Firearms News Gets Unexpected Plug from Tom Brokaw on 'Meet the Press'

Firearms News got a plug Sunday in an unexpected venue: NBC's Meet the Press. Longtime NBC correspondent Tom Brokaw surprised fellow panelists by announcing he takes the magazine and gave a pretty accurate description of its contents. Sadly, his discourse was interrupted by a commercial break and was not taken up after the commercial. I had heard over the years that South Dakotan Brokaw was a closet gun guy, and there's no better proof of your gun guy status than an FAN subscription. I'll take plug anywhere and anytime I can get one, so thanks, Tom Brokaw!
