Can’t we all just get a long gun?
The thing about bloggers, is we’re opinionated, contrary, confrontational sorts. And gun nuts also tend to be contrary and opinionated. When you put the two together, you’re going to have the occasional conflict. But it seems that we gun bloggers spend a lot of time and effort arguing amongst ourselves. The latest drama is addressed here. And it’s pretty much, I think, a misunderstanding. Now, I’m guilty of some of this gun blog drama myself (see a few posts of mine on the threepers). But I’ve avoided getting involved in these things publicly for a while now. Sure, I generally respond to some folks behind the scenes but airing stuff like that in the open is not constructive. It’s not beneficial. And the effort is better spent gloating about how Josh Sugarmann and Carolyn McCarthy are sad clowns. And these things tend to center around some blogging inside baseball that readers probably don’t care much about.
Seriously, can’t we all just get a long gun?
