January 19, 2013 has been declared Gun Appreciation Day.
When I first heard about this, via an email from Ray Carter, Director of Development, at SAF, the first thought that came to mind was, “I really should clean some of my guns.” That is especially true of the ones that I didn’t clean after shooting them months ago. If they were sentient they would appreciate it.
But that isn’t what this is really about. It’s about sending a message to politicians. And some of our politicians really need to get the message.
