Guns Get The Glitz In VA

The National Rifle Association has opened its National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, Virginia. Governor Jim Gilmore attended the opening celebration. According to the NRA, the museum traces the historical significance of firearms in the United States. Firearms certainly have made their mark on U.S. history, and we look forward to the exhibits on JFK, Martin Luther King, Jr., Robert Kennedy, Malcolm X, Huey Long, William McKinley, James Garfield, and Abraham Lincoln that this new museum will certainly present.
