That really was a positive piece - surprising for a mainstream media outlet like ABC.   I'll take it!  Huzzah!   :~

I don't know if you noticed, but there was one negative comment below the article - that person was quickly set straight (not by me - I have no idea who the posters are).   This is what Appleseed is all about -  educating the public about our history, heritage and why the 2nd amendment is #2 and not, say, #12.   Learning how to more effectively use the rifles we own helps not only make us better marksmen but also helps us understand the role they played in shaping this nation. 

Great job, Jerry!   O0
