Sorry to hear this, maybe she will come around.
When people stop listening, I think it works well to use the socratic method -- teach by asking questions. In this case, something like "So, if I replaced the black plastic on an assault rifle with beautiful polished walnut, should that make it legal? Going the other way, if I took my granddad's 30-30 and put an ugly black folding stock and a pistol grip on it, should that make it illegal?".UtahRSO said:I tried to explain that the guns labeled "assault weapons" were no different or more powerful than others with less "scary-looking" stocks and grips, but I could see she was just shutting down as to what I was saying. It's a sad thing that the lies of the Brady Bunch have contaminated the thinking of otherwise intelligent people like our friend.
Excellent point.Eukatae said:I think you both missed the point. The point: the second amendment exists to guarantee our access specifically to military type weapons.
