Well said 4th. I had let my NRA membership slip... well now I am a lifetime member in good standing!
I found it odd that one of the things I read about starting the gun control debate was that "the gun people" will say that the gun control advocates are "bathing in the blood of the innocent to push their agenda". I read that on an online news posting.
So they KNOW that is what they are doing and trying to make it sound like we are trying to make them look bad for even starting the discussion!
"We are not the enemy"... how true.
