Armed and opinionated! America's gun owners like you have never seen them as they speak out in four-year photography project

They have the right to bear arms, and these Americans are never going to let anyone take it away.

Some of the leading gun enthusiasts in the country have been interviewed and photographed over four years for a new book God, Guns & Guts by Ben Philippi.

The photographer asked his subjects - who range from families and their teenage children to more traditional male gun enthusiasts - to pose with their favorite firearms and explain why they hold them so dear.

And the result is a fascinating cross section of the country's gun owners who will never give up the right to defend themselves, whether it be from violent criminals or threats to their own personal freedom.

I have been saying it since 1980, all the NRA wants is your money. They have the man power but won't organize to win. It would cut off their monetary funds,

Go ahead and keep sending them the money. This conflict could have been resolved years ago with some guts but the NRA just wants the money. You could be saving the money for guns and ammo but now with all the time that has passed and the militarized police forces and advanced weapons that can be used against the gun owner the cost of winning will be a lot higher.

I blame it all on the Y Generation who support Obama and his gun control and everything else Obama does. At least I can understand minorities liking Obama. But the Y Generation are just totally clueless.

We must do more than just talk about it. If the government declares martial law we must fight back with all we've got!

Why did the fascist STAR NEWS delete post #11? What did they not like about #11. They are in bed with the GUN GRABBERS and those who hate the CONSTITUTION AND THE 2nd AMENDMENT.
What say you..........STAR NEWS?
