Having a Positive Outreach

Just put this out on Facebook thought I would share it with my one conferred reader:

“It is important time to stand up and be counted, please join the NRA, the Second Amendment Foundation, and any other gun rights organization you agree with especially in your state. But, DO NOT get dragged down into a screaming match with people who disagree with you. I have included a shot of the response I had to a old friend of mine saying some pretty crazy thinks about guns and how we all want to fight the government. He is a good person who is uneducated about actual guns. I replied with the following hoping that this gentle word of rights will make him more open to hearing what he might let me talk to him about another day. The resent events in this country have been horrific and people are still very upset. Getting upset at them is not the way to build allies. It could, and probably will happen that this friend may never even consider changing his view or hearing anything else I have to say on the matter. That is his choice and if we believe on freedom the way we all talk about then we have to be ok with it. Maybe, just maybe this is the first positive interaction he has ever had with someone who believe like I do in the 2nd Amendment.”Screen shot 2013-01-16 at 1.31.56 PM
