The Fudd.....

"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.
The Fudd in his natural environment..

What the Fudds generally overlook is that some of the same people going after those of us who see nothing wrong in owning a pistol that holds 15 rounds or a rifle similar to the one we were trained with in the military, are the same folks that think nothing of making them register their own hunting weapons and possibly doing away with them in the future. I mean, really, who actually needs to go out and barbarically butcher another living creature with a gun when you can buy your meat from "donor" animals at the supermarket. Better yet, many of these same forces would rather just have you forgo the cruelty of eating meat all together and snack on some tofu and bean paste. For the record, I do eat tofu and bean paste on occasion..and also on the record check out what we made last night for dinner...jucy lucy burgers...

Real men own guns...and eat meat

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".

Fudd Kryptonite...and yeah, I am clinging to it too..

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!!

Fudd: "OMG! They have taken the purity from my once beautiful hunting gun!"

I believe that was Pensylvania,where obama made the clinging to gun comment. And I believe Pensylvania is in the east, not the midwest.

OK, if it was Pennsylvania it was directed at I stand corrected. No matter where the comment was made, it still was made as a reflection of his attitude towards gun owners in general.

...and Penn State plays in the Big 10, which is a Midwest conference..so there..
