    WOW! I just found out my BEST FRIEND is a gun control freak.

    So I was talking to my friend Kara a few minutes ago. She needed a topic for a persuasice essay for her college classes. I said "how about the whole thing with people wanting to take away our guns"

    then...

    it happened...

    Kara: But I'm for gun control. I've seen people get shot, it's not cool.

    ***

    OMFG

    My best friend in the world is one of the people I hate the most in life.

    A gun control, 2nd Amendment bashing, anti gun liberal freak?

    Starting to be a bad day. :sport21:

    Try giving her the facts in a non-confrontational manner. Since you two are close friends, I would imagine that she thinks enough of you to hear you out and maybe give some credence to what you have to say.

    "I've seen people get shot, it's not cool"

    So the gun was the one that shot th epeople? NOT the person holding the gun? How silly of me.

    I am steamed right now. I'm just waiting for the whole fight to come up about why we need guns.

    OTOH, Bruce, I might be getting a new 1911!

    Might be??? your spusto say I'm getting one and I don't care what it costs I need it.
    Trust me you'll enjoy 1911 ownership. We have a private section of the board where we go and discuss all aspects of shooting and tuning and smithing on them. After you buy it and give a full report, I'll email you the password and buy the first round :1prost:

    And Good Thing Ya Didn't Come Right Out & Say It.

    Bruce.


    Justin:
    Actually it is the perfect chance to sway her opinion a bit. She already knows you really well as a person.
    Just pull up 9/11 & John Lee Malvo The Sniper into a future conversation.
    That should get the conversation started off on the right foot.

    BTW: I used to be surrounded by Liberal "Guns Are Yukky" People.
    It's honestly a "workable situation" ~ once they know you personally.
    They sort of look at you as a protector & not an adversary.
    It's actually kinda funny because they will STILL hate guns BUT, your personal gun will be OK!
    Figure that one out.
    STRANGE....But, it's true.
    Try hard to keep the friendship.

    I've had 2 1911's before. Does that count?

    Wait, you guys have a private board and I'm not included?!?!?!

    Hopefully she's just talking out of pure emotion and she's still salvageable on the subject when it's discussed thoroughly. Hopefully.

    I can understand hard feelings when one watches someone else die. There's a lot of anger and blame, and that tends to be placed somewhere, but those need to be placed in the right direction.

    My younger cousin was negligently shot in the back in the head by his step-brother while they were out shooting snapping turtles in the pond. He died. It was not cool. But I don't blame the gun - I blame the moron with the gun.

    If she is your friend she should be open to discussion where you may both present your sides [and we all know you're right *wink*]. I find that most of the time people like this are just uneducated about guns, and people like us have become a bit desensitized to them, creating potential conflict.

    But remember this, you can always agree to disagree - that is what makes this country great. [ok I know that was a sappy cliche but IT'S TRUE!]
