Many claim and some purport to prove that America is more ideologically polarized than ever before. That may or may not be, but at least anecdotally, the “national conversations” on various issues of he day seem to be more, well, animated. Vitriolic? Nasty? Use your adjective of choice. In any case, from lots of time spent in and around the issue of guns, it certainly seems that the discussion surrounding Americans’ gun rights is more intense that it was only a few short years ago. Still and all, there are those who are convinced a rational, reasonable conversation on the topic without the spittle and burst blood vessels is still possible. Agree?
