I think you missed the point I was trying to make (which was not too serious, BTW).

In other words, she has the preconceived idea that "mothers" are likely to be upset by guns. She has formed an opinion about all members of that certain demographic group, even though she obviously does not personally know all of them. That is the very definition of prejudice. I'll quote the vast internets for you:
It tickles my funny bone to see a hypocrite in action. I work in a very politically correct environment, so I catch myself laughing, daily.
A prejudice is a preconceived
, or judgment toward a group of people
or a single person because of race, social class, gender
, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, disability, political beliefs , religion, line of work or other personal characteristics

I agree that there is a note of pandering in her message, due probably to the fact that my original email didn't place me on either side of the tape.
I wanted as unbiased an opinion as I could get, without it being tailored to my view, so i didn't mention that I carried, only that I was curious what their policies were.
