    Thanks to the folks at NSSF for tipping me off about this refreshing article from the West Liberty Index newspaper in West Liberty Iowa:

    http://westlibertyindex.com/article.php?viewID=939

    I don't think the girl is converted yet, but I think she's on the right track and maybe one day soon will be shooting her AR while listening to Cat Scratch Fever on her i-pod under her earmuffs.

    Shooting sells itself and most shooters are the nicest folks anyone would ever care to meet.
    Introduce people to the fun!

    Jeff

    Interesting read. It backs up what a lot of us have been saying and observing. Many "philosophical" anti's ("I just think guns are bad") are people that have simply not had exposure to firearms. The right approach, some getting comfortable, and a good experience change their mind. The author's observation of the children of gunners is a glimpse into the lie of "guns teach children to be psychos".

    Not a bad read.

    I've shot there, a long, long time ago.

    Kudos to those who took the trouble to introduce a potentially hostile yet inquisitive journalist to the joys of shooting! :cool:

    Wow, that's a great story! If we could all just get a liberal reporter to our ranges and gun clubs, it might actually make a widespread difference. I've extended such invitations to my anti-gun senators, but they have yet to take me up on the offer. Maybe the press would be a better place to start.

    In a constant state of confusion.
    FITB, and that is a good life lesson, regardless of political beliefs.

    email to Sara

    I just wrote an email to Sara congratulating her on her range trip and her (beginning) awakening. Every one here should do the same. This is a woman who is a hard core liberal and her eyes have been opened just the slightest bit now. With encouragement she might even WANT to further her education.

    All the best...
