For months I've tried to be the 'Liberal Outreach Person' for the 'Right to Keep and Bear Arms' issue. I think that I am no longer going to attempt to 'reach out' to the more conservative gun owners to try and bridge the gap on this issue. They seemed determined to marginalize all Liberals into the 'gonna grab our guns!' camp.
I feel that my efforts on this front have been wasted. Yes, I have met several folks who are able to comprehend that RKBA is NOT just a 'conservative' voice but many many more just don't 'get it'.
I am going to focus instead on reaching my fellow Liberals on this issue to show that this is a Civil Liberties issue and not just a bunch of gun-crazy xenophobic rednecks.
