Gun Control Opposition

President Barack Obama unveiled the most ambitious gun-control agenda in decades, announcing a $500 million package of legislative proposals and executive actions aimed at curbing firearms violence, from mass shootings to street crime. He and his congressional allies face strong opposition, particularly in the Republican-run House, to his legislative proposals. The National Rifle Association, the biggest lobby for gun owners and makers, has vowed to fight any new limits.

Award-winning, British-born photographer Charles Ommanney spent some time at the NRA's annual meeting in Houston, where the slogan was "Happiness Is a Warm Gun." Take a look at American gun culture through his eyes.
