Typical

It seems that every time the NRA comes to town the bigots come out of the woodwork:

Though gun sales to females increased significantly in recent years, Piendl said, “Sales to women remain the largest untapped growth market in the industry.”

The industry is unlikely to successfully tap that market until it conquers the pesky preconceived notions that likely turn off many females to the idea of gun ownership. Women likely won’t consider packing pistols if they are concerned that:

— Spending several hundred dollars on a serviceable handgun might leave them without enough money to get the full treatment at that next visit to the day spa.

— Carrying a gun in a small purse would leave less room for more important items, such as lipstick or compact.

— The baggy clothing required to successfully conceal most holsters would make them appear frumpy.

— Gunpowder residue might stain the new Karen Scott blouse they just bought at Macy’s.

— The gunpowder smell when the weapon is fired could totally overwhelm the Chanel they’re wearing.

— Most firearm accessories come only in one boring color: black.

— Target practice earplugs simply aren’t sexy.

This isn’t the first time Eric Heyl has expressed his disdain for gun owners.

Breda and Bitter also have some choice words for him.

  1. It’s the clan mentality that pervades the anti rights movement, rearing its ugly head. It’s all about tolerance, compassion and diversity until someone steps forth and advocates liberty. Then you’re a silly, stupid bumpkin or a ditsy, airhead female, more convcerned about your nails than about survival, etc. The only bigoted, misogynist insult he failed to include was something about bad menstrual periods. Maybe he used that one up on a previous essay that day and didn’t want to appear repetitive.

  2. It’s Easy Rider all over again…only what makes it worse is they think they actually are Captain America.

  3. Well, since I live just a few miles from Breda, and I know how riled up she can get, and since we are both attending the NRA Con and Gunnie Prom, I will do my best to see that she and that Heyl….”Person” stay away from each other. Hate to have her tied up in court while fighting a “Varmit Hunting w/o a LIcense Charge”! But I do have to sleep sometime, and she is small enough to slide through a crowd…..; )

  4. It’s amazing how acceptable bigotry against gun owners is in the MSM. You can’t say something which might be perceived as “racist” even if true, but if the target is gun owners everything is fair game. It doesn’t matter their nationality, race, sexual orientation or gender. They’re GUN OWNERS damnit, and thus the bigotry is just fine.

    What a misogynistic asshole.

  5. Easy Rider is a classic film from the late 1960s about 2 guys who ride their motorcycles across the US in search of…something, and towards the end Captain America (Peter Fonda’s character) delivers an iconic speech about the meaning of freedom and how people talk about it all the time but whenever they encounter someone who actually practices it or is different they go all haywire. I can’t remember the exact quote, but it’s a classic.

  6. No, I misremembered, it was jack nicholson’s character (the lawyer) in the final campfire scene. Here’s the exchange courtesy of IMDB:

    George Hanson: You know, this used to be a helluva good country. I can’t understand what’s gone wrong with it.
    Billy: Man, everybody got chicken, that’s what happened. Hey, we can’t even get into like, a second-rate hotel, I mean, a second-rate motel, you dig? They think we’re gonna cut their throat or somethin’. They’re scared, man.
    George Hanson: They’re not scared of you. They’re scared of what you represent to ’em.
    Billy: Hey, man. All we represent to them, man, is somebody who needs a haircut.
    George Hanson: Oh, no. What you represent to them is freedom.
    Billy: What the hell is wrong with freedom? That’s what it’s all about.
    George Hanson: Oh, yeah, that’s right. That’s what’s it’s all about, all right. But talkin’ about it and bein’ it, that’s two different things. I mean, it’s real hard to be free when you are bought and sold in the marketplace. Of course, don’t ever tell anybody that they’re not free, ’cause then they’re gonna get real busy killin’ and maimin’ to prove to you that they are. Oh, yeah, they’re gonna talk to you, and talk to you, and talk to you about individual freedom. But they see a free individual, it’s gonna scare ’em.
    Billy: Well, it don’t make ’em runnin’ scared.
    George Hanson: No, it makes ’em dangerous. Buh, neh! Neh! Neh! Neh! Swamp!
