Melody Zullinger of Pennsylvania Federation of Sportsmans Clubs debates Bryan Miller of CeaseFire
New Jersey Pennsylvania debate new gun control in Pennsylvania (mp3 podcast) on NPR here in Philadelphia. I have to say, I don’t think Melody made a very good case for our cause. In fact, I think Bryan Miller mopped the floor with her. We have to be better prepared for this kind of thing.
Bryan seems to be big on this “personal privilege” thing. Owning a gun is not a privilege. It’s a constitutional right. Both under the federal and Pennsylvania constitutions. Melody had ample opportunity to turn the tables on Miller, and she dropped the ball every time.
UPDATE: Melody in the comments says:
I wonâ€™t deny that I was in way over my head with Miller and Iâ€™m sorry I left our side down. When I agreed to be on the program, I had no idea Iâ€™d be on with Miller or that it was to be a debate. If I had known so, I would have turned down the offer and tried to find someone else who is a good debater to represent firearm owners.
No hard feelings.Â It all worked out the way we wanted in the end.
