Names purposely not redacted, I’m not any of the commenters shown above. This is only one example in a million but something that I’m seeing more and more in the firearms community (articles that are run, people commenting on said articles, shit like the above photos) of outright racism and ignorance. Getting really fucking tired of seeing an unbelievable amount of outright stupidity and thick-headed imbeciles giving ammo to the media and anti-gunners that we’re all a bunch of backwater skinhead racists. It’s refreshing to see that most of our gun community here on tumblr is above this kind of behavior but holy shit it’s just saddening knowing that there are people out there who allow themselves to fall into such a narrow-minded outlook on the world and never bother to do any research for themselves no matter what side of the fence they fall on.
If anything just please guys and gals keep doing what you’re doing and be the model for what firearm owners should strive for of responsible owners and informed individuals.
