America as a gun culture…

AR-15

“The AR-15 is today’s musket”

~ says David R. Keene NRA president…

The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution:

“A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security
of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear
arms, shall not be infringed.”

The automobile, like the gun, is a lethal instrument, and the states have recognized it as such by requiring that each driver as well as each car must be registered and that each driver must meet certain specified qualifications. It is mildly inconvenient to conform, but no one seriously objects to the general principle, as gun lobbyists do to gun registration… American legislators have been inordinately responsive to the tremendous lobby maintained by the National Rifle Association, in tandem with gunmakers and importers… One must wonder how grave a domestic gun catastrophe would have to be in order to persuade us. How far must things go?
