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.

Throughout the commercial, the Nightline anchor interrupted to interject statements like: “In the real world, one study found that women living with a gun are almost 3 times more likely to be shot to death.”

Did Nightline stop to think about how sexist this claim was before they made it? The implication is that women either don’t know how or aren’t even capable of handling a gun.

After this, Nightline whined about how Glock had found a legal way around the first “high capacity” magazine ban associated with the 1994 “assault weapons” ban. That ban allowed anything that had already been manufactured before the ban to be sold and Glock had wisely stockpiled a large amount of product that they were able to continue moving to customers legally.
