I'm a militantly liberal libertarian and atheist, and have a rather large (30 or so) collection of firearms. Whenever I rub elbows with other gun nuts, they're invariably staunch right wingers, or rabidly anti government conspiracy types (who are still fairly conservative on most issues.)
So my question is - any other liberals out there with a penchant for firearms?

Every male (and many female) member of my family is also both very pro-gun and very liberal. Even still, I never meet many other folks who share my ideology.

So speak up, my gun-toting, liberal brothers and sisters!

I am a left-wing, liberal hunter who is anti-NRA. My opinions seem to annoy other people.

Yeah, I was always distrustful of the NRA. When they backed Tom Delay, I decided never to give them money every again.

There are LOTS of us!

You've probably seen this already and the "links" especially:

Liberals With Guns

Home

And check out the book Armed America: Portraits of Gun Owners in Their Homes. It's not a book in which the author takes a position on Second Amendment rights, but a book that demonstrates that gun ownership is certainly not limited to particular political ideologies.

I have the opposite experience from yours; by far, most of the liberals (not sure what that means nowadays) I know own at least one gun. It's been estimated that Americans own in excess of 219,000,000 guns; gotta be a lot o' liberals out here with guns.

How can you be anti NRA ??? It's the NRA that wants to make sure you keep the gun you go hunting with.
Your opinions seem to annoy other people! I wonder why..

Gun Owners of America

A much more honest, and less political organization for gun rights.

So you find it odd that someone would not like a group that defends one of teh Bill of Rights?

I've heard of a group that defends all of the Constitution and it is on the receiving end of nothing but venom from the right......


I wonder why....
