I recently traveled to Del Ray Beach Florida to visit my nonagenarian mother. In the course of my day, I schmoozed with a number of [initially] friendly ex-patriated New Yorkers. When they asked me what I did for a living, they blanched. One literally put her head in her hands. Another said “I don’t want to talk to you.” Luckily, I don’t live in Del Ray. Or my home state of Rhode Island (same sh*t different wrapper).
I now live in Austin, Texas Despite Austin being a blue island in a sea of red statedness, I have yet to encounter any neighborly anti-gun antagonism. My ‘hood’s largely comprised of Asian and Indian immigrants (we’re the token white family). While they’re uncomfortable around guns, they’re not uncomfortable with the idea of guns. Or gun rights. My open carrying schnauzer treks attract attention but no animus.
Do you have anti-gun neighbors? If so, tell us about your interactions.
