"Shhhh, be wary quiet...I'm hunting other gun owners"
Today I would like to take a moment to talk about one of the threats to our constitutional rights to bear arms...other gun owners. No, I am not talking about the idiots that post ridiculous videos on YouTube showing irresponsible and sometimes dangerous behavior involving firearms (they deserve their own post), but rather the "Fudd".
The Fudd (named after the cartoon character Elmer Fudd) is the type of person who believes that guns only have a place in a certain role, usually field hunting, and disregard everyone else's rights to own them based upon the founding principles of the Constitution on this bias. They are generally perceived to be older types that grew up when the closest thing to a "tactical" weapon to be had was buying a surplus M1 Carbine out of the back of a hunting magazine (wish I could now!). They can be identified by their penchant for tweed and duck canvas and funny hats (just kidding). To the fudd the mere existence of tactical weapons such as pistols or EBR's (evil black rifles) draws scorn, ridicule or at the least a depraved indifference to their existence. If indifference was their only mark on the rest of us, that would be bearable. Unfortunately, some of the Fudd actually go out and vote for anti-gun candidates or support efforts to ban "tactical" or "assault" weapons. To them, nobody needs more than 3 rounds in a weapon and a barrel less than 24" in length.
To make it worse, there are people out there that are Fudds that don't even hunt or own a firearm! Its true! Just look at our President, he comes from a very anti-gun area (Chicago), has supported and pushed for anti-gun legislations in the past (and looks like the future too) but says he supports hunters at the same time and is only going after "bad" guns. This is the same guy who said people in the Midwest were afraid and "clinging to their guns and religion".
So, to the Fudd's out there I say "WAKE UP!!" Its time to realize gun rights are about everybody, not just yourself. I may be in the anti-2A's sights now, but sooner or later you will be as well. And as for that "sporting shotgun" you own thats "only for waterfowl"...well go ahead and outlaw my carbine and see what they'll be selling in the stores for me next....bwahahahahahah!!
