The young lady — disappointingly on the right — is against guns. Surprise! She’s never touched one. I can relate. Thanks to my anti-gun Mom, “gun free” liberal community and Quaker school, the first real gun I touched was an Uzi machine gun at an Atlanta gun range, fired in my first year out of college. Big fun! But it wasn’t until I got to grips with a pistol — a Browning Buckmark — that I “got it.” I suddenly understood that I was in control of the gun. That it was entirely up to me what it did and didn’t do. And that I was responsible enough to be responsible with it (i.e. safe). I know that sounds weird, but we’re talking about overcoming decades of indoctrination. Do you remember the first time you shot a gun? How old were you? What was your initial reaction? Were you safe?
