Default Rifle acumen yields a collegiate hotshot [SF Gate]

Here is an AR-shooting kid from Marin County getting some well-deserved spotlight in the San Francisco Bay Area media, of all places.

Default Great front page photo

Of Richmond Rod and Gun's high power rifle range above the fold. Inside the paper, there is the photo of the student posing with an AR-15.

Congrats to James for his accomplishment! Kind of a shame he has to keep it on the down low given where he lives.

Good fairly unbiased article though. None of the Marin rags carried any mention of it of course.

Most the comments ran from the typical Bay Area libtard knee-jerk reactions to some pretty disgusting ones as usual when a story like this is published.

Best part of the article is not mentioning that it's an "assault rifle"

Great article, surprisingly neutral re: the subject matter, given the source.
