Somehow I Manage Not To Be Horrified
Bill Quick

At The NRA Meeting: Come For The Guns, Stay For The Camaraderie : NPR

I suspect this story is written on the premise that it will horrify National Public Radio readers (most of whom I presume the author believes will wet their panties at the mere mention of the word “gun”), and yet I found the report oddly comforting.

This NRA conclave was held in my birth state, and the people described are the sort of people I grew up with.  I may not agree with everything they believe – I did leave Indiana, after all – but I understand them, and for the most part like them.

I doubt that NPR understands there are millions of folks in America who will feel the same way when they read this story.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
