Being a ‘Gun Owner’ is Not Enough

Being a ‘Gun Owner’ is Not Enough

The sun is shining brightly through my office window, my family still slumbers downstairs on this chilly winter morning, I’m not quite through my first cup of coffee and I am already annoyed.

As a part of my daily routine, I rise early, brew coffee, let the black lab out to do his thing, and sort through emails, etc. before commencing the day’s business. Frequently I will peruse the firearms related wires and formalized gun blogs. During today’s perusal I came across yet another assertion that it is not just conservatives and Republicans who “own” guns. The implication is that we right-wing, conservative types need to be “inclusive” and recognize that left-wing, Democrat voters are gun owners as well. My response is, as Col. Sherman Potter used to say, “Horse Hockey!”

Do I believe that left-wing, liberal-minded Obama voters do in fact possess firearms? Of course they do. And, you know what? It does not make one damn bit of a difference. There’s a guitar in my closet and that makes me a “guitar owner” but ownership sure as hell doesn’t make me a musician.
