Sebastian, over at Snowflakes in Hell, brings up some incredible truth about our anti gun writer groups.
The anti's must pay to get people to write their talking points in a blog or a story byline. We, the gun friendly bloggers, do it because we love it.I don't take money of any kind on my blog, and I most likely never will. I speak my mind freely and never feel obliged to speak nicely or negatively at/or about anyone. My blog will never get the 5000 hits a day or more that others get, but I have some readers. If I influence or educate one additional person, I have done well.
The anti gunners argue about the money the NRA has all the time. In reading Sebastian's blog I recall that in a bad economic year, I gave 750+ to the Friends of NRA at 3 dinners this year alone. 250 dollars went to the NRA-ILA, and mostly that was 25 to 40 bucks at a time, when I could. I also have given to the NRA Defense Fund during the Brian Aiken tragedy in NJ. So I am slightly over 1000 dollars spread out over the year. Since before I worked at the gun shop I have always believed in 2nd amendment rights. 40 years after getting my own 22 rifle I still believe, but now I believe enough to supply some cash!
