STOP GunBans or Else
GunBans are put forward by anti-gun people whose minds are locked on staying ignorant. Their understanding of the use of handguns or any gun is filtered through their ignorance. Usually, nothing you say will penetrate. In most situations they will not allow themselves to see the positive side of a gun issue. If and when you can start up a civil conversation they will likely start with and I quote "what do you need a gun for". You can take many directions with an opener like that. Keep in mind, people don't easily change their minds and the come-backs they can verbally offer are endless. The best results will come from a visual. Possibly when shown the positive aspects of shooting through an educational experience their negatives will seem miniscule. For the most part they just won't take the time to educate themselves on topics they see as outdated, unsafe and harmful to the environment. "All those lead bullets! OH! good heavens". As for me, I have started many conversations of this type with, "I haven't found too many human endeavors that are 100%". Then take-em by the hand and take them to the range.
The anti-gun people can't understand how young people can learn responsibility when involved in shooting sports because they aren't involved. Even the most anti-gun person can see that shooting activities can get a young person off the couch and out of the house. It's hard to handle a gun and a cell phone. TEXTING requires the use of thumbs. Gun-people must start educating the public. People will keep voting for anti-gun politicians until we do. Only when gun people threaten the anti-gun politician's seat at the congressional troth will things change. Hollering at the TV. and Radio will not get it done.
If you invite people out to the local range for an hour or two so they can see shooters having fun, opinions can change. Whether it's sporting clays or a Cowboy match we stand a better chance for a conversion. Ignorance is curable. What do you think?
