Skip to comments.NRA's Keene: Americans Approve of Guns More Than Ever

The greatest accomplishment of supporters of the Second Amendment is the belief that guns are cool, National Rifle Association President David Keene tells Newsmax.TV.
Keene, speaking to Newsmax at CPAC Colorado, said that Americans oppose gun laws and its not just the work of the NRA or of the Supreme Court ruling that the Second Amendment right to bear arms extends to individual Americans.
The greatest accomplishment of the believers of the Second Amendment today over a decade ago or more is that guns are cool, he said. That wasnt the case before.
He noted that after a recent breakfast meeting with members of Congress an intern came up to him and said, Mr. Keene, you dont know how right you are. My sorority, every Friday, we all go out to the range to shoot.
And I said, Young lady, 45 years ago, if I tried to ask out a girl to go to the range and shoot with me, I wouldnt have gotten that date. This is a different America than weve had before.

Guns are cool and shooting is a lot of fun. The anti gun jerks don’t want people to know that. I have taken a few people shooting for their first time and they all had fun.
Ironically, I think this is partly due to Hollywood. They have made such a cult of the gun that, despite their professed hatred for the 2nd Amendment, they have mainstreamed the notion of gun ownership and self defense.

And I own more than I ever have before.
You can never have too many guns or enough ammo.
I believe that. Unfortunately I lost all my guns and ammo in a boating mishap that involved a rabbit chasing me.
I have an idea. Let’s turn this into a spirited gun thread. I’ll go first:
Do Wolf Gold hollow points provide enough expansion to tame the over-penetration problem inherent in 7.62×25mm Tokarev rounds and make a CZ-52 a safe and effective self defense pistol?
Which is why savvy politicians are going after shooting ranges and bullets via the EPA. You can have your gun, we’ll keep the bullets and the practicing.
Some of those girls are a little scary when handling the gun at the line but they'll learn :)
They don't look bored, that's for sure!
