Written on Why Do East Tennesseans Love Their Guns?:

Surprisingly, a pretty decent article overall. I say surprising because, alas, one cannot help but notice that (as usual) the author does not own any guns - what IS it about the "journalist" sub-culture that they so seldom own firearms?

And why is it that the photos of gun owners you choose to publish, no matter how nice they may be, invariably include at least one guy who looks like Grizzly Adams? I'm a clean shaven college educated Marketing and Training professional who wore a suit and tie most of my life - and I've been shooting since I was 8 years old. And most of the people I shoot with fit the same profile - business owners, doctors, and (shock of shocks!) even a couple of university professors.

Oh, by the way, the primary subconscious psychological reason that people do not own guns is a form of denial - by not owning a gun they are essentially telling themselves that they will never need one.

All that being said, good job - a fair shake is better than none at all.
