Larry Pratt is Executive Director of Gun Owners of America.

The debate regarding whether people should be allowed to own guns is a hot issue because you’re dealing with the personal property and personal safety of many Americans. Unfortunately, as Larry discusses, there are those on the other side who have a seemingly animistic view regarding guns, treating them as though they have a life of their own concerning where and when they fire.

Things are heating up as Vice President Joe Biden has suggested that President Obama is considering unilateral action on gun control by executive order in lieu of congressional action. Larry called this “the talk of a dictator” who feels the idea that there are constitutional restraints is simply not acceptable. He believes the administration is getting bolder because they don’t have to stand for re-election.
