Pope-Civitas Institute speaks out on guns

Recently the staff at the Pope-Civitas Institute became concerned that some were confusing their group with an unrelated media company known as Civitas Media — which had supposedly been seeking public  records related to individuals with licenses to carry concealed weapons.

As it turns out, the story about Civitas Media was unfounded, but that didn’t stop the Pope-Civitas folks from sending out a fundraising letter last Friday featuring this photo of staff members demonstrating their support for guns and “concealed-carry.”   The photo is also posted on the Pope-Civitas website (which you can view by clicking  here).

    The only thing missing from the picture is the pick-up, and Nascar t-shirts.

    As a fairly serious NASCAR fan (and one of very few to ever combine a trip to Talladega with stop at the Birmingham Civil Rights Museum), I resent that remark…I think. :)

    They have the right to own fire arms. I don’t have a problem with that. What I have a problem with is that they believe that under a stressful situation they will react like a well trained and experienced under fire soldier. Would they know how to compensate for the adrenaline rushing through their body at a time of stress? The list goes on as to their lack of training and experience. It may be cool to “carry” now days but would you want an inexperienced gun toting novice drawing their weapon and not knowing what to really do with it other than to shoot.

    They live with the illusion that they will save the day as if they are Bruce Willis in a movie. In the military they drum that sort of thinking out of you so you can save your life and the lives of others.
