Not Funny: Firearm Prohibitionists Finally Target Elmer Fudd’s Gun
For some in the pro-gun community, the term “Fudd” denotes a person who owns guns, typically not for self-defense, but considers themselves above the fray of Second Amendment politics.

This is an impressive and welcome update since the USFWS announced its new policy 11 months ago, particularly as America works to do more with less amid the coronavirus pandemic.
