Indy 1500 Fun Show

Tam notes that the lines were around the corner:

These people weren’t there buying stuff to turn in. See that line? All those people are about to spend $500-$1000 to become stakeholders in the Second Amendment.

I’m really hoping by the time all is said and done, this is a story about Obama waking up a sleeping giant. I just wish I felt more confident about that. But that’s too little too late for gun owners in New York, and possibly other blue states.

    Whatever. Say what you want about this post being about the strength of gun owners. You really only linked to Tam because her omelete is covered in something that looks like sriracha sauce. (For those who don’t know, he’s become a sriracha addict in the last few months.)

      No, it’s about the guns. All about the guns. Don’t you dare say anything foul about my beloved Sriracha. I can quit whenever I want.

      Guilty as charged. :o

    My wife’s cousin, in Georgia, who for the nearly 20 years I’ve known him always declined to go shooting cause he just didn’t care about guns (not hostile to them, or anything. just not anything he cared about or had interest in) went shooting today for the first time (shot a .22, an AR-15 and some handguns) with his wife and 14 year old son and some friends. He and his wife then went to a store and purchased a handgun (KelTec PF9). And now they are planning to buy a second AND want to get Concealed Carry Permits. All because of Obama.

    I have been attending the Indy1500 since it started in the early ’80s. Nothing compares to the madness that I witnessed Saturday. Hysteria is the only word I can come up with.

    I almost sold a gun while fueling up my truck on 38th Street before picking up Tam for breakfast at Cafe Pretenchou (zomg, you just MUST try that Julia omlete when you come for the NRA Annual Meeting in 2014–hell, try all the places in Broad Ripple, block out a month).

    We need to get all these new gun owners signed up as NRA members. NICs checks are great but paid memberships, even as gifts, count more.
