Former Montana Secretary of State and State Senate president Bob Brown owns 20 guns.
His enthusiasm for firearms is more than a private hobby. As state legislator, was he was honored with a commendation from the NRA for his support of gun rights.
"The trouble," he argues in an opinion piece in the Sydney Herald, "is the modern NRA, like other time-honored institutions, has become hijacked and radicalized."
He tells The Takeaway how the NRA has changed, what he believes the fight ahead over gun control legislation, and why he's considering leaving the organization.
