The NRA Mom is Determined

The July Issue of NRA's America's First Freedom features this article written by world champion shooter and Team Smith and Wesson captain Julie Golob.  Golob is a veteran, author, shooter, and mom of two. She writes about Bloomberg's efforts to use " emotional manipulation" to create gun phobia and avoidance.   Golob then lays out some important facts:
The number of privately owned guns in the U.S. is at an all-time high, upwards of 300 million, and is rising by about 10 million per year.  Meanwhile, the firearm accident death rate has fallen to an all-time low, 0.2 per 100,000 population, down 94 percent since the all-time high in 1904. Since 1930, the annual number of firearm accident deaths has decreased 81 percent, while the U.S. population has more than doubled and the number of firearms has quintupled.  Among children, such deaths have decreased 89 percent since 1975. Today, the odds are a million to one against a child in the U.S. dying in a firearm accident. 
Golob is the type of personality we want as an advocate for our rights and the NRA is smart to promote and feature her in it's publications and outreach material.  Her face was featured on a huge banner at this year's Annual Meeting.  Soft spoken and professional, she quietly makes her case for why women (and all Americans) should have the right to keep and bear arms, and why those so-called "commonsense" solutions are not so commonsense after all. 
Golob completes the piece with this:
The NRA Mom is determined. She understands the all-important role she serves in her children’s lives. She teaches her children firearm safety at all ages. She instills a sense of self-worth and encourages her young ones to reach their full potential.
Most of all, the NRA Mom stands up for freedom—and the Second Amendment rights that guarantee all of our other freedoms. 
It's a great article.
