And it is as much her right to dislike firearms as it is our right to like them. But it is not the right of those who dislike firearms to tell us we can't like them, own them, carry them, or shoot them simply because they 'feel' we can't be trusted to do so responsibly. No one is born with a risk free guarantee that they will live unscathed to a ripe old age.

We are approaching times where opinions won't matter.
There will be those that give up freedom for temporary "safety".
If you are not a member of the NRA, you had better become one now while we still have a constitution.

Thats why ppl who don't like guns don't know I have them or carry them. Sometimes you can agree on alot of things but guns...

My friends do not seem to have a problem with it, and if they were against it I still would be friends with them but I would tell them this is my choice for protecting me and my family, just like they choose to drink alcohol and I do not

In my classification system, I have many acquittances, several buddies, and a few friends.

The anti-gun argument is always based on emotions, the pro-gun argument is always based on logic. The two really are not compatible in a debatable forum. Typically if you can swing the discussion to these points and remind them that it is natural for a female to use emotion when making decisions whereas it is typical for a male to use logic. Then the root of the issue is who makes decisions around here? Maybe Susan B. Antony didn't do us any favors after all? Or maybe we just let the feminization of our male population get out of hand?
As you may guess, guys rarely bring this question up around me more than once.

I hate to brag, folks. Then again, we got a sayin' here in Texas that "them as can brag without lyin' got a right to brag."
I live in Texas. We have more guns per capita, and more concealed-carry permit holders per capita, than any state in the Union. I've heard a rumor there are three or four people in Texas who are anti-gun, but I don't personally know any of them. Even the liberal Obama-supporters in Texas own guns.
God bless Texas.

yes, in a professional capacity. That doesn't mean he/she has to do so when not working.

Tell him if he has an interest in preserving any semblance of a friendship, you'll have to agree to disagree on the issue. If that doesn't work, engage in conversation with him on that subject at your peril. I've had to be that frank that with a few acquaintances and ended up putting one fully at arms length because he wouldn't let the subject go.

Like I've said on other forums, you just have to develop a signature way to end that conversation. When they try to pull that anti-gun stuff on me this is exactly what I look like: . I kind of look at them with a zombie like stare while smoking a cigarette and say, "Wwweeeeelllllllllllllllllll (while stretching/grunting real loud)...I better be hittn' the ol' dusty trail, have yourself a good day there sir and God bless (I say this line real slow and drawn out to be sarcastic, like I'm some dummy who can't understand things at their highly intellectual level of thinking)" then I tip my hat just to be a jerk and leave.
If I don't have a smoke, I'll chew on some hay while saying it just to look the part....what....I live in Kansas....chewing on hay is socially acceptable around here.
I don't always carry two concealed S&W 500's.........JUST KIDDING!

I counter with, "Let's start locking up all the crazy people." There are a lot fewer crazy people than there are guns and it's the crazy people doing most of the killing.

I have a buddy like that. We've know each other since 4th grade (early '70's). He became liberal as he got older, I became conservative as I grew older. We just learned not to talk about certain subjects that we'll never agree on, and have fun talking about the things we do agree on.
I will rarely post, but will read (and hopefully learn) a lot
