    I think if the left can take the "if it can save just one life" stance (as BS as it is), then it's our obligation to have the mindset of "if I can change just one mind". Some of my coworkers are very liberal and one in particular has been all over Obama's jock strap since the election campaign. We have had many discussions about gun control and the proposed legislation, the Constitution. While we aren't on the same page he's starting to get it. He came here from Africa about 15 years ago and grew up knowing too well what tyranny looks like. He's beginning to understand that this anti-gun movement could easily lead to more tyranny in a country he's come to love. Is he an exception, given his past experiences? Maybe, but if I can lead him to understand what's happening, maybe he will in turn lead others to understand as well. I know I can't and won't change the mind of every liberal I meet but I'm going to try regardless.

    You're a soldier of truth, my friend. Usually it takes a mugging or winning the lottery to convert a Democrat.
