I explain that I carry when I am not at school etc. I explain that the media is putting a negative spin on this. I personally have not watched any of the news coverage and wish more people would do the same.
You are doing the right thing by trying to educate your co-workers. Every chance I get to talk about guns in a positive way to non gun people I do it. As far as the news goes, Im no longer watching their garbage. Even so called conservative news people are being sucked in by the liberal media on this and its literally making me sick. Im sure the liberal media hates what happened but it hasnt stopped them from exploiting it to the max to push their anti gun, anti constitution agenda. God Bless.
