Steve Lee – the gun-toting Australian made famous by YouTube – didn’t set out to cause a ruckus. The son of a preacher, Steve grew up fascinated by firearms “and other things that go ‘boom.’” One night, around a campfire, the lifelong musician struck up a song. “I wanted to sing about how much I like guns, even if others find them unnecessary,” he told NRAblog.
Steve and his wife Tracey are in the U.S. visiting friends and family. They found their way to NRA HQ in Fairfax, VA, earlier this week for a tour of the NRA National Firearms Museum, time on the range with American Rifleman’s Mark Keefe, and exclusive access to Museum Director Jim Supica's safes.
Cam Edwards of NRA News even dropped in for the chance to interview Steve. Pictured at right, Cam, Supica, and Steve smile for Phil Schreier's camera.
