    I had an interview with Ruxandra Guidi, an independent journalist, today. It was very informal and she was quite a nice person. Before she started the interview, I asked where she stood on 2A. Her reply was that she didn’t want guns around, no guns. I told her that I don’t like to confront people, but to educate them. She seemed to like that part really well.



    She asked about when I started getting interested in political movement with guns, How I feel about Obama and his stance on gun ownership. What was I expecting to accomplish with OC legislation. Things of that nature. She is going to email me a digital audio file of the interview and I will promptly post it here. I also gave her a CD with some quotes from our Founding Fathers and some other people, not only on guns and 2A, but socialism as well. I also directed her to www.jpfo.org and their video “Innocents Betrayed”.



    Now the good part. I invited her to a gun range and she accepted. I’m going to try to get as many gun people there as possible. I’m going to invite people from other gun forums as well. She is going to bring her photographer husband, too. This should be a really great time. She wants to doit before the state legislature convenes, but I’m not sure if it can be put together by then.



    OK, anybody in the Austin area should try to attend this. It will be an education opportunity we don’t want to pass up. She has never fired a gun of any kind before, so it will be extremely educational for her. I’m not sure exactly when, but will keep you all informed. I will need input as to when would be the best date for you. Best to be on a Saturday I suppose.

    * gun culture (vs. arms control) in brazil The World, 07.04.08: Brazil has more gun deaths than any other country that isn’t in a state of war. According to United Nations data, over 500,000 people were killed by guns between 1979 and 2003. And currently, 39,000 people die from firearms every year. In 2005, many Brazilians saw a radical answer to their crime problem — a nationwide referendum to ban guns altogether. The referendum failed to pass — but the laws tightened anyway. Yet Brazil remains awash with guns.

    [...] But in reality, their work on the ground seemed to me very much like another US military operation. When the helicopter landed, a group of kids and young men gathered nearby full of curiosity. Two well-built security guards from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service carrying compact sub-machine guns guided us out of the aircraft. Only one person in the group spoke French, a Canadian; none spoke Creole. As the boys followed us into the heart of Belle-Anse, people in their front porches stared and some followed, and I realized that our unexpected parade into their little village was already too rushed, and none too friendly.[...]

    Think she's a liberal?, from her website. "After earning a Master’s degree in journalism from U.C. Berkeley in 2002...."

    I'll giver her the benefit of doubt.

    Rodbender, How is it she came upon interviewing you?

    I drew the short straw. Actually, it was between Ian and myself and Ian was busy. We are the 2 in the Austin area.
