The recent article on your site, Countering the Myths: Notes From a Foot Soldier in the Fight for Gun Rights,” was one that I very much enjoyed. I especially enjoyed it considering the fact that I was once a pro gun control advocate myself at one point. It wasn’t the proudest period of my life looking back on it, but thankfully I’ve seen the light. Still, these articles are very helpful for those of us who are pro gun rights and try their best to have an open discussion with those on the other side. It’s too often that these discussions quickly lead to name calling and flared tempers, particularly when debating with those who simply can’t be swayed . . .
To prove that not everyone on the anti-gun side is a lost cause, I thought you may be interested in seeing this YouTube video. Although we may not be able to convert the “hard core gun control activist”, there are still those who can be swayed with accurate facts, a calm demeanor, and even some actual range time.
