  •  You and I are in absolute agreement: (11+ / 0-)

    When I say "gunners" I am using a lazy template for people with an almost "crazed" obsession with guns, a hatred and suspicion of the federal government's role in regulating guns with responsible laws, the people that share the view of the NRA management.

    And, I am not denigrating "gun owners" generally.  In part b/c I am one.  I own a 20 guage Baretta over/under shotgun for sporting clays and grouse.  I also own a Remington 270 rifle that I previously used to hunt deer for meat (which I genuinely love the taste of venison and it's health benefits) - - alas I just cannot bring myself to shoot deer anymore, which is an uncomfortable position for me b/c I still eat meat - - it's like I rely on someone else to do the harvesting of an animal even though I am happy to benefit from it.  Sometimes I genuinely believe that people that eat meat should have to harvest their own a few times in their life in order to gain some respect for the animal and be less wasteful and more appreciative of one's place in nature.

    Blessed are the peacemakers, the poor, the meek and the sick. Message to Repug Fundies: "DO you really wonder "what would Jesus do?" I didn't think so.
