We’ve noted Steven Crowder’s ‘I’m Pro-Gun: Change My Mind’ efforts in the past. The Canadian expat and conservative commentator sets up a table and a few cameras on a college campus, advertises his pro-gun stance and then opens himself up to all comers. The ensuing exchanges go pretty much as you’d expect. He talks calmly and rationally to ill-informed students whose only knowledge about guns and the laws surrounding them is based on what they feel and the last thing they heard Trevor Noah or Samantha Bee spout on TV.
Now, in his latest video, Crowder takes two of the students he’d talk to on campus out to a local range to learn and actually experience those things about which they’ve formed so many fact-free opinions.
As so many gun owners already know, the fastest way to convince a hoplophobe or a firearms fence-sitter is to put a firearm in his or her hand. As you’ll see from Crowder’s video, being presented with facts and the reality of gun ownership dispels much of the blather that the media and the civilian disarmament industrial complex would have non-gun owners believe.
So for his tireless efforts to dispel the media-driven myths and political film-flammery surrounding firearms, Steven Crowder is our Gun Hero of the Day.
