A gun nut is the kind of individual that loves his or her gun(s) over the life of an innocent gun violence victim. They have no room for negotiations, period, only a demand that their gun rights not be violated in any way. A gun nut has a ring in the nose, pulled regularly by the NRA asking for money to fund an organization that is completely self-absorbed. This person believes the 2nd Amendment is sacrosanct and completely untouchable, that the Founding Fathers had Wayne LaPierre’s and the NRA’s interpretation of this law in mind when it was passed in 1791. A gun nut swaggers into a Target or Kroger store with arrogance just to show that it can be done, sometimes masking a limited masculinity or femininity. Any conversation on firearms immediately prompts the comment, “Sounds like you’re trying to take away my gun.” Most likely many gun nuts maintain an arsenal at home alleging for years now the government takeover that is “just around the corner.” There is possibly a gun nut on every block and if we could just get rid of these radicals, the solution to gun violence would be so much easier.
