    It's easy to pile on and say this is a scam.  Of course it is.

    But what's interesting is the scam depends upon not just a love of all things "gun,"  but it explicitly relies on a yearning for a small-town community of people living together -- barbecues, school plays, etc.  We forget at our peril that these impulses -- as opposed to the 'required militia training' -- are legitimate.  It's unfortunate that thieves are using this yearning to propel their scam, but there's a lesson here to learn about things we have in common that we should not fail to learn.
