Yeah,I really hate the negative stigma around guns! I remember the last family reunion people were treated me like I committed a crime because I carry.. Even when I go through the proper channels, get my CHL, do the training they still don’t accept me simply because I enjoy firearms. Every time I hear or see that some irresponsible person shot someone I get pissed because I know regardless of how I carry; uneducated people seem to want to lump all gun owners as criminals. I specifically like to bring those type of people to the gun range and give them a positive experience in hope of charging their perception of firearms!
And watch those same friends and relatives jump behind you for protection if they ever saw random violence jump off out in public.
