I hope I’m not one of the gun nuts you were referring to, Jim. I asked the question just because I thought the advocacy of any requirements was out of character for the NRA crowd. The second amendment is pretty far down on my list of amendments I’m concerned about. The protection of the first and the forth thru the eighth being more of a priority in my opinion. If those rights are to be protected they are going to be protected by an educated, rational, involved and enlightened electorate not by a hoard of guns in your home. No matter how many you have, the government is going to have you out-gunned.

I’ve acquired by happenstance and inheritance more guns than I need. Most of them stuck in a closet collecting dust. I’ve had a few gun fetish friends lecture me on the importance joining the NRA for it’s efforts to keep arms in the hands of the citizens. I always explain to them that if the government decided to confiscate guns, they’d be smart to start with the NRA membership list. So I’d prefer not to be on it.

Just to be clear, Jim, I agree with you.
