    NY Times Article on Black Rifles

    Theres an interesting New York Times article about black rifles. It's surprisingly accurate and unbiased for a Times piece on guns. Perhaps some of this is because it's in the Business section and focuses quite a bit on the AR marketplace.

    However, the picture that accompanies the article is really worth a thousand words:



    That's Ted Nugent on the left and Jim Zumbo on the right. I was skeptical about Zumbo's apology, but if the man is willing to have himself photographed shooting an AR in pink striped camouflage, well, he's certainly willing to go the extra mile to make amends.

    As a pro-gun advocate who is absolutely unabashed at publicly stating the logic and sense of the pro-gun side, we could do no better than Ted Nugent.

    I saw him speak in an interview in the days right after the Virginia Tech massacre, and he was just . . . magnificent. He's not shy about simply saying that other people's viewpoints make no sense, if that's the truth. No tiptoeing around and being polite toward those who would strip our rights from us. That's what I really like about him. Why act falsely as though an anti-gunner's "opinion" about gun ownership is as legitimate as a pro-gunner's? I don't feel it is, and I'm glad we have a champion who is just as forthright.

    Good and seemingly fair article by the NY Times.
    So, who made the pink AR in the photo? My honey needs one of those!
