Even if you were never a leatherneck, there’s a good chance you know the Rifleman’s Creed. Or at least part of it. You saw Full Metal Jacket, right? Our I Am a Gun Owner series showed — in no uncertain terms — that America’s gun owners aren’t, in fact, just the camo-clad backwoods OFWG caricatures the gun control industry likes to paint. Actually, we’re anything but.
So now, with a lot of the focus of civilian disarmament efforts aimed at “military-inspired weapons of war,” it should be instructive to see what The People of the Gun really look like along with their favorite rifle. An no, it doesn’t have to be an AR or AK. Or even black.
Just be sure to include the reasons why your rifle is important to you. Send your This is My Rifle statement photo to [email protected] with the word RIFLE (all caps) in the subject bar. Let us know if you want us to use your name, a screen nic or remain anonymous. Again, we’ll post them here and start a new album on our Facebook page. Thanks.
