Being from the social media generation I have an active Facebook presence. When the sandy hook gun ban scare was going around, well we all know how people love to spout off on the internet. I'd defend gun ownership in the most based logical way I could when I got the chance but more often than not was faced with the usual "plug my ears and close my eyes I know I'm right" strategy. I think I can count one instance someone cared enough to listen to me and even still they closed with "I understand why these things have a use but they should still be banned." Lately I've stopped bothering. I feel I'm wasting my time and energy trying to chance someone's mind that's already made up. Seems my effort is better spent with those on the fence open to a real discussion and to writing congress. Thought on this?
