57. And some people wonder why Dem and indie gun owners feel alienated from the party?

I have a B.A. and some graduate work in English and literary criticism (had to drop out of grad school when my son was born with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome), and I work as a technical writer in the aviation industry. I am also a casual competitive shooter (USPSA pistol and carbine), e.g. one of the uneducated morons you decry. My sister is an engineer and has a carry license, though she doesn't shoot competitively. Believe what you want, but it takes income to be a gun enthusiast, and a disproportionate number of us work in STEM fields.

I'd be interested in what data you think supports your generalization. Most polls don't show much difference between postgrads and "some college", and both groups are more likely to own guns than people who only have high school diplomas.
