Last Wednesday (just minutes before my car blew up) I decided while driving home from work that I would start keeping track of the amount of pro-gun and anti-gun bumper stickers that I see on my commute across Raleigh every day.
I basically only had one rule: I wouldn’t count the stickers if I saw them in parking lots (not fair, because I spend a lot of time at gun and sporting good type stores) so I would only count stickers on cars that were actually being driven.
So, in about a week of driving the results are in, and the pro-gun folks of Raleigh win. I actually counted 36 pro-gun stickers before I lost count, and I didn’t see a single anti-gun sticker on any cars at all. No MDA stickers, no Brady Bunch stickers, no gunbusters on a rear bumper, nothing. In all honesty though, I don’t think I’ve ever seen an anti-gun bumper sticker.
What I did see was a bunch of the following:
- “Tac Life” – A version of the “Salt Life” stickers that everybody and their brother seems to have on their vehicle.
“Extremely Rightwing” – a sticker made by LaRue Tactical
Tons of NRA stickers. I’m so used to seeing them, that I probably forgot to count half of them.
Molan Labe – A couple different styles, but yeah.
Gadsden flag stickers
Like I said, not scientific, but it was such a blowout that I didn’t feel like I needed to start over and count cars again for another week.
Do you look for the pro-gun stickers while driving?
