3. Do you really mean that? I somehow doubt it.

Day in and day out, here you are promoting your cause, tirelessly, ran or shine. I can respect that. I just ask that you consider the opposing view point for a moment. I admit, I've posted some harsh criticism of gun control advocates and I apologize for that. I'm willing to have an honest dialogue about guns. I admit I don't have it all figured out. But the stuff that gets posted about gun owners around here is over the top and comical. You can't have a meaningful discussion if folks just want to ban users, hide posts, or mock.

Look at the state of these gun focused discussion forums for a moment. The broader DU community has basically sent us to our respective rooms so we won't interrupt the others. GCRA has very little activity, and this forum doesn't have much more. Perhaps we as a group are doing something wrong. We aren't going to go out to GD and win hearts and minds if GC&RKBA and GCRA can't even talk to each other without name calling, memes, and hysterics.
