I agreed to meet a bunch of liberals at 0700 this morning and talk to 'em as a gun owner. They don't understand us, or why we fight them. At least that's what I've been told. It's a rural group of democrats, so I don't expect the flaming Seattle-type liberals. Supposed to be about 35 of 'em, but I dunno, seems kinda early for a whole pack of 'em to be up and around.

But we will see.

If I'm not back this evening. I went down fighting.

Headed to the Gun Club to go bust some caps after talking with 'em. If I'm unsettled, shooting eases my mind and helps me get back on track. I think I'll tell 'em that this morning.   

Leaving the body armor, as well as my primary and secondary handguns at home this morning.

Wish me luck!

Guy

You're a brave man. Most liberals I've talk to.... errr I mean "TRIED" to talk to, just refuse to hear logic and common sense and get angry at the truth. So I say screw'em and "Molon Labe".

Survived. Did pretty well. In the back of the room were 1.5 women who disagreed with me, one very strongly, that's why 1.5 rather than two women disagreed.

And a 30-something fellow came up to me afterwards, outside, in the parking lot... Looked around like he didn't want to be seen, and asked me for advice on what kind of AR-15 to get so he could kill coyotes trying to get into his chicken coops!  

I'd count that as at least a partial victory!

Regards, Guy

It was funny. Some weeks ago I got a call from my buddy who works in a local gun shop. He said he'd been contacted to talk to the democrats at their regional convention. He gave 'em my name and number instead!

I did a pretty good job of keeping things mellow. Tough time with that one gal though. Dang. Glad I don't have to go home to her every night!

Sounds like you did a good job. One of the real bad problems these days is that people can't have respectful discussion and disagreements anymore, at least some. And it happens on both sides, but I think the left is a lot worse about it, just an irrational refusal to think or consider anything besides how they feel.

I teach JROTC, so a uniformed military officer immersed in what amounts to a rather liberal institution, public education. AT my current job in a GI, small town, no problems. In Topeka, while I didn't get any open hostility, I had a lot of people around who made no secret that they didn't like my presence or my program. I have talked to other guys who have schools in some areas that face really nasty stuff daily. Kansas generally is a pretty friendly place, good folks here who can stay that way through a disagreement for the most part, I suspect rural Washington is similar.
