The only reason I can think of to even consider personally becoming a gun owner ever in my life would be to protect my house after the inevitable environmental catastrophe. And yet, generally speaking, the same people fighting to protect gun ownership are often times the same people who are skeptical of global warming. I’d call this ironic if I knew what irony was. But if I were the NRA, I’d turn my focus towards folks like me, who might not even realize they agree with me.
EDIT: this post was inspired by the fact that it hasn’t rained or snowed in Chicago since the 80s and its going to be 55 degrees tomorrow.
