    Another option is to quit waiting to counter punch and always playing defense. We need to stop reacting to the opposition and be proactive.

    We need to keep pushing REAL SOLUTIONS and go on the offensive.

    What are we doing about our mental health system? Why are our politicians refusing to address REAL problems?Here's a perfect example of a story that we should be shouting about from the rooftops...http://m.nbcbayarea.com/nbcbayarea/pm_117573/contentdetail.htm?contentguid=iXcL9f0w

    What are we doing to secure our schools and kids? Why are we ignoring this in favor of magazine limits, background checks, eliminating milsurps, etc?

    We need to start a proactive approach that is based on facts, reason, statistics, etc. We need to take control of this debate and stop reacting and letting these idiots create the talking points. They are mostly uninformed on guns in general and they use emotion because facts and statistics are not on their side.

    We need to initiate and maintain a voice and stop waiting for these idiots to throw the first punch!

    In a part of Utah that resembles Tattooine.
    It's not like they don't try to publicize this information. But the mainstream media isn't interested in helping. If it doesn't bleed, it doesn't lead.

    Seems like "they don't want to hear it" is a common theme in this thread, and I agree. The thing is, they in that sentence doesn't refer to the average American, it refers to the liberal media and crazed antis like Feinstein.

    There are still tens of thousands of people in this country who can be swayed one way or the other. Those are the people we need to make this information available to. I've converted most of my in-laws, beginning with the youngest teens in the home, up through some of the oldest adults (the younger they are, the easier they are to convert). My mother-in-law, who was a diehard anti when I met her, has proved to be a difficult egg to crack; and often, it's true that she simply doesn't want to hear it. Except now, she has six kids between the ages of 13 and 26 (I know, I know...) who won't shut up about how guns save lives. She can't ignore them forever...

    Bring this type of information to everyone you know. This (link) is an invaluable tool.

    One on one communication has a better chance of getting someone off the fence than an anonymous commercial message. If every gun owner moved just one fence sitter to our side of the fence, there would be a major shift in attitude that would be difficult for the antis to overcome.
