I have liked guns for as long as I can remember. I have been fascinated by the history, the technology, their role in history and their place in American tradition.

While I don’t make a big deal about it, I don’t hide the fact that I own firearms. I also don’t make excuses for owning them or for belonging to the NRA.

The one thing I refuse to do is be cowed by people who don’t like them and demand that I yield to their preferences.

There are at least 80 million American gun owners. We don’t need to push it on anyone but we don’t need to hide it.
