They're buying guns and flocking to shooting ranges. What will happen to Chris Murphy, who's staking his political ambitions on an anti-gun stance, and little else?
Gwendolyn Patton, of the Pink Pistols, a club for for gay, lesbian and transgender gun owners, says new members fear being "harassed by the gun nuts at the range".
But she says they are mostly "welcomed with open arms by the shooting community". [Safety demands that one always keep their arms open when not on a live firing line, but I believe Patton is speaking figuratively]
"There are people who have professed to carrying a gun now because Trump made them feel unsafe," she says.
"I think their fears are groundless but I can't make them not be afraid, so whatever they need to do to feel safer, I don't have a problem with that as long as they do it responsibly."
Remember, liberals, when seconds count, the police are only minutes away.
