When I talk to people who "don't like guns" or those who have little or no experience (and that's most of my neighbors and damn near every white collar person I work with) the picture and image they have of gun owners is way, way off base...... or is it? There are probably 10 or more gun shows in this area a year; I don't go to any of them. Why? Because they're full of the dirty, ignorant, smelly mouth breathers that the anti-gun crowd make us all out to be. The customers at the local gun shops don't look like that; I don't see those people at the shooting ranges... but yet the gun shows are full of guys in camo clothing looking at black guns and SWAT wannabe stuff. Christ almighty, I've been a "gun nut" all my life and I can't stand being around that crowd or associating with them in any way - but when you start talking to non gun folks, that's what they think all of us are like. That's their perception of us; no wonder they think like they do. You Tube videos of drunken idiots blasting away don't help and hell, half the advertising in gun magazines is all about looking like some black clad Swat guy kicking in doors. But,hey we're not really that way folks, really...... or are we?
