My buddy Sebastian is getting a lot of crap over the whole Dan Cooper issue – as an aside, Dan if you’re reading this, you’re still welcome on my show – but back to the issue, Sebastian has received a lot of hate mail from people telling him how bad and wrong he is to come out against Cooper.
The problem of course with that is Sebastian was using the same 1st Amendment rights that Dan Cooper used – and no one, not Cooper Firearms, not bloggers, and certainly not the eeeebil gun lobby suppressed Dan’s right to free speech. He exercised that right, and then had to live with the consequences of it, just like I would have to do if I went on this blog and said that I supported Obama or something equally silly.
What’s funny is that I kind of have a bad feeling about what happened to Dan Cooper; which is hard to explain. I personally disagree with his politics, but I sometimes worry that in the pro-gun community we’re too fast to eat our own. Whether or not that’s an accurate feeling is what I’m struggling with right now.
