Boulder may be the locus of left-wing politics in Colorado, but it is also home to the oversubscribed Boulder Rifle Club, which I visited on a bright early-fall morning with Dave Kopel, of the Independence Institute. The existence of the rifle club surprised me, given Boulder’s reputation. But Kopel argued that gun ownership and sport shooting are not partisan phenomena, and he made the plausible assertion that Boulder is home to “the largest population of armed vegans in America.”I certainly don't agree with all the conclusions reached by Goldberg (and my good friend Dave Kopel does have an excellent turn of phrase, doesn't he), but this article clearly shows the lack of rationality the part of publicity whores like Tom Mauser, and the list of suggestions for what university students should do if faced with an active shooter is just heartbreaking — grab a pencil?
This article is just another data point that regardless of the election results, we are long past the tipping point for public acceptance of firearms. That is a darn good thing!
