Why a 53-Year-Old Big-City Lawyer Who Has Never Shot a Gun Joined the NRA
I am a 53-year-old lawyer who lives in a trendy neighborhood in a large diverse city with my wife and three kids. I have never owned a gun. In fact, even though I grew up in Louisiana ("Sportsman's Paradise"), I have never even pulled the trigger of any weapon except a BB gun.

Yet, last week, I became a proud member of the NRA for the first time. I did so because the anti-gun hysteria that I've witnessed is dangerous, alarming, and ignores the facts. I've joined the NRA to stand up for them when they are viciously attacked, since the organization is a convenient scapegoat, not a cause of what happened in Florida.

I’m fed up. Here’s what I have discovered.

The left lies about everything. Truth is a liberal value, and truth is a conservative value, but it has never been a left-wing value. People on the left say whatever advances their immediate agenda. Power is their moral lodestar; therefore, truth is always subservient to it. - Dennis Prager

We need more, many more clear thinking Americans like the 53 year old big city lawyer above. I fear that it's going to get a lot worse before it gets better.

My dad always said there was a good lawyer out there somewhere. Now besides Charles I've heard of two.

I once saw a tomestone that read, "Here lies a good man and a lawyer." I was shocked that they put two people in one grave.

The problem with lawyers is that 99% of them give all the rest a bad name. :biggrinjester:

Thank you, Mr. Kantrow.
The fact is that the NRA is an organization the promotes responsible gun ownership and which, to the best of my knowledge has never produced a mass shooter. NRA members have guns for personal protection and/or recreation. The NRA has always supported vigorous prosecution of anyone caught using a gun in a criminal act. This is in contrast to big city leftist politicians... I look forward to advocating on behalf of the NRA to address these issues and make our schools safer.
