I’ve taken a lot of people shooting. Most were shooters. Some were newbies. Two were rabid antis, as opposed to civilian gun ownership as I am to watching another episode of Fairly Odd Parents. The shooters were delightful and delighted. The newbies emerged from their immersion born-again ballistic ‘bro’s. The antis remained antis. Obviously, this failure is anecdotal, and doesn’t include dozens of antis who declined my invitation to get to grips with their gripe. But it’s been my impression that people promoting gun control are insensible to evidence contradicting their idée fixe. There’s only one thing that can change their mind and it ain’t you. A close encounter with criminal violence. Am I wrong? Have you ever turned an anti?
