    I've said most gun control arguments are usually very narrow, because you can't look at gun control in whole without destroying the other arguments for it. Here's an article hitting on that concept.

    The anti-gun-rights "progressives" are NOT interested in winning us over. They are NOT interested in having a heart to heart conversation with us. Their entire M.O. has been to demonize us, and claim that we are part of the problem of "gun violence".

    Claiming to want a dialogue with us is merely a ruse to try and trick us into agreeing to further incremental infringements on our rights, while at the same time using the fake attempt at dialogue as a club to beat us with when we don't want to hear their nonsense.

    That's very true and something we should remember. They aren't talking to us, they are preaching to their base and point a finger at us. That's not a conversation with us. So, when we are talking to them, we should remember that points that resonate with us are not going to connect with them. We need to make points that people "on the fence" will get.

    IOW, is what you're saying just going to sound good to us or will it make sense to the many undecided minds that want to protect their families?
