To say that "libtards" are incapable of understanding is an insult to both ends of the political spectrum. I know plenty of poeple who are left of center who are in favor of gun rights. Not always all of them, but of gun rights in general. Many of them have been persuaded to be even more in favor with discussion.

The "If you do not agree with me, then you are too stupid to live/understand/etc" does far more damage than anything the Brady Bunch and their ilk can do. People, on both sides, get very agitated whe they are called stupid.
being nice to sarah brady isnt gonna make her see the point. im referring mainly to changing their message. rip the sheet they hide behind away. playing nice paddy cake with marxist socialist has gotten us mccain bush pelosi obama swarzeneger.

im sorry im just really fed up with taking the high road as all it does is skyline you as a target. im not the most fluent person in the world with making cute phrases like jeff cooper does.

when you do something for 40+ years and all its done is gotten machine guns banned assault weapons banned handguns banned and our rights erroded its time to change the playbook. maybe im wrong but i do KNOW that what we been doing is getting us no where.

my wife is a ex-hippie who never held a gun in her life till we met. now she wants nothing to do with liberals or democrats who want to take her handguns.

maybe supporting gun friendly TV is an answer. things like top shot and maybe that new sons of guns if it isnt another OCC rehash.

Sure, I have need for a carry gun for PERSEC, but most of us here on this forum have a variety of guns because THEY ARE FUN.

My ultra lib sister-in-law was visiting us last year. She never shot a firearm in her life. I took her down to my range, gave her the safety lecture and let her shoot a .22. She had a blast! Her whole attitude about guns changed! 20 minutes with a 22 autoloader and a confirmed Boston Marxist discovered the FUN of shooting.

Next time you go to the range, invite a lib.
This exactly they type of stuff I am talkig about.

This is just one of the ways to educate (not re-educate) people.

Thanks for the nice vignette.
