    So lame to hear Discovery cancelled American Guns. Its not insensitive to show a family’s journey of owning a Mom-Pop gun store. Removing the show, heck removing every show on TV that has a gun in it, doesnt change the fact that there are 250 million guns in the US, and more gun stores than Starbucks. Also, its okay for scripted shows to be on that have murdering with guns (NCIS, H50 etc) but a reality show about a family running a store is somehow taboo? Would Showtime cancel Homeland if there was a terrorist attack? It just comes off as a playing it safe, weak move. Does this mean “Sons of Guns” is also cancelled? It being a gun store show on the same network?

    Excited to hear Fillion is hosting anything, hes amazing. Is it televised? Hope so. I’d be happy with Fillion hosting 50% of the gigs and Mchale hosting the other 50% year round.

    so we can expect, with the cancellation of American Guns, that violence in America will immediately drop by at least 65%, right?
