When Northern California liberals are said to be “up in arms,” it usually means they’re marching down San Francisco’s Market Street or rallying at Berkeley’s Sproul Plaza — not toting guns and actively defending their right to do so.
But Marlene Hoeber, president of the Northern California chapter of the Liberal Gun Club, wants the world to know that lefty politics and a love for guns and gun rights aren’t mutually exclusive.
“If the conversation about gun policy in the United States is limited to what the National Rifle Association has to say, the conversation is over because not enough people want to listen to that,” said Hoeber, 43, of Oakland. “Hell, I’m a gun person and I don’t want to listen to that.”
Just more evidence for the assertion that you don’t have to be conservative to own guns or to use them safely.
