ABC is defending its decision to edit out an apparently erroneous claim by Michelle Obama in its broadcast of the first lady’s interview on Good Morning America today, saying it made the changes “solely” for the sake of time.
As The Washington Examiner reported this morning, the first lady claimed during an interview with Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts that 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton, who was killed in Chicago shortly after performing during the President’s Inauguration, was shot because “some kids had some automatic weapons they didn’t need.”
In fact, Chicago Police reported Pendleton was shot by a man who “opened fire with a handgun before fleeing in a waiting car,” according to the Associated Press.

Semi automatic = the black cloud at death. Automatic is close to a nuclear weapon, right!?!? That is nothing a child should have access to - I cannot believe that they are not already banned !!

Why should she be expected to know anymore than her husband?

Michelle Obama is the anti-Sarah Palin. She's such a b**ch. Just watch her body language during any significant American event. Bored, rolling eyes, general "holier than thou" attitude.

She's the quintessential sasquatch. Makes bile press up against the back of my tonsils every time I hear that whiny, Chitcago accent.

Time to rein in the attitudes guys - no member bashing or p***-posting contests. If ya can't get along this will not end well.

I try very hard to get along with everyone. However, I also found the original comment a bit inane....

When it was clear someone did not understand the comment the response I would expect would be to explain it. I guess in these times attacking the person that did not understand is the way things are getting to be.

the answering comment was rude particularly if the poster did not know the person he was directing it too.

Defending the rude comment because the poster was only trying to have fun and saying that other forums have comments that are much worse is also not the correct response. On those other forums, if someone had originally takien offense at rude comments the behavior there may not have degenerated into behavior that forces a lot of people to leave those forums.

"well really if she has a gun anybody with good background should be able too!!!! "

Sorry, but I, as well, missed the meaning of this comment. Before some mentally-challenged poster mentions alcohol consumption, perhaps they'd be so kind as to explain it? Especially in light of the fact that the person making the post, and the one making the fourth-grade comment were NOT one and the same.

This forum prides itself on it's decorum. Nobody here really cares how rude Sniper's Hide, or ARF.com, or even Glock Talk, is. If references to them are required for comparison, then the comment needs to be reformatted.

We have enough examples of MSM and politician created insults bombarding us to need it from members.
