“shooting guns: it’s rather fun, actually”

Begin by reading “Shooting Guns: It’s Rather Fun, Actually,” on pp. 544-545.  Although the author apparently comes to see some gun owners and users in a (more) sympathetic light based on their own experience at the shooting range, there are no kind words for the National Riffle Association (NRA).  How does the author use polling data to level a criticism at the NRA?  How do you see other hot-button issues framed through political affiliation, and how does this stereotyping contribute to political polarization?  (You might check out this article on 13 Misconceptions About Gun Owners (Links to an external site.), which demonstrates that positions on gun ownership may not always be in lines with political affiliation.)
