    The NRA is the one that "get's it." They're fighting for 2A and like us, are sick of all the anti's trying to be our mommies. What's it to them, what single reason THEY can think of for anyone to have an "assault" rifle. By the way, the word assault just scares people but like someone's sig on this forum says, "Assault is a behavior, not a device." Hell, I have a Ruger #1, 375 H &H mag. that could assault someone, but not all by itself. We're responsible people, we don't need mommies. I don't know why in the world anyone would want a VW Bug either because I wouldn'thave one. But I sure wouldn't try to stop anyone from getting one. It's NONE of my business. And, I'm sure people have been killed in and by them too. You know, the dreaded "Assault Beetles."

    Wow, you know that things have finally got bad, when the libs can't move and stay and work and play away from the diversity that they advocate and love so much, being so in touch. Maybe, they will also want to control our borders and have illegal aliens obey police orders.

    To some, he gets it, to others, he doesn't. But I think its pretty safe to say that in either case its a positive step.

    He does, a little. What he "gets" is that gun control doesn't reduce crime, and in fact makes it easier for the criminals. It just MIGHT get him to question other "facts" that he has so readily accepted as well. It may not be much, but it's a start.

    You're not going to get an instant change. This is a tiny first step - and in Fresno, of all places. We SHOULD be happy about it.

    Well at least something changed his mind. Some people don't have the ability to change their mind even when they realize the other side is right. The will depend their stand to the end no matter what they see or learn. Opposing viewpoints sometimes never sink in even if they are obviously right.

    Not everyone reaches the conclusion at the same time. Most behavior is learned and some people have to overcome an old mindset. It goes both ways.....

    Well said.
    Seems like some members here would be quicker with the hangmans noose than some of his liberal friends.

    Agreed.
    The right to to own a gun is something he doesn't have his head around yet

    Yeah, I've noticed that.

    Give him *some* credit. The guy changed his mind on one part of the issue. With a little luck, and some others around him to nudge him, he may see the rest.

    But if he's stomped on because he isn't there yet, he'll never get there.

    Sheesh.

    I feel weird defending the liberal :) But, he did say that "every responsible adult should consider carrying a firearm"

    Doesn't sound like an elitist who is looking for something to benefit himself but not others.

    Have you read the whole article?

    Here Mr. Enlightenment makes this statement...

    Now, I don't agree with much of what the NRA advocates. For example, I can't think of a single reason anyone -- other than law enforcement -- needs an assault rifle.

    Meaning that he thinks that ONLY law enforcement needs assault weapons.

    Meaning that some liberal author that cant even properly describe what a real assault weapon is, wants to prevent ME from having one because he doesn't like the way they look.

    But I believe in a person's right to defend himself. I believe, too, that an armed society is a polite society.

    Sure...I can defend myself as long as it docent shoot to fast,too many, or is black.

    That sounds pretty "elitist" to me.

    With "friends" like that, who needs enemies?
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Hotguns, I get what you are saying. And that jumped out at me as well. But the rest of it was a pleasant surprise. I see it as a foothold, not a victory. You have to start somewhere. And for folks who have been surrounded by the anti agenda, that seems like a pretty good start.

    IIRC, Gary Kleck started out by just questioning the validity of the anti statistics. Neither pro nor anti as far as I know. He has since produced some rather pro gun statistics about defensive use of firearms. All because he started questioning and then started looking into it himself.

    Heck, getting into CC and OC has changed my attitude towards black guns. I used to be one of the, as long as it's not mine guys. Don't get me wrong, I never see myself owning one for personal reasons. But I'll fight for others rights to own them. It's a slippery slope I'm no longer willing to start down without a fight. Maybe it's a start for him, who knows.
