Gun TV: Home Shopping Channel Aims to Sell Weapons to Viewers

From The Guardian:

A new home shopping channel will launch in the US early in 2016. It will be called, simply, Gun TV.

TV home shopping is synonymous with flashy jewelry, home décor and bargain accessories you never knew you needed. But Gun TV’s specialty will be exactly that: guns. It will also sell ammunition, accessories such as concealed-carry holsters and clothing, such as hunting jackets.

Like established channels such as QVC and Home Shopping Network, Gun TV will feature personable experts explaining and demonstrating the channel’s wares. If viewers see a weapon at a price they like, they can just click online, or pick up the phone and dial a toll-free number.

Trump Wants CNN to Pay Him $5 Million For Appearing in Their Debate

My reactions to everything Trump related so far vary from bemusement at his level of trollage, to horror that said trollage just seems to help him in the polls. Chalk this one in the bemusement column because you know when CNN doesn’t pay him, Trump will turn it around and claim that the liberal press hates veterans.

In a chilly arena that was transformed from an ice rink into an event space by laying down plastic tiles to cover the rink floor, the businessman put a price on his participation at the coming CNN Republican debate: $5 million.

“How about I tell CNN, who doesn’t treat me properly … I’m not gonna do the next debate, okay?” The demand garnered tepid applause from the crowd.

Trump zeroed in more on his idea: “I won’t do the debate unless they pay me $5 million, all of which goes to Wounded Warriors or goes to vets.”

That was something the crowd could get behind, and an idea Trump has floated once before.

“The problem is they’ll say ‘Trump is chicken,'” he said. “One thing I’m not is chicken, okay?”
