You are right on in your comments about the NRA and their supporters. We get the same crap in Canada as well, more actually because what happens is more visible to Americans what may like our gun laws. That being said, if I was living full time in the US, where there are probably more guns than citizens floating around, I would be inclined to have one in my house and without question in rural areas. Rural would apply for me in Canada if I were to move to a rural area.
