Yes, it's fine as long as they do it responsibly.
I am a retired firefight, and now am a gallery represented painter. My husband and I have a recording studio, and are "home" to a diverse group of musicians. We also rescue animals. Mostly we are noted for socializing feral animals, and finding homes for animals for them.
We live in the bluffs along the Mississippi river, so I guess we can be concidered "river rats"....LOL
On the political side, we are gun toting Democrats....
