    Where would this country be w/o firearms? Not displaying/shipping/buying/owning them because they’re ‘scary’ is retarded. Law Enforcement Officers deserve more recognition & this is one way to do that.

    Why not? Museums are a display of history. A history where guns have played a tremendous role.

    I think this is a great way to display firearms throughout history.

    I'm against any bill that encourages the free flow of firearms.

    If the fire arms are a legitimate part of the history why then they ought to be displayed for all to appreciate. On the other hand if they have no relevance then they should not be part of the display.

    Future civilizations will visit firearms museums and react with wonder at how very violent our society must have been before the 2nd Amendment was deleted. 😳 Not really, don’t shoot! Society will always be violent with or without firearms, but a girl can dream. 🕊☺️
