White Gun Culture

OK I admit that I've never gone to a gun show in any southern or western state. I've been to gun shows in nearly every state in the North-East, New York and PA. And frankly, I've never seen what Courtland Milloy mentions in his op-ed.
And go to any major gun show -- into the heart of America's white gun culture -- and you'll find plenty of Confederate flags and supremacist literature on display. And even if everybody at the show doesn't subscribe to those views, the people there aren't offended enough to stay away.
Never seen any supremacist literature and never seen a Confed flag in the show. I don't doubt that it may occur in some venues, but generalizing this way, and other ways in the article are just sad.
