I am a gun owner and have a concealed handgun permit. I do not think our governing body is trying to take my guns away from me. However, the National Rifle Association would like for me and you to believe otherwise.
If the NRA would return to its original reason for existing, we could have much better national dialogues about guns in general, specific types of guns, gun magazines, ammunition and gun safety. Prior to 1977, these, along with marksmanship, were the concerns of the NRA.
