Usually associated and known for their single-shot bolt-action 50 BMG rifles, Noreen released the Bad News series of rifles a couple of years ago, patterning them around the AR-15/AR-10. However, they went up on the caliber department; the Bad News is available in 30-06, .300 Win Mag and .338 Lapua Magnum. Although they drew in a lot of interest, they appear to be plagued by quality control and reliability issues. Ironic choice of name. (GRH)
I have told Noreen’s story in the form of a lecture a number of times. Invariably, someone comes up to me and says, “She can’t be retarded.” A flat statement. Usually, they then turn and walk away, discounting everything. As if what happened to her is then not relevant.
Let me say that this attitude is bigotry, pure and simple. What is being said is that disabled people can’t be wise. What is being said is that wisdom is the domain of the privileged. White. Educated. Male. BUNK! Wisdom touches whomever it chooses. And it chooses all. If one takes a careful look at what Noreen knows, one will find a wisdom not contained in books, not taught in classrooms and not obscured by linguistic elegance. Yes, Noreen is wise. Yes, she is disabled. I fail to see the contradiction.
