Never AG in the sense that guns should be banned. I grew up hunting with my dad. My dad hated hand guns and I never saw a single one around the house when I was young. He carried a carbine in his truck as he carried cash from a restaurant business often. What else would you expect a WW2 infantry soldier to carry? There was a time in my life that I thought access to hand guns should be restricted but not banned. I then realized that carrying a concealed weapon was a necessity where I lived. I've had a permit for 24 years now and I practice with my carry every week. I think a lot of that had to do with my dads views of hand guns but he grew up in a different time and place. I'm now a proponent of constitutional carry. The stats just don't support permitted carry. It's just a burden for law abiding citizens. Hows that for a 180?
