<p>World News reporter David Muir on Wednesday night aggressively pushed gun control with a recycled, one-sided report on the ease of buying weapons. Muir also failed to identify Omar Samaha, featured prominently in the segment, as the grassroots coordinator for Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. Muir replayed a four-year-old segment of Samaha going to a gun show to purchase weapons from private sellers. The journalist identified Omar Samaha only as someone who lost his sister at the Virginia Tech massacre. He didn't inform viewers that Samaha is employed professionally &nbsp;with a gun control organization and has worked with Michael Bloomberg to restrict the Second Amendment.</p><p>Video cross-posted at <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/scott-whitlock/2013/04/11/abc-hypes-gun-co…;
