Confessions of a Liberal Gun Owner
I AM a New England liberal, born and bred. I have lived most of my life in the Northeast — Boston, New York and Philadelphia — and my politics are devoutly Democratic. In three decades, I have voted for a Republican exactly once, holding my nose, in a mayoral election in which the Democratic candidate seemed mentally unbalanced.
I am also a Texas resident and a gun owner.
I can relate to this op-ed quite well. Not all gun owners are conservative. Not all gun owners are nuts. Not all gun owners keep our guns in the closet. And so on.
Point out the nuts and laugh, but please use an appropriately sized brush when you paint them…
