Call me Bubba, you're going to anyway.

Too many suppose the "gun rights" movement to be an expression of the "gun culture", a phenomenon particular to the United States and that portion of its populace prone to personal and political violence and anarchy and usually considered by "enlightened souls" to be dim-witted and backward in most matters personal and political.

While I would be the first to admit these attributes may be occasionally seen in some few instances, the most common qualities of those who are avid supporters of the Second Amendment are a dedication to the rule of law and the validity and applicability of the Constitution of the United States in public policy and life today, pride in the United States of America, a fierce commitment to personal and national security, and a confidence that, if pretty much left alone by the Federal government, her citizens can and will take care of themselves.

“If it be asked, What is the most sacred duty and the greatest source of our security in a Republic? The answer would be, An inviolable respect for the Constitution and Laws—the first growing out of the last... A sacred respect for the constitutional law is the vital principle, the sustaining energy of a free government.” —Alexander Hamilton

As a rule, "gun nuts' do not suffer fools, have no use for anyone that can't back up their arguments with facts (real ones), and have nothing but scorn for those who base their thinking on fuzzy "feelings" and utopian tripe that makes them feel good about themselves (and usually superior to others), no matter the consequences.

Pro-gun people seldom prevaricate. If you want to know what they think, just ask them. And don’t expect them to spare your feelings. That’s probably why they didn’t say something in the first place.

Pro-gun people don’t want you in their business, and have little desire to get into yours unless you’re meddling with theirs, particularly on Constitutional issues. They have no desire to force everyone to own and/or carry a firearm, and will steadfastly resist any effort on your part to infringe on their right to do so. They are eager to present their rationale if you want to hear it, but if you decide it’s not for you, that ends the discussion as far as they are concerned.

Yup, my kind of people.
