    I usually don't have much nice to say about Brian Williams and/or NBC when it comes to their coverage of anything firearm related, but a few minutes ago, about 6pm CST, Williams and NBC Nightly news aired a segment on a school teacher who uses clay shooting and fishing to instill self confidence and encourage good grades in school.

    NBC aired the few minute segment showing inner city kids shooting clays and casting. They gave the teacher a bit of airtime to make his case about how he uses these activities to help the kids pull themselves out of their situation, interviewing some of the kids and their success stories.

    NBC did make the usual the comment about guns and kids, but gave the teacher a real chance to respond and make his case... which he did.

    Overall, a very good piece and unexpected from NBC...

    regards to all,

    Jay

    Quick follow up... if you hit the msnbc.com site, there is a link to the video report from Ron Allen that aired 45 minutes ago...

    Saw the clip and agree it was positive towards the shooting sports. I especially liked how the teacher responded to the critics. " These kids are learning to respect guns."
