I have a friend who is into guns in a big way. He has been since before he was old enough to buy one without his mother's permission. He loves to shoot. He also is a computerphobe. He son gave him a computer. He refuses to use it. We were talking the other day and he noted to me that among his shooting friends, almost none of them use the computer. To me, this is mind-boggling. It is like choosing not to read or some such thing. But so it is with this group of people.
And then I got to thinking that there is a large group of libertarian (for want of a better description, perhaps) gun enthusiasts who are very active on the internet. I pointed out this discrepancy to my friend who speculated that "his" group was interested in shooting for shooting's sake, while the "libertarian" group was interested in shooting for a totally different reason.
I have no idea what, if anything, this means. I just found it interesting and thought I'd share.
