Gun safety alert
My old man - God bless his soul - taught me that when you're hunting, your gun should be either pointed down at the ground or aiming at a target. You don't carry it like a fishing pole. Apparently this bit of common sense escaped John Kerry while he pandered to the pro-gun crowd in Iowa (see picture).
Patio Pundit summed up the gun issue perfectly: Kerry vs. Dean on guns: Rove wins
[Viking Pundit disclaimer: I used to hunt pheasant and, to be honest, I was a pretty good shot with the clay pigeons. However, I haven't picked up a gun in (oh man, what?) 15 years? Still, I'm staunchly in support of the second amendment, so now you know.]
