These days, anything a gun rights supporter says can and will be used against them in the court of public opinion. The antis mine the Twitterverse and comments sections to find examples of pro-gunners’ misogyny, racism, threatening remarks and general all-round douchebaggery. Hence TTAG’s Facebook ban-hammer and web page Adhomineminator. Simply put, we don’t want to give the antis ammunition. But even a casual reader knows we like to poke the bear from time to time – in the nicest possible way – to vent a little of the pressure created by gun control advocates’ atavistic attacks. All of which means it’s time to exercise your inner anti-anti impishness. What are the three things you shouldn’t say at a long gun open carry demonstration? I suggest . . .
1. I don’t know about you but my finger’s getting itchy.
2. Whoa! Is that a Rufous-Capped Warbler? Use your scope!
3. Let’s end this thing with a twenty-one gun salute!
