It may well be that Winslow has the qualifications and background to succeed in the public medical field. He might even have still found himself quietly tucked away somewhere else within the vast government medical bureaucracy, had he simply waited out the news cycle and bided his time. Instead, he decided to further insult the president and reaffirm his opposition to Americans’ Second Amendment rights in the pages of the Washington Post.

A member of the group New Yorkers Against Gun Violence (NYAGV) recently penned a newspaper opinion piece on the upcoming deadline for recertifying handgun licenses in New York State. Titled, “Gun recertification a step for safety, not confiscation,” the writer ridicules New York State handgun owners as being “‘up in arms’ again over the fact that they have to recertify” their eligibility to possess a handgun. For “too many gun owners,” he adds, “any gun safety legislation is wrong, viewed as the camel’s nose in the tent of gun confiscation.” He concludes by expressing his disgust at what he calls “…the mindless fealty to the NRA and its affiliates’ spin that all gun laws are unconstitutional and will lead to confiscation. There are 300 million guns in our country; do the math. No one is coming for your guns.” Every person is entitled to his or her own opinion, of course, but facts are a different matter.

That is, licenses are reserved for the well-connected and officials don’t bother to follow the rules when issuing them.
The NRA prides itself on being “freedom’s safest place,” and its members exemplify what is best about our beloved country. A pair of recent national surveys on patriotism bears out what many instinctively understand: that for those who embrace traditional American values, the NRA remains an important cultural touchstone in its own right. Meanwhile, the surveys also show Americans strongly embracing the right to keep and bear arms, including younger adults for whom other traditional aspects of patriotism are less central to their identity.
