HAVE YOU TAKEN A GUN-HATER SHOOTING?
Lots of controversy over Ashland's proposal to prohibit open carry in public, require gun storage, other rules. I wonder if it wouldn't behoove us in the firearms sporting community to invite the Ashland politicians to go shooting, and experience it for themselves?
I'm thinking that many gun control advocates aren't shooters. Human nature being what it is, you tend to fear what you don't understand. I used to be afraid of firearms, after having a bad experience with one as a young boy. It wan an irrational fear, but one that I didn't overcome until much later in life.
About 20 years ago, I decided it was silly to be so afraid of "the gun", and purchased a small firearm, learned the safety rules, went shooting, got more comfortable, purchased another firearm....and then another....and then ANOTHER! Long story short, it's so much fun, and getting the gun haters to try it could go a long way in defusing irrational fears affecting public policy, and constitutional rights.
I'll approach some of the Ashland politicians on this issue, and will let you know what happens.
Here's one of my favorite places on the web. "Josie, The Outlaw" She talks of priciples I discuss often. In this episode, "Who Owns You"?
