Not sure where to post this but, today was the first time I ever got into a serious gun control debate. Sadly it was with my grandparents. They said I was paranoid for having guns incase the government went crazy or some other government attacks us. I told them I just realize that this could happen but they insisted I was paranoid. We discussed other stuff including what they kept referring to as "assault weapons" I don't think I can change their thoughts no matter what. Sorry if this is in the wrong place and move it if necessary.

Im pretty sure the jews in 1935 didnt think they would be shoved into hitler's ovens in less than a decade after he took their guns away either.

Thats the argument i like to use on gun grabbers

It is hard to have a rational discussion with someone who thinks the 2nd Amendment is about duck hunting and insists governments are benevolent dictators. Who did she grow up with knowing had gone to war (Father, Uncle, etc) and were they fighting or was it just paranoia? Perhaps you are young and they are part of the stoner-generation so facts and history don't matter!?

You, sir, have encountered the "powdered butt" syndrome. It is difficult to take serious advice from anyone whose butt you have ever powdered.

Good to see I'm not alone it does suck that they wont listen no matter what facts and logic I used. I am young but this is the one subject I know a lot on so at least I was prepared.

That was his point-----
They got the point finally though-as the cattle prods ran them into the gas chambers. Sadly that's what it will take w people like the OPs grandparents. That is a very sad fact bout America today.

I'm surprised, I'd have thought more people of their vintage would be more into, or at least understanding or tolerant of guns. But my family, (with a few exceptions), is the same way, including the wife.
