And who would have guessed it from the accusatory headline, What’s an Olivette man doing running pro-gun website?:
Sitting inside a Starbucks, sipping black coffee, joking with the baristas, Dan Zimmerman doesn’t look like a gun guy.
He looks like a guy who might work in accounts receivable, which is what this Olivette resident did for years. He is 53, balding, wearing tortoise shell glasses, carrying a little extra weight and dressed in the beige tones of business casual. He smiles easily. He is working on a laptop at a back table.
He also might be packing heat. Could be his .38 snubby. Maybe his Kahr 9 mm. He won’t say.
“I really don’t talk about that,” he says.
No word on whether the journalist asked to see it or hold it.
No word on what the journalist thinks a gun guy looks like, but I suspect its informed by the film version of Winter’s Bone.
