The Appalachian clan is notorious for criminal activity and reckless, larger-than-life characters. They tap-dance, shoot and stab people (including each other), and sell (and do) a lot of drugs. Think "Sopranos" meets "Coal Miner's Daughter."
When we talk about gun owners, as Guy Ohki pointed out, instead of "law-abiding" we should say "innocent." Yet, I don't suppose anyone would call these folks either law-abiding or innocent. But they're not inner city gangbangers either.
When folks talk about 80 million gun owners, you know in that way they have of trying to say there are that many who are innocent and stick together on gun rights issues, these rural characters must be included.
That's some fine company the pro-gun people are keeping.
