One of my favorite pro-gun chicks is journalist and political commentator S.E. Cupp. She’s young, but never sophomoric. She’s ridiculously smart, but not condescending. She’s sophisticated and dignified, but also very down to earth. She’s beautiful (some would say “hot”), but she doesn’t have to wear skin-tight, super-short hot-chick dresses like the gals on Fox News. She’s reportedly an atheist, but she respects people of faith and isn’t rudely dismissive of their beliefs. Her conservative chops are unassailable, and yet she doesn’t blindly toe the Republican line (she’s pro marriage equality, for example). Unlike most conservatives, she’s perfectly comfortable holding her own on liberal networks during primetime, without being combative or resorting to ad hominem attacks.
And she’s 100% pro-gun, but she’s also able to show compassion for victims of gun violence. She famously fought back tears when covering the Sandy Hook tragedy (and I’m not talking about Hillary Clinton campaign tears; I’m talking about human being tears). That moment in my opinion made her much more endearing and more credible in her continued gun advocacy than the hard-nosed righteous indignation types like Wayne LaPierre, who typically loses opponents’ attention before he even gets to the valid pro-gun arguments. I look forward to seeing where S.E. Cupp’s career takes her.

I’ve been favorably impressed by Ms. Cupp’s writing and speaking. I would also commend to you Mary Katherine Ham; though I suspect you may be somewhat more discomfitted by some of her opinions (as denounced by Keith Olberman as the “Worst Person in the World” some years ago).
I mention MKH since she appeared with the Virginia Citizens Defense League speaking to Virginia Delegates in Richmond at least one year. For her to have lent support to our efforts was most appreciated by many of us.
Hmm. Well now, having that distinction from Olbermann could be an insult OR an accomplishment, depending on lots of factors. I think Olbermann put himself on his own list a few times! But now I’m curious so I’ll definitely check out MKH. Thanks! -tgj 🙂
