Gun owners are quite often their own worst enemies. I have heard duck hunters say,"why would anyone NEED a "black rifle"? Duck hunters don't care about the rights of the rest of the gun owners AS LONG AS THEY HAVE THEIRS. The same goes for the pistol owners that don't care about machine gun enthusiasts. (Yes, there are many legally owned machine guns in the USA). Message to ALL gun owners--an attack on ONE is an attack on ALL.
It would be wise for the NRA to remind its members of this.
