Skip to comments.Paul Begala: Me and a Gun; Why most gun owners support tougher controls (Blech)
Posted on 01/07/2013 7:40:08 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
A hunting buddy of mine emailed me from the waiting room of his doctors office in Columbus, Ga., a few days after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School. He was cringing in embarrassment as an old redneck spewed racially divisive rhetoric in front of African-American patients. Then my friends embarrassment turned to astonishment as that same redneck (almost certainly a gun owner, given the region and his demographic profile) said, I never cared much for Obama, but that speech he gave about those little kidsI give him an A for that. Hes gonna try and get more gun control, and I hope he gets it.
News flash: most gun owners support common-sense gun-safety laws. I should know; Im one of them. I own so many shotguns and rifles its a veritable arsenal. I used to hunt with my father and grandfather as a boy, and now I love taking my sons hunting with their grandfather and uncle. When I hear the words gun culture, the first image that comes to mind is not a crazed loner. I think of cold, crisp mornings riding a horse out into a Georgia field, feeling the thrill as an English Pointer snaps to attention at the scent of a bird. Or long hours sitting in a Texas deer stand with one of my sons, waiting, wondering if a big buck will arrive before the dying of the light. I taught each of my boys about the birds and the bees in a deer stand. Taught them how to respect Gods creation, honor the wild things we harvest, and thank the Creator humbly for our place in the food chain and the ultimate free-range, organic meal...

He’s an liar and an idiot.
Yeah - gun owners are in the streets DEMANDING more gun laws.
That’s why gun sales are SPIKING - to prevent other people from getting said guns. :)
Hes an liar and an idiot.
Your right! If anything I want gun laws loosened!
Liberals write fairy tales everyday.
A pinhead...a loser...a degenerate...a waste of skin and oxygen...a reprobate...a moonbat...a subhuman...a twit...need I go on?
IF, he’s actually from Texas, he’s an insult to the blessed state.
You needn’t go on, but please do!
Even White Racist Rednecks want gun control...
Sheesh Paul, what debate team were you on?
Maybe Peirs has gotten the hint. Just like his right to be an idiot, we have the right to call him on it.
Wondering what CNN think about it. 100K plus people who will probably not tune into their station. Probably a lot more than that.
He lost me at “A hunting buddy of mine ...”
Just another dumb ass that thinks the 2A is about hunting.
>> Even White Racist Rednecks want gun control...
Well, this one certainly does.
It’s one of the reasons I practice shooting.
Unfortunately, there is some truth to this. I personally know several gun owners who think future sells of large capacity magazines and even assault type weapons should be banned. They don’t see any need to own any themselves and so don’t see a ban as any skin off their nose.
And conversely I know a guy that voted for Obama twice, that just ran out and spent a grand on an AK this weekend.
I’m not planning to visit ... let’s say ... Wisconsin — so why not make it a crime to visit Wisconsin? It’s no skin off my nose.
Typical play from the book of losers. One old racist redneck supposedly gives Obama an “A” on a speech and the liberals spin it as “most gun owners support tougher controls.”
I don’t see it, no one I know or have talked to that are gun owners are for more let alone tougher regulations. The consensus is pretty much leave me the hell alone!
Zer0’s propagandists are working overtime I see.
F U B O !
