Thread: National Gun Appreciation Day - January 19, 2013 (link)

    I always thought of this forum being a few steps ahead of congress in that we could disagree without being disagreeable.

    Like it or not, the gun debate is going to be tried and decided in the court of public opinion.

    Since you aked how I really feel, I'll tell you:

    I think two days of coverage featuring a great role model like Kimberly Rhode who won five olympic shooting medals instead of another polarizing rant by another extremist would probably serve all of us better when the politicians start voting.

    Then again, I could be wrong.

    Many other groups want Americans to respect Their culture,, but then in the next breath, want laws and activities that many in our society hold legally dear to their heart,, become contriban.
    Its time to stand up and address this mentality...

    I think we are in this problem because we have hidden for far too long.....Maybe too long to recover. In the larger cities hunters and shooter have hidden their weapons and activities because it may upset some of the non hunting shooting public. By being invisible to the non hunting shooting public they began to fear the guns because of the unfamiliarity with them.
    If we had been more visual people would better understand them.
