Chris Cheng, Season 4 winner of the History Channel’s “Top Shot” competition, came out on RecoilWeb.com today as “gay for guns.” Cheng writes on his website:
One reason why I chose to come out publicly is that I’m a gay guy in a gun world. Hunters, sport shooting enthusiasts, and collectors are too often stereotyped as part of efforts to politicize guns as we witnessed last week on the anniversary of the horrific Newtown tragedy. Take it from someone who in a single package is not only gay, but Chinese, Japanese, California-born, a college graduate, a tech geek who worked on cool Google projects, a gun enthusiast and a passionate 2nd Amendment advocate. Our community is as diverse as anyone’s.
Cheng has found plenty of support on Twitter.
