Responsible Gun Owner Tag

Freeze sent me these pictures way back during the summer. I just simply forgot about them. But as someone who lived through the bad old days of the 86 Hughes Amendment, the Import Ban, 922r, and the Assault Weapons Ban; stuff like this warms my heart.

Back in the 80’s and 90’s as a gun owner and advocate, I felt like I was fighting a uphill battle with not support from the general public or the mainstream media. And as much as many like to criticize Millennials, I have to admit something straight-up:

Responsible gun owner tag.

Responsible gun owner tag.

They have fought numerous wars for our country against a threat no less dangerous than Fascism and Communism. But on the home front, they have they chosen to become more educated about our Constitutional rights.

I have the demographic data since we run a very popular firearms website. The numbers don’t lie. The majority of our readers aren’t 80 year old, white male, bitter-clingers. Well over 80% are under the age of 40. And a plurality of them are…not…white.

I know the media and the costal elites like to dismiss this kind of analysis since it doesn’t fit into their world view. But look at what happened to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. Look what happened to the 2-faced Republicans who pay lip-service to the Constitution and yet continue to erode our individual rights.

Someone os tagging 20's with pro-gun messages.

As I wrap this up, I know some of my DC Beltway buddies will read this post and either roll their eyes or dismiss all the examples I cite as blips, outliers, or statistical anomalies. Uh huh. Keep telling yourself a Barry Goldwater, white conservative is going around tagging 20’s with pro-second Amendment messages.

Paul Krugman and Karl Rove don’t believe what’s about to hit them.

    I’ve seen this anomaly myself at the ranges. The majority aren’t old farts, they are young people in all the colors of the rainbow. Men and women who wish to be the best type of responsible gun owners. The range I use is VERY strict with safety measures and I have yet to see anyone tossed for breaking the rules. Responsible gun owners are what is going to change the way America views Guns, and our Natural Rights as guaranteed in the Constitution.

    • Yup.

        I belong to a private outdoor range that covers eveything from trap shooting to cowboy action and it is a huge range. This year we finally had to stop taking new members we were getting too overloaded. We had to create 8 new pistol bays just so the wait on the weekends would be shorter. We have every kind of person at every age. Is truly great thing to see.
