Good lord... Senator Ginny Burdick (Oregon's biggest anti-2a politician) demonstrates all those outlined "self-defense" mechanisms.
Seen this before.
The portion of the population that's genuinely "anti-gun," is very small. Most people, frankly know nothing about the subject and don't particularly care. In fact, they tend towards supporting gun rights, to the extent they even understand the term.
That's why the antis have to lie through their teeth and rely upon emotional arguments made in the aftermath of some tragedy to get anything passed.
I assume people who are genuinely anti-gun have other "issues" than guns. Political, emotional, psychological, it really makes no difference. These are not people we will EVER get to change their minds and it's futile to even try.
Which means we need to work on the OTHER 70% of the population and be good ambassadors for gun rights and stick to the facts. After all, they are already largely on our side. Gun control is a dead issue for most politicians in the U.S. Congress and it's the kiss of death for a huge number of state reps and senators.
Making sure politicians pay a heavy price for supporting gun control and educating our neighbors and co-workers does more to help gun rights than all the demonstrations and expressions of outrage in the world.
A woman who's been taken to the range and had a wonderful time learning to shoot will never listen to a gun control argument the same way again.
One neighbor at a time, one voter at a time, we WILL win this fight.

Teacher with long gun slung over her shoulder!!!
Yep, did this with the wife and step daughter, they had a great time. Unfortunately the step daughter died in 2008 and I can't get my wife to go again. She just says that without her daughter along it wouldn't be the same. But at least she has stopped being a single party (Demorat) voter!
