From what I've seen there is pro-gun, and anti-gun, and not much in between. Also not much defecting to the other side. The fact that those people don't have an adequate answer to your question is usually not something to make them really think. REALLY think.

I would like to hear a story(s) about how an anti-gun person had a close call, or was robbed, or something, and became pro-gun. A true story......anyone got one?

I'll start, sorry, closest I can come: My cousin's wife, who as far as I know, was/is on the fence about the subject, almost got carjacked one Saturday night. They live close to us, in a small town. 2 guys tried to get into her car, fortunately, she drove off. Now she sort of has an interest in guns. I keep offering to take them out shooting, but so far they haven't come.......

As I've pointed out many times, people who push gun control think the government has sole responsibility for certain things. They want the government to be responsible for our safety and the Statists in government want the citizenry to be reliant on them so they also push that same meme.

Gun owners represent people who don't rely on the state for their own protection. That is unacceptable to both sides, the reliant on those that want to be relied on. For those that want to have the control, the gun owners represent people who do not believe they need the State for everything. For the reliant, it is a slap in their face to think that they might be wrong that only the State can protect them.

I know "protection from tyranny" has been a popular theme for gun owners lately, but really the debate is so much simpler than that.

I listened to Hannity today coming home from work. He had a lib on there who answered every question that we needed registration, backround checks and no magazine over 10 round.

One of the other callers kept asking him would he put a gun free zone sign on his house. He dodged and dodged that one.

Hannity asked what he would do if someone was breaking into his house, and he would not answer that either.

Typical of what I find out when the libs at my office start babbling.

Tell them they should buy a shotgun but they don't really have to shoot anyone. If someone breaks in just run to the porch and discharge the shotgun in the air, this will make the bad guy run away.

Uncle Joe said so.

My dumba$$ professional student hippy sisters always hot me with the So you think it's OK to own a tank? I cna only reply I can do that now. Yet somehow I have refrained from it...Being they are REALLY expensive to buy and maintain.
They have a pretty good idea what I have here in the house and I remind them that somehow I have been able to fight off the desire to climb the clock tower and become the next news sensation. Because..As we know if you have a firearm you are required to go cruckin frazy and go no a rampage. Though if it was a school full of people like my sisters I can understand the desire...I wont condone it..Just understand it...

Actually, the Founders discussed this very issue - it's in the Federalist Papers. They wanted the citizens to have the same guns as were the issue weapons of soldiers in a modern infantry. Soldiers in 1776 were each issued muskets, but not the large field pieces with exploding shells. Today, soldiers are issued M4s, M249s, etc. but not howitzers and atomic bombs. Furthermore, according to your logic, the laws governing freedom of the press are only valid for newspapers whose presses are hand-operated and use fixed type. After all, no one in 1776 foresaw offset printing or electricity, let alone TV and satellite transmission.
