This infographic begins with an incorrect premise. Early on it begins "And given that neither is an avid shooter.…" The 2nd amendment is not about shooting or hunting. It is about protection and defense. We have a right to defend ourselves (individually) and to defend our country from tyranny collectively. I am an avid Romney supporter, but I'm not certain Romney sees this discrepancy. His rhetoric does not indicate a belief in the core purpose of the 2nd amendment. I'm not a raving gun slinger. I hadn't even shot my own gun for about 30 years. Recently, my boy wanted to start learning so I've pulled them out. But I don't keep a gun or guns for hunting. I keep them because of the 2nd amendment. Maybe I'll also go hunting.
