ABC’s ‘Nightline’ Takes Aim at Glock Handguns

glock-ad

On March 22 ABC’s Nightline did a segment focused on how Glock handguns are the scourge of the anti-gun world.

Before the segment started, anchors teased it as being framed around America’s love for the Glock. But once it began, they criticized the way Glock advertises it pistols and the way Glock refurbishes and sells used pistols. Throughout the segment, every time legal uses of a Glock were highlighted, the anchor made sure to point out facts like “Congressman Gabby Giffords was shot by a Glock in Tuscon,” and “Adam Lanza carried a Glock into Sandy Hook Elementary.”

The segment opened by showing a Glock commercial where a girl, living alone, pulls a Glock 9mm to defend her life as an attacker tries to get through her door. In the commercial, the attacker comes through the door only to freeze in fear when he sees the woman standing there with a Glock pointed at him.
