Quite often, gun owners are their own worst enemies. Instead of "sticking together", they marginalize each other. The duck hunters don't like the competitive shooters with the "black rifles" so they have no problem with restrictions placed on them. The competitive shooters don't like the machine gun crowd (yes, there are many legal machine gun owners in the USA) so they don't care about further restrictions on them. An attack on ONE is an attack on ALL. Let's stick together!

Over the past week, I've witnessed a disturbing outbreak of off-the-rails hatred toward gun owners and Second Amendment groups. Whatever your views on guns, we can all agree: The Newtown gunman was a monster who slaughtered his own mother, five heroic educators...
