Photos: The NRA Takes Nashville

Three days in the center of gun country celebrating the Second Amendment – we saw big rifles, small handguns, Presidential candidates and so much more. Here’s a selection of photos from myself and Jeanne Devon of our time at the National Rifle Association’s Annual Meeting – this year in Nashville, Tennessee.

    This was possibly the most frightening footage I’ve ever seen in my life…amazed at the women involved, too…hate and fearmongering rampant…scairy people. You were so brave, and so was Brian!!

  2. Mike D says:

    When did Jindal become a member of the Blue Man Group?

  3. akbright says:

    Oliver North proclaimed his “demand” for a President with integrity? I don’t think he would know integrity if it bit him in the ass.

  4. Love My Dogs says:

    What? No pink camo guilley suits? I am so disappointed.

  5. Amy says:

    Looks like Buttmunch Central.

  6. mike from iowa says:

    boodog-quite the dichotomy you spelled out except to wingnuts dichotomy is the procedure Marcus Bachmann uses to pray the gay out of Lesbians.

  7. boodog says:

    Poor Brian! Give that Moose a Medal for going above and beyond- surrounded by all those killing machines. Politics is one thing, but a selfie with the enemy right in their own camp??
    He could have ended up as a big bowl of Brian Chili.

  8. mike from iowa says:

    Exceptional country,indeed. Nutjob codified version of the 2nd Amendment except for the real important part about well regulated militia.Every weapon shown is similar to what our founding fathers used and approved of,not. Every speaker made a personal sacrifice to serve their country in the military,not! With the exception of Miss Lindsey Graham cracker.

  9. Zyxomma says:

    That must have been stranger than visiting another country — ANY other country.

  10. slipstream says:

    That was a very dangerous place for Brian to visit! Rifles everywhere!

    What a brave moose! He must be made of steely stuff.
