WTF?  Talking to Victoria Taft (KPAM in Portland) about staking out the border with Canada.  He's pleased that the M-Men are not "gun nuts".  Fairly shitty way to describe a group named for people who had the stones to pick up arms when SHTF.  "Gun nuts"?  WTF is that?  Anybody from WA know what's up with this guy?

Gun nuts is a phrase a lot of people use to describe anyone with an interest in firearms. I wouldn't freak out over it.

We'll see how pleased he is when a few MM get murdered by drug mules crossing the border and couldn't defend themselves.

If that what he thinks of "gun nuts", then maybe we should start telling the MM's we won't be volunteering for their them.  Why go where you're not wanted?

A "gun nut" brings a certain amount of negative press to the organization, stereotypes it and detracts from the message the organization is trying to send and the image it is trying to portray. I can understand why he doesn't want the organization to be portrayed as being composed of guys  like that overweight  rambling guy  in grubby BDUs running around gun shows that inevitably is the one guy the press is drawn to when they cover the gun show.....you kbnow the type I mean.
