Well put, Mitchell.


>>Why should everything be explained? Is it not acceptable to have some 
mystery or vagueness to the image? 
If a person documents an event or group, does that imply he or she is a 
"blank" nut? 
It is fair to not like the photo but I think it's unfair to assume anyone's 
position on firearms or other topics just on the basis that they took a 
photo of it.
