The NRA lies for the profit of its real constituency: the manufacturers and sellers. Meanwhile, fools spread fear about “orders” and loss of freedom. On this day of service, many strut with guns.
Like most Americans, I believe the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. We have a strong tradition of gun ownership in this country, and the vast majority of gun owners act responsibly.
But I also believe most gun owners agree that we can respect the Second Amendment while keeping an irresponsible, law-breaking few from causing harm on a massive scale. That’s what these reforms are designed to do.
