An actress with a large social media following poses with a gun, and the comments reveal the real heart of America.
It's sad that anyone in America should think it's a big deal to go to a shooting range and take a course. Learning how to safely operate a firearm, and doing so at a shooting range should be one of the most non-controversial topics of all time. It is genuinely sad that basic firearms education causes any controversy whatsoever. Fortunately that was a very small portion of the comments. The encouraging part is that modern social media allows us to see what users actually think, not just what some fake news person chooses to say about a topic. And from the comments it is clear that while some people don't support her new hobby, plenty are supportive of both the Second Amendment, and her willingness to share her training. Here are some of the positive comments.
We firmly support her seeking out training. It is our position that this sort of basic firearms education should be mandatory in the public school system. It is a wild conundrum of the "progressive" agenda. The solution to reduce unplanned pregnancies is increased sex education. The same "progressive" ideology has a different solution for accidental death by firearm, learn nothing about the subject, and blame people with the knowledge and experience to help fix the problem, for incidents of which they had no part. Obviously that is a topic for another day.
While the picture causing most of the stir is her posing with a small handgun in a holster, she also snapped a photo with a pump shotgun and what appears to be an FN SCAR.
Interestingly enough, she cannot legally own a handgun in the state of California until she is 21 years of age.
