Gun Country

NYT today with two expansive takes on guns.  They post upcoming magazine piece by Robert Draper on the power of the NRA.  And also on their site: a major special project, words and graphis, on America's fascination with firearms (I guess to mark anniverasary of Sandy Hook massacre).    Personal and varied stories.   Funeral director.  Woman whose father owns a gun store.  Competitive rifle shooter.  Guns on the street.  Young hunter.  "They bring families together and tear them apart. They kill innocent people and protect them. The United States continues to love and revile its hundreds of millions of firearms. Here is a look at that complicated relationship, told through the personal stories of Americans."
