Very good read. Its always good to hear peoples stories of "winning hearts, changing minds".
As I read your story I couldn't help but think back to my childhood and the words of my father ring in my head still, "The right to keep and bear arms is essential to freedom. You cant call the cops when they are the ones knocking at your door asking for your guns."
This site has very much recharged my 2A batteries, and I am ever grateful to everyone that has shared their stories and opinions.
