I’m exasperated with this “boating accident” meme.
Yes, I understand the joke and its basis.
Yes, I know it’s a “wink wink nudge nudge” funny.
It still feeds into an attitude of being ashamed or afraid of admitting to gun ownership.
I didn’t lose mine. Anywhere. Not gonna go into details of what I have.
One of many reasons I bought NFA items was that there would be no question whether I’m “on the list” - heck yeah I am: between that and C&R I’m a card-carrying good guy certified as such by the one group who I have greatest concern to trust me least.
It’s embarrassing to see how many take, however jokingly, the tone of “uh, I lost mine...”
Heck, Charles Barkely fessed up to owning and carrying. Can’t you?
The people who say they lost their guns in a boating accident are joking.
The people who cache their firearms, do it, and don't say anything.
