The best way to move the argument is through rational facts and discussion when possible, as well as explaining the sporting aspects of firearms as well as the basic human right of self defense. I used to work with a guy back in the early 90's in St Louis that was vehemently opposed to civilian firearm ownership. Don grew up in a bad neighborhood, and didn't understand why a lot of us at work had so many guns. In his mind, they were only for killing people.

After multiple declined offers to go to the range with us, he was with me at our mutual friend Brian's house. It was in a rural area, and we had brought out my AR, 1911, an AK47, an SKS and a 12 gauge. After a safety briefing and a basic skills overview, we talked him into trying a rifle. He hit the target on the first shot and smiled. As the day dragged on, he shot everything we brought out. By day's end, his opinion had changed. Within a month, he had a Mossberg pump 12, a Beretta 9mm and a whole new opinion about firearms.

If you have a friend that's on the fence and you are responsible and proficient yourself, offer to show them what it's about. Let them see and understand that it's no more than a tool, and that it's not inherently evil. A good part of this war will have to be won or lost on a person-to-person level, since the media's already in the bag for the other side.

I'm not trying to disparage anything that supports our second amendment rights. I just want to make sure that whatever we do doesn't give the opposition more ammo, pun intended.
Beautifully handeled.. Alot of people are on the fence about gun control because they have never really been around them, and they are scared of them... Often times taking the mystery out is the best deal..

I am certain the media would LOOOVE to cover this story. It would probably be a national story for all the wrong reasons.

i choose who i hunt with on the same basis...having a hunting license and a gun does not mean i am going to hunt with someone.
this is not something i would participate in.

This was a concern of mine too.. Many people claim to be profecient, yet when you actually watch them its easy to tell they are an accident waiting to happen. If I ever take a newbie shooting: A there is only 1 newbie, and B If they do not follow my instructions perfectly I will remove my weapon from their possesion and have them sit and wait until we are done.
Quite frankly being around 20+ people I dont know with guns would def make me nervous. (being as idk who if any of these people have the slightest clue what they are doing.)

We did and have a stretch of 362 in between 529 between Brookshire and 290. We'll be posting up another cleanup sometime in the next couple of months but sorry, I'm not comfortable leading a group with weapons.....

My thought's would be a charity style ride. You show up to a roped off area where a LEO would safety check and put a zip tie through the action of your rifle, sign in and pay $5-$10 and get a wrist band to keep track who is actually in you're group. Have a ride leader and a safety officer tell everyone the rules. No handling firearms unless in designated areas and such. Have a LEO escort front and rear...Have a Great charity to donate the money too. Children's cancer association or something
