So as some of you know I am a democrat along with a few others on this board, but I am slowly moving to the right. However this sunday its going to be a good thing I am a democrat. I am part of the Gun Owners Caucus of the democratic party of oregon and I am part of a panel in front of the state central committee on gun control. I am discussing gun owners and representing gun owners from around the state. So I need facts and statistics to back up my argument, some people there will be closed minded (as with any political party) and will argue with me and I will stay calm however the reason we are going in front of them is to better shape their views of guns and the positive light in which we(FMA members and other gun owners) hold guns and to let them see another side, outside of the violence they see on TV and read about in the paper. Here are the topics i am supposed to touch on and a few notes from me. Name & County you are from - Travis, Clackamas County Occupation/business. Are you a veteran?I own a successfull heating and air conditioning company with 16 employees Gun related hobbies or interests (hunting, target shooting, Cowboy Action Shooting, collecting, self-defense etc)Target shooting, firearm building and collection If you are willing to share where you fall on the political spectrum that would be great. Just mentioning a few other issues that you are for or against or by saying something like "Progressive", "Blue Dog", "Socialist" or whatever.This is all me and i will tell them as left leaning as possible to sound as much like them and as little like you guys lol. Where you stand on firearms issues. Some examples of things to talk about: CHL Record Privacy, CHL Reciprocity, "Assault Weapons" (this will have be defined), magazine capacity limits, etc. The idea is not to start a fight or argue with each other. The idea is to show diversity and speak calmly about our opinions. We have people in our caucus who will call black guns "Assault Rifles" and people in our Caucus with NFA guns, CHLs and or FFLs. The point is to show our diversity.I obviously have Machine Guns, Suppressors, "evil black rifles" high capacity magazines, a CHL so will be expressing why I have them and need some help defending why i should own 30 round mags and machine guns. Thanks for your comments in advance, please don't say stupid bubblegum, I am trying to help forward gun ownership and help democrats see what i see.
