I Am A White Gun Owner, And I Hate The NRA

For those of you who have followed my writing for a while, it’s no secret that I am a white liberal gun owner who lives in the South. I owned my first gun at a very early age, as did many other people in the rural part of Virginia where I grew up. This may […]
