“Now, more than ever, good men and women of conscionable moral stature must thoughtfully impose themselves into the national conversation over responsible firearms ownership and use,” notes Randy Lawrence in this issue’s “Wingshooting” column. “More than ever before we must be aware of the image we project in social media and town meetings, in how we represent ourselves when we are out shooting. Never before has grassroots activism in the form of thoughtful recruitment and professional firearms instruction been more urgently needed.”
With our rights to own firearms under a particularly strong microscope now, Randy—like the rest of us should—understands that with rights come responsibilities, which must include ensuring that shooting be portrayed in a positive light. And that the shooting sports not only thrive, they grow.
