Don’t tell our eastern metrosexuals

 

Does this dog make me look fat?

Does this dog make me look fat?

Guns and hunting are now hip.

The current flare-up in the long political battle over gun laws is coming at a moment when American gun culture is more expansive than ever, having gained a foothold among the type of coastal elites that, just a couple decades ago, would have dismissed the very idea of holding a rifle as obscene and offensive. Hunting and recreational shooting, once viewed by the left as backwater pastimes, have won over a liberal coalition of eco-conscious locavores, hipster hunters, and adventure-seeking New York media elites.

    Mr. Fountain,

    Excuse my ignorance, but the metrosexual is on the right in the picture? Yes?

    No that’s a hunting dog as dressed by a metrosexual.

    The MS is the guy with the gun, he really likes how the clothes make him look so retro-hunter ironic. You’ll note he actually bought 00 shot to go bird hunting…

    Does he use special organic powder and politically correct shot?

    Dude –
    He should be pointing the gun at that dog.
    Just sayin.

    Walt, I’m sure the dog so wishes. Even poodles have self respect.

    All we need to seal the deal and have guns and hunting become a tres chic part of the liberal lifestyle is for the Brant brothers to come out with a line of hunting togs suitable for any country squire. Here in the following photo we see one of the brothers sporting some big game camo. As you can see from his pantomiming cat’s claw gesture, there may be more to hunting than merely stomping around in the woods with a gun, and no, I don’t mean drinking — you must become one with the beasts.

    Eurochasse indeed, the Europe hunting in a upper class endeavor, in the US it has traditionally been more plebeian in nature.

    I’m waiting for the the “elite” to get into it, and immediately start trying to muscle/legislate the plebeians out of it.
