Jennifer asks quite a good question. I'll answer separately for myself, but the Lovely and not-a-gun-nut Mrs. Borepatch said it best.
So, she's not a gun nut, according to her. Me, I think that she is, in the way that counts: she named her SIG.
She also thinks this: Gun rights are Women's rights. Gun rights are Gay rights. Gun rights are a reflection that the citizen is a responsible member of society, not a subject. Gun rights are a statement that we are responsible to take care of ourselves, and not wait for Nanny to save us or our children.
But that's me, for another post.
