The Washington Post, NPR, and the BBC all found it interesting and had nice things to say, but I'd been a bit apprehensive because the "main stream" gun media had, if not ignored it, at least given it a bit of a sideways look. I was concerned that, as much as I'd tried, perhaps I'd come up with slanted results. I heard the directors of Jesus Camp were hoping that their movie would do well among the religious right, but many of them panned it as not being representational -- Oscar nominations aside -- this is not a chair I wanted to be sitting in.
Well, -- I breathed a big sigh of relief yesterday when I saw that Guns & Ammo -- about as "mainstream" as the gun media gets -- gave it a glowing review. Saying, in part:
"Cassidy's genius extends beyond photographic excellence and vividly captures the subjects' personalites as well as their widely differing views on gun ownership."
If "Guns & Ammo" and Wisconsin Public Radio both agree -- we must have done good.
(sorry for all the book related posts lately -- there will be images of England coming up.)
