Who is the common enemy of all gun owners and 2A supporters? Before we engage in knee jerk reactions or conditioned responses, lets look hard at the question. There seem to be gun owners and 2A supporters of almost all philosophical and political persuasions. These are people we rub shoulders with at the range and gun shows. They all want their 2A rights, and I'm not willing to call them the enemy just because we don't agree on everything. There are people completely indifferent to the subject of firearms, and have no knowledge or interest in them. They're not the enemy. Then there are people who are vehemently anti-gun. These folks stand against the 2A armed with little more than emotion and ignorance. When I ask myself why these people believe so many lies and distortions about firearms, I started to get the idea who the common enemy is. I believe one of our greatest common enemies is the media. As gun owners we are misrepresented constantly as backwards, ignorant, and dangerous "gun nuts". We know that our community is better than that. On the whole we are probably a little more responsible and independent than most. So what can all of us do to influence the media to fairly report on the firearms community? Share your ideas! This has been a long post, so I'll share mine separately.
