I think he should --
-- Watch the evening news in Atlanta or Jacksonville for 2 weeks.
-- Get a GPS unit, mount it on his dash, and drive to the 'hood. Park and leave his car with the GPS exposed for a minimum of 4 hours.
-- Work nights at a convenience store, pawn shop, or jewelry store for a year.
-- Go see the Orioles play a night game in Baltimore, Maryland, with the stipulation that he not pay for secure parking. There are plenty of spots in alleys or streets a few blocks away.
-- Rent a Mercedes and a Rolex and go shopping at a mall in Hampton, Virginia.
A few life experiences could change his perspective...
In the meantime, we just have to try and be understanding and counter these folks point by point.
this dude lives like 3 or 4 miles from me. IN VRGINIA do you realize just how many gun owners there are in this state? You can't drive down the road without seeing A. Browning Buckmark B, Remington, C. Mossberg, D. Deer hunting, turkey hunting or an NRA sticker.
