If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.
Ask her how much the class costs, the gun costs, practice ammo costs and then ask how hard does she think it is for poor people who live in crime riddled areas to properly protect themselves/family when the gov't charges fees and taxes. Ask her how knowing who the legal owner of a gun is prevents the criminal who stole it from committing a crime or identifying that criminal.
You can drag a horse to water but you can't make it drink.... Let it be. I'd be proud that my daughter could sit down and have a conversation with me about anything. So what if she feels that way. She is entitled to her opinion and eventually will or may decide on her own toward your side of the debate. Bottom line is there is no reason to disrespect your daughters opinion. She is obviously well grounded anyway. Let her be herself... I think you done good raising a woman that thinks for herself. At least she is a gun toting shooter willing to take classes for better gun knowledge. I know most 20 somethings would not bother. They are too much into the object and not the journey...
I say good for her... and good for you doing the dad thing...

Your mistake was linking Hannity. I am 55 and I can't stomach Hannity and his smarmy "let not your heart be troubled "
I feel your pain. Only it's my wife that's been giving me grief! She stradles the line between liberal and conservative. I've taken her shooting before and she does enjoy it. She doesn't think guns should be banned but she does believe there isn't any reason for civilians to have AR15's. We've had it out several times in the last month and I finally realized....IT ISN'T HELPING! She believes what she wants regardless of the facts and reason. There comes a point where you just have to agree to disagree.
