With the latest shootings in Dayton and El Paso, there has been a predictable rash of threads here of, "When they ban my guns, where can I hide them?", "Which infringement will you be okay with?", "Our political leader lied again!", and the like. How about, instead of complaining, cowing, and accepting fate, we realize that it is VERY unlikely that a stroke of a pen will cause a massive disruption (this time), and start writing our representatives, donate time and money as able, and try to reach out to those on the fence? Sitting on this forum, where most are of a similar mind, does nothing but stir a pot that is already thoroughly blended. We can't change anything when everyone we talk to is already in agreement. Our time will be better spent discussing with those who are not already vehemently against us, and with those who are elected to represent us.
