The other day I found it necessary to defend my use of the ethnic description, "Hillbilly."
I am a hillbilly. I was born in the deep south, I grew up in rural areas, places where the resurgent Klan flourished in the 1920(s). At various times I worked and I lived in the South throughout my adult life. I vacation in the South. Everyone in my family if not actually a hillbilly, sounds like a hillbilly
Many members of my family own and shoot guns. I owned and shot weapons of all sorts both in and out of the military service, although I won none now.
But, hillbillies with guns, especially drunk hillbillies with guns, give me the willies. And let me be clear, all drunk white people waiving gusn around are "hillbillies with guns."
Today, the Charlston Gazette is reporting that 24 year old, Hannah Danielle Workman's 4 year old toddler was shot in the lower leg by her 16 year old boyfriend in what appears to be an "accidental," Christmas day shooting. The authorities have charged Mom with neglect, and they're looking for the boyfriend. No word from the NRA, yet.
