Gun owners, speak out

I’m speaking out as a lifetime gun owner. I grew up on a farm in New York state. I started shooting at age 7, and by age 10 I was hunting squirrels and rabbits alone with a .22. My family and friends did lots of hunting and plinking. I read “The Shooters Bible” religiously. I developed a lifelong love of the outdoors and guns. I own many guns today including three that were my father’s guns. I’ve taught both my daughters to shoot safely. When I was growing up there were no “assault rifles,” no violent, graphic “first-person shooter” video games. We hunted birds after school, and the most violent acts on TV and in the movies involved Gene Autry shooting the bad guys. The problem today is not just a gun problem but a complex societal problem.
