14. ok...
I watched the video. I'm not against teaching gun safety, I grew up around guns, I was taught how to shoot a gun. I'm a firm believer in the 2nd amendment. I do, however have trust issues when you add wingers + NRA + children. I don't trust the wingers one little bit, and as far as I'm concerned they'd try and push their agenda by any means necessary.

I won't apologize for thinking the extreme right (which I think McConnell is) are sneaky, bastids that will do anything to further their agenda.
