    Morgan Spurlock is a documentary film maker andhost of the FX TV show 30 Days, in which he takes people of opposite sides of the fence on issues and puts them together so each side sees the others point of view.

    I ran across this particular video on HULU.com. Its of a woman who is anti gun who agrees to spend 30 daysin the home of a father and his 15 year old son who are gun owners and gun nuts really. This video does a great job of showing all aspects from both sides of the gun debate. It makes gun owners out to be the good guys and not the bad guys the anti's make us out to be. The topics of the RTKABA, concealed carry, open carry, gun show loop hole, gun bans, gun control (both law and weapon handling), and self defence are all covered in the video. While it is long at 45 minutes it is a good watch. I have seen it several times now and I was really ticked the first time I saw it. But it did open my eyes to allot of things I was against and how the anti's view us as gun owners. It did make me step back and think about a few things.

    I'm glad something is able to. If this cause is ever going to get anywhere significant it's going to require an understanding of the other side, not the current "**** those liberal commies!!" attitude. People in government may be wrongly intentioned and purposefully trying to disarm us, but the general population is simply misinformed or uninformed and need to be treated as such, not lumped in with the Nazis in Washington.

    For once I completely agree with you AWD.

    I have found it funny how most antis react when I ask them to come to the range with me. Very few take me up on it, but they almost always become more open to what I have to say. Even if they can't be turned into a total "gun nut", just having one less opposed to our rights is still a good thing.

    It is really cool when an anti does take you up on the offer. They almost always end up enjoying themselves. Showing an anti that mostgun owners are not"dumb rednecks" like they see on TV, is a good thing.

    Zombie Squad has it right: “We hold fast to the belief that if you are prepared for a scenario where the walking corpses of your family and neighbors are trying to eat you alive, you will be prepared for almost anything.”

    Part of the reason I always urge people to argue the point independent of other issues, especially those ties to partisan politics.

    I love the irony in the fact that the girl in the video had a friend that was killed by someone with a gun and still asks "What do you need guns for protection from?".
