ALERTER'S COMMENTS

Please hide this post. NRA propaganda doesn't belong on DU.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Fri Jan 1, 2016, 06:59 AM, and the Jury voted 2-5 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to HIDE IT

Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE

Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE

Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: NRA propaganda doesn't need to be on DU.
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: It is a "good" video in the sense that it is well scripted, well acted, well produced. But -and I did watch the entire lengthy video - it is basically a psy-ops effort to persuade people that the second amendment demands unfettered access to even battlefield level weapons, with no required training, licensing, regulating or oversight. One section of it, where the actor fires an AK-47, dashes to a new location, fires another weapon, etc. etc. looks like a training film for ISIS. All that said, DU owners have never seen fit to ban a debate on guns, or even taken an official position on the subject (as they have in endorsing HRC at the beginning of the Democratic primary). So that makes it a tough choice on whether to hide this post or not. The video is totally one-sided. Some might argue that such a bias can be addressed in a thread discussing the video. So, on balance, I will vote to leave it. I think it provides a good base for discussion and for refuting the NRA.

Thank you very much for participating in our Jury system, and we hope you will be able to participate again in the future.
