  •  I had a couple of great conversations today (2+ / 0-)

    One with my daughter who started out as totally anti-gun and moved to pro hunter and private gun owner but still very insistent that there will never be guns in her home and is generally pro more gun regulation.

    The second with my best friend who immigrated here from Germany. Still has issues with the concepts of rights vs privilege when it comes to guns. (Ya'll know the conversations guns vs cars...right vs privilege). Still she understands that having a gun is a right declared in the Constitution.

    And me, an RKBA member who is very protective of all the rights in the Constitution including the 2nd. None of us are gun owners and all of us were in agreement on two points. We were happy with what the Pres. proposed for the most part and that we need to look into what it is that makes us such a violent country.

    I take that general agreement of three people coming from three very different points on the scale as a really good sign that we are doing something right here.

    Just wanted to share.
