Even with guns, all politics is local

New Orleans (CNN) - In a small gun range 20 minutes outside New Orleans, a steady stream of gun enthusiasts fill the air with the scent of gunpowder and the sharp bang of shots.

Many of the customers - a range of ex-military men, off-duty law enforcement officers and a sprinkling of women learning how to handle a firearm for self-protection - said they have grown up around guns and are leery of interference by the federal government on gun rights.

    Do you play politics at local level, or work for the good of the people? Do not entertain politics. Work for the passage of Gun-control laws. Bill of rights on second amendment is BS. Pass gun-control. In fact gun-ban is much more better for USA,,,

    While we are paying this much attention to DC the red states are taking away human and civil rights one giant step at a time at the local level.
