I did not know where to put this so feel free to move it.
In the past 2 weeks I have had no fewer than 3 dramatically anti gun friends ask for recommendations for handguns and shotguns. These are individuals that I have had heated debates with as recently as September this year.
My priest could have asked me to recommend a good strip club, and I would have been less shocked. One of them had presented the argument "only criminals need guns... if you own a gun, you are half way to being a criminal." Another's opinion was that nyc and Chicago gun control would work if it was applied in all 50 states via attrition. Etc etc etc. Arguments with brick walls have had better talking points ...
Took 1 friend to the range. He did fine though I was shocked how uninformed he was about firearms to have such a strong position against them.
Glad to see some people can swallow the crow and have an honest change of heart.
Anyone else experiencing this phenomenon ?
