Ricker Quote of the Day

He’s been commenting on gun blogs so much, maybe I can start a regular feature:

I do not describe the regulars who read a blog named the “The Bitch Girls” to be the AHSA target market. I think it should be clear from my comments here and on other “whacko” blogs that AHSA is reaching out to a more educated, sophisticated and straight thinking hunter and shooter demographic. Unfortunately, a “bitter” female with a gun and a chip on her shoulder probably would not find AHSA’s message of civic responsibility much to her liking.

He means a target market he hopes is smart enough, educated enough, and sophisticated enough not to notice who leaders in his organization like to hang out with?

    “Straight thinking”? I think he’s implying that gun bloggers are dishonest. That’s kind of ironic, coming from him.

    Those are the exact same things that his mentor Paul Helmke says. Anyone who disagrees with them are “irrational”, “unreasonable”, etc.

    We definitely know where he gets it from.

    I’m a whacko?

    Well if you own guns and don’t want to gut ducks then you’re clearly wacko.

    Guess what? I am educated, sophisticated (well, in a certain light, anyway), and straight-thinking. That’s why I can see you for what you are, Ricker: just another gun grabber trying to put one over by wearing camouflage and hunter orange, and attempting to frame this debate in terms of something it’s not about.
