Dave Mack fell in love with radio at an early age, and after 30 years the affair continues. His radio career has taken him to some great cities but his home has been in Alabama since 1994. Dave was introduced to Alabama in a unique way while attending church at Goshen United Methodist Church on Palm Sunday 1994 when a tornado hit the church killing more than 20 and injuring many more, including Dave. Having an up close and personal experience with Severe weather, Dave has provided long form severe weather coverage on several stations and is involved with public speaking about severe weather preparedness. Dave Mack has lived a unique life that includes stand up comedy as well as hosting his own regional television show, and most recently added "Feature Film Actor" to his resume having co-starred in the feature film "Prodigal". Dave is scheduled to star in two additional feature films in 2012. Dave and his wife LaDonna (a lifelong Alabama resident) have 4 children and multiple pets including Dave's special friend....his chihuahua "Tanner".
Following the terrifying events in Newtown, Conn., that left 26 people dead — including 20 children — the nation has turned its attention to the topic of guns and gun control.
Considering the fact that Adam Lanza’s murderous rampage occurred just five months after James Holmes stormed a theater in Aurora, Colo., shooting 70 people and killing 12, it seems that the nation, to a certain degree, is determined to speak more frankly about guns and gun-related violence and debate what should be done.
However, this is where we get into an odd area.
It appears that the gun control debate is being dominated by bad information and that the chance for thoughtful and meaningful dialogue — let alone solutions — is being lost.
For instance, in what appears to be an attempt by one side to push for stricter gun laws, there is a wealth of misinformation out there regarding semi-automatic rifles. One side argues semi-auto rifles are the real root of the problem, the other side would like a focus on safety and mental health.
