Hysteria over gun ownership has devolved into NRA Derangement Syndrome

There is no better place on earth to be a gun owner than the United States. Let me explain that bit of patriotic fervor; I’m an Air Force veteran and fourth generation military veteran, married to… you guessed it, a veteran. Being pretty open about what is important is a crucial part of being in media, which is why as a radio host I often share that; I’m a Jesus lover, family first chick who proudly supports the NRA as a member and gun owner. Being open and out there with a social media presence was part of the reason that the St. Louis Post Dispatch asked me to “balance their opinion editorial page” by writing a weekly column last fall.

Oregon: Anti-Hunting Organizations Attempt to Hijack Bill

On Monday May 15, the Oregon Senate Committee on Environment and Natural Resources will be voting on House Bill 2525Aand its amendments.  Sponsored by state Representative Knute Buehler (R-54), HB 2525A would modify the requirements for game meat to be donated to charitable organizations.  The NRA applauds such programs, as it is another way for hunters to contribute to the needy in their communities by providing them access to lean, nutritious game meat at minimal cost to the charitable organization.  In addition, it ensures that game meat obtained through wildlife management culls and seized by law enforcement from poachers is not wasted.
