#7157478 - 05/02/18 07:54 AM DFW news station - Channel 8 at 10pm - story about a mother of 4 “freaked out” over the AR15. They’re taking her hog hunting

Just heard a advertisement spot on the radio for a news story tonight, the gist of it is:

Controversy over the AR15 being a weapon serving any real purpose to the general public

In an attempt to form an “educated decision” on the AR15 they’ve selected a Pro Gun Rights Mother of four children who is admittedly “freaked out by the AR15”.

The news station is going to take her to the gun range to shoot and become familiar with the rifle and then they’re going hog hunting because “hog hunting is the most important use of the weapon says people they talked to”



Allison wore a Keller Independent School District Hoodie on the hog hunt BUT cried at the thought of an active shooter situation at her child's school........... I graduated from the original Keller High School and in my senior year they installed metal detectors at the main entry that was over 20 years ago and there have been no shootings at KISD in that time. Just Sayin'

Well, the premise sounds rather stupid. If she is no longer 'freaked out' after hunting, anti gun people will simply see it as a faux news story because the woman was already pro gun and little or no real convincing was needed. If she is still freaked out after hunting, pro gun people will see it as a faux news story because the woman really wasn't pro gun in the first place and will claim she is really an anti gunner used by the biased liberal media to demonize guns.

Either way, her credibility will be called into question as will the motivation of the media.

Then someone will suggest wanting to humanely relocate the hogs they shoot at.

Well, it was okay, until old Jeb the guide got them in the woods and gave them poor (unsafe) instructions on how to shoot hogs.

Just watched it. She needs practice. Got one hog. He said just keep pulling the trigger...

They verified there are legitimate uses of the AR-15... duh.

I always laugh at the "there is no legitimate purpose for the AR-15" argument.

So many self centered flaws in that argument. I wish the news would have interviewed a more articulate "shooter" in this story as the guy they did interview wasn't as articulate sounding (maybe it was edited out?) as I have heard others on this question. It is hard being in front of a mic with little to no prep. And again, editing can make anyone sound like a fool.


And yes, she needs practice and they should get a news guy that has been around guns before to do such a story....did you see his reaction at the first shot in the range "oh wow thats loud" roflmao

I humanely relocate most of the hogs I shoot at. Most of them wind up in a pile in my NW corner, but occasionally one makes it to my freezer. The very occasional one relocates himself at a high rate of speed.

Not seen vid. Safety should always be first, when irradicating hogs. confused2 from what reading, should have had an NRA member guiding.

2cents post a thread of hog hunt with AR vs muzzleloader, see wich gets more hits.

welcome ta age of 2000, were faster tis better. 2003 lost me job ta high-tech meter reader, it was faster. Yet, we stayed caught up, did more than just read meters, & then went helped in other departments. We had NO say.
