The photo is of Scott Middle School. The flag is at half-mast because our nation is in mourning. When I bought my first shotgun it was 1959 and this school was called Scott Senior High School.My first shotgun was a side-by-side 12 gauge. I sanded the stock "raised the grain" and coated it with linseed oil. I think I learned how from an article in the National Rifle Association's "American Rifleman". I bought the shotgun used, as is. When I fired one barrel the action opened about an 1/8 inch and I needed to snap it shut to fire the next barrel. That took too long for a second shot so in practice it was a single shot gun.
Now a days being an NRA member is about the same as being a John Birch Society member. The NRA has become an extremist organization. I think it began to change after the Civil Rights Act, Nixon's "Southern Strategy" and all that. The NRA became an arm yourself to protect your daughters from the "black menace" organization. So the NRA is basically a racist organization.
