Pro-gun activist Neal Knox. Knox is a powerful weapon for those who abhor any regulation of firearms. Champion target shooter and former gun journalist, he is considered the most influential voice in the National Rifle Association. He has been called the NRA's "spiritual master." He is a hardliner who believes that the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees the individual an absolute right to keep and bear guns. The Wall Street Journal said "Knox is likely to have a greater impact on the rapidly escalating firefight over gun control than any other individual in America" (October 26, 1993).
