Who packs the most heat?

September 4, 2008

Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn, moments ago:

“I tell you, we really are the gun-toting, god-fearing, freedom-loving, flag-waving Americans who are excited to see two crack shots on the ballot with the status quo in their sights.”

Possible antecedents for that ‘we’  include her fellow Tennesseans, Tennesseans and Alaskans, or – perhaps – NASCAR fans. In any case, it’s clear who she wasn’t talking about: the entrenched elites in the Northeast. And fair enough. The East Coast is notorious for failing to fear God, love freedom, and wave flags. But gun-toting?

Please, Congresswoman.

From New York to Miami, from Newark to Obama’s own Chicago, people in East Coast cities have been more than happy to put aside their elitist, Ivy-League predjudices and strap up. These cosmopolitan folk take their Second Amendment rights seriously, even in the face of much tougher (and flagrantly unconstitutional) attempts to stop them. So give some credit where it’s due.
