Love of Firearms Unites Those Bush Pardoned

An interesting analysis by the Wall Street Journal found otherwise unnoticed commonalities among the 14 people that President Bush pardoned last week: "Many of them are church-going, blue-collar workers from rural areas (and ardent Bush supporters) who had little trouble finding jobs after their convictions" and firearms played an important role in their lives. At least half of the 14 are former hunters or shooters and five admitted to seeking a pardon to "win back the right to bear arms."
