Hello neighbors. I just posted a PM to a patriotic member of NWFA. I am -well- aware that there are lotsa folks who will disagree with me on this topic, but I just want to be heard. We all have the right to free speech, just as we should have the natural right to self defense (2A.) This post and the PM are not meant to be telling anyone that he/she is wrong for their words or viewpoints... It's just my words and my viewpoint. "..... [ ....] I have been working pretty hard to convert some of my ANTI- 2A coworkers, relatives, friends, and even strangers to the light of what the 2A really means and what it is for. When a PRO 2A person uses a derogatory term like lib-tard, it so instantly prejudices some of the uneducated liberals against us that even some of them who COULD be educated go cold and solid into the anti- 2A camp. I have personally recruited about a dozen people who were afraid of guns and shooting by being friendly and inviting them shooting, a couple of them by even "tricking" them into shooting by going hiking or picnicking up in the national forest. :thumbup: A really quiet .22 (CCI's CB Longs are great in a bolt action!) and some of these people are regulars now. I would NEVER want a difference in opinion about other political issues to get in the way of recruiting for the most precious and important of our Natural Rights, the 2nd Amendment. Very surely, this is just my opinion friend. It HAS worked for me, and I hope it will work for others. Those that are 100% against this Natural Right aren't worth the effort of trying to educate (for me) but I still hope to set a good example. I understand that a lot of fellows are just angry about the condition we find ourselves in, but I hope that as a community we can be mellow but ever vigilant. Your compatriot, Mike "
