Yes, we do certainly need to hang together. Like the man says, just because they’re not calling your .243 Winchester hunting rifle a “long range sniper rifle” yet doesn’t mean that they won’t.
On the topic of the term “Fudd” itself, I’m generally opposed to its use. I think and believe that hunters are a tremendously important demographic for us to have on our side, and further dividing our own ranks in front of a newly energized anti-gun lobby probably isn’t in our best interests. And yes, I’ve used it, and used it disparagingly, which is something that I regret doing.
