I'm glad one of the government museums has kept to its mission. Harper's Ferry has been gutted, with only two small areas with seven guns on exhibit, one of which is an Italian-made repro and another a Remington. The rest has been turned into an exhibit on slavery. Odd, in a way, because in spite of John Brown, that part of Virginia was not a slave-holding area.

The Smithsonian firearms exhibit is now only military weapons and is buried behind a huge exhibit on the internment of Japanese and Japanese-Americans in WWII.

According to the current administration, guns played no part in our history and should never be seen even in museums. Of course, our "chillun" must be kept from the sight of evil.
