    I've been thinking about getting a MAGA hat just for fun with the relatives. :D
    Let me know how that goes.

    I'm going to have a liberal house guest in a couple of weeks, for 2-3 days - my wife's favorite cousin and a very nice person. The last time we had a conversation, it meandered into gun control, and he started crying the first time I asked a logical question. I thought that I was being very civil, even gentle. But, when I looked around, all of the women had gathered round, and were 'shooting daggers' at me with their eyes. All of the other men had quietly melted into the dark corners, or bolted towards the great outdoors. When I noticed that I was alone in the midst of a pack of mother hens, I quickly joined them.

    I have never quite gotten the hang of "getting in touch with my feminine side." How do you have a meaningful conversation with someone who cannot even bear to think about the possibility that violence might actually exist, somewhere in the world?
    Tell them you will respect their views and will be a good witness with your cell phone instead of your firearm when some gremlin confronts them to steal, rape, kill, and destroy them.
    Is that not feminine enough?:)   
    I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn away from their ways and live. Eze 33:11

    Well...the story goes like this: His father was an alcoholic, and abusive to his wife and kids. He held a gun to the head of his wife for hours one night, while all the kids were forced to watch. So, I guess it's possible that he has a visceral fear that cannot be overcome by logical argument on that subject.

    Anyway, he is a decent man, whom I otherwise respect, so I will be a good host by not bringing up an uncomfortable subject. Controversy can be huge fun, but not at the expense of a nice person who doesn't really mean any harm.

    My sister was like that. The sight of a gun actually made her sick to her stomach. But then, she had other problems too. 

    It's a source of great pride for me, that when my name is googled, one finds book titles and not mug shots. Daniel C. Chamberlain
