    I see...so you know some people, I live here....and you are more informed about my backyard than I am.

    During this event...Knob Creek is no longer just a Shooting Range. It is well established fact in Bulitt County/Louisville. In this case....I think I might be somewhat more informed than you are.

    well this shows something-lefties hate gun owners not because of guns specifically but because they are conservatives

    This "Moron"...is not only a gun owner, but lives within earshot of the place in question.

    I am not stereotyping...instead explaining what this event entails.

    Re: Why would you own an assault rifle?

    My simple answer to the OP's question is "Because I want one." (Actually, I'm not interested in guns at all except the Mac 10, the perfect "ladies' gun." )

    This is news to me. I know people that go and they are NOT any sort of racists... in talking about the event none of them ever mentioned to me that there were neo-nazi's at the event. Now possibly they were there IN SMALL NUMBERS and my friends chose to completely ignore them and refuse to acknowlege them.

    YOU implied the whole thing was a KKK event... which is patently false.

    Isn't the guy wearing a German hat also have a USA flag on his sleeve

    comparing Obama to Hitler is an insult of Obama-not a praise for Nazis

    You can go to a given event, and choose to focus on the handful of loonies there... and publish only those pictures that support your desire to portray the whole schmeer as a gathering of loonies, and that is what this article was, a smear job using only those pics that supported the agenda: portraying Knob Creek as a gathering of only racists.

    Some of us know better.

    It would be like going to a massive gay rights rally-taking pictures of a few guys in plastic miniskirts or dance trunks with the words "insert here" on the rear of the trunks and claim those drag queens were representative of 10,000 others

    The Klan comment was factual. Having never been to this event, how is it you know enough to disavow the comments of those who have? How is it that your understanding of this surpasses everyone elses to the level that Photographs, first person accounts, and personal experience is trumped by your opinions?
