    Did anyone else see that the History Channel is cancelling American Guns and Sons of Guns in the “Wake of the Sandy Hook tragedy?” Guess I don’t see the connection, but can see never watching another show on that channel.

    Months before the shooting ever happened I remember Kurt Wyatt making a post(I think on Twitter) that they had just finished recording the last episode of the show, so something else caused the show to be ended.

      There will not be a third season of Discovery‘s docu reality series American Guns. The show, about a family of gun makers, has been drawing attention following Friday’s elementary school shooting in a Connecticut in which 26 people — including 20 first-grade children — were gunned down by a 20-year-old whose mom was a gun collector. There have been angry messages posted by viewers on the show’s Facebook page. American Guns has now been cancelled. Discovery sources say the decision was quietly made awhile ago, however it didn’t come to light until today. “American Guns concluded earlier this year,” a spokesperson said. “Discovery Channel chose not to renew the series and has no plans to air repeats of the show.” The fact that the network is not even keeping repeats of the show on the air indicate that the Connecticut tragedy may have played at least some part in the decision. –

        Oh, gotcha. I didn't realize that you meant they will no longer air ANY of the shows. I thought you just meant they will no longer show new episodes.
        -I'm with you though. I do not think I will be watching much of the History channel anymore(I don't watch much TV to start with though).

          I don't get History Channel anyway, so I'm not supporting their questionable business decisions.
