Attention gun owning women in Seattle

Women in the Seattle area, you could probably do a lot of good for the gun rights movement in Washington State by attending this meeting tonight:

Gun Culture & American Democracy

Wednesday, January 10, 7:30 PM

Joan Burbick, professor of English and American Studies at Washington State University, has written a socio-historical introduction to American gun culture in a book entitled Gun Show Nation. The author of Rodeo Queens & the American Dream and Healing the Public, Burbick talks about the social, legal, and political history of gun culture and its current expression in contemporary America. She shows how the Second Amendment rights movement was born of the social unrest of the 1960s and highlights the paradoxical belief that the gun itself is capable of stopping violence. She concludes that for many white, middle-aged men, the gun serves as a powerful symbol of personal freedom and is representative of a mythologized frontier past. Downstairs at Town Hall, enter on Seneca Street. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life and Elliott Bay Book Company, the Seattle Post Intelligencer and CeaseFire.

Men in camouflage or “Vote from the rooftop” t-shirts with beer bellies would not be productive.

  1. “Men in camouflage or “Vote from the rooftop” t-shirts with beer bellies would not be productive.”

    Indeed.
    Gun owners need to be conscious of the fact that the gun banners will alway try to find the worst, and most stereotypical (to them), examples to use to paint us as ignorant, dangerous extremists.

    The scruffy guy with the dark shades and the cameo is the one you always see on the news.

    Cameo is for the field and private gatherings (f that is one’s fashion sense – not mine, BTW). It is not for the gun show, and not demonstrations and meetings, nor anywhere else the media is looking for “ammo” to use against us.

  2. Crap.
    I’m sorry about your niece, too.
    I had a daughter that died very young, and I don’t want to minimize your loss, either.

    Sorry.
