Should we welcome ‘liberals’ to the shooting world? Of course we should.

Posted by:

I recently found this piece by Terrell Prude Jr. Mr. Prude** is a self-professed liberal who is also a Second Amendment supporter and a member of the NRA. If you’ve been following the blog, Facebook, or any of the podcasts I’ve been on lately you know that this is a hot issue with me. I don’t believe that someone needs to be of a certain political persuasion in order to be a gun rights advocate, and I certainly don’t believe that just because someone voted for President Obama immediately means that he or she is my sworn enemy. Please read Mr. Prude’s essay for the other side of gun ownership, one that we’re far too eager to dismiss. Take the time to read it, especially if you’re not a ‘liberal’.

( ** – In the interest of full disclosure it should be noted that many years ago I did business – and a bit of socializing – with Mr. Prude’s father, who he mentions in his essay. One might suggest that this would predispose me to agreeing with him, but given my public stance I think it’s clear that I’d agree with him even if I didn’t know his Dad.)
