I've never been happy with being called a "Gun Owner". Yes, I possess firearms. I also possess power tools and other things, but does that mean I should be categorized as a "Power Tool Owner". Or a Car Owner? The term "Gun Owner" these days is quite often used against us, as if possessing a firearm somehow makes us "Bad Guys". So I've decided that I'll no longer accept being called a "Gun Owner". After much thought, I've concluded that "Freedom Owner" is really what I am, if others insist on categorizing me. My reasoning for this is that Freedom is what I value most. I went to war for it, shed blood for it, and in my opinion that gives me the right to claim some portion of ownership of it. Ownership of something also carries the responsibility to ensure it's proper use, maintenance, and function. Firearms help to serve that purpose.
