Re: A test for Anti-concealed carry

I had a long conversation with an anti gun person about a year ago. The gist of what they had to say was asking me what in the heck had happened to me to make me so afraid that I felt the need to carry a gun everywhere I go. They said that they could never live their life inside that type of fear.

Of course I explained that I wasn't "afraid" of anything and that my motivation had nothing to do with fear. Pragmatism, realism, and an unwillingness to be a helpless victim was my motivation. I just couldn't get through to him. I eventually decided that his fear of guns was the primary force behind his way of thinking. He was a 40 year old man who had never fired a gun. I offered to bring him out to my place and let him shoot some if he would listen to me on safe handling of a weapon. But he got very, very nervous and declined.
