> Aren't you an NRA member, too?

I am not now nor have I ever been a member of the NRA, nor have I ever owned a gun of any kind. I once shot a .22 rifle at summer camp, and I did some plinking with my Grandfather's pistol on his farm, as did most boys my age growing up in the rural South. Neither of my parents were members, nor my paternal grandparents, by I think my other grandpa (who was also my great uncle--long story:) was. He was in the Navy, stationed at Pearl Harbor the day it was bombed. He kept his weapons from the war in a display case, and was an avid hunter and target shooter who tried in vain to interest his grandson who was more into playing checkers and dominoes.

Of course, none of that has anything to do with the value of one's arguments or contribution to a discussion group, but I am not the least surprized that you think it does. Nor am I surprized that you would quote an entire page-long posting to add nothing but a 1-line baseless accusation. You might at least try to make your rants entertaining.
