and imo, the radical speech and actions will push many normal people away from something, or teach them to fear it. neither is good.
again, i think there is already those who are doing all in their power to paint guns and gun owners as radical and unneeded. i'm sure they all wet themselves with joy when some nut case makes a video threatening violence.
just because someone is uneducated or inexperienced with firearms doesn't mean they hate guns. let's not give these people a reason to hate them. look at how many people, knowing little about guns, rushed to gun stores to buy up guns for fear of a ban.
imo, gun owners have to be the most respectful and responsible to represent the fact that gun ownership, hunting, and shooting sports are both safe and acceptable for all.
