Discovery cancels 'American Guns'
Network says move not in response to recent events, sparks online debate
I used to like Discovery Channel but after this stupid decision i will never watch Discovery Channel again,
American Guns is a great show that showed the right way to handle fireams
The people that is doing these terrible acts are the problem not the guns, and making a ban on guns will not do anything but keep them out of the hands of responsible people that can use them to protect their family and themselves and also maybe even protect one of the stupid people out there that thinks guns are bad.
If guns were banned it isnt going to keep criminals from having them it will make the crimes worse because they criminals will know that they are the only one with guns, and the black market will rise higher and higher.
I can not believe that people are so stupid to think banning guns or taking great shows like American guns off the air will do anything to stop the crimes.
If the government really cared about these crimes they will look at how all these shooters are on mental drugs and have been in a mental hospital, maybe they should look at the drug companies for making those drugs, but i believe anyway that the Government has put on all these shootings just so they can get their gun control, its funny that a mental person decides to go on a shooting but instead of just going anywhere, they end up somewhere that they dont allow guns, ( Schools, Malls etc) a trully mental person would not have the thought of going to a place that didnt allow guns they would go to the first place they came to, i believe these so called mental people were put in these places by the Government to get their gun control and killed at the end to keep them quiet, because what one be the one thing that would make people go along with gun control, kids being hurt.
I know i got away from the subject a little and i'm sorry but this stuff really tears me up.
I sorry American Guns, you were great and i hope another network that is smarter than Decovery Channel picks up your show so you can keep informing people about firearms and gun safety.
Discovery Channel, You need a history lesson, maybe you should watch the History Channel
Discovery is (WAS!!!) one of my favorite channels. I will no longer watch or support Discovery and I'm sure millions feel the same way. Sorry American Guns and the rest of the shows on Discovery because your ratings will most likely also decline because of this. To all the supporters of this, remember this... "If guns kill people, then pencils misspell words, cars make people drive drunk, and spoons make you fat".
Feel horrible for the families of this tragedy. But, what's next? We should ban automobiles also since they kill people. Maybe cancel all shows with cars in them. Sorry American Guns.
The argument always seems to be constitutional rights as the defining justification for guns and gun ownership. The anti-gun side vehemently states that guns kill, while the gun-fans insist it is the sick-oh's doing the killing.
Maybe someone needs to weigh "I'm allowed" versus "I should". There can hardly be an argument against more killings being the result of easy-to-access and more available fire arms. All people are unfortunately not always rational and then the question arises: what take precedence - individual rights or society's rights? Is society free because "I" am free or am "I" free because society is free?
Not an easy subject. I will however, add that numerous modern "western" countries control fire arms of all descriptions in order to protect society, without prohibiting ownership. It is simply tightly controlled. For the common good of everyone, it would seem that as American gun violence is increasing, the time has come to seriously reevaluate gun ownership/usage in this country.
Removing a popular show that certainly is anything but radical but unquestionably celebrates the gun culture may "harm" some but is likely to benefit a far greater number.
