than the leftist pukes in the media and politics who go left.

    Yeah, unfortunately he got really carried away with his inability to control his presentation. But, if you could overlook that and listen to what he was actually saying, he made some great points particularly re the incredibly high rate of violent crime in piers' great Britain. If Wayne La Pierre had those facts on violent crime rates in other countries particularly after gun control law implimentation, his appearance could have really been impressive.

    This is what happens when you have a so called expert gone awry! He was as bad as the leftist nut on the other end. Never let the left rattle you, especially on TV. He needed to continue to pound on % of increase in violent crime in both Great Britain and Australia vs that of the US. The numbers say it all. Although, murder has dropped in both countries, all other victim crimes ( aggravated assault, robbery, burglary, kidnapping, rape are up, and in Australia it leads the world in % of victim crimes! All Jones did was hurt the cause not help it.

    Unfortunately Alex's entire presentation of himself is to be shocking. Usually the truth is shocking enough. I don't know. Is it possible that Americans need to be shocked to get them to actually focus on the facts? When you consider the volume of shock TV the average American consumes maybe Alex isn't so shocking after all.

    Where he really became irrelevant, was when he started the personal attacks. That in itself made anyone that was watching, think this guy is just another gun crazed lunatic. At least LaPierre is calm and gathered in his thoughts. Even though he may have been a little off in his presentation.
