i kinda understand too. i get the feeling that kids and guns are kinda frowned upon. not from my folks ofcourse, but from people in my hood. there is one oldtimer who is a inactive marine and he thinks my weapon is great. but others on the street see me walking my AR15 to my car to go to the range and they look at me as if i am some criminal! i also get the feeling that uninformed people think they are always right and there should be no other opinion than theres!

You got to remember anyone over 50 has real trouble believing someone in a position of authority can do something wrong .

My parents used to be hard core Democrats - I even first registered as a Democrat because where I grew up "If you want a job in this town, you better be in the right party." Then came Ruby Ridge, Somalia, Waco, Elian Gonzales, the Jarbridge Shovel Brigade/Federal land grabs, and the Klinton/Reno reign amongst other liberal agendas including gun control. Well, it may have taken 50+ years for them to come around, but they made it [:D] For starters tell'em to turn off the liberal drivel spouted by MSNBC and CNN - and go to Fox News (in fact, I think only they reported on the Klinton land grabs out west) If all else fails, put them in a nursing home.

Got the typical "You dont know what your talking about there has to be a reason why they shot him" or "She was armed!".

Ask your parents what the [i]reasons[/i] were in each of these cases - do they know? Also, ask them: 1) Why the FBI put away a known innocent man for 30 years in order to keep an mob informant from going to prison. 2) Why the agents who were responsible for this aren't being held to the fire for it now. 3) Why one of these agents has had the gall to state, "...what are you gonna to do about it?" (according to an "O'Reilly Factor" report). 4) Why the US DOJ won't even issue an apology. This happened, apparently, w/ former director J. Edgar Hoover's knowledge (surprise!, surprise!), & Sen. Dan Burton was [i]so[/i] impressed w/ the reasons behind it that he stated (on "60 Minutes") that he was going to introduce a proposal to have Hoover's name stricken from all credible mention (Building title names, etc.). Why are such actions so worthy of blind respect? Good gov't is grounded in accountability, not federal employee immunity, secrecy & obfuscation of the truth.

Get yourself a hard case for your weapon. You don't want to shout to every two bit thief that you have expensive rifles.
