    I've invited a number of people to the range with me that were "afraid of guns" who left and ended up BUYING a gun shortly thereafter. There's nothing more fun than going to the range and running through a few boxes of ammo... Saying you're afraid of guns is like saying you're afraid of cooking because you have to handle a sharp knife.
    Gun Control means never having to say "I missed you."

    - Glock 27 (.40)
    - Kel-Tec p3at (.380)
    - Beretta 96FS (.40)
    - Smith & Wesson 5906 (9mm)

    Invite her to go shooting? Why would I do that? I don't even know this person. Other than the fact she is a checker at a grocery store I shop at, she is a perfect stranger to me.

    My point is, with an attitude like her's, there's nothing anyone can do or say to change her mind and it would be a waste of time to try.

    BTW, do you often invite strangers to go shooting?


    When youíre wounded and left on Afghanistanís plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
