So we’ve been watching World of Weapons on the Smithsonian channel for several weeks now. Kinda interesting. They go into various weapons of all types throughout history.
Last night’s episode covered slings and the damage a rock or lead projectile can do. They segued that somehow into the Colt Walker revolver. And quickly improvements to modern guns.
Then it all went south. The narrated rant dipped into America’s obsession with guns, our ridiculous Second Amendment Rights and the fact that the NRA controls politicians to oppose any gun control measures even in the face of rising gun violence and mass shooting.
For gods sake it’s a show about weapons. It was pretty good up till that point. So I’m done with that show and anything else Smithsonian Channel.
Thankfully I refrained from shooting my TV. Don’t shoot the messenger, right?
