When do we Talk About Politics and Guns?

By Rob Morse. December 27th, 2017

We have our priorities. First, we have to keep guns away from children if we have guns in our home. Next, the adults with a gun in their home need to know how to handle firearms safely, and hopefully, effectively. What should come next? Talking about politics and guns seems to slip off our priority list, and that carries a danger of its own. Carrying a firearm for your safety is a very rational choice, but..there is a "but." Unless you're careful, you are also at risk of malicious prosecution for infringing one of our many gun laws. When is it time to talk about gun politics with new students and existing firearms owners?

This topic came to mind when politics leaked over into the gun discussion with a group of black friends. They wanted to keep our discussion of firearms separate from a larger discussion of partisan politics. I respect their point of view. Unfortunately, we can't ignore politics because there are some very partisan politicians who want us disarmed. Let's talk about guns and gun politics..and leave the rest of politics for a later date.

Our odds of being the victim of a violent crime are between one-in-two and one-in-three during our lifetime. That means our family has better than even odds of being victimized. .......

There are many anti-gun groups but perhaps top of the list are the numerous politicians, for the most part those from the far left. These people not only wish to disregard the Second Amendment but also in the process keep playing the same old broken record such as "we need more sensible gun laws." They somehow seem to forget that there are already many thousands of "gun control" measures in existence which have little or no effect on the criminals, but they still keep trying.
