We’re sitting in our room in Pittsburgh watching the local news on KDKA CBS Channel 2 and we hear that “gun rights activists” are upset with a “Pittsburgh institution” just before the NRA Annual Meeting. Of course, we have to listen to this story!
The story is about Primanti Brothers and the picture of the cook wearing a MAIG T-shirt. They interview a higher level manager with the company who says they welcome anyone. He goes on to say that he thinks the cook was “just trying to be friendly” by wearing the MAIG shirt.
They then feature a photo of the Snow Flakes in Hell website. They then intone that the NRA and the website wouldn’t “answer questions” and referred them to the blog.
If anyone thinks that gun bloggers don’t have an impact is wrong. Whether it is Primanti Brothers or Project Gunwalker, gun bloggers brought attention to things that needed that attention. As usual, the media is late to the party.
