    I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
    nor the arrow for its swiftness,
    nor the warrior for his glory.
    I love only that which they defend.

    I had someone tell me they'd NEVER think I'd have a gun and would have thought I was a liberal who voted for Obama. o_O I think females in general have a bit of a hard time in the 'gun culture', but no idea why I "look like I voted for Obama".

    Uh, yeah.

    Do you have a look like you want something but have no idea what it is.....you just want something but don't care what it is or how you get it?

    You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
    You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
    However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
    1) Call someone with a gun.
    2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man

    We probably all stereotype at some point due to the people we associate with and the place we live. I try not to do so, but sometimes I do.

    Most people outside my state and area think we are shotgun totin' barefoot rednecks because that is how the media portrays us.

    Americans in general are a diverse group, but we all have some commonalities. Firearm ownership and shooting definitely can be one. We just don't advertise it all the time.

    Yeah...it's hard to get away from the stereotypes. I'm a 5'7 Mexican and for some reason people can't help but ask me about their lawn or if I'm interested in laying some tile...

    I think we are all victims of the media's portrayal of gun owners as gun toting ignorant redneck bumpkins or crazed militia types. While we know that the portrayal is not true, the medai has ben successful in at least influencing our subconcious reactions. The last thing they want is for gun owners to be seen in a positve light, it would upset their agenda. We are all "unlearning" every day. I admit to being embarassed sometimes by my initial reaction to people when they do not fit the "stereotype".

    Being the head of the art department at a small community college I seem to fit the ultra left liberal stereotype (media induced BS).

    The majority of my colleagues are antis that think our fearless leader will save the world, and they are fairly vocal about it too. I've learned to just keep my mouth shut.

    We are in a rural area and more than once I have seen some of my students at the favorite shooting spot in the foothills. I am happy to say I have taken administrators as well as administrative assistants out for a nice day of shooting quite a few times.

    I guess i never really bought into the stereotypes of gun owners and shooters. This is likely because i am a mix breed of sorts. I work in a white collar office all week and i am completely comfortable in that world. On the weekends I am a jeans a hoodie type of guy. I don't live in the city and often time that hoodie has a deer or something of that sort on it, oh and i almost always wear my hoyt camo hat when i go out. In the fall i live in camo everyweekend. I have a little redneck and a little city slicker in me among other things i guess.

    I work at an engineering firm and when guns get brought up it's really a funny situation. You can almost see the fear in their eyes just talking about it.
