I agree that law-abiding, freedom-loving, gun owners, here, in the U.S. are facing challenges with respect to our rights and freedoms, from Obama's leftist-socialist administration, that's one of the MAJOR raison d'etre's for the NRA.
However, I disagree, rather staunchly, with ignorance and virulent racism expressed here. The ignorance and racism expressed detract EVERYTHING from whatever arguments may have been presented.
Having spent 40 years of my 62 LIVING in Canada... out in that awful redneck province of Alberta... my impression of Canadians, in general, was one of them being kind, polite, and reasonably open-minded.
What I've read here tends to crush that impression... although I AM intelligent enough to realize that in any barrel there have to be a few ROTTEN apples...
