I am the reader who thought firing a gun was natural. Actually, I am the reader who still thinks firing a gun is natural.
I am sorry that you learned only one thing from your military service. I find it even more regretful that the only thing you learned was incorrect.
The "gun-obsessed?" It seems to me that you and your ilk are far more obsessed with them than gun owners. You fantasize about them; you fetishize them; you practically foam at the mouth about them.
I will confess, though, you're fun to watch.
