Just a few weeks ago, I joined the NRA. The funny thing is in this is that I can’t say I pictured myself doing so just a few years ago…but times have changed. The need to protect our rights to defend ourselves is real…and this need demands our actions to preserve them now. In order to prevail in the current environment of brash emotional responses in favor of gun control, we must stand strong in civility and logic when making our cases to save our rights. After all, the Constitution, statics, and lessons from history support the argument for the right to bear arms. I have also written my lawmakers to let them know how I stand on this issue. I urge you, if you agree, to do the same….
