they just don't understand that a gun isn't necessarily evil.
We had a very similar debate at my office the other day, there were 22 of us for numbers. When asked, all but 8 were anti gun, of those 4 were not for assault rifles. The 4 that were for guns as a whole, no matter what they are, are all gun owners, and all but 1 of the rest have actually been around guns, shot them, etc.
I made the decision we are all going to take the afternoon Friday to go and shoot a little. Not making anybody shoot a gun, but I want them to be around them to see why people enjoy having and using them. Amazingly, nobody fought about having to go. Best company outing I have planned yet, if I do say so myself.
