    reasonable gun-owners.

    It seems that far too often no distinction has been made between those who like to target shoot and those who gun down our children.

    And that does not serve us or our hopes for gun reform well.

    Reasonable gun owners are walking away from the NRA in droves. I see that as a good thing.

    •  I guess I'm just a pussy. (0+ / 0-)

      And my experience of gun-owners has made me conclude that there is a lot of warped masculinity involved in gun-owning.

        Only you know for sure. Though I hardly think it's appropriate to use such a vulgar, sexist term to describe yourself or anyone else.

        As far as a "warped masculinity" goes, I'd say that occurs no more than in the rest of our society or even here for that matter.

        There are those that love fast cars and chest thumping everywhere. That hardly means all men or car owners or gun owners or even commentators on this site behave that way.

        We can hardly allow the few to define the many. It wouldn't be fair, now would it?
