HOLLISTON, MA - JANUARY 23: John J. Bonner learns how to load and unload a semi-automatic handgun with fake ammunition during a private basic firearms safety class at Mass Firearms School, on January 23, 2013 in Holliston, Massachusetts. The laser gun helps students learn how to aim and hold a weapon. Bonner, a retired firefighter, says: 'I am not a gun nut. I don't belong to the NRA...I want to maintain my 2nd amendment rights.' The class costs $100 and is required before getting a permit to have a gun in the state. Students learn about gun laws and gun safety and also get an opportunity to shoot a few different types of firearms on the indoor shooting range. Massachusetts is one of the few states that require a license just to own a gun. (Photo by Melanie Stetson Freeman/The Christian Science Monitor via Getty Images)
